Reader Annika Tests out L’Oreal’s Infallible Foundation

I personally have not tried this foundation, but the before and after pics are amazing! If you have any questions for Annika, leave them in the comments section!

Its got a nice fragrence to it
It blends into the skin well (well i have had some problems but see cons for that)
it apprently last a long time aswell, the bottle looks quite small but i am assured that it lasts a while)
its medium priced at £10.99 (in usa its around $10-13 dollars from the local drugstore e.g. CVs ect)


After the shop assistant put on the foundation it looked amazing (she used a more expensive powder brush from GOSH, she didnt realize it was a powder brush but it worked better then their auctual foundation brush lol…well anyway )
I put on foundation next day using a cheaper version of the GOSH brush (ordered the gosh powder brush as it was out of stock :( ) it went on really bad and did not go on evenly i had to remove it 2times for it to do it so it diffinantly needs a profesional brush to apply it with.

It rubs off very easy too which is odd really and kinda anoying so it needs alittle time to dry propperly i would say

If you are one of these people that shines when your warm it does do that too and it seems to like be melting ur face but dont be put off by this as if you apply alittle powder/bronzer it’ll help calm it down and absorbe alittle better.

basically its a good foundation, good coverage good price and lasts awhile but may need a few practices to make it look right…


Superdrug vitamin E Moisture Lotion
Mayberlline Infallible 16hrs in porcelain
Gosh Bronzing Pearls in a light brown


L’oreal Star Secrets Penélope Cruz
Rimmel Kohl black pencil eye liner


L’oreal 6hr Glam shine in Mauve

Brushes used

Mac 224SE Blending brush
Cheap foundation brush from Superdrug
Cheap Bronzer/blusher brush from Superdrug
cheap e/s brush from Ulta xmas collection.

This is the before look.. with blotchy kinda reddy skin….


Reader Looks- Sheila shows us the real way to use MAC Pharoah Paint Pot!

My good friend Sheila from high school is such a doll and is a queen at applying makeup, here is her FOTD!

War Paint:

Smashbox Primer,
Maybelline Mineral Loose Powder in Light 4
Benefit Boing Concealer in 2 Med

Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow
Pencil (the best!) It has won an award by Allure.

BROW BONE- Rubenesque paint pot
Nylon eyeshadow
LID- Pharaoh paint pot and Reflects
Transparent Teal glitter (use on eye area
at your own risk, the paint pot keeps
mine in place)
CREASE: MAC: Rule e/s
EYELINER: Almay black liquid liner
WATERLINE: MAC Technakohl liner in
LASH LINE: MAC Shadestick in Penny
MASCARA: Voluminous, black


I used Rubenesque
paint pot as a base for the top of my cheeks
for the first time. I loved it,
because it kept “Dancing Light”
beauty powder in place for my
highlight. On the apples of my
cheeks I used MAC blush in Style. Gotta
love that coral shimmer!

Lips: Salmon lipstick by Bobbi Brown
