I really dislike this foundation. It makes my skin look greasy, it doesn't stay put and it doesn't provide good coverage. I definitely won't be buying this again. The concealer and powder from the same line are good, so I expected to like this, but it's the worst drugstore foundation I've tried in a long time.

Absolutely loved the color range (easy to find the perfect shade with pink or yellow undertones) but it was too dry for my skin.
Blends effortlessly and seamlessly. Wish it was a little more moisturizing. Does not have all-day staying power. Medium coverage that is buildable.

This foundation looked amazing on my twenty year old near flawless skin. Now, I have larger pores and uneven texture and it's ok but I just see age in my face more with this. If I do honey masked for my pores and have a good skin day then it looks nice. However I get little tiny bumps on my face after using it, then I have to purge my pores all over again. I personally feel that if you have nice skin and no skin sensitivities go for it. If your like me and used to love Truematch but it doesn't love you anymore, try for a dewy glow look- Jane Iredales BB cream or Nars sheer glow, laura mercer supreme, Giorgio Armani luminous silk is also nice but has silicones. Or for a matte finish Estée Lauder doublewear (great new colors for warm tones although I get those bumps again) or the beautiful Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk, These foundations in my opinion are more "grown up" and investing into a solid foundation is investing in your confident and polished self. They also have amazing colors for my nc 20-30/ w2-w4 skin tone. Good luck on you HG foundation hunt.

I'm pretty impressed to say the least with this foundation. My color is C2, and while I do have neutral undertones I don't find that this enhances redness at all. In fact, I think this foundation evens my skintone beautifully. I tried this foundation years ago, but in W1, and hated it! I found that it was way to orange. Anyway, this foundation is super blendable and is of medium coverage. I was told the other day that I looked better than I had in a long time, and believe me that is saying a lot! I'm 12 weeks into my pregnancy and have been battling all day "morning-sickness" so this foundation definitely brightened my face. I also want to point out that I do have normal-dry skin and this foundation does not "stick" to dry spots. I do wear a moisturizer underneath which is a must for any foundation I wear.

This is one of the best drugstore foundations I've tried! First, I love how they have a wide range of shades so that anyone can find their perfect match. It's so hard for me to find a foundation that has warm undertones at the drugstore! Like the product's name, I found that it blended beautifully into my skin and made it look very natural. It has medium to full coverage without making me feel like I've caked on makeup. The packaging is also very simple and nice too The ONLY complaint I have about this is that it doesn't seem to control my oil all that great in the warmer seasons. For reference, I have really oily skin :( However, it was perfect during the Fall and Winter but once Summer came around, this foundation just didn't do.

I will start with positives, sooo:
The package is very nice, bottle with pump, very hygienic and everything is ok with it.
It has no fragrance which is really perfect.
I bought it just because it was supercheap in the drugstore.
The range of shade is really wide, but it oxidizes. I bought a shade rose-vanille (as I remember) and it looked really good when I was trying it in the shop. I came home and I put it on my skin and I was really surprised how it looked. But after maybe one hour i had like very unhealthy colour. It is really hard to describe.
It doesnt irritate the sensitive skin, but it is drying. Maybe because of all the powders and pigments in the foundation.
The final effect was terrible. It felt heavy on the skin and it looked like I am wearing plenty of foundation and some heavy powder. It would maybe look good on a Halloween party. My skin looked cakey and the foundation was making every little wrinkle on my face more and more visible. I think there are many many many better foundations for the same or maybe even lower prices, if you want to save some money and buy some very good stuff.
I was a bit disappointed because I expected something better. Maybe because of the name True Match. But it wasnt matching at all. :)

This is one of the best drugstore foundations ive ever tried, I know by the reviews on here that some people hate it but for me and for what I use it for its perfect. Im an NC 30 in MAC an I found that the shade W4 is a perfect match in fact it matches me better than my MAC Studio Fix Fluid which has always been a bit off to me. This foundation is medium to buildable coverage-satin/matte finish. When you apply it you will never struggle to blend it out like other foundations (Colorstay) in fact True Match is so fool proof you can use your hands and still get a flawless airbrushed finsh. After you apply and let it set it has a pretty natural finish ,to get a true matte finish use Maybelline Dream Matte Powder which is amazing with this foundation. Now L'Oreal claims that this foundation is for all skin types and that is for the most part true with a few exceptions. If you have Dry to Normal skin this foundation will be perfect it's not heavy and you can customize the coverage just make sure you moisturize very well if your skin is very dry as it tends to cling to dry patches but this problem can be fixed with moisturizer. Now for my Combo/Oily/Very Oily people this is where it might work for you or it might be a disaster. As I said before the finish is Satin/Matte and for dry/normal skin it will stay that way, even more with powder but for us oily people that finish lasts about 3hrs, maybe less in the summer. You will have to retouch a few times because this foundation dosent control oil but it never claimed that. The way I keep the oil at bay is with my Milk of Magnesia it keeps the foundation looking flawless for hours and hours and it keeps the oilies away. I highly recommend that combination to anyone who needs oil control with any foundation. I use this foundation for everyday wear and with the M.O.M it works great and lasts for a full 8hrs. You are guaranteed to find a shade that matches you they have like 30 shades that's awesome for drugstore. Overall im in love with my True Match and I highly recommend it.
(Extra Tip: If you have oily skin and dont want to use Milk Of Magnesia you can use a primer Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro 002 goes great with this foundation.)

Favorite drug store foundation. I use this in w4 or 5 depending on what I have available. It lasts all day coverage is amazing! Has nice yellow tones that really match me perfectly. It doesn't oxidize on my skin which is normal dry. I don't set it at all with powder except my nose. I moisturize prime with loreal true match lumi primer apply with a dampened beauty blender sponge. And conceal with the corresponding concealer. It gives a natural Finish that isn't too matte or dewy its like that fresh face look we all love ! Give it a try for only 7.99 at Walmart you can't go wrong at all! Shade matching is easy for the most part they have a color chart you can search but for the back of your wrist which I feel makes you pick a lighter color. If u can open it swatch and and see if it matches. But you need to know your undertone (warm cool or neutral)

I LOVE this foundation. This is my favorite foundation of all time. It's super silky, smooth and feels lightweight but gives great coverage. I'm in the shade w4 Natural beige and it matches my yellow/olive tone skin perfectly. It's so hard to find drugstore foundations for people with yellow or olive undertones.. most drugstore foundations tend to run very pink which looks awful on me. Also this foundation doesn't break me out at all. This is my hg foundation for sure.

After mac studio fix powder (c40), this foundation is near-perfect match to my skin tone. I like how loreal did a classification of their shading range from warm neutral to cool. And they even have to make a 4.5 because it's the color most people have. Clever!
Texture is okay, tho when I use and apply more I get streaking effect. So it is just meant to be a medium coverage liquid foundation. Now, if they can only make a more satin, skin-like less-matte and no sunscreen version of this product, il give it 5 lippies. Their lumi line doesnt work well for me, shade is ruddish for a supposedly warm tone.
Another selling point to this prod is it has a generous amount for the money I spent on it. My night time wax-based cream foundations which I occasionally use are always hitting pan-bottom after 3-4 applications only. So I can consider this as an economical one.
Maybe Il buy another of this, until I get to find my perfect HG daytime liquid foundation.

I simply love this foundation.it made my skin look flawless and subtle.I would definitely buy this again but i know there are also other superb foundations on the market so right now i'm on a lookout for them.

I love this product for its colors but I have skin that become oily by 9AM and this makeup just makes me feel EVEN MORE OILY. I don't like how I look in the sun I look super duper shiny and I hate it. The texture of my face is just gross
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
To me this products texture feels like paint ! It doesn't last very long I have combination skin on my dry spots it looks awful and scaley on my oily spots it just doesn't stay and looks like I have water paint on my face this product is just not for me

I feel the easiest way for me to share my opinions and thoughts on
this foundation is to write out a list of pros and cons. I am a makeup junkie and I absolutley love trying and buying new products, especially foundation- liquid, creme, mouse, powder, I love it all!
Okay so let's start with the Pros (the good) of True Match:
-It's a medium to full coverage foundation with build-able coverage
(meaning, you can keep adding more to get the perfect coverage,
WITHOUT LOOKING CAKEY AND GROSS!);
-This product is not kidding when it says SUPER-BENDABLE because it really does blend so seamlessly into the skin. I use a brush to apply, and then a blending brush and blending pad to get rid of any lines you may have;
-It's oil- free and has SPF 17, I never break out from this foundation, I love that it's oil free because with my combination skin, I would rather moisturize with my own products before applying this foundation over the product containing any kind of oil. The sunscreen is just an added bonus, because it eliminates one extra step in the summertime when I need it most;
-They have an enormous range of colors- I cant even tell you how many. At least 20. It's pretty simple to find a shade that best suits you. If you are unable (which is highly unlikley), the colors are able to be blended together;
-They also have three separate collections of colors for cool undertones, neutral undertones, and warm undertones- which makes all the difference when trying to find that right shade;
-This foundation suits ALL SKIN TYPES! (Oily, Combo, & Dry);
-This tiny bad boy lasts quiet a long time, I can't tell how much I have left in my bottle, but I've already had mine for easily over 6 months;
Okie dokie now moving on to the Cons (the bad) of True Match:
-The packaging isn't the best, because it's a glass bottle and it can break easily. This has never happened to me, however I have seen this happen in makeup aisles in the store several times;
-Also the packaging is very inconvenient because you have to pour out the foundation onto a sponge or a brush- so sometimes it can be pretty messy because you have no control over how much product comes out;
-There is a lot of product that ends up getting wasted because there is no pump on this bottle;
-And the last con I can think of is that it doesn't work perfect with my skin during those few times a year when my skin gets REALLY dry and flakey. I moisturize, prime, and apply this to my face and it almost looks like I have scales, with all the dry patches and the makeup making it ten times worse.
As you can see I have a lot more GOOD to say than BAD, therefore I am rating this foundation 4/5 lippies!
Last, I will recommend this foundation to EVERY woman- fair, olive, dark, dry, combination, oily- it works well for all skin colors and types. Also, I will absolutely repurchase these foundations again. I use them for my Makeup Kit thus why I have several of the colors. They mix very well too for those who can't seem to find the perfect shade.

I love this foundation. There is no odor, and the coverage is very buildable. It lasts all day and doesn't sweat off. There is also a HUGE range of colors which is great. It's only about $9 and it has lasted me over a year.
I don't recommend it for people with very oily skin, as it can get a little shiny.
The only con of this is the packaging. There is no pump, making application less convenient.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
This product has the most foul smell that I have ever encountered in a foundation, the finish on the skin is glowing but the smell is horrendous! The pump also gets clogged quite quickly (In the uk it has a pump).
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Tan Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
firstly lets talk about the foundation. It is poorly package. A lot can come out at once. Although if you use to much it seems cakey. This foundation how ever is amazing. Great colour! I would buy this again! Now for the concealer, I've been using the stick and I've purchased the wrong colour, however last time I didn't purchase the wrong colour and it was AMAZING!!! I just bought the liquid concealer and lets see how it works!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Tan Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I still remember buying this product. I had high hopes for it. I had researched it on youtube and figured that I'd read up on it. I was mistaken, though. I have now come to find out that this product is fantastic for people without oily skin. I'm one of the very unfortunate women that has uncontrollably oily skin. This foundation somehow made my face look patchy and oily at the same time. It wore off in a matter of hours, every single time I applied it. I do admit that it is very easy to blend. I often find myself thinking, "It's only $8. Should I try it again?" Then I remember why I cannot stand the product.
Short wear life
Causes dry patches
Doesn't work with oily skin
There is no pump
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Tan Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
It has a nice dewy glow , it makes my skin look great . But without any primer , the makeup looks honestly horrific .
The price here in Canada was pretty messed because it was 16$ and other places it should be around 8$
Gerd .. The packaging is adorable , only thing is .. Why no pump ? I don't mind it just using a pump would be easier .
Overall . Good product will be buying it again , it's my holy grail . But Be aware about the compact makeup . That is just BULL .

This is my first review since joining this website, so I do hope my review is well described and becomes helpful to others.
I'm a rookie at cover ups considering I had only stumbled across a few. This was the first liqiud foundation that I have ever used because I was looking for something to cover my acne scars and facial blemishes. As well as my discoloration. My mother letted me try her's, but because she's a tanner colored skin than I am, it didn't match well enough.
However, I bought a lighter color(thank goodness for the large line of colors so I could pick a perfect shade for myself). My skin is dry, oily and prone to breaking out, so I'm always trying to find a foundation that works perfectly for those concerns I have. This makeup turned out to be rather well.
I never had the unwanted blemishes from this because of this, and it was a marvelous cover up. But I fear that it didn't stay for very long. I estimate about five to six hours in held, which I need longer.
But after my first try with it, I blended it with my powder makeup(Rimmel Stay Matte, Shine Control) and it lasted longer than I thought it would! No oil, no shine and it still stayed strong when I did my karate class. Which can make you sweat buckets!
I would recommend this, and re-buy, as long as I combined my powder with it.
