I like the powder a lot. I have both the N4 and N5. It goes on smoothly and is not chalky. I found it to be very blendable. The colors complemented my true match shades N4 (day) and N5 (I use for night) perfectly. I am very pleased with the true match powders and foundations--I would buy again. This makeup gives me a polished look better than department store brands that cost way more.
yucky!!!! it's true what others have written...it comes on chalky and makes your skin look dry and flaky...i bought this because i like most loreal products and their packaging, but this is absolutely terrible. when i used it with the sponge it came with, it looked like i had plastered semi-dry mud on my face...gross...plus, it made my pores look 500% bigger than they are. not happy at all, but will use as an eye shadow base, not that its that good for that either.
The color range is very good. I did not like the scent of this powder or the fact that it left my skin feeling very dry. Will not re purchase.
I bought this because of the packaging and the color options. The color match is great, but the powder it self is...blah. I really want to love this but I can't. I tried it again today and even with moisurizer, this made my skin looked dry and flaky and you can see the powder on my face which looks chalky. I will not buy this again. I prefer Shisiedo Pureness Mattifying Compact or for something that is cheaper and really good Covergirl TruBlend Powder Foundation.
I am a loyal LORAC powder foundation user but have been trying to find a less spendy drugstore one to carry me through my current broke student status. This has such cute packaging and lots of shades so I had high hopes. After a couple of days my skin started getting flakey. I stopped using it for a couple of days, it cleared up, used it again and more flakey skin.
My skin is not that sensitive so I was pretty surprised. Obviously I wont be purchasing this again.
I just bought this powder compact today at Target for about 7 bucks I think... I have never really used powder previously since I don't break out a lot of have any really weird coloring in certain spots on my face. I used the color guide next to the display to find my color and I'm a C3 which is Creamy Natural. I really like that I could find out my color using the little color matcher thing and this powder really does blend in with my face really good. My mom has warm undertones and even when she used this powder it didn't look weird on her. She only applied it on one side of her face and had a friend decide which side looked better and the friend picked the powdered side! It evens out red blotchiness (spelling?) well and looks nice. I don't really like how the mirror is on the bottom though. The way the compact is set up makes it a little hard to apply but I don't really think it will bug me that much.
This is the worst powder foundation I have ever tried.
It left my combination skin looking dry and the neutral powder (N4) was chalky and too yellow to be called a true neutral. The ultimate test, I tested it on my little sister who has the skin and complexion of an "angel" and it made her cheek look dull and dry. Don't waste your money.
It worked well for me. It didnt cause any breakouts, and seemed to do what i wanted it to. Also had a wide colour selection.
It doesn’t do much in every way. I use it over true match liquid foundation and also by it’s self too…. Color selection is good but the quality doesn’t cut it.
Great color selection!!! Just as good as its partner in crime True Match Liquid Foundation. It does stay matte for a while even though you may need to reapply. True Match should be good for all skin types so TRY IT!!!
