This is probably my favorite drugstore foundation of all time. It's super easy to blend, the color range is AMAZING, and it's a good price! I have two different shades; one for winter and one for summer. I like to mix the two for when I need to be a bit darker/paler.
It has pretty decent coverage which can definitely be built up. The packaging is terrible. It's super easy to spill this and get it everywhere haha. Definitely need to be careful if you're pouring this!
Love love love it!
This deserves a 4.0+ overall rating! This by far is the best foundation I've used! This is such a dupe to Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. WHY I THINK THIS IS THE BEST? It's the perfect consistency (not too runny nor thick) It covers and stays flawlessly and well better than many high-end foundations, it looks very NATURAL and just sinks yet covers and LIGHTWEIGHT. It's better than MUFE HD foundation for oily skinned. This is the most lasting on the skin for those extremely oily like me. I see no cons but it CAN transfer but not easily.
This is a great foundation for so many reasons. It's super blendable, you really don't need alot of product. It comes in so many shades there is absolutely NO WAY that you cannot find your shade. L'oreal has also done a great job categorizing these foundations based on undertones which really compliments everyone if you choose the right shade/undertone. I always get compliments when I wear this because my skin looks flawless and it looks like "skin." It's a great light-medium buildable coverage and is a really good everyday foundation. The price is average for a drugstore foundation and it can withstand mild heat/humidity. I do find that it transfers which is the only thing I dislike but I will continue to use it. I have oily skin and this isn't meant for us oily skin gals, but I find when I set it with a shine-control or matte powder it stays matte for quite awhile. This foundation makes your skin look amazing. I can't say enough good things about this. Would recommend this.
I love the coverage this foundation gives. I get complimented all the time when I wear this. It's very easy to blend but this is where it becomes a blessing and a curse. I find that you have to work fast with this foundation because it sets quickly. There were times I go to apply my blush and I noticed that there was a patchy blotch on my face from the foundation. It oxidizes so it can make you look strange if you don't blend well enough. Despite this, I will repurchase only because I love the finish so much. Now I have the beauty blender, hopefully the patchiness won't be a problem. I also plan on purchasing the lumi foundation and mixing the two together to get an even better finish
i tried this out a few years back and hated it, there was no coverage and the formula was terrible so i tried it out again at the beginning of this year and the new formula has been my favorite foundation ever since!
ive been through 3 of these in the past 6 months, i LOVE LOVE LOVE this new formula! its a buildable medium-full coverage, you dont need much concealer afterward. try it out!
I have normal to combination skin and I typically use high end foundation. After hearing so many good things about this foundation I gave it a try after I ran out of my regular foundation. Huge mistake! I had changed my diet recently so I blamed my diet on my bad skin but after 2 months I realized it was my makeup breaking me out. I have never ever had bad skin and since using this foundation, I've had very painful/deep pimples and lots of tiny bumps all over my face (mostly on my chin). They're so red and irritated I will avoid going in public. I have since switched back to my Tarte foundation in hopes of getting my skin back to normal. The color match is great but once my skin turns bright red it stops matching...
I was looking for a natural looking foundation for school. I came across this during a sale at Ulta and decided to purchase it. Overall, it's a pretty good foundation for a beginner like me. The coverage was medium and it is very buildable if you take your time and let it dry before putting on more layers. This foundation has a very semi-matte finish and it's great for oily skinned people like me :) I live in FL, so it's disgustingly humid here all of the time. This foundation surprisingly held up really well after a long day at school. It does transfer, which sucks, but if i use a setting spray, I find that it doesn't transfer as much. The color selection is incredible, but it took me a while to find my shade. I gave it a 4 just because the packaging is kind of annoying, and it has little sparkles in it. They aren't too noticeable, but it still bothers me. I highly recommend this foundation to people who are looking for a natural and light foundation.
I bought this make-up because I was so frustrated with not being able to find my shade. I tried several shades and finally I found my shade and I was super happy. But I was very disappointed with the actual make-up. It didn't stay on my face and didn't cover much. It never broke me out either.
I purchased the colour N6 Honey - Currently sporting a bit of a tan and after checking out all the colours, this one seemed best for my current tone.
Being the eager beaver that I am, as soon as I got home from my Boots, I was straight to the dressing table ready to try out the L'Oreal True Match.
I used my fingers to apply. When I put it on my hand I instantly thought - no way. It's not going to work out for me because it seemed so runny. Compared to my usual Estee Lauder Double Wear (which is great for acne prone skin like mine), it just felt so light and like it wouldn't cover a single thing!
Anyways... On it went to the face and I started blending. It felt very smooth and light but... erm... the coverage was AMAZING! I didn't even have to use the full amount of 2 pumps worth that I greedily put on my hand!
I went on to use a little bit of my Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer but even then, I really didn't need much because the foundation had done most of the work already! Plus my concealer blended very well which was another bonus.
So did it last I hear you say? Yep - I would say I get a good 10 hours out of this foundation without needing to touch it up. In the hot weather my skin does tend to start shining no matter what I use but to be honest it ended up just looking like a nice duey coverage. A little translucent powder though and the shine was gone.
I can happily say I have found another foundation to use and no doubt in the winter I will be off to find a lighter shade should my tan disappear (ahhh I don't want my tan to go!!).
Considering the price of this foundation at just £9.99 and the amount you get, as well as it being a great product, I would suggest to anyone to give it a go. Especially as there are so many colours to choose from.
The one thing left to say on this product is that I am currently 3.5 days into using it consecutively. Some products can of course aggravate acne... so far so good but I think I need to use it for a full week before I can determine that for sure. Fingers crossed it doesn't make anything worse!
Hope this helps anyone who is thinking of trying it! x
I am surprised that I like this foundation because I always assumed high end was better. This is one of the better foundations that I have tried, and I've tried many. I have combination skin, leaning on the oily side. In MAC foundation, I'm an NC20-25. The first great thing about this foundation is the color range. I found a really close match in w3. I considered n3, which might also be a good match. As for the formula, I find it to be medium coverage. It is somewhat matte, but not too matte that it looks unnatural. It has a slight shimmer that makes my skin look healthy, but not too much that I can see it except in bright sunlight. I thought I would never wear foundation with shimmer, so don't let that part scare you off. It lasts well even in this crazy hot and humid weather we've been having. I think it looks best when applied with a flat foundation brush. I would recommend you try this, except if your skin is really oily. The price is great. It is in a glass bottle with no pump so the packaging could be better, but I'll take it because I like the foundation a lot. It also has broad spectrum sunscreen, SPF 17.
