I remeber this very well, I used it when I was 16, my first foundation, which my mom bought me. It had a pump back then but let me tell you it was a pain to blend this, as even the lightest shade was too dark, so I had give this up, though I really liked the results and I needed some touch-ups after 6 hours or so but I guess my skin was much oilier back then and it would preform better now, but the shade-issue didn´t change, so I wont repurchase this. But all in all this is a really good drugstore-product and if you can find a shade that fits you - go for it!
Awesome for beginners. Super easy to apply/blend. Medium coverage.
Overall Rating: 4
- Used this for an outdoor photo shoot since it has low SPF. Turned out great! I was a little hesitant to try, but I saw reviews about it on YouTube so I decided to try it out. I sampled some on my face and my friend could hardly tell that I had it on, but coverage was great.
- SO cheap! got it at my local Rite Aid
Packaging Quality: 3
- would be nice if this came with a pump, but I guess since it's so fluid, it wouldn't work out.
Buy this again?
- YES! definitely would once I run out.
I love this product, 3N my perfect color. I have a lot of acne scars on my cheeks and it covers then great. It makes my skin look flawless. When i changed my makeup my husband (who doesn't notice anything) said how nice my make up looked. That alone sold me. The color is amazing, i heard some people say it made them look orange, but i never had that problem. I work at a restaurant and being in and out of the kitchen sometimes my face getting steam in it or sweaty and the color stays way better then anything else I ever used.
Wow. Wasn't expecting to really like this. I bought it because I was sick of foundations having a nasty pink undertone. I like when my foundation has a yellow undertone. So I went into the warm section and selected W3 and its perfect for my skin. The coverage is amazing! From the reviews on here i was expecting light coverage, but its deffinitley full. It covered all my acne with a simple swipe of my foundation brush. The texture of this foudation is wierd, it feels greasy but its not. Its extremely blendable which is fabulous. I will be repurchasing this when i run out. I hope that wont be too soon!
I love L'Oréal's True Match powder, so I thought I would try out the liquid foundation. My shade is an N2 (Classic Ivory). This liquid foundation is great. It is easy to blend and you don't need to apply a lot of the makeup to cover your face. It's a tiny bit expensive for a drugstore brand ($9-$10 for a bottle), but it's a lot cheaper than department store brands. Also, just like the True Match powder, there are 24 different shades to choose from to find your *perfect* match.
Many people are upset that there is no pump. I personally have no issue with that. Pumps usually pump out too much foundation anyways.
Another note: I have found that the N2 powder that I use is my exact match, but the N2 liquid is a tiny bit lighter than my skin tone. It's not dramatically different, but I can tell that the powder and liquid are not exact matches. However, when I use the liquid and then cover it with the powder, my face looks flawless.
I would recommend finding your shade in powder first, and then looking for the matching liquid. Most days I just put on the powder without using the liquid for a more natural look.
I have been using this foundation since high school (I'm in college now) and I still love it even though I tend to reach for my high end foundations more. I think it has the best shade range that I've seen in the drugstore. I like that it comes in cool, warm, and neutral shades because it's hard to find a foundation that is pale enough for me that also has a yellow undertone but W1 is perfect for me in the Winter! It has a medium coverage but it is buildable and really easy to blend.
i had two experiences with this product,with one being exceptional while the other being ridiculously horrible. just for reference, i have extremely dry skin to the point that my skin start shedding during winter or being in air conditioner for too long, and i am fair to medium Asian, warm skin undertone. ok, so i first used this foundation few year ago, it stayed in my friends' place without bringing any makeup stuff so i used hers, including this. i was so pleasantly surprised about how easily this blended and totally changed your skin appearance--well in a good way, smooth and more fluid-like more than cream-like which is just too heavy for me, i went to the store right after to get it and continuously used it for two months. then i shifted to other brands..about half year ago i got the other one from my friend, instead of warm, i got the cool one..and the shade was not even different, but it totally made my face look red literally!!! it is not that complementing healthy glow on a red face, it is a terrifying "what happen to her face" kinda red! so with that being said, even the shades were the same, watch out the undertone which does made the biggest difference. besides, the texture is yet a bit too thick, but i guess i will still purchase it again just because of the smoothness and the glow it give
I have had a 5 year relationship with this foundation, as it was the first type of makeup i ever put on my face, however, i decided to end it.
a big WARNING to oily skinned girls, DO NOT TRY THIS out!! your face will look like totally oily, from the t-zone to the cheeks. I have tried this on with loose powder and matifying powder, yet it still is no use. You have to blot your face out every 30 minutes..
-easy to blend, stays on all day, somewhat good coverage
-color turns dark on skin, makes skin oily, packaging is not good
I really love this foundation. Even if my skin is oily, if I use a good setting powder, I'm still looking my best by the end of the day. The coverage could be better, but if I use a good concealer, everything is alright.
The only downside, even tough the color range is wide, there is not a perfect match for me... I'm using W1, it's okay but not the best!
So overall, I think it's a good foundation for a drugstore brand.
