I bought this foundaton after hearing Lauren Curtis go on and on about how amazing it is. After buying it and trying it out for a few weeks, I've decided that I love it but I don't know why. The lasting power is great and so is the colour range. The have warm and cool toned shades as well as neutral shades, which is great for me as my skin is neutral. I have the shade N5 'Sand/Sable' which matches my skin perfectly.
It dries down to quite a matte finish but it doesn't look dry or cakey. It almost looks like a natural, 'my skin but better' finish. I think I paid something like $35 for it here in Australia which isn't too bad for a foundation. I know I haven't done a great job at talking this up but it really is a great foundation, probably my favourite.
I don't understand the hype about this foundation. I have skin that is on the lighter side of the olive spectrum and none of the colours match! The one I bought is too dark and the one below too light!. Secondly I don't think it actually blends all that well. However it does provide good coverage and it did last throughout the day for me.
Does anyone else noticed, that L'Oreal foundations are too watery??
For the price, quality and quantity, that's definite NO in my beauty bag.
This is my absolute holy grail foundation. It is easy to apply, blends well, has buildable coverage and looks pretty natural. I wish it was easier to get hold of my exact shade though - I am N1 and all stores seem to think that only carrying the pinker C1 is enough. It's great to have finally found a foundation that doesn't cost too much and is pale enough and not too pink for my neutral toned skin. I have sensitive/dehydrated/combination skin and it doesn't make me break out or settle into the drier parts of my face. It's not the most long-lasting foundation but it gets me through a work day just fine without losing too much, as long as I use setting powder.
I have dry skin so I can really only wear this if I slather on loads of moisturiser and apply it directly after. It has a thin consistency but gives a medium coverage and does not oxidise. However it does crease around my mouth when I smile and I can only wear it for a few hours before it makes my skin go very prunelike. At times I've looked in the mirror and seen it crack in places , how embarrassing . This also has spf in it and it does flashback in pictures. The lid also tends to fall off which is a pain and a mess.
This is just an okay foundation. It's not great for oily skin and doesn't last all day. Like I said, just average.
I remember using this in high school, this has been around for as long as I can remember. I like the true match pressed powder, so I decided to try this again after a few years and see how I like it. At first it looked great, but as an hour passed I had so much oil on my face! Not only that but it settled in my pores like you wouldn't imagine. I returned it immediately because I wanted my money back.
I used to wear drugstore foundations all the time...Maybelline, L'Oreal, Rimmel etc etc until I started using Estee Lauder Double Wear (and experimenting with other high end foundations). Anyway, I ran out of the DW, happened to be in a Superdrug and ended up buying L'Oreal True Match. I really wanted to like this. L'Oreal foundations used to look great on my skin. But this was just a no no for me. Colour wise, it was perfect since I always use about the lightest one, but it made my face an oily mess. I already have oily skin, and within 30 minutes of applying this (and using primer and powder):
My face was extra oily
I have dry patches in certain areas on my face (around the nose and mouth) and this really made those patches stand out
It made my pores seem bigger (even though they're not that big to begin with)
And the coverage was so so. I have slight redness around my nose and mouth and have a few blemishes that need a lot more coverage.
For what it did, I can't really say the price was worth it.
Using DW, I can usually go about 5 hrs before a touch up, with TM, I just wanted to wash my face straight away.
I tried giving this to my mother but she didn't like it either (she has dry skin) and I'm not really sure what to do with it.
I would say, try to get a sample of this before buying. For some people, its HG material, for others...not so much.
This foundation is gorgeous, I purchase mine from priceline. It looks like skin while covering up redness and evening out skin time. I have a fair bit of acne and redness on my face so ours easy for foundation to look 'obvious' but this makes my skin look even and fresh! The packaging is great! Pros: packaging, quality, just a great drugstore foundation, a little goes a long way
I have been using Loreal True Match Foundation in Beige N4. As I have lost a lot of my tan I bought N3 yesterday which is a step lighter. I have been wearing Revlon Colourstay Foundation for years and I am completely in love with it but, I wanted something that wasn't so matte. As it's coming into summer I feel as though I want a little more shimmer to the skin.
Loreal True Match offers this added shimmer & even more. Its blendable, silky and sets beautifully. It would not be recommended for oily skin!
Overall a brilliant foundation but, I will be returning to my beloved Revlon Colourstay as soon as the two bottles are finished. Not because I don't like True Match but, because Revlon Colourstay is just my holy grail product and I find it to be the ultimate drugstore foundation.
