L'Oréal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation

L'Oreal Pro-Glow foundation retails for $12.99 USD ($16.99 CAD)Check out my video for demo, review and comparison with L'Oreal Pro-Matte foundation:

 
________________
Packaging
It comes in a tube and contains 1 fl oz (30 mL) of product. 

It looks similar to L'Oreal Pro-Matte foundation.
________________
Shades
There are 12 shades to choose from. I got the shade 208 Sun Beige, which is lighter than me. Unfortunately I can't get shade 209 Caramel Beige here in Canada, so I will have to make this work. I have a strong feeling I'm in between 208 and 209 anyway. Also, keep in mind that it does oxidize, so I don't think shade 209 would have worked for me. 
Here are swatches of the shade 208 Sun Beige of when I first applied it and how it looks after it sets (left).
As for L'Oreal Pro-Matte Foundation, I have the shade 107 Fresh Beige and that's a bit warmer but it still looks good.  
Here are swatches of L'Oreal Pro-Matte - 107 Fresh Beige and L'Oreal Pro-Glow - 208 Sun Beige:
Shade ReferenceI don't own any MAC foundation but I should be around NC40-NC42 in MAC. 
Here are some of the foundations that match me well:

Review 
I think it's a good everyday foundation that can even work with some with combination/oily skin like mine as long as you set it properly and use a primer but you might need to touchup throughout the day. The coverage isn't that bad. It does cover my redness and hides most of my imperfections. It's easy to apply and I do prefer applying it with beautyblender. It does set fast, so I'd recommend applying it on half of face first.
Left side: With Foundation
Right side: Without Foundation 
  • Finish: Radiant
  • Coverage: Medium 
  • SPF 15
  • Wear time: I tested it out for about 8 hours and it looks good throughout the day but the only thing I noticed is since I have combination/oily skin, I do get oily around my T-zone. 
    Pros   
    • Long wearing: It looks good throughout the day and I find it doesn't . If you have normal/dry skin, it should look great throughout the day 
    • Lightweight
    • Easy to apply
    • Blendable 
    Cons 
    • Slightly clings on dry patches: It does slightly cling on my dry patches especially when I apply it with a brush.
    • Lack of shades: I really wish there were more shades. I'm in between 208 and 209.
    • Flashback: Since the foundation contains SPF 15, it does give a bit of flashback but it's less noticeable in photos taken outside.
