Maybelline Dream Velvet vs L'oréal Infallible

I've been testing these two foundations, the Dream Velvet foundation by Maybelline in the shade Ivory and the Infallible Pro Matte foundation by L'oréal in the shade Natural Rose, for a while now so that it's time for a quick review. I have to say one is definitely a hit for me, the other one a miss ☺
Both shades fit me well (if I blend them properly). Ivory is a little lighter than Natural Rose and the lighter the foundation, the better it fits to my skin tone. By the way, my skin is combination.


1. The foundation that's a Hit
I'll be definitely repurchasing the Dream Velvet foundation. I'd say the coverage is medium to light with a natural and glowy finish that I love. The moussy texture makes it so easy to blend with your damp Beauty Blender. I wouldn't recommend this foundation to anyone that has really oily skin, as the finish is dewy, or wants a lot of coverage. Also the lasting-power isn't overwhelming. But for an everyday makeup look  it's perfect!

2. The foundation that's a Miss
I know people are raving about this foundation on YouTube or blogs for so long, but for me the Infallible Pro Matte foundation just isn't working. No matter which technique I use, brushes, sponges or fingers - the result is cakey and the foundation doesn't blend. Also, the finish is too matte and heavy for me, I feel like it even accentuates fine lines. I won't repurchase.
Do you have these foundations at home? What do you think?
