L'oreal paris True match super blendable foundation review & swatch

L'oreal paris True match super blendable foundation review



What company claims:

Perfectly matches the color and texture of your skin. Ultra fine pigments to perfectly match your skin tone. Super blendable, perfect coverage without caking.

Price & quantity:

835/-INR for 30 ml

Best use: 

12 months once opened

My shade:

W3 Golden beige



My experience with this product:

Packaging- 

This foundation comes in transparent glass bottle with a pump dispenser and a transparent cap with a plastic seal engraved with shade number and name. Overall the packaging is easy to use, hygienic and hassle free.





Quality & Texture-

This is a liquid foundation that provides medium coverage which is ofcourse buildable.The formula is medium thick but feels very light on the skin and it bends beautifully with the skin texture providing medium coverage which can be sheered down or build up by layering more. The best part is this does not feel cakey even after layering 2-3 coats.
I have a dry-sensitive skin, this foundation does not look dry or too matte on my skin which is already dry instead this gives very natural finish (keeping in mind its medium coverage). But as the winters are here now, before applying this i take extra care to nourish my skin well else it could dry out skin a bit. This has spf 17. My shade match is W3 Golden beige which is a perfect match for NC30 skin in MAC. This shade has just enough yellow that blend so well with my golden warm skin tone.


Lasting stay-

The lasting stay of the foundation is about 8 hrs easily with a primer( on my dry skin this may vary on normal & oily skin). I can not say how long this lasts on its own without a primer as i never wear a foundation without a primer ever. I started using this foundation from october this year which is a fall season here in India and now it is december (winter season). So my review on this foundation is based on my experience with this in fall and winter season, so currently i have nothing to say about how well this behaves in summer season.
I would categorize this one with Revlon colorstay liquid and l'oreal infalliable liquid which are my all time favorite drugstore foundations for semi natural/ matte finish. Also i did not encountered any fading, transfer or smudging issues with this foundation.

Swatches:










Pros:

1. Super blendable.
2. Long lasting
3. Gives semi matte/ natural finish.
4. Has spf 17
5. Gives medium buildable coverage.
6. Tested under dermatological control.
7. Fragrance free
8. Good and hygienic packaging.

Cons:

1. May be little drying for dry skin.

Overall rate:

4.9/5

Verdict: Its is super blendable medium coverage foundation with a light weight feel. If you are looking for something between matte to natural finish this is the one you have to have!! Loving this currently <3

I am wearing this foundation Here.
Hope this review is helpful enough in making your purchase desicions.
See you soon...
Enjoy winter
