FINISH: All-Day Glow
WHAT IT SAYS: Discover the new pro finish of long-wear: up to 24-hour wear with a hydrating glow. Lightweight and creamy, L’Oral Paris’ Infallible Pro Glow Foundation is a long lasting foundation that goes on smooth with a glowing finish that lasts. The hydrating foundation has medium coverage and instantly hides imperfections for a clear complexion. This luminous foundation with SPF is ideal for normal to dry skin.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep! This is one of my absolute favorite foundations of all time. It comes in second only to wet n wild Photo Focus. If you have dry skin, you need this in your life. The formula is liquidy and blends amazingly well. It immediately covers redness. 3 hours in and the foundation still looked glowy and dewy. 8 hours in there was very minimal wear down around where the glasses sit on my face. It looks just as awesome at the end of the night as it does when you first apply it.
COVERAGE: Medium Buildable
WHAT IT SAYS: New Lasting Finish 25HR Breathable Foundation is Rimmel’s most lightweight long-lasting formula. It perfects your skin with medium buildable coverage whilst enriched with breathable skin technology that doesn’t clog pores. Moisturizes for up to 25HRS. With SPF 18.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep! When I swatched this it oxidized almost immediately on my arm to at least a shade darker however it didn’t oxidize much if at all on the skin it got a bit warmer but not much. Usually, products that dry down matte aren’t the best for dry skin but this being moisturizing I was curious and it didn’t disappoint. It definitely cut out discoloration and some but not all of my redness, which is fine with me. If you have redness, you can color correct with this foundation and be good to go. I really enjoyed this foundation. We did get some shine around the 8/9 hour mark but again touch up with some powder and be good to go. It felt great on the skin.
COVERAGE: Light to Medium
WHAT IT SAYS: With patented color technology, L’Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Foundation precisely matches your skin’s tone and undertone and coordinates perfectly with True Match Powder, Blush, and Concealer. Formulated with Precise Match Technology to provide the most natural true-to-you coverage. Ultra-pure formula contains no oils, fragrances, or pore-clogging fillers, so all you see is beautiful, radiant, flawless skin. The super blendable foundation contains SPF 19 to protect skin while providing light to medium coverage with a natural finish. With Vitamins A and C, wheat germ and grape fruit extract to keep your skin nourished, protected and healthy.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep! I love how the color technology basically just fits with and blends to your skin tone. It’s basically magic. There are 33 shades in total which is awesome. You get a sheer application that you can build up to cover redness or blemishes. A your skin but better look when you do light coverage. It doesn’t settle into lines or wrinkles but around the 6-hour mark I started to see some wear down. It felt great on the skin. If I were to grade this foundation it would be an A- for 8 hours of wear time.
FINISH: Naturally Matte
WHAT IT SAYS: barePRO® Performance Wear Liquid Foundation provides natural looking full coverage-and so much more. This is heat, humidity, water and sweat-resistant foundation that provides broad-spectrum non-chemical SPF 20
KEEP OR TOSS: This is a keeper, it wore well and for being full coverage it still worked great for dry skin. Cut redness and covered discoloration. If you need full coverage but want something that will still have a semi-natural finish, grab this. It dries down matte but you can add some highlight and creams over it to get a more dewy complexion.
FINISH: Natural Satin Finish
WHAT IT SAYS: NEVER WEAR FOUNDATION AGAIN! Bye Bye Foundation is your first-ever full-coverage moisturizer! Developed with plastic surgeons, your innovative problem solver is designed to help cover and improve the look of skin concerns including redness, pores, dark spots, breakouts, lines and wrinkles—all while protecting your skin with SPF 50+ broad-spectrum physical sunscreen. Created with proprietary 3D Skin Flex™ Technology, your hydrating color-infused moisturizer provides smooth, flexible pure color pigments that float over lines and wrinkles and feel like nothing on your skin, but cover everything without creasing or cracking.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep!! This was a great foundation if you even want to call it that. It was a moisturizer with great coverage. Covered redness and blemishes and moved with the skin as you wear it verse breaking up as your face moves. It definitely does what it says it does. If you love the It Cosmetics CC cream but find it to just not be enough, grab this, it’s the perfect addition to the family. I love them both in different ways but I can see how this would work well for those of us with redness or dryness looking for a bit more coverage and moisture.
WHAT IT SAYS: This breakthrough color-correcting cream never creases or cracks and instantly camouflages skin imperfections including dark spots. Plus, it’s infused with an advanced anti-aging serum made of hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins A, B, C and E that work in harmony to diffuse the look of wrinkles, enhance skin brightness, minimize pores and give you a more radiant, supple and flawless-looking complexion.
KEEP OR TOSS: Keep! When I first tried this, they only went as light as their light shade and that didn’t really work for me. So when I grabbed fair I was excited to give it a try. It was a much better shade match and it worked really well. The coverage is decent, I wouldn’t actually call it full… I would say you could get a medium coverage out of it. It wears nice, even with dry skin you get a bit of a shine by the end of the day that’s easily handled with some translucent powder (like this one right here.. it’s my favorite).
