Hello IMBB Cuties,

The L’oreal Paris Infallible range of products were recently launched in India, though as usual, all the products available abroad have not been launched. L’oreal Paris Infallible Lasting Perfecting Foundation has already been reviewed by Nupur here. I picked up the L’oreal Paris Infallible 16 Hour concealer in the shade – 04 Golden Beige, priced at Rs. 900. I could not find the quantity mentioned anywhere.

Golden BEige

This is a stick concealer in a twist-up form and is packed in a red and grey plastic casing, the upper outer cap being of transparent plastic. It did have a fragrance which I couldn’t quite pin down, I wonder whether I should describe the smell as “inky” or something like that. :hihi:  However, the fragrance didn’t cause any irritation on my super-sensitive skin and did not stay around after application.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Infallible 16H Concealer – 04 Golden Beige:

I was looking for something between a liquid concealer and a cream concealer, mainly because in the hot and humid summer climate, liquid concealers make me sweat a lot and add more moisture to my (already oily) skin, and cream concealers are too heavy and uncomfortable in summer. I found this concealer from L’Oreal to be the perfect “in-between” and exactly what I need nowadays.

This feels really lightweight, blends very easily and the main point is that it gives long-lasting wear without moving around the area and looking patchy.  All you need to do is lightly pat it on the area to be concealed and allow it to set. It does not set to a dry finish, but to a long-lasting kind of cream-to-powder finish and neither does it look cakey. Depending on your choice, you can set it with a light dab of compact powder and then it remains even more perfect – this will be good for you if you have oily skin like me.

I mentioned NC20/NW 25 skin tone because my facial skin varies between the two tones, on some days it behaves very sensitive and I get a lot of redness, so then I use NW25 makeup (meaning warmer shades) and on other days when my skin doesn’t play up, I use NC20 makeup (cooler shades) which suits me better, or sometimes on some crazy days, I just use a blend of both the shades and it works out fine !!!! That’s just me, hehehe. :balle:

What I Like about L’Oreal Paris Infallible 16H Concealer – 04 Golden Beige:

  • Gives high coverage.
  • Feels very light on skin.
  • Blends out well.
  • Long-lasting and doesn’t move around once it sets.
  • Lasts at least 6 to 8 hours on my oily skin.
  • Doesn’t set to a dry cakey finish, but feels smooth and comfortable.
  • Contains skin-friendly ingredients like jojoba oil and Vitamin E.

What I Did Not Like about L’Oreal Paris Infallible 16H Concealer – 04 Golden Beige:

  • Has a kind of “unable to describe” fragrance.
  • Would have appreciated a bigger amount of product for that price.
  • I wonder about the 16-hour claim, but to be honest, I have never worn any makeup for that long.

IMB Rating:

4 on 5.

Final Word on L’Oreal Paris Infallible 16H Concealer – 04 Golden Beige:

This is a really good, high-performance, long-wearing concealer for summer and if you need something that feels light and works hard, you should consider giving this a try.

  1. nice review Sabrina :yes: . i have had not so great experiences with stick concealers (Revlon & chambor for e.g) becos it ends up lookig patchy but you have made this one look very promising 😉 . the swatches on the wrists always work cos the skin is tighter whereas on the undereyes they dont becos the skin is so much tender there. Sorry dont mean to be a dampener but you think that using it with an eyecream or something will work better?. i am currently using MAC and am always looking a backup concealer which will work just as well hence all these questions.. :stars: :stars:

    1. Hi Aru, and thank you. IMO, in the case of a liquid concealer, you might be able to use it with a slight dot of eye cream or even when your skin has just been moisturised, but I think in the case of this particular concealer under review, you might not be able to blend it out evenly if you use it with a cream, as it is already soft and sets to a long-lasting finish. MAC has a cream concealer in a jar which you might like to check out. Thanks again. :))

  2. hiya Sabrina :yahoo:

    1. Heylo Nupur, thank you so much. You take such good pics, so I’m glad you liked the photos. How are you doing? :)) :))

    1. Hi Jomol, i’m doing fine thanks, Easter week is going fine, we have Church services every evening. I went out in the morning & did some ‘grocery’ shopping 😀 😀 😀 – bought the brown & gold Maybelline eyeliner gel, 2 Maybelline lippies, 2 blushes, and oh, Lakme has introduced one more awesome shimmery gloss called Cherry Shine – got that too, and bought 2 kurtas from Westside. :woot:
