I’m still always trying out new foundations, but from what I have tried to this date this is hands down my favorite drugstore foundation! It is matte! The coverage is so nice and I can easily wear this with no touch ups for a good 8 hour period. This claims 24 hours and although it doesn’t hold up that well on me, the 8 hours is still great with that drugstore price! L'Oréal Paris Infallible® Pro-Matte Foundation

On my incredibly oily skin, this foundation actually wears quite well. Upon first application, it can look a bit heavy, but I find as it warms up to the skin, it looks more natural and a little less powdery. I do not find it lasts all day, but it wears incredibly well: it does not separate with my oil, rather, it just looks dewier and radiant. It has nice medium coverage, so I typically use a spot concealer with this one. Overall, I recommend this one!

The only good thing about this foundation is that it will stay on throughout anything! And it will keep looking as fresh as when you first applied it throughout the day or night. The reason I’m giving it 3 stars is because it dries super fast and since it dries faster than the average foundation if you put any cream contour or concealer on top of it it will completely come off, leaving your foundation patchy. Other than that it’s a great foundation.

Love thos product! I cant afford anything other than drug store. Amd this doesnt let me down. If you apply too much ot can definitely get cakey, but thats easily avoidable. It is very matte. If tou have dry skin stay away! I have never experienced any uneven wear. I haven't experienced any wear in all honesty. it sets beautifully for me. It has good coverage. Medium to full. I would never say this is buildable. Recommendable product for sure.

The coverage of this foundation is amazing for being a drug store foundation. Since this foundation is a matte foundation I don't think the ones with dry skin will like this because it will cling to your dry patches. I have combination skin and it clung to my dry patches. If you have oily skin you would like this. It didn't keep my face matte all day, but it did a pretty decent job of keeping most of my oil at bay throughout the day.

Definitely a quality drugstore foundation, though it seems to have gone up in price a lot over the last year or so. This truly is a matte foundation, which I like a lot, but it was a fine line between matte and cakey during application. Definitely best for oily/combination skins.

I would also like to see more color options, as the two lighter ones were so drastically different in shades, and ultimately neither matched my skin tone.

Review for: Natural Beige, Natural Buff, Classic Ivory more...
I have oily, red, and fair skin so it was long struggle with me finding makeup that worked for. I was often settling for something that worked “just” well enough, until I found this. I’ve been using this foundation for a few years now and LOVE it. I feel so confident when wearing it because it is full coverage, but lightweight so my skin looks naturally flawless like I’m not wearing makeup at all. I’ve used different shades depending on how tan I am at the time of the year and they all have flawlessly blended into my skin so well. The biggest factor that has made me fall in love with this product is how well it works for my oily acne prone skin; gone are the days of mid day blotting of powdering I stay matte looking all day! Definitely recommend this product, not to mention you can’t be the price! This foundation is definitely comparable to high end brands for less than half the price!

I use this product on every single client I have. I own every color in both the Matte and Glow lines. I mix them and can create a perfect shade for any skin tone. The foundation lasts all day, and creates a perfect base to enhance features for everyone. I recommend this product to everyone, and always repurchase when I run out of a shade. You can apply this foundation with a brush or a makeup sponge. The coverage is unparalleled.

Review for: Classic Ivory more...
This has to be hands down the best drug store foundation I've ever used. I think I would put it second only to the wet n wild photofocus foundation. I have dry, sensitive skin. The foundation didn't cling to my dry patches, and it did not irritate my skin. It also doesn't feel heavy on the skin so you won't feel like you have cake face all day. I set it down with a small amount of powder but you really don't have to. The only complaint I have is with the color range, this foundation has been out for awhile and is very popular, I would really expect the company to have expanded the shade range by now. You can apply it with a sponge or a brush. I like blending it out with a brush for full coverage and then dabbing over it with a sponge to smooth it out. If you had $10 and could only buy one, I would recommend this one. Plus if you go to Rite Aid or CVS they always have sales.

This foundation is another favorite of mine! You can purchase it at any local drug store. I bought mine from the local Walmart near by. It covers well, but I feel like it looked better on my friends than it did me. I have heard from multiple famous youtubers that this is the best foundation bought in drug stores.
