This is, unfortunately, a really crappy foundation with a great color selection. W2 matches my fair, yellowish skin perfectly! I was so excited, because I find it really difficult to get a good match, and this looked great when I swatched it.It doesn't have a pump, which I was annoyed by, but I'd suffer through it if it meant that I got a perfect match.I got this stuff home, and applied it over my primer with a flat-top brush. It looked great for all of 5 minutes, and then started to separate and oxidize. Within an hour my skin looked insanely dry and flaky! I don't have dry skin! And this makeup transfers like a MOFO. Generally just crappy makeup. Don't waste your money, I'm returning it if I can.

This foundation isn't the worse but definitely not the best. I'll just give you a list of pros and cons.PROS-blends really well-so much colors to choose from (it matches my skintone perfectly)-easy to applyCONS-can look cakey-runs and smears of really easily even with primer-not good for oily skin (like my skin) -may cause skin to breakoutI would say it may work way better for dry skin, but for oily skin not really. I have to blot and powder quiet a lot and the color comes off everytime I do. It's something I'd get just for fun.

Mehhh. Not sure about this foundation. When I first bougtht it, I loved it. It blended well, the texture was great, and my skin looked dewy and non-greasy. Now when I wear this foundation I'm a greaseball within 2 hours. Ridiculous! The shade range is amazing but the oil-controlling properties are absolutely not there. May work nicely for someone with drier skin, but oily girls beware!

Oh my gosh this stuff is gross. Let me tell you girls, this stuff is so greasy! Super mad I wasted money on it because I'm throwing it out. I bought w4 and it turned a weird orange/olive color on my skin and it clings to dry areas. Leaves skin feeling greasy/shiny looking and has gold slight shimmer in it. I have not one good thing to say about it.

I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation -- C-1 (Alabaster) was my suggested shade (based on the shade matching tool in drugstores), but it's quite a bit darker than my neck. W-1 is slightly better -- much lighter, and not too warm / yellow for me. Color matching issue notwithstanding, it feels lightweight going on the skin, but the coverage definitely seems to be more in the medium-to-full range. I would even advise that a small amount goes a long way -- otherwise, it can look a bit cakey and thick. The finish (on me) leans more matte, and it leaves a flawless, even finish. I love the cute little chemist bottle it comes in, but I wish it had a pump (so few foundations do!).In terms of both finish and shade matching, True Match is honestly the best drugstore-variety foundation I have ever tried.For reference: NW5-10; NARS Siberia.

I bought this product a few weeks ago for £10.29 in boots. I was disappointed with this product because it didn't find it blendable at all and it felt very thick and almost cakey. However, it did control my oiliness and gave me a matte finish (which I like). So, I personally wouldn't buy this product again.

The Good- This product is pretty inexpensive, and it goes on sale often.- The colour range is surprisingly good for a drugstore foundation. - A small amount is enough.- It blends well (I use my fingers or a foundation brush).The Bad- Doesn't work so well on oily skin.- Only works well as a light foundation on acne-free skin. I've found that the best way to use this product on my combination skin is to apply a small amount onto clean skin (no moisturizer, primer, etc.). This maximizes the staying power. Be warned, though, this foundation doesn't stay on well when you sweat or if your skin gets oily. If your skin is blemish-prone, you need some concealer or a heavier foundation, because this product is very light.

Bought this foundation at Wal-Mart today for $7- a great price, plus I got a $2 coupon by being a member of L'Oreal's website. Yes, you have to register and become a member just like here on MUA, but I'm so cheap its worth it. The first time I got a coupon I did have to take a survey, but like I said I'm cheap. I had been a little leary of trying this foundation becuz you all out there seem to love or hate it, but I figured for $5 I'd give it a try. I do agonize over choosing the right color without trying it first, but I've never had any better luck buying HE either so I just stick with ds brands. I have a light complexion with slight yellow undertones, so I went with W3, nude beige. Got home, cleaned my face, moisturized and applied. It did go on smoothly, but just as I feared, it was just a little too dark and maybe even a little too yellow. I may need to mix W2 to make the right color or try the neutral line. Maybe doing a color match on their web site would help. With all the color selections I'm a little bummed it didn't match better. After a couple hours of wear, it feels light and not greasy for my aging combo skin. I haven't decided whether to buy again.

I have a warm undertone on my neck, and my face tends to have a little more pink in it.. So to make sure I don't look like I have sunburn on my face, I have to buy foundations with warmth in it. I also have really dry skin around my nose and between my brows. But tend to get really oily on my forehead. I bought the True Match at Target lastnight, and the consistancy scared me because it's kind of runny, so I thought it wouldn't give me much coverage. To apply, I used my Sonia Kashuk blending sponge it blended wonderfully when I did a stippling motion application. I set it with my Physicians Forumla Loose Mineral Foundation (my HG) and I'm now 8 hours into work today and my skin looks AMAZING. Thank you L'Oreal. The drugstore makeup fit-for-me search is finished.

This was a disappointment for me. The shade I bought (W1) blends into my skin tone leaving no demarcation line, but created a pasty effect that required some serious blush to fix. It settled into my dry areas even after exfoliation, making my skin look a tad flaky after a few hours (mainly on the cheeks). I should note I have combination skin and most foundations won't accentuate dryness on me. I will not repurchase.
