I finally had to try this stuff out, I played around with the foundation to get a hang of what kind of texture and finish this gave, after reading some of these reviews i didnt expect much,I found that beacuse of the 'dry' finish that it tended not to blend as flawlessly over dry areas, it did have a tendency to move into creases if not blended well with a sponge, but after experimenting with different moisturizers and sunscreen the best one to use with this foundation was Neutrogenas Dry Touch sunscreen,(also make sure to prep skin too, use a scrub to exfoliate to give a smoother texture to skin, helps alot) shake well and apply small dots where needed and let the dots 'set' for a few seconds and blend with a sponge,with some light powder(loreals translucide or Alexandra de markoffs powdermist) and the finish was pretty flawless, the sunscreen has the same dry texture and silicone base so that helped alot with the blending, lasted a good amount with the ocassional touch up( i use blotting papers and then powder) the selection of colors was very good, In my case I had to mix C1 and W1 together to get my True match, didnt like the "sparkle" and the bottle needs to be with a pump like they have in the UK version, I just use a swab instead of my fingers to get product from bottle, Overall a good product and selection of colors for the price.

A great foundation for the price - granted it's a small bottle. Has a very good selection of colorshades to choose from and the formula really is smooth and blendable. Coverage is sheer to light but I usually top it off with some mineral powder makeup for extra coverage.

Lacks any SPF protection but would buy it again. I have oily skin and it does leave my skin 'dewey' so For me it works better in winter.

This product did not provide enough coverage for my skin. Is was easy to apply, but it didn't cover anything and made my pores look huge. It's the summer and my skin is oiler, so I may save the product and try it in the winter. The color was good, nothing special, but I really don't have a diffucult time finding foundations that match. Just looking for more coverage.

The colour match I get with W1 is fantastic, and I found when testing these that it's lighter than C1. I also think it goes slightly lighter once it's applied on the skin. Unfortunately, this foundation has a knack for showing up *every* single dry patch I have! I find I can get away with wearing it on some areas, after exfoliating and thoroughly moisturising, but it's so much effort. It would be lovely for someone with normal/oily skin I think, as it leaves a dry finish, but is still slightly glowy. I'm not a fan of the shimmer in it either, not sure if other people would notice it on my face, but I sure do! Overall, a decent buy if you're after something low end.

This does not give me the amount of coverage i need and it does not work very well with my dryer skin type. It is hard to get the right amount of foundation out of the bottle. i have just stoped trying to wear this foundation.

This is a truly great drugstore foundation. Having very light skin, I was surprised I found a shade (N1) that matched my skintone exactly. It goes on very sheer, it blends superbly and virtually disappears, leaving the skintone evened out. The finish is quite dry, which is good for oily skin types. It didn't make me break out. The foundation doesn't have an SPF, so I had to wear an additional moisturizer beneath it. The foundation has its problems (it's for oily skin, but the silicones make it a problem for breakouts prone skin), but on the whole it offers great performance in its price range. I'll definitely buy it again and use it both in winter and summer.

I like the campaign for L'Oreal's True Match. There is a wide variety of colours for almost everyone. The Warm, Neutral, and Cool sections are clearly divided so it is easy to pick what is right for you (if you know if you are warm/cool). I have W2, which is the second lightest warm shade. Not a perfect match but it really doesn't matter. Blended in, it looks nice on my skin. It is thicker than other foundation I have used, which means blend a lot. The bottle...eh, cute design but not sanitary. Anyone could have opened that bottle before you. Makes my skin look nice but I have to be extra careful not to look too "make up-y". I think it's a decent foundation but not for everyone. There are sample packs available.

One tiny complain: the display says it contains spf 17. Some of the bottles were marked 'spf 17' and some were not. Mine was not. It bothers me because I'm not 100% sure mine contains sunscreen. :-/

1/2015 edit: sorry for my horrible review below. No idea what I was talking about lol. 10 years later and I am a nc/c 30 and don't have an exact match in this so there is no point in using it. Pretty sad. I would not repurchase.


Old edit 2005: real sh** listen to lilcutey pple return it if u dont like it and moisturize. i have oily skin and i use neutrogena moist/sunscreen. also, i dont apply this everywhere like a mask, only where i need it. this found is awesome and the concealer is even better. it has never made me break out unlike some higher end stuff- prescriptives, lancome (loreal owned too!), origins, estee lauder...and the colors for my skin tone, mac nc 35, true match n5, concealor in n3-4. i must admit tho they have to work on their packaging, its so easy to break a bottle and the colors for fair cool skin tones r kinda ugly. EDIT: i still really like this stuff and the last time i got my hair cut, the ladies were raving about my "perfect" skin! ha ha! if they only knew i was wearing loreal true match over some red spots and blotchiness! hee hee

Is it just me or does this have sparkles in it? Explain to me why a liquid foundation should have sparkles in it...

They had a lot of colors, but im super pale, and they didnt have a flattering choice for me. It only matched in certain lights, and looked chalky most the time.
I have combo-skin and it just didnt cut it for me. I didnt think the concealer was too great either. Theres better foundations out there, and in much better packaging.
