L’oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation

I love that L’oreal are introducing different lines into their infallible range. Since I love Pro-Glow so much, I wanted to try this new one which claims to offer full coverage.

LOREAL INFALLIBLE TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION 1

The texture is quite thick which feels like foam and you need the tiniest amount to give you decent coverage. The first negative I noticed straight away was that the formula was difficult to blend. I did use a beauty blender though and this probably didn’t do me any favours. Due to thickness of the formula, I recommend using a brush to apply.

What I like about this foundation though is the coverage it gives – it really is total cover.

During my testing period I had this foundation on for 10 hours and there was no noticeable patchiness or oiliness. However, the second time I wore this, there was a few dry patches on my face especially around the nose area and I can’t think what I had done differently. I am going to try this mixed in with a lighter foundation such a Pro-Glow as I feel it will lighten the consistency.

As always, I will drop the pros and cons below to help you decide if this is the foundation for you.

Pros

  • Long lasting
  • Full coverage
  • Large shade selection for light skin tones
  • Comparable to high end foundation
  • Great for oily skin (no breakouts on the t zone)
  • A little goes a long way
  • Good value for the price you pay

Cons

  • Limited shade selection for dark skin tones
  • Patchy around nose area
  • Difficult to blend with Beauty Blender
  • May need mixing with a lightweight foundation
  • Applied with two layers and it can look ‘caked on’
  • Hard texture
  • Thick consistency
  • Need to work with it very quickly

Swatches

I picked up the shade Sand and have done a swatch for you below:

LOREAL INFALLIBLE TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION 3

You can see what I mean about the thick and foam like consistency – it is quite weighty.

LOREAL INFALLIBLE TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION 4

I have shown the swatch blended out too so you get an idea of the coverage.

L’oreal are doing amazing with all their new releases – all of which I have loved so far, but I am still on the fence with this one.

You can purchase the foundation right here for only Β£9.99.

    Woah, I love the amount of coverage you get bit it looks quite thick to me. I love using a sponge to apply my foundation so I have no idea how I’d get along with the foundation myself x

    Thanks for the balanced review. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this but for me I think it looks too heavy. It’s great to see it swatched to get an idea of the consistency X

    I really wanted to like this foundation because the coverage is amazing, however, this broke down around my chin and nose in just a few hours. As it’s so difficult to blend this really wasn’t worth my time!

    I only add a tiny bit mixed with pro glow and I like that but I definitely couldn’t wear this alone as it’s too thick for me. Wish we could pro glow here it’s so unfair lol. Great review Hun xo

    I’m one of the weirdos that absolutely loves this. It really works for my oily skin but I know that it has been a little heavy and in some cases greasy on those with a drier complexion. I really hope that they bring out more shades though! x
