Review for: Natural Buff more...
This is suppose to be a dupe for Estée Lauder doublewear. Estee Lauder double wear is a strong favorite of mine. I also love IT cosmetics regular B.B. cc cream and the new Matte Formula.
I have used the CC cream by IT Cosmetics in Medium for years now. I have a little redness, sun spots, get a little oily in my t-zone. But I have regular known combination skin. Consequently, I've had a really hard time finding the right foundation that covers the redness/dark spots, combats the oiliness, and doesn't cause me to break out. ( in the hot humid months) I have been hearing the hype over the Infallible Pro Matte foundation for some time now and decided to take a chance and try it. I'm currently using Natural Buff 103 and even though it looked orangey out of the tube, it blended very nicely into my skin. I use a damp cosmetics sponge from Real Techniques to apply it and I'm careful not to over apply so it doesn't get cakey which is no different than any foundation. I sometimes use my Pore Fessional from Benefit underneath but I don't necessarily see a significant difference. I am surprised I don't notice any significant oxidization with this stuff so my makeup still looks the same at the end of the day. I do need to use a face blotting paper after around 5-6 hours but I don't need to add any powder. I'm good for another 3-4 hours after this. I do keep this away from my under eye area since it seems to accentuate my fine lines a bit. I've tried to use the Infallible Pro - Matte powder in Nude Beige to set this foundation but it was too light for me. I'm ordering the next color up and hopefully this will work. I currently use Laura Mercier loose powder to set. I don't particularly like feeling a ton of makeup on my skin. I find this stuff actually covers more of my redness and dark spots than my IT CC cream ( regular) and Ive noticed I use a lot less concealer which also keeps my face from looking cakey. I really like this foundation. I especially like the price.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
I have combination skin to an extremity on both ends of the spectrum: oiliness with dry patches in the same areas. On top of that, I started a new job where I sweat like crazy, which makes my typical day-to-day foundation practically melt off. Because my favorite foundation is nearly $40, I didn’t want to waste it for work. That’s where the L’Oreal Pro-Matte foundation comes in.

Upon initial application, I wasn’t exactly impressed. It looked and felt like any other drugstore foundation I owned. It wasn’t until I looked at my makeup in the car at the end of my shift (in natural light) when I was in shock. My foundation had not separated, and though I had the slightest bit of oil around my t-zone, this foundation withstood my time at work. As an added bonus, this foundation truly blurred my pores.

There are a few things I should mention that I did not love about this foundation. The shade range is not the best, and I have to mix a white foundation into my shade in order to make it fit my skin tone (but I am used to doing this). While this foundation does an excellent job at blending the looks of pores, it is not good at smoothing over imperfections. Any breakouts I had were not covered by this foundation, and I had to pile on the concealer.

Overall, this is an excellent day-to-day foundation at a great price point.

Review for: Natural Beige more...
This was......ok?  Another product with rave reviews that I had to try.  This product was a little weird to me because the first time I put it on at my house I thought it matched perfectly, my mom thought so too.  The next day, I put it on at my boyfriends house and man, it was way too orangey for me.  So I figured it was the lighting.  But then the next day I put it on at my house again and it looked orangey again!  I have no idea what was going on with that.  Maybe it was just in my head!

Other than that, this was alright and had about a medium coverage.  It blended well and felt nice.  I worked outside for over nine hours on one of the days I wore this and I will say this stayed in place really well for sweating in the 90 degree heat!  Obviously I got oily and sweaty this day, who wouldn't!  So I tried this the next day when I was going to be in the air conditioning, just to see if I would still get oily.  I did.  It didn't make me any less oily than normal like I was hoping it would, but at least it didn't make me any more oily.

In short, holds up well, but I still had oil breakthrough.

This is my favorite Foundation that I've used in quite some time I use the shade 102 shell beige and I find that it matches my skin tone very nicely the Demi matte finish claim is true it does keep my skin pretty mat for most of the day which is wonderful considering I have very oily skin I do find by the end of my work day which is sometimes 9 to 10 hours that it doesn't look quite as wonderful as it did when I first applied it which is to be expected however it does claim that has 24 hour foundation so I think it should look a little better than it does with a powder however it does last long enough for me to make it through the day without looking too horrible and I would rather use this liquid foundation and have it look a little not so wonderful at the end of the day then just to use a straight up powder foundation so I definitely would recommend it it's basically the only foundation I've been using in 2018

While I did not explore the 24 hour wear test as that is simply wayyy to long for anyone to be wearing a foundation, I did however wear this foundation for at least 8 - 10 hours. I have oily-combination skin that is quite relentless on the oil production. I am constantly blotting and resetting my powder throughout the day - so when I say I was shocked by the lack of a need to do either of those things, I truly mean it. Around the 5 hour mark I did have a slight glow to my complexion but nothing compared to how my skin usually looks around this time. I would also like to note, I am a glasses wearer so the pads of my glasses did leave an imprint on the sides of my nose, but majority of foundations I wear do tend to rub off first in that area. I didn't find it to smudge off completely though, which is a huge plus! Honestly, this foundation lasted well into the 8th to 10th hour of wear time and probably could have lasted even longer! Around the 10th hour of wear, the foundation started to break up and separate a little around the areas I had touched throughout the day, especially around my nose! The foundation also began settling into my pores around my cheek and forehead area and also started to wear off around my chin area too. However, other than my nose and chin, the foundation held together nicely! My bronzer, blush, and highlight was still visible and wasn't patchy at all! Overall, I highly recommend this foundation!

Review for: Classic Tan, Fresh Beige, Sun Beige, Soft Sable more...
When I saw the advertisement for the Infallible Pro-Matte, I decided to try it. I AM IN LOVE! It stays on so much longer, doesn't slide off when I get out in the heat or become splotchy around the time of the day when the oiliness usually appears, because it controls and keeps down the oil. ALSO, if I get caught in the rain, the water doesn't wash it away...as if this foundation is semi-waterproof !!!!!! I have even slept in full makeup (shame on me, I know) and when I woke up, my make up looked just as it did when I put it on the night before! I have never worn a liquid foundation that has achieved every benefit I was looking for and wanting in a foundation. I originally bought the natural beige 105 and it was a little too dark for my skin tone so I bought the shell beige 102 . The 102 blends in and matches flawlessly, and if I want a little more color ( like a natural bronzer with out the shimmer), I'll add a few drops of the 105 to the 102 and voila! Still blends in and matches seamlessly and picture ready! I even still use my Loreal mineral powder foundation as a finishing powder to "set" my make up and touch up throughout the long days, yet most the time, I do not even need to powder my face afterwards because this foundation stays on and stays true to how it looks after first applying it in the mornings. Without a doubt it lives up to it's advertisement. Since it is a Demi-matte, I appreciate it even more. Years of dealing with the embarrassment of combo-skin, my face always having some kind of sheen to it, I am greatful to have found a foundation that delivers that, yet doesn't make my face look dry like baked clay around the dryer parts around my face. It's as if this makup is perfectly pH-balanced.

Review for: Natural Beige, Classic Ivory more...
This used to be my go to foundation until the drugstore came out with better options. I've purchased so many throughout the years that I can't even count how much I've spent.

Pro's: Really lasts all day
Controls oils better than other foundations
Doesn't break up
Doesn't break me out
Actually sticks to my nose unlike most foundations
Good coverage

Cons: the light shades run too pink
On the more expensive side of drugstore foundations
Not good for dry patches


Overall if you have oily skin with no dry patches this is a winner. It definitely lasts all day long and stays matte. I find that it also smooths over my skin really well and helps me look poreless, but the light shade looks terrible on my skin as it is super pink, so I always had to mix it with a darker shade with more yellow undertones. I found myself always having to stock up on 2 at once just for mixing and that was getting too expensive for me. Luckily the drugstore came out with more affordable/ better options for me. I still do recommend it though if you can find your perfect shade.

Review for: Natural Buff more...
This is my favorite foundation from the drugstore, hands down. First of all, the tube lasts forever. I bought my first tube about a year ago, and I am just now about to run out. It is so travel friendly, too, since it is in a plastic tube, and I appreciate the squeezy tube applicator as well since it allows you to get out every bit of product. I hate those foundations that come in a bottle without a pump because I have to dump it out on my hand or on my beauty blender, and I'm always scared to travel with it in the event that the glass breaks and foundation gets everywhere. So this one is perfect. 
I have oily skin with pretty large pores and quite a bit of acne and acne scars. This foundation covers everything! It is medium to full coverage, but I find that I only need one layer of this foundation to cover everything. I absolutely love the finish it gives, demi-matte which is matte but with a little bit of natural finish so you don't look too dull and flat. I find that this foundation lasts all day, controls my oils, and does not look cakey. I'm still trying to find my perfect shade in this, as the one I got is a little too warm toned and dark for my skin tone. I still used the whole tube of it, which is saying a lot if it's my wrong shade! I just love the finish and coverage it gives that I don't mind putting a little bronzer on my neck to make it blend. I will continue to repurchase this foundation over and over again.

Review for: Natural Buff more...
One of the best drugstore foundation I have ever used! With a shimmer or matte primer, this foundation has the power to give you a flawless look without looking cakey (for me I used a sponge to apply the foundation). I have combination skin and this doesn't break apart (unless prolong wear like 12+ hrs) during the summer and the winter time. I would say that you do have to match the perfect setting powder with it. I have used IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout powder, and it oxidized my skin and broke apart the foundation very quickly throughout the day. But when I used the NYX HD Studio Finishing Powder, it lasted all day until I had to clean my face at night. Definitely recommend this product to anyone with oily skin and on a budget!

Review for: Natural Buff more...
I’m of the unpopular opinion of not really liking this product. It definitely does everything it claims it does, it just isn’t for me. I didn’t have any oil issues with this foundation. My skin was definitely matte all day. My issues were mainly the color and this product’s interaction with my other face products. I hate the packaging, I prefer a pump to a squeeze tube like this. This packaging makes it hard to tell how much product you are actually squirting out and it makes it even harder with the black labeling to match your shade. I have pretty neutral to olive undertones, I tried 2 different shades and couldn’t come close to the right color for me. It also oxidized really badly and was somewhat hard to blend. This product also broke up really badly under my concealer. My undereyes and nose looked terrible and I know it’s not the concealer which I have used for years and never had issues with any foundation. I won’t be buying this again.
