I've had this foundation since last year but I never really got the time to review it. Today, I bring you L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Perfection Foundation.

The result: natural looking, skin-true colour, outstanding coverage with no caking.

|L'Oreal True Match Foundation -- before & after application|
Being a combination skin and my sister having an oily one, we were always on a hunt for a foundation that would suit us. Fortunately for us, we found this foundation. It's lightweight which is the best part. It gives a medium coverage which is buildable. For me, the consistency of this foundation is perfect. It's neither watery or thick. I quite agree to the part where they say it gives a natural looking finish - it does without caking on my skin. It has tiny shimmer in it but it doesn't show up on the skin.
This foundation has a thin consistency and blends nicely. I like to moisturize my skin before applying it. I say it's a summer foundation because it doesn't make me look shiny after a while. I have tried using it in winter and noticed that it terribly emphasized the dry patches on my skin so I avoid using it in winter. I think, this foundation would work best for people living in a hot and humid climate and have a combination to oily skin type. The lasting power isn't that bad, say for good five hours with a good face primer underneath but I am not pleased because it oxidizes on me. The thing that I don't like about it is that it transfers easily. You better set this foundation after application.
This foundation comes in a 30 ml pump bottle. It comes in a huge variety of shades to choose from. There are many yellow undertones which is a good thing if you're Asian. If you still go wrong with it, don't worry because it tends to adapt to the skin color to some extent.
I have two bottles of it. One is for my sister and the other for me. I sometimes like to mix both and apply.
You might like it if...
- You expect it to be blendable and buildable.
- You expect it to be light weight.
- You expect medium coverage
- You expect a decent lasting power.
- You are pleased with the wide range of shades.
- You have dry/normal skin. It emphasizes dryness and lines.
- You expect it not to transfer because it comes off/transfers easily.
- It oxidizes on you.
Overall, I think it's a decent foundation especially for combination/oily skin type and I like wearing it on daily basis. It's a bit pricey though. I think Combination/Oily skin types would like this one. I don't recommend this for dry/normal skin types. I suggest using a primer underneath for best results. It costs PKR 2200 and I purchased it from Agha's supermarket.
