Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a favourite face powder, providing long lasting coverage with a delightful, lightweight finish.\n\nInfallible Compact Powder Foundation is made to last - I apply it over any of my foundations or CC Creams, knowing it'll keep my makeup in place & melt-proof in the hot Perth weather.\n\nThe texture is divine - L'oreal manage to combine function with a powder that is so lightweight & finely textured, you can barely notice you're wearing it.  It never looks like I'm wearing powder, and it never gets patchy, cakey, or settles into fine-lines.\n\nThere's only a few shades, but they are quite neutral & I know easily found a perfect match for my skin tone. I can never notice I'm wearing mine, except that my makeup won't budge & isn't melting or slipping. \n\nHighly recommended - for the price, this feels like it cost 3 x as much.\n\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I usually tend to use a foundation and powder. With this product I just use the powder and I find the coverage really good. I have found since not using a foundation as well my skin is more clear and free from open pores. I would recommend this powder as it stays on for quite a few hours without reapplying. I don't know about it staying on for 24 hours but I would say about 5 hours. Really worth the price. Good product/

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This compact is ideal for people on-the-move, who need an instant high-coverage touch up for prominent blemishes, redness or marks on the skin. I can trust this to refine and perfect the areas of my face where foundation typically transfers, such as my nose or my chin, as I'm always resting my hand or touching them throughout the day. It provides a completely matte finish and doesn't feel too heavy. I have drier skin so I wouldn't recommend this powder for setting the entire face, as because it is matte it has the tendency to cling onto drier patches and begin to flake if you've built it up too much. However, applying this sparingly on my problem areas is enough to cover them for a good portion of the day. Another major downside is that this powder goes orange on me within a couple hours! I've tried to pair it with different foundations to figure out what's causing it but every time it brings out an orange tone after a couple hours of wear!! Ultimately, just to be safe I'd grab this up if you have more of a medium-tan skin tone, adore completely matte, high-coverage powders and are always needing a handy compact and applicator with you on the go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The powder comes in a square transparent plastic compact with separate portion of puff/sponge and mirror inside. The sponge was just a normal one, not so impressive.  \n\nThe powder is fragrace free and it has silky,  finely milled texture.  It is also very pigmented, a soft touch to the powder is enough for use. I applied it with its puff and gave me silky, velvety and flaw less skin. It did not settle into fine lines and pores and did not emphasis dry patches of my skin. It perfectly blended into my skin, did not look chalky and artificial. I used it alone with out foundation but it gave me perfect skin with out looking fancy powdery. Its staying power is not as long as it claims, you will need touch-ups if you have oily skin. On my dry to normal skin, it lasts for up to 7 hours.\n\nI like with this powder, this is one of the best powders I have ever used. The only problem is its packing, as most of the women keep face powder in their hand bags for touch-ups but this powder has very delicate packing. It can easily break in your bag. I wish this powder comes in a strong sleek packing\n\nThis powder will be for you If you have normal, dry, combination or mature skin. This product is not for you if you have oily skin and you live in a very hot humid weather.\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Though this is essentially a powder product I find it actually helps to hide fine lines around my eyes really well.  It has an incredible high coverage which I love the look of and it works excellently to hide blemishes, freckles or sunspots.  I like to use this straight over the top of my moisturiser or sometimes my BB or CC cream too.  This is a beautiful fine, high-quality foundation powder in a compact that comes with it's own self-contained applicator sponge and mirror compartment underneath.  I really love this added bonus!  It feels like such great value!\n\nI have this in Warm Sand which is perfect for me as I have strong medium colouring with yellow undertones. This Warm Sand colour  is a great match for my skin and therefore I  think this range has some great colours because often I find it hard to find the correct colour in other brands to suit me. I find the amazing soft and fully matte finish that this product gives my skin to be very flattering too.  It's not drying at all like some powdery products can be on me.   I also love the way I can also use the sponge applicator to strategically apply the product like a concealer - right around my eye area if that's all I want to wear that day instead of a full face of make-up.\n\nIt's great for travel as it's a complete compact with everything I need to apply it well.  I can highly recommend this product for any age and for those looking for a foundation that offers more coverage than most.\n\n

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.
