L'Oreal Infallible Foundation Review

The L'Oreal Infallible Foundation has become a well raved about foundation. Last year when the UK released the L'Oreal Infallible foundation I jumped at the chance to try it but I was very disappointed. I have really oily skin so I thought it would work for me. I also tried the US version which you can get from Ebay or Amazon, it does cost a few pounds more than the UK one. I thought I would compare the two as I can tell a huge difference and I have spoken to some other bloggers who agree there is a difference. 



UK
This foundation was released in the UK last year and everyone went mad for it. The first time I tried it I hated it. I found it didn't look flawless on my skin and it didn't stop me getting oily at all. I found after a few hours I was oily and the foundation had started to seperate. 

US
I ordered this online after seeing other bloggers recommend this one more than the UK one. As soon as I tried it I fell in love. I found it applied effortlessly and took less blending than the UK version, once blended it looked flawless. I used this with the same primer and powder as I did with the UK one and found this one lasted upto 8 hours with no shine!

I have looked online and checked the ingridients and found they are both the same which is very weird. Im not sure how they can be so different but trust me they are. The US version doesn't feel as heavy and feels a little runnier when applying. One of the main things I love more about the US one is the colour range, I can find my exact shade match in the US one whereas the UK range doesn't have as many shades and I can't find one to match my pink toned pale skin.

As you can see above the US shade I use is Shell which is the perfect match! It is a very pale pink tone, if you have neutral skin this will work for you too. The UK Rose Beige is just too dark a pink, it kind of looks dull when you apply it whereas the US one even though it is slightly matte it doesn't make me look dull.

If you tried and didn't like the UK on definitely try out the US version as it is now one of my holy grail foundations. I will be stocking up when I go to NY in November. I am so happy I finally found a foundation that matches my skin and also works well at keeping my oil at bay!
