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 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!

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

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!

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.
Perfect everyday wear
Ana from Las Vegas
This foundation comes out super liquidy but its perfect for an everyday wear and give you a glow and feels like you don't have anything on. I like to mix this with the Pro Matte infalible just to get that extra coverage and it's the perfect combo.

not the best, not the worst
Macie from Indiana
I loved this foundation when I put it on. It wore nicely throughout the night until I took a picture with flash and it looked awful!! It made me look like a ghost and you could see every crease in my face. I will not be wearing again.
Kari from Arizona
i have normal to dry skin, mainly combination skin and this separated on my skin?? i tried everything but this would just not work on me. idk what kind of skin you need for this but mine just wasn't it? i was so excited for this since everyone loves it :(
If you can make it work...
Briannah from Great Bend, KS
It's a good foundation but it takes a lot of adjustment to get it perfect. Oxidizes quite a bit to an orange/yellow color. You also need a light hand and a good primer underneath (I use the Wet & Wild primer serum and Elf matte putty primer). It can get cakey in the t-zone pretty fast, use a light hand and build and it looks beautiful. Used it for a long time but the oxidation just is a deal breaker for me. Not for very oily skin, had to touch up every hour almost.
I love it!
Merdynes from SC
The match was perfect! This foundation melted into my skin like butter. I loved the finish.
CiCi from Pgh, PA
I've tried LOTS of high end foundations over the past few years and this beats them ALL hands down. I'm mid fifties with dry skin, broken capillaries and huge pores and this covers perfectly. I moisturize well, use Maybelline blur stick on pores, any primer then setting spray and this gives me pretty close to glass skin. I also use tretenoin and this smooths over dry patches well. It has a natural finish that seems to look better as the day goes on. Fragrance, if it is there, is a non issue for me. Stunning foundation! Price point and availability are added bonuses.
Baby Powder Smell
Diamond Beauty Shopper from Los Ángeles, CA
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.
