Considered a "must-try" by the first round of Sugar Spotlight reviewers, the L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation sounds like a foundation you need to have in your beauty arsenal. Offering the perfect day-to-night coverage and a built-in brush, check out what Rebecca and co. had to say!
"While I could wax lyrical about all the things I LOVE about this foundation, I've narrowed it down to three key qualities. Amazing application: With just a couple of twists, the foundation seeps into the built-in brush, ready for application! In no time flat, you have an even coverage, with the bristles of the brush perfectly following the contours of the face and allowing for easier blending on the trickier parts, such as the hairline. The twist applicator also makes sure a little foundation goes a long way. Perfect coverage: The coverage was instant, even and didn't look caked-on. Some foundations can make my skin look tight or expose my pores, but not this baby! I was pleasantly surprised to be left with a supple finish on my skin. Long-lasting wear: L'Oreal manages to achieve the once-impossible with this foundation — it feels as light as air, yet is thick enough to provide all-day coverage. I'm in foundation heaven." — Rebecca

"To say I am impressed is an understatement! The L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation is so good that I may consider leaving my trusted (and far more expensive!) brands for it! It was beyond easy to apply and the matte finish looked so professional yet luminous and not dull at all. The precision edge of the brush was great around the eyebrow area and the quality of the bristles didn't irritate my skin whilst applying. The formula didn't stick to my pre-winter dry areas either which was a miracle. I have already recommended it to my sister!" — Kate
"I’m really impressed with L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation. I found the consistency offered great coverage without being too thick, which is really important if you want that ‘no makeup-makeup look’. The handy built-in brush ensured an even application was spread on the face, and the smooth finish covered imperfections without looking caked-on. I’ll definitely be using this foundation often now that winter has hit and my skin needs a little perk." — Arial
"I was an instant fan of L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation, simply because I love the ease and convenience of the brush and foundation in one bottle. It was easy to apply and I found that I didn't have to reapply throughout the day. A great new product, one I will definitely recommend to friends!" — Lana
"This foundation feels very light on the skin, blends smoothly and easily, has a lovely even finish and provides buildable coverage. It feels almost like a tinted moisturiser, but with a second layer I could get heavier coverage without it looking cakey. The attached brush was surprisingly soft and would be perfect for when I’m travelling and don’t want to lug all of my brushes around (would be great if it was detachable for cleaning though!) The only thing I didn’t like about this product was the lasting power, as I found myself having to touch up during the day." — Alya
"I was very keen to try the L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation based on the brush applicator and its claim that you don’t need to use your fingers at all. I found the product worked best when I put the foundation on my hand and gradually applied it to my face — the first time I put it straight on my face in a big blob and it took ages to blend it in! So once I’d worked out the best way to apply it, I found the brush was a great tool for spreading the foundation around and blending it in thanks to the soft bristles. The final result was great coverage without a caked-on makeup look or feel. Top marks from me!" — Genevieve
"I have used the new L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation brush over eight times. My initial impression on the foundation I was a bit sceptical that it would apply well etc. I was very pleasantly surprised it was easy to use, great colour, and provided really good coverage. Great for use over eyes and nose as it glides over the contours well. I did how ever have to blend around my hair and neckline just to make sure there was no visible makeup line. Overall I would continue to use this product." — Olivia
"This L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation was sent to me in Golden Sand — perfect for my light-medium skin with yellow undertones. This product provides medium coverage, light texture that lasted six to eight hours. The brush is soft and applies the product smoothly, however the brush needs to be detachable for adequate cleaning. The build-up of foundation is a breeding ground for bacteria and could cause breakouts. I will continue to use it, however, I’ll clean it with an anti-bacterial wipe. Recommended for all skin types, unless you’re a clean freak! 8/10." — Jenny
"I was pleasantly surprised by both the soft application brush and the smooth foundation itself. Together they make the perfect touch-up tool that will now live in my handbag! Very impressed with the coverage, but I am happier to apply on top of my regular foundation which I use far more liberally. The colour is natural with a nice glow effect. The only downside is that it didn’t quite cover those dark under eye zones, but I did challenge the product on a Sat morning after a big Friday night, which isn’t very fair! Thanks for sending me this wonderful product to try, I would definitely recommend as an essential ‘on-the-go’ item." — Jessica
"L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation is a long wearing, light, buildable coverage foundation with SPF 19. I love that this foundation minimises the appearance of my pores and is easy to work with. When used over primer and set with powder it gives a long wearing, flawless, matte finish without caking or patchiness. The downside was that I used a great deal to achieve my desired coverage. The brush gave a streaky finish if you don’t use it in a patting motion to help blend after following instructions which meant it was time consuming! I found a stippling brush gave best and quickest result. Lastly it’s pricey for only 25mls. I would consider repurchasing the pump bottle as the foundation is really good."— Jody
"In a world where we are faced with foundation dilemmas of liquid/powder/matte/dewy/mineral it’s hard to find one that provides coverage but won’t make your facialist curse you. Having previously used a brand that was triple the amount of L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Brush Foundation, I was pleasantly surprised when I found that I still received the same even coverage, long-lasting wear, and light finish. It didn’t rub or transfer onto clothes or hands and for a product easily accessible and at a fraction of the cost of most, my face has advised that we will be using this product again!" — Nicole
"I found the product very easy to use, the high impact bristles made the application a breeze and felt smooth on my skin. Upon application there was complete coverage and yet my skin was still able to breath and didn't feel heavy." — Stacey
"I normally find products that come with a built-in brush (or any brush for that matter!) a bit rubbish. They always seem to be lacking in quality and feel quite harsh on my skin, but I'll try anything once, so thought I'd give the new L'Oreal Paris foundation a go! The first time I used it I was amazed at how soft the bristles are — and flexible, too. They feel like a "proper" brush, not one that's already attached, so I found the foundation applied really well, even in tough areas of my face like the nose. The foundation was neither cakey or too heavy either, which is good, and it lasted all day! I'll definitely continue to use it!" — Marie
