I have tried a few different foundations, and although I'm not a huge foundation junkie, it's hard to find a good one for my cystic-acne prone skin.
This foundation is indeed, "super-blendable" as it's marketing claims, and also feels really lightweight on my skin. It's currently my go-to daily foundation due to it's lightness - sometimes I even forget I'm wearing it, unlike foundations such as Revlon Colourstay (oily/combo) which felt HEAVY and weighed down my skin, although the Revlon did have a higher coverage (medium-buildable) than this one (light-medium).
I find this foundation gives me a very natural appearance. My skin tends to have a few cystic breakouts here and there and I haven't found it to be the cause. It gives fairly good coverage without any cakeyness, and with a setting powder wears for a solid 6-8 hours. However it does tend to fade a little around my T-zone area when it is exceptionally warm that day.
I would recommend this to anyone with redness or scarring however not heavy skin blemishes due to the nature of it's light coverage.
This is my favorite natural everyday foundation. I used to love full coverage foundations but now I prefer a more natural medium coverage foundation. I have normal skin with just a little redness/discoloration and this evens out my skin tone nicely and lasts all day. I would not recommend this if you have oily skin or a lot of blemishes. I like how there are a ton of colors so everyone should be able to find a match and it is super affordable. The packaging sucks but it's not terrible. I use a beauty blender to apply and normally top with setting powder.
I bought this foundaton after hearing Lauren Curtis go on and on about how amazing it is. After buying it and trying it out for a few weeks, I've decided that I love it but I don't know why. The lasting power is great and so is the colour range. The have warm and cool toned shades as well as neutral shades, which is great for me as my skin is neutral. I have the shade N5 'Sand/Sable' which matches my skin perfectly.
It dries down to quite a matte finish but it doesn't look dry or cakey. It almost looks like a natural, 'my skin but better' finish. I think I paid something like $35 for it here in Australia which isn't too bad for a foundation. I know I haven't done a great job at talking this up but it really is a great foundation, probably my favourite.
I don't understand the hype about this foundation. I have skin that is on the lighter side of the olive spectrum and none of the colours match! The one I bought is too dark and the one below too light!. Secondly I don't think it actually blends all that well. However it does provide good coverage and it did last throughout the day for me.
Does anyone else noticed, that L'Oreal foundations are too watery??
For the price, quality and quantity, that's definite NO in my beauty bag.
This is my absolute holy grail foundation. It is easy to apply, blends well, has buildable coverage and looks pretty natural. I wish it was easier to get hold of my exact shade though - I am N1 and all stores seem to think that only carrying the pinker C1 is enough. It's great to have finally found a foundation that doesn't cost too much and is pale enough and not too pink for my neutral toned skin. I have sensitive/dehydrated/combination skin and it doesn't make me break out or settle into the drier parts of my face. It's not the most long-lasting foundation but it gets me through a work day just fine without losing too much, as long as I use setting powder.
I have dry skin so I can really only wear this if I slather on loads of moisturiser and apply it directly after. It has a thin consistency but gives a medium coverage and does not oxidise. However it does crease around my mouth when I smile and I can only wear it for a few hours before it makes my skin go very prunelike. At times I've looked in the mirror and seen it crack in places , how embarrassing . This also has spf in it and it does flashback in pictures. The lid also tends to fall off which is a pain and a mess.
This is just an okay foundation. It's not great for oily skin and doesn't last all day. Like I said, just average.
I remember using this in high school, this has been around for as long as I can remember. I like the true match pressed powder, so I decided to try this again after a few years and see how I like it. At first it looked great, but as an hour passed I had so much oil on my face! Not only that but it settled in my pores like you wouldn't imagine. I returned it immediately because I wanted my money back.
I used to wear drugstore foundations all the time...Maybelline, L'Oreal, Rimmel etc etc until I started using Estee Lauder Double Wear (and experimenting with other high end foundations). Anyway, I ran out of the DW, happened to be in a Superdrug and ended up buying L'Oreal True Match. I really wanted to like this. L'Oreal foundations used to look great on my skin. But this was just a no no for me. Colour wise, it was perfect since I always use about the lightest one, but it made my face an oily mess. I already have oily skin, and within 30 minutes of applying this (and using primer and powder):
My face was extra oily
I have dry patches in certain areas on my face (around the nose and mouth) and this really made those patches stand out
It made my pores seem bigger (even though they're not that big to begin with)
And the coverage was so so. I have slight redness around my nose and mouth and have a few blemishes that need a lot more coverage.
For what it did, I can't really say the price was worth it.
Using DW, I can usually go about 5 hrs before a touch up, with TM, I just wanted to wash my face straight away.
I tried giving this to my mother but she didn't like it either (she has dry skin) and I'm not really sure what to do with it.
I would say, try to get a sample of this before buying. For some people, its HG material, for others...not so much.
