Review : L'Oreal True Match Foundation


Hi Ladies, 

Welcome back to my blog :-) 

This morning I posted a picture of the L'Oreal True Match foundation that got a lot of attention. 
I have heard so many great things about this foundation, and decided to give it a go today, and see if it lived up to the hype. 
I have always been someone who sticks to one foundation, but as I am running a beauty blog, I felt it was only right to start trying out alternatives and providing you with some reviews and my thoughts on some drugstore brands too.

I applied the True Match foundation in shade W3, which was perfect for my usual NC25/30 shade skin. I used my Medium Duo Fibre brush from Nima Brushes to apply it (Pic below) I am wearing Cocoa Brown 1 Hour tanning mousse, and this shade matches it perfectly. 
It feels very light on the skin when applying it, and gives a medium coverage. It is very buildable so if you prefer a heavier coverage, just apply a second layer. 
I have normal to oily skin and this sat lovely on my skin all day. It may also have something to do with what I wore under, and over my foundation, so I have a full product list below - 

1. MAC strobe cream


2. True Match W3 mixed with one pump of Buff Sheer Glo in Movie Star.




3. MAC Studio Finish concealer


4. Inglot HD pressed powder in 404


5. Buff Make Up contour pallet (No.5)

6.NARS Deep Throat Blusher


7. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle

Applied with the medium duo fibre brush drom Nima Brushes -



Here is the before picture of the foundation when it was applied this morning at 8am.



The after pictures below were taken at 5.30pm today, in natural light. I have not touched up my face at all, except to reapply my lipstick after lunch.





As you can see, this has pretty amazing staying power, and still looks just as good nearly 10 hours later. I was also out for a walk today in the sun, and it didn't change the finish of my foundation.

I will definitely be using this as my daily foundation from now on.

It is available to purchase in Boots and in most pharmacies for just €14.99 - Bargain!!! 

Happy shopping ladies. 

Lots of Love,

Rosie
