Makeup: Skin

So it's been a very loooong minute since I posted. March to be exact. But, I'm back and have a lot of stuff I want to talk about. 

What I love about blogging is that it's a community of people sharing what they love, whatever that may be. I love testing out new products (who doesn't?!) and finding that one that changes all your old ways and this L'oreal Paris Infallible foundation is that product for me.

Best part, it's under $12 at good old Target.

Back story: I've been using the same Cover Girl foundation since high school and while it worked perfectly for me than, I found that it pretty much did me no favors in my mid-twenties. The CG looked like speckled paint. Pregnancy, acne and a bad diet really messed me up so I had to find something else. Enter this L'oreal. The first time I tried could be compared to the sun breaking up dark clouds. I couldn't believe how well it covered and how well it matched my skin! It was truly love at first blend. It has a smooth, matte finish and is build able if an area needs extra coverage. 

For comparison, I tried a sample of Chanel foundation and you know what, I was very unimpressed. I didn't even finish the tiny sample that I had and threw it away. It didn't cover well and my skin looked dull. So lesson learned just because something is almost 5x more expensive does not mean it's better. Maybe it works for some people, but it didn't for me.

Anyway, thank you L'oreal geniuses who made this product. Skin is such a struggle for me so it's a major dream come true to find something that works.
