L’Oréal Infallible Total Cover Foundation Review

When I first heard about this product, I was ecstatic! I mean a drugstore foundation that is matte, long wearing and inexpensive? What more could I ask for? I really enjoy the infallible matte and porless foundation so I had very high hopes.

I decided to first try applying this foundation with a beauty blender. It seemed to go on easy and blend with no problems. The only thing was that after one layer, I could still see my freckles and my acne spots where still very apparent. After going in with a second layer, it seemed to help.


My major complaint is that is seemed to cling to dry spots and settle into fine lines. I applied around 7am and by 5pm my oils had come through and broken up the foundation on my forehead and nose.

I wasn’t so impressed so I decided to give the foundation another try. Where as the first time I applied it to a sponge and then blended it in, this time I chose to use my Artis Oval 7 brush. I worked in sections, apply the foundation to my skin, blending and then moving to another section. Here are the results:


So using the Artist brush, I got a much more full coverage application. But, I still had a major problem with my dry areas. On my nose and chin, the foundation exaggerated every piece of dry skin.

Overall, I give this foundation a 5/10. I think that the coverage is decent but it is drying. I think this will work better when my skin is not as dry in the spring/summer. That being said, I’ll stick to my Kat Von D Lock It foundation for now.

Hope you find this review helpful and remember, find something to smile about every day.
