I am investing in good drugstore foundation. Since L'oreal Tue Match has been a topic of beauty bloggers in recent months, I have decided to try it for myself and see if it will work on my oily skin.
Anyway, I am still going to use this foundation specially during summer. And whenever I bought again a wrong shade of foundation in future (lighter) I can mix it with this foundation to achieve my perfect match.
Price: This is being sold at the L'oreal stall in malls for P600 pesos, but I bought this online for only P350.00 only + shipping fee. I saved almost 40% off the srp.
Packaging : The bottle is made of glass but not the fragile one. I mean it's not heavy. But you still have to be careful since it may broke once it fell off on you hands. It doesn't have a pump so be very careful in dispensing out the product.
Shade : Base on their website it has 33 shades available (from Cool, Warm and Neutral undertones). So that's a wide selection to choose from. I have the shade W6 but I do believe that the perfect match would be W3 or W4.
Texture : It's liquidy. That's all. hehe
Coverage : Light to Medium. It's very blendable and buildable. You can layer this foundation but I don't since it's a little bit sticky. It has SPF17 which is nice, and yes it doesn't give you white cast on pictures! It can cover minor blemishes, and pores are less visible.
Application : You can use any brush or tools that you want since the foundation is very blendable (very true to what it claims).
Longevity : 4-6 hours for oily skin like me. But if you have a good primer this might stay for up to 8 hours. Powder is needed since it doesn't claim to beat oiliness. It also transfer on tissues and clothing.

As you can see, it's darker than my skintone.
It also has micro shimmers, but it's not that visible when applied on face. I think the reason why they added shimmers is that, to make the skin glow. I think it suits those who have morena skin.
Comparison to my other foundation:

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation (0)
L'oreal True Match Foundation (W6)
Covergirl Outlast Foundation (842)
You have to wait for several minutes to let it set on your skin. Make sure to apply powder on top of it to set it specially if you have oily skin like mine. I still like this foundation, though it isn't smudge proof and it did not match my skintone, the blendability is what I really love about this foundation. Plus, it doesn't give you a white cast. Maybe if I got the perfect shade, I would definitely use this as my everday foundation at work. It will works best with dry skin.
