Most Helpful Positive Review AMAZING Foundation!
I went on a mission to find my perfect foundation, or near as I could get, and this foundation ended that journey. I struggled to find a foundation that wouldn't grab onto my dry patches, gives medium/full coverage, and is truly fair and warm toned, and this foundation does it all! It gives my skin a healthy glow yet stays ALL day, as long as I don't touch my face. I bought True Beige, which has true a warm undertone (THANK YOU), and Porcelain which is more neutral. The only minor complaint I have is that it does sink into my smile lines a little, but I can deal with that?every foundation does that. This foundation is my ultimate favorite. It's nearly perfect, and I'm so, SO happy!
Most Helpful Critical Review It smells like it's been infused with perfume...
I've been using this foundation for about two months now and initially thought I loved it, however, as time has gone on I've realized that it's just okay compared to others. It has an extremely strong fragrance that seems really unnecessary and irritating to not only the skin but your eyes. I'd avoid this foundation if you have sensitive skin. I switched from my old foundation to this in hopes of a more natural look but it's super liquidy and settles into any tiny line on your face (even minimal smile lines) as it dries requiring you to blend it multiple times as you're finishing the rest of your makeup. You absolutely have to use a setting powder if you have oily or combo skin or it will come right off after a couple hours of wear, the 24-hour wear is definitely exaggerated, mine looks pretty rough after an 8-hour work day. It's definitely light weight in the sense that you will need to layer if you're looking for a full coverage foundation, I apply mine with a damp beauty blender and get the medium coverage I'm looking for. I'll continue using mine as a backup but have since switched back to my usual.

i have to admit.. the foundation looks good on the face BUT it feels terrible on me. it feels wet, no-matter how much I set it with powder and setting spray. It smears and TRANSFERS!!! I lightly touch my face, and my finger is covered with foundation. it also feels heavy due to not setting and feeling wet on my face.

I selected the color that I know was right for my skin tone but it was a little too orange and it showed. It looked okay on some areas of my face but on others looked horrible, cakey, and wouldn't blend with my skin no matter how much I tried. It also looked really bad under my eyes it kept creasing even though I would fix it over and over again. It's ok for pores, nothing special but not the worst. Just didn't work for me and I was really disappointed cause it had great reviews
Britt from Harrisburg, PA
This is one of the best foundations I've used, regardless of price. The shade match is *chef's kiss* and it's long lasting. I prefer to apply with a sponge which gives good, medium coverage.
it was a decent foundation.
Lana from west covina
It's been a struggle for me to find a good foundation and this one is not the one for me. I have a problem with my foundation separating and creasing and not being a great match and from just my experience, this foundation did both. I think this brand would benefit from having more shades, but with price, I can't really complain and the product did give great medium coverage. I did find another foundation that is in the same shade range is the Colourpop Pretty Fresh and that one seemed to work well for me and my dry skin. If this product works for you, congrats and keep using it, but for me, I have to keep looking.
Flawless finish comparable to high end makeup
Saranikki from Tulsa
Beautiful finish doesn't exaggerate pores
Love love it .. the best foundation ever !
Odona from Tampa, Florida
First time using it and i was amazed and on how it looks on my face .. perfect match on my skin tone.
What the drugstore foundation?!?!
Dramamama from Texas
As a makeup obsessed gal, I have tried all the high end foundations. Yes. All of them. Who would've thought this one would be my absolute favorite? It literally looks like skin- no creases, lines, not just sitting on my skin. The coverage is amazing- it covers my rosacea beautifully. LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!
Frances from Texas
Honestly its one of the worst foundations ive tried it feels heavy, and it clings to any dry spots you have, i couldnt put it anywhere around my eyes, it was really irritating to my eyes.
best full coverage
nicolec from los angeles
i bought this impulsively and have fallen in love with it. its matte and full coverage. never broken out with or had any issues whatsoever. i always get compliments on my base every time i have this on
I kind of miss it now that I gave it away
Sally Jolene holt from hillbilly ca
I gave this foundation away too soon because I was suckered out of it from my niece. I loved the finish and it held up nicely but not enough for all day standards. it concerned me because the fragrance was absolutely noticeable and I contributed that to the high content of alcohol the formula has in it. that alarmed me because I noticed it sank into my dry skin and accentuated my fine lines. But I regret not playing around with it more to try different applications and techniques. I was always pleased after initial application but it didn't have longevity that it claimed. that could be more on me than on the formula. still the fragrance made me leery. I don't have allergies to fragrances thus far but I don't want to develop one either.
my HOLY GRAIL
JJ from South Carolina
I have very dry skin. I have tried the NARS foundation, the born this way foundation, maybelline ones, cover girl ones, everything under the sun and every time it emphasizes my pores and spots and ALWAYS rubs off. but this... this one. WOW. This one genuinely stays on for SO LONG without rubbing off. it's not slidey or sticky, it doesn't crease, and it blends right into my skin. I always mix a tiny bit of the Glossier skin tint in it however, because it's a tiny bit too matte for my liking. I have absolutely no complaints with this foundation. I did my search for the perfect foundation and this one it it.
Tess from PA
It makes you look like you have a filter on your face. Makes you look flawless but a natural look!! I'm definitely stocking up on these. I 100% recommend
not the best
MonicaS from long beach
I like foundations that don't need skin prep or primer and can be put on in a few seconds. This foundation was NOT the case. I put it on the way I put on other foundations like my Flesh stick foundation and too faced dew you foundation and every dry spot was extremely emphasized and I realized how much texture I have. This foundation requires a heavy duty moisturizer AND heavy duty primer if you want it to work or else it looks horrible!!!!
I would buy this again
KK from North Carolina
I really love this foundation. It feels light and covers better than other foundations I have used.
Lightweight Long Wear Does Not Crease
Christina from MO
I love this foundation! I've been on the lookout for a good lightweight medium coverage natural finish foundation that's reasonably priced for a long time. This is the one! I wore it for over 6 hours and I pretty much couldn't even tell I was wearing any makeup it was so lightweight. I got shade 415 which I believe is described as a neutral-pink tone, and I definitely think it's more yellow toned. This ended up working for me though because I guess I'm more yellow toned than I thought I was! (Its hard to pick foundation online lol) it does oxidize darker slightly so keep that in mind when picking your shade.
I will buy this product again when I run out
Ara from Coral Springs
Foundation. Looks great and lasts all day
Great drugstore foundation!
Tyann from Kansas City
My skin feels so natural with the finish of this foundation. Ive tried a ton of high end foundations, and I've truly enjoyed this one! And I feel like I got a great color match on my first try. I've been using for about a month now. I am impressed with how well it holds up and for how long, even with my workouts!
One con I do have:
Still not even sure what happened but when I was traveling the bottle opened up and got ALL OVER everything in my makeup bag which was an absolute nightmare. I had never even opened up the bottle???? So not sure what happened. Hoping it was a one time thing, because I do not want to relive cleaning all my products and bag again.
Sammyiam from Reedley, CA
I absolutely am in love with this foundation. I personally was going to buy a professional brand, but opted for this for now and I don't think I will switch. It's super full coverage that lasts all day. It is a little hard to blend but I may be using the wrong brush. I highly recommend!
Good for everyday use!
KM from Midwest
Really good coverage if you like a thicker full coverage
I found it to be watery
Geri from North Myrtle Beach, SC
Difficult to buy a foundation on line. My Granddaughter had one and it was too light for me, so I picked one that was a bit darker. However, it was still too light and too yellow. The consistency was watery even when I shook it up.
amazing for price
wanderponder2 from Napa, CA
I am no makeup guru, and I typically always wear Mac, but I wanted to experiment with drugstore type makeup. After doing some research I found myself purchasing this foundation and it's concealer. The smell is strong at first but it dies off and I'd say the product is similar to my Mac studio fix foundation. Grateful to have found it!
Angie from Washington, Seattle
Comparable to the Estée Lauder one, but better!! Perfect for oily skin.
Does the trick for the price
Reviewer from Lancaster pa
NOT full coverage but does what you need it to for the price. Very impressed
Holly from Chillicothe, Ohio
I found a piece of advice on a YouTube video a couple of years back; "it should never look like you have foundation on." I was looking for a more affordable alternative from urban decay's stay naked foundation; I stuck with it only because it was such a close match.
With that being said, I have fallen in love with L'Oréal infallible fresh wear! I picked the shade 410; I have fair skin, neutral with a slight yellow tone, and it looks absolutely perfect! It comes with a convenient pump, which I love. The formula is quite thin and runny, and it caught me off guard, but it's something I'm willing to look over. It's very lightweight and it hardly feels like I have it on. It covered most of my pimples and discoloration, no problem. It blends so easy and goes great with my skin tone. The finish is MUCH better than Urban Decay's; very soft and natural. It exceeded my standards, and I'm quite picky. I definitely recommend!
You've converted me!
RRecz571 from New Hartford NY
I've tried several different types and brands of foundation over the years. All in the Urban Decay-Bare Minerals-Makeup Forever-It Cosmetics type price range. None were good for my skin tone (very oily) and none had a color that worked. I picked this up in the shade 410 Ivory at the drug store after I saw a YouTuber mention it. I figured for the price, I'd give it a try.
Holy cow! It gives me a great medium buildable coverage, hid my huge pores, gave me a matte finish that looked AND FELT like I had nothing on, And I found a pale neutral! I guessed on my color and I happened to guess right. It's dead-on! I've never found anything that's as close as this. But to be honest, even if it was a little off, this is still the best I've found so far.
I've only worn it once or twice so far (COVID masks kinda preventing me from doing a whole face) but I'm tempted to try it. It doesn't seem like it'd rub off onto a mask.
I'll have to try it and update my review.
