L'Oreal Infallible Foundation Stick | Review

I have always been a fan of L'Oreal and their foundations, so I was very excited to try out this new stick foundation. I made sure I did research before actually purchasing it, by watching multiple youtube videos where I could see them actually using the product as well as obviously reading the comments on the Superdrug website and the overall review in stars - 4/5 Stars.


The reviews were all great, it came so highly recommended so I finally caved and ordered it online alongside 2 lipsticks one for me and one for my mum, and a new concealer. It took about a week to arrive but I wasn't fussed because it was free delivery and it actually came on my birthday so I got to wear it out for my birthday meal. 

I was first worried about the application of the product because, well as I said before I had never used one before, but it was really easy. I applied it randomly all over my face to make sure I would get an even coverage and it blended lovely with my beauty blender however when I tried to add more it didn't seem to make a difference to the coverage on my face. When I used it again I tried to apply more to my face in the first place and that worked better, but still not full coverage - I would say it was more of a medium coverage foundation. 

I continued to use it for several weeks but this past week it started to go patchy when I was applying it, areas of my face would still be red and almost have no foundation on. I tried to add more and it didn't seem to make any difference, the foundation was almost rubbing itself off my face, which was extremely irritating. It started to rub off my face a lot quickly throughout the day, even after I had applied my setting spray. I started to question whether there was something wrong with my skin, like was it too dry or was it too oily? My skin was not dry and my skin gets oily throughout the day but that didn't affect the foundation. But I do think skin type does affect the application of foundation, and possibly my oily skin affected it somehow but I'm not sure how. 

Overall the product was great to start off with, it blended really easily and didn't dry on my face too quickly so I was able to easily apply all my foundation at any pace. However, after 2/3 weeks of using it most days, it did go patchy and almost stop working as a foundation. I do not regret buying this product mainly because I have always wanted to try a stick foundation and think I may try one of the makeup revolution ones that everyone was hyping about at the same time!

I hope this review was helpful, I quite enjoyed doing this sort of post and I think I may start doing some more of these when I get new products and maybe not just makeup ones. Thank you for reading, it means a lot! I have missed blogging as I had to take a step back for a little bit because my school work took over but I starting to find a balance which is brilliant!
