this foundation does not get cakey, it is SO GOOD i apply it with a damp sponge. i actually wear a color that is too dark on me, the lighter ones were all too pink so i got nude eige despite the fact i am NC15. i hae really red undertones and the lighter shades emphasized them. i hae chanel vitaluminere aqua and love it, it has no pink undertones, but it sweats off and gets cakey and comes off so easily. this foundation stays put, and it matte. it covers acne and i use it as a concealer and it works for my undereyes. lately i have been mixing it with lighter foundations to try to adjust the color. it has great coverage and you can build it up to have really intense coverage. never breaks me out either. love.
This is the one foundation that I've come across that I actually really, really love. Usually I'll just buy any medium-full coverage foundation based on what's on sale or what my mom gets me. But this is the one I'll be repurchasing. As someone who always has at least one blemish (and several minor scars/discolored spots) on my face, I'm always looking for a foundation that gives great coverage, but that usually comes with the risk of looking cakey. With this foundation, it's buildable coverage and yet is very thin and light on the skin. Sometime's I'll use my MAC 187 brush to apply it, but it's so thin and easy to blend that I often just use my hands. Because it does dry kind of fast though, I always apply a generous amount of moisturizer right before I put it on. Oh, and this has never broken me out, as far as I know.
I picked this up on recommendation from a YouTube guru. She is quite pale like me and swears by this foundation. It wasn't terrible but it darkened as it dried and the lightest shade is pink based so it turns really pink and doll faced. The finish is nice and it blends nicely. It looks great on if you can find your shade. I don't know how well it holds up because it was really awfull color on me. Adding powder only made it worse. If I somehow get a drastic tan, I may pick up another shade.
Great product. It has the longest staying power, truly living up to its name. I have normal skin and it seems to give me a very natural finish. I took away a lippie because of the shade selection. This is most likely the fault of my very pale, almost white skin, but the lightest shade is a shade too dark. That being said, I've never found a shade light enough for my skin. Overall, this is a great foundation. I would recommend this to anyone after a long-wear medium coverage foundation.
I really love this product!!!!!!! I went to the drugstore to get concealer and meet this girl and she kept raving about this product. So of course I had to get it, and it now its one of my favorite drugstore foundations.It is pretty expensive for a drugstore product but i think it pays off because of how well it actually is. It blends really well,the colors are great it LASTS ALL DAY. It doesn't make me break out and covers blemishes fairly well i still wear concealer on problem areas but it evens my skin tone.
This is the perfect product for acne prone skin that is sensitive and oily. I have tried almost every make up and this is the only one that does not break me out. As a busy, no nonsense, somewhat lazy person.. i dont mind putting this on because I need the high SPF anyway. And the wide range of colors is always nice.
It doesnt ruboff as easily on clothes either... its not too heavy, not too light. You dont need a primer or a powder, though I do use a bit of benzoyl peroxide treatment first.
I HATE MAKEUP.. but I need it. And this is the only one that works in humidity, and for marathons days. If you go for a run.... in Miami and take a dip in the ocean, chances are this makeup will still be on your face, controlling shine,making you look better... and leaving you with no zits the next day. All other department store brands make me break out within 10 hrs.
I respond to most makeups in the same way as other with sensitive skin e.g., mineral makeup breaks me out and makes my skin itch, etc. So if you have skin like mine, you have to try this. Theres no reason to pay more than $15 for a great product.
I really like this product, for a couple different reasons. I definitely like the fact that it is so long lasting, the only way this comes off is if I forget I'm wearing it and accidentally scratch my face. It has great coverage and makes my face look perfect.
It doesn't oxidize, which is amazing because this is pretty much the only foundation I've ever tried that doesn't make me look bright orange. I have experienced a little of the greasiness that other reviewers described, but I usually wear tons of powder so this doesn't really affect me too much.
I think the worst part about this foundation is that if I apply it carelessly it looks terrible. I have to apply it to every part of my face, otherwise the spots I miss are very obvious.
At this point I think I am going to continue buying this until I find something that works better.
I've been using L'Oreal foundation for years. My first foundation was a loreal all in one compact. Since then I have tried various L'oreal powders and liquids and I've never been disappointed. I find them really easy to apply and I've never had any trouble finding a colour to suit my skin. I'm really lazy and have been known to go to bed after a night out without removing my make-up, and I've never had any skin problems or breakouts. I usually just apply this with my fingers (who needs a make-up brush haha) and it blends really well and looks fine. Dries with a matte finish and always looks natural... never greasy. Lasts all day and gives a full coverage. Overall I'm very happy with this product and will continue to use it.
I was eyeing this foundation for months on L'oreals website. I am someone who loves long-lasting makeup because i have a very busy life between work and college, and touching up in the bathroom isn't something i like to do. I am a big fan of the Maybelline 24 hour foundation! I saw this foundation one day at target and decided to go ahead and buy it - their are not many reviews about it on youtube, to my surprise, so I took a dive. I paid around 14-15 dollars for it, which is very expensive for drugstore - i could have went to MAC and bought a lipstick or eyeshadow! Anyway - I tried this out for about 3 weeks and it was awful. I have extremely dry skin but this foundation made me look like a grease slick. I was embarrassed when I visited my father for the first time in months and he never notices makeup - but he said to me "You have too much makeup on, its caked to the side of your face." i was shocked and surprised AND EMBARRASSED. I looked in the mirror - and sure enough - the foundation oxidized into an orangey color on the right side of my face - and my setting powder clung to it in an unattractive way, and it looked GREASY. I finally had enough of this crap and threw it away. Such a shame too because I had high hopes and expectations for it - being a customer of L'oreal since...forever. The only thing nice about it is the packaging. Its glass, and it comes with a pump. I wouldn't recommend this product for oily or dry skin - its too greasy and it does not last a long time either! like it claims to. this was such a let down.
This is the only foundation I will wear. It is medium/full coverage. It doesn't look cakey no matter how much you put on. It lasts forever. It's actually a struggle to wash it off at the end of the day.
I don't get why people say Revlon Colorstay is so amazing. It lasts on my skin for about 30 minutes, and my skin is normal/dry. I have actually fallen asleep after a night out with L'oreal Infallible on (I know, I shouldn't sleep with makeup on), and the next morning it looked just as good as when I put it on the night before.
