Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation for sensitive skin I react to lots of foundations (budget and expensive) and they tend to really dry my skin out. L'Oreal is great and I have never had a problem with it. Coverage is great and it feels really light. Target has great sales for this too, so I make sure I stock up. When my local stores were running low on my shade, I used click and collect for my online purchase. I received my SMS within 2 hours to say that my 40% off foundations were ready for pick-up. WINNING!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome makeup Great makeup! It feels lightweight and is silky upon application, however the coverage is great! I would definitely recommend this makeup and I will be buying it again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this foundation!  It's easily blendable, lasts all day, has medium coverage but it buildable to full coverage and feels quite nice on my skin.  I do have dry skin and I find that sometimes it can cling to any dry patches a bit which is why it only has 4 stars for me.  I love that it's matte and the colour is quite good for me. More shades in Australia would be good so that more people can use this foundation.  I have and will continue to use and recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the first foundations I have ever used. It has been reformulated probably a million times but still it’s great. No wonder so many women around the world like it. The variety of shades and undertones needs to be praised. The bottle with the pump? Check! The formula is rather on the runny side. It really matches the skin, the application is beautiful and easy, it doesn’t dry too quickly, it doesn’t get patchy, or doesn’t accentuate dry patches. The coverage is sheer to medium. It feels like on the skin, looks very natural, gives a glow and a healthy skin look. Very smoothing on the skin too. It’s unfortunately not the most long lasting foundation on the planet, definitely needs setting with some powder ( I recommend True Match!). I have got it in DW – Golden beige,great for summer when I rock a bit of a tan.\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This foundation has many things working for it - first off, shade wise, I'm a W3 and it's a perfect match for my light medium complexion. It matches it beautifully, and looks very natural as a result.  \n\nTexture wise, it's exactly how I like my foundations to feel on my skin. It gives medium to full coverage & works beautifully covering my redness & anything else I need to cover.\n\nI usually use a primer underneath, but can skip it with this foundation and still love the results. It feels really nice to apply, blends beautifully & then as a bonus lasts really well.  It honestly looks as good at dinner time as it did at breakfast.  No caking, bunching up, or flaky patches whatsoever.\n\nI've paid twice as much before for foundations I'm 1/2 as happy with - this is a true 5 star gem, highly recommended\n\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true gem, this foundation has become one of the most used in my makeup kit and I have repurchased many times. The shade range and the undertones are excellent and make it easy for everyone to find their “true match”. The formula wears wonderfully throughout the day, it is light, blends beautifully and looks like natural even toned skin without ever creasing or caking.  A true match made in heaven,  that I would recommend to anyone and everyone!!\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AH-MA-ZING!! This foundation is my new favourite foundation. It is definitely a dupe for Giorgio Armani's Luminious Silk Foundation which is 3 x the price! I was very skeptical to try it at first but am SO glad I did!! My skin is normal to oily and I don't need to powder my t-zone, it doesn't make my skin oily and doesn't grab to my drier patches around my mouth. It is super blendable (I have tried with fingers, brushes and beauty blender) the colour range is great and most importantly it still looks like your skin! It evens out my skin tone, gives me an amazing glow but doesn't look cakey. I would say it is a light to medium coverage but you can build it up if you are going out. So happy I tried this foundation and would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a nice glow, natural but evened out skin tone, super blendable and at a great price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely one of my favorite foundations. Beautiful flawless finish and very easy to blend and build coverage and the shade 1W seems to suit even the fairest of people nicely. The one downside is the micro shimmers in this foundation that make it unwearable in a situation where there are down lights, as your face will look like its covered in glitter. But in natural lighting/regular indoor lights this foundation is great.
Date published: 2016-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have bought so much of the foundation. Its super buildable and natural looking. I can wear it on its own with mascara or do a full makeup look and build it up for a fuller coverage. I am currently using a buffing brush to apply but it also works well with my beauty blender. I have combination skin and I don't think that it makes me look particularly oily or dry and really has a flawless finish. My holy grail foundation!
Date published: 2016-10-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is one of my go-to foundations! It has a light and thin consistency and you can layer it on depending on how much coverage you want and it doesnt look or feel cakey! It has a dewy finish and natural look and makes your face look flawless. This foundation is ideal for everyday wear as it's light and it lasts for a whole day! They also have a great colour range and I find this perfectly suit my complexion!  
Date published: 2016-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite drugstore foundation and one of my all time favourite foundations in general! Provides medium to full coverage. Dewy to satin finish. Works well on my oily combo skin and would be suitable for all skin types. The colour selection is limited in Australia but the range is about to expand. This is also a dupe for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and photographs beautifully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have very pale skin so I have a lot of trouble finding a foundation that is light enough for my skin tone, after spending hundreds of dollars and ending up with heaps of foundation bottles that are still 3/4 full, I finally decided to try this foundation, and I love it!\nIt's blends into the skin really nicely, doesn't clog pores, lasts for hours and is so lightweight that you forget your wearing foundation.\nIf you use your fingers to blend it then it's light cover, if you use a beauty blender then its medium coverage. A great thing about it is that you can build your coverage without it looking cakey.\n\nPros:\nGreat coverage \nNot cakey\nLightweight\nDoesn't clog pores\nLasts for hours\nGreat range of colours \nVery smooth texture \nDoesn't need primer underneath \nDoesn't need powder on top (if you want a more matte look then use powder on top)\n\nI would definitely recommend this foundation!\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Switched to this 3 months ago, love it. Very smooth on the skin and matches perfectly. There really are so many variations in skin tone.
Date published: 2018-12-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I find this foundation to be lightweight and easy to blend.  I love that it has a pump bottle and it disperses just the right amount.  I have dry skin and find that this doesn't make my skin feel cakey or patchy at all.  It's long lasting.  I feel like I could've gone a shade darker, however it blends so well that it does look like a good match anyway.  
Date published: 2017-09-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was quite disappointed with this product. I definitely found that I was able to find a good match with my skin, which is the foremost claim of the product. However, beyond that there is not much else that I liked about it. I found that it very visibly stuck to the dry patches on my skin, and that it did not last very well throughout the day.\n
Date published: 2017-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the flawless, blendable finish of this foundation! It does really match your skin tone well and is easy to apply and stays put for quite a while. A lot of product does come out for one pump, so if you are after a more natural finish I would only recommend a half pump at a time paired with a good finishing powder. 
Date published: 2016-06-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great coverage, love the texture.  It is easy to work with and blend. The only downside is that I get a lot of shine, I have combination skin, and my oily t-zone is shiny by mid morning,  I have to blot several times a day.  Probably better for normal - dry complexion. 
Date published: 2017-02-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This products has great coverage This foundation has great coverage and blends out really well. Only downside is the lightest colour is just a little bit dark for me as I’m very fair but everything else is amazing, including affordability! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good colour adaption but light coverage I don’t use foundation often so when I do I want something that look natural and adapts to your skin tone without that “cakey” look. I wasn't sure which colour to get at first but in the end got the vanilla rose as my skin tone is more on the cool side. I did think it looked quite pink in the bottle so was a bit worried at first but it blended quite well and adapted to my skin tone. I don't think this is a medium coverage personally I would steer more towards it being light coverage than medium. To get more of a medium coverage you do need to apply a fair bit and reapply. Initially I applied this with a foundation brush and it was a bit hard to blend- made my skin look a lot “whiter” initially but after a few minutes it adapted to my skin tone and didn’t look as pale. Overall its coverage is ok and it does last quite a while but I think it should be specified “light” coverage not medium as I did not find it covered much but only evened out my skin more than covering up anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No matter how many times I try a new foundation, whether that be drugstore, high end, or even intensely recommended, I always, always come back to this one. My skin is not flawless to say the least, in fact there are many ongoing issues between my skin and I. I have acne scarring on my cheeks, complexion reminiscent of an A4 sheet of copy paper, and an extremely oily nose. I have the L'Oreal True Match foundation in the shade Golden Ivory. There are quite a few shades to choose from and with both pink and yellow undertones. I use the foundation both day and night after using concealer to cover my scars, not that this foundation doesn't cover them well, but I just like a smoother base. I haven't noticed the foundation oxidizing on my skin or that dreaded white 'flashback' in photos, I am so happy to announce that this foundation did cause me to break out, which believe me, is a rarity. I apply the foundation with a damp sponge and dab it all over, then set with any powder. It doesn't settle into my scars or fade over the course of the day or night.\nI have been using this foundation forever, and while the packaging and formula have recently changed I am still so happy to call this my go to foundation and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
Date published: 2016-11-17
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I usually like most L’Oréal foundations,some more than others, however I am not a fan of this foundation. \n \nFirstly, the great thing about this product is the vast array of shades available with both pink and yellow undertones,which is great to see as a lot of foundations have a limited range. This means that it is significantly easier to find a shade to match your skin tone. \n \nThe downsides to this foundation are that it is very heavy on the skin. You can feel it sitting on your face and it gives a very cakey finish. This product is a matte finish but can be quite drying on the skin which not good especially for people with a dry complexion.\n \nThe wear on this foundation is not great either and after a couple of hours it can become flaky and tends to sit in any creases or lines on the face. \n \nThe benefit of this foundation is that itis good at covering any redness on the face and inconsistencies to skin tone because it is a full coverage product.\n \nI personally would not recommend this foundation as I feel that there are many other drugstore products, even L’Oréalfoundations which perform better than this one. However, I have seen people for which this foundation really works for so it is possible that it just doesn't work for my complexion. I would suggest getting a sample to try before buying a full size of the product so you can see if it works for you.\n

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can always count on L'oreal to have an amazing shade range to suit pretty much all skin shades. I've always got a couple of bottles of True Match in my makeup bag. I swing between 3-4 shades and from neutral to warm from winter through to summer and buy both my lightest shade and darkest shade and mix the two when in between seasons (usually use 3W and 6.5W). I love their golden/warm shades that match my skin perfectly in summer when I start to get tanned.\n\nLove the rich, creamy formula. It is easy to apply (I use my fingers), blends really well and is very lightweight on the skin. I also love mixing it into my daily moisturiser for DIY BB cream when I don't need much coverage, or layer it for evening. It leaves a natural, dewy finish so matte girls look elsewhere! It's got very very subtle shimmery particles in it which I personally love, and it photographs really well, giving a glow without any disco ball effect. I get a lot of compliments on my skin when I wear this, as it gives me that perfect skin look without looking as though I have makeup on. The price is fantastic for the quality.\n\nThe only thing is the packaging isn't the best - I find that the lid comes off easily and can (and does) leak in the bag. Also in summer, I have to use this with either a setting spray or a light brush of powder to keep it looking fresher for longer. Without these, it tends to look a bit oily on my T-zone by the end of the day.\n\nHighly recommended.\n\n

How To:
Festival Makeup with Noni Smith

The unicorn beauty trend might be getting lots of festival traction these days, but let’s not forget about the magical creature that kickstarted this whole otherworldly extravaganza in the first place – mermaids! If you’ve been looking for a way to bring a little blue makeup back into your life, you have come to the right place. Just in time for festival season, L’Oreal Paris Makeup Director Noni Smith has dreamed up a fantastic aqua mermaid makeup look that’ll give the unicorn trend a run for its money.

What you’ll need:

- Infallible Metallic Paint Eyeshadow in Diamond 
- Infallible Paint Eyeshadow in Eternal White 
- La Petite Mini Eyeshadow Palette Optimist 
- Infallible Gel Liner in I’ve Got The Blue target="_blank" rel="noopener" 
- Infallible Gel Liner in Vava Voum 
- Paradise Kajal Liner
- L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Mascara 

STEP 1: CREATE YOUR BASE 

Apply the teal shade from La Petite Mini Eyeshadow Palette Optimist to your lid, buffing the edges out so colour is visible when the eye is open. Layer a darker shade along the lash line, softening the edges.

STEP 2: BLUE FLAMES
Outline the flame pattern using Infallible Gel Liner in I’ve Got The Blue and Vava Voum, creating contrast between the darker and lighter colours. Use the dark blue to lift the outer corners of the eyes and the light blue to draw attention to the brow bone.

STEP 3: LINE YOUR EYES

Define your eyes with a thin line of Paradise Kajal Liner on your upper and lower lash lines. Extend the upper lash line outwards into a slight wing.

STEP 4: SPARKLE TIME

Using a mix of Infallible Paint Eyeshadow, add depth and drama to your eye makeup. Open up the inner corners with a dash of Eternal White shimmer and add two downward streaks of Infinite Blue on your lower lash line. Lend your lids some extra sparkle with Diamond and Infinite Blue.

STEP 5: LASH DRAMA
Grab your Volume Million Mascara and coat your bottom lashes before moving on to the top. Voila!

Autumn Makeup:
Trends To Try

It's a shame to bid farewell to summer, but fortunately with each new season comes a bevy of new trends and colour palettes to play with. Now's the time to embrace plummy lipsticks, metallic finishes and sumptuous shadows. Discover all the makeup inspiration you need with our top picks for the season.

Moody Eyes
Autumn heralds the return of golden leaves, grey skies and... smokey eyes. Whether it's a creamy latte shade or a rich burgundy, there's something inherently flattering about deeper hues.
Layer burgundy into your crease and blend in some espresso shade drama with the La Petite Palettes in Nudist, creating the perfect autumn eye look.

Sculpted Brows
Nothing says sophistication like a perfectly arched brow. Perfect yours in a flash with Unbelieva’brow, our latest long-wear brow gel with a dual-ended brush.
Fill and sculpt with the angled brush, then comb through with the spoolie for a natural finish. A major perk of the product is that it's waterproof, smudge-proof and budge-proof... and lasts up to two days!

Cat Eyes
Make a statement this season with a bold winged eyeliner. Not only does this look turn heads, it helps make your eyes appear bigger.
If you have a love-hate relationship with the glossy ink, Flash Cat Eye Liner may be your new BFF. With the detachable stencil, you get the perfect wing every time. No more smudges, shaky lines, or uneven flicks.

Lush Lips

With the rest of your look bringing the drama, it's time to pare it back on the lipstick front. Perfect your pout with a swatch of blush nude - we recommend Incessant Russet or Invincible Sable from our Infallible 2-Step collection.

Summer Beauty 101:
5 Summer Beauty Fixes

As much as we love summer, the sweltering heat brings on a whole host of beauty concerns. As well as melting makeup and out-of-control frizz, it tends to be the season in which skin problems flare up. Think oily spots, blackheads, sunburn and more. But summer is too fun to spend time stressing. Simply add these products to your beauty arsenal and address your beauty woes in style.

PROBLEM 1:
Fretting over the frizz
SOLUTION:
The heat has gone to your head—literally—and now your dry strands are soaking up moisture from humid air, causing them to swell and frizz. Grab our Botanicals Reparative Camelina Smoothing Frizz Antidote, which nourishes and protects hair with Camelina and Coconut Oil whilst taming rebellious fly-aways. Adding a weekly intensive treatment to your hair routine like the Camelina Smoothing Mask will also keep your locks hydrated.

PROBLEM 2:
Blemishes be gone
SOLUTION:
Heat and humidity in summer tend to wreak havoc leaving skin congested with dirt, oil and sunscreen. Use our Pure Clay Red Algae Exfoliating Face Scrub to clear away dead skin cells and refine pores. Salicylic acid and pure clay will draw out impurities leaving skin feeling renewed.

PROBLEM 3:
Shiny, not so happy
SOLUTION:
It’s steaming up outside and your sweat glands are in overdrive, making your complexion super slick. Look for formulas labelled ‘oil-free’, ‘mattifying’ or ‘anti-shine’ to nix any sheen and help your makeup stay put for longer. Also, choose a matte finish foundation, such as Infallible Matte 24HR to avoid a shiny summer complexion.

PROBLEM 4:
Desert dryness
SOLUTION:
UV exposure, air-con and dry heat all make for a very parched complexion. Hyaluronic Acid is the critical ingredient you need to make skin plump and radiant once again. Although it sounds complicated, the body actually makes it naturally already, though as we get older this slows down. Our Revitalift range with Hyaluronic Acid will boost and reboot skin to get that youthful glow back.

PROBLEM 5: Can’t tan, won’t tan
SOLUTION: The goody two shoes among us will know, sun damaged skin is an absolute no-no. Not only is there a serious risk of skin cancer but the sun is also incredibly ageing. So, it’s time to up the ante on your SPF each and every day with our Revitalift SPF15 Day Cream. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out on a suntan either. Back to Bronze will have you glowing like you’ve just arrived back from holiday.
