I used to use this foundation about 2 years ago for a few years. I never had break outs with it but wanted to try new foundations. I tried MAC SFF and it gave me horrible cystic acne. After trying A LOT of different foundations today I caved in and bought my old stand-by, L'Oreal True Match in W1.
It covers my acne scars well and feels nice on my face. I don't understand why I ever stopped using it before.
I did a lot of research on this product before purchasing it. Apparently, I was hoping for more than it could deliver. It did not blend well into my skin. It looked like I was wearing a mask and appeared very heavy. I tried various ways of applying it only to come to the same unnatural result. My undereye lines were even more exaggerated by this makeup. I am very disappointed in this purchase.
This product dissapears right off my face.
The colours are gorgeous.
If only the staying power was better.
This was relatively expensive and the packaging can get messy.
I was so happy when I bought this, because it's so hard to find a foundation that truly match my yellow tone Asian skin. but after using it for a couple of times, it ended up in the trash.
I have normal skin, but this foundation made my skin so dry and some fine lines appear on my face if I use it.
but I think it might be good for oily skin or very young girls.
The only foundation I have ever found that is a match for my skin because I am so pale.
Its not the best foundation I've ever used but it has pretty decent coverage and the fact that it matches my skin makes it a winner :)
Loreal has a good product on their hand. It does not irritate my skin or clog my pores.
In Canada its pricey but worth it.
I bought this product after reading in here that it matched MAC's NC15, and I have to say that I am pretty happy with it. I have pretty fair skin, but I tan easily and don't want to spend a fortune buying a lot of different tones for throughout the year. I also have pretty oil skin on my t-zone, and even when I repowder with a powder, I don't get zits or a cakey look. The onnly complaint I have is the price. In Canada, it was 13,99 at Superstore. It's a little more than I would have liked to pay, but still. If you are looking for a good dupe for MAC's NC15, this is one of them!
This may be the best foundation I've tried, and I've paid a lot for some. I'm a C4. My skin tends to be dry, and I'm not that young, so I was hesitant to try an oil-free formula, but this stuff is just magical. Blends great, feels very light but has amazing coverage... so much so that I am skipping the concealer step, as another reviewer mentioned. Looks natural and fresh. Can't say enough good things about this product, which cost less than $10. Will definitely buy again and may try other products from the same line.
I HATE THIS! Okay, I'm a light olive complected lady and none of the colors in this line match! There are better products both more and less expensive that match better to various skin colors than this!
Finally, a foundation that matches my skin color!
I've searched for years to find the right color for me. Everything from MAC to Estee Lauder to dermatologist brands, nothing would match my fair skin because the lightest colors always have way too much pink for me, and everything else is way too dark. I needed a very fair color that was just neutral, not pink based.
I love the fact that this makeup is divided into warm, neutral, and cool colors. Why don't most makeup brands do it like this!? Anway, L'Oreal True Match color N1 (Soft Ivory) is a near perfect match for me. It's a nice neutral fair color with more yellow tones than most ivory shades. I also tried W1, which is a bit lighter than N1 and looked too pasty-white on me.
It's more liquid-y than other thicker foundations like Revlon Colorstay. It takes some blending at first, because with the liquid-y consistency, it gets a bit streaky and takes a minute to dry, but it sets to a super smooth finish. (I use a MAC 188 brush, that helps). It has really healthy and radiant color, no flat/masky look. The coverage is very nice, I'd say medium buildable. I don't need to use concealer at all with this, not even under my eyes. It doesn't get shiny on my oily t-zone, but it gets a slight dewy look, which is actually really nice.
The bottles are really cute. I love the fact that they're clear glass, and the design is really simple and clean. It does have a pour top instead of a pump, but it's easier to pour than most foundations because the top is very short and flat, so you can see exactly how much is coming out.
I love this stuff. I think it's way underrated. I actually kind of look forward to putting it on. Having something that truly matches my skin color is really comforting, the texture is really pleasant, and the bottle is so cute!
Edit-- one thing about this foundation, it rubs off easily if you touch your face, so I took a lippie off for that. It is not a long wearing foundation. However, if I don't touch my face it stays looking great, and I'm still loving the color match!
