Loreal La Poudre True Match Foundation Review

Loreal La Poudre True Match FoundationYup, I’m really back on the blogging scene and here’s a review of the Loreal La Poudre True Match Foundation. If you could still remember, I got it from Luxola.sg which is now Sephora.ph during their last Boxing Day sale. You can read my Luxola Boxing Day Sale haul if you would like to. ๐Ÿ™‚


I got the shade N4 Nude Beige is way too light for me considering that I got a few shades darker because it’s summer so I just set it with a darker powder. It’s a two-way foundation so I decided to apply it with a wet sponge hoping for a better coverage because I’ve got some pimple marks currently. Sadly, it’s coverage is only light to medium even when you layer it up. You have to be careful in layering because it has a tendency to be cakey. So I guess it’s just formulated to be a light coverage foundation especially made for someone with oily skin but doesn’t have blemishes.

Having said that it’s too light for me and it doesn’t cover much of my imperfections, I just make sure to apply a layer on my face then set it with a darker powder that still offers a bit of coverage for a more natural-looking skin. You can also use cream concealers underneath too but since it’s summer and it’s usually too hot for me to be bothered with a concealer, I just rely on a darker powder instead. And also, isn’t summer all about natural-looking skin? ๐Ÿ˜‰

The L’oreal La Poudre True Match Foundation may not be the best one, coverage wise but boy can it withstand the crazy hot and humid weather in the Philippines! It does mattify the face and it keeps my oils at bay for hours! Note that I have a really really oily skin right now.

Here’s my selfie wearing the Loreal Super-Moist-Keep Powder Foundation under natural-lightning. Please don’t blame me for taking selfies for face shots because I have no expensive lightning materials at home so please bear with me ’till I get a decent indoor lightning. Anyway, as you can see my pimple marks are still peeking through and my skin still looks natural.

Here’s another selfie inside a supermarket after 6hours of running errands and doing groceries. Will you please ignore Earvin, he’s very very persistent to be included in the photo. lol. Back to the foundation review, as you can see I still look decent and not that haggard. Theย L’oreal La Poudre True Match Foundation managed to withstand the crazy hot weather and has managed to keep my oils at bay. Notice that I’m just a bit oily around my nose? Well, normally I’d get super duper oily around my t-zone.

I’d say that theย L’oreal La Poudre True Match Foundation is the perfect summer foundation because it offers light coverage while keeping oils at bay and managing to stay and not melt away even if it’s crazy hot and humid. I would recommend this to everyone with oily skin, believe me, you must get it this summer.

Since it doesn’t offer much coverage, this will still come in handy as a setting powder during colder months if you have oily skin. I don’t recommend this to those with dry skin though as this could dry your skin out even more.

    I tend to be on the dry side and usually stay away from drug store foundations and powders. I don't think I've ever found one that hasn't irritated me. :o(

    Good to know about this product. I have combination skin, and need lot's of moisture around my cheeks, I can see this drying them out evern more. At least it worked for your skin!

    I have tried a couple of BB creams that I know will work well on someone with dry skin. I have written a review about them if you want to give them a read! ๐Ÿ™‚
