L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer Review


Loreal Infallible Mattifying Base primer review


Hey hey

The Drugstore Primer series is almost coming to an end with just two more to go( find out which primer I am using now on my Instagram!)! This week’s review will be on the L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer I have been using for the past week (I’m a little late with this review)

L’Oréal’s mattifying primer promises to minimise imperfections, pores and shine. It gives a mattifying effecting and a velvet soft even surface


This primer isn’t what I thought it would be. I first thought it would be super matte and super drying so I wasn’t really looking forward to it. However, it’s none of that. It has a smooth texture and gives a nice canvas to work on. It has some pore reducing abilities but this isn’t a lot. In terms of mattifying, it doesn’t give a very mattifying finish, maybe a semi-matte finish.

It also claims to be oil controlling but I’m on the fence about this. My t-zone still gets slightly oily after 4 to 5 hours of wear and which is the usual time it takes anyway. What I do like about the primer though is that it keeps your makeup looking good even after sweating. (Probably because I combined it with the setting spray). I used this primer when I went to Oxford Street for some errands and at the end of the day my makeup looked good, no rubbing off or melting away.

I do wish though it give a little bit more smoothness when applied but nonetheless it’s a nice primer.



A nice primer from L’Oréal although for the price and its claims I wanted slightly more from it. I like it because it didn’t give me a really matte finish but for someone wanting that they may find this slightly disappointing ( a friend with oily skin who using this as well says it makes her skin oily lol). The primer is non-comedogenic which means it wont clog your pores, a win if you have large pores. It also goes on clear and dries clear


L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer is £7.99 from Boots

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)
