L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Powder Foundation
Today I’ll be reviewing L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Powder Foundation. L’Oreal Paris is one of my favourite brands that has never disappointed me with its products. Without giving any second thoughts I purchased this product soon after its launch. Let’s dive into the details of this product without wasting any further time.

Packaging of L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Powder Foundation
About the packaging,this foundation cum compact powder comes in a sturdy red and the black coloured square plastic casing with two compartments. The first compartment is transparent which contains the pressed powder while the second compartment beneath it comes with a small mirror and a sponge applicator.
This pressed powder has a velvety smooth texture which is finely milled making it super blendable. Though it appears very thick initially you might think it might not blend easily but that is completely wrong. You have time to work this stuff off.
Review of L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Powder Foundation
So I’ll be reviewing this powder which is in the shade 225 beige. I think this compact powder is suitable for all skin types because I have sensitive skin and it didn’t cause any breakouts. I’ve been using it as a compact more often than as a foundation but will tell you my experience with both of them.
What I liked about this pressed powder is that it comes in a double casing which avoids the sponge applicator to constantly come in contact with the powder and also a small mirror making it travel-friendly. So a big plus point for the packaging.
When used as Compact Powder
So, first, let me tell you what I feel about this product when used it as compact powder.
I have an oily T zone and during summers my makeup tends to melt and starts looking very oily and shiny like a disco ball so I have to ensure that I apply a compact to soak away all the oiliness.
After applying my foundation I dust this compact powder with my powder brush. It gives a very healthy matte finish to my makeup and does not look cakey neither does it tend to dry out my skin or make my laugh lines more prominent. This compact helps in reducing the appearance of my pores. It gives a velvety smooth finish without making your face look very dry. I didn’t need to reapply this compact or use a blotting paper for up to 7 hrs but after that, I had to reapply this compact powder. It increases the wear time of my foundation and neither does it oxidise.
When used as a foundation
Now coming to using it as a foundation
I had used a damp sponge applicator(present inside the compact) so that it glides well. It does a pretty good job as a powder foundation but as I have dark acne scars it didn’t cover them completely. It gives a very smooth, velvety and natural finish and doesn’t look as if you’ve applied anything on your face but it starts to wear off quickly. People who have clear skin can use it as a foundation but I would rather prefer using it over a foundation as a compact to give full coverage and matte finish to my face.
