L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation

Hey guys! As most of you know, L’Oreal recently released a new line of foundations. The Infallible Pro-Glow foundations are formulated with a radiant finish and made for normal to dry skintypes. Pro-Glow is billed as a 24-hour foundation, but I don’t know anyone that would wear it for that long! It comes in a range of 12 shades. Matching to drugstore foundations is tricky for me, so I picked up 201 Classic Ivory, 203 Nude Beige, and 204 Natural Buff to try out.

I could not find an exact match in any of these shades. 201 was much too light, while 204 was way too dark. 203 was only a hair darker than my HG foundation shade (MUFE HD N115) at first, but it oxidized once it dried to a much darker color. I was able to mix a decent match between 201 & 203, but it wasn’t perfect.

As far as wear, this foundation was impeccable. I used it with my usual primers and routine and it applied flawlessly. At the end of the night, when I was about to remove my makeup after being in nightclubs and outside in the humid summer weather for the last 5 hours, it had not budged an inch! The only downside was that there was some light creasing around my smile lines, but that happens to me with all foundations that I try. Pro-Glow did not emphasize dry patches, break up around my nose & T-zone, and did not wear away along my jawline and chin. I will not be testing it to see if it truly stays put for 24 hours, but if it didn’t budge in this instance, I can easily see it staying put for a whole day, no problem.

At roughly $12 per 1-ounce bottle, this foundation is a great find. I do wish that the shade range was a bit more inclusive, so more people could find a match, but I think those that can will be very happy with this product. It is available on Ulta’s website as well as on Amazon.

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation!

Hey everyone! I recently picked up L’Oreal’s new True Match Lumi Cushion foundation at Ulta. Cushion foundations are starting to break onto the scene due to the surging popularity of K Beauty.

The Lumi Cushion foundation comes in 12 different shades in warm, neutral, and cool undertones. I’ve never worn L’Oreal foundations before, so I chose N2 to try out.

The packaging for this foundation is so great! It comes in a sturdy plastic compact, metallic rose gold on top and white on the bottom. When you open it, there is a space to keep your applicator puff, which closes over the foundation cushion. Cushion foundations are great for travel and for girls on the go because they’re so easy to apply and touch up!

The formula is very lightweight and comfortable. I used the puff that came with the foundation to apply it and I got light-medium coverage from just one layer. I applied one more layer over problem areas, like the redness in my cheeks, which didn’t conceal all of it, but that rarely happens so I’m cool with that haha.

After I applied the foundation, I forgot I had it on! It’s so lightweight and breathable that I felt like I had no makeup on. This foundation is perfect for everyday or if you want a fresh, dewy look.

The only real quibble I have with this foundation is the price. I paid $16.99 for a 0.47 oz product. Given that most foundations are 1 oz, this price point is on-par with a standard mid-range brand. I personally don’t mind paying for a product that works, but I know the cost of this foundation will alienate some customers.
