A few weeks ago, I already reviewed the L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh foundation. While that looked like a promising foundation, it didn’t do the trick for me and since I like the Nude Magique Cushion foundation so much I wasn’t about to give up on L’Oreal’s foundations just yet. I purchased this L’Oreal Infallible Matte foundation in a deal hoping to try my hand at a fuller coverage foundation. Here’s how I fared.
This past year, testing out new foundations have been my thing. I was never much of a foundation girl. My skin was fussy and most of the time didn’t like it. It cause itching and breakouts most of the time, but as my skincare routine improved, I found I could wear more and more different foundations. So that prompted me to find a great foundation and as you do, I started off trying some drugstore foundations. One such foundation I tried out is the L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh foundation.

Bourjois has reformulated their Healthy Mix foundation and I was curious to try it. The old version is one of my favorite drugstore foundations, but it is a bit too dark and yellow for me on most days. This is why I don’t reach for it all that often. The newer formula promises to be even more beneficial to your skin and it also comes in a very light shade: 51 Light Vanilla. Here’s how the old Healthy Mix formula compares to the new one.
If you’ve been following my blog this past week, then you may have expected a review like this. Catrice has launched their Spring/ Summer 2017 line and I got my hands on quite a few goodies. I decided to first start trying out the foundation as that was the product that intrigued me most. I wore it all week last week and really put this stuff to the test. I even wore it to dance class and the gym just to see how this would hold up. Because when a foundation claims to be ‘Made to Stay’ then that is a feature that of course needs to be tested!

Lately I have found myself on a major foundation kick. I’ve been trying new releases left and right. Moreover, where I normally opt for a light coverage foundation, I have also been dabbling with full coverage ones. Another type of foundation I’ve been trying out is the matte foundation. So many people swear by those and I just wanted to see what the fuss was all about. When I saw that Maybelline finally launched their Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation in The Netherlands, I decided to try it and see what I think.

Two years ago I reviewed the L’Oreal True Match foundation. I really liked it at the time. I also knew however that in the US, this product looks differently and is available in many more shades. In the past two years I stopped being super duper pale for most of the year and so the shade I own in the European version of this product is a tad light. Since I did really like this foundation I decided to try this in the US version in a slightly darker shade.

Foundation was the last make up product that I added to my routine. I don’t have the world’s most terrible skin and that’s why I was always quite skeptical towards wearing foundation. Trying foundation is therefore something I do like to do, but which I don’t get round to very often. Usually when I have a foundation I like, I simply keep using it until I grow tired of it, or if it no longer matches my skin tone. The latter was the case just recently and so I had to switch foundations. I bought a Maybelline Dream Satin foundation on sale last year and thought I’d give it a try. And let me tell you: I absolutely love it.
