Today I purchased L'Oréal True Match foundation. It wasn't an easy decision; I searched online for hours for foundation reviews and put a call out on Twitter for recommendations before heading straight for a L'Oréal make-up counter.
You see, my skin's been ridiculously oily of late (I'd like to put it down to a change of water following my move to Yorkshire a fortnight ago) and my usual cream-based pan stick foundation just isn't cutting it. With this in mind, I wanted a matte product that'd combat shine.
A very knowledgeable MUA in Sheffield's Meadowhall colour matched me to the shade 'Rose Ivory', the palest of the lot. I don't know about other fair skinned ladies, but I always struggle to find a foundation or concealer pale enough in the 'high street/drug store' end of the make-up market. But this one seems perfect; it blended into my jaw line like a dream. I'm looking forward to seeing how it fares after 8 hours' wear at work tomorrow...
A quick tip for you: L'Oréal's foundation products are currently £14 for 2 in Boots.
I also picked up the brand's Studio Secrets Primer, so I'm looking forward to giving that a go. And this nifty little gift set came free with my L'Oréal purchase. Not bad at all, eh?
