Wayhey! Way back in 2007 I told you I liked the L’oreal True Match liquid foundation. Fast forward to 2010 and I find myself test running the “new and improved” L’Oreal True Match liquid foundation now with Hyaluronic Acid. Truly, is there any product out there WITHOUT hyaluronic acid these days?!
As before, I’m N1 – Nude Ivory because I’m neutral and because I have a very light skintone. If you are warm, go for the W or G range and if you are cooler, go for the R range. Find out how to decide if you are warm or cool here.
Let me tell you first, what I feel is different between the old and new True Match liquid foundation:-
- The new formula is lighter
- The new formula seems to be a little sheerer
- The new formula is not so oily
The texture is light on my skin but it is sheer. If you like medium to full coverage you will not like this one. You can layer it, but it will make it look too thick. If you like sheer coverage like I do, you might like this.
I know what you’re wondering – does the Hyaluronic Acid make a difference to the product? Does it make my skin feel more moisturized since the function of hyaluronic acid is to retain moisture?
Truth be told, I cannot tell 😛
I don’t have it settling into any fine lines and I always dust a fine layer of loose powder over it to set. I don’t get oily throughout the day and it does not feel heavy on my skin nor does it dry it out.
Perhaps I’m just not the best person to tell you about the fact I like this liquid foundation, because I already liked the original formula way back in 2007, back when lots of people didn’t LOL…
Oh but here’s one thing I don’t like. I didn’t like the pump because it now feels and looks like flimsy foil covered plastic 😛 I don’t recall the old version looking or feeling like this. It felt sturdier.
Unlike many other people who have reviewed this product, I like the glass bottle the foundation comes in. It adds a level of luxury to a drugstore product and I don’t travel with liquid foundations and I always store my foundations in a box/organizer before, during and after use so I don’t have the threat of it taking a dive off my dressing table.
Oh and here’s something you might have missed – always shake the bottle before use. It mixes up the foundation so it comes out smoother. Otherwise its a bit goopy.
For RM52.90 (cheaper than before!) I think its a decent product but wait to get it during sales because L’Oreal goes on sale often. 🙂
Pros: Light sheer texture, Not heavy nor oily on the skin, Good colour match for me, I like the glass bottle
Cons: Pump feels flimsy and looks cheap, Sheer texture may not appeal to everyone
Have you tried this one or are you one of those for whom L’Oreal True Match did not work for? I know there are people who don’t like it 🙂
