I used to love this product! I've been switching between Revlon Colourstay and this as my staple foundations for the past two or three years. However, as with many other reviewers, I've found L'Oreal have changed the product and am completely disappointed with the latest batch. Positives are that the packaging is pretty and I have no issues finding a colour match. It also looks pretty damn good when freshly applied. On the downside, this makes my skin itch badly and I've ended up getting the occasional red bump on my face. I also find that it gets very, very oily very, very quickly and is unsuitable for a full day at work. I don't have particularly oily skin either but it just seems to melt off my forehead, nose and chin. Have ordered my first batch of mineral makeup but have reverted back to an old colourstay I had until it arrives. Some advice to L'Oreal: if a product isn't broken, don't try to fix it!
I think I grabbed the wrong color and that can make such I difference I know...that being said, so far so good. It is a litlle heavier feeling than my beloved Revlon mousse makeup, but the coverage is great and long lasting. We are in the middle of a crazy heat wave and this stuff is still standing- I have been sweating my ASS off and it is still here. No bad...has a dewier appearance than I am used to, but not in a bad way.. Will update about breakouts and whatnot.
High coverage and good color match. One of the best drugstore foundations on my oily skin.
This is now a staple in my daily make up routine. I have searched far and wide for a product to match my skin tone and I have found it in this. the coverage is excellent when you use moisturiser underneath and it itsnt patchy and blends in perfectly with my skin.
I bought this product because i was watching a few videos on youtube and thought it would be a good foundation to try.
Wow do i regret it. First of all Ģ10 was pretty expensive for a drugstore foundation. I suppose i got suckered in because it says '16 hours long lasting', I like a foundation to last all day! because it saves me spending time to touch up and also saves me carrying make up whereever i go.
I'll start of with the positive things i have to say about this product.
- The colour was lovely :) it is a little orange if you apply too much but otherwise it's a nice colour.
- It goes on your skin really smoothly and also give you an air brush finish.
The negative things about this product is....
- The packaging, it seemed like once you've used most of the product you couldn't get whatever was left at the bottom because the bottle was too hard to open and awkward.
- how if says it lasts for 16 hours when it doesn't. Which also counts as false advertising. But i actually have evidence of it not staying on i would show pictures but i don't have time to do them right now sorry, but here's my evidence. I was going to meet my boyfriend at the bus stostop, so i put this foundation on, walked to the bus stop, got on the bus, then got into town which was 20 minutes away and my foundation had already fallen off my face. So that proves it's not the best at long lasting.
My overall opinion is if you need your foundation to stay on all day this isn't the foundation for you but if you only need it to stay on for about 2 hours then it's all good for you :)
I hope you enjoyed this review and maybe check out revlon colour stay as it's a better foundation then this :)
I love this foundation. It is medium to full coverage, lasts all day without turning orange or fading, and seems to help mattify my skin somewhat. It's easy to apply, and the pump means the product stays sanitary. This has become my holy grail foundation.
Really like this product. Use to use CoverGirl's foundation for oily skin, but it ails in comparison. The pump is nice - makes for more precise application. Works really well with a moisturizer underneath but not so well without one - might be why some people think it's goopy or thick. It's also easier and more efficient to apply it with a foundation brush.
The thin consistency surprises me, with the medium/full-coverage it gives. I see someone mentioning it being thick and gooky, must be a bad/old batch. Well carrying on, the moisturizer and/or primer you use will make ALL the difference in the finish. I love Clinique DDML + BE Prime Time foundation primer. Then, I apply Infallible (603 Classic Ivory -NC15/NW15ish) section by section being it kind of dries like Revlon Colorstay liq. For even more coverage (yea I love full coverage), I top this with RevIon CS Mineral Powder Foundation (fair/light). Oh, as with all powders, I use an e/s brush to dab, tap off, and gently apply around my aging eyes to avoid it going on unevenly and accentuating fine lines there. Looks smooth and flawless!! No one believes my age...always get carded. Did I mention it lasts at least 14 hours here in the muggy FL heat? Well, at least with my product/mu combo. (I did try it w/o the primer and it melted/wore off within 4 hours. But most foundations need to be used in conjunction with other products according to your specific skin type ect to look amazing and last all day.)
I bought this because my heroine Milla Jovovich was in the commercial ad =D Yes... Iīd even buy an umbrella in the desert, if she were printed on the umbrella... Iīm a retard, I know =D
But this just didnīt work for me. Though I liked the package with the pump (I think itīs more hygienic for some odd reason) and the colourmatch was ok. It looked very cakey, even though I applied a very small amount, just too thick texture.. like a paste or something. And it didnīt even out the skin at all, looked overlayered in the end, even though there was only a small amount as I said. Wasnīt infallible for me at all. And the worst of all: I had breakouts from this, so this foundation ended straight in the trash basket.
For me, I will give a good rating on a foundation that actually matches my skin without having to mix. This one has good, opaque coverage, SPF, lasts through the day and through workouts, and has a decent color match so that I don't have to buy and mix two foundations. I have this in Natural Beige, which will probably not work for me come winter, but for summer, it's a good shade. I rarely have to touch up with this one, but if I do, I have the Infallible compact that I carry around with me.
