I have combination skin. Oily T-zone and the rest of my face tends to be dry. I usually just use moisturizer and a translucent mineral powder, and some blotting sheets to control my oiliness. However, I decided to try foundation again since I haven't used it in years. I bought this one since I was in a rush and it is a perfect match for my skin (sand beige w5).
I still use moisturizer in my dry areas before applying this, but this foundation is so greasy! Even after using 3 oilblotting papers my skin still looks shiny and gross. I also don't like that the foundation is shimmery. The only place it does cake up - under my eyes, which I moisturize religiously.
I'm going to use the rest of the bottle, but never again will I buy this!
I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!! IT IS ONE OF THE BEST FOUNDATIONS IVE TRIED!!!! It makes me skin really super soft and gives it a nautural look..im the color ivory and it makes my skin look fantastic!!! i will buy this again!
It definitely matches your skin texture and color well, but that's not what you want from a foundation! You want something that looks like flawless skin, not something that will match your imperfections too and make it look like you're not wearing anything. Not a good look. I normally finish them anyway, but I couldn't with this one, I had to give it away
This foundation was one of the best foundations i had ever tried! unfortunately they discontinued my shade (N7) which is why i've given it 3 lippys :( .i can't repurchase in any other shade as they are either too light or too pink for my skin..it was the first foundation i had ever tried and turned alot of heads whenever i wore it! i've been on a quest ever since to find a foundation similar to this and the closest one so far has got to be nars (sheer glow) bt still not as good as this! please l'oreal bring back my shade!!!!!
I like the color selection and how they break it down into cool, neutral, and warm. I also like how they have corresponding blushes and concealers. The formula blends well and covers moderately. I find it lasts more of the day. The cons are: the bottle makes it difficult at times to get the foundation out, and I tend to get pretty oily with it by the end of the day, although that's not entirely the foundation's fault. I've recently switched to powder foundations, but if I ever switch back to liquid, I would consider repurchasing this.
I have been using this since 2004 and it is my go to foundation!
Perfect coverage and texture! It also gives a lovely matte finish to my skin. It stays put all day and it does not feel like I'm wearing foundation.
Also I have never experienced any breakouts or spots and I have very sensitive skin and used to have severe eczema. The glass bottle is fab and has never broken from being dropped/packed in suitcase etc!
Cannot say enough good things about this foundation!
A little goes a long way and one bottle lasts be agesssssssss! Amazing value for money!
I tried and tried to like this product. It just didn't work for me. The colors were always off (yes there are so many but I have pale olive skin) and it caked. It was always so awful obvious that I was wearing foundation with this. I can understand why others might like this but for me it just doesn't work.
It was my first foundation ever (both liquid and compact, I have combination skin and some parts need to be powdered) and at first it did its job well... until I started looking like an oompa-loompa. Even with new foundations. I switched to other foundations since then!
I have finally found a foundation that I will use for awhile! The color selection is awesome, you can tell by the color in the bottle if it's going to have pink or yellow undertones.. thank goodness! I found the perfect match for my skin. You only need the smallest amount to get medium-full coverage. Unfortunately the bottle will force you to pour out a boatload if you're not careful. I apply small dots all over my face, smooth it out with my fingers and buff with a flat-top kabuki.. it looks flawless and covers the redness on my cheeks! The lasting power is mediocre, but a few touch ups with the True Match powder you're good to go!
