Review // L'Oreal True Match Foundation

L'Oreal true match foundation £9.99

Foundations are a product in make-up that i really like to try, as in i don't really stick to one i normally like to try different brands and types. I think there's something especially with foundation that draws us in so we'll buy several different brands even though we're getting it in the same shade haha. I actually picked this foundation up as i had a tan and my current foundation was too light so i thought i would give it a try. To my shock i instantly fell in love so much i bought another one in the shade lighter so i could wear this foundation with or without a tan. 

The packaging is simple and i just find it works for me, i like the bottle shape and unlike the American version it comes with a nice silver pump. The formula of the foundation is rather runny, which at first thoughts slightly concerned me as i thought it would be a little wishy washy and not have good coverage. However i find it has quite a medium coverage and in fact hides all my imperfections such as my rosacea with ease, i even find myself needing less concealer for my dark under eye circles and all this with just one pump. Even though it has great coverage it doesn't look cakey and has a slight dewy finish, which is what i prefer.

I have applied this foundation with a buffing brush, cosmetic sponge and it blends effortlessly with both, i have also mixed it with my moisturiser which works perfectly if you want a slightly lighter finish or if you have some troublesome dry skin areas. The formula is nice as it feels really lightweight and leaves my skin feeling soft, i also find it wears nicely on my skin and lasts really well throughout the day. 

 There are lots of shades to chose from (even though it's a drugstore foundation) so it is a lot easier to find a shade that matches you well, i have shade N1 Ivory and for when i have fake tan N2 Vanilla and they match me perfectly. Out of all the foundations I've tried i have to admit this by far is my favourite and it wouldn't surprise me if it turns into a holy grail product and one I'll repurchase over and over.
