The Infallible® 24-Hour Fresh Wear Foundation by L’Oréal Paris is one of those products that immediately get a shoutout when someone asks about the best foundations from the drugstore. It’s a reputation cultivated by years of building a loyal fanbase, as well as making little tweaks and improvements to the product’s formula that, in the process, continually improve the product. And we’ve got to say: Overall, we were very impressed by how well this product worked.
First of all, the shade range of the product definitely doesn’t joke around. The product is available in a whopping 30 shades to ensure that you get the best, most accurate color match as possible. In terms of formula, it’s a very good thing that the product doesn’t set on the skin too quickly. This allows one to pace themselves when blending out the product for even coverage, and just not rush too much while working on their mug. Coverage-wise, the foundation gives buildable medium coverage that’s enough to smooth out the skin, and create the perfect base for the rest of your makeup to go onto. As the name implies, the product also puts focus on wear time, and delivers in spades there as well.
In terms of weaknesses, there are a few significant ones that are present (and noteworthy) in this product. First, it does tend to oxidize a fair amount when used, so if you’re buying the product for the first time, make sure to do a quick wear test, just to make sure you’re still getting the correct shade even after the product oxidizes. Also important to note is that after a long time of wear, the product isn’t able to suppress oiliness as well anymore, so definitely have powder handy.
Testing this product, it’s easy for us to see now why this foundation is beloved among beauty enthusiasts, even if it is just a drugstore product. This foundation is able to offer a lot that not even some luxury foundations can, and when this product gets is right, it gets it very right.
SUITABLE FOR: All skin types, but might be better on normal to dry skin.
