Throwback Drugstore Foundation | Review

Today’s post is a major #TBT, I bought a foundation I haven’t worn in years! The L’Oréal True Match Foundation.

I bought the shade W1 Porcelain. I like to start off with a really light base and build colour on top such as contour, bronzer, and blush. To be honest, right now all my foundations are just too dark. It’s that awkward time at the very end of winter when your skin hasn’t seen the sun in the longest amount of time possible, haha.

I’m loving this so much right now. I find it has a satin finish. Not too matte that it looks cakey or like a mask and definitely not dewy which is nice since I have oily skin.

Pardon my horrifically banged up nails, getting them done soon, I swear!

At $17.99 this is a great mid-range price for a foundation. I find this really easy to blend with a brush like the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (so reasonably priced and amazing). I’ve also applied this with fingers but I find the blending takes more time and it can streak if you aren’t careful.

 I’ve been reaching for this over my NARS Sheer Glow, so that ought to tell you something!
