L'OREAL INFALLIBLE 24H-MATTE FOUNDATION

I can't seem to put my finger on it but there's something really likeable about this new L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte foundation.  I picked it up a few weeks ago and have been using it when I've had my fake tan on, I picked the shade '20 Sand' which looked like one of the only shades that didn't have too much of a pink undertone.

This foundation gives a matte finish that apparently lasts up to 24 hours, I can't really say that this claim is true as I always remove my makeup after 8-10 hours but I'm really impressed by it's staying power and how well it covers.  My makeup still looks pretty fresh 8-10 hours later exactly just how I applied it on the morning so it's definitely a big thumbs up in regards to coverage and staying power.
It's also waterproof and steam-proof with no cakey effect.  I usually apply one layer but if I'm having a bad skin day then I'll apply two layers for extra coverage and it still looks fresh without being too much, I really hate the cakey skin look so this is great because it offers the full coverage but ensures my skin still looks like skin.

I quite like the plastic tube packaging as you can simply squeeze out as much or as little as you want without wastage.  You also get 35ml worth of product so it's bound to last quite a while... this will probably last me around 9 months to a year as I tend to mix up my foundation routine and use different products for different occasions. 

The only thing I'm not fussed on is the shade range, the shade I picked looked like the closest match to my fake tanned skin and it does match fine but I can still see a slight underdone of pink which I don't think suits many people.  If it was more yellow then it would be perfect... there's also a very limited shade selection which is quite rubbish for such a big brand.  Other than that, I think this foundation is excellent and is certainly one to try out for those of you who have oily skin and love a super matte finish.
