L’Oreal True Match Foundation – Review

As promised here are my thoughts on the reformulated L’Oreal True Match Foundation.


I really like the new design of the bottle, very sleek and feels nice to hold in your hand. The consistency is very liquidy and it feels light on the skin when being applied, not like some other foundations where they can feel heavy and cakey. I have to say even though I chose the lightest shade it is still a tad too dark for me, and I find that it has quite a yellow undertone for a pink based foundation, as the name would suggest – Rose Ivory.


I moisturised my skin as usual, and applied my primer. I used the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply the foundation, starting in the middle of my face working outwards in thin layers.

As you can see its given me medium coverage but you can build it up to suit your needs. It leaves a nice satin finish but still looks quite glowy. It covers my spots well and doesn’t dry them out. As for longevity, it fairs pretty well, though I still find that is oxidises and leaves my face looking patchy. I have tried it, with and without powder and also with touch-ups throughout the day. I think this is more an autumn foundation where its not as warm and my skin is less oily.

Overall I’m really pleased with the reformulated foundation and will continue to use it.
