L'oreal Paris Infallible 24H-Matte in 20 Sand Review



L'oreal is winning in the foundation field at the moment. I have three different foundations i'm alternating between, all from L'oreal, all very different.

This particular one has phenomenal staying power, as suggested by the name. I wore this for twenty hours straight and it did not budge, not one bit. It looked fresh as a daisy for TWENTY hours. More often than not I get home, look in the mirror and think "why did nobody tell me I looked like this?!" but  with this I got home and let out a little gasp.

The product is very thick with high coverage, which I don't need but it's just so good. There's no dodgy smell and the dispenser has a little tube at one end so you can moderate how much comes out, and it's really sanitary. I tend to steer away from things I have to dip my fingers into- all that bacteria. *shudders*

I have very dry skin so was scared, as this has a matte finish, it would dry out my skin more and cling to the dry patches but it did neither so I was pleasantly surprised.

I opted for a darker shade than my usual skintone to cancel out some bruising I had on my face, but this will definitely be my summer foundation as it will keep the oils at bay, whilst staying flawless for hours.

It's available for £6.99 which is an absolute bargain as high end brands would charge £40+ for something of the same standard.

What's your must have foundation?

  1. Wow, that's some seriously impressive staying power! I usually use Revlon Colorstay but even that doesn't compare in longevity.

  2. Everyone keeps raving about this foundation! I really can't wait to try it out. I made a deal with myself that I wouldn't purchase any more makeup until I finish up another product I already own. It's been a struggle, haha. I wonder why the packaging of this same foundation is different in the US? Hmm.

    1. I always find it weird when brands do that! Like how it's TK Maxx in the uk and TJ Maxx in the us... WHY?!

  7. Fab review, I'd love to give this a go! I have oily/combo skin so the matte style sounds perfect. I've never tried foundations with high coverage but I'm super tempted to try this one out! :)

  8. I am loving this foundation so so so much! I'll have to pick it up in a slightly darker colour for the summer, but I own the perfect shade at the moment, which is 11 vanilla. It matches my actual skin perfectly! x

  10. Twenty hours straight? That is impressive.
    Question is: What on earth have you been doing so long that required makeup?

    1. Hahaha, good question! I was at an audition at 6AM then being a MUA until 12pm and didn't remove my make-up until after I had my dinner, tough life!

  12. This looks great, good work L'Oreal! I have dry skin too, and I find it so hard to find a foundation that doesn't cling to my dry patches. Looks like I may have to investigate this one! And what a bargain, too.

    1. I was so surprised at the price too! I think it may be an offer though.

  13. Most people rave about this, but I've definitely seen some people who just don't understand the hype and hate it, I think I'll just have to bite the bullet and try it!

    Love your blog, just followed!

    1. That's similar to most things IMO, like, I love "They're real" but others just don't- I guess it just depends if you can work with it! But for £6.49 I think you should bite the bullet!

  18. I've heard really good things about this and it's really affordable. I was worried because I get dry skin too, but it looks like that isn't an issue with this.
