For a while now I have been searching for a new foundation, I have been trying out the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation for around three months, I kept using it for a while then stopping and using something else but I always ended up reverting back to this one.

Firstly this is a full coverage foundation, it's quite thick but I don't put this on par with Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, cause that stuff is thick! After a while that started to go patchy on me, this foundation doesn't do that. My shade is 11 Vanilla which is a perfect match with my skin tone, if you are a fair skinned person who doesn't get a lot of sunlight like me then this shade would probably suit you quite nicely, it doesn't look orange on the skin either.

As I am oily the bold claim of a 24-hour matte foundation is unfortunately not the case, however I didn't expect it to be. I have never worn this foundation for a full 24 hours firstly, 10 hours has been my maximum. I can honestly say as time goes on this foundation doesn't break up or go patchy, with most other foundations after about 8 hours my t-zone is looking like a greasy mess but 10 hours later and the L'Oreal Infallible Matte just looks 'dewy'. I definitely think there is a difference between your skin looking moderately hydrated with a slight shine to looking straight up oily.
I allowed myself three months to try this foundation so my skin could really get used to it and this product lets the least amount of oil come to the surface of my skin and for that reason I already know I will repurchase.

My one niggle, I have to clean my foundation brush at least every three days because I get all this build up of dried up product in my brush that falls out when I use it and if it gets on your white jeans when your getting ready, your knackered, take it from me. I know you should clean your brushes regularly to prevent bacteria from giving you break outs and all that stuff but I am lazy, I don't find brush cleaning enjoyable as I am sure most people. Every three days! This is far too much effort and that is the only thing that lets this foundation down. I have never had a foundation do this before so I find it rather strange but I will persevere as the positives outweigh the negatives.
