Been buying this foundation for years now. Nothing else compares. I am very fair and this is the only brand that has my perfect shade. Great texture. Very smooth, natural looking foundation. I am hooked for life!
I've bough 4 bottles of this foundation! It's amazing! By far the most blend able foundation ever. I'm NC30 and W4 is a perfect match. I think it is great for all skin types. but if you do have oily skin i'd wear a good primer and set with powder. it's about medium coverage and that's all I need really. the true match powder is also my holy grail.. Def recommend this foundation! only con would be it doesn't have a pump, but it doesn't really bother me much.
After seeing many rave reviews about this product I thought I'd give it a go as I'm obsessed with getting my skin looking as flawless as possible. I got mine for £10 (and this was full price) which I think is ridiculously cheap as I have been using it for a couple of months now and still have about a third left. It doesn't leave your skin looking dewy and shiny which is great as I hate shine on the face. It also seems to go on so thinly and the product itself isn't very thick which worried me as I like full coverage but it somehow manages to make my skin look amazing and cover all red patches so well without even feeling like you're wearing anything. I don't have to top up during the day either and that's without any setting spray as I ran out of that a while ago and have yet to buy more. Amazing product.
I really dislike this foundation. It makes my skin look greasy, it doesn't stay put and it doesn't provide good coverage. I definitely won't be buying this again. The concealer and powder from the same line are good, so I expected to like this, but it's the worst drugstore foundation I've tried in a long time.
Absolutely loved the color range (easy to find the perfect shade with pink or yellow undertones) but it was too dry for my skin.
Blends effortlessly and seamlessly. Wish it was a little more moisturizing. Does not have all-day staying power. Medium coverage that is buildable.
This foundation looked amazing on my twenty year old near flawless skin. Now, I have larger pores and uneven texture and it's ok but I just see age in my face more with this. If I do honey masked for my pores and have a good skin day then it looks nice. However I get little tiny bumps on my face after using it, then I have to purge my pores all over again. I personally feel that if you have nice skin and no skin sensitivities go for it. If your like me and used to love Truematch but it doesn't love you anymore, try for a dewy glow look- Jane Iredales BB cream or Nars sheer glow, laura mercer supreme, Giorgio Armani luminous silk is also nice but has silicones. Or for a matte finish Estée Lauder doublewear (great new colors for warm tones although I get those bumps again) or the beautiful Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk, These foundations in my opinion are more "grown up" and investing into a solid foundation is investing in your confident and polished self. They also have amazing colors for my nc 20-30/ w2-w4 skin tone. Good luck on you HG foundation hunt.
I'm pretty impressed to say the least with this foundation. My color is C2, and while I do have neutral undertones I don't find that this enhances redness at all. In fact, I think this foundation evens my skintone beautifully. I tried this foundation years ago, but in W1, and hated it! I found that it was way to orange. Anyway, this foundation is super blendable and is of medium coverage. I was told the other day that I looked better than I had in a long time, and believe me that is saying a lot! I'm 12 weeks into my pregnancy and have been battling all day "morning-sickness" so this foundation definitely brightened my face. I also want to point out that I do have normal-dry skin and this foundation does not "stick" to dry spots. I do wear a moisturizer underneath which is a must for any foundation I wear.
This is one of the best drugstore foundations I've tried! First, I love how they have a wide range of shades so that anyone can find their perfect match. It's so hard for me to find a foundation that has warm undertones at the drugstore! Like the product's name, I found that it blended beautifully into my skin and made it look very natural. It has medium to full coverage without making me feel like I've caked on makeup. The packaging is also very simple and nice too The ONLY complaint I have about this is that it doesn't seem to control my oil all that great in the warmer seasons. For reference, I have really oily skin :( However, it was perfect during the Fall and Winter but once Summer came around, this foundation just didn't do.
I will start with positives, sooo:
The package is very nice, bottle with pump, very hygienic and everything is ok with it.
It has no fragrance which is really perfect.
I bought it just because it was supercheap in the drugstore.
The range of shade is really wide, but it oxidizes. I bought a shade rose-vanille (as I remember) and it looked really good when I was trying it in the shop. I came home and I put it on my skin and I was really surprised how it looked. But after maybe one hour i had like very unhealthy colour. It is really hard to describe.
It doesnt irritate the sensitive skin, but it is drying. Maybe because of all the powders and pigments in the foundation.
The final effect was terrible. It felt heavy on the skin and it looked like I am wearing plenty of foundation and some heavy powder. It would maybe look good on a Halloween party. My skin looked cakey and the foundation was making every little wrinkle on my face more and more visible. I think there are many many many better foundations for the same or maybe even lower prices, if you want to save some money and buy some very good stuff.
I was a bit disappointed because I expected something better. Maybe because of the name True Match. But it wasnt matching at all. :)
This is one of the best drugstore foundations ive ever tried, I know by the reviews on here that some people hate it but for me and for what I use it for its perfect. Im an NC 30 in MAC an I found that the shade W4 is a perfect match in fact it matches me better than my MAC Studio Fix Fluid which has always been a bit off to me. This foundation is medium to buildable coverage-satin/matte finish. When you apply it you will never struggle to blend it out like other foundations (Colorstay) in fact True Match is so fool proof you can use your hands and still get a flawless airbrushed finsh. After you apply and let it set it has a pretty natural finish ,to get a true matte finish use Maybelline Dream Matte Powder which is amazing with this foundation. Now L'Oreal claims that this foundation is for all skin types and that is for the most part true with a few exceptions. If you have Dry to Normal skin this foundation will be perfect it's not heavy and you can customize the coverage just make sure you moisturize very well if your skin is very dry as it tends to cling to dry patches but this problem can be fixed with moisturizer. Now for my Combo/Oily/Very Oily people this is where it might work for you or it might be a disaster. As I said before the finish is Satin/Matte and for dry/normal skin it will stay that way, even more with powder but for us oily people that finish lasts about 3hrs, maybe less in the summer. You will have to retouch a few times because this foundation dosent control oil but it never claimed that. The way I keep the oil at bay is with my Milk of Magnesia it keeps the foundation looking flawless for hours and hours and it keeps the oilies away. I highly recommend that combination to anyone who needs oil control with any foundation. I use this foundation for everyday wear and with the M.O.M it works great and lasts for a full 8hrs. You are guaranteed to find a shade that matches you they have like 30 shades that's awesome for drugstore. Overall im in love with my True Match and I highly recommend it.
(Extra Tip: If you have oily skin and dont want to use Milk Of Magnesia you can use a primer Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro 002 goes great with this foundation.)
