Makeup Review | Loreal True Match Foundation

IMG_3055

True Match™ Super Blendable Makeup

The packaging is a silver twist off cap on a small glass bottle. The product pours out of the opening. There is no pump. The price is $10.95 but varies by location. The formula is a liquid foundation that contains little hints of gold shimmer. It is oil-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.

My thoughts

First of all, I hate that there is no pump on this liquid foundation. It doesn’t keep the product completely hygienic. Second of all, the gold shimmers scared me once I bought it and took it out into the daylight; I thought I had made a mistake. Third of all, this is a runny liquid foundation, so things could get messy.

Luckily, I don’t care about all those flaws because the foundation looks natural and gives good coverage for my skin! I could live without a pump. It would be way more convenient to have one, but I hear that the ones in Europe have a pump. Why don’t they bring that nice packaging over to the US?

Color matching is a breeze because they specifically have warm, cool and neutral undertones to choose from. I am in the warm section of course and they tend to cater to yellow undertones. Once you pick your undertone, get ready to pick your shade. I recall matching my skin to the color coded plastic sheets they had and I was surprised to see that it actually worked. The gold shimmers do not show up on the skin. I’m not sure why they are there in the first place, as it would have scared me away from buying it — if only the drugstore lights weren’t blinding me.

I disliked this the first time I put it on. Then I did my Makeup No Buy and decided to give this another chance since it never irritated my skin. I put it on and I was told that my skin looks like my skin but flawless. It’s natural looking and great for everyday wear.

Would I repurchase? Yes, it is easily available in the drugstore, inexpensive, and gives me the flawless natural finish I enjoy.

  1. It’s fantastic that a drugstore brand offers such a wide shade range. I used to use this I liked the finish a lot, except that I found it would rub off / disappear off my face. But maybe I should try it again, with a primer. But I think I’ll hold out until they bring the pump bottle to North America!!! It looks lovely on you.

    • Thank you! 🙂 It really is the main flaw of this foundation. A pump makes makeup life easier! I use a primer underneath and a powder on top. I mean, I do this with every foundation (the powder part) bc of how oily I get.

  2. I used this religiously (summers, W3) for the last several years! It’s a great foundation for my dry skin, too. It did get a little oily on hot days, but what doesn’t? Glad you love it!

      • You know, I checked out the TM shades again recently, and I don’t know if it’s the store lighting or what, but W3 and W4 looked very similar in shade…W3 just seemed more beige and W4 more yellow. I am yellow-toned, but sometimes I find some foundations *too* yellow. That might have been why I tried W3 instead. But now I feel like I need to try W4. LOL 🙂 Summer’s coming!
