Saturday’s Little Beauty: L’Oréal True Match Foundation

main image


A couple of weeks ago I was getting my make up done for a shoot by Kate Mc Cormack. FYI Kate is an amazing make up artist, I came across her through Instagram during the summer and I’ve loved her since.

I was asking my usual 20 questions – I get my make up knowledge from all my professional friends 😉

I asked Kate what foundation should I try next, she straight away said L’Oréal True Match. I love trying new foundations, I have about 10 on the go. I had heard about this one but hadn’t purchased it yet.

Off I went to Boots. I went for shade ‘Rose Vanille’ it was €14.99. Great value and worth a shot I thought!

With high expectations the next morning I applied my new foundation (don’t you just love the feeling of a fresh new bottle? Or is that just me!!?)

My first impression was wow this is gliding on so smoothly and it’s so silky!


I applied a light layer at first. I was happy with how that looked for daytime. Then I went over it a little more, it blended into my skin perfectly, and it’s easily built to give a full coverage, which is great for nighttime or if you just like a good coverage in general.

It’s definitely the silkiest lightest feeling foundation I’ve ever used. It has great staying power too. I didn’t feel like I needed to top it up during the day. I’ve been using Maybelline Super Stay 24H powder over it- I really like that too. As always I use my Blank Canvas F20 flat buffer brush to apply the foundation (see a recent make up brush post here)

I’ve been using it ever since and I’m really so impressed. I think I’d go so far as to say I like it as much as one of my favourites, Armani luminous silk.


I am going to buy a slightly darker shade for nighttime though or for when I’m quite tanned.

So I’m dying to hear if you’re loving this too? Let me know below or on Facebook.

Please let me know what other beauty products you’d like to see me feature or test out for you?

Much love
