Whoaaa! L'Oreal True Match now has cream foundation!? Giddy me! You all know how much I like cream foundation and I'm so ecstatic that my favorite drugstore brand of foundation finally came out with one! I've tried it for a a couple of days now and I'd say that for a first cream foundation, not bad, L'Oreal! True Match Genius is an affordable cream foundation that pretty much has everything I want in a foundation and that is good coverage, good quality, and a soft matte finish!
L'OREAL TRUE MATCH GENIUS G2 IN GOLDEN PORCELAIN
This 4-in-1 product aims to be your go to as it promises the following benefits in one handy compact: primer, foundation, concealer, and powder. Oil- free and features a gel base. It comes in 6 shades.
Product comes in a slim compact; I accidentally mistaken it as a powder foundation LOL and carelessly swiped on it. Maybe L'Oreal should at least say that it's cream somewhere in the packaging.
G2 Golden Porcelain is a warm beige shade with a yellow undertone; it's for medium to medium dark skin types. This cream foundation has a creamy consistency yet a whipped. light feel because it has a gel base instead of oil; it glides on smoothly, but tends to look streaky if not blended well so it must be applied and blended well layer by layer. It is unscented.

I wore no concealer (face and under eyes) prior to using the product; it pretty much performs the way I expect cream foundation to perform so I'm pretty happy with it! It also makes skin appear smoother and smooths out fine lines for a little; it sets into a powdery finish, but I don't think you can go out without setting it with powder; in Philippine heat, even powder makeup melts, what more un-powdered makeup!? As for the shade, G2 is a shade lighter on me so I just fix it with a bronzer or shade- matching powder.
Set with powder
If you have mild to semi- heavy scars, you can wear this product on its own; nice to know that this product has pretty good concealing capacity. I also like the fresh, matte finish it gives; it makes you look primped, but not too made up; best of all, it doesn't feel heavy and cakey because it is formulated without oil. Staying power is great even on combination oily-normal skin; even on a warm day, it doesn't feel 'thick' and can stay intact for hours. If you have dry skin, moisturize before usage because it is devoid of oil, the ingredient that makes cream foundation feel emollient.
Finally, there's a pretty affordable and pretty good cream foundation out there; L'Oreal True Match Genius is good for normal skin and great for oily skin because its powder finish will delay oil production longer.
