I bought this in W2. I'm fair with golden undertones, but this foundation is just a little too yellow for my skin. It's not extremely noticable, so I plan on buying N2 when I run out. It has a light to medium coverage which covers my discoloration and some of my blemishes. I still have to use concealor, but that's fine with me. The finish is kind of powdery that can accentuate any dryness. I tend to have dry spots, so sometimes this aggrevates me. The packaging is ok, it would be better if it was a pump. Overall this is a fair product. I haven't tried many foundations since it seems so hard to match my color. I'll rebuy until I find something better.

*Update* I decided I couldn't take it anymore and bought the foundation in N2. HUGE improvement. N matches my skin much better than W. I also tried mixing a facial moisturizer (Eucrin Q-10 Anti-wrinkle Sensitive Skin Lotion) with the foundation as I was applying it. This helps tremendously with the dry, powdery finish problem. One bad thing, it may be breaking me out. Every now and then I get clusters of pimples on my normal 1-3 pimple face. But, I'm in college, so it may just be stress.. who knows.

I have fair skin with pink undertones, so I have a hard time finding foundations that don't look fake and obvious on me. This one (in C2) is perfect! I spent some time at the store studying the cards to find the right one and was surprised to not need the very lightest shade. I LOVE this foundation. It's sheer and lightweight, and the color really does match my skin perfectly. When I'm wearing it, my skin looks the same as it does au naturel, except better! I also have the concealer and pressed powder, and I like both of them, too.

I find l'oreal true match to be one of the closest matches to my skin tone. I have dry skin and when i put a lotion on and then the makeup or even mix a bit of the makeup with the lotion, I find it goes on nicely. I buy it all the time and will continue too until i see something that may work better. I want to try a mineral makeup next and see how that works.

This made my face break out like nothing else EVER. I might as well have slathered Crisco on my face after using vegetable oil as toner! I don't know if my face will ever be the same. AVOID if you are prone to breaking out!

The color was a decent match, but it simply didn't adhere well to my super-oily skin. Also, it failed to cover blemishes effectively. The powder was quite nice, but did appear cakey and unattractive when mixed with my overzealous oil production. Still, it performed much better than other foundations I've used and the coverage was pretty good. I think this would be a very good foundation for someone with slightly less blemished/oily skin. I do hope this has helped you :)

Despite some bad reviews, I think this foundation is great. And I have a lot of stuff to compare with because I'm addicted to find the best foundation ever. This is definately one of the best foundations of my collection. You gotta be careful with how you apply it...with most of the foundations, the more you apply the more unnatural it will look. This foundation has a great coverage. And you're skin won't look like a cakeface. I have a lot of experiences with pictures in the evening + flashlight, you see very clear that I had foundation on (and it's not the wrong color, it's just the reflection of the flash light) but with this foundation I don't have that at all. I look really naturally make-upped in my party pics. :-) Oh, and I read in some reviews that this foundation causes a dry skin, well if you use a good moisturizer you shouldn't have that.

I don't understand all the bad reviews....this is a great foundation. The best one iv'e used by L'Oreal so far. The people that reviewed and mentioned 'skin flaking and dryness' probably aren't using any moisturiser BEFORE they put on their foundation, or using an ineffective moisturiser. You NEED to do this all the time.

This foundation delivers what it promises....natural coverage, that 'blends' with your skin tone. It's great....i found this foundation to be one of the more creamy and hydrating one's if anything. I have normal/combonation skin. This is a great product at an affordable price. What more can i say.

It made my skin flaky, and crusty. I looked like a dead person walking alive..it made my skin pasty once you wore it over 1 hour.

I'm in the minority with this product, but I love it. I have been wearing for for a few nonths now. It gives me the best coverage that stays true all day. It really blends well with your skin, and makes you look flawless. I would recommend to buy the sample sizes if you can find them. It has 3 little bottles in cool, neutral and warm in whichever shade you think you wear. I'm a N3, this color matches my skin perfectly. I have the powder and blush too. This is such a natural daytime look. I don't have oily skin, so I don't have to touch up at all during the day, and have no problem with cakeyness, or oilies showing through. It's has buildable coverage, and don't use concealer when I wear this foundation. I found it on sale at Target fot $5, but the usual price is around $10, but drugstores always have sales. Idon't think that it's a bad price at all. I will definetly repurchase this in the future.
EDITED: After a few months the color started to change and looked unnatural. I might repurchase again.

This is a great drugstore foundation for everyday use and for evening. I have W6 (Sun Beige) and it matches beautifully with my fair skin with golden undertones. I put it on very sparingly on my t-zone with my MAC foundation brush. It makes my skin look flawless. I'm already on my second bottle!
