I beg to disagree that the roller applicator doesn't work coz it does! I roll it simultaneously in vertical and horizontal motions to blend and I have to say that I prefer this than regular sponge. It picks up even amount from the pan & translates to the skin the same way. The product itself is not hard to blend neither. I finish my face a whole lot faster than using regular sponge. And what I like the most is the massaging effect of the roller on my face. I wish there are roller sponges like this sold in the market coz I find it very easy to use for cream foundation. Coverage is good and it's not too bad for my oily skin but I still prefer if it's a little bit more matte, so I knocked a lippie off. Overall, I like this product and it's good to understand why L'oreal came up with the roller, it simply works! Just think that paint rollers we use for walls ends up with even color & does the job faster than paint brushes....it's the same concept!

So I guess I should come right out and say it, the roller concept is a completely pointless gimmick and really doesn't do much except cake on too much makeup and create the silliest looking streaks on me... That said, the formula itself for this product isn't too bad, and actually does a pretty good job of staying put on my oily skin throughout the day.
The formula is lightweight yet still gives decent and buildable coverage that really doesn't budge, especially when paired with a matching powder. A clerk at my local ULTA recommended this product to me (not sure what she was thinking) but I will continue to use this as an everyday go-to product, (of course with a brush instead of that silly little paint roller.) till I finally run out.

I BOUGHT THIS FOR $3.72
IT IS ON SALE AT RITE AID RIGHT NOW!!!
ok i just bought this because i wanted to test it out and it was 75% off ($3.72 in total)
the roller is alright for cheeks and the forehead, but not around the eyes or nose or mouth, so i appy it with a sponge or fingers. i blend it out with either a brush or fingers.
its a little oily, but i have sort of dry skin it has spf 25 which i enjoy.
i would say this has a medium to full coverage.
overall, i probably won't be repurchasing because of the price, but if it was on sale again, i would repurchase.

This is decent. It looks fantastic when I first apply it. I am pretty acne prone and I haven't seen a single pimple or clogged pore from this. That's a lot to be said about a creme foundation (most clog me horribly and I end up with cystic acne). I apply this before work around 2pm and I don't get home till midnight. By the time I get home this looks like it's gone. I even tried setting it with silica powder but nope. It's just gone. Yet when I go to remove my make-up color still shows up on the make-up towelette. So there is some left... it just doesn't look like it though. I look like a hot mess. If this could stay looking nice all day, like it does after initial application, then I'd say this is HG. Also I was sweating a lot at work and it'd come off. There was a youtube review about it saying it was waterproof and I wouldn't deem this as waterproof.

Okay so i bought this a few years ago and really liked the application and color on me... i don't know how but i bought the same exact one and... THE COLOR CHANGED!!! OH NO!!! last year i was much more busy so the roller was a quick foundation routine for me on the days where i had limited time, which i loved. I recommend getting a shade darker than your skin tone because mine is just way too light... true match...not so much. So i powder over this even though it has a matte finish... not a big fan... it looks a little fake. I think maybe if i have more time with this i can make it work once again but until then i'm just using it as a concealer. The texture is kinda thick and you definitely need to blend after applying this with the roller. I wish there was a mirror in the compact, but i like everything else about the packaging. it has a nice sleek little case. i've used better cream foundations before. (This one feels a little dry too... put moisturizer on if you have dry skin)

For drugstore foundation, this was expensive! I thought, if I buy this, it better be the best foundation I've ever used. And I was disappointed. First off with the whole roller thing it's super easy to become streaky-- it takes some blending. The color matched pretty okay, I guess. Not very good coverage. After a while it will become oily and splotchy. HUGE disappointment.

The coverage goes on really nice on my skin. I don't use the roller it comes with, instead I use it with a small MAC foundation brush, This is great for quick fixes, coverage is great.

I actually enjoy this product. I use C4. I have to say there are a couple of pros and cons. Pros- it does match your skin tone at least for me it did. Con- you just can't wear it alone you have to use powder or another type of foundation for it to look flawless and clean. Over all I would buy it. Tip- only roll it a couple of times on the makeup you do it a lot of times or too harsh it will be to much on your skin.

I got this product on sale for $3 at Walgreen's, and the price was originally around $12, so I snagged it for a pretty good price. However, this foundation had clear pros and cons. One pro was the match of the shade (they didn't lie when they said "true match") and another pro was the relatively decent coverage. However, a big con to me was the oily feeling it left on my skin. I anticipated a creamy, light consistency, but was left with a less than desirable greasy face. Also, I thought that the application would be super easy because of the roller, but it was actually a bit time consuming and difficult. Overall, I was not too impressed.

It blends well and look nice....only once you put it on. It doesn't look nice once you are out the door. I would only wear it if I needed to run to the store for 5 minutes.

I use this in combination with the liquid version in order to get full coverage; I need very thick coverage in certain areas; whereas the liquid is a bit sheer, this is full. It does leave marks on the edges where the roller has been but you can blend them. I loved the thick coverage that didn't feel cakey or heavy on my face, I hate feeling like I'm 'wearing something' and the true match line is very light comparatively. I looked airbrushed! It can be a tad tricky maneuvering it on your nose and other curves of the face, but it's best to not expect perfect application with the roller, and be prepared to use it in combination with the liquid and blend them together. It's not a perfect foundation, but until I find something better (w1 is just a smidge too dark on me) it'll be what I use.
UPDATE: Had to knock off a lipstick - W1 is now *definitely* too dark for me, and I've also discovered that my skin much prefers powder foundation, so I no longer use the True Match line. If it came in lighter colors, I probably would, but no dice. Such is the life of a pale girl.

Roller is awful, coverage is atrocious, everything about this sucks. Except the packaging. It looks cool.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Wavy Eyes: Blue
this is my HG foundation! its the only one i have found that dosent break me out, dry out my skin or slide off, plus it has SPF 17! i roll it twice in the pot and roll once on the area i want to cover for a sheer coverage and set with powder, i love this product!

I bought this on sale. I knew that the lightest of the cool shades was perfect for me in the liquid formula, and I was pleased to find that this was true of the creme as well. The applicator that was included was simply awful - it layered on the foundation way too heavy, can't get into the smaller parts of my face, and is almost impossible to clean. I tried the roller once and that was it! Applied with a dense kabuki, this foundation was much better. It can't last a day on my oily skin, but with a mattifying primer underneath, mixing the creme with a longer-lasting matte liquid foundation that is slightly too dark for me, and setting with Rimmel's Stay Matte powder, this is now part of my favourite foundation routine. I love its heavy coverage that isn't thick! A bit of experimentation was all that was needed to make this work for me. Big con is the price though - at almost $20, I wouldn't buy this again unless it was on sale :(

This product is not on the cheap side without a sale but i am fairly happy with the product to even out my skin tone occasionally. It works on my dry skin.

I was completely disappointed. I had one of the worst makeup days ever when I used this stuff. It completely disappeared after 10 minutes. It made my face look so oily and gross. Never again will I but this stuff. I bought it at Target and it was $13!!! I thought that was way too steep for a foundation that did nothing but make my skin look oily and blotchy. Target usually doesn't refund cosmetics that have been opened but I was lucky to get an employee who understood my complaint. I was refunded the full amount that I paid

Well what can I say about this foundation. It was truly a dissapointment. The roller idea was quiet original in my opinion, but you couldn't get into any fine corners like the sides of you nose etc. Also using the roller isnt very hygenic after a while either. Besides that the product isnt very long lasting and gets cakey after an hour. The coverage on this product was ok however. Anyways I sure wont buy this product again.

This product is super gross!! will not repurchase!

the shade w5-6 was a good match for my yellow undertone.good coverage. very difficult to remove even after cleansing twice with my pevonia phyto-gel and then once with the exfoiliating clarigel, there was still residue on my cotton pad when toning.

Gimmick. Really, a roller? I passed with the roller and went straight to the wedge sponge. It applied a bit harder than I'd expected for a creme. The packaging is also tacky and cheaply made, careful not to drop it. I used to use max factors version years ago, which was heaven sent, no longer available in the U.S. though:( I have w3 which looked like a really good match for my nc30 summer tan. On me it looked way too light and ghost like. In flash pictures I looked ridiculous. Would match nc20 skintone, lol. Good coverage and smoothed evenly but I'll pass for the price of one of these, so not worth it.
