Loreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation

Now that we've gotten all the ads & sponsored posts out of the way — very sorry about that; however I am very straightforward about everything here, so you would know whether the post is sponsored or not (it'll have a * on the title if it is) — here's a review of one of my favorite drugstore foundations — the L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation (Php700).

The texture of this foundation is reminiscent of the now discontinued Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation, another one of my favorites. It has a whipped like consistency, very thick, but oddly, very lightweight. Both of the foundations have full coverage, too. If I didn't know better, I think L'oreal just repackaged the old Revlon Whipped Creme lol.

But, to tell you the truth, the Revlon one has the better packaging. I hate the packaging of this foundation. It comes in a tube, which I normally like, but the product is too thick for that. It takes great effort before you can dispense some product, but once you, it's worth all the squeezing!

The L'oreal Total Cover Foundation is actually, to be perfectly honest, finicky. It won't be for everyone. Not everyone would have the patience to use this foundation because it doesn't glide as easily. Definitely not a foundation that you would reach for when you're rushing in the morning. I find that the best way to apply this foundation is with a damp sponge or a really dense buffing brush; and you have to work area by area because it can be quite hard to blend out. If you don't work in small areas, the foundation tends to clump together, which is weird and very annoying.

I wish it comes in many more shades, because Natural Beige pulls a tad bit neutral on me. You can see that in the first photo below. But eh, nothing a good bronzer won't fix.

There's a 5-hour difference between the second and the third photo above, and as you can see, while the foundation did not fade at the slightest, it doesn't have the best oil control. Not saying that this foundation has the worst oil control ever, because I had even worst, but you do have to blot in the middle of the day. I don't mind doing that, but for some people it may be off-putting.

Unlike the Revlon Whipped Creme, the L'oreal Total Cover Foundation does not cling on my dry patches. It covers everything, it has a medium coverage but very buildable to full. This has even better coverage than the Dior Forever Undercover! The L'oreal Total Cover is not as lightweight as the Dior, you can really feel that you have a foundation on. But it's not as bad, and does not feel mask-like compared to the ELDW.

I bought this at 50% off during a Lazada sale, but it's still quite affordable even at its full price. So definitely will be repurchasing this once I ran out because it's worth it.
