      • "Good value"
      • "Shade for most skin tones"
      • "Doesn't cause breakouts"
      • "Easy to remove"
      • "Easy to blend"

      Disadvantages

      Amazing product with an amazing value

      I love this foundation! For the price and its quality it really is an amazing product! The foundation lasts all through the day! I tend to apply it at around 7:30am and it is still perfect when i check at lunch time and at the end of the day at around 5pm. I really cannot believe how long the foundation lasts even though it is such good value!

      I also really like how the foundation is so easy to blend and doesn't leave you with any harsh lines along your jaw line or beneath your hair line. For me, this doesnt cause any break outs or negatively affect my skin. On some days it can feel a little drying on my skin but i just apply more moisturiser at the end of the day and that sorts my skin out for the day. The range of shades for this product is amazing, i would be surprised if there is a skin tone that this foundation cannot match! I find the foundation gives my skin a lovely complexion, it looks natural and doesn't crease under my eyes or become cakey. I especially like how this foundation never seems to sink into my pores and make them more prominent which can be an issue for me with some foundations.

      Overall i would definitely recommend this foundation because it is such amazing value for the quality of the product! It is perfect for me to use for every day and coverage is enough to cover any blemishes or redness i experience so it's definitely worth it to try!

      Advantages

      • "You find your perfect shade"
      • "Great for everyday use"
      • "Evens skin tone"

      Disadvantages

      • "Takes time to find your colour"

      A great everyday foundation

      I like this foundation a lot and it is a staple in my makeup draw.
      COLOUR RANGE:
      True match offers a wide range of colours because after all their unique selling point is that you will find your true match of foundation shade. The colour suits me perfectly which is unusual because I'm not porcelain but I'm not ivory so I'm kind of in the awkward inbetween and I feel like most people can never find their PROPER foundation colour. You do have to spend a bit of time picking the perfect one because there are so many shades and they aren't all that different from one another but once you find it it sure is worth it.
      VALUE FOR MONEY:
      This foundation is £9.99 so it's about average for a drugstore foundation. I would definitely say that this is worth it because you get a lot of product and you don't even need that much.
      STAYING POWER:
      This stays on normally the whole day for me. Compared to the L'oreal Infallible foundation it comes off quicker but it's perfectly alright for just an everyday foundation.
      TEXTURE:
      It's a medium texture foundation so it's not too heavy but not runny like water. This is great because you get the best of both worlds.
      FINISH:
      It's a dewy finish but you can mattify it by using a powder.
      COVERAGE:
      This is not a very high covergae foundation so I still have to use concealer to hide any stubborn blemishes but overall it evens out my skintone very nicely.

      P.S This foundation also doesn't cling to any dry patches.

      • "Long lasting "
      • Scent
      • "Great coverage "

      Disadvantages

      • "Packaging "

      Overall this foundation is amazing, great value for money and definitely worth the buy!!

      This foundation is one of my all time favourites, after seeing so many great reviews I decided to pick myself up a bottle as it was very affordable. The product has a great medium-full coverage and doesn't appear cakey on the skin. It applies beautifully with a brush or a sponge. The shade I bought was 'rose ivory' and it was a perfect match. The only problem with this product is the packaging as it is glass, therefore making it easier to break, but if handled carefully then there should be no problems!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation

      The L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation is available for GBP 9.99.

      The foundation comes in a transparent bottle with a silver dispenser. On the bottle are the product name and product information. The bottle contains 30 ml.

      The foundation is described as follows. "In 18 true-to-skin shades across warm, cool and neutral tones, True Match super-blendable liquid foundation perfectly matches the colour and texture of your skin, hiding imperfections with its fine, creamy texture. The result: Flawless coverage. The silky texture of True Match blends seamlessly with the skin. It automatically adjusts to the texture of the skin to create a flawless finish."

      The foundation has a natural colour and the consistence is runny, you have to watch during the application not to spill. The texture is very fine and silky and feels already under your finger just super soft to the touch. Also, I immediately noticed how quickly absorbed the makeup, you have it hardly applied such that it has already disappeared in the skin. You can feel it then barely on the skin and therefore the feel is very good and you do not feel painted or plastered. Let's get to opacity, which is long-lasting. I have this Makeup well distributed and you could really no edges. The wrinkles are well covered and the make-up does not settle in them, that would look terrible, no, we have already give a smooth image, medium, but not excessive opacity and yes, it all seems very natural and not a mask. The foundation is skin-friendly since there were no problems and make-up removal was with a cleaner in the evening quickly done. I also want to say that if one has applied in the morning, it looked evening still very good.

      I can recommend the L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation, as the foundation is long-lasting and a well opacity. The foundation is compared to other foundations quite expensive.

      Advantages

      • "Easy to apply"

      Disadvantages

      • "can look patchy after a few hours"

      Truly is a true match

      I was browsing in my local Boots one day looking for my next foundation. I never have a clue what shade to buy in foundation but luckily there was a very helpful make up assistant on hand who advised me to buy Rose Ivory. As there were 20 shades on display ranging from very dark to very light with everything in between I was extremely grateful for this advice.
      I tried it when I got home to make sure I wasn't going to look like an oompa loompa that weekend when I went out. The liquid was smooth and creamy and very easy to apply equal coverage. The shade did match my skin tone well and I had no dreaded shiny bits after applying. It wasn't great at covering blemishes and I had to use a concealer as well, but as I don't wear it often this did not bother me at all.
      The foundation comes in a glass bottle with pump to dispense the foundation. There is a lid as well so you know it is safe in your makeup bag and not going to squirt everywhere. Each squirt of the pump dispenses a small amount of foundation so it is easy to use a little at a time and not have a load pumped out that you end up not needing.
      I have used foundations in the past which have felt very heavy after I applied even just a little, but this one felt light and as though it were still allowing my skin to breathe.
      When I used it to go out that weekend, I was very pleased with the overall result of my makeup. However I did find that when I checked again 3-4 hours later it had went quite patchy around my nose and I had to reapply in that area. But bear in mind it was very hot and we had been dancing so I had probably been sweating a bit which wouldn't have helped.
      The foundation came off very easily with a makeup remover wipe without me having to scrub at my skin and my skin did not feel dry after using it.
      I paid £9.99 for this foundation in Boots, which I think is very reasonable. At the time I bought it there was an offer on L'Oreal products for buy 2 products and get the cheapest one free so that was even more of a bonus for me.
      I wouldn't say I would go out of my way to find this again and next time I buy foundation I probably will just buy whatever I can get on special offer like I usually do. However if you wear makeup daily I would think this would be a good one as it is very reasonably priced and doesn't seem to damage skin by drying it out.

      Advantages

      • "Good coverage"
      • Cheap

      Disadvantages

      Cheap and cheerful

      I usually use lancome of clarins but i was starting to have finacial difficuties so cut back where possible. I would say true match is just as good as top premium brands. Great coverage with a natural look. I normally have dry skin but this foundation didnt cling to the dry patches neither feel open pores to make them more visible. A nice smooth finish that lasts most of the day.
      I have used true match foundation for a good couple of months now and it hasnt made my skin breakout in blemishes, dry or oily!
      A good day time foundation and night time foundation. The product is also buildable so iv u want to top it up during the day then id say go for it!
      True match does have an undertone scent of alcohol/chemical which made me wonder what i was putting on my skin but as stated earlier, iv had no reaction to it after a couple months use. I do however use loreal primer underneath the foundation to improve appearance of my skin and lengthen the time that foundation stays on for.
      The only issue i have had with true match is finding my colour! I am faire skinned so if not careful with colour selection, my look can go horribly wrong! My first colour was a bit orange and my currant colour is a bit yellow but i can actually wear them as they seem to blend with my skin for a closer match!
      Id say trus match is def worth a try.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An Effective Facial Foundation

      I usually use BB cream rather than foundation but I received a 10ml tube of this L'oreal True Match liquid foundation from the brand which encouraged me to try it out.

      I have the shade 'Vanille Rose' or 'Rosy Vanilla'. I would describe the shade as being suitable for paler skins. I have quite a light skin tone and don't usually have a tan so this shade is perfect for me and it's also similar to the shade of the BB cream I use which is the lightest shade.

      This foundation is runniner and thinner than I expected it to be. It does pour out of the bottle a little bit rather than ooze out when I squeeze. This can mean it's difficult not to dispense more than I need. The consistency of the foundation means that it feels quite watery when you first apply it to your skin.

      I apply it in dots to sections of my face for an even application - to my forehead, cheeks, nose chin and under my chin on my neck. There is a bit of rubbing needed to work this into your skin. If you don't fully rub it in you can be left with streaks. I would say it's more difficult to apply than my BB cream as it's thinner and not as velvety as my BB cream.

      The foundation really does transform the way my skin looks and makes me look healthier, less oily and more professional looking. The finish is sort of soft focus which is very pretty. The foundation evens out all of my blemishes and evens out colour tones too. I do find that the foundation can make finer wrinkles stand out a little bit more though.

      The foundation creates a lovely base for other make up products such as concealer, pressed or loose powder and blusher. It allows me to have an even base for which to apply these other products.

      I do like the way my face looks after using this foundation and I am using my sample bottle regularly. I intend to purchase a full bottle after finishing my sample bottle. I would recommend to women who are looking for a foundation that improves the colour and appearance of your skin.

      Advantages

      • "Full coverage"
      • "Natural finish"
      • "Wide variety of shades"

      Disadvantages

      • Packaging

      A true life saver

      As someone who has troubled oily skin that often experiences breakouts I feel as though this is truly the perfect match for my skin type.

      When I first was purchasing this product I must stress just how pleasantly surprised I was to be presented with such a wide array of shades (23 to be exact) , meaning no matter what your skin color I am positive you will be able to find one that is right for you. The foundation itself is simply packaged giving it a classic look, however one major drawback to the bottle is that the lid is easily knocked off causing the product to leak into you make up bag or draw. Another problem I have with the packaging (and something of a pet peeve of mine) is that the foundation sticks to the side of the bottle and so making it impossible for you to identify if it is running low, leaving you to play a sort of guessing game as to when you will need to re-stock.

      But these minor packaging flaws are undoubtedly overshadowed by the sheer brilliance of this foundation. The silky liquid consistency make true match makes it so easy to blend, leaving you with a visibly natural and flawless finish. This foundation is the first drugstore foundation that does not make my skin appear in anyway caked yet still manages to hide any blemishes and even out my skin tone. Due to the thin consistency of the product I found it was best applied with make up sponges (the beauty blender is great for this) or just your fingers rather than a foundation brush in order to avoid brush strokes and really blend the product into the skin.

      Once on the skin true match feels very light and fresh on the skin, which to me came as a shock considering the full coverage of the product. Moreover if a good primer is used to prime your skin before hand, and you lock the foundation in with a light dusting of translucent powder on top afterwards, then it should stick around for the majority of the day. Not only this but due to the heavy coverage of true match I found that I rarely required more than 1 or 2 pumps of the product during one application, and so therefore 1 bottle will undoubtedly last you a very long time indeed saving you money.

      All in all, I can not believe I have come across such an amazing foundation for such a cheap price. I would highly urge anyone considering it, particularly those with normal to oily skin to give it a go, and I am sure you like me you to will be hooked!

      • "long lasting"

      Disadvantages

      • "flat tones"
      • "creates mask effect"

      good for breakouts but not for everyday use

      i have used this foundation on and off for a couple of years now.i tend to use it when i am having break outs with my skin as it is very good at hiding blemishes.my biggest problem with using it is that it is very thick,which is good when trying to conceal spots,uneven skin tone etc.but it tends to make my face look quite chalky and a bit too even! it does go on very smoothly and it really does last the full day without melting off or rubbing off on clothes.another issue i have with this foundation is the shades are not very flattering, which i find confusing as it's meant to match all skin tones,maybe i just have an odd skin tone! one really good thing about it, and i would image not many people consider this when purchasing cosmetics is that when wearing this my skin photographs very well,like it makes it look very flawless! all in all i would say if you need very heavy coverage then this is definetely for you,but if you don't need quite as much then try and go for something a bit lighter! in the past i have experimented with mixing a little highlighter to thin it out a bit which did help and really gave me a dewy look. another plus is that it has a really nice fresh smell to it. i would also recommend the concealer if you are having a major break out, both products do work well together.

      Advantages

      • "Colour selection"
      • "Long wearing"

      Disadvantages

      Great

      I first picked up this product since I have heard such great things and its apparently a dupe for the giorgio armani foundation however it is much cheaper as it is around £36 and this foundation is about £10 a bottle. It has an spf 17 so it is perfect for daytime and everyday wear but not so perfect for flash photography as it does have spf in the foundation. It is supposed to be a light, creamy texture with a flawless finish. There is a very wide range of shades with warm, cool and neutral undertones which is impressive for a drugstore foundation. I was very intrigued and excited to try this foundation simply because it has a wide variety of shades. According to the l'oreal website it says there are 20 shades however there are 23 on the boots website and the l'oreal website say that this is an oil free foundation but the boots website claims it includes 3 non greasy oils which is a bit confusing. But this doesn't affect me since I don't have particularly oily skin but if you do it may be worth looking into this. I tried applying this product with my fingers and it did do a good job which is good because I can apply this foundation quickly and easily if I am in a hurry. I gives a nice, natural finish to the skin and I was very impressed by this because I thought it was going to be either too light or too cakey. I have found that this does cover any redness I have on my face. If i apply one layer it does not cling to any dry patches on my face and blends nicely but any more layers will make it cling to dry patches so I would stick to one layer. I you are unsure if you have warm or cool toned skin I would buy the neutral since it does sit between the warm and the cool spectrum so it would be a safe bet I would say. The finish isn't matte but not dewy and I did use powder over the top. After 3 hours with this on my skin, it still looked good and hadn't faded or sunk into any fine lines. After 7 hours, it still did stay on my skin as it did when i first applied it but it did fade a little around my nose. It doesn't go patchy or come off throughout the day like other foundations I have used. Overall I really like this foundation and think it is one of the best drugstore foundations I have tried but I still do prefer my Estee Lauder double wear foundation.

      Advantages

      • " lightweight"
      • " spf"
      • " great coverage"
      • "easy to blend"

      Disadvantages

      • " could last longer"
      • expensive

      Love it! Matches my weird skintone!

      I have a very strange skin tone, it’s not light, not dark and not olive so finding foundation to match it without making me look orange has always been a chore. But I decided to give this a go, as my friend said to me “you can’t go too far wrong with L’Oreal can you?”
      At £9.99 it was more expensive than the foundation I would normally use but I bought it for a party and have never looked back, it is worth every penny. It is a lightweight and easy to blend formula that glides onto the skin without feeling heavy or over the top. Although it is quite a thin consistency, you only need a small amount as a little bit goes a long way, which means it is really good value for money.
      It gives great, even coverage and makes skin look more even but at the same time still looking natural and not like you are caked in make-up. It covers any uneven or blotchy patches of skin and keeps it looking fairly matte and natural for a while, and with my oily skin this is not easy. It make a huge difference to the skin and with an SPF of 17 it is also very safety conscious.
      The packaging is fairly simple, the foundation comes in a sturdy glass pump bottle so you can see when you need to buy more. The plastic lid is fairly secure and the pump action is easy to use and pumps a reasonable amount out without being over the top, I fins, a pump and a half does my whole face.
      I would highly recommend this foundation to anyone that has problem or patchy skin, as it can transform the look of your whole face.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent foundation which lives up to it's name!

      With the huge selection of colours from cool to neutral to warm toned it is extremely easy to find a colour which matches your skin tone. For someone like me who usually finds that foundation appears too pink on my skin, the selection of yellow-toned foundations meant I could find a shade that matched perfectly to my skin tone. Finally!



      The consistency of this foundation is slightly runny and glides on the skin nicely. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and has no tackiness at all even minutes after applying. I would say the finish is more on the matte side rather than dewy and gives a soft focus appearance. For coverage I would describe this as medium but buildable.



      As for how long it lasts on the skin, I did notice that without primer and powder it faded very quickly. However when I did apply primer and powder it would last at least 6 hours. All in all it was pretty weather resistant and didnt melt or slide off in rain or heat.



      I definitely preferred using a buffing brush to apply this foundation over a sponge or my fingers. It looked its best if I buffed it well into the skin. I would say my skin is normal to dry and it did cling to dryness around my nose if I didn't properly exfoliate each time before applying. Easily avoidable!



      I picked up this foundation for £10 at boots and would say it is excellent value! I did find that this foundation ran out quicker than others which could be due to using more to get a fuller coverage, however those who prefer medium coverage likely wont have this problem.



      I can't wait to repurchase this again soon and would recommend it to everyone!
