L’Oreal True Match Foundation

My Skin But Better

L’Oreal True Match Foundation is a cult beauty classic, in 2018 the True Match Foundation underwent a reformulation and packaging update, since then the product has become a staple item for any beauty enthusiast. The True Match Foundation is available in 40 shades and covers all undertones Cool, Neutral and Warm. The formula is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Aloe Vera for ‘Skin Perfecting’ qualities and hydration, enriched with Vitamin B2, Pro Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E; it is also anti-pollutant and has an SPF of 17. 

First Impressions

The packaging is sleek and simple with an easy-to-use pump applicator, it’s easy to hold and travel friendly. The clear packaging makes this product easy to spot the shades you want to test for a shade match, I purchased Rose Vanilla, in the bottle you can see tiny pink reflects which disappear upon application. The foundation is medium coverage, which blends out nice and evenly, it doesn’t feel oily or greasy on the skin and does leave skin feeling soft and hydrated. 

Wear Test

I have been using this foundation for a few months now, I absolutely love it, it is my go-to daily foundation. The coverage is build-able, perfect for the days you want a more fuller coverage, it is also super easy to blend using both brushes and sponges for application, it doesn’t separate or crack unless used with skincare products where the formula’s are opposing. On the skin the foundation is lightweight, it would be easy to forget you’re wearing this foundation it’s so comfortable, it doesn’t leave the skin feeling tight and dry nor does it leave it looking shiny and greasy, it’s ‘my skin but better’ with a healthy glow and even colour. You could quite easily just wear this foundation and no other products to give your skin a little boost without going all in. The L’Oreal True Match Foundation wears really well, its so comfortable you forget you are wearing it, I have worn it through long work days and even on nights out and used in conjunction with the right skincare prep products (keep oils to a minimum) this sits and stays all day and into the night.
