I bought a sample of this product and I really liked it. I decided, after much deliberation that I was pale/warm. It matches really well but I think I just don't dig liquid foundation. Great color but I would much rather have this in a cream form.

I have extremely pale skin with a pink undertone, so it is very difficult for me to find a pale foundation that does not look orange on my pink white skin. Alabaster (C1), though not perfect, is the closest match I have found—its pasty and it’s pink! In the past I’d have to dilute my foundations with moisturizer to try to take away some of the orange effect (especially with Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.) With I’m more than pleased with the colour, this foundation is very watery and does not give very good coverage (which I really need given my acne scars.) I’ve also noticed that my skin gets oilier during the day using True Match. If they could take the Alabaster shade and use Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse formula, I would be in foundation heaven. Still, I'd probably repurchase.

Drugstore foundations must be getting better--this is the second one I have tried that I really love (Neutrogena Visibly Even is the other). I have combo/oily skin which usually gets a visible shine by early afternoon. This foundation kept the shine at bay (although didn't eliminate it, but nothing will), went on with a satin finish, and had good coverage--I would call it medium coverage. It blends beautifully, and of course the color range can't be beat. I've been using this for 3 weeks now, and so far, I can't complain. I am very impressed with the quality and wearability of this foundation. Highly recommend. Update: Ended up giving me deep cysts. Too bad, I liked the formation.

Me- nc/42, I have olive/yellow undertones with large pores. My skin is acneprone sensitive, very oily in the summer,and flaky in the winter.Well, I love the shades wish all drugstore brands would hop on this bandwagon.I love the little bottle it could fit in the smallest purse which is good for the "small purse party scene". The shades were fantastic. I could go we either w7/ or n7. I bought the n7, because i do tan in the summer. Love the shade, hate hate hate the way it feels on my skin. I just wanted to wash it off by 12 noon. I could feel it just sit on my pores UGH!Don't believe i will buy this again, but I love the color-sigh.I doesn't really dissapear on my skin like the Revlon age defying foundation. I wonder if CVS will take it back? Good price though it was under 10 bucks on sale.

I'm on my second bottle of this after wearing Armani foundation for a full bottle. This is comparable to the Armani silk foundation, IMHO, and priced far far below it. The only way they could make this better would be to give it a little more coverage. I wear the palest shade in a neutral. Had to wear the cool color for one bottle, but the second bottle I purchased was the palest neutral and I'm looking forward to it. I've finished the first bottle and am starting on the second.AMENDED to note I am now on my third bottle of this. Amazing!!!

This is great for precise color matching and goes on like a dream, the "feel" of it in application is very smooth, soooooo.... I was very pleased the first time I put it on....it looked natural and evened out my complexion fairly well without looking too heavy. Unfortunately, a little look-see in the mirror a few hours later changed my good opinion of it...what little that appeared to remain looked blotchy and the drier areas of my face seemed to be very unflatteringly accentuated.

I tried this several times and each time it left my face an oil slick by noon. No staying power at all, even when set with powder. I really did like the color (W2) and the coverage, but will not be purchasing this again.

Awful, awful stuff. I used this for a few months and kept experiencing breakouts, no matter what I did. Benzoyl peroxide, aspirin mask, nothing really helped. They were so persistent and so bad (often even cystic, which I'd never had before) that I thought my breakouts were hormonal. Turns out it was True Match all along. [I didn't really make the connection at first because it has a fairly light texture and other reviewers didn't seem to have this problem]. But now that I haven't used this in about a week, my skin has improved DRAMATICALLY. My breakouts are *gone*. I'm using MAC Studiostick now, which (somewhat surprisingly, as it is a stick!) I have no problems with.

I like that there are a greater range of colors with this makeup. The coverage is pretty good and it does feel satiny when you put it on. It might just be because of my dry flaky skin, but this foundation, like others I have tried, accentuate the flakiness and my large, clogged pores. When I use this it is very noticeable that I have makeup on IMHO, even when I exfoliate well. I think this might work better for someone with better skin texture than mine, though.
