Hey guys! I’ve been meaning to get this foundation since it came out but at first I couldn’t find it then when I could find it I couldn’t find it in my shade so I eventually gave up and figured as it became less popular I’d eventually get my hands on it. Well when me and Doug went to Walgreens looking for something completely different I spotted this foundation and they had one more left in my shade so logically I couldn’t pass it up 😉
It claims to be a 24hr wearing foundation that is Demi-matte, air light, and oil free. I’ve worn this once and I felt it was all the things listed above. Others have said it’s an intense matte not a Demi-matte but I feel it is a Demi-matte. The foundation blends smoothly and feels light and comfortable on the skin. When I wore this foundation I wore it later in the evening so by the time I was ready to take it off it had only been on for about 6 hours. I did start to look a little dewy but no breaking down or patchyness. I feel that this foundation is very nice for long days out but not wanting a heavy thick foundation.
Another thing I have noticed people complaining about with this foundation is that it sticks to dry spots on the skin so no one with dry skin can use it. I have combination skin where the T-zone is very oily but my nose and the edges of my face are very dry. I moisturize my face very well before I use any foundation and I’ve noticed that as long as I moisturize the skin it doesn’t cling to any dry patches that I have.
This foundation is definitely medium to full coverage and conceals all my redness and blemishes very well although when you first get product it is thiner than you would expect for medium to full coverage which is what makes it thin and air like on the skin. I did not feel I needed concealer after I applied this foundation. Personally I think it would begin to look too heavy if you layered concealer on top but obviously that is my personal preference.
The shade I found matched best is 102 shell beige. I will provide a before and after picture of this foundation below.
Overall I found this foundation is nice to wear, easy to apply, looks and feels nice on the skin, and I feel that a good array of skin types could get away with wearing his without it being uncomfortable and too matte. L’Oreal is one of my favorite brands at the drugstore and they rarely disappoint so I suggest if you see this at your local drugstore to give it a shot because I’m sure it won’t disappoint you.
