L'Oréal True Match Foundation Review

l'oreal true match foundation review

You all know me, like always I'm late to the party on trying a beauty product. L'Oréal's True Match foundation has been out for years now, so you've most probably tried it yourselves already. My most recent foundation was Urban Decays All Nighter - I did love it although it didn't do enough justice for my oily skin. Anyway, somebody recommended for me to try the L'Oréal brand for a new foundation. So, I headed into Boots and spent a little bit of time with a L'Oréal beauty advisor. We both eventually agreed on the True Match foundation, with the right shade for my skin tone. 

I bought it in the shade '2.N Vanilla' and honestly, it's the most perfect drugstore foundation shade I've found that matches my skin tone. The consistency is so watery and thin, but a little goes a long way with this product. It feels soft and very light on the skin too which I like. Who wants a foundation to feel and look heavy? It also blends really easily - you definitely don't need to worry about patchiness and dreadful lines. The coverage of True Match is pretty good, it doesn't show off my pores or cling to any dry areas either.

My oily skin and foundation don't usually get on that well. So, I put it to the test! Wearing L'Oréals True Match without primer shows my oily skin within 3-4 hours. Wearing True Match with primer doesn't show my oily skin until around 6-7 hours. Not bad. Overall, this is a great little product! I definitely recommend and it doesn't hurt your bank balance either. Have you tried a L'Oréal foundation before?


  1. yeah, I haven't tried it either. I might pick it up now as you said it works with oily skin too, I need that :)
