I was looking for a lower cost alternative to my NARS Sheer Glow for everyday use. I am a Siberia/Mont Blanc shade in NARS and bought the 405 Ivory in this TruBlend. The color matches well, and is sheer to medium coverage. I have a bit of rosacea and this does well to tone it down. The pump keeps this foundation more sanitary and it's nice to be able to control the amount coming out. The finish is more matte and looks nice with or without a powder finish. I like this MUCH more than the Maybelline Fit Me foundation. A nice drugstore alternative to high end products.
I have used this foundation ever since I started using makeup. I know this isn't the BEST foundation out there, but I have a fear of trying out new foundations because of my skin. I have EXTREMELY pale, oily, dry, and acne prone skin and this foundation has kept everything under control. It matches me amazingly, it isn't orange on me or pink, it really matches quite well. The only thing I really don't like about this is it is quite sheer. I have the color 405 and I use about 3 pumps for my entire face. I have to use quite a bit of concealer but that is fine with me. It does last pretty long for me and it doesn't make me oily or break me out. I would not repurchase this if I were not afraid to try out new foundations, but I am for some reason. I think I will continue to repurchase this until I will finally find a better foundation.
I like this product a lot. It goes on easy, and blends well. It may not be for everyone, but it matches my skintone and has not casued any breakouts on me. It lasts for a few hours depending on your environment. I live in Florida, so I usually have to do a touch up during the day because of the humidity. The colors I purchased was 1 in 205 and 210.
I used this foundation daily for about 2-3 months. On some days it was really awesome, it made me look glowy and radiant, but on some days it looked really patchy. I didn't change anything in my routine so I still have no idea why it worked so differently. But in any case, if its patchy you can fix it by applying more with any luck. It lasted quite long as well (going out for a whole day was no problem). The most awesome part was that the colour and the undertones matched my skin perfectly so it looked really natural. I stopped using it because I moved and could no longer find it but otherwise I'd definitely repurchase!
I've been using this foundation for the past year or so, and while I do like it, I've recently started thinking about switching. I have very fair skin, and this matches and blends really well with my skin tone. It provides a pretty good base for makeup and doesn't look gross and cakey like some other foundations I've tried.
Unfortunately, I have acne prone skin, and this doesn't do a great job of covering my blemishes for more than a few minutes, nor does it last on the rest of my face for more than a few hours. By mid-afternoon, I find that I have to reapply. On good skin days, I love it, but when my skin is acting up, not so much.
I would recommend TRUblend for anyone with normal, non-blemish prone skin looking for a sheer-light coverage foundation.
This was my first foundation and I have to say that even I can tell that it's not the best. It covers well enough, but it makes my face feel all... crumbly? Especially around my T-Zone. So most days I just go without it and just use some concealer for my trouble spots. I'll buy it again if I can't find anything else to suit my needs, but I highly doubt that.
This was my first foundation, i loved it for occasional uses. Around the end of November in 2011 i found a pimple on my cheek, i started using this daily. Big mistake. This product broke me out so bad, it doesn't cover up blemishes but instead leaves dry patches. It had a very pink tone to it which looked a bit odd for my yellow undertone skin. It doesn't last very long, specially around my nose area. I did like the bottle it came it, it was hygienic, it came with a pump, a glass bottle to see how much you have left and it's travel safe because you can lock it.
I've been using this foundation for about 2 weeks now, and I love it! It looks beautiful when matched with powder, but I wouldn't use it without powder. I of course love the pump, and it matches my skin tone well.
This was my HG foundation for the longest time, I've gone through bottles n bottles of this stuff! It was a nice fit to my skin, gave a dewy kind of finish that was easily gone with some powder so no complaints there! It also had a lovely pump!! The packaging was ok, nothing really speical about it. It has some downfalls. First of all, I find it slips off my face! I have oiler skin so its harder to find a foundation to stay. This was not it. It says "blendable minerals" but i found it sat on my skin rather than blending when i tried to layer it. It didnt cover much either, found myself putting quite a bit of concelar on. So if your looking for a lighter makeup (not to cover blemishes) and are more of a normal to dry skin this is definatly a foundation worth trying!
I bought this because my last drugstore foundation was almost finished and I decided to try out a new one. I got it in the lightest shade b/c my skin is super fair, I first put it on and it seemed to match well! The coverage was medium (what I wanted) and it felt smooth on my face. However by the time I was done doing my makeup, I'm pretty sure this had oxidized or something because my face looked waay dark and almost orange! Gross! So the next day I tried mixing it with moisturizer and applied it again. A few hours later my skin looked dark and cakey. I do not recommend this foundation even though the packaging is nice and it looked the right shade- it just turned out to be terrible. Still on the look out for an HG drugstore foundation :(
