L'Oreal True Match Foundation review TheFuss.co.ukL’Oreal True Match Foundation is easily one of the standout drugstore foundations; it has excellent coverage, an incredible shade range and wears really well on the skin. If you haven’t tried this foundation before, it’s definitely one to consider for flawless looking skin.

For ten years this  foundation's formula was the same,  but thanks to the rise of BB and CC Creams, people expect more from their foundation. Rather than just bluring imperfections, we want them to fix them too. To celebrate the ten-year milestone of this standout drugstore foundation the formula was given a few tweaks.

The updated True Match Foundation is designed with pigments that help to promote a natural and glowing complexion. It's designed to feel more comfortable on the skin with advanced hydration replenishment, and added oils give the foundation a better blend and look on the skin too.

The foundation has a silky texture, with a matte luminous finish, the coverage is definitely more medium-to-full, starting off medium with a buildable base that doesn’t look cakey at all. It’s the perfect everyday foundation.

One of the big reasons this is such a standout drugstore foundation is the sheer amount of shades that are available, with 28 shades available to buy on Boots, there is something for every skin tone with varying undertones and foundation shades to ensure your finished look isn't too ashy or too orange either.

The L'Oreal True Match Foundation comes in varying shades, which are grouped into different undertones, these are Warm, Neutral and Cool.

The foundation lasts well, but for those with drier skin it might start to highlight any dry patches you might have. Ensure your skin is hydrated adequately before you apply this foundation, and a hydrating primer probably won't go amiss either to ensure everything is smoothed out and your foundation lasts that little bit longer too.
