1. L’oreal Infallible 24hr Foundation 30ml, £9.99
This is my absolute go to foundation when I’m on a tight budget, I’ve been a fan of this since it’s original release around four years ago (I’m totally guessing here) and since then it’s had a bit of a nip and tuck and it’s previous curvy formation which I believe their new(er) foundation the ‘true match’ line is currently bottled in, I’m not complaining I do like the sleeker bottle as it takes up less space in my bag and lets face it there’s some prime real estate in there, every cm squared is precious.
It’s also one I have picked up a few times as I’ve stupidly forgotten to pack foundation, but no worries it’s under a tenner! (which I swear is a new lower price than previous, again not complaining.) So onto the important deets, it’s a full coverage liquid foundation which is something I personally always look for, I have some pretty dark acne scars and patchy pigmentation which need covering and smoothing over ASAP and this does the job pretty damn well for ten squids. The formula is quite creamy for a liquid foundation and it’s unfortch one of the foundations that make you feel like you’re wearing foundation, it’s quite thick and feels slightly heavy on the face. This is as far from a BB cream/tinted moisturiser experience as possible but that is no biggie.
As for the 24hr staying power claim which I think is frankly over zealous cos who needs their foundation fixed to their face for that long? Nobody, that’s who. I haven’t specifically timed it’s staying power but I would say it probably looks good for the first 4/5 hours after application before fading away revealing my true skin (crying).
