Loreal foundations are either lighter or darker than my skin tone, I don't have an exact match. I don't like this powder formula because it makes my skin oilier and it feels thick and heavy. Right after application, my skin feels sticky, I dunno why. The liquid formula doesn't have that same effect.
Broke me out!!!!! terribly and in less than 2 hours... it may have been an allergy.
Sucks so bad because It was very good.
I have yellow undertones which makes it a challenge with powders. Sometimes a ashy appearance. In Mac I am between NC44-NC45. True match powder I have w7and w6. I primarily use w7. I can use them as foundation when my skin is clear but when I have acne flares its just setting powder. I have better results with a puff opposed to the sponge in the case. I wish it had more coverage. But I like it.
I dunno, it LOOKS nice, but it feels pretty bad on my skin. Very powdery. Also, the sponge included is not very good, and you're better off using a brush. Go with Dream Matte
Got it in the colour W8 (Creme Cafe). This one i bought a loong time ago. It was the first powder i ever tried and i was so damn disappointed with it. It pulls too red for my yellow-based skintone. The shade ranges are divided into cool, neutral and warm, with warm being slightly yellower. Unfortunately, it isnt yellow enough for my indian skintone. For reference, I wear Bobbi Brown stick foundation in Warm Honey, and in MAC i'd probably be an NC44, with NC45 being too orange.
The texture and all is quite nice, but the shade range was a let-down. Also, it oxidises redder, so you might wanna choose a lighter shade if you're gona get this.
-Good, convenient packaging.
-Comes with mirror.
-Good for on the go, not very particular person.
-Not very blendable.
-Hard to match.
-Holds about 6 hours.
*Might not buy again.
It has medium-full coverage and is thick enough to use without foundation. Gives a smooth flawless finish but I wouldn't buy this again because i already use liquid foundation so I don't need that extra coverage. And another reason, it oxidizes too much and turns my skin orange. I'm not sure if it matters, but I got this in W4 Natural Beige. Maybe it only oxidizes with the warm shades? Not buying again even if it was on sale.
However, I do love their true match liquid foundation, just not the powder.
-Doesn't itch (if you have odd skin like I)
-Hides redness very well
-Comes in a nice compact
-Does actually match your skin tone
-Depending on the shade and the "undertone" (which colors look best on you, i.e warm colors or cool colors), in which there's either yellow (warm) or blue (cool) dots, the brand makes it easy to find the right concealer, foundation, etc, that matches it.
-Is bendable with other products.
-Slight powdery feel (you can feel it)
-You may need to touch up
-Don't use the sponge applicator they have inside; better to get a powder brush to apply it
-Doesn't cover acne all that well
This is a great compact to keep in your purse. The packaging looks cheap but it does come with a mirror and it has no fragrance. This powder works good for touch ups or used alone for lighter coverage. They last a long time and are a good value for the price.
- Can cover up redness
- Looks natural
- Comes with a convenient mirror and applicator.
- After about 5 hours, it started to feel a bit oily.
A very nice powder, I would get it again.
