Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing but read this!!!
Finally a foundation that has a yellow undertone!!! The first two colors run neutral and pink. But the rest run pretty neutral to yellow. I'm in between NC15 and NC20 and I'm right in between 102 and 103. I bought 101 and 104 so I could mix them. As for the formula, you don't need to touch up! it lasts on my hella oily skin for 12 hours! It stays matte for 8 which is bomb! No foundation compares! Its Light weight but not air light. The colors can be difficult to navigate. Here's a guide:
101 Classic Ivory - Fair with neutral/pink undertones
102 Shell Beige - Fair/Light with neutral undertones
103 Natural Buff - Light with neutral/yellow undertones
104 Golden Beige - Light/Medium with YELLOW undertones
105 Natural Beige - Medium with neutral/yellow undertones
106 Sun Beige - Medium with yellow undertones
107 Fresh Beige - Medium/Deep with neutral undertones
108 Caramel Beige - Medium/Deep with yellow undertones
109 Classic Tan - Deep with yellow/olive undertones
110 Créme Cafe - Deep with neutral undertones
111 Soft Sable - Dark with yellow undertones
112 Cocoa -Dark with neutral undertones
Hope this helped!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not loving this new look
I notice a new packaging on the INFALLIBLE Pro-Matte Foundation. I didn't think much of it until I got home and used it the new one is way too Matte it dryed my skin so bad! The color is off too! I looked at the one with the old package and I guess the difference is that it use to me simi matte and now this one is all matte. I'm so bummed because I've been using this for years!! I have combination skin and it worked great. I use to wear Mac Studio fix fluid. Until I found this one. I loved how it made my skin looked now I don't know what to do might have to go back to Mac if I can't get use to this new foundation.
Reviewed by 2945 customers Flawless beautiful coverage BUT awful color! :(
RhiRhi from Orlando, FL
First off, I LOOOVE this foundation. It truly is air light and doesn't feel like you are wearing anything on your face. Flawless coverage and this stuff lasts all day! I have some splotchy areas on my face and this foundation covers it so well, when other foundations (even expensive ones) do not. HOWEVER.....the color of this is so awful. I'm a light olive with green/grey undertones and all the shades in this foundation are way too pink or way too orange. I bought shade 101.5 which looks PERFECT right out of the tube, but it quickly dries to a very dark orange. It looks as though I got a terrible spray tan directly on my face :( I truly wish they would change the colors as this stuff is perfect otherwise!!
Pretty great for the price
beauty lover from Arkansas
Really blendable and sits nicely on my skin. I set it with fit me powder and lasts almost the whole day. Shade when applied gets a little bit darker on the actual face. Overall though I think it looks good
BringBackTheOldFormula from TX
This foundation is my all-time favorite! I've used it for years, and every time I wear it, I always get compliments. I have to say that new formula(with the red cap) is a complete disappointment!! It's way too dry and it looks so cakey. So disappointed that Loreal changed it. I'm going to different stores to see if they have my shade and buying them before they're gone for good 😭😭
Love the new formula!!!! ❤️
Emma from Minneapolis, MN
I don't understand why everyone is hating on the new red cap formula. I love it! I could never go back to the old one. It was too liquidy. It was hard to blend and easily wiped off. It didn't cover my imperfections, acne scars or acne whatsoever - it emphasized them! The new formula is thicker and easy to blend. It has amazing coverage, just don't use too much or it will look cakey - as it would with any foundation obviously. As long as you set it with a good powder it will last you all day long! Please don't listen to the bad reviews and give this a chance. My fave foundation I have ever tried.
New formula sucks
Zurinexay from WA
The new version with the red cap is the worst. It is very heavy and looks almost like a mask. I wish they would bring the original formula back, I'm so disappointed with this new version. 😔
Used to Be My Go-To
josephine from OH
As many have said, the new formula of this foundation (red cap) is nothing like the original. I had been using the original throughout my 40s since it was easy to apply, covered imperfections, didn't break me out, and kept my skin from looking too oily. The new formula is thicker, harder to blend, and isn't even the same shade! Seems to highlight wrinkles as well. So disappointed that I have to begin looking for a new foundation. C'mon, L'Oreal, bring back the original formula!
Dumbfounded by the brilliance of this product
jt from Texas
Ok so....how is this product so incredible? I really didn't expect to like it AT ALL because I have dry, dry skin, especially now in the winter. I have dry patches around my mouth and chin, and I usually use incredibly dewy foundations so that the dryness isn't emphasized. But somehow this matte foundation doesn't cling to dryness, but instead smooths over it and masks it. In fact, it smooths over my entire face and makes me look as flawless as is possible for me. The coverage is beautiful, and once it settles into the skin it creates a perfected, airbrushed, natural finish.
My only complaint with this product is the shade range. When will this makeup companies understand that people aren't orange? I bought 105, which turned out too dark and orange. Thankfully, once you wear it for a bit it becomes less orange, like a weird reverse oxidization. I just bought 104, so hopefully it's a little better. I would cry of happiness if they came out with less orange, more olive/yellow tones. But I don't have my hopes up.
Anyway, if this doesn't end up breaking me out (I don't think it will, it's fungal acne safe, alcohol-free, and fragrance-free) then this will become my ultimate HG foundation. Wish I would have tried it earlier.
Milena from Milwaukee
New version of product is a disaster!!! And Ulta Beauty should also change the picture, because picture shows the old "semi matte" version of product and it is a new version "matte" which cause me to order and receive new version of product which now I have to go back and return.
was good until they changed the product
alexandra from cleveland
this was my favorite foundation, got so many compliments and it made my skin look amazing and never broke me out. ever since they changed the formula with the red caps this has broken me out so bad and just feels so cakey on my skin, now i have to search for a new foundation. :(
Changed formula is terrible
disappointedbuyer from Bloomington, IN
I have been using the foundation for years and it was the only one that would work for me. I recently had to buy new and noticed the product now has a red cap instead of black. I could immediately tell it was not the same formula and it is terrible now. So sad to say I will not be repurchasing after all these years.
Will buy again and again
AnjiP from Indiana
Hands down best full coverage matte I have tried. Will continue to buy again and again. And bonus, you can't beat the price!
FULL COVERAGE YASSSS
LaciJaneMaria from Tulsa
I may have found something that replaces my Mac Foundation.. I was soooo impressed with this formula!! It blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! I absolutely love it! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore.
Love this foundation!!!!
Kelsey Mae from OH
I wear this foundation to work everyday. Sometimes I spend a lot of time outside in varying weather conditions, extreme heat/cold, rain, etc, and it holds up better than any other foundation I've used including high dollar luxury brands. I have very oily skin and have to wear a hat constantly at work. This foundation doesn't break down or get slimy feeling. I set it with a translucent loreal setting powder and its good to go all day.
RED cap IS NOT IT SIS!
KittyMeow from Dallas Texas
I am 40 look late 20s and have used this product for so many years! I am so sad its dropped down to such a lower product. I'm used to a certain quality from them and this is NOT it.
Best long lasting full cover for oily skin n big pores
Gabby from Long Island ny
I have extremely oily skin but dry patches also I tend to break Out from most foundations and by the end of the day or night I'm a shiny grease ball also no
Foundation covers my pores like this one !!! Love this foundation I tired everything from Estée Lauder to IL Makiage (horrible) to Mac which ruined my skin to every foundation under the sun this is the best !!!!! Make sure u use a oil controller or a good primer
this WAS my "holy grail"
rai rai from nashville
...until they did whatever they have done to the formula in the new red cap containers. it looks ridiculously cakey now and highlights every pore and line imaginable. i'm on the hunt again for a foundation after swearing by this one for years :/ highly disappointing
This product lasted me through jail
jenna from Brunswick county
This foundation is seriously the BOMB. Got ready with friends for a Halloween party and tried this foundation for the first time. Long story short, after a long night of partying, I was arrested and spent 12 hours in jail. not only did my mug shot look amazing and it completely held up until I was released, female guards were asking me what foundation I was wearing and kept complimenting my skin! 12/10
It's wonderful for the price.
Yayis from Dallas , texas
1. It stays put for about 5 hours.
2. The price-
3. Controls oil
1. It only stays put for about 5 hours
2. Soooo HARD to find a match for skin color
3. Difficult to blend
Red Cap formula is awful
Ang2654162 from Grand Rapids
The formula changed and it is awful. I forgot how oily my skin is until they switched this formula to some cheap version. I'll be switching the Estee Lauder Double Wear
New red cap formula is horrible
Ang272872 from Grand rapids
I won't be buying anymore. Company is lying and saying the formula wasn't changed. So it just magically became horrible and you just happened to change the cap to red at the same time. Will never buy again and I used this everyday for five years straight.
Melts at the slightest hint of sweat
C in Texas from Austin, TX
I attempted to use this under my eyes as coverage when I wasn't feeling like a concealer. It literally melts off at the slightest hint of sweat and if you're remotely oil it settles into fine lines. So if you live in the south this is an absolute no-go.
Somehow this product managed to find smile lines just above my cheek bones I never knew I had. After smiling/laughing for ~30 minutes I had strange, noticeable horizontal lines creased into the makeup above my cheekbones.
Just as nice as the $40 ones!!
Symone80 from New York
This foundation is just as nice as the $40 ones of this type. I've tried most of not all of them.
My new favorite foundation
Gosia from Schaumburg, IL
Love the color coverage and longevity of the wearability
GabbyPerez0719 from Visalia
My all time favorite foundation! Probably my favorite and top #1 out of 3. This foundations stays on all day and looks so beautiful on me. I would definitely recommend! I'm number 107.5, sucks I can't get it in store only online, but I always stock up on the buy one get one half off.
Cynister25 from California
