L'Oreal Paris Infallible Mattifying Base Review


When it comes to everyday make-up I tend to prefer using as little product as possible. Part of that decision is because I'm lazy and would easily prefer an extra 10 minutes in bed (who wouldn't?!) but mainly because I suffer with oily skin and will always try and avoid applying too much to my face for long periods of time. Half of it slides off my face and the other half gets clogged in my pores. Gross!

For the past couple of months I've been on a mission to find "the perfect everyday make-up bag" which is basically a foundation that stays on all day without making my skin feel heavy. After a lot of researching on other blogs and re-reading a few of my own reviews, I thought I would try focusing on more "pre-makeup" and buy myself a proper primer!

After reading more reviews, I decided on the L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Base because of it's light but powerful staying power. Another reason was because Superdrug had a 3 for 2 on all L'Oreal products and I was desperate to pick up another tube of their Paradise mascara!

Ignore the "act natural" pose.

As I said above, I suffer with oily skin and I tend to keep my product usage quite low as most either make my skin look even shinier than it already is or it slides off before even mid-day. I’ve tried other moisturisers and bases before and although I’ve initially loved them, their novelty wears off and I end up never using them again.
That was before I tried this mattifying primer though!
My skin actually looks good ALLL day when I put this on. There was no shiny T-zone or that horrible heavy feeling like you’re wearing 100 layers of foundation. The formula is super light and glides on easily onto your skin. It added no extra time onto my morning routine but it made such a difference! I don’t leave the house without using this badboy now.
If you’re in the market for a new primer or just want to give something new ago, then I’d definitely recommend checking out this primer!
