staying power


stayed on

- Ulta User

i actually was really surprised how nice this covered and how well it stayed on

- Ulta User



i would recommend this to anyone that wants a medium to full coverage foundation that wants something mattifying yet natural, long lasting, and sweat proof

- Ulta User

hydration is key with this foundation, nonetheless, bc it's very mattifying to a powder like finish without over drying your face

- Ulta User


good quality

so i decided to save $30 this month and get cheaper foundation and the quality is amazing

- Ulta User

love buying good quality items

- Ulta User



super buildable i love it so far

- Ulta User

lightweight, doesn't cake, buildable

- Walgreens User



i love how lightweight it is and the salesperson matches my skin tone perfectly

- Ulta User

it goes on smooth and doesn't feel heavy

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

pros:- blends easily- medium coverage, buildable to full coverage- makes skin appear poreless- it isn´t 100% matte but more of a satin finish, which i love- good color selectioncons:- for someone looking for a completely matte finish, this is more satin- i would have appreciated a pump, a squeezable tube just makes it a bit harder to get the perfect amount of product

- Ulta User

it gives me full coverage while still being light weight and long lasting, it does not emphasize any texture or pores that i have on my skin and most importantly it keeps the foundation from separating on my nose as all other ones have

- Ulta User



thia foundation leaves my skin smooth, its very lightweight and i just love it

- Ulta User

i get compliments daily on the look of this makeup and how smooth my skin looks

- Walgreens User

water resistance

water resistant

this foundation for a drugstore foundation is really amazing, it has full coverage and its water proof, geez and it leaves my face flawless

- Walgreens User

its an awesome foundation and pairs well with smashbox waterproof studio concealer, and sets/bakes nicely with nyx blotting powder (these two products assist is keeping you matte)

- Ulta User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

it blends out super nice, controls shine, and oxidizes beautifully

- Ulta User

i own nars sheer glow, hourglass, muf photo finish, and by far this color (sun beige 106) is perfect for my olive complexion and best of all it doesn't oxidize

- Ulta User



since this is a matte i hydrate my skin before using and the finish is beautiful and stays in place all day

- Ulta User

i moisturize and prime before applying the foundation and the foundation does dry fast so you have to work fast and for me the best tool to apply it with is a damp beauty blender/real techniques sponge

- Ulta User


blends well

excellent value for a low cost brand, feels very high end, very easy to blend and i've received a lot of compliments on my makeup since i've been wearing it

- Ulta User

stays in until i was it off feels light on my face & looks natural didn't break out my sensitive skin blended seamlessly with my skin with little effort

- Ulta User



the first loreal i purchased is pro glow luminous

- Ulta User

my daughter and i both love this, we go back and forth between this and the loreal luminous true match and we are torn

- Ulta User



it settles into my smile lines (i'm in my 20s, they're not huge

- Lorealparisusa User

settles into wrinkles

- Ulta User



i have dry/combo skin and this leaves a lovely semi-matte finish without being drying

- Ulta User

medium coverage

this product is great is good for oily skin, it gives you a light to medium coverage but you can build it up to full coverage , and is long lasting

- Ulta User

it goes on so well with my stipple brush (my favorite way to really press in foundation for the whole day) and the coverage is between medium and full

Best Drugstore Foundation

If you have combination to oily skin, you will love this foundation! I have hyperpigmentation and an incredibly oily t-zone, and I find that this product does a very good job at covering my acne scars/blemishes/ etc. This foundation also has amazing coverage and leaves your skin looking MATTE and silky. A little goes a long way and if you want a fuller coverage, it is easily buildable. The only cons I do have with this foundation would be that it does have an odd smell, the color range isn't very diverse and it has a tendency to cling to dry patches. I personally mix two shades together to get my perfect shade, and I noticed a lot of the shades seem to be very yellow-toned or orangey. Besides that, the product is good as a whole and comparable to a lot of $40-$60 high-end foundations out there. Recommendations: *always apply a GOOD primer before applying this because the consistency is semi-liquidy and will settle into fine lines and pores * A damp beauty blender works BEAUTIFULLY with this foundation ( I recommend Beauty Blender brand sponge or Real Technique) *SET THE DANG FOUNDATION! This product works best when it's set with a good quality powder, also sprits a setting spray so it doesn't look cakey * I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS FOR DRY SKIN. If you do have dry skin and want to buy this because you like matte foundation: MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE. This foundation will cling onto your dry patches like a baby onto a nipple.

Absolute Garbage

I have very oily skin, large pores and some acne scarring. My goal is mattifying, full coverage makeup that makes pores less noticeable. My expectations (as a makeup artist) are realistic: I will always be oily, I will always have large pores and scarring takes a long time to heal and color correctors to properly camoflague, but I want to minimize the oil and make the pores appear smaller and be able to cover any scarring. That being said, high end makeup works best, I've always felt that way and I'm confident that drugstore products will never come close. Regardless, every few years I buy full coverage, matte drugstore foundations in hopes of finding something more moderately priced (I currently wear Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation and MAC Pro Longwear Concealer). This foundation is garbage. It's not mattifying, it's not even satin matte or demi matte. It literally slipped off my skin within 2 hours after being set with powder. I tried applying with brushes, sponges, beauty blenders, and my fingers and they all rendered the same results: a slippery, oily finish that emphasized my pores. The coverage is medium and while it's buildable, it's only buildable if you're looking for the betty crocker finish. Wouldn't recommend to anyone, wouldn't keep in my kit as a last resort alternative and honestly if a client insisted on me applying this foundation, I'd refer her to another artist. Less

What is this sorcery?

Okay, I am absolutely blown out of the water with this foundation. When it first came out a few years ago, I watched reviews on YouTube, but was never too impressed. Only women with flawless skin and ultra-filtered camera lenses were raving about it, while some others who actually had issues to cover (amazing people like Angie from Hot and Flashy) said it looked super heavy, caked on, and accentuated texture big time. Now, everyone's skin in different, but I had to write this review to let people know to please try it! It is one of the best foundations ever. Everything L'Oréal claims is what you can expect: natural medium coverage, flawless matte finish, and this STAYS PUT without drying. I have combo skin, and in my dry areas this never made me look like the Sahara Desert or anything. I think a lot of people make the mistake of not using the right skincare underneath and applying this with a brush, or that's just my opinion. With the right skincare, a nice beauty blender, and a good setting spray (Morphe's new one is amazing), I think you'll fall in love, I really do. And also, I'm into the dewy-skin look, yet I still swear by this. It's so easy to add glow to your skin, but hard to find products that stand the test of time and last. One more note, I heard some people say this broke them out, but I think that's likely due to them not removing it 100%. This formula is pretty bare bones and simple, so I highly doubt it was this product that caused problems (and this is coming from someone who breaks out from everything).Sorry for the super long review! I can just go on and on with this one. Less

Wow! What a pleasant surprise! After some recent financial hardships, I'm always on the hunt for an affordable drugstore alternative to the prestige brands. One of the biggest trends in Spring 2015 Beauty is semi (or demi) matte foundations. These products will give you a subtle finish that is both shine free and natural, with a "healthy" glow not a faux shimmery shine. I have to say, this product TOTALLY fits the bill!The claims on the packaging are three-fold: demi-matte finish, 24 hr wear & air light texture. Finally a foundation that lives up to its claims! I use a semi-luminous primer, then dab a bit of this foundation on the back of my hand and apply in circular buffing motions with a kabuki brush. The feel is so light it's barely there. The application is easy and it dries VERY quickly. My skin is a little dry this winter so I had to blend with my finger a bit more around my nose and between my brows. The color is fantastic! I am very pale but since using Jergens Natural Glow for Face I have a bit more color. Glancing at the shades in the store, I noticed all but one had neutral or yellow undertones. As we know this is ideal for getting the best match to our skin. I applied this at 7:30am. After a full day conference and even an hour long nap, this foundation stayed put! This is truly my all time favorite drugstore foundation. With a little concealer for my dark circles, blush and strategic highlighting, my face had never looked better! It's sooo easy too. Great for busy women like me.I believe this foundation will work for a variety of skin tones and textures (especially oily skin that needs mattifying and long wear). Remember matte doesn't mean drab or lifeless as I previously thought. It's like your natural skin just evened and enhanced. Isn't that what we all want from a foundation? Remember this product has no SPF so make sure to wear a lotion that does. 5/5*, highly recommended especially for beauty fanatics like me! Less

perfect foundation

this foundation is truly amazing! I'm a teenager with oily, acne prone skin and this works miracles for my complexion, but it probably wouldn't work well for mature or aged skin. I struggle with redness, spots, and pore size. this foundation masks it all wonderfully. it's nicely pigmented to cover redness and acne, though I often spot conceal as well. it also does a great job minimizing my pores. however, my favorite feature of this product by far is the finish. it has an awesome silky smooth finish that is more natural looking than most other foundations. in addition, it's Demi-matte so it controls your shine without making you look like a pancake. although I have certainly not worn it for a continuous 24 hours, I can still say that this foundation has brilliant lasting power. I wake up around 6 and take off my makeup around 9 so this lasts me a full 15 hours! it's so good at controlling shine that I don't even use powder anymore. I always used to have to powder my foundation and even blot throughout the day, but this foundation seems to set by itself and keeps me matte, even after working out! I would say you could achieve anywhere from a medium to very full coverage with this product. I usually apply it with a damp beauty blender or regular white, triangular makeup sponge. just recently I finished off my first tube of this stuff and for some reason decided to try the revlon colorstay foundation for oily skin. HUGE MISTAKE! I looked like an oil slick the whole day and suffered major transferring onto my hands and clothing, even after setting the foundation generously.thankfully, I repurchased loreal infallible and am very happy. finally, after that very long rant, all I can say is, BUY THIS PRODUCT! Less

Okay so I haven’t really had a foundation I really loved since high school. The cover girl clean whipped cream was the only thing that ever checked all of my boxes. Any recommendations? 1. Easy to blend into skin even with just fingers 2. Very light feel but good coverage ( I have oily acne prone skin so this tends to be the hardest one ) 3. Matte finish that stays all day (with powder is fine)

I’m looking for a good foundation. I have dry skin that gets oilier as the day goes on. I don’t wear makeup during the week so it’s mostly just for going out on the weekend. I don’t mind spending a little more since it lasts me longer. I’m using Kat Von D foundation right now, but it doesn’t leave a smooth and poreless matte finish like I’m looking for and ends up looking kind of cakey. Desperately need recommendations!

Hey guys ! So I’m sure this is a common question , but seriously ...Why is foundation so difficult?? I have tried several including L’Oréal true match, fit me matte , fit me dewy, too face peach comfort matte, Fenty, and face tape . I currently use Fit me Dewy 115 , and like it more than any expensive foundation I’ve tried . My biggest issue is that foundations look yellow on my light/cool skin and fit me dewy is the only one that doesn’t . Unfortunately it doesn’t last all day for me and even though I touch up with powder , it tends to look funky on my T zone . Help ?💖
