L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory swatches and wear test, review on beautyjudy

I’ve been impressed with the drugstore foundations I’ve tried recently, and L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation is no exception!

This demi-matte finish foundation comes in a wide, slender tube that fits nicely in the makeup bag I carry in my purse. I’ve been using it for nearly a month now and it’s still going strong.

Infallible Pro-Matte is a liquidy and light foundation, it blends very beautifully with a brush and although it is described as medium coverage, I feel it provides me full. It promises 24-hour wear but thankfully, I’ve never had to put it to that kind of test!

I use the shade 101, Classic Ivory.

I’m naturally ruddy from my rosacea. Here I am with half a face of foundation:

My face provides a good canvas for this type of comparison, you can really see how well something covers because my skin tone is so red.

Here’s my full face:

Overall, this foundation was great for my skin. As a reminder, my skin type tends to be oily in my T-zone by mid-morning/lunchtime, with some dry, flaking skin on my forehead. Definitely a combo skin but leaning oily in summer. I sought every mattifying face product I could this summer!

As far as wear, this wears great. I had some wear at my chin at the end of the night, which would be 12+ hours of wear, but nothing that would stop me from using this foundation. Between this and my Revlon Youth FX Fill + Blur foundation, if I needed to stick to drugstore for foundations, I absolutely would be happy!

And finally, the finished look:

You can find L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in lots of places. I got mine at CVS. It’s suggested retail price is $12.99 but you can catch sales and get it even cheaper.

Have you tried this foundation yet? I love how it feels going onto my skin, and how lightweight it is throughout the day with such amazing coverage! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it below if you’ve tried it, and whether this is something your skin could use!
