Last year when the Loreal Infallible Mattifying Primer & 24Hour Matte foundation came out , I was running to the closest Deschem to get it to try it out. In December Loreal send me a few more shades, and I decided why not share my thoughts on these two products. For the record - The shade I use daily (11 Vanilla I bought myself as well as the mattifying primer ) My shade I started using after December (when I was tanned for once - Radiant Beige - I did receive as a PR sample )
As you guys know, I love primers. My HUGE collection of primers in my bathroom can definitely confirm that it's one of my most used products daily. If I apply make-up the day for work, I would like it to stay on my face and not slide off. Usually I apply my make-up around 05h30 in the mornings, and usually only take it off once Alex is in bed and fast asleep around 20h00 . And I want to still look as good at night as I did when I applied it that morning. This primer definitely helps me in that department. This foundation is a silicone formula and as you can see quite thick but once you rub it in between your fingers and applied to your face it provides a velvety smooth finish that helps to keep you matte.
Usually I need to powder around midday - but using the combo of the primer and foundation - I don't feel the need until around 18h00 .
Word of warning though - if you don't have oily skin or combination skin - stay away from this primer. Some days when my water intake isn't too great , I do notice the foundation and primer sucks into my skin and makes it look dry - so on those days I skip the primer and use something else like Benefits or Maybelline Baby Skin.
