Catrice Infinite Matt up to 18h make up definitively has mouthful name. It’s available in 3 shades and once again I have the lightest one – Light Beige no. 010.
Oil-free formula absorbs unwanted shine and ensures a smooth and natural matte complexion for up to 18 hours. Has moisturizing effect and light-reflecting pigments, your skin will look beautifully radiant. The perfect basis for this season’s make-up looks – without a mask-like effect.
Trick question as it really depends on the base/face cream you’re using. Most of the time it looks matte (but not completely so as it does have some kind of tiny shiny particles) to semi-matte on me, but the matte effect does not last for a long time.
Medium to strong (is buildable).
Formula is on the thicker side with slight perfume scent to it.
As with rest of the thicker formulas I had best results either with stippling or unifying application with sponge. Real Techniques Expert brush works great for this foundation also (like all the other foundations I tried it with). I do have to mention that I found this foundation pretty easy to use with all the application methods … but the flawless finish of Real Techniques Expert brush wins in my book.
Glass bottle with the pump.
~6,50 EUR for 30ml (1.01 fl.oz.).
I didn’t notice any kind of heavy oxidation … it gets little bit darker on my hand but there is hardly any change on my face.
It nicely covers up my wide pores, red patches … without making my skin looking cakey.
I’m still having trouble photographing foundation on my face, but I hope this details tells you at least little something about Catrice Infinite Matt 18h liquid foundation.
I’m slowly switching from matte foundations to more moisturizing ones (Catrice Photo Finish 18h Liquid Foundation would be great if they only released lighter shade) as “matte” liquid foundations just don’t work with my flaky skin (and I managed to seriously reduce the amount of dried out/flaked patches).
Catrice Infinite Matt is still in use though – mostly for mixing it with other foundations that are too dark of yellow. This foundation leaves slight whitish cast which is not really problem for me most of the time as that blends well with my undertone. :D
It gets plus for being really light and for lasting decent time on my skin, but it does not work with flaky skin + I’m not in love with the scent.
Would I recommend it?
I think those with very pale oily skin with neutral to yellow undertone should check it out. There are not many drugstore foundations like it in this color range … as you probably already know. If I’m not mistaken there are tester bottles in drugstores so you can try it out and see if it works for you.
*I bought my first Infinite Matte foundation, but everybody had different experience than me so I asked importer for “fresh” bottle to see if there was something off with my first one … but they’re pretty much the same.
