L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you've probably already heard about the new L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow foundation! Suitable for normal and dry skin, this foundation is supposed to provide medium coverage and a radiant finish while being exceptionally lightweight.

The Pro-Glow Foundation is available in 9 shades. I have the 5 lightest shades :

201 Classic Ivory is similar to NW20 and has pink undertones.

202 Creamy Natural is a weird shade, it has cool and almost grey undertones. I have no idea what would be the MAC equivalent of this color! Maybe NC20, but the undertones aren't very yellow.

203 Nude Beige is similar to NW25 and has pink undertones.

204 Natural Buff is slightly darker than 203 Nude Beige and a bit warmer. This shade is between a NW25 and a NW30, it has pinky beige undertones.

205 Natural Beige is slightly darker than NC30.

This foundation has a very thin consistency and feels lightweight on the skin. As you can see, the coverage is really good! I would say it's medium coverage.

The finish is luminous but not super dewy, it doesn't feel greasy or sticky. In comparison to L'Oréal's True Match Lumi Cushion, it offers more coverage and the consistency is definitely thinner. The finish is less luminous and it doesn't cling to dry patches.

Here's 205 Natural Beige on me, without any primer or powder :

I love luminous foundations, as long as they aren't too rich or greasy! My skin is very oily and I don't like to look like a greaseball, but sometimes I don't want a totally matte complexion. The trick is to apply a good mattifying primer and set the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) with some loose powder.

Speaking of primers, I've tested the Pro-Glow foundation with many different primers and I didn't notice any particular problems with any of them. If your skin is oily like mine, try Becca's Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector or Neostrata's Oil Free Matifying Fluid! Both are awesome.

Does it wear up to 24 hours though? I don't know because I would never wear makeup for such a long period of time, but it does last all day (more than 10 hours) if I set it with some powder.

The Pro-Glow foundation is less dewy and hydrating than Clarins True Radiance and MAC Studio Waterweight foundations. It's a bit more luminous and opaque than Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, though.

The Infallible Pro-Glow foundation has nothing in common with the Infallible Pro-Matte foundation, the Pro-Glow is much more liquidy and doesn't have as much coverage. The finish is very different as well, one is luminous and the other is matte. By the way, I love to mix both foundations together! The satin finish is beautiful!

My only complaint is the color selection, I can only wear this foundation when I'm tan because all the shades lighter than 205 are too pink!

  2. I love that it has lots of pinks, I might give it a try even with oilier skin.

    1. That's a good thing if you need pink undertones, but they definitely should add more golden light shades and deeper shades for women of color as well!

  3. I have the same problem. When I'm tan I use 205 but I'm getting light again and I bought the 204 but it's too pink. Should I mix the two?

    1. I would return the 204 for the 202, and mix it with the 205! This is what I do now, because 203 and 204 are too pink.

  5. Hi Kristelle
    Thankyou so much for helping me with that!
    Just a quick question-if I ad some of the 204 to the two do you think I'll get a nice nc 25 but not too yellow? Only as you said the 202 is a greyish shade,I don't want too much yellow that's all!
    I'm olive times but 2 shades lighter than you-I use the pro longwear nourish in Mac in nc25 and it's probably the least yellow in the Mac range so that is throwing me off with this foundation-how dark the 205 is ,anyway please let me know what you think and if u have any more pics of the colours on ect please send them if you could please,
    Thank you so much.Your post is the best one I have found and will follow from now on!
    Kind regards Kristine

    1. Hi Kristine,

      If you mix 204 and 205, it will have peach undertones but it won't be much lighter than just the 205.

      The 205 doesn't run too yellow compared to most MAC 'NC' shade! But I'm afraid it would be too dark for you. When I mix 202 and 205, I get golden olive beige undertones.

      I have a sample of the Pro Longwear Foundation in NC25. I compared it to my 202 + 205 mix and the MAC sample looks much more yellow-orange.

      You can also buy the shade 203 and mix it with a bit of green eyeshadow (although I prefer the real deal : MUFE Chromatic Mix drops), the original shade is quite pink compared to NC25 hence why you would need a bit of green to neutralize that pink. But it can change the texture a bit.

  6. Hi Kristelle-I forgot to mention I love the 3n in Loreal true match,it's a tad too light but I mix it with a little of my Mac in nc25 and add bronzer as needed and it gives a great lifted glow- what could you recommend that's close to that shade -3n true match?
    Thanks so much again!!

  7. H Krystelle thanks so much for getting back to me! What is the 204 like? I had a look at the original matte formula today and I liked the 22 radiant beige -here n Aus it's called that-I think it's 4th shade on the list so maybe it's 104 there? I wish Loreal would stop mucking the world around and just call all there stuff the same name regardless of country!! Anyways I'm tuning 204 maybe good? What's your thoughts? Thanks heaps again!!kristne

    1. 204 is slightly darker than 203 and a bit less pink, but less golden and lighter than 205.

      The Pro-Matte #104 is much lighter than the Pro-Glow #205 and the undertones are less golden-olive. 204 is a bit darker than the Pro-Matte #104, and 203 would be a better match but it's slightly cooler and still a bit darker. Does that help?

  8. Hi Kristelle again!!
    Thanks for getting back to me again! Yes it does help heaps-when you say cooler do you mean pink or olive toned? P.s: have you tried the pro matte ,if so what are your thoughts?
    I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks do much again! Do you have any other posts I can look at?
    Talk again soon hopefully!

    1. Hi Dina,

      205 is slightly darker than NC30, but unfortunately 203 and 204 have pink undertones. I like to mix 202 and 205, it's the best match for any shade between NC20 and NC30.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for your reply ! Really appreciate it :) so even if i use NC25 as well, i should do the same and mix both ?

      Delete
    3. Yes, but you would need to adjust the amount of each shade. I think half and half would be great for NC25!
