I've tried out this foundation for about two months now. I bought it because of my new job, where I felt like my HG foundation (MAC Face and Body) was too low coverage and was a bit too dewy. My work is often hot and stressful, so I wanted something that wouldn't make me look too shiny in the heat, and something that covered the redness I sometimes get on my cheeks from heat or/and stress.I have normal skin; around my nostrils is the only place where I sometimes get a little bit oily at the end of the day. Not much though. My skin is clear and has no spots or breakouts, but my cheaks are a bit red. I have a yellow undertone and I'm quite fair in the wintertime (NC20) but I tan in the summer. That's about all you need to know about my skin. Also I'm 20 y/o.I bought this foundation in two shades; W1 and W3. They both have a yellow undertone, and W1 fits me when I'm as pale as can be (with a bit of bronzer) while W3 is a good match for my summer/selftanning skintone. When I got home and compared the shades to my MAC Face and Body (C1 and C2), I noticed that the True Match wasn't as yellow though. So if you have a Very yellow undertone, you'll might find it hard to find a good shade match. Also just a note; the foundation contains glitter. It's not visible on the skin but I can clearly see it in the bottle.On the skin the foundation looks not dewy nor matte. To me it's somewhere in the middle. I'd say if you have large pores and you want to hide it this may not be the foundation for you. I have no visible pores at all but if I look really closely at this foundation in the mirror I can tell that it's sinking into every little tiny "dent" in the skin. I'd say it has a medium coverage.After about 7 hours at work the foundation has started to wear of around my nostrils. But it holds up pretty well considering I work in such hot and stressful enviorment. The packaging to me is great; I live in Europe and over here this foundation comes with a pump. I belive I will repurchase this foundation since it's good for the purpose I bought it for. I don't use it apart from when I'm working though, simply because I think there are better foundations out there. But I don't want to spend my money on something high end just for work, and so far this is the best one I've tried from the drugstore.

I know this foundation is known for it's wide shade range, but surprisingly I could not find a good match. I've a neutral undertone, kind of peachy, and so when N2 and N3 were too pink for me, I tried W2 (W3 looked really pink compared to W2 and W4) and I was surprised to find that it's also too pink for me. And I can't even try to make it work because it has really noticeable sparkles in it, so either way it looks unnatural on me. For the staying power, I have oily skin and this will not stay for more than 4 hours.

Where I live, it comes in a bottle with pump so with packaging I didn't have problems. But this foundation just didn't work out for me. I have pretty normal skin with oily T-zone, and this foundation makes a greasy mess on it after an hour or two. It looks amazing when you first apply it and set it with powder, but that's all. It has shimmer or something and that makes it even worse. I wear the foundation when it's not too hot and when I know I will be taking it off after an hour or two just because I want to get rid of it. I'm sorry it didn't work out because I heard a lot of good things about it, but I definitely regret purchasing it.

It is super-blendable for sure! Light coverage which is good for me. I got C1- Alabaster which matches my skin tone without looking too dark. It doesn't oxidize on me or cling to dry patches when I have them. After a while of wear, I can become shiny which never usually happens but it isn't a big deal considering I have the powder as well as the liquid. I love this foundation! It's a bit pricey for my budget, but worth it. The only downside is the packaging. Hopefully, they've reinvent the bottle. It looks pretty but you can easily waste some of the product having to pour it onto the back of your hand.

I really wish I could like this more, but I just can't justify saying too many nice things about it.It has a good colour selection. the lightest shade was ok for my casper-ish skin. It leans a little yellow and I lean a little cool, but it was a manageable yellow.The packaging sucks. No pump. Seriously, l'oreal ?I thought the product blended out to medium coverage quite well (damp sponge) and could give quite full coverage with other methods. The finish was nearly matte, at first. Three hours later, a greasy mess. And I have seriously dry skin - so....ew? It does have spf 17 in it (in Canada, anyway), but for very specific reasons I wear spf 30 every day. This foundation does not play well with other sunscreens. I have tried every sunscreen in my arsenal (I'm a bit of sunscreen collector) and it does do ok over neutrogena dry touch - but not the face version! With the exception of the dry touch, the foundation just wouldn't set. So I powdered. And became a cake mess, which turned to a greasy cakey mess three hours later. A greasy cake mess with dry powdered patches. Hot stuff, let me tell you. Even the dry touch got the greasies three hours in, and I don't like dry touch body on my face anyway.I used the whole bottle up before I wrote this so I'd think I've given it a fair chance. I can conclusively say this foundation breaks me out, and I although I have sensitive skin, it is not generally acne prone. But it got to the point where I wouldn't want to put the foundation on because I knew I'd have breakouts on the sides of my chin, my temples, my jawline and often, my cheek. I did enough controlling for variables, it is definitely the foundation breaking me out.I'm done the bottle and won't repurchase. Usually I'm ok with suggesting people try stuff if their needs are different than mine, but based on my experience and other mua reviews I won't recommend anyone try it, either.

The mixing possibilities to meet your skin tone is a really feature. I find this foundation dries too fast and is difficult to blend properly on my skin. It also feels really heavy making it difficult to build coverage (it's about a medium coverage on the first pass). Overall it's okay, I think it could be better if I found a better application technique. It picks up on my fine lines, pours, and acne REALLY badly though. It really shows them off, no matter what primer I've tried. I haven't given up hope though, I just prefer to mix it with Revlon ColorStay. I think my skin is just too dry in my skin tone for this.

I have used this foundation for several months before giving a review, i purchased it because of the amount of great reviews it was getting on Youtube. I wouldnt recommend this foundation if you have dry skin because it has a drying affect on my skin (normal skin). It looks slightly powdery on my skin too and i prefer a more dewy finish. However the great thing about this foundation is how well it blends, it feels as though it dissolves into the skin. I wouldnt purchase this product again.

I've bought a lot of drugstore foundations and were disappointed because they didn't match my skin tone or were a little darker, but this one is the first I've found from Wal-Mart that has matched my pale skin tone. I had heard a lot of good reviews about this foundation for quite a while, but I never bought until a few months ago. It's a small bottle, a lot smaller than most foundations I've seen. When I first tried this, I was really excited because the moment I put it on my skin, it was actually the right shade. It does cost a little more than usual foundations. I think I bought this for about ten dollars. The only problem I have with it is since my skin is dry and sensitive, I have to use moisturizer a lot before I put this on my face. I used to use the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream underneath this which worked pretty well. Overall, I really do like this product and would buy it again.

I have this in two colors: W3 and C3. W: Warm and C: Cool. So, i took one of those online tests to determine what my under tones truly are and i found that I am COOL. :) I've been using the W3 for several months now, and found that it was too orange for me. I did buy it in a shade darker just because I am very pale and wanted a bit more color in my skin.pros:- color range: if you can get away with buying a shade lighter or darker, then that means there's a pretty good color range. I am at the lightest end of the spectrum and bought the 3rd color (W3 and C3). Now that I have both, C3 color is way better suited for my skin. its not orange on me, and looks way better!! if only i knew beforehand which one i should buy. I think I might try the Neutral shade as well.- the formula: I like the SPF 17, it is easy to blend and work with IF you apply a really good primer underneath (I use Smashbox's pore minimizing primer, amazing stuff). If you don't, i find this foundation EXTREMELY hard to blend. I prefer applying this in the dotted face method, and then i blend it out with my beauty blender. I get a medium coverage. If i feel like getting full coverage, I use a brush.- longevity: this is pretty long lasting, at night time, my face still looks good and the foundation is still in place, doesn't break up or melt off.cons:- the packaging... the bottle does look sleek on my vanity, but oh goodness, the spillage... the spillage!!! the packaging is so unsanitary because there's no pump. I've learned to work with it since using it for over a year now but still wish L'oreal reinvented the packaging.- It does say oil-free but i do still get oily but I'm not complaining because with every bb cream, tinted moisturizer and foundation, I get oily regardless. I've accepted it.
