If I’m doing a quick makeup look, one of the items I always use is foundation. I have pretty good skin, but I like putting something on it just to even it out and make it look flawless.
I have a ton of different foundations in my collection, some high-end, others drugstore. Just because it costs a lot money doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s an amazing product. Although my all-time faves are Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able and NARS Sheer Glow, I also love the Maybelline Fit Me Matte foundation, which is super affordable and found at drugstores.
Anyways, this brings me to today’s post, talking about the new face products from L’Oreal Paris. I can’t recall the last foundation that I’ve tried from them, so I was super excited to dig into the new Infallible Total Cover Foundation, which is available in 12 different shades, from light to dark.
As the name says, this foundation promises a full coverage up to 24 hours with a lightweight feel and a natural finish. This creamy foundation is a little more heavy duty than its medium-coverage counterparts, but it blends instantly to cover dark spots, blemishes, scars, and hyper pigmentation for a perfect complexion.
L’Oreal sent over four shades of this new foundation, 301, 302, 303, 304. These are the lightest shades in the range and just looking at the packaging, it looks like they get dark quite fast. I originally tried out 302, then 303, then finally 304, before deciding that all the colours worked for me (don’t judge the foundation by its packaging). I did put on self tanner earlier in the week, so I think that’s also part of the reason that 304 worked for my skin, otherwise I would probably stick with 302 or 303 for my winter complexion.
The texture of this foundation is quite thick, like a mousse consistency (not as think as Kat Von D’s Lock-It Tattoo Foundation though), and it blends out nicely to a powdery finish. Best of all, it doesn’t feel heavy. This foundation is actually formulated with highload pigments and is enriched with Alliagel. Although I didn’t test it out for 24 hours, this foundation did stay put on my skin throughout the day, even through a workout.
I would recommend this foundation for daytime wear, something you can wear to work or on the weekend. It doesn’t give you a glow, but there is an Infallible out there that delivers that feature. I love how comfortable it is and how it really does stick on your face throughout the day. Also, when used with the rest of my regime, it all held together, nothing faded away.
For the rest of the face, L’Oreal has also introduced a color correcting palette and blush palette under the Infallible line up.
The Infallible Total Colour Correcting Palette Kit is an all-in-one palette that colour corrects and neutralizes imperfections, giving you the perfect base for makeup application. There’s four creams in here that balances, corrects, and perfects complexion. The peach colour disguises dark circles, the yellow combats discolouration, green neutralizes redness, and purple brightens dullness.
I have a few different colour correcting palettes, and although I don’t really need these for my skin, I did give this one a go. I used the green around my nose and eye area to fade away any redness, and the peach under my eyes to brighten that up. I have found with other palettes that the green colour tends to stay green even when you blend it out, but that wasn’t the case with this one. The colour neutralized nicely into my skin, prepping it for foundation.
Also new is the Infallible Long Lasting Blush Palette Paint, which is a cheek palette with four blendable shades. I love blush palettes since they provide you with an assortment of colours in a space-saving palette. These guys, all in shades of pink, highlight, enhance and bring a pop of colour to your cheeks for a glowly look. The colour doesn’t go on too harshly, instead it blends out perfectly on your face for a nice glow. There is a mini brush included in the palette, but I just grabbed one of my many blush brushes to apply the colour.
I wore all these products out last Friday night to put them to the test. I ended up loving how my skin looked. You can’t really tell much with the colour corrector, but the foundation (304) and the blush make my skin look amazing and dewy. I would definitely check out your local drugstore to see these products up close and personal.
L’Oreal Paris has also released Infallible Lip Paints, which I did receive a selection of. Keep a look out for swatches of those coming up. They also have other great releases this season, like new skincare and the Colourista hair colour.
Let me know if you have tried out any of these new Infallible face products!
