There's no denying it, Helen Mirren certainly wowed in yellow Dolce and Gabbana on the red carpet at this year's Cannes Film Festival. 

And though we were momentarily captivated by her dress - and those diamonds, wow! - we also couldn't help but notice that her skin was looking particularly flawless.

Luckily, we've got the inside scoop on exactly what helped her achieve the look, and you'll be pleased to hear that the product in question is just £9.99 from L'Oreal, which available from Boots and Amazon

Yes, you read that correctly. 

In fact, Mirren, a L’Oreal Paris spokesperson, had her entire beauty look created using affordable products by the brand - from her foundation to mascara and blush.

However, it seems Helen Mirren isn't the only fan of L'Oreal Paris Infallible More Than Concealer 

The L'Oreal Paris Infallible More Than Concealer offers a high-pigment elastic formula for full coverage, but doesn't feel heavy, stick or greasy - giving you a lightweight feel (and ultra long-wear staying power so it will stay in place the entire day without settling into creasing or fine lines). 

It's easy to apply yet precise, and can be blended easily with the large applicator. 

With 25 shades in the range, it's easy to find the shade that suits you which will brighten, contour and conceal wherever you want.  

Plus, it's the perfect travel go-to as it can fit in your handbag and be dabbed on whenever you feel you need it. 

What the reviews say:

With over 300 reviews on Boots' website, the affordable item turns out to be a hero product in many women's make-up bags. 

  • "Bought this with little expectations, but blown away. Amazing full coverage that isn’t cakey and honestly the best drugstore concealer I’ve ever tried. Full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy and is very liquid-y so it doesn’t crease loads. Never written a review before, but I am so pleased with this. 100% recommend."

  • "I’ve had this concealer for about a month and it feels and looks very dry. If you like the matte look it’s perfect but I prefer a more natural glow which this does not give..."

  • "The best concealer for imperfections."

  • "I am so glad I tried this. If you apply it carefully with your fingers and dab it in and then dab gently with a soft dense brush, it stays all day with some setting powder. It is the only concealer I have tried which stays put and never looks like anything is there! I hope they always make this product as it is a lifesaver with imperfections and scars from old spots etc."

  • "I have very noticeable dark circles and this is the only concealer that covers them properly. A little goes a very long way so I avoid using a lot because it looks quite dry but when using this product wisely it really compares to concealers like tarte shape tape."
