L’oreal Matte Morphose Foundation Review, FOTD

As you all must be aware I am forever trying out foundations (In additions to lipsticks, which of course are my first love).

I have recently been hearing about the new L’oreal matte morphose foundation and was wanting to try it asap. The other day strolling through a SS (shoppers stop, for the uninitiated :smug:) I was ‘hello mamed’ by an SA who almost made me try the Morphose foundation. And am I thankful? You shall know shortly ๐Ÿ˜€


About the product:

L’oreal Matte morphose foundation

Metamorphose your make-up!

It’s feather-light soufflรฉ texture extends seamlessly across the skin for a transformation you can see and feel.

Pores appear virtually erased, the appearance of fine lines are reduced and skin feels peachy-soft.

The site shows seven Morphose shades. However, the store had only 5. I purchased shade no 230 golden honey, which is not on the site!


My experience with the product:

L’oreal matte morphose is a souffle foundation which comes in a glass jar with a pinkish mauve lid of plastic.

There is a small lid below the screw lid, which is to prevent drying out I guess!!

What I liked about L’oreal Matte Morphose Foundation:

  • The Morphose foundation is buttery smooth, glides on like silk and spreads very easily. I have used both Lakme souffle and Maybeliine dream matte mousse earlier but they were difficult to blend. This one blends like a dream.
  • It’s like silk. Pure luxury!
  • I apply it with my fingers as well as my foundation brush.
  • On application, it gives a glow to my face, and a dewy look which soon settles down to look matte. And I love the effect.
  • It does not break me out.
  • It did not oxidise on me.

What I hate about L’oreal Matte Morphose Foundation

  • I have noticed that my cheeks are still dewy after some time (maybe it’s the summers).
  • Also, I need to mouisturise really well or it flakes a bit. And without moisturiser it also becomes cakey.
  • I definitely need to set it with loose powder. (I use TBS )
  • Glass bottle (my pet peeve).
  • Expensive Rs 1095 INR for 20 ml (that’s less than MAC).
  • If you overdo it may shine. So you need to set it with powder/compact.

Overall Experience:

This really lasts, around 6-7 hours in Mumbai ki garmi. At the end of the day, the look is as fresh I hadย  worn in morning.ย  On an outing on the weekend,ย  it lasted for around 10 hours with one touch up after 6 hours.

Yes, I was thankful to the SA for showing it to me.

Will I repurchase..YES I only wish they increase the quantity to 30 ml.

  3. Even I love foundations…. :makeup: but after blushes….. :happydance:

    Right now my fav….is MAC Pro Longwear…followed by Studio Fix Fluid…..gives such a nice base to makeup!!!!!! :specs:

          1. :spank: to anyone who doesnt understand this…..Rati is right….both are foundations……and they both are good!!!!

            1. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: Shivani she meant she likes pro long wear foundation thoda zyada than studio fix :puchhi:

              1. :hihi: you are funny….Nia says…foundation per foundation….Rati says waah waah…..are haan….foundation per foundation per foundation….Rati says waah waah….Nia says ab to foundation per foundation per foundation…waah waah…

                Shivani says “is me waah waah karne ki kya jarurat hai?”…….

                Nia says ” So that I can buy & try newer ones fatafat na!!!!”….. :yahoo:

                    1. nothing…just kidding….ok to be very clear… :specs: .I like two MAC foundations…..one is PRo Long Wear and another is Studio Fix Fluid…..I like Pro LongWear as no. 1 and I like Studio Fix Fluid as no. 2

                      And no… :nono: I do not apply foundation per foundation….I apply just 1 layer. :waytogo:

  7. Hi shivani .
    I have been searching for its review since a week. browsed everywhere. then came ur review.
    Thanks a lot.
    By the way ur features are too good. especially lips and nose.
    even I love mousse foundations.
    last week I bought maybelline dream matte mousse.
    i wishi could ve checked jomol’s review on it.
    my bad !!!
    it blends well but my skin turns super oily within half an hour.
    then i bought max factor panstick foundation.
    but still am on hunting a perfect matte foundation for my super oily skin.
    i wanted to try bourjouis matte mousse . but they have only two shades.
    thus in one weeks time my wallet has lost lost its thickness
    and I feel really sorry
    so i zeroed down to either buy loreal matte mousse or revlon mousse.
    I prefer my foundation to have a powder effect on my skin.it should be matte too
    as i dont like using a compact.
    please suggest me which one to go for..
    but in ur pictures, it looks very dewy especially nose and cheeks?
    Is it bcoz of flash ?
    does this have sunscreen ?
    all beautiful girls help appreciated :clap:

  8. hey Shivani, nice review, I have oily combination skin, i think I can give it a try. N which lipstic are u wearing? Liked the shade :manicure: :manicure:

  9. thanks shivani. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: …am wearing maybelline colorsensational dusky mauve…i lllove it ๐Ÿ™‚ :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love:

  11. Hi Shivani….your skin looks very glowy here. I liked the effect. Its not looking oily but a little dewy. I have to try this now. :))

  14. Oooh!!!! Sassy pics Shivani!!!! I lovved the second one with the pout!!! Hot hot hot!!! :jalwa: :jalwa: :jalwa: :jalwa:
