Make Up And Hair (MUAH) - L'Oreal True Match Face Powder

by - November 27, 2012

I've been using Maybelline Clear Smooth face powder for some time now.  I actually bought twice already (check here).  I also tried Garnier before.  They're all nice, but I want something that is very light and sheer.

To try out a new brand, I chose L'Oreal.  Don't underestimate drugstore makeups!!  You can still find amazing and affordable products!

This is L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Powder in Natural Beige shade.  The original price is around 800, but it was on sale so I got it with 20% discount.  Yay!  Sometimes, you just have to wait when drugstore makeups go on sale.  

This shade is the 4th one from the lightest.  I was actually worried when the sales lady suggested that it's the right one for me because I don't want my face powder to be too light, but she was indeed, correct.  HAHA!

The packaging is simple, a gray container which shows you the actual product.  It also comes with a round sponge which is placed in another compartment with a mirror.  It's very handy.  I just hope that it will not break easily.  The print on the lid tends to be erased, but no big deal really.

Coverage is light, but it's buildable.  I noticed that the powder itself is very fine and as the name says, it's super blendable.  You won't have any problems applying it using the sponge or a brush.

As mentioned, the effect when applied is sheer.  With that, you can re-apply it anytime you want and it will still not give you that heavy feeling.  It also gives a matte finish, perfect for oily skin.  

When my skin gets a little bit greasy, it doesn't cake.  Love it!  It's very smooth when applied.  

I'm not sure if you can see it from the photo.... I love how pigmented it is.  The consistency of the powder is similar to cornstarch.  It won't give you that shimmery or dewy look.

I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and I can say that so far, it doesn't clog my pores.  I will do repurchase, but it has to be on sale again!   HAHA!  This product is really effective, but a bit pricey.

True Match line of L'Oreal offers a wide selection of shade, but only some are available here in the Philippines, maybe just the basic ones to match a Filipina's complexion too.  :P
