L'oreal True Match Foundation Review

My friend let me borrow this the other day, as I was curious to see what was all the fuss about it ! It was in the colour N1 Ivory. This foundation is water-based in my opinion as it is so runny!!

I have dry-normal skin so I was hoping this would foundation would benefit my dry skin.
My first impressions was it was very runny and that it gave really good coverage! The formula is very easy to blend as it says on the bottle. When the foundation alone was on my face it gave a very dewy look to my face. After I set it with powder ,as I didn't want an overall dewy finish!
The lasting power of this foundation was good, I had it on for 6 hours without retouches and it stayed on well, apart from a few small patches around my nose and chin, but overall I was impressed! Here is a picture of me when I first put it on and then 6 hours later..

The thing I like about this foundation is that it is very lightweight on the skin, which is always something I look for in foundations.
The shade however was a bit too light for me, but when I put on a bit more bronzer it looked good! I wouldn't recommend this foundation at all to oily skin types , as I said it gives a very dewy finish.
Although this is a pricier pharmacy/drugstore foundation, I would definitely consider buying it for the summer!


  1. How did you find it on your dry skin - did it cling to any dry or flaky patches? I have seriously dry skin so I'm always on the look out for new foundations. Great post! :)

  2. No not at all! Even when I had it on all day, would really recommend it for dry skin, thank you :)
