I’ve been a bit AWOL lately because of exams and my job-as I’m sure you could tell. Its been a week or so since my last post. Recently at walmart I decided to test out a few foundations that I’ve heard a lot of rave about.
This post is strictly about the L’OREAL true match lump cushion. I purchased shade W3. In mac foundations and concealer I wear an nw/nc 20-25. This review is strictly on the formula as I have oily skin so I won’t be the best test for how this product wears. As when I first put it on, I know its not a matte foundation at all, but it doesn’t dry and gives you that dewey feel to the skin. For dry skin I’m sure this is perfect for you, however not so much for oily skin. One bonus I would defiantly say for this, is that it doesn’t crease and when it goes on, sometimes foundations accentuate if you have dry spots and this one doesn’t at all. Its a medium coverage foundation. It can be build able and if you want just a light foundation, you can for sure choose the level of coverage with this. it blends out super easily. I used a damp beauty blender with this, and it went on so nicely and blended in perfectly with my skin making it look natural. I just wish they had a more mattifing one for oily skin. The formula is nice and creamy. I defiantly love how this foundation applies and gives you a natural look. Its very creamy and moisturizing. I had a bit of a breakout on the right side of my face, and after about 3 coats it covered it up without looking caky at all. I decided to try out this foundation without any concealer so I can just simply test out the foundation itself. I did although have to set it with a powder as I couldn’t stand the dewey feeling for very long.
Im absolutely involve with the packaging. I love the colours, and the mirror itself is fantastic. This would be a great foundation to use when traveling as its plastic and not glass like many others. I really don’t think it would break that easily.
The only downside about this foundation I would say is the price. Im from Canada, and it priced out at $16.95 for half an ounce. Most foundations are a full ounce. When you measure what the full ounce would be, its comparable to a cheaper high end foundation price. It would work out to be almost $40. Yes a little bit does go a long way as to get a light coverage, I just needed to dip my BB in once and it covered the whole cheek. For a more medium coverage doing this process twice sufficed.
