Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless vs. L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24 Hour Foundation Comparison Review

Bonjour!

On the menu of today’s blog is a comparison review between the two hottest matte drugstore foundations as of the moment. The Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation and the L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte 24 Hour Foundation. Both foundations hit the Philippine market this year but they are long raved upon internationally. Although not all the shades of both foundations are available in the country, those that are matches most of the the pinay skin tones.

– MY SHADE AND PACKAGING-

For the Maybelline Fit Me, I got the lightest shade available in our counters which is 120 Classic Ivory.

Picture 007The  packaging of the foundation is a glass bottle with plastic cap but unfortunately no dispenser or stopper which is a “nay!” because it is very prone to spillage. The glass bottle  though looks a bit luxurious is still fragile and can break with just one wrong move.

103 Natural Buff of L’oreal Infallible is a little dark for my skin tone but I picked it up anyway because it’s the lightest shade that I can get and it’s actually not super far from my complexion. 

UPDATE (September 2017) : I was informed that the shade 102  is already available on L’oreal counters in the country, this I think it is the perfect shade for me). 

Picture 006I personally think that the packaging of this foundation is much better than the Fit Me because it is a squeeze-tube plastic container. This means less chances of spillage (of course with the cap in place) and more control in dispensing the foundation.

-CONSISTENCY-

The consistency of the Maybelline Fit Me is more liquidy and runny as compared to the L’oreal Infallible which is much thicker. I have no problem with the difference of their consistencies anyway because they are both blendable and easy to apply especially with the use of my trusty beauty blender.

-SWATCHES-

As you can tell with the swatches the Maybelline Fit Me is the perfect shade for me but then again, I can still work well with the L’oreal Infallible’s shade.

To fully test the performance of these two matte foundations, I have worn both yesterday (one for each side of my face for better comparison) for a good 9 hours. It was the perfect time because I was out on the streets for almost 7 hours running errands. 

My skin type : Sensitive, Combination (dry on the sides of the nose and upper jaw areas, oily on the T-zone area).

Cost/Content/Packaging

 

P399.00 for 30 ml. packaged in a Glass bottle with cap. (No dispenser).

P700.00 for 30 ml. packaged in a Squeezy Plastic Tube with tiny nozzle and cap.

Consistency/Coverge/Finish

 

 

Liquidy and runny that can provide Sheer to Medium Coverage and is totally buildable.

Leaves a matte finish but with a bit of glow and looks more natural than the Infallible.

Two layers are what I needed to achieve a medium coverage.

Thicker than the Fit Me foundation and can provide Medium to Full Coverage but with more tendencies to cake up.

Flat Matte and looks like I am indeed wearing a foundation.

One layer is good enough for me.

 

                                 BOTH FOUNDATIONS

Accentuates dry areas of the face like the sides of my lips and nose as well as small bumps. You need to moisturize really well before applying these foundations if you have really dry skin.

Does not totally hide the pores but blurs them. Some foundation settled on the pores of my nose where they are a bit larger.

Looks much better when mixed with natural facial oils (about 5 hours after application).

Application and Feel to the Skin (with the use of a beauty blender)

Easier to blend than the Infallible and does not dry up so quickly.  Lightweight and not sticky.

Easy to blend but dries up quickly. Lightweight and not sticky.

Longevity and Oil Control

Time of Application: 10:00 in the morning.

 

BOTH FOUNDATIONS

Both foundations are still perfect on the skin up to about 7 hours after application. They actually looked much nicer and more natural. I applied my Coty Airspun Translucent Powder on top of the foundations.

After 9 hours, there are already uncovered areas of my face such as my chin, nose and jaw. Still my blush is visible. The foundation caked a little on the sides of my nose and upper jaw area, these are my dry spots.

Both are better in oil-control. I wore the foundations for 9 hours straight but I did not blot considering I ran errands from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. I noticed that my nose and forehead shined a little but it’s totally acceptable for me.

Both foundations did not break me out which is a very good thing for me. If I were to choose from the two, I would say that I love both of them though I think I will be using the Maybelline Fit Me more often than the L’oreal Infallible one. I hope this blog could help those of you who are still wondering what foundation to purchase.
