SPEND VS. SAVE: L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte VS. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation + Youtube Video


Now here's the most requested blog post and Youtube video on my Facebook fan page: L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte and Maybelline Fit Me foundations! These are two of the most awaited foundation releases from both brands; both products made by the same company, but totally different performance. Which one is the best and worth the purchase? Find out!


THE LOWDOWN:

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte (P700.00) is the follow up release to Infallible 24 Hr. Liquid Foundation here in the Philippines; it boasts of a medium to full coverage finish that lasts for 24 hours.

Maybelline Fit Me (P399.00), which is dubbed as the best- selling foundation franchise in the US, has finally arrived and boasts of medium to full coverage finish that helps control oil and stays matte for hours.

QUALITY:

Maybelline's formula is moisturizing liquid that builds up easily and I'm impressed that it doesn't leave a streaky finish even with minimal blending.

L'Oreal's formula is semi- creamy, feels lightweight despite the formula, and finish is not caky.

The foundations have good formulas, respectively.

WINNER: IT'S A TIE!


COVERAGE:

Both products yield medium to full coverage, but I seem to get better coverage and skin when I'm using L'Oreal.

WINNER: L'OREAL

STAYING POWER:

L'Oreal for me. My face turned slick and oily with Maybelline, plus it oxidized at day's end. :(

WINNER: L'OREAL

CONCLUSION:

L'Oreal is not my most favorite drugstore foundation brand for nothing and Infallible Pro-Matte has proven to me again why. Infallible Pro Matte is one of the best full coverage drugstore foundations locally and hands down, one that has the best staying power too; a friend who works for an agency and who only swears by the waterproof-ness of KVD Lock It like me uses this on a daily basis like me too!

WINNER:

L'OREAL INFALLIBLE PRO MATTE

VERDICT: SPEND!

  6. Yessss!!! Been waiting for this, Ate! ❤ I have them both din but mas okay sakin ang Maybelline, siguro kasi lightest shade nakuha ko kaya pag nagoxidize sakin tama lang while yung Infallible is just the right shade na pag nagoxidize, hello dark spots 😭 but with Infallible Pro-Matte powder it is perfect!!!! 😍 i love them both. ❤ L'Oreal is currently my everyday foundation lalo na pag nagmamadali ako. Si Maybelline kasi walang pump kaya ang hirap hehe. Will watch your video now ate. 😘

  8. Parang Team Fit Me po ako. Hehe maa malala po yung pag oxidize sa akin ng L'oreal. And parang Foundation day ang ganap lagi haha pero pang matagalan djn po talaga pero may tendency na mag cake pero yung Fit Me po, parang my skin but better and medyo di po malakas mag oxidize sa akin.

  9. Oh my gosh, I have for the longest time been weighing which one of the two to purchase. Thanks for helping me finally decide- I will be getting the Loreal one as my first ever foundation! I am a college student on a budget and I am new to makeup, so I need something that will be worth my penny. I hope this will work! Wish me luck and thank you, always!

  10. Hi Ms. Martha! Actually I was looking forward to a half face test between the 2 sa video, like Fit Me on the right side of your face and Infallible on the left. Teehee! But then again, the comparison talk you made was good enough for people to decide which one is better for them. I for one would like Infallible for my skin. As I said in my YT comment, L'oreal is my fave drugstore brand!

  11. Yayyyy! Kahit maybelline girl ako parang mas bet ko din ang si loreal kaya Team both! πŸ˜‚ I would really love to try them both! Thanks ate martha! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

  12. Intense na labanan! πŸ™Œ
    For drugstore foundie I only trust L'oreal coz I've been slave by their true match line for quite a long years bafore. hehehe
    Now I wonder if this infallible pro matte is better than the true match?

    p.s What causes the oxidation of foundations Ms. M? I always have the same experience whenever I use Maybelline's Dream matte mousse foundation in my face. Is it the the acidity?

  13. L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte is really awesome. It covers my chickenpox scars without much effort. L'Oreal often holds sales so you can get it for as low as 350 pesos!

    Tip: If you also own L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation, you can mix it with Pro-Matte so it will glide more easily. Coverage isn't affected at all.

  14. Eto na ang pinakahihintay ng lahat! I have the L'OrΓ©al Infallible pro-matte powder that I got on sale. For sure bagay siya gamitin for setting the foundation. I am now convinced to buy the Infallible foundation. Abangers na ako sa next sale ng L'OrΓ©al! Haha. Sobrang thank you po for this Ms.M. ❤

  18. Bet na bet ko din talaga yung infallible ate martha, yan yung always kong ginagamit pagUmaalis ako. Super ganda nya sa face, Ang gusto ko sa kanya is kapag nagooil ako di sya naghuhulas. Kaya bet ko talaga yan!

  19. Finally! Naopen ko na rin blog mo. Anyway, i already watched your vlog before read g this. Been planning yo biy Maybelline fit me poreless foundation, nag dodoubt ba tuloy ako sa oil control nya. Thank you for the review!

  20. Watched it already and had a change of heart haha! Mas gusto ko dati yung Maybelline fit me kasi mas natural ang dating. But then mas maganda pala si Loreal infallible, especially for oily skin. Thank you for this, kasi balak ko talaga bumili nun. Pero how about yung Maybelline fit me concealer, natry mo na po ba? :)

  21. I always wanted the Pro-matte, and when it was available here I didn't pass a chance to own one. Even if the Maybelline Fit Me is also hyped, it didn't really appeal to me because of the reviews I've watched. So it was Infallible Pro-Matte for the Win!
