i love this powder, it matches my skin complection to a T,greate coverage,last most of the day BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i noticed ever since i started useing this powder my face seems to be breaking out a lot that is the only fault that i caN FIND WITH THIS PRODUCT
Okay so, I do like this product- but it turns my skin ORANGE. I looked like Snooki (and I love Snooki, so I didn't personally care, but I just couldn't go to school orange), and I read a review before... and they too said that it turned their skin orange, I don't know if it was just our certain two or what...? I got I believe W2, one shaded lighter than my foundation (I also use True Match foundation, W3 and it works fine, I will continue to use that) but I have NO clue why this is turning my skin orange... it upsets me. I liked it though, it went on nicely, STAYS on. For the first like two minutes after you put it on, you look great... until it turns your skin orange. Maybe its just mine, has this happened to anyone else? This is perfect for halloween.
Nice range of colors, good coverage, and it blends well. The price is a little high for a drug store product, but I stock up when it goes on sale.
I really love this powder its blendable and has good coverage, which a very nice matte finish. It lasts a pretty long time. The packaging , although it's not much to look at, it does it's job, its secure and isn't cheap. I really like it and would recommend it to everyone.
I've been using this powder for years and I absolutely love it! It's incredibly easy to blend and comes with a handy sponge that you can use for midday touchups. Absolutely fantastic...will definitely keep using ^^
L'Oreal True Match is my best kept secret, on a budget, but still want to look matte and pretty - powder. I love that the W3 shade matches me perfectly (even when I'm tan, strangely enough.) My skin tone is halfway between rosey and olive while still being a bit ashen (strange again, I know!) This powder matches better than any other I've tried. I am including dept. store brands when I say that.
I don't wear foundation at all so my powder has to cover blemishes, absorb oil and even me out, all while being translucent - L'Oreal does it and does it well.
It might take buying the two shades closest to yours on the spectrum, taking them home and giving them a go to see which works best. Hey, that's still less expensive than buying Estee Lauder. And when you find your shade - you will be a convert!
This product, is one that i've stuck to. Its not a miracle worker whats so ever and i dont rave about it. why? its just a powder. i do repurchase when i run out but i still think about trying other brands. it sets my makeup fine and leaves a matt finish without messing with the color of my makeup and is compact and can be taken everywhere. it is cheap and from the drugstore and comes in a great shade of colors, i have thrown it on alone just to quickly even out my skin tone and thats about all it does, no coverage really by itself. but its great at just setting your liquid makeup. it works, its cheap, it doesnt mess with your skin. a product you'd be happy to find and use but not be amazed by. the mirror is convienent on the go for those who have to blot ( i dont personally with my dry skin) and i guess the sponge is convienent for blotters too. but for me it just adds bulk to this product, know that this doesnt contain a lot of makeup and its easy to hit pan on. one huge plus about this product is the undertone range. they have both yellow, pink and nutral undertones which is hard to find in the drugstore :) thumbs up for not looking like a oompa loompa.
None of the True Match shades match my skin, they are all way too orange. The powder was horribly orange and I couldn't even wear it the day I applied it--had to take it off as soon as I got home. I find this type of makeup really hard to blend too--sometimes if I get a bad shade in DS, I can dilute it or at least blend it until it semi-disappears, but the True Match versions are hard to do that with. I have better luck with Infalliable and I can't wait to try Visible Lift this winter once my Infalliable runs out!
I first got the compact and that was a total waste but after reading reviews of this on here I went back and bought the powder.
So far I am liking it. I just used the foam puff that came with the powderto apply it and with the the coverage is pretty good I would call it a heavy meadium. I am NC30 and W4 matches my skin pretty good. it covered all the redness, hs not settled into any lines and has kept me decently matte even after 3 hrs.
I was looking for something that will cover decently well and is quick to apply when I go out for dinner or a special occassion and I think this does the job.
I'm not a connoisseur of foundation but this is the best I've tried so far! I've probably tried 20 or more foundation over the years, all d/s. I do think it makes me a little old sometimes but I know I'm putting way too much on because I'm obsessed with matte skin. I may try Maybelline because it has higher reviews, but I doubt it's better. I've used this foundation for a couple years and I'm kind of afraid to leave it. Their fairest color in cool matches me perfectly. It also almost always evens my skin perfectly but I rarely break out. It does not cover the dark circles under my eyes, but it does help them some. I have noticed that it seems to make my face hurt sometimes, but that may just be because I hardly ever moisturize.
