Foundation Haul- Revlon PhotoReady and L'Oréal Paris True Match

Hello guys, 
Today has been suck a poopy day! I have two lots of course work due in this Friday, which is done - just needs a few tweaks, but my teachers left the marked essays at home! Both of them! Two separate teachers! So now I'm left doing them tomorrow night and Thursday night, right on the deadline! Agh! I know it was just a accident but now I feel so pressured! 

But anyway, I decided to buy some different foundations as I'm sick of my MAC Studio Fix Fluid NC15 being to dark! I do use Max Factor Lasting Performance in shade 100 which matches great, but its getting so boring now! Due for a change I reckon.

I picked up these two foundation, on 3 for 2 in Boots -Damn Boots, I have no money left!!- and my first impression is that I really like them.

I got Revlon PhotoReady Makeup in 002 Vanilla and L'Oréal Paris True Match Foundation in Rose Ivory.

I have wanted to try these for a long time, but always ended up putting them back.

So far the colours seem very different, the PhotoReady being more yellowy and the True Match -as the colour name suggests- more pink. But personally I think they both look fine on my face... 

Top - PhotoReady
Bottom- True Match

The textures are also very different. The True Match is very runny and light, whereas the PhotoReady is thicker and stickier -but still easy to blend and work with, so its not a bad thing!

This is just my first impressions, so after a week I will do a full review as sometimes with 'drugstore' foundations I break out -which I do not need anymore off! 

I also cut myself a full fringe today! Its not really new to me, as for most of childhood life I had a full fringe but for the past few years I had a side fringe, today I was bored so it got the chop! Photos coming soon :P

I am also planning on doing a foundation collection/major comparison, would you like to see that?

Lastly have you used these foundations, did you like them? Tell me in the comments!!

  1. ah this is great! I've just ran out of my Covergirl foundation and want to try a new one, can't wait for the full review I have my eye on the True Match foundation! :)

    1. I will be doing to review soon! So far I really like it :) xx

  2. Hey Emily,

    I have used the True Match in the same exact color for years and was happy with it. I just recently changed to Estee Lauder Double Wear bc I wanted to try something new and I now like it more. True Match has really good coverage and is great, it just wasn't that good for my oily skin bc my nose got extremely shiny throughout the day.
    You could try mixing it with Photo Ready, I think you'd get a great result. I'm looking forward to your review.

    xoxo Elisabeth
