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.

I didn't do the best job reading the ingredient list before buying this I guess cause I didn't notice that it had fragrance until I started applying it. My skin hates fragrance of any kind so I broke out after one use :( it sucks cause this is probably my closest shade match I've ever found and it looks pretty but it's not worth the breakouts
My budget go to
Lizeth from Bakersfield
I love this foundation especially for the price is amazing.
I would purchase again.
Llama Lover from California
I love how light weight it feels. I hate matte finishes because they always look heavy on my textured skin. This foundation gives a smooth look, even without a primer. The only thing that needs improvement is the buildable coverage. I can sheer it out and build it to medium coverage, but it still shows skin peaking through no matter how much I layer. I love that it is skin-like, but sometimes I want a little more coverage without the heaviness of a concealer underneath. I still enjoy it regardless and know it probably was not meant to be full coverage so that is why I give it 5 stars.
overhyped by youtubers

It does look good on the skin and slowly wears off, also really clings to the dry patches so wont recommend
Heather from Michigan
I would love this foundation, but they don't have my shade!! Frustrating...
Emily from Frankfort Kentucky
This is a Pretty close dupe for the Armani luminous silk foundation. Good coverage but not thick at all!
Marin from Atlanta
I was so excited about this because I originally tried too faced foundation that I thought was so cakey...
This foundation can be a little cakey and hard to work with and does weird things with my concealer ?? Like gets patchy I guess because it dries fast
I also didn't feel like it lasted very long
KLee from WI
I rarely write reviews, but when I do it's because I'm impressed by the product, and I'd like to share the good news.
I used this foundation when I had both oily skin and combination skin (normal to dry). Both times this foundation looked amazing and held on for a long time even after I took naps in between during the day. I wore this foundation for at least 8-12 hours and it still looked great on my skin compared to other foundations in the past!
As far as transfer-proof claim is concerned, it transfers a little, but not enough to remove the foundation off your face. By hour 10-11, it did settle into my fine lines & wrinkles, but not as bad as other foundations I have tried before.
This has been my experience with this product so far. My experience may be different from others, but I still hope this review helps!
Cat from PA
Definitely full coverage, which I wasn't expecting for a thin formula. Lasts all day with the right setting spray. The only downside is the initially chemically scent, but it doesn't linger. I apply first with a brush and then press in with a damp beauty sponge, since it seems like the sponge soaks up a lot of product.
Worth The Hype
MJ from Glendora
I love this foundation. I wore it till 10am- 8pm still looking snatched. This product did not look cakey. If it does, you need to set it better or prime better. I would recommend this to anyone!
Amazing for drugstore!
AshBash from Oklahoma
Love how lightweight this foundation is and is minimal on transfer.

Pretty good but not my ride or die.
Amborg from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
I used Findation and Temptalia in addition to Ulta's foundation shade finder to find my shade. I was on the fence between two different shades (Ivory Buff and Cool Vanilla) and this one (Ivory Buff) works okay, it's just that it is a bit more neutral to warm while I am neutral leaning more toward the cool side. I thought I could get away with this foundation with the right color concealer, bronzer, and tinted pink finishing powder to make it look cooler but after putting in the work I'm going to have to call it a no-go. I should have gone with the Cool Vanilla shade but since Loreal doesn't actually tell you whether a color is cool, neutral, or warm in the descriptions, it's hard to tell based on the dumb circle next to each shade. I'm not a color expert. I feel a bit annoyed at this brand for not having more clear descriptions of their colors. I'm also feeling let down by Findation, since I would have gone with the Cool Vanilla otherwise. As far as the formula goes, it's a good formula and it lasts a long time without creasing. For the price, I'm impressed, although I don't know if I will actually repurchase this. I have a lot of open bottles of foundation at the moment. If I had gotten the right shade I would probably be ecstatic but I feel like it's going to be a lot of work cooling down the warmth in this neutral shade. This whole bottle was a waste of money. I can see it ending up in the back of my drawer for a year only to be thrown away when I swatch it and see how warm it is.
Your skin but better
Ohanne from Kentucky
This is a light to medium build able coverage foundation. It has a natural finish that is great for everyday.
Izzy from Las Vegas
This foundation is one that I use time and time again. I don't even need to use concealer, it gives me the right amount of coverage. I have combination skin and I love that it doesn't break apart on my nose. This withstands the crazy weather that I have to deal with. Just today, I ran out in the pouring rain and came back inside with my foundation still intact, giving me a nice skin like glow.
NH0802 from Orlando FL
Bought this for virtual Sorority recruitment bc I didn't want to spend $40 on foundation if I was just going to be on zoom. It is Watery and only medium coverage instead of full but I'm not exaggerating when I say it literally looks like you have a Snapchat filter on IRL. Super lightweight and breathable too it feels like I have no makeup on at all!! Definitely recommend :)))
Not a huge fan... will be returning
AllenaMae from Auburn, WA
To be completely honest, I didn't test out the wear of this foundation at all because as soon as I put it on my skin, I could smell the fragrance, and it was not particularly pleasant to me personally. I could still smell it on my face for about two hours afterwards, and I really didn't like it. This may be a good foundation for you if you don't mind the fragrance, but it was just way too much for me.
Isn't it funny that all the bad reviews are at the end?
Barsnackcatnap from Poplar bluff mo
Bought this in between high end purchases for foundation. The color I chose is a tad too yellow for me but then again I'm hard to match. My bad. Speaking from someone who has dry skin, freckles, and eternally red complexion, this is full coverage. Much more full coverage than my Lancôme teint idole. I'll be repurchasing this for price and longevity. Took a star off because it caked up a little around my nostrils and settled into my 1 wrinkle between my eyebrows. But this happens with most all of my foundations.
Can't stand the smell
Foxtrot26 from Austin, TX
I tried this because everyone on YouTube loves it. But it didn't control my oils and clung to my dry patches. It also smells like old perfume.
Light summer coverage

Finally found my true color match
Marty from Texas
It's perfect for everyday wear. I work in the medical field and have to wear a mask all day. Doesn't clog my pores
brenda from Los Angeles
I bought this because of All the hype but I wouldn't say it's the best I love the color but it's super watery and smells good so there's that... and I've honestly tried better foundations I've used it for like a month now
Not Worth The Hype
mic from ohio
I truly dont see the hype about this foundation at all!! It went on terribly and the shades are very orange. It also made my skin super oily, in places it usually doesnt get oily, after about 4 hours of it being on my face.
Does not stay on!
Vanessa from CA
I'm honestly surprised by all the great reviews! This makeup would not stay on my face, within the hour it was completely gone. I've been trying so many drugstore foundations because I can no longer justify my expensive one & this one was the worst!
