Hello! If you are a foundation junkie like me, then you know when you hear about new ones then you always want to try them out. For some reason, everytime a new drugstore one comes out I want to get my hands on it! Why? Because they are affordable and easily accessible rather than making a trip to sephora or placing an order online (I do love my high end ones but I try to savor them lol!).
So today I'm going to review the L'Oreal Pro-Matte Foundation! When I hear 'matte' in a foundation description, it sparks my interest because of my combo oily skin.
The packaging is nice. I prefer squeeze tube foundations (second to ones with a pump). They are easy to use and you don't have to dip your fingers inside.
The consistency is pretty thick. I got the second lightest shade and its a bit too dark for me. I think the lightest shade would be better but unfortunately I bought this at a store 30 mins away from me and don't really have the time or energy to drive all the way there just to return a foundation. I'm still using it though, and in summer time it will match better.
About this foundation
from l'oreals website
-This is indeed a very matte foundation. If you have dry skin, this is not for you.
-I do agree with the long wearing claims, but I have not tested out that 24 hour theory (who leaves their makeup on that long??)
-This is a medium-full coverage foundation. It covered most of my acne scaring, but I still used a Concealor on them too.
-I was a little skeptical on trying this because I have not liked other Loreal foundations that I tried before (true match, and true match lumi).
-I find this one a little bit hard to blend because it dried really fast. A damp beauty blender works best for me when applying it.
-I do really like this one, but I don't love it yet. I think that might be because I have the wrong shade though. It's a good drugstore foundation, and it doesn't irritate my skin! I still recommend trying this out if you were thinking about it!
A side note
I also tried out a new Covergirl one called Utlra Smooth. You might have see a picture of it on my Instagram. For those of you who are curious about that one, I did not like it so I won't be doing a full review. The two shades I tried didn't match my skin and the coverage wasn't good, not to mention it was like $16! I was really disappointed because I usually have good luck with Covergirl!
I do want to try the new Maybelline Fit me Matte & Poreless one though soon! Has anyone tried it?
Have you tried out this foundation yet? What's your favorite one from the drugstore?
