okay so here is the thing, I got this in a sample size. I really like it, The color match is right on and its, well, super blendable =) but reading the reviews here, a lot of ladies saying its very thin and watery. The one I have is the sample size and is very thick. almost like a mousse, so thick that the top has a plastic stick (for lack of a better word) attached, to scoop it out of the bottle, and that's one of the things I like, that its so thick, but applies smooth and blends nicely with med coverage.. so maybe ill stick to the samples as long as I can find them at Conway 1.99 for 3 sample sizes.
I bought this foundation when I was on holiday in UK and had forgotten my make up bag (OMG). It was the only foundation I could find in my colour. When I first put it on it looked really pale, but over like 10 minutes it had adapted to my skin colour and looked really nice. After like 2 weeks of using it though, my skin became spotty and dry around my nose and mouth. Ew, this has never happened before. I have carried on using it though as gives really good coverage, but now I have to use all sorts of spot treatments and home made face masks...huge effort! I would buy another foundation but I live in Turkey and we get honestly like no good foundations. So I kinda love this foundation as gives good coverage and everyone always compliments my skin (really!?) when Im wearing it. But also kinda hate it for doing this to my face! And also it stays on even when doing a huge workout at the gym. Unless you sweat alot then it gets a little streaky! Also the bottle is ok, but the pump always gets a little clogged up.
After reading great reviews on this foundation i decided to give it a try. the great thing about it is that it goes on smooth and sheer with buildable coverage. However, i tried a few colours but i could not find a great shade for my skin tone. i have a very golden undertone and even the warm shades goes ashy on me. We don't have lots of color options in Canada unfortunately. :-(
Will wait for more color options before i buy again.
First liquid foundation that I bought, recommended by a friend. It does its job and that's that. It does make me feel caked up, but it does its job. Feels heavy on my face by the end of the day...
I have tried various foundations from Revlon, Maybelline, and Rimmel, but I have to say that L'Oreal's true match makeup is my favorite drugstore foundation, and one of my favorite liquid base makeup formulations overall (that's including BB creams, tinted moisturizers, powder/cream/liquid foundations) for coverage, shade match, finish, staying power, breathability, ease of application, and a little sun protection to boot.
I matched to W4 Natural Beige. This line of foundation has the widest shade selection I've seen at a whopping 32 shades spanning warm/yellow/olive, neutral, and cool/rosy/pink undertones. It's fairly easy to match shades to the inside of your wrist while browsing in-stores because the bottle is clear and the shades are true between in-bottle and on-application, with little-to-no oxidation. It gives even, natural-looking, medium and buildable coverage (not dewy, not too matte), it's not exactly lightweight but it still feels comfortable to wear, and it lasts 8+ with setting powder over it.
It also does not smell strong—in fact I can't smell anything from the bottle—compared to foundations from Revlon, Maybelline, and Rimmel. It's a little surprising it doesn't even smell like sunscreen, because it has a decent amount of sun protection ingredients backing its SPF17 (still recommend an actual sunscreen product underneath). The formula is oil-free, but as someone with combo-oily skin, I normally find myself blotting at least once during the 8 hours that I try to stretch my wear over. This foundation sets well though and doesn't transfer while I'm blotting.
At $7–11 for 1oz (30ml) of quality product, this foundation is my happy medium between the cost effectiveness and lightweight wear of Maybelline foundations and the coverage and staying power of the more expensive Revlon foundations.
I love this foundation. Ive been searching for a foundation thats light enough for my skin. I have extremely fair skin and was delighted to find a foundation thats fair enough. I bought the porclain W1 , compared to mastermatch mac 01 which is sopposed to match to your skin tone which just gave a yellowy line between my neck and face. This however is cheap and a awesome fair skin shade. the packaging could be improved with a pump makes it more hygenic.
I absolutely love this foundation. I don't know why there are so many negative reviews about it! I am an N2/W2 , depending on the season. Seriously. Anyways, both of these colors look great on my skin and the foundation feels light yet I get great coverage. It never oxidizes on me. I can wear it casually or for a night out and never worry!
This foundation oxidizes almost always, thats annoying because I use(d) one of the palest shades (N1), it goes pinky/orange. Application feels quite terrible, coverage is medium/does enough for me. I don't know if I'm just picky but theres a smell to it that I don't like one bit. If i am ever to give this foundation a second (more like, third at this point) chance it will be with W1 (body is yellow toned, face is neutral). As for how long it will last has been dependant on the powder, but even then drugstore foundations aren't always known for staying power.
I have a love hate relationship with this product. It looks so good when it's freshly applied, but after a few hours it just melts on my face and gets super oily. But in those hours before this happens it's the best foundation I've ever had. Perfect coverage, texture and tone - until after a few hours...
My first time buying this product was exciting. I thought it was going to be better than Covergirl make-up but it really wasn't what I expected. It makes an even application, but after your face gets oily, it starts to look very shiny and it wears of pretty fast. I use rice paper to prevent my face from becoming oily but even then, I don;t have full coverage. It also feels thick and heavy and maybe even a bit sticky. With powder over it, it just looks like a mask. It would probably have been better if it was a bit more watery.
