Is It Really The Best Drugstore Foundation? L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation

If you've been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks then you probably won't have heard about the new L'Oreal Range. They have released a set of products to help you achieve that full coverage flawless finish that everyone is desperate for. L'Oreal is at the higher end of the drugstore, but nevertheless they refuse to let you pay more than £15 for one of their foundations. Compared to other companies on the high end side that will charge almost double that. 

Today I am sharing with you my thoughts on the L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation. There's very mixed opinions on this foundation at the moment so I thought I would share my opinion on this. It claims to have a full coverage and weightless feel, with this new "camo stretch technology" allowing ultimate spreadability and even coverage. 

The range features 5 shades, I picked up the shade Porcelain (10). This foundation is more on the pink side, so if your face is more warm toned like mine then this may be a bit difficult to match at first. As it is such a high coverage foundation the consistency is almost like a paste, I had to use a foundation brush first to apply it onto my face and then blended it out with a beauty blender. The beauty blender on its own soaks up the product and struggles to really disperse the product evenly on my skin. 

The foundation dries really quickly so I would make sure you apply it to your face in sections. Otherwise it cakes up very easily if you use too much. Because it is so full coverage I recommend only using a small amount.

For wear time this does fairly well. It managed about 20 hours including an hour and a half at the gym before it had really disappeared off my face. I didn't use any setting sprays, just the L'Oreal Infallible Matte based primer. I did wear the foundation on a couple of days without a primer and the foundation didn't hold as well. So a primer is crucial for this foundation to work at its best. 

In terms of breakouts this foundation was fairly good with my skin. I did have a few pesky spots that came up a couple of days into testing this foundation. I wouldn't say it is primarily the foundations fault as I had just started to change my skincare routine so it could be a mix of new products that caused it. 

Overall, I am a huge fan of this foundation. The coverage is great and lasts for a pretty long time. I am quite harsh when it comes to foundations wear time as I do a lot during my day that I don't really have a lot of time to be reapplying my makeup. Retailing at £9.99 but on sale at £7.99  which is really great for a foundation that works so well. 

Now that I have given my thoughts, I want to know how you have found this foundation. Comment down below your thoughts, or any other foundations you think I should test out.
