L'oreal Paris True Match Foundation Review

Hello, hope you're all well! Recently I've been trying out a few raved about drug store products in the 'blogging world' in hope of discovering some new everyday staples and hopefully help you guys do the same!
I've been on the hunt for the perfect foundation for years now, and its safe to say its all down to trial and error. I have tried so many and am still yet to find THE ONE. However after seeing lots of reviews on L'oreals True Match foundation and the similarities it has to Mac's Studio Fix Fluid - which is an amazing foundation, I have given it a whirl.
At £9.99 its slightly more pricey for a drugstore foundation, as you get the usual 30ml of product. The bottle is glass and also has a pump which is always handy! Its also contains SPF 17 which is good for the skin... but flashback hell, therefore I would suggest staying away from flash photography when wearing this foundation!
I picked up the colour w4 Golden Natural which is perfect for my NC30 skin tone as it contains a yellow undertone. This foundation has a wide colour selection which is rare for a drugstore brand so everyone should find the perfect colour! The foundation also doesn't oxidise which is a bonus, no one wants an orange face!
Here I've swatched the foundation in natural light. The consistency is very light and runny, however still provides a medium/full coverage. The product is easily buildable in light layers to avoid the dreaded cake face. To apply I used the Real Techniques buffing brush and it applied flawlessly and is effortless to blend! I really like the matte finish this foundation provides without even being powdered however avoids looking dull and lifeless! I would 100% recommend this foundation to someone with oily skin as it may stick to dry patches, and also those who like a fuller coverage without feeling like you have loads of foundation on. This also lasts 8 hours once fully set with my Mac Prep & Prime Transparent Powder. Hope I helped and please let me know if you've tried this yourself! 


  1. Great review, I have oily skin so this would prob be good for me!
