Rated 4.05 out of 5 stars
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!
Based on the marketing information, I thought this was going to be good for my oily skin, but it's not. It's too matte, too oxidizing, and too frustrating to identify your shade.
---It accentuates pores, flaky skin, and imperfections.
---It dries darker than it looks in the tube.
---It's impossible to know what shade to pick. If you go to a brick-and-mortar store, every tube looks almost the same...If you look online, there are NO SHADE DESCRIPTIONS and NO NUMBERING INFORMATION. How are you supposed to know which shades have what undertones? Which shades are light? Which shades are light-medium? Which shades are neutral/pink/peach/yellow? Why is this information not made clearly available?
For reference, I'm normally light-medium, neutral-toned, or sometimes neutral-cool. I wear Medium Beige in Bare Minerals, NC25 in MAC, and 020 Claire in Chanel Lift Lumiere. I picked Pro-Matte shade 103 Nat. Buff, and it's too peachy for me. And it might be marketed as a "demi-matte," but it's too flat and unnatural for me. People would be staring at my foundation, rather than my face----so this is definitely not right for me. I guess I just suckered in by the marketing...

This is my all time favorite foundation. I'm incredibly pale, and most foundations I've tried are too yellow on me. Shade 101 is perfect for me. I use the elf poreless putty primer on my face first, and then mix in mac strobe cream with the foundation. This foundation stays on all day and I'm able to add contour etc on top of it without it moving.

my initial thoughts when I was applying this is that it is very full coverage which scared me at first because I'm not a super full coverage kind of girl but surprisingly it fell so light on the face. i didnt even need any concealor under my eyes but added some just to brighten it up.I kept forgetting I had foundation on because it felt like nothing on my face..I would definitely recommend giving this a try..also I had some dry spots on my face and it didn't stick to them..

Tried this for the first time today, in the lightest color, I remember trying it a few years ago and thought it was so orange and patchy, but not anymore. New lightest shade 099 is a super close skin match for my light skin with slight yellow undertones. Foundation is now a great match and looks beautiful on skin, definitely full coverage. Very excited to keep using!

I have oily skin and this foundation made my skin look flawless for several hours! The only thing I don't like is that it's really thick and it does tingle a little. But overall I'm so happy I found a product that makes my face have a full coverage look with little to no oil!!!
chio from california
best foundation ive ever bought im basically crying. its the perfect shade and it blends sooo well to my skin. my forehead is typically really oily and with this holy meatballs its so matte. the thing is tho u gotta use a wet beauty blender like not too dry but thats it im so happy with my purchase. ALSO IT COVERS EVERYTHING LIKE EVEN MY UPPER LIP COLOR AND RED PIMPLES
Haley from New York
This used to be my everyday go to foundation. I would wear it for every occasion. Recently, they changed the formula and it has not been the same. The shades changed as well as the product. I really wish that they would bring back their old formula because it was the only foundation I found to be perfect on my skin!
Elizabeth from ATL
This foundation has a nice texture. It felt a little dry going on, like it dried fast and didn't blend well. But once I applied it, my face almost felt like I didn't have makeup on. Then It started to burn. Not as badly as some of the other reviews, but enough for me to wash it off after about 30 minutes. My skin isn't usually overly sensitive. But this was too much. It's going back.
Anna from Utah
This used to be my go-to foundation then I had an allergic reaction to the new formula. Won't be repurchasing.
Alicia from Rosemount, MN
It says on the product as well as the description online "Matte finish hides imperfections and minimizes the appearance of pores" I beg to differ! This shows literally every imperfection and every pore.
Gordis from El Paso tx
Had never tried it
As soon as I put it on
My face burned
It started stinging
Returned it ASAP
That's not normal my face to burn

I've been using this foundation for about 6 years now and I always seem to come back to it. I have yet to find a end foundation that works best for my combination/oily skin like the way this foundation does. It's long wearing and you can build it up if you're going for a full coverage look. It does not feel heavy on your face and has never looked valey on my skin. I have loved this foundation for soo long. Only con is i think they're changing their formula because the new bottle i bought came with a red top versus the one I've been using for years comes with the black top which i can't seem to find anymore. I hope they don't discontinue it because i love this foundation.

Is really good for oily skin. It's very Mayte foundation it sets for long period. It looks so smooth on skin.

My go to no matter what !!!
Marta from California
Full coverage, easy to blend, blends well with either brush or beauty sponge, pairs well with almost any product to me. Any time I change my foundation from this to something else I can definitely tell. I have a lot of acne and suffer from rosacea so I needed to find a foundation that covered all of it. Also needed a foundation that wasn't dewy but wasn't too dry since I have combination skin, this is my holy grail. A must have!

I really love this foundation. It really gave me the matte look that I look for in a foundation.
GG from New York, NY
Hottest day of NY & I wore this for a bridal shower. Applied at 8am by 3pm when I left my face was still perfect. Literally had crazy rough s*x with my man & DIDNT break that bad- only needed some light touch ups. Went to dinner & hung out with my family all night AND IT STILL LOOKED AMAZING. If you're oily// combination like I am this will be your best friend if you need to be on point
Tater from Arkansas
I love the Pro-Glow and decided to try the matte to control shine and oiliness throughout my 12 hour day. Unfortunately this one settled in my fine lines around my eyes and mouth even after I set with loose powder. The formula is very heavy and felt drying. I did return this product.
Kayss from Springfield, Nj
Literally loveeeeee this foundation. Matte, great coverage & literally melts in your skin. I use this as my base foundation & then add powder foundation. The best!
Annabelle from NC
I used to LOVE this foundation...and then they redid the formula. When I repurchased this foundation after the formula was redone I hated it! 103 was my winter shade and now it is seriously 3 shades lighter than it was before. The formula is also a lot thicker than it used to be and I feel like it didn't blend well at all.
Ysenia from Arizona
I had high hopes since I'm very oily. I'll be wet like in a hour. I have huge pores so this actually sinks into the pores and created texture in my fine lines.
Only upside is the coverage which was full/medium.
Face started feeling warm and bothered after a few hours which has happened to me with other foundations (might be my own skin sensitivity)
Gma6 from Kingsport, TN
The lid on this tube was red. The last one was black. I think it is old. It is thick and hard to spread. I would like sunscreen in it. The last tube was easier to spread and thinner.
Makenna from Austin, TX
I live in the south, work in a restaurant, and I'm in dance. This foundation holds up to heat and sweat quiet well. It stays well and looks flawless for hours. My sisters and mom use this foundation too because it's so nice for the price. Only time I have had it not look great is if the primer or setting spray doesn't agree with the foundation, or I caked to much on. I'd avoid primers with oil and hydrating setting sprays, they can cause it to break up and not set right. I currently use the elf putty primmer, Lancome powder compact, and the elf setting spray with the foundation and I always get compliments on my skin. And a use if a makeup sponge makes in blend like a dream.
Alexis from Michigan
The best foundation I've ever tried, hands down. I have tried a lot of different ones, from drugstore to high end and always come back to this one. I recently tried a Mac foundation that was supposed to be like this, but the Mac one is no where near the quality as L'Oréal Infallible. Super matte, full coverage, and works with any concealer and powder combo. Highly recommend!
Mi from Fresno
Love this product thought it was my little secret but boy was I wrong everywhere I go it's sold out. It's amazing I'm definitely stocking up this time. Kinda miss the old formula tho
