My Thoughts: L’Oreal True Match Foundation

After reading a million amazing reviews about the L’Oreal True Match Foundation, I decided to bite the bullet and get it a few weeks back. Despite already having three foundations on the go, I wanted to take the opportunity to properly put this to the test.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation


I bought the shade ‘N2 Vanilla’ which would be alright if I had a tan but at the moment it’s a little dark so I’m considering buying a shade lighter so I can either mix or just wear that one.

The formula blends so smoothly into the skin, creating a flawless base which doesn’t look cakey. I’d say this is definitely a medium to full coverage foundation and when I use this I don’t feel the need to use concealer as well. The finish appears matte on my skin and once topped up with my Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder it will easily last 5 to 6 hours on my skin without a primer no problemo.

One of the genius things about this foundation is the online consultation (take the test here) which will help you roughly find the right shade of foundation for you. It takes only a few minutes and will save you a lot of time in the shops! The foundation is available in a variety of shades ranging from warm to neutral to cool skin tones which helps you find your true match!

For those wondering here are the shades:

Warm: W1 (Golden Ivory), W2 (Golden Vanilla), W3 (Golden Beige), W4 (Golden Natural), W5 (Golden Sand), W7 (Golden Amber), W8 (Golden Cappuccino)

Neutral: N1 (Ivory), N2 (Vanilla), N3 (Creamy Beige), N4 (Beige), N5 (Sand), N6 (Honey), N6.5 (Caramel), N7 (Amber), N8 (Cappuccino), N9 (Cacao)

Cool: C1 (Rose Ivory), C2 (Rose Vanilla), C3 (Rose Beige), C5 (Rose Sand), C7 (Rose Amber)

I’ve really fallen head over heels with this foundation and I can’t recommend it enough for the price you pay.

Repurchase? Yes.
