Hi my loves!
This constant change in weather these past few weeks has had a traumatic effect on my skin! It was constantly dry and flaky at one point which was really frustrating, especially when I have to wear make-up most days as part of my job. It got to the point that none of my foundations looked nice on my skin anymore and seemed to highlight my drier areas which was definitely not what I wanted! I'd heard a lot of rave reviews about the L'oreal True Match foundation so I decided to give it a try, at just £9.99 I was really happy to oblige, especially as I got 2 for £12 as part of a deal Boots had on at the time.
This foundation is said to give a natural matte and luminous finish which is exactly what I look for in when it comes to foundation, it also claims to be highly creamy and have a silky texture which is also a bonus! This particular foundation is available in a range of 20 different shades so there should definitely be something for everyone, as part of the 2 for £12 deal I picked up shade N1 - Ivory and shade N5 - Sand (for reference).
The first time I tried this foundation I applied it with my Realtechniques buffing brush and I have to admit I didn't like the way it looked on my skin, it felt amazing to apply and blended out really well, I just thought it looked really thick and the brush strokes were clearly visible on my face, it also seemed to cling to my drier areas. Fast forward a few weeks and it's one of my staple products in my make-up kit, although it wasn't love at first sight, I've since realised that using a moisturiser or hydrating primer before application really works wonders! Also, applying the product with my Beautyblender made such a HUGE difference, I can no longer see the brush strokes on my skin and my face just looks amazing when I wear it, it also lasts all day with a setting powder applied over the top. I would say the coverage is medium but you can definitely build it up to your desired coverage, I find that I only have to apply one coat all around then go back in over my under-eye area to cover any dark circles to get the look I want!
Overall this is a really amazing foundation and it's quite hard to believe that it only costs £9.99. I've used high end foundations that haven't worked as well as this one! I definitely wasn't disappointed once I got over my initial dilemma and I'd HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who wants to try it out, it's available from Boots and anywhere else who stocks L'oreal so places like Asda, Tesco and Superdrug. Also, definitely keep your eye out for more Boots deals because you wouldn't want to miss the amazing offers they have on sometimes especially with brands like L'oreal, Maybelline, Rimmel and the like.
I hope you've all enjoyed this post and please let me know your thoughts down in the comment section whether you already own this product or if you've recently bought it. I'd love to hear what you think!
