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.

Works great in the winter for me. Perfect skin match. Feels super light, yet it evens out skintone very nicely. Can emphasize pores if i'm sweating - another reason why it works better for me in the winter. Don't think it would be the best fit for a very oily person, but it's cheap so it wouldn't be that much of a loss if you didn't like it.

Amazing great shades so easy loveeee

Pros: price, easy to find, feels light on skin.
Cons: not enough coverage for me, prefer foundations without spf, and not the best color match.
I actually read Dita Von Teese likes this in n1. She seems paler than me. I've got some olive undertones in my skin, whereas she's just white-white. Somehow, this is slightly dark and pink on me! It's not a bad foundation. If you're looking for a foundation that's cheap and has light coverage, it's great for you. I prefer more coverage and the closest color match possible. I seem to have better luck with MAC and Laura Mercier for color. (Tip, if any of you are fair-skinned but have more neutral/yellow undertones, check them out! Much better than Make Up For Ever, Loreal, etc., have been for me.)

The shade range is great, but like any drugstore foundation, you kind of have to play a guessing game to get your match. The bottles don't have a pump, which isn't uncommon, but it's a negative in my book. The foundation has good coverage initially, and feels really nice on the skin, but it wears off within a few hours on my combination-oily skin, even when set with powder and a setting spray. Been using it for a week or two and it hasn't made me break out any worse than usual. Not bad overall, but I need my foundation to stay on for more than a couple of hours.

Both my sister and I have this foundation, because as she's irish and I think I'm Targaryen or something, we're both extremely pale and it's hard to find shades light enough, much less shades pale enough that don't look orangey. She has acne-prone skin and I have dry-to-normal skin and This was the first liquid foundation I ever bought and used because it matched my skin tone. It goes on well, doesn't make flaky dry skin look gross (which is super important) and it stays where it's supposed to, and I only had to powder my face once at a sweltering summer braai, and I've since bought MUFE's HD foundation and I'm kicking myself every time i use it because for like sixty bucks after tax, I've got a bottle of overpriced stuff that works JUST the SAME as l'oreal! I can't wait to run out of MUFE so I can go back to quality makeup that doesn't make me go hungry! On the bright side, I guess this L'Oreal is definitely considered a dupe for MUFE!

Love the true match Lumi one. Blend good,looks good, and gives me a dewy look. Last pretty well and i work 12 hrs a day in a ICU. But by the end of the day I look oily but i run around like a chicken with its head cut off. but i still look good doing it! lol

This foundation made my skin go from bad to worse. I've suffered from acne for 3 years and my skin is oil prone. This foundation I found was easy to apply but after about 3 hours I would go to the mirrors in the school bathroom and my skin would be patchy and super oily. Would not buy again.

Hi! So I think this could be a good foundation but not for my skin! I did not like this foundation at all and I really wanted to like it. It's exactly like how its describes on the bottle super bendable which is why I wanted to like it cause it blends beautifully into the skin and it's light but it is NOT for oily skin. I always use a powder on top of foundations and normally a primer too but this foundation just made me sooo oily and my face was sticky almost instantly. It also broke me out badly. I wasn't sure if it was the foundation at first but as soon as I stopped using it. My skin started to clear up. It's not for oily skin at all. I know it doesn't claim to be oil free but I didn't think it would make me so oily. Acne prone oily skin should stay away. I think if you have dry to normal skin and it's not very sensitive then you might like this foundation. Anyways hope this helped!

I bought this foundation because I am a stupid, stupid girl. Ugh. It's kind of like when you already have a boy/girlfriend who is perfect for you in every way, yet you cheat on them with that loser you met on holiday with your girls. Revlon CS is my skin's one true love, and the mistake that was True Match made me realise it.
What originally attracted me to this bad decision was the colour, a beautifully pale, yellow toned sort of vibe (I have it in Soft Ivory n1). It went on looking like an absolute dream! Just the right amount of coverage, very thin, great colour match, and super blendable (duh and duh). I dusted with powder and went out feeling like a walking flawless complexion.
Fast forward about 4 hours when I went to touch up my lipstick and was greeted by an orangey, caked-on looking skin. It had oxidised soooo badly on me, and looked all streaky on my oily bits, like bad self-tan. EW. I don't even use much foundation for god's sake.
Anyway, long story short, I kept using it for around 2 weeks trying different application methods (sponge and brush) before I got totally fed-up and just bought some more of my beloved Colorstay.
But wait! There's a happy ending. I did my granny's makeup with it and it suits her like a dream, presumably because her skin isn't as oily as mine. So maybe it's better suited to those with a normal/dry skin type, as it would be longer wearing and wouldn't oxidise.

pretty decent for my taste
when applied with fingers it is so bad but with my sigma f80 it is so beatifull at first then it starts to get oily even when i have a dry skin !!
the colore is not matching althought they have a great range i have N1 but it is yellow and dark for me
i rate it 3 as it did not break me out and it has a good covarage as i dont need much
bended easily with a brush as i said before
but i definitly woudnt buy it again

I love the fact that it matches my yellow skin tone but that's all.. It break me out a bit and make me oily like crazy! The packaging sucks, I wish it had a pump..
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
I really like this foundation. I rated 4 lippies instead of 5 because alone (just foundation and a setting powder) it made me greasy and needed a touch up. Not a big deal but still. I use it with my Sonia Kashuk transparent matte gel and a setting powder and didn't get greasy or need a touch up. The color match is good for me, I bought W5 and its perfect. Packaging isn't a big deal for me, I'm more concerned with the product inside! Overall I would definitely purchase again!

Sigh....I had a rather long review of this, but decided to just get to the basics...PROs/CONs... this is yet another foundation that will be returned.
is thin but buildable
if you get the right shade (see CONs) it will even out your skin tone nicely
did not dry out my dry skin, but I only had it on for about 5 hours (put it on after work before I went out for dinner.)
took me three tries to get the right shade although I used both the online L'Oreal site AND the in store color match thing
faded after about 5 hours, but it does not claim to be long wearing
completely clogged the pores on my nose, looked horrible after a few hours..I have never had this happen with a foundation before
the bottle really needs a pump, cute bottle but does not feel sanitary
was a bit luminous at first, but nice finish which turned a little greasy over the course of 5 hours -- I have dry skin so I can only imagine what this does to someone with oily skin

I have very very pale skin, too pale for 99% of all drugstore and high end foundations. Even most light shades are too dark. I bought this in W1, and it was the PERFECT match. Exact same color as my skin. I loved this the first time I used it because it just looked so good. I set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder and about 3-4 hours later my skin was a nasty, oily mess. It feels gross to the touch. My seond complaint about this is that it broke me OUT! Not a lot of big red ones (I did have a few though) just little, but very visible, bumps where my pores were so clogged. This happened after about 2-3 uses. I just love that this matched my skin so well. It may work better in the winter when my skin is drier.

Its ok i guess its really runny and i find that it doesn't really do the job :\

I bought this foundation in an attempt to reduce the breakouts that were coming from L'Oreal's Visible Lift foundation. It claimed that it was oil-free and had a variety of different color matches, and therefore I thought I'd give it a shot.
COVERAGE & OVERALL FINISH:
The coverage of this foundation is relatively light, although it can be built up to a strong medium coverage. True Match is relatively good at covering scars, but you'll need a concealer if you have blemishes as this foundation won't cover them.
The overall finish of this is so-so. It looks great when first applied (as most foundations do), but after two to four hours it starts to look really splotchy and generally bad-looking. It'll likely stay on your face for over six hours without sliding off or fading, but don't expect it to look good after a long day--especially if you had to layer it.
I purchased True Match in "W1" Porcelain, and this was an all right match for me. In certain lights it makes my face look orange, though, which is especially frustrating when I'm in public or with friends. Next time I'll be purchasing this foundation in Alabaster to see if this is a closer match.
Overall, I believe anyone could find a shade that matched their skin in this line--it's one of the only redeeming qualities of this foundation.
As I stated before, this foundation only looks good (on me; it may be different for others) for about four hours. After that, it seems to get extremely splotchy and sinks into my pores.
Depending on your specific skin type, expect to get four to seven hours of good wear of out this foundation before it begins looking bad and/or noticeable.
This is one of the worst things about True Match: the oil control is terrible and almost nonexistent. I begin getting oily after an hour or so of wear, and it only gets worse throughout the day. I find myself re-powdering my face every thirty to forty-five minutes, which is such a hassle.
I do want to note that I normally have oily skin, but this has been one of the worst foundations I've ever used in terms of oil control. Those with normal or combination skin may have better success with this.
PACKAGING & CONSISTENCY:
The packaging and consistency of this foundation is pretty bad. The foundation is extremely runny and I find myself wasting some of it every time I use it. This definitely took some time to get used to.
True Match doesn't come with a pump, which is both frustrating and messy. However, I didn't expect it to come with one as it was only $8.
FOR THOSE WITH ACNEIC SKIN:
I'm extremely breakout prone and have moderate active acne at all times. In addition, I also have extensive acne scarring.
This foundation is one of--if not the only--foundations that *doesn't* cause moderate to severe breakouts after being taken off, and this is the only reason why I stick with True Match.
I have been through a half dozen foundations in the past two years (Neutrogena, Revlon, CoverGirl, Estee Lauder, L'Oreal, etc.) and most of these have caused moderate to severe breakouts after being taken off. However, L'Oreal's True Match only causes a small breakout as opposed to the moderate/severe ones I was getting with other foundations.
Conclusively, I DO recommend this for those of us that are extremely acne prone.
This certainly isn't the best foundation (drugstore or high-end) but it's certainly not the worst, either.
It's best qualities are the color match and the fact that it's oil-free (therefore causing little to no breakouts), and at $8 you won't cringe when you have to purchase another bottle.
Its worst qualities are the fact that it has little to no oil control, wears down quickly, and has the ability to look incredibly splotchy in a matter of hours.
To be completely honest, I wouldn't recommend this foundation to ANYbody if it weren't for the fact that this causes little to no breakouts. That is literally the only reason I wear this foundation.
If you have normal, combination, or dry skin and don't have much of a problem with breakouts...keep looking. There's much better foundations out there.

This kind of reminds me of Maybelline's Dream Liquid Mousse, only with better colors and worse packaging. It's also a little more matte than Maybelline's DLM. I have very golden undertones, so I love the "W" shades in this line. I'm about an NC30 (self-tanning) at the moment and W4-Natural Beige is a perfect color match. The fantastic color choices alone make me want to use this foundation, because color matching is half the battle when it comes to foundation looking natural. This is very blendable, and a little goes a long way, yet provides good, yet natural looking, coverage with a very smooth finish. The pumpless glass bottle is a turnoff, and so is the fact that it can cling to dry areas. I find that applying this with my fingers, as opposed to a sponge or brush, actually prevents this from clinging to dry areas, and gives me the light, natural coverage I look for. I have an oily t-zone but dry everywhere else, and this neither controls oil nor does it make it worse, which I find is the case with most foundations I have tried. I set it with powder, and I don't have issues with it lasting, I simply touch up my oily t-zone a few times a day with my translucent powder and this stays fresh looking. Overall, a really good foundation, that I have repurchased a few times.

okay so here is the thing, I got this in a sample size. I really like it, The color match is right on and its, well, super blendable =) but reading the reviews here, a lot of ladies saying its very thin and watery. The one I have is the sample size and is very thick. almost like a mousse, so thick that the top has a plastic stick (for lack of a better word) attached, to scoop it out of the bottle, and that's one of the things I like, that its so thick, but applies smooth and blends nicely with med coverage.. so maybe ill stick to the samples as long as I can find them at Conway 1.99 for 3 sample sizes.
