I’ve been using L’Oreal True Match Compact in the shade of Porcelain W1 for about a year now. It’s an excellent product to use after a bit of liquid foundation and helps to smooth everything out before you apply anything else. It can go freely all over your face, including your eyelids! This compact is priced reasonably, as well.
The compact itself has two flips; one for the product itself, and another underneath for the sponge and a small mirror. It has an elegant design to it overall, which is somewhat see-through, so you’ll know what shade you’re getting. There are multiple shades to choose from, so there is a shade for all skin tones;
- Buff Beige – N4
- Soft Sable – C6
- Classic Ivory – N2
- Sun Beige – W6
- Honey Beige – N6
- Light Ivory – W2
- Natural Beige – W4
- Natural Buff – N3
- Natural Ivory – C2
- Nude Beige – W3
- Porcelain – W1
- Sand Beige – W5
- Shell Beige – C4
- Soft Ivory – N1
The texture is not too bad, it has a light, fluffy feeling to it, and you don’t need too much of it. All you have to do is lightly dab the sponge into the compact and wipe it across your face. The smell of the product itself is not strong, either.
The largest pro for this product would be that it blends incredibly well with your skin, as long as you get the right shade for your skin tone. Another pro would be the fact that it has everything included, considering the mirror, and that the top is see through, so you can see the exact shade you will be buying. This product is also SPF 17!
The biggest, con, however, is that if you don’t get the right shade for your skin tone, it can make you look too pale or too dark. Therefore, you should always see if there is a tester product around to compare with, or ask a beautician if there is one in the store.
Overall, I would give this product an 8/10 score.
