I LOVE this foundation. This is my favorite foundation of all time. It's super silky, smooth and feels lightweight but gives great coverage. I'm in the shade w4 Natural beige and it matches my yellow/olive tone skin perfectly. It's so hard to find drugstore foundations for people with yellow or olive undertones.. most drugstore foundations tend to run very pink which looks awful on me. Also this foundation doesn't break me out at all. This is my hg foundation for sure.
After mac studio fix powder (c40), this foundation is near-perfect match to my skin tone. I like how loreal did a classification of their shading range from warm neutral to cool. And they even have to make a 4.5 because it's the color most people have. Clever!
Texture is okay, tho when I use and apply more I get streaking effect. So it is just meant to be a medium coverage liquid foundation. Now, if they can only make a more satin, skin-like less-matte and no sunscreen version of this product, il give it 5 lippies. Their lumi line doesnt work well for me, shade is ruddish for a supposedly warm tone.
Another selling point to this prod is it has a generous amount for the money I spent on it. My night time wax-based cream foundations which I occasionally use are always hitting pan-bottom after 3-4 applications only. So I can consider this as an economical one.
Maybe Il buy another of this, until I get to find my perfect HG daytime liquid foundation.
I simply love this foundation.it made my skin look flawless and subtle.I would definitely buy this again but i know there are also other superb foundations on the market so right now i'm on a lookout for them.
I love this product for its colors but I have skin that become oily by 9AM and this makeup just makes me feel EVEN MORE OILY. I don't like how I look in the sun I look super duper shiny and I hate it. The texture of my face is just gross
To me this products texture feels like paint ! It doesn't last very long I have combination skin on my dry spots it looks awful and scaley on my oily spots it just doesn't stay and looks like I have water paint on my face this product is just not for me
I feel the easiest way for me to share my opinions and thoughts on
this foundation is to write out a list of pros and cons. I am a makeup junkie and I absolutley love trying and buying new products, especially foundation- liquid, creme, mouse, powder, I love it all!
Okay so let's start with the Pros (the good) of True Match:
-It's a medium to full coverage foundation with build-able coverage
(meaning, you can keep adding more to get the perfect coverage,
WITHOUT LOOKING CAKEY AND GROSS!);
-This product is not kidding when it says SUPER-BENDABLE because it really does blend so seamlessly into the skin. I use a brush to apply, and then a blending brush and blending pad to get rid of any lines you may have;
-It's oil- free and has SPF 17, I never break out from this foundation, I love that it's oil free because with my combination skin, I would rather moisturize with my own products before applying this foundation over the product containing any kind of oil. The sunscreen is just an added bonus, because it eliminates one extra step in the summertime when I need it most;
-They have an enormous range of colors- I cant even tell you how many. At least 20. It's pretty simple to find a shade that best suits you. If you are unable (which is highly unlikley), the colors are able to be blended together;
-They also have three separate collections of colors for cool undertones, neutral undertones, and warm undertones- which makes all the difference when trying to find that right shade;
-This foundation suits ALL SKIN TYPES! (Oily, Combo, & Dry);
-This tiny bad boy lasts quiet a long time, I can't tell how much I have left in my bottle, but I've already had mine for easily over 6 months;
Okie dokie now moving on to the Cons (the bad) of True Match:
-The packaging isn't the best, because it's a glass bottle and it can break easily. This has never happened to me, however I have seen this happen in makeup aisles in the store several times;
-Also the packaging is very inconvenient because you have to pour out the foundation onto a sponge or a brush- so sometimes it can be pretty messy because you have no control over how much product comes out;
-There is a lot of product that ends up getting wasted because there is no pump on this bottle;
-And the last con I can think of is that it doesn't work perfect with my skin during those few times a year when my skin gets REALLY dry and flakey. I moisturize, prime, and apply this to my face and it almost looks like I have scales, with all the dry patches and the makeup making it ten times worse.
As you can see I have a lot more GOOD to say than BAD, therefore I am rating this foundation 4/5 lippies!
Last, I will recommend this foundation to EVERY woman- fair, olive, dark, dry, combination, oily- it works well for all skin colors and types. Also, I will absolutely repurchase these foundations again. I use them for my Makeup Kit thus why I have several of the colors. They mix very well too for those who can't seem to find the perfect shade. continued >>
I love this foundation. There is no odor, and the coverage is very buildable. It lasts all day and doesn't sweat off. There is also a HUGE range of colors which is great. It's only about $9 and it has lasted me over a year.
I don't recommend it for people with very oily skin, as it can get a little shiny.
The only con of this is the packaging. There is no pump, making application less convenient.
This product has the most foul smell that I have ever encountered in a foundation, the finish on the skin is glowing but the smell is horrendous! The pump also gets clogged quite quickly (In the uk it has a pump).
firstly lets talk about the foundation. It is poorly package. A lot can come out at once. Although if you use to much it seems cakey. This foundation how ever is amazing. Great colour! I would buy this again! Now for the concealer, I've been using the stick and I've purchased the wrong colour, however last time I didn't purchase the wrong colour and it was AMAZING!!! I just bought the liquid concealer and lets see how it works!
I still remember buying this product. I had high hopes for it. I had researched it on youtube and figured that I'd read up on it. I was mistaken, though. I have now come to find out that this product is fantastic for people without oily skin. I'm one of the very unfortunate women that has uncontrollably oily skin. This foundation somehow made my face look patchy and oily at the same time. It wore off in a matter of hours, every single time I applied it. I do admit that it is very easy to blend. I often find myself thinking, "It's only $8. Should I try it again?" Then I remember why I cannot stand the product.
