I only bought this after seeing Beautymoxie talk about this on her videos. I like this as well as, or better, more HE foundations. This works better for me if I dot on sparingly then rub in with a soft brush. It provides great, natural-looking coverage that wears well
Love this! I was looking for a new foundation one day, so I headed to Walmart, and was looking through all the makeup brands until I came to L'Oreal, and they had a true match foundation bottle with a pump! lol, so I thought I would look at that. I remember not liking the original True Match years ago, it oxides to much and was heavy, but this foundation promised to be dewy, luminous and healthy for your skin (unlike the original without a pump). So i noticed there was a clear plastic sheet with all the foundation colors on them, and it said to put it close to your wrist and which ever shade disappears that's your true match. Well W3 (warm nude beige) disappeared, and in close second was N4. So I picked up W3 and brought it home. And man, it is my perfect shade. It matches my skin perfectly! I would say this is a medium coverage foundation, with a slight dewy finish. My skin is normal to dry, so this is just right for me. By the end of the day my skin still looks nice and is not greasy or splotchy. I think if your skin is on the oily side, I would stay away from this. On the bottle it claims to have extra vitamins and antioxidants to help keep skin clear and healthy looking, which i've noticed a little difference. The good thing is that this foundation doesn't break me out, which is amazing because I have a hard time finding foundations that don't. I love this foundation and for $10 dollars and the perfect shade that doesn't oxidize and looks flawless on, I will keep repurchasing.
I was skeptical about my color however I went close as possible to something similar to my revlon whipped foundation which I love and use in true beige N5. I absolutely love this foundation it is medium to heavy coverage however I just pump few dots into my face and work into it with my stippling brush and Whalah flawless face. I need to try it with the beauty blender as some others. I work and under very hot conditions my makeup stays on and doesn't melt and run across ur face and does get a bit splotchy and shiny in the middle forehead but I dab a few powder to conceal and it's perfect. Other than that I would repurchase love how it makes my face look and smooth out lines and pores, plus blends so true to your exact face color and has SPF
I won't ever buy this again. My skin is pretty normal- not too oily and not to dry. Here are the pros and cons of this product. PROS- true match products blend really easy with all skin tones and don't feel cakey or leave "makeup lines." I like how well matches my Spanish- American skin. It also has a nice squirt pump as a dispenser so you can easily control how much product your getting. CONS- it makes MY skin feel oily, and like I mentioned before- I have really normal skin. This would be absolutely terrible for people with any kind of oily skin. If you do want the radiant glow you can't set it with any kind of powder, or it won't show up and it'll just look like any other kind of foundation. OVERALL I won't be buying this again because it makes my skin feel gross and it looks weird.
I was iffy about the color range offered but I picked the darkest one and crossed my fingers. Surprisingly, it matches the summer, slightly tanner me perfectly! If I use half a pump, I can get light, even coverage that looks luminous (as promised!) and natural when I blend with my fingers. If I use a full pump or use more than one layer, I get dewy full coverage. The only thing I don't like is that without a primer, the foundation dosen't stay long on skin. I would see brown streaks on the collars of my clothes. Still, one extra step that would prevent oily-ness anyway is not a hassle for me.
I was a little skeptical about buying this from the review. But none the less I went to walmart and tried it out for myself.. I LLOOVVEE this foundation it gives a medium coverage which can be buildable I used a beauty blender to apply this set it with some Fix + FLAWLESS.!!
AWFUL for oily skin. Even with primer, oil absorbing moisturizer, and setting spray.
This just melted off my face in less than 2 hours. It was very light coverage, runny, and had an odd smell. Not a good foundation for the $13 price tag.
I'm not really sure why people with oily skin are reviewing and complaining about this foundation- its like the equivalent of if a person with dry skinned used a matte foundation and complained about looking dull. Anyways....I have dry skin and have been using this foundation for about a year now and I really love the radiant glow that it gives to my skin! I wear shade W1-2 and it is a pretty good match to my summer skin tone however in winter it is too dark so I really wish that they had made shade 1 and 2 different and not tried to blend them! I would say that the line caters decently well to those with both really dark and really light skin except in the cool tones where they start at shade 3...not really sure I understand why. Since this foundation is naturally very glow, just to make sure that it really stays put I do apply some translucent powder on top and I find that my slightly more oily areas stay under control for about 3 hours without blotting on a normal day. By the end of a 10 hour day this definitely has worn off on me a little bit on my nose and the middle of my forehead but it doesn't go patchy at all so I am not bothered by how it looks and I usually don't need (or expect!) to look flawless for 10 hours anyways. Just as a bonus point, the foundation comes in the most beautiful glass bottle packaging and I find that 2 pumps applied with my beauty blender gives me somewhere in between light and medium coverage. This foundation is a bit pricey at $19.99 in Canadian drugstore but I really think it will be worth your every penny if you have very dry to dry/combination skin and are looking for a lightweight, glowing foundation.
I was so excited when I bought this product because Lauren Curtis of Youtube swore by it, claiming that it was a better foundation than the MAC products she normally uses. I thought the packaging for this product was GORGEOUS! However, this formula made me break out like crazy. I don't know whether or not I should give the regular True Match formula a try, because part of me thinks the reason I'm breaking out is because of the "Lumi" effect. I also disliked the fact that it had such a high SPF content. If I wanted a pace product with SPF I would use BB cream! Either way, switching back to my old foundation ASAP!
I have REALLY oily skin and all this did was make my face look like I had dipped it in bacon grease. It made me break out as well.
