I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. At first, I bought it because I’ve heard so many praises about it, and I was running out of foundation and needed one for my trip to Athens. Its price is a little above 10euros, so this fact also contributed in my choice to buy it to give it a try.
I bought the 11 Vanilla-shade, which is really close to my skin tone, something that made me excited because I very rarely find products so close to my skin tone. I know that the Infallible matte foundation is mainly targeted to women with oily skin, but since it was still autumn when I bought it and my skin was normal with an oily T-Zone at the time, I didn’t hesitate buying it. And at first, I loved it. But use after use I started loathing it.
First thing I noticed is that the foundation turns into powder in a very short time, and you really have to apply the product relatively fast in order for it to look smooth and nice on your skin. I also noticed that my foundation brush quickly turned into a sticky mess, and after a couple of uses it felt like it was petrified. The product was really difficult to take off the brush, when cleaning it, and I had to do it many time for it to feel clean again. That’s one of the worst downsides to me. In addition to these, as we went into winter, and my skin started feeling drier & dehydrated again, the foundation started looking too cakey on me. And now that the weather is getting warmer, I’m starting to like it again.
So my conclusion is that if you have dry skin, you have to stay away from this product. Better use another foundation and a setting powder instead of this one. But if your skin is normal to oily, it will probably work for you. Skin type apart, for me, even though it says it has high coverage; I found that its coverage is medium at best. As for its lasting power, it will be kept matte for a few hours, but definitely not for the whole day, so keep your powder with you if you’re planning to spend the whole day out of the house. Also, be very careful NOT to drop any on your clothes, because you’ll have to do your laundry to take it off.
