L’Oréal True Match Foundation Review

I am sure that I have said it before here on my blog and I will say it again, everybody needs a good and reliable drugstore foundation in their collection. As much as I love my high-end foundations and I am sure that is obvious to anybody who reads my blog, but I also like to have a low-cost alternative that I can reach on an everyday kind of basis and know that it isn’t going to break the bank. After much trial and error and trying the good, the bad and the damn right ugly, I think have finally found my go to drugstore foundation with the L’Oréal True Match Foundation, which I have been using daily for months!

For such a long time, this has been a very popular foundation. I have wanted to try it out sooner, but I just couldn’t bring myself to buy yet another drugstore foundation and be disappointed by it. I have said before here on my blog that I tend to opt for high end foundations because they tend to work better in general for my combination skin. But, my sister recommended this foundation and said that I would love it and I have to admit even though it pains me, but she was right about it and now I am completely obsessed with this L’Oréal True Match Foundation.

The first thing I want to talk about in this review, which is what I always start with is the packaging. I do like the packaging of this foundation, but I must say that it does feel pretty cheap. It is just a standard foundation bottle with an inbuilt pump and you also get a plastic cover to go over the top of the pump. I wouldn’t say that there is anything glowing to write home about this foundations packaging, but it is also not the worse that I have ever tried. I think that the packaging suits the price point of the foundation and you really cannot moan about that!

I will say that when I first bought this foundation, the shade range that was available was pretty limited. I think since they have extended the line slightly into the deeper shades. I was able to find my shade pretty easily because I am a medium/tanned shade. In fact, when I bought this foundation from Boots, I think my shade was the deepest that they had sat on the shelf. But, I have to admit that the shade that I have got, does match my skin tone pretty well and has the right undertones so that I don’t have to go in and correct with concealers and contour.

The consistency of this foundation is incredibly thin. When you pump this out onto the back of your hand, you better get ready to work quickly because this is as thin as water. I can remember the first time I pumped some out, it caught me off guard and ended up running up my entire arm. Now, I just pump this out onto a palette, so I don’t have to worry about how quick I am moving or about it running around. I must admit that the thin consistency is incredible for when you are applying it to your face because it glides on so smoothly and blends in flawlessly.

The coverage of this L’Oréal True Match Foundation I would say is medium. When I take this on my Morphe M439, it applies straight to the face with medium coverage. Then, if I go in with a little more product and pat it into the areas where I need it, it can be a full coverage finish, which is still nice and lightweight because of the thin consistency. I did initially try applying this with a Beauty Blender, but because it is so lightweight, it just absorbed far too much of the product and it would never get to be more than a medium finish.

I think that this is a really lovely drugstore foundation and I know that I am going to continue using it. The consistency is lovely and lightweight, the level of coverage is perfect for an everyday basis and the shade that I have matches me really well. I will leave a link to this foundation down below in case you want to check it out for yourself. Make sure to leave a comment down below and let me know if you have tried this foundation and tell me what you thought about it, or what your favourite drugstore foundation is!
