L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Powder Foundation “225 Beige” Review and Swatches
Helloo my ETM-ites!
As I mentioned in my last review, I had picked up a couple of things from the new L’Oreal Cannes Collection launches. 🙂 I have already reviewed the super gorgeous gel liner Intenza “Royal Blue” while today, it’s the turn of the revamped Infallible range compact- the Infallible 24hr powder foundation in 225 beige. 🙂
What L’Oreal says:
NEW INFALLIBLE Powder Foundation provides ultimate hold with a non-drying texture for the most flawless skin finish. Pushing the boundaries of long-wear, infallible powder stays put with no fading or transfer for an all day perfect complexion.
Price: 1250/- INR for 9 gm product.
My Take on L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Powder Foundation:
The round infallible compact has given way to a red and black square compact with two separate compartments– one for the powder and the other one for housing the snow-white soft sponge *a nice soft one* and a big mirror: 🙂 much to my dismay though, the compact lid was quite flimsy and I almost broke it the first day :-/ 1250 bucks for this packaging? Really?
The texture of the Infallible powder is absolutely light and creamy– not at all flaky/powdery and feels amazing while patting it on skin with the sponge or just dusting it on with a powder brush. 🙂 It does instantly get rid of the oily facial zones but renders it perfect like real skin- no matte look at all. Also, it does not make my drier facial parts look wrinkly or dry. 🙂 it has a soft skin finish. <3
The shade 225 beige looks lighter than my complexion, but it blends really well and does not oxidize either. 🙂 You can’t even tell am wearing powder after I dust my face with this! It sets my concealer and foundation really well too and when I feel lazy, I wet the sponge slightly and pat it on my face and voila! A higher coverage with a lovely smooth finish. 🙂

L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Powder Foundation “225 Beige” Blended on skin
It stays on my skin for the entire day requiring a single touch-up only on the days I sweat too much, otherwise its fine! It does not control oil true, but it balances my face in a very realistic and fresh manner! It does not streak or melt. 🙂
It lacks SPF which is my main gripe. :-/ I do wish it came with a mandatory spf 15 at least!
Pros of L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Powder Foundation:
- The compact comes with a lovely soft sponge and a big mirror 🙂
- The texture of the powder is so lovely and soft- almost creamy and applies beautifully without looking dry or flaky <3
- Balances the oily and dry parts of the face and gives a flawless finish 😀
- It acts as a foundation with a good coverage when applied damp and otherwise works great as a setting powder!
- Stays on skin the whole day and does not budge, streak or melt 🙂
Cons of L’Oreal Infallible 24Hr Powder Foundation:
- Flimsy compact 😡
- No SPF
My Rating: 3.7/5!
Do I recommend?
The revamped L’Oreal Infallible compact is a delightfully smooth and creamy powder which is definitely multi purpose! Its great for balancing out skin in a flawless way, as a seting powder and even as a foundation when applied damp. 🙂 This Infallible Powerder Foundation will be especially great for normal-dry skinned ladies who shrink away from any form of compact. 🙂 I just wish it had better packaging :-/

[alert-note]Sounds exactly how I like my compacts. Not a fan of the drying matte powder compacts ever since I left Mumbai. This one, I just received yesterday. And the shin the same exact shade. can you believe it worked for my skin tone as well. :O I am just waiting to try it in broad day light to see if it really looks that nice as it seems in evening light. Lovely review Agni. 🙂 [/alert-note]
