true match = Very bad foundation
Reviewed on August 20, 2015

Purchased true match brand from the New range in boots two weeks 4 days ago, as out of stock with my usual foundation, true match looked simalure to my usual foundation brand so tried it out, felt ok when applied and didn't have any problems with it for the first 4 days, then I started to notice a few red spots on my face and neck so thought it was my hormones from being due on ! After a few days it got a lot worse my face/ neck became pimply, itchy, sore and rashy, I have never had a problem with different foundations including my usual brand before so this is a first for me ! My face is still full of pimples, sore spots and rashes have not gone, very sore and not sure what to do, I would not recommend this product, very disappointed with the true match brand but not with boots.

Worst foundation EVER used! Terrible
Reviewed on July 22, 2015

The loreal true match foundation is the worst foundation I have ever applied on my face! None of it's official description is correct. It sinks into pores all over your face as soon as it is spread and I have very small pores to begin with. It does not set at all, it sits on the skin and feels tacky and cakey.

Even after letting it settle for five minutes, I lightly pressed my fingers against my face, and a decent amount of foundation transfers straight onto my fingertips! It is super sticky.

I use a flat top kabuki brunch to apply liquid foundations and when using this brush and foundation together, it leaves streaky lines across by face; even if I dab the foundation in, it still leaves little dots and bumps all over my face and does not leave a flawless finish at all! it does however, hide small imperfections but does not cover redness and it leave the top of small pimples open instead of covering them.

I'm summary, this is the worst foundation I have ever purchased, I would not repurchase this ever again, and for the price that is is ($30.00AU) I have many drugstore foundations half the price that are much much more effective! Very disappointed in this hyped product.

BROKE ME OUT TERRIBLY. terrible scarring, used two different occasions still broke me out.
Reviewed on July 12, 2015

My skin is very normal. not too oily not too dry, never really breaks out other than occasional blemish here and there. I first tried this foundation summer of 2014, I found a wonderful shade that worked perfect for me, the coverage stunned me and the finish was beautiful however after a while I started noticing clusters of acne forming on my cheeks. I didn't contribute it to the foundation because make up usually doesn't break me out, I thought it was just hormonal changes however I loved the foundation too much to stop using it to even see if this was the cause of the acne. My acne got worse and worse and I couldn't control it no matter how hard I tried, no product reduced my acne. and on top of the giant clusters of acne constantly covering my cheeks I had blue/purple/red/brown scars. the worst scarring I've had up to this time in my life. there be periods where my acne would shift to the upper sides of my cheeks and leave my middle alone and it still looked like I had acne because the scars were so bright. I continued using it until around December 2014 after my mom urged me to consider it the cause of the acne. within a week of stopping the use of it my skin cleared completely of any bumps all my acne faded, however I was left with the bright acne looking scars that I was very self conscious about. It is summer 2015 a year after I first started and about half a year after stopping I still have scarring however it has improved greatly, a couple of days ago I decided to give the foundation another go purely because I had truly enjoyed the finish and coverage and because I was curious if it had been a hormonal thing that caused my acne or this foundation, in a sense, I wanted closure. After two days of usage I already see acne forming on my cheeks. I stopped usage immediately and now for sure know this foundation is not for me. Sorry about the long testimony but please beware before trying this foundation. I loved it however I hated the way it left my skin In the end. I say try it, if you see break outs forming stop use immediately. all skin is different and this foundation was definitely not for me.

My Favorite Foundation for Sensitive Skin
Reviewed on July 2, 2015

I've had acne for 11 years, ever since I was 11 and in 5th grade. One of the hardest things for me to find was makeup because my face is very sensitive. I picked this up for the first time in January and I didn't expect much. I hate the feeling of foundation on my face and I'm very fair so finding my shade is also hard. I love this foundation more than any other foundation I've tried.


It has buildable coverage from sheer to full. Layer on small layers to cover acne and scars is much more natural looking than one thick glob.

I have found not just 1, but 3 different shades that work my fair skin

It doesn't make me oily or dry, it balances

Very easy to blend


The bottle is small and there is no pump therefore a lot of product get wasted and you have to buy a new bottle.

Overall I recommend this foundation. Just make sure you use proper skincare underneath and clean your sponges/brushes.

Causes Major Break outs!

I have never suffered acne before but on both sides of my cheeks after one week of using this foundation has caused mild - medium acne and it is so painful! Definitely try get this on special if you are trying this for the first time. :( Read fantastic reviews about this but unfortunately doesn't work for me. Remember everyones skin is different but this is my experience. :(

Good color match/quality for the price.
Reviewed on February 7, 2015

What I like about this line is there is a clear guide for finding your right shade. I use W6 and it is a pretty good match for my skin tone. The product is a tad on the watery side which I don't mind because this makes it easy to blend. I'm only giving it 4 stars because of the packaging. There is no pump so it's not easy to control the amount of product that pours out of the bottle. On the positive side, you only need a small amount (equivalent to 1 or 1 1/2 pump) to get up to medium coverage. It's buildable so add more on the spots where you need more coverage. It sets to a dewy finish so set it with powder if you prefer a matte appearance or if you have oily skin. Product quality and performance are pretty good for the price. Make sure you know your undertone (warm/cool/neutral) before buying. You might also try getting 2 shades to mix to find the perfect shade or to have a spectrum of shades to use as your color changes with the seasons.

True Match not as good as what everyone makes it out to be!
Reviewed on October 3, 2014

Okay so i bought this product about a year ago ( the bottle says its good for a year) but anyway at first it was lovely! Now i don't have a problem with acne or anything like that, but i do get spots here and there and i was told i have combination to oily skin. Yet this foundation lately has dried my skin out, any patch of my skin that was dry it stuck to! Plus i had Been washing my face like normal with a cleanser and toner and a moisturizer. Then when i applied the foundation after i had applied a prime, yet it brought out the dry areas on face which was mainly my t-zone, which i couldn't understand and to this day don't understand as my t-zone usually gets oily. So anyway what it has been doing is sticking to dry areas an making my face look really flakey and cakey, ive tried adding a bit more foundation and when i did that my face super oily ( more than normal) and the foundation moved and it looked patchy. I tried adding a bit less and it still showed dry areas. Although i will say this foundation did do well in matching my skin color and did an okay job at blending( when it wasn't making my face look unpleasant). To be honest I'm quite upset with this product as everybody raves about and at first it seemed it was working and doing its job, i did want it to work for my face and unfortunately it just doesn't. Also i use a high end products when i was washing my face with is Clairns, i also went to the body shop and they gave me a serum that helps out dry areas, i used this and then true match and it did help a bit but you could still see the dry areas a bit. Now this is how i know it defiantly does not work for me is that a few days ago i went and bought Rimmel Wake me up Foundation which is cheaper and didn't show any dry areas, as when i used this foundation i didn't have any and it made my t-zone oily which is how my t-zone had always been before the true match. So for me I'm unsure as to whether i spend another $30 and see if it does the same or if i spend less, $20 to be exact and get the Rimmel Foundation. I think i will be doing the reasonably option and spending my Money on Rimmel. I would give them product a 2/5 as lately it has looked unpleasant and made me feel quite insecure i was always trying to fix the foundation and nothing honestly really worked!

Quick Signs of Acne
Reviewed on August 28, 2014

I have recently bought this product. 2 days ago to be exact. And my first day I was taking it off when I saw and felt pimples and bumps and My goodness im rarely on of those people who have acne! So this is quite a new concept. I take great care of my skin, im not oily, I use a sponge not a brush. But this product does amazingly well in blending and it matches my color. The only reason I haven't thrown away this product is because well it cost money and it can hide the ance is created quite well but my god it hurts!

Love this

I have minor acne and lots of dryness and scarring from the Regimen. This is a great everyday foundation for me! It comes in so many shades which is amazing because I have very pale skin and the shade C2 Natural Ivory matches me flawlessly. It is light-medium coverage, so if you have strongly moderate or severe acne it probably won't cover enough for you, but on minor acne it is great. Not to mention it kept my dry patches at bay and stayed on all day. Definitely going to be buying this again!

I have oily, acne prone skin and even using the littlest amount of this like only one shake from the bottle makes me get horrible acne EVERYWHERE. My skin was mostly clear and I decided to use this (what an awful mistake) and broke out on my forehead and nose where I NEVER EVER break out and red pimples all over my cheeks and sides of my face. This is the only thing I changed in my routine. My face feels tingly after I wear this and I look in the mirror and my face is irritated. This is the only foundation that matches my skin color right now which is the only reason I use it when I have things to do. I Regret it EVERY SINGLE TIME. As soon as I buy a new foundation I will be THROWING THIS IN THE TRASH! This makes me oily as heck and has no coverage and somehow cakes around pimples and irritates skin, if you have oily acne prone and DEFINITELY sensitive skin do NOT waste your money on this garbage. :(
