~Review~ L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation in C6- Soft Sable

Friday, September 21, 2012

Hey Everyone!!

I have had L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation for over a month and I wanted make sure I had a good assessment of it before I bought before my RGBL Family.:)

I purchased mine at Wal-Mart because they had a variety of shades whereas some the drugstores in my area only had up to the  meduim light shades and none of the darker shades. Here's the thing with me and ANY True Match product: I've never found the right shade in their foundation for my skin tone. I basically eye-balled the shades in Wal-Mart and picked Soft Sable.

 The foundation is 1.0 fl. oz. and its a glass bottle with a pump. It has a clear plastic top but I think threw mine away. lol!
 Here's a swatch of Soft Sable on my hand. My hand is much darker than my face...I have that "car tan" on my left arm.
 Before applying the foundation.....
 After applying the foundation and setting it with clear translucent powder......


Pros:
-it's a light to medium coverage which gives me the option to go light or go almost full faced.
-it covered alot of the discoloration and scars on my face without extra concealer application. I was very impressed by that.
-the price was reasonable. I think I paid $8.99.
-blended well with a brush and with a sponge.

Cons:
-where is the "lumi"? I didn't see any illumination of my skin like a highlighter would do. I don't see that claim.
-some days I would wear it, and see a white overcast on my skin BEFORE I would apply any setting powder. I think that might have been the "Lumi" effect or maybe its the broad spectrum SPF 20 in the product.

Overall....

I really like L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation! Great buy with a range of coverage you can build. If you can find your perfect shade, its a great buy for a drugstore foundation.
