I've seen this in the kits of a few MUAs...I was kind of taken back to be honest! That was before I tried it. I had been testing out a few higher end foundations for the past few months, but was never really happy with any. I couldn't wait to finish a bottle. This was an impulse buy, but I will certainly be repurchasing! I was ecstatic as soon as it was off my brush. I forgot what good foundation was in lieu of pricetag! The fact that I can actually choose my undertone makes me so much happier. With HE brands, undertone most of the time just goes by brand. I've never been happier with a foundation, and dare I say, I may have found my HG.

I even had my friend take my photographs spontaneously a few hours after applying. My skin looked the best it ever has! Smooth like butter - and I have hormonal acne along my jaw, undereye circles, and rosacea. Not an easy thing to cover. But true match did, and blended beautifully.

I was surprised that this worked so well on my oily skin, in the past I did not like this foundation. They must have a new formula, because it matched my skin perfectly, and did not turn orange. I will purchase again.

I say I'll buy this product again, only because I always seem to go back to it since the matches are fantastic.
But I have oily skin and it clumps around on my oily spots.
If I use powder over other foundations I don't get too oily. But with this one my nose just shines and shines.
The colour selection is the only thing going for it. It's too oily.

If you like MAC liquid foundation, then you will like this one. I had to stop using MAC because I started breaking out. So, I found the perfect dupes and its this one and the Revlon Color Stay. You can also go on Loreal's website and enter your color for MAC and will tell you what color you are for their liquid foundation. I only wish it came with a pump and its perfect.

I saw a video of Paula begoun saying this foundation is an alternative to Higher End ones ... And an exact alternative to ' Chanel's Double Perfection Fluide ' for it's Texture , Lasting power and Formulation ... But Chanel's cost around $ 40- $ 45 ....This is only around $ 10 - $ 12 ...

I'm an NC 40 - 42 and i bought it in N6 , which is a little lighter on my skin ...Bad luck for me ...But this foundation has a lot more color selections in any drugstore foundations...Warm , Neutral and Cool Tones and each has like 7 or 8 colors...So i'll pick the one that suits me perfectly .

Coverage is medium - full , just the way i like...

Stays long...

I've combo - dry skin.. In summer i put on a lotion moisturizer first ( i don't use primer though) and this goes on perfect ...In winter i've to use a creamy moisturizer ...

It didn't break me out

As far as the ingredients go, it has Parabens .., but what cosmetic product is really healthy ??? Until I find a better one I'm sticking with this ...

Update : It's being hard ...This is better than anything I came across...

I'm a PPP with oily/acne-prone skin, about an NW 5-10. Fair skin is from the Scottish/Polish/English side of the family. Have a hard time matching up with foundation because of being so fair. Have tried multiple expensive foundations from just about every high-end line, Shiseido, Dior, Estee Lauder, MAC, Bobbi Brown, yada yada yada. A lot of these make me break out, except Bobbi Brown. I don't like paying the $55 a pop for a bottle of Bobbi Brown's foundation - I've used Moisture Rich and Natural Finish in Alabaster. They were good/acceptable for being a colour match and not causing acne, but not great because they did nothing to control the oil. I look shiny after 2 hours.

I've tried True Match before and was frustrated because I tried N1 and thought it was too pink and chalky. Same problem a lot of women have with this foundation? I read a lot of reviews on this product with people saying it's chalky. I quit the True Match for a year just because it looked horrible in natural lighting. Tried W1 on a whim because I've been thinking that I might be "warm-toned" and not "cool" or "neutral-toned". Um, I was pretty shocked. And I so wish I had discovered this W1 colour before I spent $120 on BB foundations. *sigh* Better to learn now than never!! Anyways, I like the colour - it's just right. Natural Finish in Alabaster was TOO FAIR!! I never thought I'd say that but it's true - I have dark brown eyebrows (naturally - not dyed) and it was just too strong of a contrast with the Natural Finish - I looked ill or just...wrong. Or odd? Anyways, W1 is just right.

And the finish - I'm actually a bit impressed that it manages oil so well. Good for you L'Oreal. You're building customer loyalty with this product (at least on my part). Nice semi-matte finish. Stays that way for a good 3 hours which is a real accomplishment for me.

Blends well! Nice medium coverage! Great finish!

I'm sorry Bobbi Brown, but I like this product better. I also like it better than Nars and Shiseido and...heck I like it better than any foundation I've EVER used. Ever.

Now, about the bottle. I'm a bit anal because I believe using fingers to apply foundation leads to bacteria growth in the foundation. So I pour it on a clean tissue and then apply to my face. With acne prone skin I try to take every precaution. I know it would up the price to have a pump so...I guess pouring it out is better than paying more.

I really like how light this foundation is on my skin. It goes on easy and keeps my skin moisturized, which is something I always look for in a foundation. It also blends really well, and I like how you can choose from warm, cool, or neutral. For drugstore pricing it's great! I just don't like the glass bottle. I'm afraid it will break in my makeup bag or spill everywhere.

Some people have said this fundation makes them break out. I have dry skin, so this hasn't been a problem for me at all.

This gives full coverage, it is pretty good. It does blend nicely like the name says. IT stays on all day and looks great! The only negative is the bottle, I'm not a fan of the packaging.

Great product. Last long and looks very natural but gives great coverage at the same time :)

I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!

I've never liked liquid foundations! EVER. No matter how expensive or how cheap, liquid foundation would always make me look like i had a mask on. My face is 2 different colours, lighter in the centre especially on my checks but darker around my mouth and chin/jaw. I bought this foundation in N9 (since that was the only dark colour available in my local drugstore) and i love it. It is darker than my skin (most notably my checks) but it helps to make my face look one colour and i don't mind going down shades to achieve this.

The best way i use this is mix a little simple moisturiser with one pump of this foundation. I feel sorry for the American folks on here because i heard that you foundation doesn't come with a pump (i honestly wouldn't purchase this if it had no pump, too much hassle otherwise). Without setting powder, this looks super dewy and glowly! But with powder (i use Mac studio fix powder C8. I had C7 but that made my chin area look ashy) The make up lasts much longer and it rather than glowy you look more natural but with a slight sheen to your face. I use a standard foundation brush to apply this foundation (the no.7 one which, might i add, is fabulous).

Packaging and price are good. The bottle is plastic which i good and it comes with a pump.

I definitely will repurchase this when i run out. Thanks to this foundation i've fallen in love with liquid foundations and am no longer afraid to use liquids!
