Review: L’OREAL Pro-Matte Foundation

Must-havesfor your bag.png

Are you looking for a new foundation? Don’t want to buy a high end foundation? The new, L’oreal INFALLIBLE Pro-Matte Foundation is what you need. It is NOT only for oily skin!

The Foundation:
This new foundation promises a 24 hour wear with a demi-matte finish, and you get just that. This foundation is lightweight, creamy and definitely lasts 12+ hours. Wearing foundation for 24 hours is not great for your skin and I wouldn’t personally recommend it, but if you are up for the challenge, try it!

The Pro-Matte Foundation is a medium coverage and definitely build-able, hiding imperfections for a clear natural complexion.  There are 12 shades – just as the Pro-Glow and it is available online and in retail stores. It has a retail price of $12.99 on the L’oreal Website; a bit on the higher end for a drugstore foundation but still affordable.

Holding up on oily combination skin:
My skin is oily combination  (I do have dry spots) and I’ve noticed that this foundation looks natural. I don’t get oily at the end of the day with this foundation and don’t need to set my foundation with a powder.

Overall:
I think this foundation would work ok with dry, dry/combo skin. It might dry you out a little bit so don’t set it with a powder. On the other hand, if you have oily, oily/combo, skin, you should definitely try this foundation. Experimenting with setting sprays and primers always helps with oily skin too.

I love the Pro-Matte foundation and  find it very comparable to the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place. If you want a review of the Double Wear foundation let me know!
