Overall a great product for the price. Doesn't look cakey and can be built up slightly for some added coverage. Keeps my t-zone from getting oily but needs to be touched up after a few hours, as with most powders. Both hinges (one for mirror/brush side, one for powder) have broken off, which is the only problem I have with this product.
First of all, let me say I have tried virtually every drugstore foundation available, and NONE of them have had the exact shade of my skin. I always avoided the L'Oreal section because all of the Cool, Neutral, and Warm shades confused me.
One day, though, Target had a sale on L'Oreal powder foundation, and I bought it thinking that I would just end up returning it for not being my shade. I was wrong.
I fell in LOVE with this powder! It goes on very smoothly and evenly on my face. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup when I put this on. The shades that they have are AMAZING once you understand how they work. I can actually pull off 2 shades: C2 (natural ivory) and N2 (classic ivory). No one can tell that I'm wearing any makeup. Like someone else mentioned on here, this foundation matches your shade, but even better, if that makes any sense. It makes your face glow!
I will admit, $10 is a little pricey for drugstore makeup, but go to Kroger or Walgreens when they have a buy one get one free sale. It is really worth the money!
A lot of comments on here say that the shade doesn't match their skin. Those people obviously chose the wrong shade, because there is a shade for everybody with this powder. I've tried Maybelline, Revlon, and Covergirl, and none of them have worked and blended as incredibly as L'Oreal's True Match.
awful... made me break out with white heads and bumps :(
I'm on my fourth of these powders. I always come back to this powder for two reasons: (1) the color selection is amazing for this line, and there isn't just a good match but a *beautiful* match, as in it's like my shade but *better* and that has a lot to do with the naturally luminous quality of the powder; the same can be said with the liquid foundation in this line titled Superblendable Makeup (2) I have dry skin, and pretty much avoid powders; this is one powder that doesn't dry me out nearly as much as others.
If you have oily skin, you'll have to reapply in the middle of the day (hence the four lippies.) I know this because I used to have normal to oily skin (yes, this can change) and I had to reapply once or twice, but it's really quick and easy to reapply. And the end result to me was absolutely worth it. And it still is, even with dry skin. I love the finish of it. Other powders with the same finish don't seem to have the same effect.
Packing is pretty good--the only issue I have with it is that it'll break if you drop it about two times. But hey, it's cheaper than MAC's powder and I prefer it to MAC's so I'm letting them go on that.
I have tried other powders, and always seem to come back to this one. It's not too heavy, the color options are lovely, and it looks natural when applied with a powder brush. It also does NOT make me break out (unlike MAC, which did). I'm quite fair, so I use Porcelain, and it looks great. I also love the blush (Baby Blossom is my color) from this same line - not so much the liquid foundation though.
I really like this, but it's definitely no good for concealing any marks on the face. It feels really light and fine and I think that even if you bought the wrong shade, it wouldn't be a big deal because it's so light. I would just use this as a light dusting powder, not a foundation powder.
This is awful color and texture. The powder is visible. Not a good selection.
I'm not a big fan of foundation, although in my "old" age I find that I need a little something to even out my skintone and make me look more polished for work. As a NC42, I tried this in W7 (caramel beige) which was too dark. I exchanged it for the W6 (sun beige) which is a great match. It has a good amount of coverage and I don't need to wear foundation underneath. So far I am pleased, and crossing my fingers it doesn't oxidize on me!!!
Let me start off by saying the color selection for this powder is amazing! I found my perfect shade. It looks so natural on me. The powder has an even, natural looking coverage, and doesn't change color on me during the day.
The only down side to this powder is that it doesn't control oil very well. My nose gets shiny after an hour of wearing this, and I'm not liking the smell that comes from the product either.
Other than those things, this is a decent powder.
This powder goes on smoothly and gives very light coverage, however it does not last long on my combination skin. It tends to become greasy and thick the longer it stays on. It does accentuate dry areas a LOT so if you have dry skin, this is not for you. Actually, I feel like normal skin types are the only skin types this will work well for. This powder works better for me during the winter when it's not hot out.
