Not for dry skinned girls. Couldn't figure out how to apply it. Made my dry skin look flaky. Love loreal but not this one.

After jumping on the mineral makeup bandwagon a year ago, I realised it wasn't doing me much good or even providing close to the level of coverage I want/need. Hence I decided to do back to trusty old liquid foundation. I picked this up in Golden Beige (W3) and found this is quite a good match for my pan-asian skintone. It has a very liquid-y texture which makes it great for blending and preventing any cakiness, while with my MAC foundation it is literally a race against time trying to blend it before it dries! I have found True Match, while it provides a dewy look, controls the 'oilies' quite well and I don't end up looking like a walking disco ball at the end of the day. I have noticed the shimmers in the product, and I must say that is my only gripe about it. Packaging is superb and great for everyday use. Will repurchase. UPDATE: Have been using this on a daily basis for a couple of weeks and this has not broken me out at all. Also I have found I need to moisturise my skin very well before applying this as this tends to emphasise any flakiness or dry areas on the skin, such as around the nose, etc.

This foundation is medium to full coverage and very buildable. I find it to match my skin tone pretty well and blended very nicely. It makes my skin look very dewy and fresh. I've been reaching more and more for this over my other foundations. The packaging isn't the greatest. I wish there was a pump. As far as drugstore foundations go, this one is decently priced. A little goes a long way. It's not my HG but I will keep searching.

I used this foundation for a few years and when I found something better, I dropped this like a rock. It will stay dropped unless they make this formula with a pump. The foundation itself is a great color, it is exactly as claimed, but without a pump, it takes in bacteria and dust, making it get thick too quickly.

Overall, the color and formula is great, the packaging sucks.

i like this foundation. It matches my fair, neutral toned skin PERFECTLY. i have always had trouble finding the right shade, it's always either too pink for my skin or too yellow. it doesn't look too matte too dewy, it's just right. However, the coverage is a bit on the light side. i have scars from acne and you can still see the mark through the foundation. i could probably fix this by wearing powder, but i don't like the heavy, caked feeling of it, so i guess that's my choice.
all in all it's a good, comfortable feeling foundation. i will buy again.

I like this foundation for mixing with Colorstay. Together, they make the perfect foundation! This corrects the CS color, makes it more blendable, and fixes the finish. And the CS makes this stuff stay on. I got it in a swap, and I would pay for it if I run out. I think I'm around a NC 35 and I use W4 which is a tiny bit too light on its own.

*sigh* I really wanted to like this, but the coverage was so bizarre! When I first applied this, I was excited because the color was really quite close to my warm, pale skin. I was even willing to forgive the less-than-optimal packaging. However, by the time I finished applying it, my skin looked a little uneven, and I saw why when I looked closer. The foundation was highlighting my pores! The coverage on my skin was light, but the foundation sunk right into my pores and filled them, making them look like little whiteheads all over my cheeks! Unless I can find a way to thicken this a bit, it's a bust for me.

Living in a really humid climate, I've tried dozens of foundations in hopes of finding one that won't make me shinier or break me out. Lucky for me, I tried this one and it worked perfectly. Lasting enough coverage, doesn't feel too heavy, and doesn't break me out at all. Love it. However, hate the packaging.

Fellow ghosts, rejoice!
The coverage is very light, but it's one of the only drug-store foundations I've been able to find that actually matches my super pale skin tone!! (I use W-1, which STILL looks slightly too dark for me, but because the coverage is light it blends in with my skin.)
The only con is that you need to do a light powder dusting over this, it can't be worn on its own. I pair this with translucent powder and I'm good to go. :)

Pros:
Medium to heavy coverage
Nice dewy finish
Easy to work with, and like the name says, it is very blendable!
Easy to match with your skintone

Cons:
Packaging.. but you guys all know this.
I did find that it transferred very easily, even on clothing unfortunately.
Not very good for dry skin, clung onto my dry patches :(

For 9.99 CAD, it wasn't too bad, but I'd rather find something more moisturizing.
