I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I have repurchased this twice already. I use W4 Natural Beige. Out of all the drugstore brands out there, L'oreal does a great job in the yellow category. I am Asian with STRONG yellow tones, and by strong I mean if there is any pink, my face will not match my body. In MAC, I am a NC30 - NC35 (and even then it's still a little pink. C35 powder usually helps make everything a little more yellow). Hate the packaging, I hope all brands would jump on the pump band wagon. Just makes life easier. Also the price is ...ehhh....******, which is about the going rate for any foundation (give or take a few dollar). I have combination skin, oily T-Zone and the rest of the face dry. After a couple of hours, my face becomes a little oily. A blot here and there through out the day and you should be fine. If i wear this foundation everyday for a week, my skin usually breaks out around my nose, but it happens with any foundation. My skin needs to breathe once in a while so I can't wear it every single day. Overall, the color is what keeps me coming back to this product.
I have been using this foundation for years, it's great and applies wonderfully. It's hard to find the right shade because there are so many and it didn't help that walmart was always out of a couple. I ended up with a shade that was too light and one that was too dark, so I mixed them together and voila! perfect match.
It doesn't deserve a bad rating because it has too many shades though.. unfortunately places like walmart or other drug stores don't have professional beauticians to help you other than to give an opinion. Having half the samples missing doesn't help either :p
I took off a lippy because of it's cheap quality. Now that I'm in my mid twenties my skin needs to be taken better care of.
I've been searching for a similar foundation with better ingredients but I have yet to find one!
Doesn't make me break out with my everyday use, covers well and doesn't look oily or greasy throughout the day. I recommend this if you're just looking for a cheap foundation but I'm not a fan of the ingredients.
This foundation made me breakout so badly and get flaky skin. Plus this foundation doesn't cover up AT ALL. I do not recommend it to anyone. The only good thing I can say is the color choices but the product overall just sucks.
Amazing! I have VERY pale skin. As well as severe acne scaring and breakouts. I've used every drugstore foundation available and this has been my go to foundation for the past 4 years! It has a soft matte finish and with a light dusting of powder I'm set for the day! typically keeping it on 14-16 hours a day, I'm a nurse, and this foundation holds up and is matte! The best drugstore foundation. ONLY kind I have found to fit my PALE skin!
Could not get this product to set. Tried many different primers and powders over top. Felt greasy. Not so great coverage. Smelled like butter which is not a smell I want on my face. Maybe someone with normal skin would have better luck.
It makes me sooooo greasy without even a bit of a coverage. HATE IT!
I really like this foundation. Its one of the only drugstore foundation that has a shade that matches my skin. I use w7 (NC44-45) and it has great yellow undertones. I just wish it has less of that beige tone to it.
-very easy to blend
-satin-semi matte finish
-very oily skinned people NEEED to set it and wear a oil contron primer
Really good coverage, blends in perfectly if right shade is used. Gives a natural, dewy look.
I really wish this foundation worked for me! I mean, I still wear it but I can only wear it on days when I know I wont be wearing makeup for long. This stuff just doesnt have the staying power to last.
I have combination skin, in the winter im more dry so I would like to see if this product works better on me then. But for right now in the dead of summer this foundation doesnt cut it. I find myself looking shiny about 2 hours into wear, and I just get increasingly more shiny throughout the day. After 7-8 hours of wear my foundation is visably rubbing off my face, in the nose area I see the foundation like...separating and the redness under coming through. I can take my finger and wipe off the makeup and oil in one swipe.
The colour selection! My god I feel like this is the first time in a long time that my foundation is the EXACT right shade for me. I am very fair with warm undertones and I can never find a pale enough foundation that doesnt make me look pink. Also, the blend ability and coverage is exceptional. This can build up to a nice medium coverage, with a satin finish. As much as I hate how shiny I get with this foundation it really does look great on! I like to use it on days when I just have to run errands or I just need something quick to cover some redness. I will be saving this and trying to use it again when it gets cold out and I have super dry skin!

People who want a short wear foundation
$8.99 at Target plus had $1.50 off coupon. was looking for a foundation that had more coverage than my Covergirl Clean foundation, but that didn't feel heavy like my Covergirl Stay Fabulous foundation but still had the same coverage. was browsing through a little advertisement book for this that i got in my Cosmo magazine. one of the models who was wearing W6 seemed to have the same skintone as I do, so i chose that shade. also, swatches it on my wrist & it blended in PERFECTLY. put it on before work, blended like a dream (hence the name trublend!) lol. always been a fan of l'oreal products, they are just so pricey. this was one of there less expensive foundations. i still want to try the new nude liquid powder foundation from them. covers well. lasted all day at work (score). didn't irritate my skin like a lot of foundations do. great coverage. didn't feel heavy at all. not super pricey, especially with coupons. downside: hate the old fashioned packing- no pump!! really?! a pump would be so much better but oh well. i actually worked out tonight...intense cardio, lifting & running & it still is on my face going strong. i've had it on for 13 hours & it's not as flawless as it was this am, but it still looks nice!! it only wore off a LITTLE & that's after a long work day plus exercise. i didn't set this by the way, so not sure how it would be if it did set it with a powder.
overall, i'm satisfied. been a little disappointed with the foundations i've been using lately (covergirl) - the one (clean oil control) is really nice but sometimes i feel it's not enough coverage & it doesn't do much for oil control & the other one (stay fabulous) gives great coverage exactly what i want but feels heavy on the skin, especially when it's hot out!
i love the coverage of this & the fact that it's so lightweight. also the fact that i didn't have to break the bank. i was considering going back to MAC & getting my old trusty Matchmaster foundation, but i may not have to do that now that i found this. that will save me lots of $$.
great shade range..tons of shades for all skintones. :)
