This is one of my favorite foundations of all time. I love the coverage, the consistency, everything. I'm in the shade N3/N4 depending on the amount of sun I've gotten. I have EXTREMELY oily skin, no matter which foundation I use, I get that dewy look within an hour of application, and that is when I set it with a powder. However, the thing that really stood out to me about this foundation was that IT STAYED ON MY FACE! Almost every other foundation I have tried has began slipping off my face within three hours of application, but this one stayed, even with me touching my face. I looked dewy, but the foundations stayed on.

Then one day, I was comfortable enough with this foundation, and brave enough to try wearing it without setting it with a powder.To my surprise, the result was basically the same. My makeup looked much more natural than it did with the powder. It left me with a demi-matte finish which was actually really nice. It sets pretty quickly and doesn't eave your skin feeling sticky at all. The best part is that any bronzer, contour, or blush that you put on over it blends out amazingly. It didn't make blending difficult or patchy, it didn't take any longer than normal.

Basically, this product is AMAZING. the only thing that would make it better, in my opinion, is if it came with a pump like the True Match Lumi. With that being said, the packaging isn't horrible. It isn't difficult to get product out because it doesn't have a super thick consistency like the Revlon Colorstay.

I would rate this as an above-average foundation but it is not HG foundation material for me. It is suitable for everyday use but the staying power is not that impressive. It covers nicely but others that need more heavy duty cover-up might want to invest in another foundation - I would describe this as medium coverage.
One of the things that I noticed when I applied this is that it has a powdery finish when you touch it. It blends in nicely, does not look cakey, and looks quite natural. Also, the colour range that is available is unprecedented in drugstore foundations.

Finally a foundation that matches me perfectly! I love that it's super blendable as the name states. Great everyday foundation with medium coverage. Staying power is not great, but you can't have it all.

I really like this foundation. It has an amazing color choice, and with my pale skin this was the only foundation that actually matched my skin perfectley (porcelain W1). The only thing i do not like about this foundation is that it it very runny and does not come with a pump, but other than that this foundation is amazing and cheap. 😊

This in my opinion this is an okay foundation, not great but not horrible. There is a large colour selection which is fantastic for a drugstore foundation but for me I find them to be almost at the extremes of each end the spectrum (ie. C1 is very pink whilst W1 is very yellow) for me I seem to fit somewhere between cool and neutral which makes finding a shade that 'perfectly' fits is just not possible.This foundation also oxidises on me which is very rare for me, particularly around the jawline and cheeks, which in turn, emphasises the many freckles that I use this foundation to conceal. The coverage is medium but buildable and generally lasts around 6-7 hours on me before needing some form of touching up. What I do like about this foundation, is that it is one of the few drugstore foundations that did not break me out even with my skin being VERY prone to clogged pores.

The colour selection is amazing! This foundation blends in amazingly with a good quality brush, and there is no trace of cakiness! I would say the coverage is medium with 1 layer and medium/heavy with 2 or 3 layers. The longetivity on my skin is about 6 hours, with is quite good considering I have oily/combination skin. There is basically every skin tone! It's really easy to choose your skin tone too, because the shades are named after skin undertones, which narrows down the selection. I have a warm skin undertone, and I am shade 3, so my shade is called W3. I haven't tried many high end foundations, maybe 2 or 3, but this is better than Estée Lauder or Clinique! I am definitely going to repurchase this product when it is empty!

This foundation has consistently got Favorite Drugstore Foundation awards, and it's easy to see why. It's one of those foundations that feels like you have no makeup on but still somehow manages to cover blemishes and imperfections. For the record, I have pale, dry, flaky skin, and the Porcelain shade is the only shade I have found from both drugstore and high-end brands that matches my ghostly complexion. Some reviewers said L'oreal true match was a bit drying, but to my relief, it didn't emphasize my flakes at all. It blends like butter, gives a skin-like matte finish, and more than adequately concealed my acne. I am very satisfied with this.

The packaging i have is different, so it may be different but it says loreal true math super blendable and spf 17, so ill write here. Im honestly inlove with this foundation, it really works well with my skin, i naturally have really oily skin and it covers it amazingly obviously with a little powder on top, it gives me a natural gorgeous look and its one of the best foundations i have purchased and its so inexpensive, i really think it depends on each person's skin type but i love this product!!

I picked this up a couple of years ago after hearing lots about it and to be honest I didn't love it at first. But, I played around with it more and used different ways to apply it - I think I used to apply it with my fingers when I first got it. Probably why I didn't like it as much. Fast forward to now and this is still in my makeup collection and it's my GO-TO foundation. If I'm wearing makeup, 9 times out of 10, I'll be wearing this beauty.

If you have dry skin I would suggest moisturising well before using this as it does set to a semi-matte finish. Which I love. I have combination/oily skin - some days it's oily than others, but this foundation lasts all day on me. If I am needing a touch up then I'll usually just powder my T-zone once then i'm sorted for the rest of the day.

My favourite way to apply this foundation is with either the Real Techniques Buffing Brush (I usually use this) or the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge (don't forget to wet your sponge first!).
Having said that, I definitely prefer using my brush because this foundation is VERY thin - literally like water- so I find the sponge soaks it up abit and I have to use about half a pump more than I normally would.

My skin is by no means perfect (I uploaded 2 pics) but this foundation gives me such a gorgeous coverage - it's so buildable and IMO doesn't get cakey - it makes my skin look flawless. I would say this is a medium to builable coverage.

Obviously, we girls (and boys) all have different skin, so I can't speak for you, but this foundation is my holy grail and I would recommend it to anybody. I have repurchased this time and time again, and won't be stopping soon. If you've got the same/similar skin type as me then 100% give it a go - afterall it isn't a super expensive foundation, so it wouldn't be as heartbreaking as not liking a Nars or MAC foundation, for example.

Have fun with makeup and just experiment :)

I have to say, I was really surprised by this foundation. I never have any luck with drugstore foundations, besides neutrogena healthy skin, but the color is slightly off with that one, other then that it's a beautiful foundation. Now onto the loreal one, dare I say I like it even more then my HG nars sheer glow?? Yes I do dare! Lol the finish is natural, skin like, and just overall healthy looking. I do not have any issues with this such as, sliding or going patchy. The color is better then neutrogena, I'm a yellow gal, lol. I believe I have this in W4 and I would say it's a good match for nars sheer glow "Punjab" (less peachy) or mac NC25 borderline NC 30, a happy middle ground in the Mac. I happen to range anywhere from NC 20- 35 depending on the season, if that helps anyone, and I do wear studio fix fluid when I need a hardcore, stay all day and night foundation and I'm NC30 right now and W4 is just about right. Enough of the ramble, overall this is a good foundation and I will continue to purchase it. I think I'll try W4.5 and W5 next, as I get darker in the summer. Good color range.
