L’oreal True Match Genius 4-in-1 Foundation Review

Thursday, February 18th 2016 0

Primer, concealer, foundation and powder

For every day of February, I'll be reviewing a different complexion product.

Day 18: L’Oreal True Match Genius 4 in 1 foundation

Level of coverage

Medium to full depending on how much you apply.

Finish 

Despite going on as a cream, this transforms to a matte texture and leaves a velvet finish.

Longevity 

This lasts really well through the day, but keep it to hand to touch up if you don’t wish to set it with powder.

Techniques that you might need to know

The Genius compact comes with a little sponge for application, but to be honest I don’t find that this gives the best finish. Instead, use a buffing foundation brush (anything from Real Techniques will be perfect) to give a more well-blended finish.

You’ll like this if…  

–You like something handbag friendly

–You struggle to find a perfect match in foundation shades

–You have fine lines or pores and usually use a primer to smooth out the texture of the skin

Avoid if…

I can’t think of anyone that would need to avoid this, it is a really universal formula. I’d just suggest that oily skin types set this with a powder.

Products that work well with this 

The True Match blushers are lovely – really easy to blend and scented!

L'Oreal True Match Genius

Everything else I need to tell you

True Match is one of my favourite high street foundation ranges. You’ll find that the L’Oreal Paris brand in general offers slightly cheaper alternatives to some of their sister brands’ classics – for example if you like YSL’s Touche Eclait foundation you’ll probably like the original True Match fluid.

All housed in a slim case, you get the blendable formula of a liquid with the ease of carrying a compact.

If I had to describe this foundation in one sentence…

A multi-purpose matte concealer and foundation, portable for your handbag and all at an affordable price.

L’Oreal True Match Genius Foundation costs £12.99 and is available nationwide.
