L’Oréal Paris’ new Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation (available in drugstores and mass retailers) promises to provide a non-greasy, luminous and radiant glow that is both long-lasting and hydrating. Plus, it’s supposed to hold up for up to 24 hours! With a medium coverage that hides imperfections, this was definitely a product we wanted our Beauty Panel to try. Read on to see their before and after shots, plus their reviews.

Let’s get two things straight: I’m obsessed with trying new face treatments and am extremely picky when it comes to foundation. On this particular day, it was an experiment of epic proportions when I tried a new face mask (and it went very, very bad) and then tried L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation in hopes that it would cover up the mess the mask left behind on my face. On the upside, it made my before and after pics extremely dramatic and gave me the chance to see what this drugstore foundation could really do (yay, silver lining!).
While I categorize myself as particular when it comes to foundation, I really only expect two things: coverage without being cakey or heavy and something that makes me look alive and not like a doll. With L’Oréal Paris’ Infallible Pro-Glow, I got everything I wanted and more. Not only did it cover up the red remnants of my #beautyfail, but it also gave me a soft, non-greasy glow without weighing down or clogging my super-delicate skin (hence the mask disaster). For those craving a less-is-more, glows-from-within finish (plus something that will cover even the most stubborn redness), this is the real beauty win.

When it comes to makeup, I really believe that less is more. That’s why I love L’Oréal Paris Pro-Glow foundation. Its lightweight consistency goes on flawlessly and stays put all day. It has even converted me to loving that dewy glow so many strive for. I naturally have oily skin and so always focus on matte looks. But the L’Oréal Paris Pro-Glow foundation is a happy medium between matte and dewy.

For someone with oily skin, I typically opt for a matte foundation, but L’Oréal Paris’ new Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation actually made me look less greasy, while still giving me that covetable youthful glow. The long-wear claims definitely stood up as well. Without a primer or setting spray the foundation stayed put from 8am to 11pm without fading away, which is something I’ve rarely experienced when just wearing foundation. Overall the coverage, finish and wear were all something you’d expect from a luxury foundation!

My daily beauty regimen always includes foundation as I have pigmented skin. So when I was asked to test out L’Oréal Paris’ latest innovation, Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, I was curious to see the end result. After applying it to my blotchy skin, I was really surprised how great the coverage was. Not only did it look flawless on, it gave me a natural J.Lo glow that felt lightweight, and there was no need to reapply it on my skin after a full day of wear! I think I found my new fave foundation to add to my makeup bag!

Full disclosure, I waited until I was dead to the world to review L’Oréal Paris’ Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation because I have a lust for dramatic results. (Just kidding: I was just terrible at time management this week, and realized the day after the Polaris Prize was the only time I could before/after for you efficiently.) So here we are. The first picture sees me as a glorified corpse, wearing my everyday makeup — but after a little time spent outside and eating lunch and burying my head in my hands and screaming “Why?!” The second features the effects of L’Oréal Paris’ Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation (with a bit of concealer for good measure). And good news: it blended perfectly, stayed in sync with the day’s no makeup-makeup look (I did NOT wake up like this), and helped tone down the afternoon shine I traditionally get. Which surprised me: the formula feels almost oily, so the last thing you’d expect was something that went on so light. Thus, congratulations to me, who looks less tired now. And congratulations to you, who got to see a photo of me with Drake.

In my opinion, the best makeup look is always one where fresh, dewy skin is the main point of focus. This type of look is also great for anyone who is busy and looking for an application that takes less than five minutes to complete, which is basically me every single day. I’m also someone who prefers to apply most makeup with my fingertips, and I instantly loved how easy the L’Oréal Paris’ Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation was to apply with my hands. The liquid is smooth, silky, and most importantly, not sticky, so you’re left with great coverage that looks light and fresh with a great glow! Since I travel a lot, I’m always looking for quality products I can grab on the go (or when I’ve left something behind) and this has definitely made it onto my list of trusted products that can be found at a local drug store.
