I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. Being pale, it's one of the few foundations I've found that matches my complexion, darkening it ever so slightly without appearing orange. However, this foundation has no staying power. No matter how much translucent powder I apply, it still feels wet and I have to be careful not to touch my face as it immediately wipes off and stains my hands and leaves a horrible white patch where I've absentmindedly touched my face. Even with primer and powder it fails to stay on. Also, I have never had oily skin in my life, only normal-dry skin, and in my ignorance I thought this foundation made my skin dewy, but even my friends were pointing out that my T-zone was extremely oily throughout the day. I have read reviews claiming this foundation is oil free, yet when I get home and look in the mirror there is an oil slick all over my face! Also, I found this foundation to be so cakey, although not full coverage, which was weird. I'm embarrassed that I went to school wearing it so often as I didn't realise how cakey it looked. At a time, I thought the L'Oreal True Match could be my HG foundation, but now I'm super disappointed with the results and the great colour match isn't enough to convince me to buy this product again.

The biggest mysteries of all time is how did such a mediocre foundation manage to become SO POPULAR and recommended by beauty gurus? It's bad, really bad. Cake face guarranteed. I think that beauty gurus recommend it because it makes them look good on camera. Let me tell you this, it's horrible up close. If you go out wearing it, you're basically saying "hi, never mind the 50 pounds of MU on my face"

In other words, it does not give a natural finish

Used to be my go to foundation, OK consistency, relatively good oil control, light feel, good coverage - basically an all rounder, not HG or anything. Now it's been reformulated with 'enhanced oils' it's a very dewy finish with zero oil control and it's breaks me out. Won't buy again unfortunately.

I tried this foundation in several different shades. If you have medium to dark skin this might work for you but all of them have a very golden undertone.
This goes on very thin and a little goes a long way. It was easy to blend but sets pretty quickly.
The reason I did not like it is it looked as though the foundation was sitting on top of my skin. It looked too heavy once on. It also has weak staying power in hot and humid weather, and if it rubs up against anything it will come off.
I also prefer foundations that come in a pump bottle, but that would not deter me from buying a good foundation.

I used W5 shade ( sand beige) that had good coverage on my skin and not felt too thicky. But I really dislike the packaging, I choose with pump anyway. And unfortunately L'oreal not make one like that. Sometimes I poured too much and really messed up (cause I love to blend with my own hands)

This foundation blends very easily and gives a natural coverage with a glow. I have oily skin and after a couple of hours, even if I set it with powder my skin starts to get really oily.
But this is not that much of a problem.
It BROKE ME OUT badly. I have acne prone skin, so I would't recommend it if you have troubled skin.

It's a pity since it's the first foundation to match PERFECTLY my pale yellow toned skin (in W1)

I really liked this when I first tried it. It gives great medium coverage and sets to a nice sort of velvet finish. However this breaks me out quite badly which sucks. Also the lasting power isn't that great and it has very little oil control. Not a bad foundation just not perfect for me !

First, I recommend picking this up when Walgreens/CVS have a L'Oreal products on sale. I definitely wouldn't pay $10+ for this (the price of drugstore foundations everywhere seem to be going up). I like this foundation. It does blend well, as it's name suggests. Most days I wear this without a primer and I apply it with my Sonia Kashuk flat-top foundation brush. I have apply it with my fingers before in a patting/rolling motion as well and it worked fine. I also applied it with my Beauty Blender, but since this is a thinner/watery foundation I don't recommend using a sponge. My skin has been pretty good recently, although I have a lot of redness across my cheeks and forehead. This has pretty good coverage and evens out my redness. I would put this around a light-to-medium coverage. I set it with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder and it lasts most of the day without issue (obviously I have to blot or touch up with powder since I have very oily skin, but I don't think most people would have to worry about that). I didn't find that this broke out my sensitive, acne-prone skin at all - which is saying something! Now I regret that I put off trying this foundation for so long. It has become my new favorite. I can't give it a full 5 lippies though because of the price and the fact that there isn't a pump for it. I did buy a pump for the Maybelline Matte & Poreless foundation off of the BeautyMP website and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the pump fit the True Match foundation bottle!

UPDATE: alright.. I gotta change my rating on this foundation. I've been using it for a few weeks now and it's definitely making me break out. Holy MOLY I have pimples all over my face! I actually just threw the rest of the foundation out.. I think it made me break out a couple years ago too. Anyways, I'm going back to Makeup Forever HD.

You know what, I like this foundation. ive used it a few years back and recently went back to it because I'm struggling financially and can't afford to keep buying my fave Makeup Forever HD foundation. I needed a good drugstore foundation for the time being, so I went back to the L'oreal True Match in W3. I have combo skin, so I have to use a primer and set this well with a powder as it is quite wattery and can get a little oily throughout the day. BUT The finish is nice and natural, and like the title says, it's super-blendable :) The only two things I don't like is the packaging (I prefer pumps) and the fact that it's $20 here in Vancouver... sometimes I can find it for $16, but that's a lucky find... I was thinking I may as well go back to the HD foundation haha.
