L’Oréal True Match Foundation Review



I initially purchased the L’Oréal True Match foundation because Amelia Liana stated this was a pretty close dupe to the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. So before splurging on the real deal I firstly wanted to try whether this actually works with my skin and complexion. The True Match foundation comes in a plethora of colors and I find myself to be R2 C2 – Rose Vanilla. The consistency is quite runny and thin but it still provides great coverage. I would say it’s buildable from medium to full coverage and I only need one layer to achieve an even base. It leaves my skin looking dewy and natural, however I do tend to powder my T-zone, otherwise… grease lightening! Not so much the look I’m going for.

The smell is nice and doesn’t linger around for too long, which is always a plus in my books! It comes with a nice pump that is easy to dose and one pump easily covers my entire face. I apply it with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which does the job quite well. It hasn’t broken me out at all and does a small job at protecting my face with an SPF of 17.


Here you can see me with just the Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Cream in the first picture. The second picture is with one layer of the true Match foundation and last image is full face.

All in all I cannot say enough good things about this foundation. It’s light on the skin yet covers any irritations and offers great value for the mere price of 12 Euros. Now I do think I’m gonna have to hit up my local Giorgio Armani counter just so see how it compares and whether the Luminous Silk is really all that…


Have you tried it? I’d love to hear your thoughts before handing over my money.

    • Thank you, that’s very glamorous to hear haha! I would say it lasts a good 7-8 hours, but you might want to go in with powder in between just to make sure there’s no redness showing through. Thank you for commenting!

  3. Hi Maja! I have been wanting to try this for ages (I also have Amelia to blame) but I never got around to it. It looks fab on you and honestly, Luminous Silk is my favourite foundation of all times. It definitely lives up to its hype. One day you have to try it! 😉

  7. Great review. I didn’t know this was a Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation dupe. I just discovered this foundation yesterday when I looked for drugstore foundations for fair skin online. And I ordered it in the lightest color N1 on Amazon because the German drugstores don’t have such light colors (I hate that they don’t offer the lightest colors of almost any brand here in Germany, but they do this in America. I can’t understand it. I mean, many Germans have fair skin, what the heck?). Can’t wait to get it to see if I will like it as much as you did!
