So far this is the best foundation I've come across for my skin with the best coverage and staying power. I first bought a shade too dark for my skin but went back and bought a shade lighter and it was a perfect match. I like the little pump it has and it's really easy to apply. I haven't had any problems with my skin breaking out and I've used this product for months. I will definently buy this again =)
I will very rarely say this about any product but this foundation is horrible. It looks okay at the beginning of the day if you don't mind it being somewhat mask-like. By the end of the day it just looks so fake. It settles right into the pores and leaves the rest of my skin looking red and gross. I've been using this for 3 weeks and I have to use so much to get any coverage that I'm already running out! It's heavy coverage or nothing with this stuff. Application is tricky, streaky, yuck.
I have never broken out from a foundation....until I had the misfortune to buy this one. I developed HUGE cysts on my face where I applied the product ( I didn't apply it all over so I knew it was the foundation which caused the break-outs.
I also concur with the previous writers who said the product looks orange/weird. Looked perfectly fine when first applied and then.... the peculiar transformation. I would advise against buying it...even if it was the only foundation on the planet. Ghastly.
WORST PRODUCT EVER.
I cannot express my hate for this. I have oily skin, and this made my face an oil slick. The shade I originally bought was too light, and the next shade over was too dark. It didn't blend well, and it made me feel dirty. Please, no one waste your money on this one.
I didn’t have a good experience with this foundation. The first time I applied it, it looked extremely orange and when I stepped outside I noticed how it made all my imperfections - acne scars, blemishes more apparently. I might as well been make-up free it would of looked way better. It feels very thick and although I tried it for a month in hopes that it would get better, it only got more orange and I would literally run home to get this stuff out of my face. Definitely WON’T purchase again, (its actually pretty expensive, about 14 bucks) and I am saddened that I waited so long to return since I can no longer do so.
YET my mother's friend loves this foundation but I think it well depends on the person's skin since she’s never suffered from acne, unlike myself and is a tad bit older than me so maybe that has something to do with it.
I bought Infallible in Classic Ivory. This is a perfect color match for me (PPP). I was looking for a long-wearing foundation which isn't as hard to take off as Revlon Colorstay (even with the new SoftFlex it is really hard to wash/scrub off) and while this does have good staying power, good shade match for me, and is quite a bit easier to get off than Colorstay, it turns my face into an oil slick within a couple hours . . . the crazy thing is I don't normally have skin this oily! Normally only my nose will get a little shiny, but with Infallible it was like my face had a mirror finish. Also if I do not apply either moisturizer or primer first, it not only turns oily but also looks grainy and caked. Yuck! So the oil-face thing is the only problem I have with this foundation. Otherwise it's an almost-winner. I even like the packaging which is a glass pump bottle with a clear plastic cap. Very spill-proof and sanitary. I will use this bottle up while hagning around the house or making quick trips to the grocery store, but for more than that I'll be using my good ol' dependable Revlon Colorstay.
My mom gave me a barely-used bottle of L'Oreal Infallible makeup because it looked "weird" on her. She's right, there's something about the finish that always looks unnatural.. it's a bit too shiny for a full-coverage foundation. I guess it's supposed to give you a natural glow, but it falls short of that goal. The coverage is great, and it lasts a long time, but I won't buy it again.
I was wearing this foundation for the first time and noticed my boyfriend looking at me funny. He asked what I had done to my face (thanks a lot!) - it was so shiny and unflattering, even though I had found a very good color match. Not only was it shiny, but it maximized my pores and within two days I was breaking out. I have oily skin but can usually keep breakouts under control - but this had me breaking out in places I normally don't have a problem (on my cheeks and on my nose). Waste of money, I am tossing the whole bottle. If you want a drugstore brand, stick with Revlon.
I think the key to this foundation (I'm using 603/Classic Ivory) is applying it with your fingers (quickly), and applying powder afterward. Without these two things, the foundation is a disaster. I was ready to toss it at first. However, I have been using it as stated above, and with the Physician's formula loose mineral powder in Translucent/Light, and the results are amazing. My skin has not broken out, it is not oily (it's a little "dewy" at the end of the day, which is fine), and My skin looks better than it has in a long time.
I definitely like this better than Estee Lauder's Double Wear. This is less thick, more breathable, and the coverage is about the same (maybe better). I would say try it, but don't forget the necessity of a good powder. And skip the foundation brush!
I have combination-oily, very sensitive and acne-prone skin.
UPDATE: this worked for a couple weeks, but then it started breaking me out! It didn't give me tiny zits, but several big, painful cystic type zits--the kind I occasionally get under my chin. This makeup caused them all over! Horrible!
I really thought i was going to like this, it looked so promising. After about 3 days i started breaking out! Not to mention how oily it made my face , i did however notice that i did not look AS tired as before with my past foundations. This stuff is just too heavy for me, it feels so greasy after about 8 hours of wearing it. Im still using this currently but i will not buy it again. My face is just too greasy from this stuff, i have normal skin and it has never been greasy. Dont waste your money on this, will probally break you out. :(
