Review: L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer

No makeup lovers arsenal is complete without a hardworking primer. As the saying goes you wouldn't build a house without laying foundations, this quote very much applies to your makeup. If you want your makeup to last, not sink into your pores and to not slip off your face you need a decent primer. 

Recently when Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on I opted for the Loreal Infallible Mattifying Primer. I hadn't actually heard anything about this primer which is rare for me when I'm buying beauty products I would usually opt for something that came recommended by one of my blogger friends. What drew me to this product was its likeness to the much applauded Smashbox primer. I am a huge fan of Smashbox photo finish primer but as its a little on the pricy side I decided to opt for this more purse friendly alternative. 


Coming in at €11.99 which was a special offer in Boots its more affordable than its sister Smashbox. I definitely feel after using this primer for over a month that I can vouch for its longevity. It definitely has helped my foundation stay put a little longer however one thing I am not a huge fan of is the feel of it. It does feel a little greasier than the Smashbox primer and I feel like it can tend to leave a bit of a residue on your hands if you apply with your fingers so to get the most out of the primer and without wasting it I definitely recommend using a flat foundation brush to apply the primer before your foundation. 

I know the above photos were taken in totally different lighting however this is to show that the photo on the left was taken in the morning and the photo on the right was taken late that same night. Lipstick is gone and since I wear glasses I always feel makeup tends to fade off quicker on my nose but apart from that it's stayed put pretty well.
