This foundation is awesome! I would say that this is a medium to full coverage foundation...and that being said, because it covers all my redness and makes my face look flawless. Other "full coverage" foundations can't do that, so I have to load up on the concealer. I don't have to with this, and I always get complemented on how good my face looks. Kind of weird, but whatever lol. I am a MAC NC/NW 20-25, (can wear both NC and NW) and because of that, I chose the shade Classic Ivory N2 (which is from their neutral side) And it matches just perfectly! Can't say enough great things about this. It lasts all day and doesn't transfer. And It's affordable! NEVER discontinue this Loreal!!!!
Great value for the price! Comparable to $50 foundations on the market.
This is an okay product. I got the lightest shade, and its still rather dark for me. It goes on smooth if used with a brush. It can be streaky but it does not cake on like some products, so I like the light feel.
This used to be my HG, lighter coverage foundation. I would mix it with Revlon CS to make it a wee bit more heavy, or apply it alone for a lighter coverage. I have applied it with every tool imaginable, but I like to buff with a kabuki and blend with a damp sponge the best. This was a great mix between coverage and a light finish. The colour selection is why I adore it though. I have insanely light skin and they have a colour to match- Yipee! I now use a BB cream mixed with a wee bit of a heavy foundation for coverage (only because I like the skin healing effects of a BB cream) but True Match will always be a staple in my makeup collection. My skin fluctuates so much, which is why I don't use it as much anymore.. But for slightly discoloured skin, or a few pimples, this foundation is a dream. As I said, great mix between good coverage and flawless finish.
Side note.. Crummy packaging!
I've been using this foundation for over a year. I love loreal products they are drugstore quality. I actually downloaded the app to find my shade and it matched me up perfectly ! I love the consistency although it is liquidy it's super blendable thus the name. The only con to this foundation is that it has no pump so I oftentimes useore product that I should.
When I first tried this they matched me up to the wrong shade and it was much darker. I still tried it though since my previous foundation wasn't working out.
I really liked it, it really is very very blend-able and light weight. Once it set there was minimal rub off and it really helped tone down the redness and shine.
The coverage is light to medium, so if you have any deep blemishes you're going to need concealer.
The second time I went back and got a better shade and it was great.
I tried this years ago and of course returned to my Colorstay. I had a few $3.00 off L'oreal makeup coupons and since the price of this is only around $7.00 at Walmart now I gave it another go along with the Truematch powder. ( For around $4.00 a piece I couldn't pass it up) I choose W2 and I have neutral to cooler toned skin.The C and N shades all look to pinkish to me. I prefer more yellow based foundations as they seem to brighten my face up making it look fresher. W2 is a bit too light but the W3 looked way to dark. This foundation is way lighter than Colorstay but still covers well and its buildable. It takes much longer to set than Colorstay and when it does its sort of a powdery finish. For me this is going to take a bit of getting used to. I topped it off with Truematch powder in W1 (as the W2 powder looked to dark and yellow to me and I prefer translucent colored powder) I wasn't sure if I liked it as first as it was too light and not as full coverage as I am used to. After a short while, I was impressed. Once everything really set up it seemed to mesh with my skin making it look perfected but not heavily madeup. I did use L'oreals primer first and I never use a primer with Colorstay, but I am really liking how I look. Lasting power is the biggest issue with me and its been about 4 hours and still looking perfect. The true test will be in the summer time heat and the long days. Also I really don't think the foundation would work as well for me without the matching powder. The powder is amazing.
I kind of have oily skin and while I love the way this looked in the morning, I had to use about 10 oil botting sheets by the end of the work day. I would imagine this would look great on some people but I do not recommend this or people with oily skin. It looked so shiny that I had to return this product. The beginning result was really nice though. I was sad it didn't work out for my skin type.
As a person with super oily skin, I have to say that I have not come across any foundation that does not melt on me. This is no exception BUT when I use a primer underneath, this lasts on my skin. The texture and consistency are the best features of this foundation. If anyone remembers the old Chanel foundation, Double Perfection, this not far from that. This foundation is buildable and you can adjust the coverage. I am NC30 and I use W4, which has the perfect amount of beige and yellow for my skin tone. I have to say that L'Oreal has done an awesome job in the shades. Although Mac calls me NC30, I am not as yellow. The shade W4 blends perfectly and does not look too yellowish or ashy or muddy. It does not clog my pores and most importantly, it does not cause any acne. I have to let my primer settle before I use this unless it would be hard to spread. If you have dry skin, this is most likely a moisturizing foundation for you. If you have oily skin, wear a primer and enjoy.
This foundation is a nice product for anyone , unless you have dry skin... And i have dry skin. I only have dryness around my forehead and my cheeks,nose and chin have a normal skin type. So i tried it on without applying on my head and it looked nice and bright. Its a shame, so if my dryness somehow clears up i will write another review :)
