Here's my first liquid foundation review(as far as i know) for you guys,the L'oreal true match superblendable foundation with Hyaluronic Acid...MAN!!! thats a mouth full!!! this is their new reformulated formula by the way,i have this in R2(apricot ivory),and G6(golden caramel) which i think is their darkest foundation, at least that's what i saw on the counter
costs:900 something php(more or less around 20$)/30ml
This NEW foundation is the revamp of the existing formula with the addition of Ultra-Fine Enhancing Pigments to precisely match one's skin tone for a natural, even finish and luminous complexion. It is formulated with the various shades of Asian skin tone in mind and consists of 3 different groups of shades for Cool(R), Warm(G) and Neutral(N) skin tones. This new formula has included SPF17/PA++ as well as Vitamin C to protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV rays and free radicals.
Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful moisturizer for the skin and also is found naturally in abundance in the connective tissue of our skin. It has high water-retaining property hence is able to provide hydration for the skin up to 24 hours. Besides, it also has anti-free radical action and helps in cell repair by stimulating collagen synthesis.
the foundation is not runny as compared to revlon colorstay which is more watery in consistency.a half pump dispenses this much product.
my bare face(dont mind the white gunk on my nose,thats my moisturizer,did not noticed that it was still there haha)
with the foundation on.the name implies it,i did not had a hard time blending the foundation,this doesnt stick really fast on your skin like the revlon colorstay but for me it dries quite fast,even if its dry you can still blend it,or maybe its because of the powder like finish.
My shade is R2(apricot Ivory) looks a tad lighter on my face,but its not really noticeable plus makeup tends to oxidize on my oily face,this will give you a semi matte finish,with Medium coverage that is buildable,it feels light which is a great factor for me considering that this may give you a Medium-full coverage.
since i prefer matte finish i just dust it off with the Ellana Espresso Con Pana,it did not cake on me either,havent used any foundation that cakes on me probably because of my oily skin.?.
after 3 and a half hours of walking and running with lil r,through a crowded mall wide sale.it fades off..now dont get me wrong,this is a good foundation,its just that on the way to the mall i have to walk a block away,and its super hot!you know how unbelievably hot it is nowadays,plus togging lil r with me,i bet even the highest end of the foundation would melt.(most of you know how i sweat..).so i would say its lasting power is not that great but not really that bad either..
- Easy to Blend
