L’Oreal Infallible Foundation – Monday Review

I bought L’Oreal Infallible Foundation after asking on Twitter for any cheaper alternatives to Estee Lauder Double Wear. Its a more top end drugstore foundation priced at £12.99 for quite a small bottle but I’d been told it was great and very buildable.

On my hand it blended very smooth and with a nice finish.
On my face I found the texture of it quite hard to blend and it was better applied with fingers and the buffed with my Real Techniques face brush. I found it did cling to any dry patches and I felt it didn’t have the same power to cover as Double Wear does.
*
It had a nice almost matte finish so I didn’t have to use too much powder and in photos made my skin look fairly flawless but upclose in a  mirror I wasn’t that keen on the finish as it was a little patchy on any dry areas and not as smooth as I’d like.
*
All in all I thought the foundation was ok if the price tag had been £6.99 – £7.99 like its Rimmel or Revlon competitors, but for £12.99 I felt a bit disappointed. I will continue to use it  as it might grow on me but I may reserve it for when my skin is really moisturized and when I’m not so worried about looking flawless.

Have you got any good Double Wear foundation alternatives??Ps I’ve entered myself into Fever’s Competition to win the chance to model their new collection – I’d love to win a place as its such a dream to have the chance to model and feature on a brands website who’s clothes have that Vintage edge. I’d really love a vote if you like my look  – click on the picture below

    Thanks for sharing the review. I’m still searching for a good foundation/bb cream myself, yet I’ve only tried the catrice bb cream, though I think there are more out there to try out. :)

    I’ve voted for you in the competition. I can understand that you want to become a model, I share this feeling with you! ;)
