I've been on the hunt for my holy grail foundation in what seems like forever. I've tried and tested many foundations from high end brands to drugstore brands, and there are many that I like but not many that I absolutely love. Some of my past favourites have been from Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier, EX1 and Maybelline. But as I said before, I haven't fallen in love with them and am always on the look out for a new one to try.

I've heard soooo many reviews on the L'Oreal True Match foundation recently as I know they've changed their formula and packaging to look more professional. I remember trying this out years and years ago, but I didn't have the right shade for my skin tone and at the time there weren't many shades in the range. However, since there has been so much positivity about the new formula, I was really eager to try it again. 

The shade range is now amazing, and I was able to be colour-matched in Boots to find my perfect shade which is W3 Golden Beige. It's only £9.99 as well which I think is a bargain for a good foundation, especially against the high-end prices! I also love the new packaging, it looks a lot more sleek and high-end compared to the previous appearance and makes the whole foundation look more luxurious.

When I first applied the foundation, I found that it was really easy to blend and sunk into my skin straight away, instead of sitting like a layer on the top of my skin like some other foundations do. The consistency is quite thin which meant I was really surprised to find it had good coverage. It's not very high coverage, but I like that for an everyday look, and if you wanted a higher coverage it's very build-able without being cake or sticky. I felt like it instantly made my skin look flawless, especially when applied with my beauty blender. This foundation is long lasting too which I've tried and tested by wearing it all day. 



My skin type is combination, and usually with other foundations, I have to either buy a very matte formula or powder regularly throughout the day. But with this product I didn't feel like it made my skin oily or shiny at all, which is also another bonus! All round I really rate this foundation highly, and I'm definitely going to continue using it. I wouldn't say that it's my new holy grail foundation because I haven't been using it for long enough, but it is definitely a contender!
