It's April already and I need to keep up with my schedule for blogging. I was supposed to publish three posts by this time already but looking for a new blog template kept me busy. I already spotted something I would want to purchase so I need to have to load my Paypal soon. Anyway, this time I will be reviewing Loreal Paris 24HR Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, the counterpart of the cult-fave Pro-Matte for those with dry skin. I like it when foundations have different formulations intended for different skin types! Whoo!!!

Packaging: Pro-Glow Foundation comes in a squeezable tube (like the Pro-Glow) with a precision nozzle that allows me to easily control the amount to dispense. It has a color block-like design where the middle part shows the exact shade that you are getting. This type of packaging really helps a lot because it saves us time though you really have to swatch the product prior to purchasing since foundation would look really different when blended to what it actually looked from the tube itself.

It has a span life of two years as printed on the tube.

Scent: I do not detect any awful scent, but even without reading the list of ingredients, I know this product has alcohol in it. I actually don't care because it does not in any way sabotage the product's effectiveness.

Shade: The shade that I got is 207 Sand Beige (with a neutral to pinkish undertone) because I have the Revlon Colorstay Makeup in Sand Beige. This is not the proper move because upon receiving the parcel (I ordered Pro-Glow online), I figured out that the Revlon's Sand Beige is lighter than Loreal's. Turned out, Loreal's Sand Beige is of equal match to my skin tone (a darker Sand beige to the Revlon's) when I should get one shade lighter foundation since I have oily skin where makeups tend to oxidize.

I'm in the shade Golden Beige for the Pro-Matte, but because the shade range between Pro-Matte and Pro-Glow are different, I find it hard to pick which shade best suits me. I am not worrying anymore though because Sand Beige is a match for my complexion and all I have to do is buff a lighter pressed powder to somehow aid in the oxidation of the foundation after hours.

Texture and ease of application: The foundation has a runny consistency as it tends to glide on my skin when dispensed. It does not have that thick formulation, hence, it only offers an air-light and non-greasy feeling upon application. It is also easy to blend seamlessly with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

The product claims to give skin a hydrating glow but I think it would not, particularly to its target market (dry skin), because it dries semi-matte on me and I have super oily skin! That is something to take note about please. Well, to be honest, I think this foundation can be for those with oily skin too given its shine-free and lightweight finish.

Coverage: I would say that the coverage if pretty much buildable from sheer to medium with two coats of foundation as swatched down below. Even after two coats (I rarely do two coats unless I really wanted to have a more flawless complexion), blemishes and scars are still peeking through. So it's safe to say that Loreal Paris 24HR Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation does not have full coverage so if you prefer that than natural-looking skin, then this is not for you.

Longevity: This foundation has a normal lasting power, probably 5-6 hours at max but not 24 hours. It does not bother me very much as setting it with a layer of powder helps in making my skin look natural but better.

To be honest, aside from getting the right-est shade for me, nothing is too spectacular about this Pro-Glow foundation. It retails almost as much as the Pro-Matte variant but I would still repurchase Pro-Matte because of the better coverage, lasting power and finish.
