Most Helpful Positive Review used while on accutane. amazing!
God yes. If you're not aware of what Accutane is, it's a strong acne prescription drug that makes your skin extremely dry. It wasn't my first time taking accutane so I knew going into it what would happen to my skin. So I went to my local drug store and picked this one out-not knowing what I was getting into going into this. Ive never used a foundation by this brand but it was the only foundation that pretty heavily branded 'heavy glow', so I bought it (plus it was super cheap compared to others). Let me just say I never had high hopes for this foundation. I have an extremely hard time finding foundation that works for me and considering I was about to go through skin h*ll for the next 8 months I wasn't getting my hopes up. Long story short this foundation was a holy grail. I never once had any dry patches through a 12 or 15 hours I had this on. Occasionally if I knew I was touching my face a lot that day I'd have to quickly powder and blend my face some. that was really the only con. I applied beautifully and so smooth once you powder your face. My contour and highlight blended well with it and all in all Im super impressed. 2 months after I finished Accutane (finished my 3rd bottle) I ran out and didn't have time to go to the store and pick up more so I used some of my foundation I used before which was some high end pricey foundation. Lets just say I went through the day feeling like my face was the dessert, and looking so cakey. immediately that next morning I picked me up some more pro-glow. I will never go back to anything else and will honestly be devastated if they discontinue this. If you know you have dry skin or if you're on Accutane or some other skin solution that makes your skin dry PLEASE use this. I promise you'll never want to use anything else. This saved me from 8 months of h*ll because honestly I loved putting on my makeup knowing I was going to look glowey and flawless.
Most Helpful Critical Review it's ok
I read nothing but positive reviews on this foundation. Yes it's beautiful and is very thin and has good coverage, but it reminds be a lot of the loreal lumi without the wetness because it does set. What I noticed from it was that it enhances my pores and actually settled in them and made them look more prominent. I also noticed upon applying it that it was settling into my fine lines. It's an ok foundation I don't get the hype.

If you're going for a dewy, luminous finish that won't break your bank account, this is it! It has great coverage (I have pretty bad hormonal acne breakouts) but of course it's not 100% covering. For my dry skin, it prevents it from looking to cakey or flakey! Only complaint is the shade range. I buy the 02 and it's almost a little dark for me and I'm never the first shade of any foundation. For a medium/full coverage they need more shades!
Great Drugstore Foundation
erica from chicago
This is one of the best affordable, everyday foundation. Great to wear on a low-key day. It is not cakey nor patchy provides a great glow and moisture.
I LOVE IT!
H.M from Los Angeles
One of my favorite foundations! It looks so smooth on my skin. It doesn't make me look cakey/dry at all.
The best foundation EVER!
Kiki from Birmingham, AL
I have used this foundation for a few years and LOVE IT! I have a light/medium skin tone with combination skin. I use 204 Natural Buff in the summer and 203 in the winter. I always try to buy expensive / fancy foundations too but nothing beats this one! It is the perfect amount of coverage, goes on well, isn't greasy or cakey, and doesn't make me look orange or white. I love it! I can wear it for daily makeup, and for a night out! 12/10
Karmi from Corona Ca
The texture was not to heavy on my face . I loved the coverage . The coverage is build able. It has a radiant glow . It was easy to color match and affordable.
I would definitely buy this foundation again!!

L from L
I have slightly dry skin and i love this foundation. it is one of the only ones i've tried that isn't cakey or patchy at all. it's a very hydrating and dewy formula that i just love. and, if you wanted to powder it down, it works wonderfully with powder.
I very much enjoy this foundation
LinaLeo from NH
for context - I have normal to dry skin that's been on Earth for 32 years. not too many fine lines but I do have pores that a family of four could swim in, and I significant amount of scarring from relentlessly picking my face as a teenager and into my early 20s and scarring from falling off a playground and face planting into a pile of wood chips. so sometimes glowy makeup can emphasize texture and this does, unless I wear a pore filling type of primer then I apply this with a dense brush, a little goes a long way doing this since the foundation itself is quite thin and spreadable. it really has the most beautiful finish, whether you build it up or just lightly buff in a pea sized amount.
SM from Virginia
This is the best foundation out there!!! I used to use the two faced born this way, but after discovering this I'm never going back!!!
Not Worth It!
Libby from PA
This was recommended to me by so many people that I finally caved and bought it. I regret buying it. I've tried applying it with a sponge, brush, and fingers, tried multiple layers, and i can hardly get enough coverage to balance out the redness from my face, let alone cover anything, yet it still looks cakey. The worst thing though, is that this foundation does this horrific thing where no matter what concealer I use with it, it turns into this gross, gummy mess.
Cassie from Missouri
I've been looking for a dewy, non-cakey, medium to full coverage foundation FOREVER. On some impulse I grabbed this and I couldn't be happier. It performs well, good buildable coverage, and lasts for quite a while.
Great for dry patchy skin
Cherlyn from Miami, FL
I've had a hard time finding a foundation that works with my very dry and often patchy skin. This foundation has made all the difference. It goes only easily (I use a sponge) and is buildable. It actually helps smooth my dry patches. I just wish the color range was extended. I wear #203 and have a light/medium skin tone. I'm not convinced there are enough shades for fair skin. There also seems to be lacking deep shades.
Lost track of repurchases
Stella from Virginia
if you have dry skin PLZ do yourself a favor and get this foundation. I have tried so many brands, both drugstore and high-end and I always come back to this one. I prefer full-coverage but with my dry skin, that's almost impossible to achieve. However, this really does an amazing job at covering my skin without it caking up. With setting spray it lasts all day for me, but again I have extremely dry skin. I am ~shook this isn't rated higher.
Tati from Las Vegas
This foundation is great. The shade matches my skin perfectly. I would say it's light to medium coverage, but you can definitely build up. It doesn't look cakey at all, makes my skin look naturally glowy & doesn't feel heavy which is a major plus!
hannah from va
this foundation would be very good if you like full coverage and glowyness. I bought this last year and i was more into heavier makeup but now i tend to not wear make up at all and just focus on skin care. deffidently do recomend this foundation because its affordable and gets the job done.

I use this after elf primer and it looks glowy and so nice. Great price for a foundation that works good on dry skin and covers my rednesd
My all time favorite foundation
Karli from Cincinnati, OH
I have been searching for the right foundation for years. I have quite the collection of flops😅 I have combination, acne prone skin. It's mostly oily, but with some dry parts. Finally I found this and gave it a try because of Bailey Sarian (on Youtube). This is the best foundation for me!! It has a beautiful, non-cakey finish. It doesn't get super greasy in my oily zones (most of my face) and it doesn't crack in my dry zones. It applies effortlessly and also doesn't crease easily. It's a full-coverage foundation with a natural look. I'm so in love with this foundation! The best part is that it's beautiful and high quality without making your bank account cry in pain 😆 I really hope this stays around for a long time (and maybe expands in shade range)! Love this so much and I will use this forever!
Best foundation overall.
Glowing20 from USA
I have numerous high end foundation brands and I still feel this is the best. It truly gives your skin a glow and hides imperfections. Not wasting my money on $45+ foundations anymore. L'Oréal, please never stop making this.

I love it .my fav foundation
Love this foundation!
Valerie from Orange
I absolutely love this foundation especially because of the affordable price! I've tried many different foundations ranging from high end to drug store. But I recently had tried the loreal matte foundation and became obsessed. Since my skin was more dry I decided to try the pro-glow and I'm so glad I did. I love how light this foundation is. I like to put on a pretty good amount and it does an amazing job at being full coverage but not cakey. Sometimes I forget I'm wearing foundation at all that's how light it is. Other foundations felt heavy and greasy but this one is perfect for my dry sometimes oily skin! I have refilled about 3-4 times and would definitely recommend!!

Used to be one of my top foundations until I realized ir was breaking me out.
Best foundation ever
Care from Las Vegas, NV
I had given up for a while on using foundation. I spent months trying new foundations and all of them either looked cakey or were very noticeable on my skin. I tried this foundation and I feel in love with it. It's so lightweight and hydrates my skin giving me a healthy glow. Lasts all day and is very easy to build coverage without looking like you have makeup. A lot of people complement my skin because of this foundation.
(I have dry sensitive skin)
Fantastic formula terrible shade range
Karli from Pennsylvania
I have used this foundation for years and I love it so much. I have dry skin and it was one of the few products that I can use that doesn't make me look dry and cakey. It is very glowy so if you have oily skin it is probably too intense. I like to use it alone or mix it with more matte foundations to add glow to them. The only thing that I dislike is the shade range. The lightest is far too light for me and the undertone is weird and the second lightest is too dark for me and the undertone is also weird. I usually mix the two or just use the darker one with other foundations/a lighter concealer. Needs more shades.
Lulu from Ohio
I am so impressed with this foundation! I work in the beauty industry so I've tried it all...but this absolutely blew me away! Performs better than even my most high end formulas and looks gorgeous
Pretty good! Doesn't cause breakouts!!
Kim from Wichita, KS
My friend recommended me this, at first I wanted to get the matte foundation but I'm glad she got me to pick the pro-glow. I have sensitive, dry to combination skin, this product did not make me breakout!! It's a medium to full coverage foundation, definitely buildable, faint smell, light feeling and makes ur face shine bright like a diamond! It's a liquidity foundation, so be careful! Overall, I like this product!
