L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover comes out of the tube looking extremely thick...so much that it retains the shape of the tube opening as you squeeze it out. When I first saw this I thought it was going to feel heavy like other full-coverage foundations but thankfully that's not the case at all!
It has a fluffy, lightweight texture that seems to melt like butter into the skin rather than sitting on top. It then becomes almost like a second skin with a beautiful, natural finish that's neither matte or glowy. A little bit truly goes a long way and if you use too much, you might end up with a thicker, mask-like effect.
It does dry down very quickly so my advice would be to work quickly when blending this. I've had great results with both a flat-top brush and a Beauty Blender. Also, it doesn't seem to have much of a scent at all, which is always a plus!
It didn't settle into fine lines or pores and even though I have dry skin, it didn't cling to dry patches (especially when worn over a primer).
There are twelve shades in the range and they all start with the number "3". You might remember that the original Infallible Pro Matte range shades start with the number "1", while the Pro Glow shades start with "2".
I ended up choosing #302 Creamy Natural. I have fair-light skin with pink undertones but I'm usually not as light as the lightest shade, so I often select either the second or third shade (whatever one looks less yellow). In this case, the shade #302 has a very neutral undertone, so it works really well for me.

I would consider this foundation medium-to-full coverage...it hides all of my minor imperfections such as mild darkness under and around my eyes and redness around my nose. I find that I don't need to use concealer on top of this, which is a huge plus! But it's not full coverage enough to cover a tattoo. I tested it out by drawing a heart on my hand in black pen and coloring it in. This foundation only slightly covered it but the entire heart was still visible through it.
Also, it claims to wear for 24 hours but I noticed it starting to break down around the 8-9 hour mark...the redness on my nose was starting to come back through and needed to be touched up.
But despite those claims not really panning out, I still love this foundation! It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all and it allows a hint of my natural skin (and freckles) to peek through just a tiny bit which keeps it from looking like a mask. The end result is flawless-looking skin!

I'm really happy with the new L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover...it's quickly becoming one of my favorites! Even though it's not completely full coverage, it offers more coverage than your typical drugstore foundation, without looking heavy or cakey and feels completely weightless on the skin.
