Horrible product. It matched my skin (I'm Asian), but it made my skin cakey and dull. Looks very unnatural. It also felt heavy, like it was clogging my pores. Yuck!

I got two bottles of this to try from my sister. The formula made my skin look dry and dull. My skin is described as medium beige with yellow undertones. I am half Filipina, White & Chamoru/Japanese so I have a hard skin tone to truly truly match. The closest foundations that match my skin as best they can are Mary Kay's Medium Coverage in Beige 400 & MAC C3 face and body. They do a decent job and look real. The L'Oreal True Match foundations I tried were n4 buff beige neutral & w6 sun beige warm. The n4 was too pink on my skin and then the w6 was slightly too dark but better looking on my skin tone. So if you are a MAC C3 or a Mary Kay Beige 400 these 2 probably DO NOT MATCH your skin. If I were to get a tan on my face (bad idea!!) I could probably get away with the w6 sun beige. But I think I will stick the ones that make my skin look glowy and real. Thank you MAC & Mary Kay!

When this first came out I really wanted to try it so I ran out and bought it right away. First off I hated the consistency. I found it to be thick and goopy and it didn't blend well with my skin at all. I have combination oily/dry skin generally without breakouts so I didn't have a lot to cover other than some minor blotchiness. I found that even with a light touch it tended to cake on my skin and actually accentuated the dryness I tend to get near my nose and under my lips. I'll admit that the colour was a really good match, but there was no way to apply it without it looking like I was wearing really caky foundation. I tried mixing it with a few of my facial moisturizers, but found that it wouldn't mix, it actually seemed to separate. I'm generally a fan of Loreal products, but this one was two thumbs down. Out of all the cheap foundations I still prefer CG smoothers.

This is a great foundation. After trying other more expensive brands, I find this to be better, it's coverage is perfect and the variety of colors is wide enough to provide just the right shade. It's inexpensive enough that I bought two shades, one for my normal complexion and one for when my face is tanned in the summer. I would like to see them change the packaging but the product is great.

For reference, I'm an AAB with NC35/C4 coloring and dark hair and eyes. I have NO idea how this made it onto InStyle's 2006 list of best beauty buys for cheap foundation... it's terrible! I bought it when it first came out, but it's been sitting in the bathroom after a couple of months.

The color selection isn't bad - I needed to blend in W4 and 5 to get a good match, but the application was terrible! It goes on quite smoothly, but sat on my face in an awful way. Instead of smoothing my face, this foundation literally accentuated every pore on my nose! Poor shine control too. It is oil-free though and did not cause me any breakouts.

Defintely would not re-purchase.

This foundation goes on a little streaky. Also, I am on the paler side of medium skin tone and bought the lightest color available (N2 Neutral) and it was still a shade too dark. Usually I adore L'Oreal but this foundation isn't hitting on too much.

I actually really like this foundation....? The shade (W4) works really well for me and this is a lightweight foundation that mixes well with moisturizers to make a TM. It seems to cover pretty well, but I don't have horrible skin or anything so I just use foundation to even out my skintone. I usually don't use drugstore foundations (too hard to match shades) but when I put this on, I could actually see the color change and blend to my skintone. Lately, I haven't been using it in favor of Bobbi Brown's tinted moisturizer if only because it's a little richer, but this is the only actual foundation I've bought for the past 2 years. I would buy this product again but I'm a product whore so it may take me a while. Oh, and as for the packaging: yes, the glass bottle is a pain. However, I usually will hold my palm against the opening of the bottle and shake- depositing just enough foundation to blend with my fingers or foundation brush.

I bought this a couple of years ago on vacation when I needed a darker foundation (we were at the beach). I tried it because they had the three little sample vials for, like, two dollars so you could find the right shade. This is just genius to me and I really wish that more brands would market their products in samples because I usually don't buy drugstore foundations - inevitably I purchase the wrong color and it is a waste of money. So...I found my summer shade and used it for acouple of seasons and it was fine. Nice, medium coverage and very light feeling. HOWEVER, I have stopped using it because it is starting to settle in my ever-growing mess of fine lines around my eyes and makes me look OLDER. This is the story of my life with foundations/concealers.
