The L’Oreal Infallible Magic Essence Drops launched around 18 months ago, but I wasn’t intrigued by them at first as I felt like they looked like a massive gimmick. I read quite a few rave reviews, so I decided to give them a try as well as the Infallible Loose Setting Powder which is also blue to see if they were any good?
L’Oreal Infallible Magic Essence Drops
I’ve had really great results with the L’Oreal Infallible collection, and the L’Oreal Infallible Magic Essence Drops are £9.99 for 17.5ml. I have to admit, I didn’t expect the bottle to be so small. I assumed it’d be around the 30ml size like most primers, but it’s really small. You obviously need less product due to the viscous formula, but for £10 it’s a small bottle, but it does look luxe as it’s glass with a glass pipette dispenser.

The L’Oreal Infallible Magic Essence Drops are a blue-coloured liquid with a runny serum-like formula. I haven’t really noticed any brightening benefits from the ‘blue’ colour, and as soon as you begin to massage it into the skin, the blue tint does dissipate – which is a good thing, as you wouldn’t want a blue tinge to the skin.
I definitely agree that it doesn’t feel sticky, and it imparts hydration. It honestly feels like a serum, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and so smooth, making it a perfect base for makeup. Are the drops any different than a quality serum?
Not really. I always use serums religiously, and the L’Oreal Infallible Magic Essence Drops don’t offer enough hydration that I could forgo the serum, but it’s nice to have an extra boost of hydration and they absorb almost instantly too.
