I tried this in N2, as it is hard for me to recognize my undertone regardless of all the "tests" you can do to find out. It was too pink for me and too dark, I think I will try one more time with W1 and hope it isn't too yellow. I have a really, really hard time with foundations as my skin is extremely fair (yeah I'm a PPP) and seems to be a bit on the warmer side and it's hard to find something that's light enough for me in ANY brand and not too pink. Hopefully this will work. Besides the color problem, I like the slick consistency and it had decent staying power and light to medium coverage.

First of all, it is extremely hard to buy foundation that matches my skin tone (I am Asian, almost between N20 & N30, but not quiet.) And second of all, my face turns reddish a few hours after I apply foundation even if I do it with expensive ones. But this one does trick for me. I just love the fact that I am not turning red after a few hours. Also, sheer coverage works for me. To match my picky skin tone, I experimented with W2 and W3 and came up with perfect ration of 1:3. If you like the texture but are concerned about the color, I suggest you buy 2 of them and try to come up with your own color since the product is not expensive.

I don't get this product. It made my pores look huge and also made my skin look very dry and cakey. Maybe its for younger skins?

Good foundation for its price. Blends pretty easily and does not feel too heavy. Personally, I like it for evening use because its gives medium coverage that shows a little too much during the day.

I found a GREAT color match (N3) -- it blends right in! It goes on really easily and dries to a somewhat powdery finish. I really love the apothecary-ish bottle, too. :)HOWEVER. This made me greasy like no other (even with loose powder) like an hour after application. I'm talking grease that even Dawn dishwashing soap would have trouble getting out. Plus, I suspect it *might* be breaking me out, but I'm not sure. :(Too bad, cuz the color match was REALLY good for me.

I soooooo wanted to love this foundation. I think it would have worked beautifully, but it's NOT oil-free and I have normal to oily skin, so it broke me out *cries*. Will try again if they come out with an oil-free version.

I did like the feeling on the skin, but I didn't like the range of the colors: vanilla (or something)- the lightest color in yellow was FAR TO YELLOW to wear for me. Even though I have really yellow skin, it did't suit me. I gave it to my friend

Color matched my NC-15 skintone well. Consistency is ok with medium coverage. I bought the neutral tone in the lightest shade. The warm and cool seemed too yellow and pink for me. I do seem to have a little of both undertones in my skin though. Would buy again, but I don't use it all that often, I think because of the consistency. It just doesn't make my skin feel like it is "finished" like some other foundations do.

Who exactly is this meant to match? I dig the concept: L'Oreal is trying to jump on the Prescriptives bandwagon by recognizing that undertone is at least as important as "light or dark." The difference is that Prescriptives is a department store brand, so it's feasible to have lots and lots of options in stock. L'Oreal clearly had to cut corners, the result being that the "Warm" range jumps from W1 (Jaundiced Vampire) to W3 (Orange Julius). The consistency is runny, and True Match goes on like tempera paint.I'd also point out that "exact match" makeup lines work because of the trained rep behind the counter. I know I have yellow undertones from being Color Matched and Color Me Beautifuled, but truly most girls I know would have no clue. And wearing "browns, oranges, and dark greens" (as suggested on the display) is not an exclusive or reliable indicator that you're a Warm. Fair-skinned Warms are sometimes washed out by colors that dark and have an entirely different palette.
