It’s Foundation Friday again! So here are my thoughts on Loreal’s True Match!
Loreal have brought this foundation out in loads of different shades. I’ve been using the lightest, N1 Ivory, which can you see pictured above!
It tends to give medium to heavy coverage. Although, it’s still a tad too dark for my deathly pallor. As you can see from the picture, it is noticeably darker. Having said that, I am really pale, so this shouldn’t be an issue for most people.
The staying power of this foundation is pretty impressive. I normally have to touch up my foundation during the day, but this stays put! It doesn’t really get oily on my skin either. A lot of foundations do, so I normally carry blotting papers around with me just in case! I wouldn’t recommend this to people with really dry skin though, as it can be a little drying.
True Match has a high SPF, which is good! But perhaps not if you’re wearing it on a night out, as there’s probably going to be a bit of flashback.
Loreal claims that this is ‘Super-blendable’. It is quite easy to blend in. I’ve been using my trusty Real Techniques Face Sponge, but it also applies really well with a brush or your fingers too! It does seem to settle quickly on my skin though, so you do have to blend it quite quickly. It’s also quite watery, but not so much that it’ll run off the back of your hand when you’re applying it.
Price-wise, it’s not the cheapest of high street foundations, but I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a good quality foundation on a budget.
If you fancy trying this, you can buy it from Boots for £9.99 by clicking here!
