Happy Spring everyone!
I'm so happy to finally be in spring. It's definitely my favorite season and I've been loving the weather lately. It's definitely been warming up! I've been asked a lot (both through this blog and on my personal Facebook page) to do a review on the new L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover foundation, so I thought I'd do that today.
Unfortunately, I have very acne prone combination skin. I've gotten it under control lately compared to a few years ago, but it's still not perfect. I still break out and have some blemishes here and there and some acne scarring, so I almost always use a full coverage foundation. I was using the Kat Von D Lock It foundation but it's a little pricey so I don't like to use it everyday. When I saw that L'Oreal came out with a new full coverage foundation, I had to try it. I bought mine at CVS for $11. They have a good range of shades, going from ivory to cocoa. I sometimes have problems in the winter finding a light enough shade for me without pink undertones, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a perfect match (#303). I was also very pleased with the price. It claims: "You can get up to 24 hours of full coverage with a lightweight feel and a natural finish! Blends instantly to cover dark spots, blemishes, scars, and hyperpigmentation for a flawless complexion."
The first thing I noticed when swatching it on my hand, was that it's very thick. You have to squeeze the tube pretty hard to get it out. A little bit goes a long way. Luckily it didn't feel very heavy on my face. I wouldn't say it's very lightweight, but it doesn't feel like a mask either. It's somewhere in the middle. I would, however, definitely suggest using a good moisturizer and/or primer before applying this because it will stick to dry skin and make it very noticeable. This product has a demi-matte finish. It does do a wonderful job covering imperfections. I barely have to use concealer when I use this. My t-zone and chin can get pretty oily throughout the day, so I did have to touch up my setting powder a couple times, but that happens with any foundation.
I'm really impressed with L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover, and have been using it almost daily. It's become a drug store favorite of mine. Unfortunately the tube is only 1 oz., so it runs out pretty quickly. That would probably be my biggest complaint. I would give this product a 9/10 and would recommend it to anyone with oily or combination skin, acne prone skin, and/or skin discoloration that is looking for a full coverage foundation that is long lasting.
