THOUGHTS:

Another lovely foundation release from L’Oreal in Australia, but sadly with an incredibly disappointing shade range again from what I can see. I had hoped they would learn from the Infallible Pro Glow Foundation launch that they would learn that foundation ranges need to far bigger than 8-10 to satisfy the diversity and range of skin tones of Australian consumers.

For me personally, this kind of gave me a negative impression of the foundation from the start as I was automatically disappointed because of the limited shade range.

The foundation however reminds me a lot of the L’Oreal True Match foundation which has a far more impressive shade range. This is a very dewy foundation and I personally don’t find it to be as long wearing as other L’Oreal foundations I’ve used previously on my skin.

PRO’S:

  • Comes with a pump attached.
  • Affordable and easily accesible.
  • Ideal for people with dry skin.
  • Gives a dewy appearance to the skin.
  • Buildable coverage.

CON’S:

  • Incredibly poor and disappointing shade range.
  • Not ideal for oily skin in my opinion.

VERDICT:

As you can probably tell from my ‘thoughts’ section, I was so disappointed with the shade range, and think it’s a shame that L’Oreal has not followed suit as so many different brands have lately and chose to be more inclusive in foundation shade ranges. I truly believe that the standard of shade ranges has stepped up so much in the past 2 years, and it is a shame to see such a major brand not being as inclusive as possible.

However, I personally love L’Oreal foundations and found that this gave me a really beautiful glow, but didn’t necessarily last as well as my L’Oreal True Match or Infallible Pro Glow (discontinued). The lack of shades has made me feel uncomfortable recommending this foundation as it so difficult for people to be able to try due to the limited shade range.

If you are an American consumer there at 30 shades advertised on the L’Oreal website which is more acceptable, and would be much easier to find an ideal shade. The shade ranges in the US also have different names so I’m not sure if the shades are comparable at all.

If you do want to try a L’Oreal foundation I would recommend the L’Oreal True Match foundation much more not only because of the shade range, but I prefer the longevity and general appearance more.
