L’Oreal recently released a new foundation: the Infallible Pro-Glow that retails for $12.99. The L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation is supposed to have medium coverage, radiant finish, air-light texture and wears up to 24 hours. I have incredibly oily skin so I was not planning on purchasing this product until I saw how flawless it looked on my friend Lisa. (For those of you that do not know our backstory: we met when she did my wedding makeup! She is a pro makeup artist and used to be a MAC trainer so she is awesome at makeup and teaching others about makeup). We decided it would be fun to collaborate and each review this product on our different skin-types. Check out Lisa’s review of this product on her YouTube channel here.
Shade Range: There are 12 different shades and they are definitely geared more towards light to medium skin tones. I have tried shades 206, 207 and 208 and they are VERY similar. If you have light to medium skin then you will have PLENTY of shades to choose from. If you have dark skin, then your options are severely limited.
Application: This product is somewhat “liquidy” but applied so nicely. It evened out my skin-tone, provided a nice coverage, and looked very natural. It looked like “my skin but better” with a subtle, healthy glow. It felt very lightweight on my skin as well. The only negative is that when I looked very closely at my nose, it really emphasized my pores. It’s not noticeable unless you are VERY close, so I was not too concerned. The rest of my makeup applied very nicely on top of this foundation as it was not super tacky feeling.
Wearability: To be 100% honest, I have to blot my makeup after a few hours of wear no matter what foundation/primer/powder combo I use. I used to only buy super-matte foundations but once I realized that I have to blot and touch-up no matter the finish, I have started branching out and trying different finishes. I did have to blot with the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation sooner than I did with my more matte foundations.
BOTTOM LINE: If you are looking for a foundation that provides great coverage yet looks very natural with a subtle glow – you will absolutely love the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation. If you have oily skin you WILL need to blot throughout the day. For me, it was a little too dewy after a few hours so I plan to mix it with my L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte. I think the combination of the two will be the perfect foundation for my oily skin during the Summer.
