      I saw youtube reviews of this product comparing it to high end products. I did not like it at all! Had to return it. It didnt go on evenly and it looked like I had a mask on. Maybe the dewy finish would be better.

          I used this product with an oval brush and on a separate occasion I used my real techniques brush. I used primer and moisturizer and it was patchy. From a distance it seems flawless, but up close it emphasizes pores, dry patches and acne.

            This foundation...it is all around amazing! I can't believe how pretty my skin looks when I wear it. Admittedly, I do have pretty nice skin except for some acne scarring on my cheeks. This foundation covers my scars so well, and from a ~3 foot distance, you can't tell I have any scars (no foundation is ever going to perfectly conceal until they fade a little more). But the infallible pro-matte makes my entire face look so smooth, and it feels amazing. It is so light, but covers exceptionally well, and does not transfer (I did do a light dusting of NYX finishing powder after applying!). Dare I say, it is the best foundation I have ever used - better than Estee Lauder, MAC, Merle Norman, Mary Kay, Makeup For Ever, Clinique. I also think it has better coverage and a better look overall than the Infallible Total Cover if you're considering that one (bought both and returned the total cover). For reference, I bought natural buff and I'm quite fair, but I really like the match - gives me a nice glow rather than looking pasty. I will absolutely re-purchase. Sooo impressed!

              After hearing all of the rave reviews about this foundation on this site as well as beauty bloggers, I decided to give it a try. I agonized over the decision for some time, as when it comes to foundation, I am a high end gal. The first thing I noticed is that it was super thick and really didn't blend very well.Especially around my eye area. there was a lot of settling into my fine lines. Its possible the bottle I purchased was old or nearing expiration. Its okay for a back-up,but I wouldn't use it as my go-to. I think it would work well mixed with something else.

              Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation:

              I have heard so much about this and it's about $25 cheaper than my regular foundation so I decided to give it a try. I usually wear Estee Lauder Double Wear. I have an oily T zone so that usually keeps me in check.
              This foundation did not last longer than a few hours before I started to get greasy. It also irritates my skin pretty badly. The good thing about it is that it does cover well for a drugstore foundation and the color was good for my skin. I would not buy again though. I'm going to invest in higher end foundation for sure.

              Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation:

              WOW. I had heard about this product before, but wasn't convinced to try it until I watched a buzzfeed video that showcased it being worn all day. I have extremely oily skin. I mean EXTREMELY oily. The world could probably drill on my face and there'd still be some to spare. Normally, by 10a I am in need to blot my face, by lunch I need to re-powder. And even then, by the end of the day I always itch to wash my face because my makeup feels weighed down. With this product, I haven't been needing to blot until about 3p, don't need to re-powder, and don't feel weighed down by the end of the day. My only con is that I feel like I'm using slightly more product to maintain the coverage I was getting from my previous foundation. Regardless, I highly recommend for anyone with oily skin.

                    Oily skin/Combo Skin

                    I am looking for a drugstore foundation that will work for my combo skin. I get oily in my t-zone but my t-zone can also look very cakey at times especially after a couple of hours of wearing foundation. I don't want that to happen

                    The foundations I am looking at:
                    NYX total drops
                    loreal infallabile
                    maybelline fit me and poreless

                    I heard any of these could work for my skin but im not sure

                    Hi, I wear Urban Decay All Nighter in 2.5 and I was wondering which shade of the Pro-Matte Foundation would work for me? I don't want a yellow undertone. Thanks!

                      Hi Shiree19! It's challenging to compare brands but based on what we see on their website, it looks like the closest shade will be Natural Buff 103. We have a great tool on the webpage for this product called CLICK HERE TO FIND YOUR PERFECT SHADE!. This Shade Finder will help take the guesswork out of finding your perfect shade.
