3 FOR 2 | L'OREAL PARIS HAUL TOTAL COVER FOUNDATION VOLUMINOUS MASCARA INFALLIBLE GEL EYELINER


As most of you know most drugstores offer 3 for 2 deals all the time, meaning that everytime I walk into either Boots or Superdrug I always talk myself into buying 2 extra products that I don't need. I thought it would be different and hopefully somewhat interesting to share what I got, so if you face a similar dilemma you can read this post. Instead of just telling you what I got I will also share my first impressions of each product too so you have an idea of whether or not you spend your cash on them. The product I walked in for was the L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation (£10) in Shade 24 Golden Beige. My local Boots didn't have this shade in stock, which sounds like the closest match to me, so when I visited my friend in Nottingham last weekend I checked the nearest Boots and lo and behold I was in luck. I snapped it up after doing a quick hand swatch and then scoured the shelves for two more products to take advantage of the perpetual 3 for 2 offer. 


Instantly, I was drawn to the L'Oreal Voluminous Extra Black Mascara (£8.50). This mascara is a cult favourite and I can never find it in store anywhere. I  couldn't believe my luck. Lastly, I decided to try out the Infallible Gel Eyeliner (£5.19) in Black because Kaushal Beauty mentioned it as being really black, creamy and long-lasting. I have only tried each product once, except for the gel liner which I  had swatched on my hand. My first impressions are that the Total Cover foundation is very thick and full coverage. It takes a lot of effort to blend and Golden Beige appears a shade too light for me I  think. As of right now, I much prefer the L'Oreal True Match and L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundations to Total Cover. The mascara, on the other hand, is really nice. It's a great separating mascara but doesn't give any volume or curl, I would suggest curling your lashes well first and then applying a few coats of this mascara for a noticeable effect. It's subtle but non-clumping which I really like. As for the eyeliner, it is super black and quite creamy but the second time I swatched it on my hand it broke so it's almost too soft which doesn't bode well.

  1. I used to love that mascara years ago but I think they've changed the formula over the years because the last one I bought did absolutely nothing for my lashes! Hard to beat a 3 for 2 deal! xx

  2. I love a good 3 for 2! I have been so good recently not going into drugstores so I don't get tempted to spend money!! These all sound like brilliant products, I've not actually tried anything from L'Oreal! X

  3. I've been testing out all 3 of their foundations and agree with you. I love the Matte & Pro Glow over the Total Cover. They always have great deals on makeup.

  5. LOL I'm the same when it comes to sales, if they had the 3 for 2 sale near me I would also convince myself I needed the extra two products ;) It's a shame that you don't like the new foundation as much as the true match. I always get all the infallible foundations confused since there are so many different ones... and I think there are also different ones in various countries? Anyways hope you're having a lovely time in France!

  6. I would like to try the Total Cover foundation, but as you said it is difficult to blend... and I prefer BB creams... but well, sometimes we buy products and have another idea, so I still would like to try it :) L'Oreal mascaras are like that, they are good, but somehow they are not really all what they promise! A very good review! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thank you Denise! Yeah I see what you mean, if you prefer BB creams I don't think you will like Total Cover. It's the complete opposite but definitely have a gander in store to see what you think, hope you have a fab weekend xxx

  7. The Total Cover foundation has gotten very mixed reviews, more negative than positive if I'm totally honest and my customers have complained about it too. I love the original Volumnious mascara, it gives great volume, length and a touch curl. The packaging is very different though so I'm not sure if this is the same one.
