Summary
I was lucky to have 7 samples of L'Oréal Paris Infallible Foundation (140 Golden Beige) and tested those prior to making decision on a buy. The product ad promised longevity, no transfer, no shine, no visible imperfections, yet it delivered only partly. The colouring is good and it masks well, providing a good cover even for dark circles under my eyes. It produces no shine either. However, the texture is quite heavy (greasy) and each time I used it I felt as though my skin was suffocating a bit. This foundation is also prone to smudging i.e. it easily transfers onto clothing which is especially disappointing in the cold season when I usually wear turtlenecks. I can not comment on packaging of a full-sized item since I have had only samples (1 ml) and their packaging is not very convenient.
In general, 5 samples out of 7 I used to their immediate purpose as a foundation and was not very satisfied with the outcome. The remaining samples I had used as a concealer for my dark under-eye circles - and that was the best application of L'Oréal Paris Infallible Foundation in my case.

This foundation is yet another product in a long list of foundations I have tried. I admit I was minimally seduced by the claim of flawless coverage and up to 16 hours wear, but little further down the line with more experience I know that these claims are often over exaggerated! This foundation comes in an attractive hourglass shaped bottle with a sanitary and practical pump dispense lid which is very good to prevent over usage of your product. When pumped form the bottle this product has a thick texture and I was mildly amazed at the fact that there is a floral fragrance. I found that when you applied this product to the skin you have to work quickly as it dries fast. This resulted in a streaky coverage which try as I might I could not even out. The end result was very patchy and uneven coverage! The colour match was good but there is a very powdery finish to this foundation that just looked obvious and unnatural on my skin.
The write up also claims that this foundation does not transfer but I found that every time I touched my face the foundation transferred to my hands and to my phone, clothing and my husband! Simply whatever came into contact with my face ending up wearing my foundation. The 16 hours of wear is possibly the worst claim of this product as I found after 3 hours whatever small amount of foundation that hadn’t transferred off my face had all but disappeared!
Many L’Oreal foundations have worked well on my skin but this is possibly one of the worst I have ever tried from any range and I was left sorely disappointed. For me this foundation is not infallible but unusable!!

Too thick, colouring did not match and was a bit greasy
Summary
I found this foundation far too thick, the colour did not match my skin tone at all, even though I had the lightest.
Skin looked a little patchy and I found my skin looked quite greasy when it was on.
Personally, it is a foundation I would never use again.

Good price for foundation.
Weakest points
This was too greasy for my skin unfortunately (I have what I would describe as 'normal skin'). I found that I broke out in spots after using this product and so have reverted back to using No7!
Summary
May just be unsuitable for me, may suit others. Good price but I won't be buying again.
