This review is on the L’oreal True Match Super Blendable Liquid Foundation with SPF 17. I know, I know… this range has been out FOREVER… it’s only recently I decided to try this very loved foundation out for myself! My only question is — why did I wait so long?? Really loving this!
On the L’oreal website, the product is described as follows:
True Match Super-Blendable Makeup precisely matches your skin’s tone and texture and coordinates perfectly with True Match Powder, Blush and Concealer. Formulated with Precise Match Technology so you can control coverage and fine-tune it. Ultra-pure formula contains no oils, fragrances, or pore-clogging fillers, so all you see is beautiful, radiant, flawless skin.
Coverage: Light to medium
Skin Type: For all skin types
Available in 23 skin-true shades
I have the shade 5.5 Suntan, which was labelled as a “new shade”. I have to say, it is the perfect match for my skintone right now this summer (how appropriate is the shade name too?!). And out of the 23 shades they offer, I’m sure to find another perfect match for the cooler months when my tanned face wears away. With the shade selection being so vast, it’s great — I have a yellow-undertone to my skin and a lot of drugstore foundations are too pink or too orange. The True Match range has shades that will suit so many different skintones!
I purchased a 30ml bottle on sale from Target for $9.99Cdn.
The formula is very liquidy, so I have to be very mindful of pouring this out slowly onto the back of my hand. I’d say about a dime-sized amount is more than enough product to cover my entire face to give me a very even-toned, natural, radiant and most importantly, skin-like finish. I apply this using my Real Techniques buffing brush and it’s the perfect tool for helping me achieve such a natural finish. It leaves semi-dewy finish, which is the finish I usually favour for my combo skin. Coverage is definitely light but can be built up easily to medium. Even after having primer underneath this, I don’t feel any heaviness on my skin — just awesome.
I’ve really been enjoying some other drugstore foundations lately – Maybelline FitMe, Revlon Nearly Naked and Rimmel 25-Hour Lasting Finish foundation. These are all awesome in their own right, but I think I’m going to have to put the L’oreal True Match foundation at the top of my drugstore foundation list right now!!
I see the True Match range has blushes, powders and concealers too! Uh oh.. I feel another shopping trip on the way!!
Great foundation and I would definitely repurchase!!
Have you tried the L’oreal True Match liquid foundation? Like or dislike? Have you tried anything else from the True Match range? I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!!
I give the L’oreal True Match Super Blendable Liquid Foundation with SPF 17: a STANDING OVATION
Thanks for tuning in Pretties!
