L'Oreal True Match Foundation Review

L'Oreal True Match Foundation - Beauty by Farzana

L'Oreal True Match Foundation was my first highstreet (drugstore) foundation.  I usually shy away from buying foundation from the highstreet, because I always think I'll end up with a wrong colour and wasted money.

My sister was raved and raved about this, so I caved and got it in the shade N6 Honey.  It's a really good match to my skin which surprised me, as I always find highstreet brands have poor shade collection for foundations.

Initially, I really didn't like it as I found it to be quite runny and felt it made my skin too greasy.  I was a little disappointed, but wanted to finish it off so persevered on.  

I was using too much product because it was so runny.  So I tried using less product and really buffing it into my skin using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush.  This made it better, although around mid-day, it would still get quite shiny. The real difference I saw was when I used it with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (review coming soon!).  IT was as if I had no foundation on but gave me the coverage I was looking for.  I absolutely adore this foundation now, because it just makes my skin glow!  Not in a greasy, oily kind of way, but a luminous glow.  It's a build-able foundation with medium to full coverage.  If you mix it with your moisturiser, it can be really sheer too due to its runny texture.

Amelia from Liana Beauty described this as a dupe of the famous Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, which has been on my wishlist forever!  If you're interested the GA foundation but unsure, give this a try first as it's a fraction of the price!

This has been gracing my face everyday as the colour is such a good match and the texture is si light that sometimes I forget I have any makeup on!

L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation is available at Boots for £9.99.

Have you tried any L'Oreal foundations?  What's your favourite?
