Review for: Classic Ivory
I really wanted to love this foundation but I just can't. It dries really fast when applying so you have to blend it out quick, and while it does look pretty darn good for a drugstore product, I found it just too drying for my skin which led to alot of flaking or caking around my nose and forehead. I tried using a dewy setting spray over it all but the finish just wasn't nice enough.

In the end, I ended up mixing this and the Pro-Glow together, they seemed to balance themselves out pretty well but for all the hassle, I don't think I'll be buying them again.

Absolute favorite foundation, i've bought it over and over again probably 6 or 7 times! The only downer is it does cling to dry patches but I can use it with or without primer! It has  a really great matte finish, especially for my oily skin. I would recommend it to anyone!

Review for: Classic Ivory
I have combo skin, and I tend to gravitate toward matte foundations so I don't look too oily. I had seen good reviews for this and decided to give it a shot. I used my Smashbox Photo Finish underneath each time I tried this. This foundation make me look so incredibly cakey. I tried to apply with a beauty blender, a brush, and a sponge. It didn't make any difference. I wasn't using a ton of product either. It also stuck to any dry patch. Coverage wise, this stuff is great. It will cover anything. I just think the product itself is a little bit too thick and drying.

Review for: Golden Beige
OK this is going to sound gross but I have fallen asleep wearing this foundation before and it still held up pretty great. It doesn't get too oily on the skin. It is pretty matte. I was able to get a great shade match

My favorite foundation! The coverage is very great and very matte. It gives you a great airbrushed look and really hides everything. I love this foundation because it is truly 24 hours. You can put it on, go to the club for four hours and still walk out with it looking fresh. however, l’oréal does test on animals. Worst part.

Review for: Fresh Beige
I have been using this product for a couple of years now, I feel like I finally found a good over the counter full coverage you foundation that doesn't break my budget.
It applies real smooth and the finish is perfect. [product:l'oréal-paris-infallible-pro-matte-foundation]

As far as the consistency of the formula and coverage I have no complaints. My only issue with this foundation is the color range. 108 which happens to be as close as I could get to my skin tone was too yellow. I wish they had a broader selection, specifically more neutral tones.

I love this matt foundation it lasts up to 24 hours and I have mines in the shade 108 caramel beige and this so far is the only foundation I found that matched my complexion without me have to mix 2 of them together which was a 💯 in my book.It gives you full coverage and it is buildable if you ladies know what I mean

I was going threw my old makeup and I came across this foundation it's to light for me right now but I noticed it is really drying and I already have dry skin so it wasn't my favorite. But the other day I was trying out Halloween looks and I needed to make my skin look lighter so I put this on and it was perfect. But personally I prefer the Maybelline Fit Me® Matte + Poreless Foundation it go's on beautifully. You can purchase both at walmart the loreal foundation is $10.97 and the Maybelline foundation is $5.95. Thank you for reading and have a good day.

This has to be one of the best foundations I have ever used. I need this and made sure I brought a few so I wouldn’t run out.
