Is there anything as alluring as an elusive makeup product? I don’t think so, because just knowing I can’t get my hands on something makes me want it approximately 1000 times more. One such product is the L’oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation. It taunted us from across the ocean, with its claims to make skin look amazing, add glow and last all day. Well, now it’s available in the UK and I finally finally got my hands on it…
‘With medium coverage, it’s long wear formula lasts up to 24 hours and hides imperfections for a smooth, clear complexion. The foundation, available in 12 shades, is perfect for normal to dry skin in need of hydration.’
This foundation has piqued my interest for so long because it promised to be both long-lasting and glowy. A magical combination that always seems to elude me. It’s all pretty much a bargain, with it sounding like it can rival a lot of foundations costing four times the price.
The texture on this is light and really blendable; it’s very smooth and instantly makes skin look more radiant.
I have to say, this foundation has blown me away. It is really good. The coverage is medium, but buildable and the formula is just pretty perfect. I wore two light layers in the below photo, to give me the sort of coverage I like. Blended in with a damp beauty blender (obviously), it’s a dream. It did last ten hours on me without looking patchy/oily/messy at all. I can guarantee that I pretty much never wear makeup for 24 hours, because washing my face at night is life. I am, however, a serial face toucher… I rest my chin in my hands when I’m working without even noticing and frequently end up with a red chin. Such a good look. With this one though, it looks the same when I take it off as when I put it on. Makeup sorcery!
You can grab your own bottle exclusively from Amazon here in the UK – it’s £11.99, and looks to be here for the long-haul so no need to bulk buy 50 bottles. There are 12 shades available, mostly sticking in the mid-tone range. I’m 201 classic ivory (the palest shade on sale) and it seems a decent match, if a little pink.
