HGB :: L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Powder


Back when I was a makeup neophyte, I used this and only this as my face product and I ended up wondering time and again why I never looked like the cosmetic counter girls.

Okay, not that I aspire to look like cosmetic counter girls (their makeup looks extremely time-consuming and complex for the likes of me) but I did wish my face retained a modicum of their polish and professionalism. Back then, I truly thought a dusting of this stuff should and would give me my desired effect.

How naive I was!

I now know that L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Powder is actually the final step to a multi-step layering process, not the whole shebang. Once I figured that out, this powder became my best friend. After foundation and blush and mascara and lipstick, I take my handy-dandy Kabuki brush, swirl it on the compact and proceed to lightly dust my entire face, blending a bit more on the cheeks to make my blush look natural.

And I swear to you, my friends, that my makeup stays put.

All. Damn. Day.

Other reasons this little treasure has made my HGB list:

  1. super accessibility – As long as there’s a drugstore in the area, I know I will never be left wanting.
  2. vast color choices – This was actually a con rather than a pro since decisions are daunting for me. But once I cut my choices in half by determining that I’m a “cool” as opposed to “warm”, it was actually pretty simple to find my “true match”. (I’m a C2 – natural ivory, btw.)
  3. lovely price tag – $8 for a product that lasts me at least 3 months, if not more? Pshaw! That’s a no-brainer.

So really, you have no more excuses. Honestly! What are you waiting for? As if you needed a reason to go to Target…
