How to Use
Rated 4.19 out of 5 stars
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
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.

I got vanilla from the app's shade finder and it was way too dark and yellow, for my light neutral skin. I exchanged it for natural rose (440) and it's way better. Love the coverage, love the finish. I don't get oily for many hours.

My fav foundation leaves a beautiful finish and is better than high end

Now that I've used this for a few months, I am not as impressed as I was initially. This has dried my skin out pretty badly using it 3 times per week. It always looks dry and cakey and wears off in weird patches. It's okay, but I will not repurchase.

I was a little exceptical about it because of the ingredients, but I gave it a shot and it's the most natural, healthy-looking foundation I've ever came across. It almost looks like I don't have anything on, and that's really hard for me, specially around my nose (we're I have sebaceous filaments that tend to emphasize EVERYTHING I put on top), another thing is that also has a tiny blurring effect and it lasts like crazy. With this I can save money on primers and setting sprays, I think they are unnecessary and this product proofs it; with this you don't need to follow the long list of steps people do nowadays to make a nice makeup look. This is just practcity itself, I truly wish these kind of products could always remain in the market.
Julia from Minnesota
Honestly, Love this foundation! It's great for those who like a lightweight, medium to full coverage, buildable foundation. I have noticed it tends to transfer if you become really sweaty, which sucks. I'd say with touching up on powder every once and a while throughout the day, you should be ok. A little goes a long way too, which is nice if you want a more light coverage look. If you're thinking about trying this foundation, DO IT!

I have used IT cosmetics for years but since we are having to hide most of our faces under masks these days I decided to try a less expensive product. I was amazed. This foundation covers as well as IT foundation at less than half the price. Will purchase again and again !
Sarah from Cali
I love this foundation and I love that it has a small smell of spf I think it's more of a foundation for when you want to go outdoors and do stuff u need spf but not too much coverage I have oily complexion and need a matte foundation but this works if I go outdoors it's a nice foundation it feels good on

Every day for all day wear

This has great coverage but every single time I use it even with clean brushes/sponges and when I take a break, it breaks me out something terrible. I know it's this because any other in my foundation collection doesn't do it.

Blends really good

This is seriously the best foundation, and for such a great price! I usually buy high end makeup, but was curious as to how this would work. Let me just say, I am MIND BLOWN. This is replacing my It Cosmetics your skin but better foundation (another good foundation but over double the cost). This goes on beautifully, medium to full buildable coverage, and it last all day! It does dry down which I love! If you wear a mask it will transfer, but the coverage still stays on your face. Its amazing! I have 16+ hour days and at the end of the day, it still looks beautiful! I will for sure be repurchasing when I run out. Great job Loreal!

It's such a nice hydrating foundation. Very natural. It has such nice coverage. I definitely recommend!!!
May from Ca
I usually love that fresh, natural look but that's not what this gives me. It looks heavy on my combo skin and wears off horribly.

I work at an animal shelter so I'm running around and sweaty giving fur babies kisses and it lasts all day by the end of my shift it still looks pretty much the same as when I first put it on
J.T. from Fabulous Las Vegas
Just DON'T. I bought color #455 and it turned my skin orange and made the back of my hand really itchy. It's NOTHING LIKE visible lift. This is the second time I have purchased without trying with SAD results. Also tried Loreal Lumi True Match "Cool, C5, Classic Beige," with the same oz-like results. It's stayed in my makeup box for over a year taking up space, further cluttering my stash. These are just products that waste the better part of a "Jackson" and cause confusion because you don't want to toss something you paid so much for. DON'T DO IT!
Tyra Sage from Nebraska
This formula is so good that it has become the product I compare everything else to. I use it with a damp sponge as both foundation and concealer. I haven't been able to find a concealer that applies so easily without looking dry or creasing under my eyes. I mix 415 and 435. The rosy shades that seem unique to this line are perfect for my fair-light pink toned skin. The Loreal site has a pretty good shade matching/visualization tool. For the price, you really can't beat this product, which is comparable to higher-end formulas.

I'm an ag teacher and today we had a sheep show at the fair. In 109 degree heat this foundation did not move (set with the maybelline fit me powder). I from now on will only by this foundation Bc it says in place even when your sweating so much it can be seen through your jeans.
Vane from Pflugerville
I had always seen this foundation be used so I finally gave it a try and it's amazing, the coverage is buildable and it's very thin in comparison to the Maybelline 24hr stay foundation so it feels lighter it's for sure up there with the Maybelline one!!

When I 1st tried this foundation 2 years. I thought it was so beautiful and wear all day and I Thought "Yes I found my new fav foundation!" But unfortunately, after 3 days of use I started breaking out terribly in cystic acne along my chin. I discontinued use soon after and acne went away. Fast forward 2years later. Decided to give this another try, same results beautiful and last all day, but I broke up badly all over again. Since this was the only thing I changed in routine both times I know it had to be it. Have to say it MUST be the over powering fragrance. Would not recommend for acne prone or sensitive skin.
Molls from St Louis
I adore this foundation. The shade is perfect for me, and it just melts into the skin. It isn't fully matte, but with a little powder it's perfect and doesn't break out my oily, acne prone skin (a rarity in foundations). Would definitely buy again
Alexis from Cincinnati
This is my favorite foundation. It gives great coverage without even looking like I'm wearing foundation. It dries down to a powder finish and doesn't transfer. It stays on for a long time. I have pale skin and the 400 pearl shade is pretty much perfect. It feels like wearing no makeup at all. It doesn't break me out even though I've previously had issues with acne. My only complaint is that it has a fragrance.
I tried a sample of the Lancome Teinte Idole recently and wanted to purchase a bottle, but it was too expensive. Thought I would give this a try and I'm content! The staying power isn't the same as the Lancome one, but it's pretty darn close. It's a smooth, liquidy, medium-weight foundation with medium coverage that can be sheered out or built up to full with a satin-matte, skinlike finish. It lasts a good 7-8 hours before I feel the need to touch up and transfers less than my other foundations do when I wear a mask. Literally everything I want in a foundation (I am super fair w warm undertones, wear shade 400, and have combo skin w oily t zone) The only issues I have are two ingredients- the high amount of denatured alcohol which can be drying, so this won't be an everyday product for me. And it is heavily fragranced. Thankfully the fragrance isn't disgusting (a light floral?), and it disappears quickly upon application. But it isn't necessary and I wish they would remove it. Otherwise, I've found my new drugstore favorite!
