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

    This foundation is beyond amazing. I've tried practically every drug store brand foundation until I came across several great reviews on this one. What a game changer!!! I have really rosy checks and get flushed easily. This stuff covers all of that up so smoothly! I have combination skin, some days I wake up dry and other days I wake up oily. No matter the day, this stuff will work with me. GIVE IT A TRY

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

    I bought the shade Classic Ivory 101. Though this is the lightest shade, it is far from matching my skin tone. It has a really pink undertone that I do not think would match most fair skin tones. In addition, I learned that very matte foundations do not work well with my combination dry and oily skin. IT really clings to my dry patches. Thus, I personally would not purchase it again, but I think it's worth a try if you find a good match for your skin tone and you do not have dry skin.

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

    I picked out the lightest shade thinking it would look decent on my normal skin. This product is super drying, plus has a really really orange shift when oxidized. I would suggest going down a shade then what you think.

            I faithfully buy Smashbox 15 hour studio wear but needed a darker shade since I was tanning for a vacation and didn't feel like spending the money on something I'd only use a couple times so I bought this. It is as good if not better than the Smashbox (and I'm a name brand junkie!) it keeps my face matte all day even in the humid heat and doesn't crease in my smile lines like the Smashbox does. It's a little heavy but nothing that bothers me, great product for such a great price!!

              So I used this foundation with my porefesional primer and made me look cakey which is weird because I don't think it's the primer since I've used the same primer with three other foundations and didn't make me look cakey, and it didn't really keep me matte I have extremely oily skin and it only kept me matte for about 3 hours :( but it blends well and they have good color selections.
