This is a really good foundation! It's a cheaper alternative to MAC studiofix (which broke me out and permanently stained two of my favorite shirts, arrrghhh!), and Makeup Forever Duo Matte Foundation (which is nice, but costs too much for my personal liking).
After a failed tryst with Revlon's One Step Complextion Foundation (left me oil and had a horrible chemical smell), I decided to try this one by L'Oreal since I love their lipsticks and eyeshadows. So glad that I did! This is my new staple foundation. I have both the liquid and compact in sun beige----definitely a true, perfect match for my skin tone!
I bought this in C3 creamy natural. It's a pretty good match and you know it's so hard to match it up in the store. It does blend very well. I was very surprised. I didn't think it would work but it has been pretty good for me so far. I don't wear much foundation usually but sometimes I need some extra coverage. I have combination skin and am acne prone. I think it's a decent product for the price. I like applying it with a foundation brush and then use a good powder with it. My foundation never stays on very long and this one the same so I can't judge that fairly.
I would recommend giving it a try.
I only bought this Foundation yesterday, so i've only just used it this morning.. I have C2 Apricot Ivory, my skin is fair-medium and i think the colour is slightly too dark for me, i always use Rimmel stay matte powder after applying foundation anyway so that has bought the colour back to normal.. This is very very light liquid, and im used to thicker coverage as my skin at 17, isnt that great. I only have a couple of marks on my face, but the foundation didnt even cover that enough for my liking. I normally use an Avon foundation and my skin always looks totally FLAWLESS after applying it, and it lasts all day! (I work at a hospital so there is alot of rushing about, ie getting hot and botherd and yet at the end of the day my skin is still perfect..). I think i had hoped too much of L'oreal on this one. :( I think this foundation would be great when my skin gets better, but until then its a no no!! xxx
I've been wearing this for a while, simply because I haven't found the time to go out and buy something new. I'm at school full-time, obviously not very strenuous or anything, yet somehow by the time I get home the foundation is almost completely gone. I have to buy make-up in the lightest shade possible, and yet this, like others, still looked very fake and orange on me. It is very oily and wipes off easily. I personally don't recommend it.
This makeup is awesome! I can’t believe I passed it up so many times thinking it wouldn’t work for me. Ever since my HG foundation (Max Factor Facefinity) was discontinued, I have been on the hunt for a decent drugstore-brand long-wearing foundation that would work with my super-pale skin. Only the L’Oreal Infallible was light enough, so I have used that for the last two years even though it SUCKS. Finally, when I couldn’t stand the gross separation and end-of-day-orange-mask any longer, I broke down and bought True Match in Porcelain, W1. Now all I can say is, why the *&%$ did I wait so long? When I first brought it home, I was still in “This is going to be crap” mode and really hated the thin consistency (it is very watery compared to Infallible). But then, to my shock, it went on smoothly and hid all my imperfections! I was concerned about the concept of “letting my own skin show through”, because, let’s face it, my own skin doesn’t look so hot at the moment. But it covered up all the problems (acne, eczema) and left me with a beautiful, even-toned finish that actually made me PROUD to have china-doll skin. I kept checking it in my mirror all day (using blotting sheets at 4 hour intervals as usual) and you could have knocked me over with a feather when I returned home 12 hours after application and still looked good. Just to be sure it wasn’t a fluke, I have been using this for 2 full weeks with the exact same results before reviewing. THIS should be marketed as L’Oreal’s long-wear foundation, not that icky Infallible. Sadly, I did have to take away 1 lippie because that glorious pump bottle design isn’t available yet, but if that changes I will update to a full 5 lippies. Love this stuff! continued >>
I'm surprised this got so many bad reviews! I'm super fair skinned, and could never find a foundation that was pale enough, and cool-toned enough, to match my skin. Everything else I've tried has looked too much like a mask, or has just been yellow and gross on me.
I use the absolute lightest cool shade (alabaster), and the lightest neutral concealer every day. A little goes a long way, and it leaves a powdery finish. Only moderate coverage, though, so acne-prone skin probably isn't going to get much from this product. But for those that just need a bit of evening out, I think this is great!
Coming from a girl who only buys MAC, Too Faced, NARS, and Urban Decay products.. this is the ONLY drugstore brand make-up I use. Why? Because it does what the higher brand make-up brand products already do. It gives me GREAT coverage (I would say medium but I dont like too much coverage) and it matches up with my skin tone. I don't understand the negative reviews here! It's great foundation at a great cost. My mom and my sisters use this too, along with other friends of mine. I personally haven't found a higher cost foundation that satisfies me like this one does.
Okay first of all there is nothing, I mean nothing good about this product!!! It is absolutely crap!!!!
It is expensive for a drugstore brand, at £12.00 in Boots.
It turns orange 10 mins after application.
It goes all oily and slides off after 2 hours.
Rubs off at the slightest touch.
Great Product! I use it in Sun Beige W6 and it blends perfectly! It's hard for me to find a foundation that blends with my skin because I am honey colored but this stuff deffinitely works!
Not quite my HG...but closer than anything has gotten. It can be a little fake looking and I don't get the whole true match thing but for coverage and staying power I can't fault it. Having said that it doesn't like my bronzer over it and my bronzer kinda gets patchy which it didn't do with my previous foundations. It doesn't clog my pores either...even the foundations that say they won't sometimes do. Very happy but keeping an eye on the market.
