        I was excited to learn about this product and couldn't wait to try it. I wanted to try it for a few days.... just to give it a chance before I gave my opinion. It's not for me! My nose is really oily and the product did not last 3 hours into my day. I was really disappointed.

          I love this powder foundation! I have been using it for years! The only I will say is make sure that you keep your skin super moisturized and not dry. I'm sure that goes for any foundation though as it will make dry skin look worse. I will sometimes get eczema around my nose and mouth and this will cover the redness well but makes the flakes and bumps appear more noticeable (imo, no one every notices though since their not studying my face like I am on the mirror). But overall this is an awesome powder foundation and has been my go to for maybe the past 7-8 years now

            Comments about L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder:

            I discovered Maybelline's Infallible Pro line on Pinterest when searching for, "Best makeup for combination skin." Infallible Pro Matte was listed as top 3 in every list! I was looking for a unicorn of powders and foundations and did not expect to actually find it. With an affordable price tag where you can actually enjoy the entire line for a complete look, you will not go broke in a single purchase; and you get exactly what they said it would do. You will get a beautiful seamless and smooth coverage WITHOUT looking too powdery or cakey. It reduced my shine and still allowed my skin to glow in the way that any girl would want for a no makeup-makeup look. The color was a perfect match to my skin tone (which is the main reason most foundations don't make the cut). I never expect a powder to stay matte all day (that's silly) so a touch up in the afternoon won't kill you and you'll still get 5 stars from me. I purchased the liquid foundation as well for a seamless complete look. I am comfortable wearing this everyday for any occasion. This was such a great discovery because now I pay attention to the Maybelline line and have discovered more great products from them. You will be happy. You won't go broke. You will look gorgeous!

                  Holy grail daily powder. I have combo skin- t zone is crazy oily sometimes but cheeks/ jaw/ neck can be dryyyyy. Also have very red cheeks. I am fair like a vampire and use the lightest shade- it's not orange tinged and has never oxidized on me. I wear over foundation for a full coverage look but on the weekend when only goal is to knock shine and redness down- it does that too. I wouldn't think this would be great for really dry skin- when my dry parts of my face are dry this shows flakes and can be a little caked. But for oily t zone- Best product I've used. I quit carrying a compact in my purse because even on 12 hour workdays and humidity/ heat, it's a great finish that lasts.

                    I'm a makeup junkie and will buy anything that gets good reviews. This is HANDS down one of the best coverage powders I've ever used. I switched from Mac to this recently and may never go back because this does NOT stick in my poors or wrinkles like Mac pressed powder does. It also doesn't dry out my skin. LOVE it for the price.

                    Hard to find the right color for your skin though. They need more options!!! I need to spray tan and use the tanner color to match my skin because the lighter colors are too pink/ peach for me.

                          Hello! The term non-comedogenic indicates that the product has a low potential for clogging pores. Not all products are tested for non-comedogenicity. If the non-comedogenic claim does not appear on the product, it is not an indication the product is comedogenic.

                          Hello GavinMua! Thank you for reaching out. Our Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder provides a soft matte finish for a multi-dimensional look. We have not tested this powder for flashback photography. Hope this helps!

                          Hello there! It is very difficult to find a shade based on this type of communication. Our best suggestion is to take a look at 700 Classic Tan in our Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder. We hope this helps and thanks for reaching out!
