I'm back with another foundation review. I was very excited to see the drugstore come out with all this new makeup in January. The drugstore seems to be catching up to the matte makeup trend. They have all new matte lipsticks, lipstains, foundations, powder and even setting sprays! I was especially interested in the new L'oréal pro matte foundation. I picked one up in the shade closest to my skin tone and this is my review.
My shade is Caramel Beige.
So this foundation retails for about $19.99 CAD in drugstores which is pretty expensive for being a drugstore foundation. The foundation comes in a black squeeze tube packaging which I love! It is so convenient and easy and you won't waste foundation this way. The foundation is very matte! Like its no joke. The colour is a little too yellow for me but it applies really great. It sets pretty fast. The one thing I don't like about it is that it transfers so bad. So careful when you're hugging people because you will cover them in foundation. The foundation really controlled my oils througout the day and I got a good 10 hours of wear out of it before it started breaking up around my nose.
I would give this foundation a 7/10 overall. I dont like that it transfers and I think its a little pricey for the drugstore The colour selection is nice but a little too far on the yellow side. Other than that I really like the foundation and I will repurchase it!
Let me know if you've tried this or any of the new goodies at the drugstore!
