I've just started using True Match after reading the reviews on MakeupAlley, and I must say I'm impressed so far! I have it in C3 and it does look a bit orangey when I first apply...but then the orange magically fades, leaving coverage that almost perfecly matches my skin. I was using Bare Minerals, but it got to be too expensive for my budget and also wasn't covering as well as I'd hoped. The True Match seems to cover better, but still lets "me" shine through. I continue to get the oilies on my nose throughout the day, but I expect that no matter what product I'm using. Will be interesting to see if I still like this during the humid St. Louis summer months, but it's working like a charm for now!Update: Uh oh, it's breaking me out. A couple zits on my chin and a bunch of small red ones (almost rash-like) around my nose. Even my boyfriend commented, and he never does that! Ack! Guess I'm going back to minerals...

The product:One ounce of liquid foundation in a glass bottle (glass=non-reactive). Light to medium coverage - worked well to disguise the dark circles under my eyes. Doesn't require a lot of blending in to look natural.I'd recommend using an exfoliating product regularly is using this product since it does "highlight" the dry flakes you have. Plus, IMO, using a moisturizer will provide for a smoother application.Pros:wide color selectionno detectable fragrancemade my skin look very smoothspf 17didn't make me break out! (your miles may vary)Cons:has to be shaken before application the twist-off cap is somewhat cumbersome (I'd prefer a pump-style product)Very little staying power in the heat, it started melting off in 3 hoursIt isn't long-lasting so I'm returning this. Too bad, I could live with everything else. :(

I wish there was a third option for "will you buy this product again?": HELL NO! I am soooo livid right now.... I really truly despise this product. First off, it never dried, or set in or whatever. I applied it at 7am and took it off at 1pm.... it still felt the same. It felt like it was wet and just sitting on top of my face, and anytime I would touch my face it would come off! I have been scared all day (I am at work) I couldn't stop looking in the mirror to make sure my face was still "on". To top it off, the lady that helped me pick out my color (at walgreens) was dead wrong, so when the product would scrape off or wipe off, you could totally tell a color difference. Also, when I applied it at home, it looked pretty even. When I got in my car driving to work, I glanced in the mirror and was HORRIFIED!!!! It was sooo blotchy and gross looking, I mean totally emberassing. This review may sound dramatic.... but my day has been dramatic because of this crap. I have had my hair hanging in my face trying to avoid anyone seeing! LOL. On my lunch break I high-tailed it to Walmart and got some Revlon Colorstay, face wash and a towel, then went into my work bathroom and got that crap off! Now my hair is in a ponytail and I can proudly show my face again. Sheesh.

this foundation is has its pros and cons.first, the shade selection is excellent. i chose n4 - and the foundation perfectly melts into my skin. for drugstore foundation, this is the best shade i have ever found. i like the littel glass jar. it is small enough to carry and the foundation itself is smooth.the problem is its endurance. since i have oily skin, no foundation ever stays on for more than 6 hours. this one lasts only 2 hours max. i wish loreal can make this foundation with a bit more staying power.

I'm quite impressed with this product for a low-end brand. It is the only foundation to come as close as MAC with matching my skin tone (in fact its an even better match) and it has better staying power on my skin than most other foundations I've found (MAC studiotech, Clinique superfit, not quite as good as revlon colorstay softflex but i hated the finish and texture of that). I have very combination blemish prone skin, and find that although it does accentuate dry areas, if I apply straight after moisturising and am careful to blend well, i get a very even finish. It has amazing coverage for such a thin, light foundations, I don't need to wear concealer at all and I have big red blemish marks and acne scars and it almost completely covers them. It finishes to a lovely powedery soft smoothness. I will definitely repurchase, I am in love with this foundation! My HG for the forseeable future! The only way they could make it better is to add SPF!

I don't use foundation regularly, but use this W2 for perfectly even-toned skin on special occasions. I feel like it dries to a smooth powdery finish, so maybe that is why people complain that it dries out their skin. I always apply it shortly after I moisturize, so I haven't had a problem with dryness.

For me, this is the No 1. Foundation, after testing many. I use W2 and it blends and matches perfectly. I dont feel that it leaves my skin dry,as I use the L'Oreal Happyderm moisturiser beforehand. It actually makes my skin dewy and almost silky on my cheeks. I wouldnt say its the best for covering acne, but it fairs alright and makes my uneven and red nose even. Although L'Oreal can be expensive and the bottle is quite small, its still the only foundation that works for me and makes my skin look airbrushed and natural.

I despise foundation. I prefer to leave all the blemishes, pores, redness, whatever on my face out in the open for the whole world to see rather than slather oppressive orangy gunk all over every day. That said, when I absolutely have to wear foundation, this is what I wear. I have extremely pale skin, and generally when I buy foundation I have to choose between looking orange or looking chalky and washed out. I have this in N1, and it's a perfect match--not orange or zombie-esque! Yay! The coverage is moderate; it doesn't cover everything, but it evens my skin out, tones down redness, hides pores, and doesn't leave that obvious "Hey everyone look at my mismatched foundation!" line around my jaw. Even though it doesn't completely cover everything, it doesn't highlight pimples or dryness, either. It looks natural, and lasts all day (or all evening, which is when I usually wear foundation when it's absolutely necessary) without sliding around, flaking off, or changing color. I have EXTREMELY blemish-prone skin, and this stuff doesn't break me out any worse than I already am. I wear this with Almay Clear Complexion pressed powder in Ivory 02--which sets the foundation, stops oilies, and matches well--but I'll probably try the True Match powder when I run out.

If you have oily skin like me, this product will dissipate in about 2 hours. It also highlights every small (or large) flake you may have on your face. But, I do have to say this: if I had perfect skin (not oily with big pores) and just needed to even out my tone this product would be perfect. It blends seamlessly on your skin and feels so light, as if you don't have any makeup on at all. Paired with the blush, this is great for good skin. It's definitely not good for an 8 hour workday.
