L'Oreal True Match Foundation | Review

When my everyday foundation started running low and #YoursTruly campaign rolled around, I was totally on board for trying out the L'Oreal True Match Foundation. 

The range consists of 23 (yes, I'm being serious!) affordable foundation shades suitable for warm, neutral and cool tones across the spectrum. This is huge considering that the high street foundation market is notorious for having a lack of shades to cater for all types of different skin tones. So when L'Oreal launched the new shades and paired it with a campaign and stories from '23 of the most influential and inspirational people in the UK', I was all over it.

After heading down to Boots and swatching to my heart's content, I decided to go for Shade 4.W, as modelled in the campaign by the lovely Amena, which turned out to be the perfect shade match for my skin! 

The foundation is light, fluid, buildable and blendable. It's everything I look for in a good foundation. I generally have normal to dry skin and I love that the True Match is non-cakey and doesn’t cling to dry patches. In terms of the coverage, I'd say that that this depends on what you're looking for from your foundation. The formula blends and builds very well, so whether you prefer a more sheer and natural look, or you'd like a fuller coverage, it's easy to achieve without the foundation looking cakey. 

Another observation that I had while using this foundation is that it has tiny flecks of gold sparkles within the formula. These help to give you an overall glow (without making your face look shiny), but they're very subtle and you can't see the specks of glitter when the foundation is on your face. Having 'that glow' is majorly on trend at the moment, so it's nice to see that L'Oreal have incorporated that into the formula.

In terms of price, the L'Oreal True Match Foundation retails at £9.99 and is easily available across the high streets and online in places like Boots and Superdrug. You can find it here.

Overall, I'm really impressed with this foundation and it's so nice to see a brand bringing out so many different shades to suit so many different skin tones. L'Oreal are celebrating diversity and I love them for that! 

Have you tried the True Match foundation yet? Did you find a shade that's right for you and did you enjoy using it? I'd love to know your thoughts!
