The L’Oréal Infallible line has been by far my absolute favourite for foundation hands down. I fell in love the day I tried the Infallible Pro-Matte foundation and have yet to find a foundation that beats my love for the pro-matte. Then the Pro-Glow foundation came out and that one was amazing for a dewey look (read my review on both here). Following that, L’Oréal just released their 3rd foundation into the Infallible collection “Total Cover”. Now you all know I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and test it out.
The Infallible Total Cover foundation claims that you get up to 24 hours of full coverage with a lightweight feel and a natural finish. After wearing it for 2 days straight, I think I’ve made up my mind that this is definitely not a hit for me. I am actually really disappointed because I wanted this foundation to work so bad but I just hated the way it made my face look. I don’t know if it was the wrong shade or what but it just did not work for me.
As for the coverage, I don’t think it is as full coverage as I expected it to be. If you are going to market a product and say it is “full coverage” then it should actually BE “full coverage”. To me, the coverage felt the same as the pro-matte foundation. It blends and covers most dark spots, blemishes, scars, and any hyper pigmentation but not fully at 100%. I would say that the Infallible Total Cover is about 75-80% full coverage. This foundation seems to have a more pink undertone as opposed to the pro-matte and pro-glow which have more yellow undertones. Usually I am the shade 104 in the pro-matte so I purchased the 303 in the Total Cover because it was as close to my skin tone as I could get it without looking off. I still felt that it was a little too light and pink. The Total Cover foundation comes in a total of 12 shades.
The formula isn’t at all like your typical foundation. This formula is a very thick, creamy, almost mousse like texture which makes it kinda hard to get out of the tube. When you apply it on your face, I feel like it was really hard to blend it properly with a beauty blender so I used a foundation brush to buff in the rest. It stays pretty matte throughout the day and does a good job at oil control. One positive I did get from this is that although the foundation appears to be thick, it applies nicely to the face and doesn’t feel thick or heavy which of course, is a good thing.
Overall I think I would give this foundation a 6/10 and would say that the pro-matte and pro-glow are by far much better than the Total Cover foundation.
