i bought the new foundation Infinite Matt Make Up (where is the "e" after "matt"? what language is that?) from Catrice. it claims to be a long lasting (up to 18h), shine control but hydrating oil free foundation. the packaging doesn't say anything about a spf:
"Oil-free make-up with longlasting matt-effect. Hydrating and with light-reflecting pigments it creates an even, fresh complexion and leaves skin feeling soft."
it's 6.49€ for 30ml.
it comes in a frosted glass bottle with a matte black cap and pump, i find the packaging of higher value, considering the price range of the brand. the pump works very exactly.
i got the lightest shade, 010 light beige.
it's a light yellowish shade, no orange tones in it like in many other drugstore foundations. the initial shade would be around NC15 in MAC, but on me it darkens up within 5-10 minutes to a NC20 shade.
the smell is a clean perfumy scent and is strong and apparent, it bothers me quite a lot. the consistency is thick and creamy.

i apply it with the BeautyBlender sponge. it has a medium coverage, buildable to high. the shade can make you look a little bit greyish, i always need a blusher and maybe a bit of bronzer to bring back some life to my face with this foundation.
the finish is not dull and matte like the name implies to me, but rather velvety. in my opinion it feels quite heavy and thick on the skin, and the finish is somewhat sticky what i don't like. so i have to make sure to powder with this, preferably with a (mineral) powder that gives some glow to avoid caky-ness.
it lasts the whole day, but after about 5-6h it starts to loosen up the texture, transfers more and i get fairly oily. a touch up with powder would make it alright, but i'm not one who touches up. so i am not very thrilled about this foundation, i will test it mixed with other ones.
have you tried this? what do you think about it?
there is also a HD-foundation that i still intend to try despite of this fail here, but it still isn't delivered to my Catrice-dealer ;)

this is how the foundation looks worn, i only have under-eye concealer on other than it. excuse my funny expression, i had to look into bright daylight.
