Review: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Primer Matte Base


Like the foundation (reviewed here) the primer is packaged in a clear plastic tube so you can see how much of the product you’ve used.  I’m a big fan of this as there is nothing worse than being caught short when you run out of a product.  It is also very light for carrying around on-the-go.

Consistency and Finish

This primer feels an awful lot like the Bare Minerals Prime Time primer, which is also clear like this one.  It feels silky on the skin and glides on very easily.  This primer claims to offer a matte finish, but it does not seem to mattify the skin more than any other primer I have had.  It does work wonderfully as a primer though, with my foundation lasting longer with than without it.

Product packaging


As it is a drugstore primer, it is pretty cheap at £8.99 at Boots, unlike Prime Time which retails for £23 at Debenhams.  L’Oréal products are also on 3 for 2 at Boots in the UK right now, so it’s worth checking out their other products.

Product on the skin before setting


I really love this drugstore primer, I have even found myself ditching my old faithful Benefit Porefessional in favour of it.  I have also nearly run out of my Prime Time, so will be using this instead of buying anymore.  Despite not being super mattifying, this is a fabulous primer that I would highly recommend.  100% Emma endorsed!
