Makeup on a Budget Series: L’Oréal Paris

Hello all,

I know it has been a while since I had last done my Makeup on a Budget A Budget Series. So this week I will be featuring L’Oréal Paris. In business since 1909, L’Oréal Paris has been a budget-friendly drug store staple.  One product that I would love to feature from L’Oréal Paris is the new Infallible Fresh Wear 24 HR Foundation. This foundation was released about a month ago and what had me intrigued about this foundation is that I was seeing a lot of reviews from a few of the beauty influencers that I follow and they absolutely love this foundation.  I was looking for a drug store budget-friendly option foundation that I could use for daily wear that did have an overly matte formulation.  During the winter time as you all know, my skin is so dry and my favorite foundation which is the Maybelline Superstay foundation works extremely well for me during the Summer months but during the winter, not so much.  So when L’Oréal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation was release I really wanted to try this out.

I went to my local Walgreens and sure enough, they had the foundation in stock.  I went with shade 510 – Hazelnut.  When I got home to test it out I was amazed by the coverage and the breathable feel of the foundation.  My skin looked flawless and even with the slight perfume scent, which didn’t bother me too much, I was actually pretty satisfied with the application and the finish. I also loved that this foundation came with a pump as well. When foundations come with a pump it just cuts down on the messiness.

**Just a declaimer if you have really sensitive skin you may not be able to use this foundation because of the perfume scent or I would advise you to a skin test before purchasing.**

Here are the details of this foundation below.

  1. I loved it! I am new to the purchasing make up game… I usually buy it from make-up stores, but I think I’ll try to purchase it from grocery stores as well!!
