      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A mousse foundation which keeps the complexion matte but which is difficult to work with

      My skin is oily with enlarged pores. This means that I need to be quite particular about the products that I use as they need to be oil free and I need products that give additional benefits too. I've always been a fan of L'oreal's cosmetics so when I ran out of my last foundation, I decided to purchase Matte Morphose Foundation by L'oreal.

      What does the product do?
      The product promises to give the skin a matte but radiant complexion that will last all day long. It claims that it will cover imperfections, dark circles, fine lines and enlarged pores which was a big selling point for me. The product promises to leave your skin transformed, feeling soft and looking healthy.

      Available Shades
      The product doesn't come in many different shades which is never a good thing in my opinion as everyone's skin is different. They many comes in shades of ivory, beige and amber. I chose Rose Ivory as I have skin that is quite pale.

      Packaging and Price
      The product doesn't come in a tube or bottle like a normal foundation. It comes in a circular glass jar and you can see the product inside. It has a hot pinky purple screw top lid and a similar coloured stopped covers the foundation. I don't know how hygeinic the packaging is because you have to put your fingers in the jar and it is exposed to the air too as you use the product which could dry out the formula. The product costs around £10 and it can be bought from stores such as Superdrug and Boots, large supermarkets and also from a variety of online websites.

      How do you use the product?
      The product should be applied to skin that is clean and dry. You need to apply a moisturiser to the skin first as the formula is not hydrating and it will highlight any dryness. You can use your fingers to apply the product or you can apply it using a brush but the jar is quite small to get a brush in. You apply the product to the face, massaging in the formula taking extra care around the eye brows, hair line and jaw line.

      Application and Performance
      The product has a different consistency to what I am normally used to. It has a really light texture like whipped mousse. First of all, if you have dry skin then you will need to stay well clear of this as it will highlight every bit of flaky skin on your face. I have to make sure my face is well moisturised before application because even though my skin is mainly oily, I do have dry patches on my nose and forehead.

      The product is really light and it feels nice as you apply the product to the skin. You don't have much time to work with the product before it dries and you have to work fast to blend in the product if you don't want it to look streaky and unnatural. I tried using the product without a primer because of it's claims to hide pores and fine lines. It does to some extent and it does make the skin appear smoother but if I use Porefessional by Benefit first then the results are even better.

      It doesn't feel like your wearing much make up and it is really light on the skin. The finish is matte and not very luminous. I do want a matte complexion but I don't want a dull one and that's what this gave me. The product also made me break out in a few blemishes which may be because it contains silicon. It does however give medium coverage which covers most imperfections and dark circles. The product doesn't stay on the skin for too long and by home time, quite a bit of it has worn off. It is easily removed using my usual make up remover.

      Conclusion
      All in all, this is not the type of product that I would expect from L'oreal although it could just be the mousse consistency didn't work with my skin. It highlights dryness, doesn't give you much time to work with it, caused me to develop blemishes and it doesn't last long on the skin. On the plus side, it does give you a matte complexion, hides fine lines and enlarged pores, and it does make your skin feel soft. Some people may like this but it didn't work for on my skin.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        a great idea but useless

        I've never liked liquid foundation as it makes my face feel heavy and oily, so I thought I'd give this one ago as it was supposed to be lightweight and give a matte complexion.

        I like the little pot it comes in as it's easy to use and means you can get all the product out with no wastage, although it could be seen as unhygienic to keep sticking your fingers in it and because it's made of glass it's quite heavy to carry around in your make up bag and takes up a lot of room too.

        The foundation goes on nice and smooth and feels extremely soft! My skin looked very even and it was definitely matte which I love as I have greasy skin, plus it didn't feel at all heavy on my skin and forgot I was wearing it.

        However I returned to the mirror just after an hour of wearing it and saw that it had gathered into all the creases of my face and around my nose, it also made my undereyes look worse as it has sunk in here too. The colour had also darkened my skin making me look really orange even though I'd chosen the lightest shade and it looked cakey making my pores show up really badly. I instantly washed it off and have never touched it again since.

        I really don't remcommend this product, it sounds good but doesn't work at all.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Fantastic coverage which hides a multitude of flaws

        An excellent foundation. Not quite the elusive 'perfect foundation' but very close. A thick, soufflé textured foundation that is packaged in a little glass pot.

        L'OREAL MATTE MORPHOSE - 140 CREAMY NATURAL

        *Ease of use 4/5
        I apply this foundation with a brush and I find this gives me the smoothest, most even coverage. The thick soufflé texture makes it easy apply evenly. I do find I need to use my fingertips to blend it in under my eyes to stop it drying quite as quickly.

        *Coverage 5/5
        I think the coverage is fantastic and hides a multitude of flaws (blemishes, redness, pores). This is the thickest foundation that I personally have ever worn, yet my friends have not noticed the difference and still believe I wear minimal makeup! This is the best foundation I have tried for covering imperfections.

        *Appearance 4/5
        The matte effect works well at hiding any oiliness and shine. However, it also has a tendency to make skin look slightly dull and lose that youthful glow. I never really believed in all that 'luminosity' hype, but I really have noticed the difference in photos.

        *Durability 4/5
        The product lasts reasonably well on an average day. Just to point out that I always wear powder ontop of my foundation. Sometimes after a long day it can tend to look slightly patchy but a quick application of powder usually helps to sort that out.

        Overall I would rate this product 4/5. I think the coverage is fantastic and as yet have not found anything to beat it however, the downside was that because of the matte effect , skin can look a little dull and lose that healthy glow. If it wasn't for this disadvantage then Matte Morphose would certainly be my perfect foundation!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        will be buying it again.

        I usually have a huge stock of make up but decided to have a long overdue clear out of my beauty products, some that I binned I had owned for 5 years. I now only have two small make up bags of make up, I only kept what I use or a regular bases. I ran out of foundation this week and for me I wear foundation daily as it hides a lot of skin flaws.


        I rushed out to my local super drug shop in search of a new foundation, I had recently been using a maybelline foundation but the shade I use was out of stock. I decided to buy another brand and tried to get a shade to match my skin tone, I ended up buying Loreal Matte Morphose in beige natural shade 140. It cost £7.29 it was reduced from £10.29.


        The foundation comes in a glass square container, it feels heavy to hold. It has a bright pink screw on lid which makes the foundation quite eye catching and stood out to me when buying it. It has the brand name on the lid too. Its small compared to other sized foundations bottles but is more compact for fitting in a make up bag


        The foundation is similar to the dream matte range, it looks like it has been whipped up to a soft fluffy texture and appearance, its very light and feels delicate to touch.


        Loreal says- Discover the new Matte Morphose foundation from loreal, its feather light soufflé texture extends seamlessly across the skin for a matte yet luminous results.


        Its easy to use, I cleansed, toned and moisturised my face and neck as normal before applying any make up. I have tried several different ways to apply the foundation trying to get the best results from this foundation. I firstly applied it with my foundation brush thinking this would give me my usual flawless foundation but I was wrong it ended up looking rather streaky. The next day I tried using a make up sponge to blend the foundation into my skin, this worked much better and gave good even coverage to my skin.


        I found that using this foundation covered my skin well and was easy to blend and contour my face without much effort. It did a good job at covering my spots, blackheads and my few visible red blood vessels. I have quite dry skin due to the horrid weather and found that it also covered that well unlike most foundations that usually highlight dry skin and make it more noticeable. The colour really suited my skin tone which I was surprised at as they only have 6 shades to choose from. I find this a little disappointing only to have 6 shades with loreal being one of the leading beauty company's on the market and find that some skin tones may struggle to find the right shade. The foundation was luminous and reflexs imperfections and covered my young wrinkles well. I did not have to wear any powder over the top of my foundation as the matte coverage stopped and shine from coming through the foundation which was a added bonus. It felt really light on my skin and made me feel like I was not wearing any foundation and my skin was able to breathe. It looked very natural as well which is perfect for day time wear my face looked very healthy and radiant when wearing this foundation.



        I would recommend this to young women as it is easy to use, not to expensive to buy, but it might not work as well on more mature skin.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Best foundation I've tried yet!

        After receiving a free sample of the new L'Oreal Matte Morphose foundation in a magazine, I was highly impressed. L'Oreal never used to be my preferred brand for foundation, but after trying this particular product out I soon changed my mind.

        The foundation retails at £10.29 in Boots but can be found at around the eight pound mark on discount websites such as feelunique.co.uk.

        The foundation comes in a small 20ml glass jar which has a pink screw top lid. There are 6 different shades to choose from: 110 Rose Ivory, 115 Golden Ivory, 310 Amber, 180 Rosy Sand, 200 Apricot Beige, and 140 Creamy Natural. I opted for the 'creamy natural' option and I have a slightly tanned complexion.

        On the bottom of the glass jar it guarantees '12 hour luminous matte finish' and that 'pores and wrinkles look smoother'. The foundation is a soufflé texture, and it goes onto the skin really well. The foundation has a light and pleasant smell, which isn't too heavy or strong.

        I use a foundation brush to apply this foundation, all I do is dip it in the mousse, and smooth over my face, until complete coverage is provided. The only problem I have had with this product is that I can't fit the foundation brush into the side of the jar, so when you are near the end of the product you have to use your finger.

        The foundation glides over your skin so smoothly, it is so lightweight, and you hardly notice that it's even there! The foundation does as promises, as when applied, my pores and blemishes are concealed immediately. I don't feel the need to use any concealer with this foundation because it provides such good coverage. It blends extremely well and gives a professional and natural finish.

        The foundation leaves your skin silky smooth all day long. The colour and coverage lasts all day and night, sometimes longer or shorter depending on whether you use a primer underneath or a powder on top.

        The foundation leaves your skin beautifully soft, which is brilliant for applying pressed powder or blusher. It is easy to remove with either a face wash, a wipe or a lotion.

        In conclusion I have only found one fault with this product, but this is due to the packaging, not the actual product and this is easily resolved. The foundation is the best one I have tried to date, as it provides a natural look with hardly any effort involved at all. I am impressed with this foundation so much that I have awarded it 5 out of 5 stars!

        You can visit Boots or Superdrug to purchase the products, or visit the websites for more information (www.boots.co.uk or www.superdrug.co.uk ). For a discount on this product you can visit www.feelunique.co.uk.

        Thank you for reading; I hope this was of some use to you!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I love, love, love it!

          ~~~~~~~~~~
          Good old days
          ~~~~~~~~~~
          In days now sadly gone by, I was lucky enough not to have to bother with any form of foundation. Then I started using tinted moisturiser to give myself a little light coverage. But, in more recent years, my skin isn't as clear as it used to be and I've started using a foundation.

          This has always been a bit of a tricky one for me for several reasons. I have light Asian skin, so colour matching can be a bit tricky (although I'm sure that this is an issue for everyone regardless of skin tone!), I really don't want to use any form of powder foundation as it just doesn't work for me, and finally I am a bit tight when it comes to beauty products! While I accept that foundation is one of those items that it is worth spending a few more quid on, I can't bring myself to spend £20+ on anything.

          Recently I have used products by Rimmel and 17 - both reasonably priced and both have done a good enough job for my needs. But recently I received a sample of Matte Morphose from L'Oreal. The only other mousse foundation I had tried was the Maybelline one but I didn't like this at all - despite the fact that I love all the other Maybelline mousse products! So I wasn't expecting much from this one. But as it turned out I rather liked it so I decided to treat myself to a full-sized version.

          ~~~~~~
          Top price
          ~~~~~~
          The mousse comes in a small squared-off glass jar with a pink lid. The packaging is fine - nothing hugely exciting, but quite nice looking all the same. A jar costs £10.29 in Boots and this really is the maximum I am willing to pay for a foundation - luckily the positive results I'd had with the sample helped persuade me. The mousse comes in six shades ranging from creamy pale shades to darker beige shades. I must admit I faffed around for ages testing out a few of the mid-range shades, and finally settled on 'amber' - even though I don't like the name as I felt like it may give me a David Dickinson glow! To be honest I really wasn't sure that I had chosen the right colour for me but I think the Boots security guards would have thrown me out had I messed about any more, so I decided to settle on this one.

          Screwing off the lid, the jar is full to the brim with the mousse - and it really does look exactly like a paler version of your average pot of chocolate mousse! Pressing my finger to the top of the product, the mousse is light and springy and more moist than I had expected.

          ~~~~~~~
          Light as air
          ~~~~~~~
          What I do to apply this is to take a little on my fingertips, dot it over my face and then gently rub in. As mentioned, the mousse feels incredibly light and delicate to the touch. Dotting this onto my face for the first time, the mousse looked darker than I had hoped, and I was pretty convinced I had indeed picked the wrong shade. But smoothing my fingertips over my newly-dotted face, I was surprised at how quickly and easily this just sunk into my skin with even the very lightest of touches. It disappears almost instantly - but leaves my skin looking so much better, minimising the visibility of any flaws or blemishes. It really does sink into the skin beautifully, and it is so quick to achieve the coverage I want.

          Sometimes I add another few dots to areas where I feel I need a little extra coverage and I can honestly say that it does a great job - my skin doesn't look at all like it has any product on it, there is no cakiness that you sometimes get with foundation, or any orangey residue. Simply put, my skin looks (almost!) flawless and much improved. Applying this to my skin first thing in the morning makes me look human again and for this I thank it - it would not be an exaggeration to say that this transforms my skin.

          ~~~~~~~
          Reapplying
          ~~~~~~~
          I should mention that this product won't keep you looking radiant all day and, although I don't tend to bother unless I am off out, you would need to reapply this in the afternoon or early evening to see you through the day. However, for a day at work this really does the job for me. I also wonder if it may not be suitable for people who need a bit more, 'heavier' coverage - the lightness of this product is ideal for me but for problem skin this may be a little too light.

          I have been using this for a good month or so now, pretty much daily, and there is masses left in the pot. I think I will get six months' use out of it easily, which makes it fantastic value for money.

          ~~~~~~~
          The verdict
          ~~~~~~~
          For me, I think I have found my holy grail foundation! I can't see any reason to switch and although I wouldn't have wanted to spend over £10 in the past, I really don't mind opening this on a product that, for me, works so well. It is pleasant to use and really does make my skin look healthier and clearer in the mornings. This is definitely the best foundation I have ever used and I will definitely be buying this again.

          * At the time of writing, this is part of the Boots 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics *

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Get a tester and see if you are suited to it.

            As a huge make up addict, I have bought, tried and tested too many foundations, this being one of them
            I bought this last year in my local Asda.


            ------------------------------------------

            *The Appearance*

            L'Oreal Matte Morphose Foundation comes in a small see through glass jar, the lid is pink which matches well with the writing on the product.

            The jar has L'Oreal's logo on it, the name of the foundation, and the shade you have chosen.

            The look of the jar is very nice, also very different to a lot of foundations which are out there, the feel of the jar in your hand is quite heavy, but still it didn't put me of ( the only thing that kind of put me of was thinking about how often I drop and break things! )


            ------------------------------------------

            *The Price*

            I believe the price of this foundation is around £10,12.
            I think this is a bit pricey for 30ml but L'Oreal is a great well known brand.


            ---------------------------------------------

            *So what does 'Matte Morphose Foundation' promise to do?*

            L'Oreal Matte Morphose foundation achieves a matte, luminous finish for up to 12 hours. The feather-light souffle foundation extends effortlessly across the skin with the lightest touch.

            Imperfections, fine lines and pores appear reduced.
            Skin feels peachy-soft and looks transformed.

            The foundation also comes in six shades to choose from, if you are interested, the shades are below.

            Rosy Ivory
            Golden Ivory
            Amber
            Rosy Sand
            Apricot Beige
            Creamy Natural


            ---------------------------------------------------

            My experience with this foundation!

            The colour that I thought would suit me best was Creamy Natural so this is the one I used, it did look quite dark in the container but once I opened up the jar it seemed a lot lighter, I think the glass makes the shades look darker.

            Having the glass jar made the getting the foundation out easier for me, I prefer to just dip my finger in than to just squeeze or pump.

            The feeling of this foundation is gorgeous, so silky and soft, and I would say it has a 'mousse' feeling to it.

            I was so excited about using this after feeling it, I wanted a shine free face, something that wouldn't make me look like I had on a mask, something that provided excellent coverage whilst still giving me a natural look.
            This foundation glides on excellently, it blended perfectly on to my face and neck and the colour I chose suited me perfectly.

            The look was very natural, very shine free, very smooth, you could not see any of my acne marks underneath, the foundation was perfect for me.

            The foundation also feels very light whilst on your face.

            I was extremely happy, but then to my disappointment I began to see how quickly it would fade on my skin.
            I couldn't itch or touch my face, because it would be took away instantly, I had to be very careful with this on, after 1 hour of wearing this, it would become patchy on my face and make my face very dry, my nose would be extremely shiny after 20 minutes of this on.

            I decided to part with this foundation as it was no good to me, I gave it to my mum, my mum actually really liked this foundation and she used it a lot, it didn't seem to fade on her but on my skin it was completely different, therefore I would recommend it on my mums behalf, but not on mine.

            Maybe try and get a tester before hand to see how this will work with your skin.

            Hope this review was of some help.

            A Miracle Foundation, Gives Great Even Coverage And Colour. Highly Recommended!!

            I'm not ashamed to admit that i'm a bit of a snob when it comes to foundation!! For those of you that have read my previous foundation reveiws (there are only 3 lol) you will know that i for years i have sworn by Loreal True match liquid foundation and of the very few others i have tried nothing comes close in terms of colour/coverage etc. Until i found Loreal Matte Morphose Foundation!!!

            ~ Useful Info~

            RRP: £10.29
            Size: 20ml
            Stockist: Boots/Superdrug/Fragrancedirect etc.
            Colours: Rosy Ivory/Golden Ivory/Amber/Rosy Sand/Apricot Beige/Creamy Natural.

            ~Packaging~

            The foundation comes in a square shaped pot which is clear glass on the bottom so you can see the colour of the foundation inside and has a large hot pink screw on lid with L'Oreal on the side. The name of the foundation and the logos etc are on the bottom of the pot.

            ~What I Thought~

            L'oreal Paris describes it as 'a feather-light soufflé foundation for skin that looks transformed.' And quite frankly i couldn't put it better myself!! I have tried a couple of other mousse type foundations from both higher end and budget brand and hated them. I have quite spotty skin so good coverage is important for me and other mousse foundations i tried tended to block my pores and look caked on. This one is the opposite the foundation glides on easily instantly covering any spots/blemishes and makes my skin look smooth and even coloured. A little bit of the foundation seems to go quite a long way and i never look or feel like i'm wearing excessive amounts of foundation. The foundation is supposed to maintain this look for 12 hours, however i think this is pushing it slightly and think 6-8 is probably the absolute maximum which in my experience is still quite good!

            I never thought i could be persuaded to give up my trusty 'True Match Liquid Foundation' But i think this may have acheived just that.... My skins never looked so soft and smooth!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I'm not completley sold!

              I tend to stick to Dream matte mousse by maybelline for my normal foundation, however after recently seeing that L'Oreal have produced a new mousse style fundation I decided to give this one ago!

              I think it cost between £8-£10 in Boots and was from the L'Oreal section, though it is also avaliable in Superdrug, other similar stores and also some supermarkets.

              The first thing I noticed about this particular foundation is that it was a slightly more liquid, softer than the maybelline, which can sometimes be dry. This made the morphose foundation more suitable for people with dry skin as it wouldn't dry it out.
              I also noticed the large shade range, which I was happy with as with the makes that only have 3 or 4 shades I often find that I am often between shades, however as there was a larger range I was able to find one that suited my skin perfectly!


              To apply it felt very smooth and soft and almost turned into a liquid. It very quickly became much more creamy and smooth which made it easy to blend it into my natural skin tone to achieve an even, natural skin tone.
              I also think it gave good coverage as it was able to cover / hide any blemishes or spots rather than exaggerate them, which some other foundations do.

              It also managed to last a good amount of time, however I do feel for the just applied 'perfect' look you probably would need to apply once sometime during the afternoon, whereas with some other foundations you may not need to.

              Overall this is a nice foundation, though I don't feel totally sold by it so I will probably return to my normal dream matte mousse!!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A really bad foundation - disappointing from L'Oreal!

                I got a sample of this in a magazine, and I decided to try it out.

                ~Packaging and Appearance~
                Of course, my foundation was in a sachet because it came with my magazine, but the actual packaging consists of a glass tub with L'Oreal in silver font, and the word 'matte' in large pink writing. The foundation claims to be smooth, light and give a 'souffle sensation!'. The foundation comes in the shades Rose Ivory, Golden Ivory, Beige Natural (my magazine shade - too dark for my very pale skin) Rosy Sand, Apricot Beige and Amber.

                ~Product~
                I'm not reviewing the colour of this product, because my sample was too dark, and anyway, even the palest shade in the range is still a little too dark for my skin tone. OK, so the consistency of this foundation was light and mousse-like - so far so good. But when I rubbed the foundation into my face it turned into tiny, unblendable crumbs of drying-up foundation, plus it didn't make my skin feel moisturised at all! It was also far too greasy. It did reduce shine on my face though, which was probably the only good thing about the foundation.

                ~Price~
                One pot of L'Oreal Matte Morphose Foundation costs £9.99 from Superdrug and Boots, which is typical of a L'Oreal product because they are usually expensive, but don't bother spending this much on such a bad foundation.

                  All in all, I would give this product a 7 out of 10.

                  Matt Morphose- I LOVE this stuff! I'm normally pretty dubious about advertising campaigns for foundations and what they claim they'll do for your skin, so when I saw this advertised on TV by model Diane Kruger pointing to her foundation covered skin and saying "Imperfections? What imperfections?' you can imagine I was a bit cynical.
                  However, completely by chance a couple of weeks later, I bought Glamour magazine, and in it was a free sample of the foundation in the shade Beige Natural. I was expecting it to be too dark for my skin, as anything other than Porcelain or Ivory foundation shades usually are. So I was surprised upon smoothing it over moisturised skin to see that it completely DISAPPEARED into my jawline covering all my imperfections as well!
                  Because I was so impressed by the dewy, perfected look it gave me, I decided to buy a full sized pot from Superdrug in the same shade. Ive been using it now for just over a month underneath Collection 2000 powder, and am still pretty impressed with it.
                  There are two things I'm disappointed by, though. Firstly, because it is now July and I get oily skin in the summer, i can't put it on my nose as it runs really quickly. Secondly, if you, like me, are someone who doesn't have time to dash into the toilets every other hour for a make-up check and who has oily skin, an application of finishing powder over the top is definitely needed if you wish to have matte skin -as the product promises- all day long.
                  Apart from these two things, I do really like this, but would recommend that anyone with oily skin definitely needs to apply powder over the top, and perhaps also not use it every day to reduce the risk of breakouts.

                  I have been using Maybelline Mousse foundation for a while, but thought I'd try a new one. I was really disappointed with L'Oreal's Matte Morphose! It is not my idea of matte! It stays damp on my skin all day and left a greasy appearance and the coverage was non existent. And this was with powder on top! Every time I touched my face it wiped the foundation off, probably because it never really dried. Wouldn't recommend! Have now gone back to Maybelline, which gives a much more matte finish and doesn't look oily.

                  worth the price

                  ****L'Oreal Paris Matte Morphose Foundation ****


                  I recently finished a bottle of sleek foundation (horrible horrible stuff) and not wanting to buy it again I picked this one after trying a free sample of it.It normally retails at £12 but boots had an offer on where you could get 2 loreal products for £14!!

                  There are 6 shades to choose from and I ended up being shade 110- rose ivory. I think this is the lightest one and it is a little dark on me so I don't think this foundation would be any good on someone with really pale skin.

                  The product itself comes in a glass jar- I like this because it is possible to get every last bit out the jar.

                  This foundation feels really soft on the skin and it leaves your skin with a nice finish. I suffer from quite sensitive skin but this hasn't brought me out in blemishes (touch wood). This is definatly the cheapest foundation I have ever used that hasn't broken me out. One thing I don't really like about this is that I doesn't work well with any of my make-up brushes so I have to use my fingertips. Another thing I do not like is that there does not appear to be a concealer to go with it.

                  This claims to last 12 hours- I dont think it lasts that long but it seems to last about 8 without the need for any touch ups.

                  Overall I really like this its still not my favourite but at least it is more affordable!!

                    Excellent for everyone, a must have in your make up bag

                    As a make-up addict, I'm always looking at new products and choosing which would be worth me buying. Being a student I have to budget my money and choose certain things to get in a month. So when the time came to get a new foundation, I chose wisely and went with a well known brand hoping for the best.

                    As I was already using a matte foundation (Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in 020 Cameo) I was keen to use another mousse foundation as it gives much better coverage than any liquid one I had tried (and I've tried loads since I was 12!), and adding powder over the top to keep the foundation in place just made my face look cakey. I saw the L'Oreal foundation advertised on TV and thought I would give it a try.
                    What I didn't realise is that it was £10.99! I opened the tester provided by the store and found a very different consistency compared to my normal Maybelline mousse foundation. It was a lot creamier than my normal one, and as I have combination skin I thought it may work better on my dry patches, as the Maybelline one tended to go cakey over these parts.

                    Regardless of the price tag for 20ml, I bought it any way, in hope that my dry patches would be reduced. I had a party to go to in the evening on the day I got the foundation, so thought it would be the perfect opportunity to test it out. I got the shade Rose Ivory (110), which I think is prettier than just 'Ivory', and gives a sense if pink undertones. Once opened, I found an extra piece of plastic, presumably designed to keep the product perfect in transit and in the store. I simply dipped my index finger in to the mousse and applied to my cheek, and rubbed in using circular motions from outwards in to keep the foundation even. I did one side of my face to see the difference and was incredibly pleased. The left side in which I had applied the mousse appeared airbrushed. I could see no little pimples which I normally see, no redness, no under eye circles and my shiny T-Zone was no longer shiny. But most importantly, my dry areas on my face were no longer dry! They did not feel cakey and looked and even felt moisturised.

                    I have been incredibly impressed with this foundation, and to give it extra staying power, I find brushing on E.L.F Studio Complexion Perfection over the face as a base works, as well as dusting a powder brush in to Prestige Wet/Dry foundation in Ivory and brushing lightly over the face makes you look and feel even more gorgeous! Treat yourself!

                    I have only knocked one star off because of the price, but a little goes a very long way.

                      L'Oreal Matte Morphose Foundation

                      I honestly never thought I would change from my trusted foundation (Dream Matte Mousse), I had been using it for years and I was still very impressed with it. But that all changed when I got a free sample of this in Cosmo. As I had nearly ran out of my normal foundation I decided to use this before a night out and I was so impressed that the next day I went out and bought myself a tub of this. This is my new number one foundation and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

                      Shades: Rosy Ivory, Golden Ivory, Beige Natural, Rosy Sand, Apricot Beige & Amber. That isnt the widest range of shades but I think there is something for every skintone there and you should be able to find one that matches your skin perfectly. I personally chose the shade Beige Natural as I think that is the middle shade and the one that matches me perfectly and looks the best.

                      Now honestly this is so easy to apply. Its actually a bit thicker and creamier than other mousse foundations I have used but it doesnt feel heavy or thick on your face at all. You dont look caked on or orange but it really does give you full, even coverage and it hides any spots or blemishes easily. Unlike other mousse foundations I dont think that this accentuates dry skin at all in fact it just evens everything out and you dont have any of the flaky skin that some foundations give you. This really does give the best coverage of any foundation I have ever tried and it lasts all day/night without you needing to re-apply. I think I could gush about this all day and I reckon everyone should try this out, its fabulous!

                      This doesnt leave you with any orange lines or tell tale tide marks and it blends so easily with all your other make-up, I dont even need to apply concealer or powder with this because its so great on its own. Simply the best!

                      This foundation will set you back about £10 which is a little more than I usually pay for foundations but in my opinion that is a tenner well spent. You can also get a free sample on the Loreal website at the moment so try it out!
