Review: L'Oreal True Match Foundation...

Leave a Comment

After reading countless positive reviews about the L'Oreal True Match foundation, I caved and decided I was going to give it a try. 

The L'Oreal True Match claims to be a 'super blendable' foundation with a 'creamy texture'  that promises a 'natural looking, skin-true colour without tide-marks and outstanding coverage without caking'. 

This foundation has a smooth, silky texture and since using it, I've found it to be very similar to my Nars Sheer Glow in the way it leaves my skin looking matte but with a luminous finish. I've found this foundation to have a medium coverage which is perfect for everyday use but it is also very buildable if used in small doses for a more flawless base for those occasions where you may need a little bit more coverage. 

As well, as being happy with the coverage of this foundation, I've also been impressed with its wear time. I've found that this foundation can last for at least 6 hours before the foundation begins to disappear around my nose. However, if you do have oily skin then you may need to powder more frequently.   

To apply this foundation, I've found that applying it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush allows me to reach my desired coverage however, I sometimes buff it in a little bit more with a clean Real Techniques Buffing Brush to ensure there are no brush marks on my face. 

Here is a picture of how my skin looks when wearing this foundation:
