Say Hello to Flawless skin in seconds, with the New True Match Blur Cream. This is a lightweight, non-greasy skin primer that has concentrated light reflectors that instantly blurs away pores and fine lines for smoother, more even-looking skin - the perfect base for the foundation.
Let me start with the consistency. The new True Match is a bit more runny and liquidy. Aside from the fact that it has shimmers, this foundation is lightweight. One of the lightest in my vanity kit right now. When I first tried it, it reminded me of Chanel Vitalumiere foundation but a bit heavier. Surprisingly, despite the light consistency, the coverage is really good. It has a light to medium coverage that is very buildable. With one layer, it can cancel out the redness on my face and immediately evens out my skin tone. I love how it gives my face a soft focus effect making it look seamless and airbrush but very natural. I find it perfect for day time wear and everyday makeup due to its consistency and coverage. With its good coverage, I suggest applying a maximum of two layers to cover up the entire face and to avoid caking. As for blendability, it is very easy to apply and blend. I can either use synthetic brushes or fingers in applying this foundation. It did not highlight my dry patches and psoriasis. As you can see on the photo below, it even covered up my white patches and reddish patches on the forehead (guttate psoriasis). The staying power is good and it is best to set it with a powder to prevent the foundation from melting. I can not attest if this oily or not because I have dry skin but I did notice that I need to touch up on my forehead and nose every after a few hours whenever I use this foundation. It did not irritate my skin nor did it break me out.
** for the under eyes, I use the L'oreal True Match Crayon Concealer in W4-5
Please do note that I have acidic skin so I used slightly lighter shade of foundation.
Overall, this is a good lightweight foundation perfect for everyday wear. The shade selection is very nice (they have 10 shades I think) thus, you can definitely find your true match whether you have cool, warm or neutral tones. It gives off a very natural soft focus finish. On top of everything, it only costs 600 pesos! This drusgtore foundation is definitely a steal.
