L'oréal True Match Foundation & Powder

It has took me a very long time to get round to trying these two! I've heard great things for years and my closest friend swears by this foundation. So of course when I was having a browse in Superdrug and saw the two for £12 on L'oréal, I took them up on that offer.
I think one of our biggest struggles as makeup lovers, is finding our perfect shade that actually matches! So of course L'oréal have twigged on to this and tried to create a range with warm and cooler shades that aim to match our skin tone and texture, hooray!

So how did I find L'oréal True Match Foundation? I loved the colour selection and found a pretty good match. When I first pumped some out onto my hand, I noticed it was pretty thin and more 'liquidey' than I'm used to. Because the texture is on the thinner side, I found it easier to blend and apply than other, more full coverage foundations. L'oréal are right by saying it's 'super-blendable' and a little goes a long way. I found this foundation to give me light/medium coverage that can be built up, which is perfect for everyday use, it feels light and non greasy on the skin but also evens out your skin tone. I would say this foundation can give you a flawless finish, but with the help of concealer and powder of course. I also love that it gives you that added sun protection with SPF 17. All in all I have loved using this foundation and I'm so happy I've found myself a new firm trusty favourite to add to my collection.

Now onto the powder, the powder is said to match perfectly to your skin and adjust to your tone just like the foundation. I normally use a translucent powder so I was a bit sceptical about this one I don't like to add a powder that may interfere with the shade of my foundation. What I love about this range is that they have a powder that pairs with your foundation, so it should be the perfect shade and not alter your foundation shade. 
I found this powder to be very soft and almost creamy to the touch, so it doesn't dry out your skin whilst giving that matte finish. It adds that little bit of extra coverage that I like from a powder to give you more of a flawless look and to even out your skin tone.
I've really enjoyed using this powder but I have only tried it with the foundation, for some reason I don't reach for this powder all the time. When using the True Match Foundation sometimes I will still go to my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte. Although I can probably see myself buying this again and I do love that it comes with a little mirror underneath!

I'm really enjoying using these two, they're perfect for everyday use and are so easy to use. I think I've found myself a new trusty pair and will most likely buy these two again. My skin is a little bit combination and I have a lot of scarring and redness to cover up and this really battles it for me. I recommend you give these two a go if you're looking for a natural finish with coverage.

Have you tried the L'oréal True Match range yet?
