So after my all time favourite day-time foundation changed their formula (looking at you Bourjois!), I decided to purchase the Infallible Total Cover by L’Oréal. I asked the blogging gals on twitter what day time foundation, I should try next. And I was mostly recommended the Infallible Total Cover, or True match (both by L’Oréal). I’ve tried the True match before, but I didn’t really know much about the Total Cover. So I thought what the heck, I’ll give this a whirl!
Most of the foundations I buy are buildable coverage. My all time favourite ‘night-out’ foundation is by Too Faced, which I absolutely swear by. However, I find it a bit too much for everyday use. And with myself being a recent grad on a never ending job hunt, I haven’t exactly got the cash to be regularly splashing out £30! However, the Infallible Total Cover by L’Oréal is definitely not buildable. As soon as you squirt it out the tube you can instantly see how thick it is! After I applied the foundation and concealer with an NYX sponge, my face did look a bit cakey and uneven. However, I then added my favourite MAC powder on top (click here to view) and make-up seemed to blend out much better! I applied my make-up around 11am, and at 10pm when I come home from a tough leg day, my foundation was still completely intact.
For myself it does feel like I’m wearing a lot of day time make-up. But at the same time, the foundation is allowing my concealer to blend much better, and not slide half way down my face by mid afternoon! I’ve seen quite a few bloggers blend Infallible Total Cover and True Match together. Which seems like a good idea for the days you don’t want this level of coverage.
Have you used the Infallible Total Cover before? What do you think of the formula? Let me know in the comments!
