Description

With shades from cappuccino to ivory across warm, cool and neutral tones, this foundation is practically bespoke. "Work it in using your fingers - it gives an undetectable finish and fabulous coverage," says make-up maestro Lica Fensome.

For women in search of a perfectly natural complexion, L'Oréal Paris has invented True Match Super-Blendable Perfecting Foundation SPF 17, its first foundation that perfectly matches the colour and texture of your skin.

InStyle says: Makeup pro Gina Kane uses this foundation as a quick fix. “It’s sheer and light and no powder is required. Mix with moisturiser for dewy skin.”

Following research into the skin-tones of women from around the world, the L'Oréal Paris Laboratories have developed a unique palette of skin-true shades.

The result: Natural looking, skin-true colour without tide-marks and outstanding coverage without caking. Thanks to the presence of 3 light, non-greasy oils in the True Match formula, you can build up layers of coverage for a made-to-measure finish.

Directions

Put a tiny bit on your finger or a make-up sponge and massage into the required area until blended.

Matte finish not my favourite
Patchy for combo to dry skin.
Summary
I prefer their lumi range as this is matte finish. Quite patchy on my combo to dry skin. Good value. Pump top so no wastage and easy to use. Blends easily. Long wearing. Buildable medium coverage.

I received a sample of this new foundation from L'Oreal and thought it gave OK results that lasted my working day.

The colour blended well into my skin and gave a natural finish. It covered my blemishes without looking caked! It also absorbed well into my skin and felt light.

The product price is fair and although I think there are other products on the market that are better, they come at a steeper price.

Good results at a fair price. Well done L'Oreal!

Strongest points
it is easily blendable and appliable, it matches your skin tone well, it is very good :). the bottle lasts for ages, ive had it almost a year, used it pretty much every day (apart from holidays) and it still looks full.
Weakest points
it brings out the appearance of dry skin, so i would reccomend applying with a moisturiser.
Summary
matches skin tone well, brings out dryness of skin and lasts a long time.

I quite liked this foundation - my hubby said it made me look air-brushed!

User Reviews

Strongest points
Gives good coverage. Affordable.
Weakest points
Apply sparingly on well moisturized skin, otherwise the foundation will look too heavy. Not suitable if you prefer a light-reflective foundation.
Summary
A decent foundation that covers well, but not suitable for those with dry skin or deep lines and wrinkles.
