Reviews for L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, Golden Beige  1 oz
People say Loreal Paris is really similar to Too Faced.
I use 101 & 103
I really like this foundation. One of my favorite YouTube make up artist uses it a lot as her drugstore foundation… Unfortunately most of the stores around me don't carry the lighter colors – the lightest color I could find is 103 natural bath which is quite a bit too dark for my skin. I ordered the 101 classic Ivory and it is much better. I have pretty fair skin so the 101 classic Ivory is the best shade for me during the wintertime I have found. I think that when summer comes around again I will probably order the 102 color once I have a bit of a tan. Right now as my tan is wearing off but isn't fully gone I mix three parts of the 101 with one part of the 103. I have noticed that the lighter 101 classic Ivory shade has it quite a bit less coverage than the darker shade… I find that I get the best coverage by applying my general face with a brush and then I use the bottom of a beauty blender to go over any areas with a little more foundation where I think I need more coverage.
Not full coverage but great for quick on the go make up and buildable for work and occasions
For reference I use W7 in the L’Oréal true match and my skin type is combination and oily in summer and has a nuetral .I mixed this 109 with 108 to get the right color. To start this is in no way full coverage at all. I have a very light acne scar and this doesn’t not cover it at all! If you want real full coverage this is not for you. If you want light, medium or buildable this will work for you. The finish is really pretty and if you use setting powder it doesn’t transfer too much on fabric masks. On medical masks it transfers more. Overall I got this on sale but it’s worth it at full price even though I bought 2. It reminds me a little of the old urban decay naked formula. For application I use 108 as a highlight/ concealer and 109 as a light “contour” and then I combine them for all over the face. 109 reminds me of cadiz my NARS in terms of warmth. Or a slightly lighter version of maple by too faced born this way.
EXCELLENT COVERAGE AT A GREAT PRICE...
I know its hard to try a new makeup overline but this one is well worth the attempt. I recommend holding the bottles up to your face at your local CVS pharmacy or Walmart first, the next time you are out n about running errands. Then write down the color and come back to Amazon to purchase in order to get the best price. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the full coverage that glides on softly. You only need a little to go a long ways. I ordered 2 right away in order to get the special of half off the 2nd one, which made me very happy! As i have mature skin it has become combination, a little dry at times especially in the Fall/Winter. Also, i needed one shade lighter than normal due to this time of year too. My go to fave brand, It Cosmetics, is soooo grossly expensive that especially due to needing to save up for the Holidays n Birthdays, i no longer could afford to order. I am so glad i tried the L'OREAL INFALLIBLE MAKEUP and that it had a special offer to boot. That actually was a big choice decider in trying it. Also, on my Smartnews there was an article on the top Makeups that actually do what they state they will, this was #2! I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tried n true makeup for full coverage. ENJOY ALL N KEEP SAFE.
Love it! You need to shake it.
I almost didn't get this because of some of the reviews saying it didn't spread well, it dried fast, it was too runny, etc. The answer to all of these issues seems to be shaking it first. I had those same issues but then I started shaking it to mix it up first. Once I started doing that I didn't have any issues. It goes on smooth, I have plenty of time to blend, I can build on it. It's not a full coverage but it's pretty dang close. If not blended or set well it does oxidize slightly but definitely doesn't turn my skin orange at all. This is by far the BEST foundation for this price point. I don't find it to be too matte at all (I mean it is MATTE, so I don't know what some reviewers were expecting...), it lasts a full day and I usually get a little oily shin in the afternoons and I don't with this at all. Looks natural and really smooths out my face and features. I've been using this for a while now and don't anticipate changing anytime soon. I've tried a lot of foundations over the years and for this price point, I feel it's the best. Of course, everyone's skin is different and their preferences are different (some like more of shimmer or satin look, this is matte so if that's not what you want, look for something else). I have since found just amazing reviews on multiple sites by people even comparing to foundations in the $50-$100 price point with no real noticeable difference. So if you are looking for a medium to full coverage matte foundation I encourage you to give i... Read More
Works For Me!
I have very oily skin, but a dry t-zone. I use this foundation on areas of my face with broken blood vessels. Using just my fingertips to apply, It covers perfectly, without looking too heavy. I can use powder over it to 'seal the deal' and I'm set for the entire day. This make up stays in place, without rubbing off on anything, until i remove it at night, using just a wet, hot washcloth. The color if perfect for my fair skinned, red headed complexion. I also am able to use this to cover broken blood vessels on my legs, if needed. My mom uses it on her arms, as she is prone to bruising, due to medications she is on. So glad I decided to try this foundation, a little goes a long way, for me. =)
This is one of my all time favorite foundations I can't even remember how many times I've repurchased this. I have oily skin and this helps keep that at bay throughout the day. I dot the foundation all over my face and then blend everything out with the loreal makeup sponge. It gives FULL coverage without being too heavy or looking cakey. Ive had no issues with clogging pores or any other reactions with this. It sets to a full matte that you don't even really need powder to set it. Love love love this foundation definitely recommend.
Go-to inexprensive brand
Okay, so I usually buy a UD foundation which can be quite expensive, so when I don't want to spend that much money or my 2.5 is out-of-stock, this is my go-to brand. I love this foundation because it is a little bit more natural (but still has a matte texture), but goes with my skin tone fairly well. Plus the price is a great factor too. I would recommend for anyone wanting to try this, to actually go into a store and test it with their face to see which shade coordinates with your skin tone before you buy it online. Also, this foundation also lasts for a very long time like my UD product, but I use a beautyblender original to keep waste to a minimum as well. This does have a medium coverage, so if you are looking for something more covering (or less), I would go with something a little different. The good thing about this foundation is that on my skin (combo of dry and oily), it doesn't cause oiliness nor dryness to my skin. It also doesn't make fine lines and wrinkles look more apparent. So all in all, I love this brand as well as this foundation!
Excellent Non Shinny Foundation
Great foundation. Not shinny and looks natural. I have Olive skin that can look a little drab. The Natural Beige 105 is perfect. The Sun Beige 106 is great too when I have a little tan or to make a contrast cheekbone effect. Both put a little brightness/spark to my skin color. Applies easy and stays on my skin all day. I am 59 so my face is no longer oily but still shines in the T zones. I still have to pat the T zones but once I do, the foundation stays on and stays looking great!
I have always used good, very expensive makeup but was having a problem with it turning into a mudslide on my face in the summer so this summer I did some product testing to see if I could find a product that would stay put in the heat and this is the only one that has worked for me. Of course I use primer first and setting powder too but I was very surprised at how well this makeup stays put.
