Cheap & Cheerful: L'Oreal True Match Foundation in 1.5N Linen

Left: bare face; right: with True Match in 1.5N Linen
It's been a while since I fell in love with a high street foundation - I've been wearing MUFE Ultra HD Foundation and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue pretty solidly for the past few months, both of which cost more than £25 a pop.  Enter L'Oreal True Match Foundation - which costs a mere £9.99 and comes in 21 shades.

First off, the texture of this foundation is surprisingly refined for such a well priced foundation - it's silky, almost as silky as Armani's Maestro Foundation, and spreads very easily over the face.  I found that a whole pump is far too much - a half pump, or a little more if you really like to buff it into the face with a brush, will do just fine.  Once applied, the finish is very natural and velvety - it's not a true matte foundation, but it isn't dewy or shimmery either.  It wears well, too - I need a bit of powder on my t-zone after three hours, but otherwise it holds well for a full day.

Lovely, eh?  This is a foundation which definitely packs a punch bigger than its price tag.  Find it at Boots now.
