Foundation; The Struggle

I'm quite pale so finding foundation is hard but basically only wear it to look more alive and healthy.  The struggle is not to look orange or have a line on my neck.

My other struggle is running out so quickly and the glass bottles make it so hard to get the last bits.  There are loads of different foundations but money doesn't grow on trees.

After some research, I recently settled on trying the L'Oreal Paris Infalliable 24H-Matte Foundation in shade Vanilla, which is the second lightest shade.

First of all, I like the packaging because it's in a tube that you can cut to get the last bits and its 35ml instead of the usual 30ml that most bottles hold.  The nozzle once the lid is off, is perfect for dispensing just enough on your brush or sponge.

When using it for the first time I really wasn't sure as I felt so pale like I wasn't wearing anything on my skin.  But once I had some bronzer on, I looked great.

It is very mattifying as it almost feels like once you have applied the foundation, you don't need powder to set but I do anyway.

After a while of using this product it definitely seems darker when I put it on my skin.  I don't know whether this because my skin has got paler or the foundation has oxidised in the tube?  I also find that it rolls up in little balls on the make up brush sometimes and falls everywhere but maybe that is because I need to wash my brushes or not?

Before I was using the Rimmel Pore Perfect in Ivory or maybe true Ivory which is nice and very liquid compared to the L'Oreal thicker foundation.

I got this on 9th July 2016 and I already feel like it may be running out, oh dear.

Overall I give this product 4/5 stars and it is very long lasting!
