I’m back with a review of this year’s most awaited beauty product, the Lorea’l Paris Infalliable line!
I chose to buy the Lorea’l Paris Infalliable Pro Matte Powder (200 Natural Beige) from this line because I usually use compact powder everyday as sometimes using a BB cream or a foundation is a hassle especially when I’m late for work. lol.
I waited for this product to be on sale as Php 600 was a bit too much for a compact powder. Lo and behold, BeautyMNL had a sale and I bought this for only Php 499.00
Product Description (From the official Lorea’l’ Paris PH website):
“Absorbs excess oil and reduces shine on the skin’s surface for up to 16 hours. The lightweight pressed powder can be used alone, to set foundation after application, and/or throughout the day for quick touch-ups.”
The packaging has a simple design, the product comes in a flip open design and has a divider, the upper part is the powder while the bottom part is the mirror and the puff. It’s the same design as the Lorea’l Mat Magique All-in-one pressed powder.
I find this product a bit dark on me especially when it oxidized on my skin. I tried this alone and I like that it gives a full coverage even with just 1 or 2 layers but I prefer to use a brush when applying this since I find that this is an excellent setting powder! I’ve tested this with and without a moisturizer, and I found out that it emphasized the dry areas of my face like the sides of my nose and lips so you really need a moisturizer before using this.
I’ve used this with my ECONECO BB Cream when I was in Singapore and it gave me a flawless look, definitely no oilies the whole day but of course I oiled up after 7 hours. Also, I’ve tried this with my Canmake Serum BB cream, it made me oil up after 5 hours reeaaaal quick but using an oil-blotter helped and I didn’t need to retouch that much.
I look so Tita here. Anywhoo, this photo was taken at Singapore, I’m wearing the Lorea’l Paris Infalliable Pro-Matte Powder with the Econeco BB Cream underneath. Before this photo, we just got back from Changi Airport, explored Orchard Road and Lucky Plaza. I was literally sweating when we got back in our room so I did a touch up. My friend asked if I’ve just taken a shower, I said no, I just put BB cream and foundation on. So yeah, this product rocks.
Another picture taken outside and I’m already sweating but the product still keeps my makeup in tact and looking flawwwlesss~ It can’t hide my pimples tho.
I really like using this as it gives a great matte coverage, it looks natural, lightweight as it feels like I have nothing on though it did not keep my face oil free for up to 16 hours.
Will I repurchase?
Uhhh, I’m still not decided even though this product is really good. I guess I’m expecting more from this and It’ll take a while for me to repurchase it.
