L’Oreal Infalliable Total Cover Foundation Review

After hearing some rave reviews about the L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation ($12.99) and also because I am a fan of their Infallible Pro Glow Foundation, I had to try it!! This Foundation is now a permanent foundation in the L’Oreal Spring 2017 line.

The texture of the foundation is very mousse like and velvety. It does feel quite airy and lightweight, it spread very evenly on my hand when I swatched it. I don’t recommend choosing your color by the color on the tube, the color is much more darker on the outside.
There are twelve shades in the latest range and they all start with the number 3. The original Infallible Pro Matte range shades start with the number 1, while the next Pro Glow shades start with 2. So, I noticed they keep changing the first digit with the newer collections, while the next two colors remain the same, so you can chose your correct shades. I bought two colors in #308 Sun Beige & #305 Natural Beige that I mix to get my perfect color.

The Foundation tube, has a narrow thin nozzle that I like as you can control how much foundation you would squeeze out for use, however you really have to squeeze the tube hard for the product to come out.


Application –

Texture & Coverage

I am not too crazy about mousse-ey foundations, I prefer more lightweight runny foundations. Both 305 & 308 foundation colors looked kind ashey to me. I tried applying the foundation both with a beauty blender & a flat top kabuki Sigma F80. The foundation blends quite well on the skin. It leaves a natural to powdery finish on my drier skin with a kind of white cast (hmm wonder why as this has no Spf). It gave me I wouldn’t say full coverage but a light medium coverage. It did last 6-8 hours without needing to set with powder. It claims to be a natural finish which is true but I did notice some shine on just a couple hours.

The foundation claims to be full coverage, unfortunately for me that was not true. Even after applying two coats which I rarely do, my blemishes & dark spots peeked through. I could see some redness and was not wowed by the coverage at all! So, I don’t feel like it has a “total coverage” like it is claiming.


I have to admit, I had high hopes from this one but it just did not work for me at all. It separated, was splotchy, does not have full coverage and did cling to my dry patches only after 2-3 hours. I don’t mean to be harsh but after loving the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow, I expect a lot from L’Oreal Infallible line to be at par with the other their foundations if not better, but am very disappointed with the entire new collection and might be taking the foundations back 🙁
