Today I want to talk to you about the Loreal’s Infallible foundations, specifically the last three releases. I am sure you have all heard of these by now, but I wanted to give you a mini review and my opinions on these products. I tried to keep my makeup the same for all three products and I applied them all using a beauty blender. So, let’s just jump right into it, shall we?
Loreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation:
Out of the three foundations recently released, this one is technically the second one. However, it was the first one I tried. Not only that, this was the first drugstore foundation I had ever tried! This foundation is advertised as an air-light, medium coverage foundation with a radiant finish as super long wear (24hours!). From my experience this foundation ticks all those boxes, except for the wear time. I have not tried to wear this for 24 hours but I have worn it for over 12 hours and I can see some areas where the foundation seems to have dissapeared. The texture of the foundation is very watery but it’s a really nice product. What I love about this foundation is how easy it is to blend and how it melts into your skin. I am currently using color 208-Sun Beige, but I also have 209-Caramel Beige, which is more of my Summer shade. I also have to tell you that you don’t really feel this foundation on the skin (remember that air-light description?) and it is very build-able if you prefer a higher coverage.
Loreal Pro-Matte Foundation:
I liked the Pro-Glow so much that I was curious to try to Pro-Matte. At this price point, what did I have to lose? The description for this foundation is similar to the Pro-Glow, differing mostly in finish and actual texture of the foundation. It is air-light, like the glow version, but the texture is a bit thicker. Don’t be discouraged by this though as this foundation also blends very easily and also melts into your skin. The other differing quality from the glow version is that the finish in this foundation is demi-matte. I find that this foundation wears better than the Pro-Glow. I feel like my makeup looks pretty much the same as it did when I first applied it all day. This foundation is also build-able, but medium coverage is great for me. With either of these two foundations I apply a thin layer all over my face and lightly set it with powder. I don’t think you need to set these but I do as I don’t really touch up throughout the day and I do get oily in my T-zone.
Loreal Infallible Total Cover:
When I first heard of this foundation I was on the fence. Like I mentioned earlier, I prefer medium coverage foundations, especially for day time looks. “I don’t really need this.” So, I bought shade 309-Sun Beige. I know, I’m weak when it comes to makeup. Please don’t judge me. 🙂 The claims for this foundation are long wearing, high coverage foundation with air-light texture and natural finish. On me, this is the longest wearing foundation of the three. They are also not kidding when they say it is full coverage – a little bit goes a very long way. I apply about half of what I use with the other two foundations and it still covers everything. The texture of the foundation is thick, almost mousse like. Despite this I think it blends easily and it does feel air-light. I only set my T-zone and I am good to go for the rest of the day.
At this point you are probably wondering which one is my favorite and which one is my least favorite, right? If I had to choose one of these, and only one, to repurchase, then that would be hands down the Pro-Matte. I love the finish on my skin and it does really well at controlling my oily T-zone. If I want to add more glow to my face then I can always do that with highlighter so I like that customization option. It is perfect for me as an every day foundation! My least favorite is the Total Cover. While I do love the finish and how long it wears I don’t like the fact that it seems to cling to areas of texture around my face. I don’t know about you, but that is not something I am trying to show off. It is also way more coverage that I want from a day time foundation.
So, there you have it. I hope you liked this mini review of these foundation. I hope it was useful if you are someone who is on the fence about trying any, or all of them.
Please let me know if you have tried these and what your thoughts are.
