Well, on one of my most recent trips to wal-mart I was checking out the cosmetics section and I saw the L'oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup Setup and I decided to color-match myself just for fun. The instructions for color matching your foundation is to pull a card they have up to your wrist and whichever little square disappears into your skin is your match. I pulled out the card and voila one of the colors disappeared completely.
I checked out the bottle and the color was super dark, I always figured I was a lighter complexioned girl. But then again, I had never used foundation before in my life. Well my match was to N4 Buff Beige or W6 Beige Chamois and according to Temptalia's Foundation Matrix I am an NC 40 in MAC.
What? Could it be?
Completely intrigued by this strange match I decided to pick up the foundation.
So what do I think about it?
I am in LOVE!
The foundation was a perfect match to my skin. tone. The foundation blends like a dream on my face and covers pretty well. My favorite way to wear this foundation.is with my tapered duo fibre brush from Sigma F15.
It gives me light to medium coverage and gives me a dewy look without looking overly shiny. I've been using it for about a month now and it hasn't made me break out just yet. It doesn't really cake up unless you apply an excess amount.
As for the bad things about this foundation, since it is so blendable it tends to transfer off of my face and onto my clothing after sweating. I sweat on a daily basis since I live in Puerto Rico and it is pretty humid over here. Also when sweating it beads up and is really noticable that I am wearing foundation which kind of defeats the purpose right? Although it tends to transfer when sweaty I can tell it's long lasting because it lasts all day on the back of my hand after I apply it.
I will continue to use it while we get into the cooler months praying that it won't transfer as much once the weather cools down.
L'oreal has a great range of 24 shades currently available, in warm, cool and neutral undertones. They make the color matching simple. Also it doesn't contain oils or fragrances. Also it has an SPF of 17 and moisturizers including Glycerin and Vitamins B and E.
