True Match Foundation

For a while now I have been hearing the hype around the L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation and thought that I would finally see what everyone has been raving about (better late than never!). Priceline had a 2-day promotion recently with 40% all L’Oreal products so I thought it was the perfect time to try it out.

I had been on the look out for a foundation shade to wear when I am in between fake tanning and rocking my (very pale!) au naturel skin tone. I was colour matched to W2 – Golden Vanilla which is one of the lightest shades with a warm undertone.

What it states to do…

The silky texture of True Match blends seamlessly with the skin. It automatically adjusts to the texture of the skin to create a flawless finish.

My experience…

I applied the foundation with a flat top kabuki brush (I used Sigma’s F80) and as it has quite a running consistency I didn’t need much product at all, a little goes a long way with this one! The foundation is quite light so it distributed easily over my skin but that is about as far as the positives go. It wouldn’t blend into my skin, it started separating around my nose and chin area and the colour was far too yellow for me. I really wanted to give this foundation a chance to prove me wrong so I finished the rest of my makeup as I normally would and continued with my day…. let’s just say things didn’t get any better! By about midday the product had broken up so bad on my t-zone (and keep in mind that I am not that oily, I am actually pretty dry) that I would have looked a lot better if I had just taken off my makeup and finished the day with a fresh face!

I tried this foundation out several times on several different days with other setting powders, I switched up my morning moisturiser and even tried one day to leave the foundation after I applied it for a little while to ‘set’ to see if that helped. Unfortunately nothing did help, sadly this product just isn’t for me and my skin.

Have you tried the L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation? What do you think of it?
