L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation

As you may know already, L'Oréal Paris has launched a new long-lasting foundation recently! Available in 30 shades, the Infallible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation provides medium-to-full coverage and has a natural finish. The formula is supposed to be lightweight, waterproof and transfer-resistant.

The Fresh Wear foundation has a very thin consistency. It doesn't feel oily, sticky or heavy on the skin, and the self-setting formula is easy to work with ; it doesn't dry as fast as other self-setting foundations!

I can apply it with my hands too and it doesn't accentuate dry patches too much, but it looks even better if I apply it with a Beautyblender.

I would say that the coverage is medium to full, but buildable to full if desired. It can be sheered down as well! When I want sheer to medium coverage, I use a damp Beautyblender and swipe the sponge across my skin instead of bouncing it onto my skin (and use less product)!

This foundation dries down to a natural satin finish, it almost has a lit-from-within glow to it! The Fresh Wear foundation is less luminous than the Pro-Glow foundation, but definitely not matte like the Pro-Matte foundation. It's like a cross between both formulas!

By the way, this product is fragranced and may not be suitable for sensitive skin. My skin has been quite sensitive lately, but I don't have problems with fragrance in my makeup.

The staying power is pretty good, it lasts all day on me! But to be honest I expected it to last longer since it claims to last 24 hours. I can wear this foundation for about 10 hours, after that period of time it begins to separate around my mouth.

My skin is very oily though, so it may last much longer on normal or dry skin types! Speaking of oily skin, my skin is a bit shiny by the 2 hours mark, but I only really need to use a blotting sheet after 3½ hours.

This is an incredible foundation!

I've tried many drugstore foundations in the past few years and it's now in my top 5. It comes in 30 shades, has a beautiful satin finish, and I love how it looks on my skin!

    1. Hmm it looks like there isn't a shade similar to NW25. :(
      Your best match would be 430 or 435 but they will probably be too dark (they are similar to NW30). I don't have the shade 415 though, so I'm not sure if this one would be a good match.

  7. Thank you Kristelle! I have been looking to switch my foundation as I have very dry skin. This is very helpful, just wondering what you would think will match Mac's NC40 shade? Thanks!
