A must.

This is my go to foundation. I have combination skin, and this give me a silky matte finish, which stays on the whole day, and is even more effective when compared with the infallible powder. This product also doesn't transfer, which is a big plus :)

QUALITY MATTE DRUGSTORE FOUNDATION

This foundation has a really smooth matte finish. Since I have dry skin, I make sure that I moisturise my face with well ahead of time before I use this because the matte finish can emphasise flakiness and dry/patchy skin. The coverage is medium but buildable. A major plus is that it is so lightweight and feels like you aren't even wearing any foundation!

L'Oreal infallible

Hii!
As someone who has combination skin I had struggled to enjoy this product completely. My skin looked cakey in some places (around my dry spots) and oily around my T zone.
I had prepped my face accordingly using my everyday skin care routine.
Some days it had agreed with my skin and some not.

However, I would recommend this to other due to the great coverage and feel of the foundation! ?
Maybe I should give it another try.

Infallible

My daily go to. I have combination skin (oily t zone and dry patches). This is an amazing foundation for the price and lasts me through a sometimes 12 hour workday. I also use Estee Lauder Double Wear but this is so much more affordable.

Oily skin go-to

I'm a girl with very oily skin, and I loved this product! For the price you pay you get an amazingly effective product that will last all day! I do wear a powder finish over it, just because I'm extra oily, but really, this product surprised me so much. I usually have to go for the more expensive products because of the oiliness and the more cost-effective products usually just slip off. But this one is amazing and I love it!

Low priced, high quality - love it!!

I have been searching for a good foundation for my skin for a while now. This one has an amazing coverage, but still looks so natural. No shine, and not grey under flash light. It's the best!! And it fits my skin tone perfectly.

Always a winner

This is the best, most Amazing foundation I have ever used!
I used to use Mac and I thought I would try something more affordable, I researched and watched many Youtube tutorials and so many influencers recommended this foundation, I went out and got me some, and ive been happy ever since!
I wont be using any other foundation! this is great for my combination skin, it doesn't make my skin go dry or flakey, it doesn't look oily, I don't even need to use a powder for touch ups! with the right setting spray, it lasts all day till I get home after work without having to re apply ! this is a winner in my books!

L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte

I finally decided to purchase this foundation - after months of research. The shade selection is extremely limited, so I watched videos, read reviews and swatched in store before deciding to go with 20 Sand.

The lightest shade 11 Vanilla is quite fair with pink undertones and one shade up to my shade is 22 Radiant Beige with yellow undertones, but it looked a tad too dark for my skintone.

20 Sand has neutral undertones and it is great for anyone who is around NC20 in MAC. I found that when I apply my MSF Natural in Light Plus over top, it does balance out the neutral quite well.

I must say that I really enjoy the formula of this foundation. It blends out very easily, it looks really smooth on the skin and it provides great medium coverage. I don't find it to be overly drying, so with the right skin prep, it could work for any skin type. It does not feel heavy on the skin either.

This foundation lasts all day on my oily skin. I do start to glisten at around 14:00, but I don't get excessively oily. This foundation does not move or fade at all.

Overall, I think it is a great product at a really affordable price. I just wish that there were more shades to choose from. Still definitely worth a try...

My ride or die foundation!

This foundation is perfect for oily skin and even if your skin isn't oily, but well exfoliated, I think dry skin can handle this too. It's matte but I don't find it overly drying. I have repurchased this over and over. I would gladly recommend it to everybody. I featured it in my top 10 makeup products over here:

Perfect for dry skin

When I first tried this foundation I was afraid it might dry my skin out because its a matte foundation. But this product kept my skin hydrated and did not dry out my skin like other matte foundations do. You will never go wrong with this foundation. Perfect for everyday use.

L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation :)

I tried this foundation out recently as I wanted to dabble in some fuller coverage foundations :p

I love the smell of this product, no smell of chemicals or cosmetics, just a slight pleasant fragrance :) The glass bottle feels more sturdy and secure, and is super handy as it has a pump function :)

The coverage is medium to full, and can be built up. It sets quite matte and so it may not be a product for people with dry skin - It unfortunately looked too drying on my skin and clung to dry patches - However it would be a great product for someone with combination to oily skin :)

You get a nice sized bottle for the price which is super affordable compared to higher end foundations, so you won't break the bank :)

Overall a lovely product! :D

Great Foundation - Need More Darker Shades

I love this foundation. The formula is amazing for the price and it is a truly matte foundation. It doesn't suck the moisture from my dry skin or move during the day.

I bought the darkest shade, Mahogany. It is a golden foundation and since I bought it in winter it seemed to set the colour in the center of my face really well. I don't usually wear makeup on my periphery so this isn't an issue at all.
When I started to go back to my usual skin tone, I am medium dark, I could tell it was a shade or two too light but still very manageable.
I do wish they would come out with a few darker shades. The formula doesn't react with my sensitive skin and it doesn't need a primer or setting powder to perform.

A definite repurchase for my winter foundations.

One of the best matte foundations

My preferred shade is Golden beige which suits me so well.
I tend to get oily in my T-zone but when I wear this matte foundation I have no problems.
The foundation comes in a practical plastic squeeze tube which is travel friendly and could be one of the reasons for the foundation being affordable.

This has been my go to for every day foundation for almost a year.

It is lightweight and yet full coverage which is amazing. For a drugstore product you get a high end quality.

Great for oily skin

I got this with the Destiny Magazine for R32.95 so I saved quite a bit! This a great foundation for oily skin with great coverage. I could actually feel it mattyifying to my skin. It felt lightweight and not cakey on my face even though I put on full coverage.

I would recommend this to anyone that has oily skin.

Putting it to the test.

For a lady with an extremely oily t-zone I always tend to gravitate towards matte foundations that last all day with little to no touch up needed as I'm quite busy. I've looked around for an affordable drugstore foundation for the longest time and finally came across this baby, after much needed research.

It claims to be a 24-hour high coverage matte foundation and sounded like the perfect products for me.

I was unfortunate because the lady who assisted me at dischem didn't match me correctly because the shade was too dark and what's worse is that it oxidised on my skin.

I eventually managed to find my perfect match and let me just say that I was completely blown away.
You definitely get more for your money. It's an everyday type of foundation that's easy to apply and definitely more suitable for oily skin types (perfect for me lol ).

Im always eager to try new foundations but this one is definitely one I'll repurchase.

Repurchased this baby 3 times already!

This foundation is quite possibly the best foundation L'oreal has ever made, and the best one in its price range on the market.
When I had raging cystic and nodular acne at 19-21, this was the only foundation that would cover everything. And now that my skin is clear, its still my go to everyday foundation. Also, since I have combination skin, some days I'm more dry and some days I'm more oily - so for more dry days I actually just mix a bit of hydrating BB or CC cream with the foundation on the back of my hand. This formula is very matte but amazingly doesn't curdle, and mixes beautifully with BB creams to create a satin finish.

PROS
- Its best for combo to oily skin (if you have combo, make sure you use a primer on your dryer areas)
-Its coverage is 10/10
-Excellent for photography
-Has a good range of shades
-Fantastic packaging for travelling and squeezing out every last drop
-very long-lasting

CONS
- Some shades in the medium/beige range are yellow toned
- Can look patchy if not applied properly
-Dries very quickly, so you have a time limit on blending (TIP: apply and work in the foundation in sections on the face)

Truly Infallible?

This is a very good foundation, considering you have the right skin type and skintone.
I really liked how this foundation felt on my skin - it was lightweight and full coverage. However, I do have 3 cons:
1. The foundation oxidized on my skin. It looked beautiful when just applied, but became slightly orange after about 20 mins.
2. The product didn't hold up when it came to shininess. My T-zone gets quite oily after a few hours and I expected more from the foundation, considering it is 24-h matte. I do set my foundation with a translucent powder so I wasn't very impressed with the oil-control.
3. The shade range runs very pink (more cooler undertones). I couldn't find a shade with enough of a yellow undertone.

I do think that this will work very well for some, just didn't make the cut for me. I do still use it on clients who are of a suitable skin-type/tone.

Worth the hype?

This is one of those product where I can say "youtube made me buy it". I saw so many beauty youtuber's rave about this product, so I just had to see what all the hype was about.

Pro's:
This is really an excellent foundation for the price point. It is full coverage, and after it dries down it feels like you have nothing on your face (which is rare for a full coverage foundation). It has a nice scent, and a wide range of shades.

Con's:
In my opinion, this foundation is not suitable for dry skin at all. I have combination skin, but my under eyes are a bit dry - and after applying this foundation, my skin looked really flaky (note: I did use a beauty oil and primer before application). So if you are a lady, that likes to bake the under eyes, this might not be for you.
Secondly, you have to really be quick with your "routine". Once this foundation dries, its DRY! I could not blend my powder contour or cream concealer unless I applied my makeup quickly.
Lastly, this foundation gave me nasty breakouts!

So basically, it is a good product and I would recommend it for my oily girls, but for me personally it did not work.

L'Oreal Infallible 24H Matte

I purchased this in the shade Golden Beige, which has a yellow undertone, after fantasising about it for weeks because of the amazing effect it had on my skin, after testing it out!
The product offers medium to full coverage, and whilst it feels lightweight on the skin (my face always feels bare if I have to brush my hand against it whilst wearing this), it does look a little cakey if you apply even a little too much. Thankfully, it is quite blendable so a little goes a long way & you don't need that much to cover an area.
It also has great lasting power, leaves my skin matte for hours & does not transfer.
Overall, it's a really decent product & is even ideal for daily use.

L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation Review

As a fan of all of L'Oreal products, I immediately knew this would not disappoint! Not only does it provide a long-lasting coverage, but it also gives a smooth matte finish which eliminates the shiny caked-up look which I utterly loathe.

Even though there isn't a large variety of shades to choose from, the foundation blends really well so you won't have a problem finding one to suit your skin tone. As for skin textures, I would not recommend you apply onto a dry skin, so make sure to moisturize well and use a little bit of primer too.

What I liked most about this product is how easily it can be applied and the lightweight texture that stays that way all day. It's the perfect for a studio-finish look under a harsh lighting and for everyday usage.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quality foundation at a reasonably affordable price.

L'Oreal Infallible

Finding the perfect foundation for my skin tone can be a challenge sometime, and I love the L'Oreal Infallible 24 HR Matte foundation.

I tried the Cappuccino and at first I thought it might be too light for my skin and that maybe I should try the Mahogany but that looked even darker - so i opted for the Cappuccino and boy was it amazing. It is a nifty little number: a non-cakey, long-lasting, matte-but-not-flat foundation that looks incredible on my skin.

I was excited to use it on my night out with my friends that I forgot to remove m makeup when I got home and I woke up with everything in tact. It is absolutely amazing and worth the try.

Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation

It was really hard for me to make the switch from MAC studio fix, to this, but I'm glad I have! This is a dupe of the studio fix liquid, with a matte finish! Perfect for normal to oily/combination skin types. I'm obsessed with this foundation and def won't be turning back. It's a full coverage and long lasting matte finish, can be set with powder - but really no need too. This is the only drug store foundation with yellow undertones and doesn't have a nasty smell to it. This foundation is buildable and extremely light weight! It covers my pigmentation and I love how this doesn't move after wearing it for a long period. For such a high standard foundation, it's fairly priced at R180 at dischem stores, prices may differ if brought from a different retailer. Everyone with oily skin NEEDS this foundation!

So happy with this!

I've been hearing rave reviews on this foundation from all over the blogging world - it's been cited as a dupe for Estee Lauder Double Wear, which is my holy grail foundation, but at a fraction of the cost.

I often hear that products like this will be just as good as the more expensive ones, and i'm always let down, so when I heard that every single person who had tested it out had liked it, I was pretty excited to receive one from Beauty Bulletin to review. The shade 22 'Radiant Beige' is spot on for my skin colour and is almost identical to my Double Wear, which I wear in the shade 'Sand'.

The formula is creamy and light, but it gives really great full coverage with a matte finish. I barely needed to use ANY concealer!

What I was most excited about was the 24h claim. Granted, I won't spend 24 hours with makeup on in one solid stretch of time, but I like longwear formulas, as I dislike touching up. I tried this with a number of different primers and setting powders and it really does hold up like my Double Wear, if not better! I didn't even need to blot with my blotting papers on the day I used Maybelline Babyskin and a Revlon powder with it!

My biggest test was yesterday - I applied it in the morning at around 6:45, with NO primer and NO concealer and NO setting powder. My thought was, RIGHT, let's see how this baby REALLY works out.

I only got home at 7:30 in the evening, so that was on for longer than 12 hours. I didn't need to touch up at all! My blusher had faded slightly during the day on top of the makeup, but even though my skin was a bit shiny by this time, I hadn't needed to touch up the makeup or even apply any concealer the entire day! The mirrors at my hair salon are rather unforgiving, and I always hate going there at the end of the day and seeing how my makeup has suffered - not the case this time! My hair dresser even asked what foundation I was using as my skin looked so good.

This is now a staple in my collection, and I'll repurchase until the end of time!

Loreal Infallible 24h matte foundation

I took the plunge and bought this on saturday, R189 at clicks and when looking at the small tube it sort of seems like its expensive and i had to think twice about buying it. I can say i am very well impressed with it, it is very matte and you can build the cover to perfection but at the same time it looks so smooth and natural. The one thing about it tho is it is a bit drying on my skin, when i first put it on in the morning it makes my face feel dry and tight (kinda like the feeling of the LA girl matte glosses) but then i find that if i apply a bit more moisturser before applying it then its fine and also about an hour or two into my day when my skin would normally start getting shiny and oily then it kinda balances it out so it works out perfectly!! and lasts all day. i can see this is gonna become a big hit. For people with dry skin tho , i dont think this is gonna work.

L'Oréal infallible 24h-matte

This is an excellent "drugstore" foundation. Coverage is exceptional, it is ultra long-lasting and I like that the packaging is a tube. I would say that this might be too drying for drier skins, but an excellent affordable choice for oilier skins.

Love

I honestly love this product! It is inexpensive, it has great coverage, and it last all day. I love this foundation but a quick tip for different skin types. For those that have dry skin and want to wear this foundation, use a illuminating primer and some moisturizer so it doesn't look so cakey. For those with oily skin this is the perfect foundation because it is very matte. You do need to work with it pretty fast because it does dry out pretty fast but honestly it is an awesome product.

L'Oréal Infallible 24H-Matte

I love matte make up and when I was given the opportunity to review a matte foundation and not just any brand but L'Oréal I was beyond excited.

Firstly the price is way affordable compared to the quality you will be getting.The reason I say this is because it was made by L'Oréal=quality and you don't have to use any powder because really THERE IS NO NEED it's a matte foundations!!!.
Secondly it is light as air.You won't even feel that you are wearing makeup.
Thirdly this foundation is not cakey at all.Your face is left feeling smooth...like a baby's skin.
Fourth full coverage.All your imperfections are covered(excuse the pun).
Last but definitely not least your makeup is ON POINT and your confidence is boosted.

Psst don't forget to have a look at my pictures to see the before and after transformation.
