L'Oreal true match powder review

L’Oreal True match powder is a unique product that is designed to improve skin texture, be super blendable and match skin colour and tone. With 33 shades available there’s a powder bound to suit you and your skin tone.

The powder comes in a stylish compact with a mirror and a sponge applicator pad.

Typically I use a powder brush to apply powder over foundation or BB cream but you can use the sponge applicator if you want to literally just apply the powder and blend it into the skin.

The texture of the powder is really light, soft and finely milled so it isn’t too heavy on my skin. As the formula is oil free it’s suitable for people who suffer with acne or combination skin. I typically have quite a oily T-zone and felt this powder was really good in mattifying this.

The powder aims to ‘match’ to your skin tone and I felt it went maybe a little too light, but this may be because I couldn’t apply it as well with the sponge applicator.

If you have dry skin be sure to apply a good moisturiser beforehand or the powder may cling to dry patches and look cakey.

After applying my skin looked really smooth and almost porcelain like. I do think the shade I picked was probably too light for me and I looked almost ghost like – not the best look!

I give it 4/5 – purely because my skin looks so flawless.
