Estée Lauder Double Wear vs the two L’oréal Infallible Foundations – In-depth Reviews and Ingredient Analyses

I admit I am a little late in reviewing the very popular L’oréal Infallible foundations, but I just somehow didn’t get round to them until recently. So many beauty products, so little time! Anyhow it’s finally time to have an in-depth look at both L’oréal Infallible foundations, the Total Cover (the one in the tube) and the 24H Fresh Wear (the one in the bottle) and also compare them against the staple of foundations for oily skin, the Estée Lauder Double Wear.

Let’s get straight to it!

Here’s a summary, green background = positivered = negative, grey = equal/neutral. For all the details keep reading or jump to the category you are interested in.

Note that the table contains some information from different categories together in one, in order to keep it short. For detailed information on each see each category section below.

Packaging

The Estée Lauder Double Wear comes in a beautiful, blue and gold, cardboard outer packaging. The foundation itself comes in an elegant but simple and expensive looking and feeling, frosted glass bottle with a gold metallic (thin metal that sits on plastic) cap. It doesn’t have a pump, although you can buy one from Estée Lauder for £5, but you really don’t need one. It’s quite liberating to be able to use as much or as little foundation as you like, and you will quickly get used to pouring out the exact amount you need.

The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover foundation doesn’t come with outer packaging and the foundation is contained inside a squeezy plastic tube. The tube is sealed twice though, once with an inner seal on the tube hole but also with a plastic wrapper around the tube cap.

On the other hand, the L’oréal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear comes in a glass bottle with a pump. It also doesn’t have outer packaging but comes with a small sticker that holds the cap to the bottle. It’s not as easy to know whether someone touched this one.

Neither L’oréal Infallible foundation looks as luxurious as the Estée Lauder one but for drugstore products they look great.

Winner: It’s hard to beat the elegance and beauty of the Estée Lauder Double Wear (DW).

Estée Lauder DW 1 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 0 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 0

Coverage and Finish

All three foundations give a matte finish and look natural IF you find the right shade for you.

The Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’oréal Infallible 24H have a medium coverage that is buildable to almost full with two layers. The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover on the other hand, is slightly heavier and gives better coverage with a single layer but is also buildable to two if needed.

However, the more L’oréal Infallible Total Cover you use the more cakey and heavy looking it becomes. Additionally, the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover kept coming off throughout the day with just a simple touch and so the coverage was only really full at the beginning of wear.

Winner: Equal.

Product Texture

The Estée Lauder has a medium thickness but still easy to flow liquid consistency whereas the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover is a very thick cream. On the other side of the spectrum, the L’oréal Infallible 24H is quite thin and watery and feels a little strange to have to dispense from a pump.

Winner: The Estée Lauder Double Wear has the perfect middle ground consistency whereas the L’oréal Infallible foundations are either too thin or too thick and require extra blending attention or extra product if they get absorbed too much by the sponge/brush you use.

Estée Lauder DW 2 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 0 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 0

Pore/texture hiding

Although the Double Wear doesn’t accentuate pores it also doesn’t hide them and even uncovers them if they were previously hidden with a pore minimiser product (and believe me I’ve tried most of them out there and many different application techniques).

On the other hand, both L’oréal Infallible foundations had an easier time blurring and evening out pores without even the use of a pore minimizer. However, the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover created a bit of a cakey/craking texture around textured areas and places where the face moves often (like around the mouth).

Winner: The L’oréal Infallible 24H was kind to pores and didn’t create texture.

Estée Lauder DW 2 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 0 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 1

Cost

The Estée Lauder Double Wear 30mL bottle retails for £33.50, whereas, the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 30mL tube retails for £9.99 and the L’oréal Infallible 24H 30mL bottle for £10.99.

Winner: The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover is a cheaper product.

Estée Lauder DW 2 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 1

SPF protection

The Estée Lauder Double Wear comes with SPF10 which is low and is one of its drawbacks, as it falls short from the minimum daily recommended SPF15.

On the other hand, neither of the two L’oréal Infallible foundations contain a stated SPF but the L’oréal Infallible 24H does contain some UV absorbing compounds.

However, I don’t consider foundations with low or no SPF unusable as it is very easy to add a day cream, primer or even sunscreen in your daily skincare, before wearing the foundation. Remember that SPF is not accumulative and the protection you get is the highest SPF factor you are wearing, so whether your foundation has any SPF or not it makes no difference if you cover it otherwise.

SPF protection is a must at all times, to find out more check out Everything you need to know about sunscreens and SPF

Winner: The Estée Lauder Double Wear contains SPF10.

Estée Lauder DW 3 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 1

Colour availability

The Estée Lauder Double Wear is always the queen of this category with an amazing 54 shades. What’s even better is that the shades also include neutral, cool or warm undertones, which is something that a lot of superdrug or cheaper foundations do not do. It’s really the little details that will make the foundation look natural on you and finding the right undertone can really make or break the look. Even if you find the right shade, if your foundation is for example, more yellow than you are, it will look strange!

Estée Lauder specifies the undertone in the shade codes, for example I am a 1N2 Ecru, where N stands for Neutral but there are other shades where C stands for Cool and W for Warm.

The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover comes in 9 shades which are described by a number and generally worded colour description. Similarly, the L’oréal Infallible 24H comes in 26 shades that are also described by a number and a generally worded colour description. Neither of the two L’oréal Infallible foundations are as detailed as the Estée Lauder Double Wear in terms of neutral, cool or warm undertones and are also hard to find all shades in a single store as drugstore items tend to be stocked in selected shades.

Despite the limited colour range of the L’oréal Infallible foundations I was able to easily find the right colour matches for me which are: shade 9 Light Sand in the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover and shade 130 True Beige in the L’oréal Infallible 24H for an Estée Lauder Double Wear 1N1 Ecru in winter and 1N2 Ecru in summer.

Winner: I haven’t found a foundation range yet that beats the Estée Lauder Double Wear’s colour range.

Estée Lauder DW 4 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 1

Blendability

All foundations blended well but the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover was a little harder to blend because it is so thick whereas the L’oréal Infallible 24H needed extra attention and product is some areas that over blended because it is thinner product.

Winner:The Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation has the perfect consistency that helps with blending as well.

Estée Lauder DW 5 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 1

Oil control

Both the Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’oréal Infallible 24H kept me matte all day long when they were worn with two layers.

However, bear in mind that I always use the Paula’s Choice RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defence Broad Spectrum SPF30 under my foundations, which not only gives a reasonable SPF protection but also helps to keep me matte.

If you missed this post check out: A nourishing, mattifying day cream with SPF – Paula’s Choice RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defence Broad Spectrum SPF30 – In-Depth Review and Ingredient Analysis

On the other hand, the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover struggled to even stay on my skin as it came off with even gentle touching and so did very little in controlling my oil production. In fact, my skin felt oily all day long because of the foundation not drying out.

Winner: Both the Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’oréal Infallible 24H give a matte finish all day long.

Estée Lauder DW 6 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 2

*NOTE: If you find that you are too oily and these foundations do not keep you matte with 2 layers on, try the Paula’s Choice RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defence Broad Spectrum SPF30 underneath and if you are still getting very oily you will know it’s time to revise your skincare routine. I went from being so oily you could fry eggs on my face to having normal skin by using the right skincare consistently.

Longevity

The Estée Lauder Double Wear is the best foundation for oily skin longevity. I usually put it on in the morning and it lasts for more than 12 hours without re-touching. This foundation is so amazing it survives the elements well, including sleeping, drooling, raining, even a bucket of water in the face.

The L’oréal Infallible 24H wasn’t bad either but there were times when I found small scratches on my face or areas where small amounts of it came off. It also didn’t survive the elements as well as the Double Wear but it wasn’t bad. Overall, the problem is nothing that wouldn’t be fixed with a quick patting in but that’s the point, you might need to quickly re-touch it.

The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover on the other hand, was just bad. It kept coming of constantly, I could literally wipe it all off with a tissue. I am still shocked about the behaviour of this foundation as I know that many beauty gurus speak very highly of it but for me it was just really bad and unusable. Perhaps I got a bad batch? Who knows but even if that was the case then it might mean that this foundation is not stable throughout its batches and therefore, if you buy it you will be risking getting a bad one.

Winner: The Estée Lauder Double Wear is superior in longevity but the L’oréal Infallible 24H wasn’t bad.

Estée Lauder DW 7 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 2

Transfer proof tests

As I mentioned above, the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover foundation was not transfer proof at all, I could wipe it all off with a tissue and somewhere halfway through the day I got so fed up with it that I literally did just that.

Winner: On the other hand, both the Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’oréal Infallible 24H are transfer proof unless you wipe them with force. Patting is your friend!

Estée Lauder DW 8 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 3

Practicality of use – user experience

The Estée Lauder Double Wear is very easy to use, even if you don’t have the pump. The foundation runs out of the bottle easily and blends into the skin effortlessly.

The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover is a little harder to use because of it’s thickness requiring a little more blending power but the L’oréal Infallible 24H is easy to use because of it’s pump. However, it is a thinner foundation that also requires a little more attention during blending to avoid creating thinner lines and textures.

Winner: The Estée Lauder Double Wear is the easiest to use but the L’oréal Infallible 24H is not bad.

Estée Lauder DW 9 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 1 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 3

Smell

All three foundations smell very faintly of a foundation. They are neither pleasant or unpleasant and you will likely not smell them unless you put the product close to your nose.

The L’oréal Infallible 24H is the only foundation that contains added fragrance.

Winner: Equal.

Estée Lauder DW 10 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 2 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 4

Oxidation

Before we get into oxidation, bear in mind that all foundations (or coloured liquids) will darken a little after drying and so a slight darkening in colour is not exactly oxidation (it’s evaporation of solvent) which means you don’t need to buy a shade lighter. Foundations also darken after hours of wear as they become “dirty” and mix with your sweat, oils and environmental debris.

Neither foundation oxidised but all three became slightly darker when they dried which is normal. However, the effect was not big enough to consider getting a different shade, at least for the shades I tried.

Winner: Neither foundation oxidises significantly.

Estée Lauder DW 11 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 3 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 5

Waterproofness

Only the L’oréal Infallible 24H foundation is labelled as water-proof and although it didn’t fall apart with a splash of water it also didn’t survive the elements as good as the Estée Lauder Double Wear. It was still good though.

The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover couldn’t even stick to my skin and kept coming off to the touch so I didn’t even try splashing my face with water. I just wanted the foundation off.

Winner: Both the Estée Lauder Double Wear and the L’oréal Infallible 24H can survive small amounts of water.

Estée Lauder DW 12 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 3 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 6

Other

The Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation lasts for 24M whereas, the L’oréal Infallible foundations last for 12M. However, that’s not really a realistic difference, you will use all of them up in 1-3 months if you use them often. If you don’t use a product for a year (12M) it’s time to throw it away!

All three foundations are for normal, combination but mostly, oily skin. If you have dry skin you will likely hate all three of these foundations, with the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover being the worst and the L’oréal Infallible 24H the most tolerable.

The Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’oréal Infallible 24H photograph well with no flashback. The Estée Lauder Double Wear looks slightly better for distance photography whereas the L’oréal Infallible 24H was a little better for close ups as it smoothes up those pores a little better!

Considering that my face was caking within the first few minutes of wearing the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover, I didn’t even consider testing it out for photography.

Here’s what Estée Lauder says about the Double Wear foundation:

The UK’s No. 1 Foundation.* 24-hour staying power. Flawless all day.

This worry-free, long-wearing makeup stays fresh and looks natural through heat, humidity and nonstop activity. It feels lightweight and comfortable and won’t change colour, smudge or come off on clothes. Now the flawless look you see in the morning is the look you keep all day.

Also, you can now dispense the perfect amount of Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup with a convenient, reusable pump.

Estée Lauder DW 13 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 3 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 7

Ingredients

The Estée Lauder Double Wear contains 20 ingredients of which 13 will offer you some skincare benefit or make the foundation better (like last longer, adhere better to the skin, absorb sweat and oils etc), 1 potential negative and 4 irritants.

The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover contains 13 ingredients of which 6 will offer you some skincare benefit or make the foundation better, 1 potential negative and 2 irritants.

The L’oréal Infallible 24H contains 36 ingredients of which 19 will offer you some skincare benefit or make the foundation better, 3 potential negative and 9 irritants.

Neither foundation has a high skincare value but that’s ok they are meant to be makeup. The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover formulation is very basic, as basic as it gets almost for foundations, whereas the other two are a little more skin conditioning.

Are any of the two L’oréal Infallible foundations a dupe for the Double Wear?

No. Both foundations are fairly different ingredient-wise, with the L’oréal Infallible 24H being the closest but still only at about 40% similar and the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover only 15%. Function-wise the L’oréal Infallible 24H is still not an exact dupe but behaves similarly.

Winner: The Estée Lauder Double Wear and L’oréal Infallible 24H are similarly skin conditioning but the Double Wear has less potential negatives.

To keep this article short, I am only listing the skin nourishing or skin positive/negative ingredients (or in this case ones that make the foundation function better in some way) and ignoring the ones that only play formulation purposes. For the full list of these products’ ingredients scroll down to the “full list of ingredients” section.

Ingredient positives for the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation:

  1. Water based formulation.
  2. Cyclopentasiloxane – A solvent that enhances fluidity and gives a silky feeling. It can also temporarily fill in wrinkles and creases. Can lock in water by forming a protective barrier on the skin.

  4. Butylene glycol – Skin conditioner that can also prevent moisture loss from the skin. Sometimes also used as fragrance.
  5. Tribehenin – Skin conditioner and softener.
  6. Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate – Skin conditioner good for sensitive skin.
  7. Magnesium Sulfate – This compound serves more formulation purposes than skin care, like for example texture enhancer, bulking agent etc. However, it can also serve as anti-flammatory fighting acne and blemishes. Absorbs oils, good for oily skin.
  8. Tocopheryl Acetate – A more stable form of vitamin E. A hero anti-oxidant molecule. A skin conditioner that also enhances the ability of sunscreens. Can help with inflammation. Check out: Vitamins C & E – Do they work in skin care?
  9. Polymethylsilsesquioxane – Creates a lubricating, smooth, silky feel and increases the skin’s ability to repel water. Anti-caking agent.
  10. Methicone – Skin conditioner. Also forms a film barrier for makeup to stick to, which can prevent sweat and oils from coming through. Also prevents water loss. Anti-static agent.
  11. Xanthan gum – Skin conditioner. Holds water and improves the shelf life of the product.
  12. Alumina – Anti-caking agent that can also absorb oils.
  13. Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate – Anti-oxidant to help maintain the product’s properties after being exposed to air.

 

Ingredient positives for the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover:

  1. Water/Aqua based formulation.
  2. Dimethicone – Creates a barrier and can therefore protect the skin. Also acts as a skin and hair conditioner. When used on the skin it leaves a silky feeling and can even fill in lines temporarily.
  3. Glycerin – Found naturally in the skin so can be seen as a skin replenishing ingredient. A skin conditioner that helps improve and smooth the appearance of skin. A good moisturiser that is almost always present in moisturising products.
  4. Dimethicone Crosspolymer– Can sooth and soften the skin.
  5. Salicylic Acid – A BHA that can act as an exfoliant, hair and skin conditioner. An aspirin like compound with anti-flammatory effects which is popular in acne treatments. An effective exfoliator that can penetrate and clean pores. Has anti-microbial properties and can improve skin thickness, barrier functions and collagen production.
  6. Aluminum Hydroxide – Can act as a skin protector.

Ingredient positives for the L’oréal Infallible 24H:

  1. Aqua/Water based formulation.
  2. Dimethicone – Creates a barrier and can therefore protect the skin. Also acts as a skin and hair conditioner. When used on the skin it leaves a silky feeling and can even fill in lines temporarily.
  3. Isododecane – Can minimise colour transfer.
  4. Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate – A UV absorber.
  5. Trimethylsiloxysilicate– A mild adhesive, making the foundation stick to your skin. Also helps form a protective barrier on the skin and minimises moisture loss. Weightless feeling.
  6. Butylene Glycol – Skin conditioner that can also prevent moisture loss from the skin. Sometimes also used as fragrance.
  7. PEG-10 Dimethicone – Skin conditioner and emollient.
  8. Titanium Dioxide [Nano]/Titanium Dioxide – Protects against UVA and UVB. Nano Titanium Dioxide is usually coated and does not penetrate the skin.
  9. Perlite – An absorbent good for oily skin, helps control sweat and oil production.
  10. Nylon-12 – Reduces shine and mattifies.
  11. Isopropyl Lauroyl Sarcosinate – Skin conditioner and binder.
  12. Diisopropyl Sebacate – Skin conditioner.
  13. HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer – Anti-caking agent.
  14. Bis-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone – A skin conditioner.
  15. Magnesium Sulfate – This compound serves more formulation purposes than skin care, like for example texture enhancer, bulking agent etc. However, it can also serve as anti-flammatory fighting acne and blemishes. Absorbs oils, good for oily skin.
  16. Dipentaerythrityl Tetrahydroxystearate/Tetraisostearate – Skin conditioner.
  17. Acrylonitrile/Methyl Methacrylate/Vinylidene Chloride Copolymer – A lightweight filler.
  18. Tocopherol – Refers to a class of compounds with similar activities to vitamin E. A skin conditioner, anti-oxidant and fragrance agent. Check out: Vitamins C & E – Do they work in skin care?
  19. Silica – An absorbent and anti-caking agent, good for oily skin. Can improve spreadability and help the product adhere to the skin. It can even prevent setting of the product ensuring that it is evenly pigmented. Silica is only dangerous as a powder and when inhaled in so there is no significant risk here.

 

Ingredient negatives for the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation:

  1. Alumina– Although it is approved by the FDA and BDIH, the metal itself can bioaccumulate and it is a neurotoxin. However, it is believed that it does not penetrate the skin.

 

Ingredient negatives for the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover:

  1. Polysorbate 60 – The Cosmetics Database notes cancer concerns and toxicity when this ingredient is used at high doses.

Ingredient negatives for the L’oréal Infallible 24H:

  1. Alcohol Denat.– There is evidence suggesting that low molecular alcohols (denat. or not) damage and dry the skin. This can in turn enhance the penetration of other compounds into the skin, although sometimes this might not be a negative.
  2. Aluminium Hydroxide – The metal Aluminium is a neurotoxin. However, it is unclear as to whether this form (and if so how much) of Aluminium can pass through the skin and accumulate in the body.
  3. Parfum (Fragrance) – This ingredient represents an undisclosed mixture of compounds that give the product scent. There’re more than 3000 molecules that fall under this category and I personally do not like that there are some ingredients that are undisclosed and hidden under this general name. Fragrance also does not offer any skin care benefit, in fact there is some evidence that it can damage the skin.

 

Ingredients that can cause irritation to some:

This is actually really case specific, as different people have different sensitivities and allergies. Just because a compound has been reported by some to cause sensitivity, it doesn’t mean you will have an issue. “Sensitizer” compounds being present is not a negative in my opinion, as this is the case with pretty much everything out there and funnily enough I’ve seen products that are targeted specifically for sensitive skin, containing some compounds that have been reported by some, or are known to be, sensitizers.

If you have sensitive skin or you are prone to skin sensitisation and unwanted reactions, try a little bit of this at the back of your hand first and consult a medical doctor if you are concerned.

Check out: What is sensitive skin? What are the causes and what can we do?

The following compounds present in the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation have been either proven or claimed by some to be sensitizers, irritants, allergens etc: Butylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methicone, Phenoxyethanol.

The following compounds present in the L’oréal Infallible Total Cover foundation have been either proven or claimed by some to be sensitizers, irritants, allergens etc: Phenoxyethanol, Triethanolamine.

The following compounds present in the L’oréal Infallible 24H foundation have been either proven or claimed by some to be sensitizers, irritants, allergens etc: Alcohol Denat., Butylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum/Fragrance, Hexyl Cinnamal, Isobutane, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol.

Verdict 

With a final score of Estée Lauder DW 14 vs L’oréal Infallible Total Cover 3 vs L’oréal Infallible 24H 7, it is very obvious that the Estée Lauder Double Wear is a superior foundation. However, it is worth noting that the L’oréal Infallible 24H was not a bad foundation at all, especially for everyday/casual use. The L’oréal Infallible Total Cover though was totally unusable for me!
