REVIEW: The Best Drugstore Foundation I’ve Ever Tried!

I don’t usually enjoy drugstore foundations.

To be honest, I’ve become somewhat of a makeup snob – but for *valid* reasons! Drugstore brands don’t cater to olive-yellow toned women like me and it’s nearly impossible to find a formula that works with my combo-oily skin without making me look super cakey. Also, the enormous list of potentially bad-for-you ingredients gives me chills. So I retreat back to the mothership where I feel safest buying makeup – Sephora.

That is, until I heard about L’Oreal’s Infallible line. The Pro-Matte and the Pro-Glow are talked about so much amongst the beauty community – a yellow toned foundation! Luminous! Matte! Lightweight! Long-lasting! It seemed too good to be true…


L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte

Cost: $12.99 @Ulta

Finish: demi-matte

Coverage: medium

My Shade: 105 Natural Beige
Medium warm-toned yellow (a touch too red for me)

– Super lightweight
– Sets to a natural demi-matte
– Good for oily skin
– 8-9 hr wear

– I got around 8-9 hrs out of it before it began to break up a little around my oiliest parts (t-zone). This is great, especially for a drugstore foundation, but it’s definitely not a 24 hr foundation like L’Oreal claims it to be
– Can cling to dry spots*

My Rating: 9/10

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow

Cost: $12.99 @Ulta

Finish: radiant, luminous

Coverage: medium

My Shade: 205 Natural Beige
Medium yellow-toned olive

– Radiant, not shimmery or sparkly finish
– Gives you a healthy glow
– Looks & feels very natural
– Good for dry skin
– Great color match for yellow-olive toned skin!

– I definitely can’t get 24 hr wear out of this, especially since I have oilier skin*
– Needs to be set with powder, or it will transfer

My Rating: 9/10

There has been some controversy about whether or not L’Oreal still tests on animals. This is a statement they made on that topic.


* I like to use both foundations since I have combination skin. I use the Pro-Matte on my t-zone, and the Pro-Glow on my cheeks. I get the best wear-time and finish by applying it this way. 🙂
