I'm always on the hunt for a good drugstore foundation for everyday use and I was starting to feel that my Revlon Colorstay felt a bit heavy for me at the moment.
I was watching a few videos about the L'oreal Lumi foundation and I did like the sound of it but some people were saying it didn't last very long. Then I heard about the True Match foundation which has a natural looking finish, not too matte and not too dewy.
I would say it has medium/buildable coverage and it feels light weight on the skin. It looks very natural and is a good colour match for my skin.
The good thing about these foundations is that they come in an amazing colour range. There are 22 different colours and they are split into groups of different skin tones, N, C and W. These stand for Neutral, Cool and Warm. Then they are also numbered 1 to 9. The system is a little like MAC's way of numbering their foundations. I'm NC 15 in MAC's Studio Sculpt and I'm N1 Ivory in L'oreal's True Match.
I think this it's really good for an affordable foundation to have such a good colour range. If you don't know what your skin tone is it might be good to try the different tones in the number you think you'd be. But you can also visit the L'oreal website and have a 'consultation' (click here). But I think you really need to try the colours on your face to really see what shade you should be.
It's quite a runny, liquidy consistency compared to something like Revlon Colorstay which is much thicker.
My only problem with this foundation is that it can settle into lines and creases in the face. Not a good look! So I try to avoid my 'smile line' area and my under eye area where it tends to crease a bit.
