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.
