L'oreal True Match Foundation in W7 Golden Amber- Review, Photos, Swatches & FOTD!

Hey Gurls!
Its been quiet sometime now that I have been using this foundation & I think I should share my thoughts about it.

What L'oreal True Match Foundation says...

True Match Super-Blendable Makeup precisely matches your skin’s tone and texture and coordinates perfectly with True Match Powder, Blush and Concealer. Formulated with Precise Match Technology so you can control coverage and fine-tune it. Ultra-pure formula contains no oils, fragrances, or pore-clogging fillers, so all you see is beautiful, radiant, flawless skin.
Finish: Natural
SPF: 17
Coverage: Light to medium
Skin Type: For all skin types


Price: I had bought it for Rs 750/- but now its Rs 835/-

What I say...
This foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump dispenser. So you can control the amount you want. You can easily get from a mini dot to a full size of a pump.




I'm in the shade W7 Golden Amber. This shade suit me 10 on 10! It has golden shimmer in it which can be seen when applied on the face. It is a water based foundation which is great for oily skin like me. It is very easily bendable, you don't need to struggle hard to even it all over the skin. I just need 2 pumps to cover all my face & neck. It has a very good wear time on my oily skin too, it stays on me for around 6 hours without primer then it starts to fade away without making it patchy. Now that's a plus point! Surprisingly it doesn't leaves a white cast even thought it has SPF in it. It gives the perfect natural matte finish on my skin, it doesn't makes me look dead matte. During the winters it I wear it without a finishing powder, & during the hot days I use my L'oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder. It gives medium to full coverage without making the face look cakey. It can be worn as a sheer coverage foundation & it works good when mixed with a moisturiser too! It has no funny fragrance to it.

on me..

swatches..


Pros:
  • water based foundation
  • good packaging
  • very easily to blend
  • buildable
  • good wear time +6hrs
  • doesn't looks patchy when it wears off
  • no white cast even if it has SPF
  • has SPF
  • medium to full coverage
  • natural matte finish
  • great for combination/ oily skin
  • does not oxidizes 
  • will suit acne prone skin too
Cons:
  • can highlight dry patches & lines if you have dry skin
Verdict: Its a great foundation in a good price! & it the perfect match for my skin tone. If you have yellow/ warm undertones do check in this range you may find your match.  I highly suggest it to those with combination to oily skin.
I may repurchase this again if i don't find anything else similar to this..

Hope this review helped you! Have you tried L'oreal True Match Foundation yet?

Ben Nye Rouge Contour in 3- Review, Photos, FOTD

Hey Gurls!
Today Il be reviewing the a matte bronzer that I finally got after hunting for a very long time. Bronzing & contouring is a very important regime in my makeup routine.  It seems that brands in India don't launch matte bronzers or only bronzers infact! It always very difficult to find  a good bronzer. I know MAC has it... but at the same time I dint wanted to shell out that amount of cash. & then I came to know Ben Nye got launched in India & tadaaaaaa!!!! I knew I was getting this!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner- Review

Hey Gurls..
Today Il be reviewing a toner which most of us girls have used it! Its The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner. 

What It says..

This refreshing toner for blemished skin gives a beautifully matte, shine-free finish. Removes traces of make-up, cleanser and impurities Mattifying powders leave skin shine-free Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin
  • Removes traces of make-up, cleanser and impurities
  • Mattifying powders leave skin shine-free
  • Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin
FULL INGREDIENTS
Water, Alcohol Denat., Corn Starch Modified, Caprylyl Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Glycerin, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Allantoin, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Limonene, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, t-Butyl Alcohol, Citral, Leptospermum Petersonii (Lemon Tea Tree) Oil, Denatonium Benzoate, Tocopherol, Caramel, Yellow 5, Blue 1.

Price: Rs 620/-


What I say..
I have been using this since 4 months now. & A few more uses out of this & it will be empty.
this toner comes in the patent The Body Shop bottle. It smells exactly like the Tea Tree oil but a little less strong. It is a light green color toner & there is some product that stays on the bottom of the bottle so you have to shake it up & then pour some on a cotton pad/ ball.

I was liking it in the beginning. It deep clean my skin, makes it feel refreshed. I was amazed to see how much make up & dirt was still on my face after washing the face.
When used for the 1st time I had a burning sensation on my whole face especially near the nose where i always have dry & sensitive skin. It also makes my face hot.. literally. & also when I apply the moisturizer it stays hot for few more seconds. I had read after using it 2 -3 times it doesn't burns.. but mine still burns & tingles. It helped to remove the acne till a certain extent. Makes skin feel refreshed & tight, because of Alcohol!( I recently discovered) But it does not helps to clear the blemishes.
There is alot of product that they give & now my skin has become immune to it. I thought that it will become my HG toner but it dint work on me that well. Its is a good product over all but not a miracle product.

Pros:
  • cleans well
  • helps to clear acne till a certain extent
  • refreshes the skin
  • keeps me matte for 2-3 hours
  • will last for a very long time
  • shelf life of 3 years
Cons:
  • burns & irritates my skin
  • the smell may irritate some
  • expensive
  • not suitable for sensitive/dry skin
  • doesn't helps to fade blemishes
  • Doesn't prevents future break outs
Verdict: This is a hit or a miss product for some. They should come up a smaller size packaging too so that everyone may give it a try. I had thought this may work wonders for me! but it turned out Im not liking it so much!

Do let me know if you have tried this or liked it? & toner suggestions for oily/ acne prone skin required!!!
Hope this review helped you!
