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.

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.
Wanted to love it but...
I tried from East Tennessee
I wanted to love this. I have seen it everywhere for a long time and was finally convinced enough to try it. It looks absolutely beautiful at first. However, within 4-5 hours it starts to separate on my skin. I have tried everything to stop this from happening. This may work for some people, but for this combination girl it is a no go.
Won't be buying this again!
Kai from Pueblo
Was looking for all day coverage and a light feeling make-up. So it doesn't look like I'm wearing make-up. This is not that product
I will not buy it again.

I returned this foundation. It was too liquid for my taste. I'm used to more creamy liquid foundations.
So far so good
Vbocardo from Idaho
Love the infallible formula this one feels different but just as good. Just as long lasting it's definitely a good go to

I love this foundation. It's perfect
Melissa from Denver, CO
I found this foundation to be true to claims. The formula was very lightweight and comfortable. When I applied it with a damp sponge it gave medium coverage with a natural/satin finish. It applied equally well with a dense foundation brush. You could still see my freckles with one layer. My skin looked even and healthy throughout the day, and I didn't notice any increase in shine or caking. Shade-wise I found 405 porcelain to be a good match; I also wear Sheer Glow in Salzburg, CYO 101, MUFE Reboot Y218. For reference I am in my late 30s and have normal/combo skin.
Laura from Santa Clara, CA
I really tried my best to like it, like i use it twice a week for a year to see if it's just me. But no this foundation is not for me.
It's super patchy around your eyebrow area or on any kind of texture on the skin. It's not full coverage, I would say low to medium. If you don't set it with powder, it feels sticky and like sunscreen on your skin. If u scratch ur face or touch it in anyways, it leaves a streak. There's better out there and I think I'm going to stick to my maybelline fit me foundation.
Only reason why it's 2 stars is bc it wasn't lying when the said it's 24hrs!!
I will not buy it again.

I returned this foundation. It was too liquid for my taste. I only tried it once and didn't feel it gave me full coverage. I'm used to more 'creamy' liquid foundations.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS DRUGSTORE
Laura from Los Angeles
This is the foundation that I travel with. It makes my skin look STUNNING. It has SPF which protects your skin, as well as delivering a beautiful natural look to the skin. It's medium coverage, but it can be easily built up into a full coverage glam moment! The only thing that might put you on the fence is the SPF, but I can assure you, my skin still looks stunning with this foundation on in photos. There is minimal flashback, and I would still wear this out because of how beautiful I feel in this. I couldn't recommend this product more, and the fact that it's affordable leaves me buying this product repeatedly.
The Only Drugstore Foundation I Use
Christie from Michigan
This has become an everyday staple for me. The consistency of this product is thinner/runnier than other foundations, but if you use it with a good primer (I use Milani Prime Perfection), it works great. I have rosacea so working with my redness can be a challenge, but once again, using a good "sticky" primer is key with this product for me. Smooth application with buildable coverage.
Nj from Joplin, mo
This foundation stays on through sweating and wearing a mask for 8 hours at work. They actually have shades light enough for my pale skin.
ace from hsv
not as full coverage as i expected but still good coverage, it's very thin nd matched my color pretty good, i have combo skin and so far it looks great! i matched it with the l'oréal infallible full wear waterproof concealer and it works good. overall 8-10!
I will buy this again
Lisa from Phoenix, AZ
So smooth and lightweight
Decent for the price, but not a home run
MaggieMoo from New Jersey
Good color range, blends well and doesn't break out my sensitive skin. On the down side it has a perfume smell that seems "old timey", lasts only 6 hours not 24, and does show my pores even with a primer.
nomadsgfrus from Houston, TX
I have received a sample of the foundation. It provides a variety of tones for me to identify the colour that is suitable for me. It feels light too! However, would need to try out the actual product to see how long lasting it is! Will definitely give it a try!
👍🏾👍🏾 HOME RUN
Dade from DFW
It's a challenge for me to find the right shade but this hits home! I ran out of my BOBBI BROWN that feels like I'm wearing nothing and this is close to it, if not exact. I like a minimal fresh beat face and I'm dedicated to keeping my skincare in line with the Clinique system so this foundation agrees with my skin. I did not experienced any breakouts or skin irritations and if I did, it would've happened by now bc I have sensitive skin. I am normal to dry and this foundation feels hydrating, my skin feels great, not like I'm wearing makeup. My skin can breathe. I didn't want to wash it off at the end of my day. The liquid formula is more runny than most foundations, not thick at all. I don't mind that. I press the product in and then buff or uses beauty blender. I set it with a baked powder (in Mahogany) and it was flawless, there was no transfer, which says enough bc I wear a lot of white. It matches my neck so I only applied to my face. I love this and am very pleased with the outcome. I even grabbed the concealer in "Honey" and it feels like the perfect match! I was expecting to have to return it bc I usually don't score a winner on the first go round, but I must say this is a winner and is now a staple as long as my skin likes it. It lasts longer than I need, I don't need 24hrs but glad to know it holds up to that long. I wore it during one of the hottest days and I did not sweat off, it's like water proof but feels like water but it's not water! AHHHMAZING! Love love love it! I understand what all the hype is about. This can feels like my Clinique even better foundation. It's the perfect match!
Erinn from Council Bluffs, Iowa
This is a lightweight formula that blends easily. I was able to find a perfect match for my skin color. It's a good medium coverage foundation. Had a little difficulty with it staying on in the summer heat.
Looking glowy and dewy
Sam from FL
I've had this foundation for a little while and I didn't really like it the first couple of times I used it because I was looking for fuller coverage. Now that I have full coverage foundation and I don't want that full-beat look every single day, I've started reaching for this foundation again and I LOVE it. It looks natural and radiant with just a little bit of product. Plus I appreciate the added SPF.
Kim from California
I have combination skin. This foundation made the appearance of my skin very patchy where I have acne. It only took like 30 minutes to an hour for the foundation to rub off quite easily.
Marie from Dallas, Texas
Great product and the colors really match your skin!! I had been using Fenty Beauty but definitely will be changing over.
Not great for skin texture
Sylvia from NYOB
I don't know if I did something wrong, but when I applied this I realized it made me skin look bumpier and more textured than my skin looks without foundation! The formula is very lightweight and lasts a long time, but it doesn't look great on me. I think this would be great for you if you have skin with minimal texture/bumpiness. If I could get rid of my skin texture I would maybe buy again.
Kay14 from Chicago, Il
I've used this a couple times now, and so far I do like it. It goes on smoothly, it's lightweight and doesn't feel heavy. It lasted the whole day, and was easy to wash off. Great price point as well
Can easily be my go to
