So the holy grail foundation that every beauty blogger and youtuber talks about, Loreal’s True Match Foundation, finally makes it’s way onto Why Hello Beauty. Icons such as Lauren Curtis, Chloe Morello and Nicole Guerriero have all talked about and praised this jar of liquid. I decided it was time to bite the bullet and join the gang!
I have been using this foundation in the shade Golden Ivory for over a month now, every day, and it’s time to give my thoughts. It’s a very good foundation but not the be all and end all of liquid bases.
It’s a very runny consistency (almost a BB cream consistency) and that is something I am not used to when it comes to foundations. Not that this is a bad thing, I am just not used to it. It is super easy to blend but does require a bit of extra time spent doing so. The previous foundation I used daily was Arbonne’s Perfecting Liquid Foundation and now I realise how much thicker of a liquid that was, barely any blending was needed in comparison. I also remember using Estee Lauder’s Double Wear’s foundation a few years back and that also was much thicker from memory.
I think it certainly needs a foundation brush to apply onto the skin, which I do myself otherwise it would sit on the skin noticeably. I find that my foundation brush from Sephora works best for blending with me.
At the moment, you can pick this base up at Priceline for just $20 AUD so for a drugstore/ chemist foundation, it’s pretty affordable.
If you use this foundation yourself I would love to know, how do you find it when it comes to taking up close and personal photos? Does it blur skin imperfections on camera? This is something I will continue to monitor and report back stat!
What are you using for your base currently, is it high end or drug store? Share with me in the comments!
