L’oreal True Match Super Blendable Perfecting Foundation Review

by Princa on January 13, 2011 · 44 comments

Hi all the beautiful ladies on imbb! This is my first review and I am super excited about it! :) I bought L’oreal True Match Perfecting Foundation some time back from lifestyle and the shade I got is c3, that is beige rose. Now this shade does not match my skin tone (it is 2 shades darker). I kept telling the L’oreal SA that it isn’t the right shade for me but she said that it is.. And since I was with my parents I decided not to argue with her!

What L’oreal Claims about True Match Perfecting Foundation

• Matches the colour and texture of your skin
• Ultra-fine pigments to perfectly match your skin tone
• Super-blendable, perfect coverage, without caking
• True-to-skin shades without tide marks
• A beautiful, flawless looking complexion… Your skin only better
• Dermatologically tested
• The L’oreal Paris site claims: In true-to-skin shades across warm, cool and neutral tones, True Match liquid foundation perfectly matches the colour and texture of your skin, hiding imperfections with its micro-fine, creamy texture. The result: natural looking, skin-true colour, outstanding coverage with no caking.

Price: Rs. 770 for 30ml. I got it at a discounted price.
When I used it for the first time I wasn’t happy with it. Maybe I just couldn’t find the right way of using it. But later, when I learnt the correct way of using it, I was just too happy to get this product (though I wish that I had got the right shade for me!!!)

When I try to blend using my fingers, it gives a bad finish. So when I had just bought this product I was thinking that I had wasted all my money! But when I tried blending it with a sponge (which I bought from my beautician ) it worked wonders for me.

scarI have attached this picture to show you a scar that an accident left me with. Though it is a SCAR, look at it carefully and you’ll notice that it is Heart-Shaped!

The technique which I use with this foundation is that I dot it on my face, and then blend very properly with a moist sponge. Now when it comes to use this on the neck, I use the same technique, but I have to be faster in blending.

Pros of L’oreal True Match Perfecting Foundation

• Very less quantity is required for covering the entire face and neck.
• Actually blends very nicely and gives a medium coverage!! I’m happy with the coverage it provides.
• Lasts for quite a long time without caking, 6-7 hours.
• Gives me a very natural look.
• Works as an eye shadow primer too!!! (I use it  )
• Comes with a pump. Hygienic!!
• The consistency is neither runny nor too thick. This product won’t flow like a liquid.
• This product never broke me out!! ( I have normal to oily skin)

Cons of L’oreal True Match Perfecting Foundation

• You need to use a foundation blending sponge to blend it perfectly. Using your finger won’t give an absolutely flawless look.
• Comes in a bottle which might threaten you to keep it very properly! (Or it may break)
• Does not blend very quickly. You need to give a little more effort.
• A bit hard to blend on the neck. Though the task becomes easier with practice and the SPONGE that I have mentioned!!
• No SPF
• No ingredient list on the product.

I must say that it is worth every penny. But I’m not sure if it gives a very high coverage, as it isn’t required on my skin. I only need a medium coverage and this product satisfies my need!! I personally love the coverage it provides to my face!

Will I Re-purchase it: Yes!!! But the one which matches my skin tone!!!

Rating : :-* :-* :-* :-* out of 5.

wow those are quite a few shades! sad that you got the wrong one. how do you think this will work for dry skin?

Reply

princa January 13, 2011 at 6:38 pm

it will work well… just apply moisturizer before the foundation.. never dried my skin.. my skin is normal to oily; though it becomes oily only on hard sunny days.. otherwise i have a normal skin.. i think you should go for it!!!

Hey princa.. Its indeed a nice review. :yes: :yes: :yes: .. SAs are always pushy and argue when you ask them to try other shades as well.. I believe the reason behind it must be lack of proper training.. :reallypissed: :reallypissed:

Reply

princa January 13, 2011 at 10:45 pm

thnx.. i am not so sure about the availability of all the shades..
And ya i used this in summers and it never broke me out.. it gives a non-greasy finish in summers too!! And i wore it to some competitions where i had to dance a lot and i sweated a lot but this foundation never disappointed me!! Love it for this!!

Hi Princa,

Does it oxidise? I am getting married soon and m searching for a good brand which I can afford.
I have read some where that this oxidises? Have you face this problem?

Reply

Princa January 30, 2011 at 8:50 pm

no i never felt that it oxidises, and it is a very very nice foundation. Many ppl face prob with this cuz this needs a different way of being applied and blended. it isn’t supposed to be applied like any other foundation. i’d definitely suggest u to go for it!!!!

and Congratulations!!! u getting married na!! Me too getting married!!! i’m so happy :jiggy2:

To me it seems like the shade is too light for you. At least on your hands it appears 2-3 shades lighter then your natural colour.

Princa February 13, 2011 at 5:16 pm

actually my hands were badly tanned when i clicked this pic.. i have fair skin tone..
