Review: L'Oreal True Match Roll-On Foundation

Hello there!

Under the scope today is L'Oreal's True Match Roll-On Foundation.

Let me just tell you, I was super excited to try this one because I am a HUGE fan of the liquid foundation!! And the little roller is just so innovative I can't stand it.

Here is a picture of it next to my iPhone so you can see the size:

Pretty compact, nice packaging.

The application was very nice! Good finish, relatively little streaking (with easy blending), and the color worked well for me.

Left: with --- Right: without (which I hope didn't need to be explained, haha)

See! It covered pores and redness. So nice!

However, it did not wear well through the day. I have combination skin, and my face felt oily after a few hours, and it got cakey around my nose. Which has NEVER happened before. No good =( Thus, if you have oily skin at ALL do not even bother with this foundation.

It is a really neat idea, and might work for some people, but at around $12 I would definitely keep your receipt!! (Although, I'm not gonna lie, I am keeping mine to continue playing with even though it did not wear well.)

Have you tried this? What do you think? Will you try it?

Until next time~

  1. I have a hard time finding any foundation that works for combination skin! Looking forward to more reviews on foundations - for now...I just stick with powder! Would love to find something that covered redness, but didn't get oily!

  2. I think I have found my new favorite foundation-- before you get too much tanner than me we'll have to play, haha!!
