Combining extreme hold and absolute comfort, the matte formula is impeccable all day with no touch-ups required. Only the smoothest formula that lets your skin breathe, containing 1/3 water for a stretching glide and maximum comfort for all day wear. Perlite technology acts like mineral micro sponges to help absorb excess oil and water, so it is clinically proven waterproof, sweat proof and steam proof.



Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like to use this foundation in the summer as it is matte and keeps my face looking shine free all the day.  The foundation goes on smoothly but using my foundation brush I blend it nicely with my skin as it can come off a bit streaky.  Make sure you do it as soon as possible because I noticed that it dries rather quickly.  In terms of longevity it does last for quite awhile and even with humidity and sweat it does a good job of holding up.  The coverage is medium and is alright in terms of covering up imperfections but I would still have to use other products, such as concealer, to cover blemishes or pigmentation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked this foundation.  The texture is rather thick so I had to work quickly to blend the product.  I found a good color match and this is definitely more matte than a standard foundation (I've got combination skin with an oily t-zone). But I didn't find it long wearing, and would need to touch up throughout the day.  I also felt the product didn't stretch very far,  I ran out quicker than I would other foundations but I didn't use it more than I normally would.  I found it applied better with a buffing brush than a makeup sponge. Overall I thought it was ok but did not repurchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Having recently run out of a competitors version of a Matte finish foundation, I was delighted to review this product. I don't go for a shiny/dewy finish to my foundation as I suffer sometimes from oily skin, so this suited my skin type perfectly. I enjoyed the texture and found it extremely easy to apply with a brush or just with the fingertips. If I would improve this product in any way, it would be to embed a moisturiser that finished with a matte finish also, as it did dry my skin out by the end of two weeks trialling the product. I would continue to use it despite this however!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am currently using the L’oreal 24h Matte foundation and have been quite surprised by it. I normally use a dewy foundation but the Matte finish was nice. It isn’t thick and doesn’t show my pores, it isn’t streaky and lasts me the whole day although I haven’t excercised with it on. Occasionally I suffer from break outs however so far haven’t while using this foundation. I have a patch of dry skin on my chin and I wouldn’t recommend it for really dry skin as it doesn’t have much moisture. Overall I am very happy with this foundation and next I will try the Fresh wear foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Okay so I absolutely ADORE this foundation. Holy grail for those of us who suffer with oily skin. For a Matte foundation it didn't look caked and it still kept a glow. It didn't dry skin out either. The coverage was perfect too. Covered imperfections and it still gave a natural look and didn't get oily and gross! It also didn't feel like I was wearing a full face of make-up which I loved. I wore it out for a day (it was warm) and it stayed on, didn't look horrible at the end of the day and my skin didn't need blotting papers.  I am converted. Loved it. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a medium coverage foundation with oily or combination skin. It was lovely. I would buy it for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I adored this product - this was exactly what I wanted from a matte foundation. It wasn’t a heavy or cakey feeling foundation, whilst still being coverage. What made me love this product was it’s skinfeel. Unlike other foundations, this foundation stayed put, and feels like skin - it doesn’t come off on your fingers or feel powder-y when you touch your skin. It stayed matte, even on top of sunscreen. \n\nPackaging was good too - light and transportable for makeup on the go as well. The product is a little bit runny, so I did find I squeezed out too much product at times. \n

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found this foundation easy to apply as it has a creamy texture that blended well.  I was also able to easily build up coverage where I needed a little bit extra.  It felt lightweight on my skin, I didn't even notice it was on, nor did it budge throughout the day.  I have dry/normal skin, so I applied moisturiser on before the foundation and found no issues with the foundation at all, there was no cakey parts and it stayed as a lovely matte finish. It was easy to remove and I would definitely be using this as my regular every day foundation.  Excellent colour match also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have combination/oily skin and so I tend to go for more matte finish foundation, this foundation was perfect for that! It had a nice soft matte finish that lasted throughout the day, with a medium coverage that did not fade. The only two issues I had with this foundation was the colour range (I had to mix two shades to get a perfect match) and the blendability of the formula. It is a light liquid formula, but I felt that because it was so matte, it took a lot longer to work into the skin without looking patchy. However, this was easily solved by using some hydrating setting spray. Overall, this is a nice, longwear foundation that holds up to its "matte" name and is highly recommended for oily/combo skin girls!

How To:
Festival Makeup with Noni Smith

The unicorn beauty trend might be getting lots of festival traction these days, but let’s not forget about the magical creature that kickstarted this whole otherworldly extravaganza in the first place – mermaids! If you’ve been looking for a way to bring a little blue makeup back into your life, you have come to the right place. Just in time for festival season, L’Oreal Paris Makeup Director Noni Smith has dreamed up a fantastic aqua mermaid makeup look that’ll give the unicorn trend a run for its money.

What you’ll need:

- Infallible Metallic Paint Eyeshadow in Diamond 
- Infallible Paint Eyeshadow in Eternal White 
- La Petite Mini Eyeshadow Palette Optimist 
- Infallible Gel Liner in I’ve Got The Blue target="_blank" rel="noopener" 
- Infallible Gel Liner in Vava Voum 
- Paradise Kajal Liner
- L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Mascara 


Apply the teal shade from La Petite Mini Eyeshadow Palette Optimist to your lid, buffing the edges out so colour is visible when the eye is open. Layer a darker shade along the lash line, softening the edges.

Outline the flame pattern using Infallible Gel Liner in I’ve Got The Blue and Vava Voum, creating contrast between the darker and lighter colours. Use the dark blue to lift the outer corners of the eyes and the light blue to draw attention to the brow bone.


Define your eyes with a thin line of Paradise Kajal Liner on your upper and lower lash lines. Extend the upper lash line outwards into a slight wing.


Using a mix of Infallible Paint Eyeshadow, add depth and drama to your eye makeup. Open up the inner corners with a dash of Eternal White shimmer and add two downward streaks of Infinite Blue on your lower lash line. Lend your lids some extra sparkle with Diamond and Infinite Blue.

Grab your Volume Million Mascara and coat your bottom lashes before moving on to the top. Voila!

Autumn Makeup:
Trends To Try

It's a shame to bid farewell to summer, but fortunately with each new season comes a bevy of new trends and colour palettes to play with. Now's the time to embrace plummy lipsticks, metallic finishes and sumptuous shadows. Discover all the makeup inspiration you need with our top picks for the season.

Moody Eyes
Autumn heralds the return of golden leaves, grey skies and... smokey eyes. Whether it's a creamy latte shade or a rich burgundy, there's something inherently flattering about deeper hues.
Layer burgundy into your crease and blend in some espresso shade drama with the La Petite Palettes in Nudist, creating the perfect autumn eye look.

Sculpted Brows
Nothing says sophistication like a perfectly arched brow. Perfect yours in a flash with Unbelieva’brow, our latest long-wear brow gel with a dual-ended brush.
Fill and sculpt with the angled brush, then comb through with the spoolie for a natural finish. A major perk of the product is that it's waterproof, smudge-proof and budge-proof... and lasts up to two days!

Cat Eyes
Make a statement this season with a bold winged eyeliner. Not only does this look turn heads, it helps make your eyes appear bigger.
If you have a love-hate relationship with the glossy ink, Flash Cat Eye Liner may be your new BFF. With the detachable stencil, you get the perfect wing every time. No more smudges, shaky lines, or uneven flicks.

Lush Lips

With the rest of your look bringing the drama, it's time to pare it back on the lipstick front. Perfect your pout with a swatch of blush nude - we recommend Incessant Russet or Invincible Sable from our Infallible 2-Step collection.

Summer Beauty 101:
5 Summer Beauty Fixes

As much as we love summer, the sweltering heat brings on a whole host of beauty concerns. As well as melting makeup and out-of-control frizz, it tends to be the season in which skin problems flare up. Think oily spots, blackheads, sunburn and more. But summer is too fun to spend time stressing. Simply add these products to your beauty arsenal and address your beauty woes in style.

Fretting over the frizz
The heat has gone to your head—literally—and now your dry strands are soaking up moisture from humid air, causing them to swell and frizz. Grab our Botanicals Reparative Camelina Smoothing Frizz Antidote, which nourishes and protects hair with Camelina and Coconut Oil whilst taming rebellious fly-aways. Adding a weekly intensive treatment to your hair routine like the Camelina Smoothing Mask will also keep your locks hydrated.

Blemishes be gone
Heat and humidity in summer tend to wreak havoc leaving skin congested with dirt, oil and sunscreen. Use our Pure Clay Red Algae Exfoliating Face Scrub to clear away dead skin cells and refine pores. Salicylic acid and pure clay will draw out impurities leaving skin feeling renewed.

Shiny, not so happy
It’s steaming up outside and your sweat glands are in overdrive, making your complexion super slick. Look for formulas labelled ‘oil-free’, ‘mattifying’ or ‘anti-shine’ to nix any sheen and help your makeup stay put for longer. Also, choose a matte finish foundation, such as Infallible Matte 24HR to avoid a shiny summer complexion.

Desert dryness
UV exposure, air-con and dry heat all make for a very parched complexion. Hyaluronic Acid is the critical ingredient you need to make skin plump and radiant once again. Although it sounds complicated, the body actually makes it naturally already, though as we get older this slows down. Our Revitalift range with Hyaluronic Acid will boost and reboot skin to get that youthful glow back.

PROBLEM 5: Can’t tan, won’t tan
SOLUTION: The goody two shoes among us will know, sun damaged skin is an absolute no-no. Not only is there a serious risk of skin cancer but the sun is also incredibly ageing. So, it’s time to up the ante on your SPF each and every day with our Revitalift SPF15 Day Cream. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on a suntan either. Back to Bronze will have you glowing like you’ve just arrived back from holiday.
