I got this in W4 (light/med asian with yellow undertones). I used Maybelline's Tru blend and it gave me a white and pink finish so I was a bit skeptical about True match. After giving it a test run during the day I have to say this is probably my HG foundation. Its summer here and I'm normally oily by the end of the day. This foundation dries to a powdery finish and you have to work quickly because it dries pretty fast. I found it balled up a little after a few minutes of applying it on my skin - but that doesn't concern me. I can understand why some pple say it turned orange on them but I'm glad that didnt happen to me. It stays matte for a few hours but if you don't use blotting tissue or re-apply powder you will become oily. The packaging is terrible - small glass vial but thats probably why its cheap-ish (AUS25). It's very runny but it gives a medium coverage with decent staying power. I didnt find it heavy but it takes a strong cleanser to remove it from your face. Also, it is true what everyone is saying - moisterise and exfoliate before you use this because it does accentuate dry patches. I used this inconjuction with my Bloom loose powder in Honey and finished with a dusting of MAC blot powder in medium. I will purchase W3 for winter. I'm very impressed with this product. UPDATE: Been using this for a week now. PURRRFECT! No breakouts, good staying power, great colour and makes me glow! UPDATE 2: Its been 6 months and this foundation seperates on my skin after 3hrs. I have to blot and reapply powder or else I am shiny and cakey looking. *sign* I really loved it.

I purchased C1(supposedly for people with pink undertones). I liked it at first but then it turned orange. There's no pink in it at all. It's a good foundation, it's colors just aren't right.

I love this foundation. C1 matches my skintone perfectly, and it gives me just the right amount of coverage. It's the best drugstore foundation I've tried.

Skin: Acne-prone, Dark, Not Sure
This is the worst foundation I every bought before in my entire life. I was really hoping to like this product after seeing the advertisments and one of the models was actually my complexion which is dark brown. My color selection was the darkest one in coco which is C8. It looked so light in the bottle I kept thinking this can't be coco but I brought it anyway since the girl in the ads was my complexion I thought maybe it wolud look different once applied. I was wrong! The color made me look like a ghost and it just felt weird on my skin too powdery and gave very little coverage. Even if my color did match I still would not have liked this product.

This is a nice foundation in that it goes on feeling so soft and powdery. However, it doesn't do much for my oily skin. It also absorbs a lot even with moisturizer underneath and I have to reapply later in the day (mind you, I apply my makeup at 4 in the morning! So maybe its acceptable that it needs to be reapplied at 2 in the afternoon??LOL!). Easy to match shades and affordable price. I still prefer Prescriptives and/or MAC foundations but in a pinch or when I don't feel like paying high price, this is fine.

I liked the idea for this product, and the wide shades of colors it came in, but when it comes down to it, this is not a great liquid for people with acne-prone skin. It is NOT oil free, causes breakouts, and makes skin slick and oily. Even the texture is slippery and oily. Color matched nice, but the formula wasn't right, and the packaging was bad! Glass bottle + wide opening = potential mess.

This foundation is soooo amazing! it completly covers up flaws and redness and any other imperfections! it totally lasts all day and doesn't make me break out at all. it's so great, it completly gets rid of the redness on my cheeks and evens out my skintone. It's the most blendable makeup i've ever tried and i found the perfect match for my skin ( Soft Ivory). Try this! im sure you'll love it!!

This is one of my two favorite foundations! I first bought it last summer in one of those trial packs with 3 shades (those mini-bottles are so cute-great for travel!) I got the W2-N2-C2 set, and actually all three looked okay on me- I have fairly neutral-toned skin, but the N2 was perfect! I ended up buying it in the full size. It goes on so smooth- my skin looks satiny and perfect. My skin is normal with occasional blemishes, so this really looks like my skin, only better. I don't know how it would work for someone with very oily or very dry skin, or someone prone to a lot of blemishes. I ended up getting the N3 shade, too, for when I have a bit of a tan. I am so pleased with this foundation, and I'll definitely buy it again!

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.
