In this day and age, drugstore beauty has definitely kicked up the quality factor with a slew of cutting-edge products designed to make the masses beautiful, on the cheap side. From lipstick to foundation, you can definitely find what you are looking for at your local Duane Reade, CVS, or Walmart. The only problem, figuring out which foundation shade is your perfect match. Enter technology, and L’Oreal True Match!
MatchMaker, by L’Oreal True Match is a new iPhone and iPad app designed to take all the guesswork out of finding your ideal foundation shade. To get your true match shade, it really is as simple as answering a few simple questions about your skin, and what colors look good on you. Once you have found your match, find out which celebrities wear your shade, what your undertones are, and even find out which stores in your area will have the foundation in stock.
After downloading the app to my own iPad, I discovered that my pale self was an impressive N1 (that’s neutral on the color temperature spectrum, and verrrry pale). My celebrity match is Claudia Schiffer, in case you were wondering. Later that day, I went to my nearest CVS to purchase the foundation and see what it was all about. So was I impressed with the results?
First, the foundation shade was indeed spot-on. The N1 Soft Ivory shade blended into my porcelain skin flawlessly, leaving nary a mark of blemish or discoloration. As for the wear, I definitely loved the feel of the foundation of my skin, and the soft dewy finish it afforded me. The liquid formulation was both comfortable and natural, and the SPF 17 was a huge plus for me when wearing this while running out and about. All in all, a huge thumbs up on both app and foundation for me.
Be sure to test drive the new Matchmaker app for iPhone and iPad, and then go out and test the new True Match foundation and tell me what you think.
True Match Matchmaker App allows you to find your precise True Match shade by determining your unique undertone and depth through a series of focused questions. Once you find your True Match shade you will be able to use the store locator feature to see which stores carry your shade as well as see who your celebrity undertone match is and get other product recommendations based on your unique shade!
