L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Makeup W7 Caramel Beige

Have you ever wondered why a company after just nailing something suddenly withdraws a product? I keep wondering if they do it out of sadistic pleasure or they like shooting their own foot. Yes, that is precisely the case with L'Oreal Paris Philippines. About 1 and half years ago, I spotted these foundations from L'Oreal Paris and a very efficient SA helped me find my shade which was W7 Caramel Beige.

 Initially, I got it just our of curiosity since I was going through that phase of full face of makeup because my skin was in a nightmare stage. When I first applied full face, I was just taken aback! The shade was a tone tad deeper like I have tanned well. But everything else surprised me!

Price: 400 PHP ( around 550 INR) for 30 ml ( I think this has been withdrawn)

Let me try explaining how on multiple levels it was grand!

The texture is runny, very liquid. I took a little bit, a less than a pea size and dotted all over my face and then blended out with my flat top kabuki. The result was, my skin looked just like skin, only all the blemishes and dark spots vanished as if they were just photoshopped out! It felt like I was wearing nothing on my skin, but I was born with almost poreless, blemishless, spotless skin! And the foundation is so light that you wouldn't even know that it is there!

It neither makes the skin dewy, not matte. It just gives you gorgeous, smooth and supple-looking skin!

The staying power is impressive. I have worn it for about 8 to 10 hours by the time my T zone got oily in it's course and the foundation from top pf my nose faded. But a dab of facial tissue kind of put everything back in place.

Verdict: This, ( along with recently found The Body Shop Matte Clay Foundation) is the best foundation I have used so far in my life. I found the Body Shop one recently, but I exaggerate it not when I say I have been loving L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation for the last one and half years and this is the only one I have been reaching out for constantly. Yes, it is pretty much the only foundation I loved. That I can say.

Unfortunately, I don't see it in the L'oreal counters anymore. Instead, they have replaced with a new line of True Matches which did not impress me much.

Why, L'Oreal Paris, why? Why did you do this?

  1. It really sucks when you find your favourite product and the brand decides to get rid of it.
