Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Hair: Blond, , Eyes: Blue

I am a light skin blue-eyed European girl, with sensitive skin which has pink undertone. The lady in the store really recommended it to me & pointed out it is rich in minerals & perfect for sensitive skin. I have been always the user of high-end foundations (Christian Dior, Shiseido, Clinique, Kanebo), but I decided to try it after such a good recommendation. I bought it sometime in April'11 & tried it right away on top of my Clinique liquid foundation, while I really liked the coverage, I noticed it was a little bit drying for my skin back in April & it turns somewhat orange after several minutes of application, so I left it unused for sometime. Then the summer heat started in June and all of my previously used high-end foundations started to melt on my face, my t-zone under the make-up started to look shiny & my high-end foundations gave me quite a bit of break-outs on my chin & forehead. And then, desperate to fix my oily t-zone, I started to use it again. All I can say it is GREAT for SUMMER!!!!! I am actually wearing my make-up to the Gym & L'Oreal True Match is PERFECT for HOT SUMMER MONTHS!!! It does not melt on my face, it absorbs all of the sweat while running etc., it looks great after 1.5 hrs of intense work-out in the Gym, I actually got compliments from guys on the street how great I look after 2 hrs of intense work-out with this foundation on. Unlike other brands, it DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT, actually the minerals in it DO HEAL my minor blemishes (they make them drier, and completely invisible), so even so in spring I was not impressed with this product at all, it DOES HELP a LOT in SUMMER months!!! The ONLY NEGATIVE is that it turns a bit ORANGE several minutes after application, it won't be too noticeable on darker skins I believe, but it is a bit noticeable on my still fair skin (but not too much). I think it is a pretty good every day foundation for casual events (shopping, gym, meeting friends etc.).. I treat myself for high-end brands for more important meetings, dates etc., but still think L'Oreal True Match could be great & won't smear during the night of dancing in the hot summer months.... Just make sure the color does not look too orange on your skin several minutes post-application ^^
