Most Helpful Positive Review Great Longwear and Great Coverage
I have shied away from makeup the past few years because of bad skin, oily skin, breakouts, and terrible coverage. I needed a foundation for a recent work event, so I tried this one. I'm a Pasty White Girl™, and I'm always worried that the lightest shade will still be too dark - not with this! I feel like I could possibly have gone one shade darker (which NEVER happens for me!)
Coverage was amazing - I used two pumps, but probably could've gotten away with 1.5 pumps. I'm old school and used a warm, dampened cosmetic round (similar to beauty blenders). I used NO concealer in my full face look. Nor did I use any contour or bronzer.
The make up went on smoothly, with no tugging, patching, or pulling. I was able to pat it on easily, going over certain sections to get more coverage. It covered all my red areas beautifully.
Once foundation was on, I followed up with CG pressed powder, liner, and mascara, Mally eyes, L'Oreal brows, Revlon blush, and Wet & Wild gloss.
My look lasted well into the afternoon at work - I took progress photos at 3pm, and I still looked really great. Somewhat shiny, but that's on me, not the make up (a pat with toilet paper will take care of that). I included a close up; it's under fluorescent lights, so it's not the best photo, but there's no meltdown happening. Although, when I got home and had a rousing dinner with my family (complete with tears of laughter that had me repeatedly wiping my face), I finally had some makeup wipe off.
Also, caveat... While I live in Florida, it's winter right now, so I don't know how this foundation will hold up to the extremely BRUTAL days of August!
Removing was super-simple. I used purity to remove it, along with a little face scrubby. There were no lingering after-effects like a lot of other foundations - no days after break outs!
I'm so glad I tried this. I think the pump will keep the product fresh and bacteria-free so that I can keep it around for when I wear makeup occasionally
Most Helpful Critical Review Long lasting but not full coverage.
I received a free sample of the Loreal infallible 24 hour fresh wear in the color sand in exchange for an honest review of the product. Surprisingly this was a pretty good color match despite the small sized photo of the shade selector.
This was applied to two individuals to receive a thorough review. The first was a 14 year old female without skin discoloration or blemishes. The product gave good coverage and lived up to its long lasting name. The second female was 48, with some skin darkening/discoloration, but blemish free. This was a long wear product, but did not give a full coverage nor did it cover the differences in the skin tone.
The product is liquid, and is in a pump which made for easy application without wastage of the product. No skin irritation , redness, or itching occured.
The decreased rating is due to lack of coverage. While the color match was good, easy application, and long wear, a foundation should provide an even palette.

Straight from the bottle to my arm to test. Formula was sheer easy to blend. Light coverage so I added more to build which it did. I immediately noticed a strong fragrance like baby powder. I have sensitive skin and the fragrance is overwhelming for me. I wish L'Oréal would get rid of the fragrance. It isn't necessary in my opinion. I will be returning or giving it away.

Not for dry skin
Kate from Virginia Beach
I've heard that this is a good drugstore foundation, however, I would not recommend this on dry skin. My skin is fairly dry and this product did not blend well and left my skin looking cakey. I can't speak for all skin types, it may be great on others, but this was just my experience!
Great coverage but breaks me out
Jade from Central Florida
I love the coverage of this for the price point but it breaks me out something awful. And I don't have sensitive skin at all!
I can't decide if I like this or not
VC from NYC
I keep trying to love this foundation because so many of my favorite YouTubers speak so highly of it. But every time I use it, I always feel so confused. It looks so much better after it's been worn for a couple of hours than when I first apply it. I find that when I first put it on, any area that has slight texture or any dry spots, this foundation really clings and accentuates those areas. I also found that if I put it near my eye area, it causes any concealer I put on top of it to clump and pill and just look so horrible. But once my natural oils break through, it looks so pretty on the skin. It's almost like a backwards foundation. I don't think I'd rebuy it but I don't completely hate it, but i definitely don't love this foundation.
I like it, but not for me
Summer from Wa
I actually love how it wore on my skin, the finish and coverage is beautiful but the fragrance is too strong for me.
Absolutely Amazing Product
Karabelle83 from California
I can't believe how long this lasted all day at work! It looks beautiful on the skin and so comfortable to wear! Now I know what the hype is all about!
I completely LOVED IT!
Yeri from Los Angeles, CA
Although it gave amazing coverage you do need to use a good amount
Very soft and glowy look
Bob from Az
Ash_Bick from Texas
This is an amazing product! This product looks just as good at the end of the day as it does when it is first applied. Moreover, I have dry skin and this product does not dry out my skin. I also have a textured forehead and large pores on my cheeks. This product looks great on my textured forehead, but needs a pore primer to reduce the look of pores on my cheeks. This is my new all time favorite foundation. I will definitely be repurchasing this again and again!
A great, cheap, "everyday foundation"
Marie Fr from ME - Maine
24 YEAR-OLD, PALE/FAIR, OILY SKIN
Goes on smoothly
Pump is great for application
Doesn't crease or cake TOO bad (I have very oily skin)
Very light scent but barely noticeable (to me)
Didn't affect my skin in any negative way
Light/medium build is great for everyday use. I would describe this as the everyday alternative to Estee Lauder's Double Wear, which for me is too heavy for everyday use.
If you want full coverage this may not be for you.
Longevity depends on which powder you use. I'm still looking for the perfect talc-free powder to set my makeup with, but I was using Too Faced Born This Way before I realized it had talc as an ingredient.

I wanted to replace my expensive Lancome foundation! This product is even better than I expected!
This ain't it
Vanessa from Texas
I really wanted to like this foundation. I'm a huge fan of the L'Oréal pro matte foundation it's one of my holy grails but I wanted to try something not so matte and I heard great reviews! Tried it for a couple weeks and I can't get over the smell! I'm usually not sensitive to fragrance but it broke me out horribly. Don't recommend.
I wanted to like it.
Jazzy from Cali
I bought this product somewhere else and just wanted to share my thoughts. I have normal skin and I don't normally get issues with foundations. I decided to try this because of the hype from Tik Tok and some other famous youtubers. It's super watery but I don't mind. It's a very light coverage foundation and very natural looking one, which Is my goal. But I hated how my skin looked with it. I have pretty nice clear skin and basically no bumps with any other foundation but with this foundation all my bumps I didn't even know I had appeared and just felt so greasy? That day my nose was acting up and was more oily than normal but it wasn't like super oily but when I applied, it started to break down and just cracked after an HOUR of me wearing it. I gave this foundation so many tries but It just doesn't look good :( I really wanted to like it.
Decent but oxidizes
Liv from LA
I've been using this foundation every day. I have normal skin with a bit of texture, and I find it looks best with a dewy primer or heavier moisturizer on underneath to help it melt into the skin. Without, it's a tiny bit to dry looking in my opinion (I like dewy skin) it's medium coverage, and you might want to get one shade lighter because it does dry darker.
Would buy again
mely from New York
It's a very good and affordable foundation
I love it.
Rosie from El Paso, Tx.
I love it. The color looks very natural. It does stay on for a long time.
Tarruda from FL
Does not blend into the skin. It sits on top like a film and you can clearly see you have bad make-up on.
Justine from Dallas, TX
I have heard so many good things about this foundation so I got it. It smells strong and the smell lasts. It did not dissipate. If you are sensitive to smells you might not want to get this.
Better than expensive brands!
Katie from Springfield, IL
So I've struggled to find a good foundation. I bought 2 from Lancome that were highly rated and they were AWFUL on my skin! I wasn't expecting to love this one but I do! I don't have texture between my eyebrows like a lot foundations create, and it looks just like my skin. It's actually "fresh" looking. It also doesn't slide around on my face or look patchy. I'm definitely happy with this. I haven't bought a drug store foundation in years! I have fair skin and it's dry, but somehow gets oily on my forehead. I used a moisturizer underneath and then a Smashbox primer and it worked great!
This is a must buy!
Jessica from Pittsburgh, Pa
I tried this because I am always looking for a long lasting matte foundation. I have combo skin with an oily tzone. The texture is a lot thinner than I was expecting and it blends out great with a damp sponge. I would say it has medium/full coverage, and can be built up in troublesome areas (I have red cheeks and it covers well). It lasts all day ( I usually apply makeup at 8am and take it off around 11pm). The finish is matte, but not an overly drying matte that looks cakey. I do set with rcma no color powder, but I set all my foundation. Doesn't settle into my fine lines/wrinkles and has an awesome shade range.
Awesome foundation, it replaced my Fit Me!
Shannan from Harrisonburg, VA
I was getting tired of using my Fit Me, and wanted to try something new. A friend recommended this, I'm so glad they did. This foundation doesn't look caked up, it's matte without being dry looking, and makes me look airbrushed. PLEASE get this if you can!
Great formula, way too much fragrance
CPowell from Iowa
The formula is great and it stays on well with masks but the fragrance is so strong and lingers all day and gives me a headache so I can't wear it sadly.
Smell too strong
Rosy from Houston
It has a strong like perfume smell made me dizzy when smelling it
Sits on the skin, visible
Whit from ME
I wanted to love this, after all Lisa Eldridge uses it all the time. But it sits on my skin oddly, not blending. It cakes around my nose and settles in to the lines on my forehead. I have dry skin and if I don't over moisturize I can't wear it.
