ive only used this product once but it blended perfectly into my skin. my skin usually is really dry (especially in the winter) buy i dont think this powder will be a problem if i moisturize my face properly. the only problem is that my face is a little sensitive and after using my face seemed to itch a little. im not sure it this was the makeup or just a little irritation. i guess ill have to use it more to find out. but i love the packaging, but dont use the sponge that comes with it cuz it just soaks up the makeup and doesnt get any on your skin. also, when you buy it make sure you use the plastic color choice thing to pick your shade. i always thought i was warm but apparently im n8 cappuccino. (this is the darkest neutral shade but it blends beautifully)
i wouldnt recommend buying without using the chart.
bottome line: i like this product so far, but i might need to update later
This looks nice initially, but it does not stay on and that is the number one thing I really want my powder to do... So I would not repurchase.
I have been using this product in soft ivory (n1) for 2 years now. I really do like it except for the fact that there is really no oil control. I have to blot throughout the day. After blotting though, it still looks great! The coverage is very natural looking. A little bit goes a long way. It seems that some people have broken out with this (it does contain talc), but I find that my skin has actually gotten better. Less breakouts! I am currently looking into mineral foundations WITH OIL CONTROL. If this had decent oil control, I would call it my HG. If I don't find another product by the time I'm empty, I will repurchase.
**EDIT** - So I tried my Everyday Minerals and have been wearing it for TWO days. I am already breaking out from this and my oily skin is three times as oily! I have to CONSTANTLY blot all day! :( I am so disappointed. I will be going back to my True Match. My skin has actually gotten better while using this product and it doesn't break me out!
Thanks to L'oreal true match, I have the worst breakout ever! Huge red painful spots! LOTS OF THEM on my cheeks especially. I used True Match for about 2 weeks and this is what I got. I was really disappointed with the product. The oil control was horrid, within 3 hours, my face was greasy like crazy. Absolutely hate the packaging; the mirror is located in another 'compartment' which was really inconvenient!
The only good thing about True Match is the colours are really good and it's easy to find a shade that matches you.
I picked up two of these in a Walgreens BOGO sale and have to admit I was somewhat disappointed. I got warm colors but both had a tinge of pinkness in them. I like that the powder doesn't look chalky upon application but there is little oil control afterwards. There is nothing especialy great or bad about this product imo but I won't be repurchasing.
I just wasn't a fan of this. I got this BOGO Free at work when I bought the True Match Creme Foundation, figuring this would be perfect. I picked them both up in W2. I did like the True Match Creme, it takes a while to get used to, but this was just really dry, and even though I applied after a moisturizer and creme foundation, it made my terribly oily skin dry looking, which I didn't like. So, I'll find some way to use this, but I won't buy it again.
I just bought this yesterday in (warm) light ivory. I hate the smell; I'm not sure if maybe mine is expiring or something, but it smells strongly of clay. I've seen someone else's truematch powder, and I don't remember hers having an odor at all. I like the texture it creates on my face. A true silky matte canvas. It does a decent job of covering redness, but it is definitely light coverage. I don't quite like how it feels on my face... it feels as if there is a slight tightening effect, as if it is soaking up all the oil in my pores. Overall, it is a decent product, but probably not worth $10.50.
I bought this just 3 days ago so I don't know if it'll make me break out but for now I really like this. I bought it in C4 even if i have more golden skin tone (warm) and i like the color it is very natural. It makes my skin feel really soft, my t-zone doesn't get as oily as with liquid foundation, and it has a very good coverage that holds for hours. will definately buy again!
I was so disappointed in this product. It made me really break out. I never ever get acne on my cheeks, and about a week or two after using this religiously I had a big zit on my cheek on both sides and one big one on my chin. The only product change I had done to my routine was this powder. I loved how light it felt on my face and great coverage. Sadly I have to toss it, and deal with the marks it left behind.
Bought this about a month ago and can't say I really liked it. I was disappointed with the coverage (too little) and it has made me break out.
