L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Review


I haven't reviewed a foundation in a time!  I've been resisting for months to purchase any new foundations or makeup products in general and I finally caved.  I picked up the L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover foundation over the weekend and decided to do a review + spring makeup look.

Application + Finish

On the back of the tube it describes the foundation as Natural, 24 Hour, High Coverage and Air-Light.  Okay, if you watch the video you'll see that I struggled so hard to even squeeze the product out of the bottle, it's a lot thicker than I thought it would be.  On it does feel pretty light like described, it almost has the consistency of a mousse, but in a tube.  It was smoothing and did feel light on the skin, but I had to use a lot of the product to get the coverage I wanted.  It's not very cost effective if you have to use 10% of the tube each time you apply it.  The lasting power was pretty good, but I think it's because I had so much on my face LOL.  I didn't find myself exceptionally oily or dry after applying which was a bonus, my skin felt soft and natural.  

Packaging & Price 

The packaging for this product is a total fail for me.  I am not a fan of the cheap plastic squeeze tube at all, especially considering that L'Oreal Lumi and True Match come in quality glass bottles and are roughly the same price.  For around $20 CAD you get 30ml of product, and like I said you have to use a lot of it to get true full-coverage, meaning you may not get the most for your money here.  

Final Thoughts

Honestly, I am pretty disappointed with Infallible Total Cover.  I am huge fan of other L'Oreal Foundations specifically, True Match, Lumi and Infallible Pro-Matte but I think they missed the mark on this one.  After reading other sub-par reviews online I would be surprised if they keep this one on the shelves.  I hope this review was informative and helpful, check out my full reaction in the video below!
