L'OREAL Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup Foundation Review
Trying different makeup products from different brands is a must for us to find the best one that will cater to our needs. Although there are ingredients that are common in different cosmetics, let's all face the fact that not all makeup product are created equal.
In a product review that I wrote earlier this year, I have mentioned that I am still in search for the best foundation that will work for my skin. Take note that I do have a combination of dry/oily skin type. My t-zone area tends to get oily while the areas on my cheek tend to get dry. What I am actually looking for in a foundation is its ability to last long. Of course, other desirable qualities of a foundation are also a great bonus.
This month, I got to try L'OREAL Paris' True Match Super-Blendable Makeup Foundation. I have read a lot of positive reviews about the product and I have seen some of my favorite beauty gurus in Youtube using it which made me more excited to try the product. L'OREAL claims that the product is super-blendable and that it lasts long on the skin without making it look cakey. Who loves having a cakey foundation on their face? No one. Keeping that in mind, I've tried the product twice before scribbling my final thoughts on this review.
Everything that you need to know about the product is on its glass container. From the shade of the product, to its ingredients and manufacturing date, they're all in its container. Yes, it is in a glass container so you have to be very creful not to drop it or else, you'll beautify your floor instead of your face. lelz Seriously, just be careful with it ladies.
Nothing fancy about the packaging. It doesn't look cute like Korean beauty products. Nor does it look classy like the ones from other big cosmetics company. I do love fancy things but it doesn't mater so much for me. I laud L'OREAL for providing all the facts that their customers have to know when buying their product.
I foundation can be bought for 120.00 PHP that's a little over 13USD. A reasonable price for a face foundation. Perfect for working ladies and for makeup artists who are still building their makeup collection.
WHERE TO BUY
L'OREAL Paris True Match Super-Blendable Makeup Foundation is available on Watsons nationwide. It is also available in the beauty or body essentials section in some malls. If you cannot find it on those places, you can also get your hands on the product from reliable beauty shops online like BeautyMNL.
To apply my foundation, I also got a new face foundation brush from PRO STUDIO Beauty Exclusives. I got the one in color Baby Daisy. You know, I've been very curious how oval brushes work so I was stoked as well to try it.
Quick review: It does work. It is very compact, but I feel like I can work faster using the traditional liquid foundation brushes. I also do not have any idea how to clean it yet, so I still have to research how. It's also available in BeautyMNL.
Here's a before and after photo of my face using the foundation. As you can see, it doesn't have a dramatic effect on my face. It didn't do much to even out my skin tone. But, the good thing is that my face feels so smooth with the foundation.
Note:The photos are not editted. I haven't put on any other makeup products on my face as well when I took the photos.
So far, I don't have so many issues with the product other than it's a bit pricey considering its size and that it comes in a glass container. Moreover, it doesn't have an applicator so you have to figure out what works best for you in terms of applying the foundation. In my case, I just carefully let the product fall into my clean fingers and gradually apply it on my face.
