L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation

12 February 2018

So I'm not very up to date with the latest beauty launches, but I bought this on a whim the other day and I'm very much in two minds about it. It's the L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover foundation, and I bought it in the lightest shade; 9 Light Sand. It was £9.99, and is marketed at being a full coverage foundation that lasts up to 24 hours.

Now, don't get me wrong, the coverage is insane. The second I put this on my housemates were asking what I'd used and complimenting that my skin looked incredible. It honestly is such full coverage, and blends out so nicely - it doesn't look cakey on the skin at all. I personally apply this with my Real Techniques beauty blender, and within seconds I have a flawless, even complexion.

But.... I find that this foundation does not last very well on my skin at allllll. It looks amazing to begin with, but I find it to go patchy throughout the day/night and just become a bit of a hot mess. I'm not sure if it's because of my skin type (combination/oily) or it's the formula or what, but something about this just doesn't seem to last on me.

As for the shade range, there aren't many at all, so I just grabbed the lightest one and went with it. And, to be honest, it's not a bad match at all, especially whilst it's winter and my skin is looking whiter than a queue of ugg-wearing girls in Starbucks waiting for Pumpkin Spice Lattes...

So, overall, I am blown away by the coverage of this, but the lasting power not so much... Thus, it is the ideal foundation for a night out; your skin looks flawless in all the photos before you go, and then when your makeup inevitably starts sliding off your face you're too drunk to notice anyway

  1. I loved this foundation for the first 5 hours of wearing it! But I noticed that it went patchy in areas where I had dry skin, it's so annoying because it has the possibility to be a great foundation!!
