L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt - Review

L-R: Infallible Blush Trio, Infallible Sculpt Contouring Palette.
We first saw this duo of products from L'Oreal featured in the drugstore hauls of some of our favourite USA beauty YouTubers and looked forward to being able to purchase them in the UK. Last week we finally managed to get our hands on them as the brand new displays started to appear in our local Boots and Superdrug stores.

The Infallible Sculpt range includes the following products:
Base:       Infallible Sculpt Base (in Light or Medium) 
Blush:     Infallible Blush Trio

We decided to give the base a miss as we already have far too many foundation products in our collection so we instead we went for the Contour Palette and the 3-in-1 Blush.


The Contour Palette (RRP £9.99) we have is the lighter of the two shades Light/Medium however it also comes in Medium/Dark. I used the Real Techniques Bold Metals Contour Brush to apply the product. The cream to powder formula is silky soft to the touch and the pigmentation in the contour shade is very good. I didn't have to use much product to get a very chisled look. The product blended seamlessly into the skin and the shade was very natural looking and not at all 'muddy'. The highlight shade was, again, very creamy and light on the skin. I tried to apply it with a brush but ended up using my fingers as I found it was easier for me to control the application. The highlight shade is very subtle but perfect for everyday wear as it is very natural and not shimmery.  
L-R: Infallible Sculpt Contouring Palette, Infallible Blush Trio.
Next for the 3-in-1 Blush (RRP £7.99). We have the shade Soft Sand and it also comes in two other shades, Nude Beige and Soft Rosy. In the pan the blush texture has a strange look but when swatched it has the same soft and creamy feel as the contour palette. I used the Zoeva Cream Blush Brush to apply the product and concentrated on the deeper shade in the pan. A light hand is definitely required as the pigmentation is insane! I then swirled around the lighter shades and applied slightly higher to the cheekbones to create an ombre style effect. The result was great and very easy to achieve.

In addition to the three new L'Oreal Sculpt releases mentioned above they also recently released the L'Oreal False Lash Sculpt Mascara (RRP 9.99) which we absolutely LOVE! See our review here.

We would definitely recommend trying the L'Oreal Sculpt range of products if you are looking for an affordable contour and highlight range. The standouts from the range for us are the Infallible Sculpt Cream to Powder Contouring Palette and the False Lash Sculpt Mascara. Both are great additions to the L'Oreal product range and are well worth investing in.

At the moment Superdrug have an offer where you can purchase the Base, Palette and Blush 'Bundle' for £15.99 and both Boots and Superdrug have 3 for 2 on all L'Oreal products. A great time to try out the new additions!

Have you used the new L'Oreal Sculpt Range yet? What are your thoughts?

  1. I'd really want to try out the contour palette but the contour shade looks a little too dark. I really love the look of that blush trio as well. The colours look amazing, you could almost use them as eyeshadow as well!

    1. The lighter of the two contour palettes (light/medium) is pretty good for our skin tone and we are both quite pale so we would recommend giving that a swatch!
