L’Oréal Paris True Match Foundation

I’m pretty sure that I’ve already lamented this here somewhere, but I’ve been having trouble finding a foundation that I like since moving to Abu Dhabi. Estee Lauder Double Wear was my go-to before, but it was too heavy for the hot, humid weather and it was just sliding off of my face. I then changed to CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua – which is a really light, water based foundation and even though I liked it at first and it did stay on I just felt that I needed more coverage. Enter L’Oréal True Match Foundation.

L’Oréal True Match is one of those foundations that I had heard a lot about but I just never got around to trying it. So, I’m pretty late to the party on this one. I’ve heard its also a dupe for the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. A few weeks ago I got so fed up with my CHANEL foundation that I marched into Boots in Abu Dhabi (yes, we have a Boots!) and bought True Match in 1.C Ivory Rose. I can definitely see why it’s the top rated drug store foundations. For me it really ticks most if not all of my requirements when it comes to a base. It has a medium to full coverage thats very buildable. It has a natural finish to it – not too matte, not too dewy. It comes in so many different shades that they even have one perfect for my ghost-like skin. It’s reasonably priced and widely available. It comes with a pump which I love because I have been driven mad by foundations that you have to pour out-so annoying and messy! And most importantly it lasts.
I can see myself sticking with True Match for the foreseeable future. I’ve sworn off spending big money on foundations until I’m back home because I’ve wasted so much money on foundations that do not last on me out in the Middle East. Although the new NARS Matte foundation does look pretty amazing…
