Full disclosure: I’m insanely picky when it comes to foundation and it’s been a long (long) journey through my makeup-wearing years to find the one that doesn’t make my skin freak out. My requirements include but aren’t limited to being lightweight but pigmented and something that doesn’t fade off before I’ve even had my second coffee (which is earlier in the day than I care to admit—I really love my coffee). When the L’Oréal Total Cover came across my desk, I have to admit the creamy, almost-moussey texture made me skeptical, but once I applied it, I realized that it’s got the winning combination that’s been missing from my life. The blendable lightweight formula conceals everything I want covered, but let’s my skin breathe with a natural not-cakey finish. Plus, it makes me look awake, even if I haven’t had coffee number one yet.
