Best foundation from a drugstore you can find. One of the best foundations in general in my opinion. There is a huge color range so anybody can find the right shade. The application of this foundation is so easy because it's very blendable and has the perfect consistency. It's not drying and it doesn't make me look greasy. Keep in mind though that this is not a matte foundation, it has more of a dewy finish, so for some very oily skin types, this MAY not work. HOWEVER, I have heard from a couple oily girls that this did work for them. The coverage is great, I would say medium but you could probably build it to be full coverage because it doesn't cake up. This is seriously a great buy and I think everybody should try this foundation out :)

(Giving it 4 lippies just because I wish it came in a pump)

I bought this looking for a medium coverage for my combination, olive hued skin. I found it very thick and goopy and prone to oxidation. Also, it gave me one of the worst break outs of my life.

First of all, I don't think this is the worst product ever. I just think it should be used by someone with a certain type of skin. I'll make this clear:

*Should people with dry skin use this?
-No, I tend to have dry skin (sometimes oily). I'll tell you right now, if you have dry skin don't use this because it dries your face out (mostly around the forehead and nose area).

*Should people prone to acne use this?
-Thats a difficult question, because I believe it varies from person (no matter what the ingredients say, someone is going to break out from this product). Personally, I stopped using this for about a week and I only had 1 or 2 pimples, other than that my face was clear.

*Is this light weight or heavy? Will blending it cover my face better?
-Very light, honestly my favorite part of this foundation is the fact that I can hardly feel its on my face. If you have acne scars and such to cover, I wouldn't recommend this. Yes, this IS bendable, but too much will dry out your face. The fact that this also dries fast makes it hard to blend if you want to take your time.

*Does it last long?
- I noticed it does last quite a long time, for me it lasts about 8 hours. You might want to do a few minor touch-ups, but other than that its good.

*Price & Packaging
-I think the price should be cheaper. Honestly its a small bottle and the packaging is just plain annoying. You'd think they'd add a pump with the amount we're paying. (In Canada, it costs about $12 - $15's).

*Colors
-They don't lie when they say there are many colors. Another good thing about this product is that they even help you choose from cool, neutral and warm tones.

Basically, if you have a somewhat clear face or oily face, I recommend using this because its oil-free and light weight.

Chalky, streaky, too thin. I loved the idea and for once I found a shade light enough for me, but it wasn't a very good formula :( It transferred onto my clothes and photographed horribly.

True Match offers the best L'Oreal shade I've yet found for my light, very yellow-toned Asian coloring. It has surprisingly decent ability to last without becoming blotchy. I only wish it were a little thicker, and that it came in a more attractive bottle including a pump dispenser.

absolutely hate this product... way too shiny esp infront of flash. and it dries up quickly to a powdery sort of finish. was very disappointed.. expected a lot better from l'oreal. and th coverage is light to medium at best but what's the point if its going to look chalky?

I swapped for this to test it out as I'd heard good things about its blendability, good color range, and lightweight feel on the skin. I used it for a few days and tossed the rest of the bottle out. First of all, the color I used, W2 (which I did lots of board/review searches on to look up what color to pick) did not match my NC20 skintone. It gave an oddly grey cast to my skin, strange for a warm-toned foundation. I found the foundation to spread easily as it is very runny/liquidy, but to be streaky in its application for the same reason (I applied with a flat-top foundation brush and on another occasion with my hands, with the same results). It set to a semi-matte/satin finish but I felt like it was breaking down on my face in a couple of hours and settling in unflattering places (I have combo-oily skin). Finally, the lack of a pump is irritating not just for hygienic reasons but also because it wastes a lot of product since the foundation is so runny. Overall I'm glad I didn't purchase this myself and wouldn't try it again.

I truly did want to love it. But we have a love hate relationship. My skin is less than perfect and on occasions i felt like this broke me out because i wasn't wearing anything else on my way nor was i trying any new products. First I did notice that you have to make sure you dont have any dry patches on your face. I would have to freshen up my make up sooner that I have ever had to with any makeup. I wont be buying this anymore i tried it but i wasn't pleased. This might be better for those who have less oily skin or don't have acne prone skin.

This product was amazing at first. I have acne prone skin so I don't have good skin. If I had a dry spot on my face and applied it on the dry spot, it was fine til a little bit through the day. It looked exactly like the dry spot but with the color over it. It made my face soft, which was nice. I like the product I just wouldn't use it anymore.

Worst foundation I have every used. Maybe it is because I got it 2 shades lighter than my skin tone?? But it smells weird, and it kinda feels like I'm putting oil on my face. It also clumps up around dead skin. And I'm not crazy about the packaging.
