Most Helpful Positive Review My one and only
I use the product on average everyday. I wear it to work,on dates,and for photo shoots.I love true match for many many reasons but here are just a few: whether im tanned due to our hot summers or lighter during the winter.I have a shade that fits my skin tone perfectly(soft Sable winter, nut brown summer). Another reason why I love this product is its blend ability. I apply it with a blush brush (I love the area of the brush), and when I blend it in its so smooth and leaves a barely there appearance for a more natural look. This is the ONLY foundation I use! !!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Easy to blend, natural look.
This is a very good product. I used it exclusivley for about 2 years and it is better than and comparable to high end foundations, particularly Prescriptives. However, foundation and powder is just that - foundation and powder. (Unless it is really cheap and orange colored - this kind should never be purchased under any circumstances) Most make-up can be used successfully with the following tips: 1. Avoid it if it is orange - no one is an orange color! 2. Know your undertone color - are you pink, yellow, or blue? If you know this, you will be able to pick a color that matches your skin much better. 3. Know your skin type and moisturize appropriatley - any and all foundation goes on better with moisturizer to help it blend. The trick is getting one that suits your skin type, and applying it in the areas that you need it. Oily skin - use a light oil free foundation. Dry skin - use a moisturizing lotion. Combo skin - use a normal lotion and avoid your t-zone, appying it to your dry areas only. Normal skin can use a regular lotion. Be sure to use lotions specifically formulated for your face! 4. At the risk of sounding trite - less is more! If you are under 50 with good/really nice skin, I would only use foundation/concealer in the areas that you need it and follow with a nice powder to cover everything. If you are 20 and under you may only need a quick sweep of powder or nothing at all. 5. Good skin care is an absolute must! If you have bad skin, nothing will help...build better skin upon a foundation (no pun intended) of a great cleansing regimen and then begin to use cosmetics to perfect your look: A. Gentle-soap free cleanser for dry to normal skin. B. Exfoliant with salytic acid for normal to oily and combo. C. Gentle toner for all skin - may need to dilute with water for sensitive skin or use diluted witch hazel. D. Good moisturizer. (I learned the above after much trial and error, and now my skin is in better shape than when I was a very young woman - and all I wear is a little foundation or concealer and powder all over to finish to. The secret to looking great and dewy faced everyday is great skin care and make-up in small doses! FYI - Price means nothing - L'Oreal is proof of that - I used very expensive make-up for years, only to learn that not taking care of my skin was the issue, not the make-up - your skin care regimen has EVERYTHING to do with how great you look.) Happy hunting everyone.

Always have problems matching my skin tone. This matches perfectly!
Surprise! I switched!
MissyB from Ohio
I use a lot of Lancôme products, including foundation and have for years. I decided to try the True Match under eye concealer because I did not have one I liked... and I loved the True Match so much I decided to try the foundation. It was also a success. It goes on pretty shear but leaves you looking polished. It has a decent SPF and feels very light. I was lucky enough to find a great match... alabaster — the lightest cool shade. If someone is really pale I wonder if they will find a good match because I did not consider my skin tone to be the palest of the pales. Anyway... I am switching to these True Match products —great products at great prices. Did I mention the under eye concealer is the first one I have tried that looks natural, does crease or cake and does the job? It is true. P.S. I am 64 and have pretty good clear skin with wrinkles that you would expect for 64 years.
This is my go to foundation
Vic from Cleveland, OH
I have been using this product for a couple of years. It was ridiculously easy to find my match. This is a good basic foundation. It is better or as good as some of the high end brands I have tried.
Not for me

My face is combo and it just made my texture look worse

Susan from CA
I've tried many brands, even very expensive foundations, this is the best and so reasonably priced.
My go to liquid foundation
Chloe from South Carolina
This is my favorite liquid foundation, even amongst high-end foundations that I have used. It has a light-to-medium coverage depending on how you build it up, and the finish is beautiful. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who wants full coverage, but for a nice wash of color, this certainly does the trick. I follow up with a NARS concealer for pesky spots and under eye.
My one and only!
curlylucy from Queens N.Y.
This foundation has become my one and only! After Urban decay discontinued their Naked formula I Luckily found the Loreal true match foundation. It definitely is true match! My skin looks flawless with this foundation. Please never discontinue this formula it's PERFECT!
I been using this for past 10 years and I love it!
Imelda from Rialto
It has high coverage with a very natural look and long wear.
I always come back to this foundation
Ever from Pennsylvania
I always return back to this foundation. It's affordable and looks great- looks like natural skin. The color options are fantastic especially since my color varies throughout the year such as being darker in summer and lighter in winter. I always try other more expensive high end foundations from time to time but I always return back to this one. I have sensitive skin and this is always the only foundation that never disrupts my skin or causes me breakouts or reactions. I've been using this foundation for over 6 years now.
Jocylin from Los Angeles
I really like this , it's not full coverage unless you build on it, but it's definitely medium coverage , I decided to try this as I needed a new foundation, picking out a skin tone is quite hard, I have more of olive looking skin and somehow I got the wrong skin tone which was a bummer so it caused me to return this, but I'll be getting a new color soon, super blendable I find it works better with a brush.
Lots of color options
Not2shabby from GR, MI
I have oily skin. Was hoping this would work for me but after 4 hours I'm an oily, shiny mess. It also is cakey after a few hours.
Holy grail and beginner friendly
Hotter than Potter from Charlotte
I love this foundation. my skin feels like skin, blends like dream with my beauty sponge. I dont mind it doesn't have a pump. love it's fragrance free and tons of shades! my only problem for me is it doesn't look as flawless under my current sunscreen routine.
My Holy Grail
PamPam from Tyler,TX
I absolutely love this foundation. Even after buying expensive brands.
Outperforms High End Foundations!
Kristen from Colorado
This is the only foundation I will ever buy and have yet to find one to top it. It matches my skin perfectly, doesn't clog my pores or cause me to break out like many foundations do. I have spent $40-$50 on foundation before and this one outperforms them all. My only minor complaint is the bottle doesn't have a pump so it can get messy trying to pour it out on the back of your hand.
The good and not as good

Loreal True match super bendable foundation
shop girl from Utah
wow!!!!! I have tried high end foundations, from clinique, Bare minerals, Wander beauty, and It cosmetics, and Loreal true match is amazing! it is blendable, and goes on so smooth, its buildable and doesn't cake. it's not super hydrating but its not too dry either its great for combination skin, dry and oily. if you have dry skin just make sure to moisturize before applying. the make up forever reboot foundation was becoming a favorite till I tried loreal true match. please don't discontinue this product, Im hesitant about drug store make up and this was a good impulse buy. im in love with how it looks.
Kiana from San Diego
I bought this foundation cause I was looking for a good drugstore one. I heard good stuff about this one, so I had high hopes. When I applied it, it was cakey and dried out my skin. Extremely disappointed, would not recommend.
great drugstore foundation
Susie from San Diego
I'm 49 years old with combination oily Tzone/normal skin. my undertone is golden/yellow
I'm nc30 in mac studio fix. I use W4 in true match. I can apply with brush, but best application is damp beauty sponge. foundation goes on smoothly and does not look cakey. best for combination skin in my opinion.

I would not recommend this product. I have fair skin and I chose a shade a little to light and I didn't feel like it had enough coverage other
Made my skin look super dry and textured

I tried using it with both a beauty blender and a brush. Both gave me super dry textured skin
This is my forever foundation!
Over 60 from ohio
I love that i finally found my shade.. hope i can do the same thing with lipstick soon.. however this foundation is a lifesaver for me.. as being over 60 i must have something .. it isnt too dark it isnt too light.. however the only gripe is i wish it had a pump and perhaps came in a larger size..
Blendable, light, compares to a CC cream
Dvndiva from Whittier, CA
I wanted something similar to IT CC cream and this does the job. It's creamy, so it's very blendable for my dry skin. I also liked that I found a perfect shade. It's lightweight and covers dark spots lightly and could be set with finishing powder. I wish it did have a pump for a more measured and clean use.
