I purchased this product on my recent vacation for something new to try.  I have a friend who uses it and swears by it.  Normally I use BareMinerals so I was skeptical about the quality after noting how inexpensive the L'Oreal Bare Naturale was compared to BE.

I am actually very happy with this product.  I tend to get red patches on my cheeks and chin and really didn't think this powder would cover them well.  Normally I use the BE Bisque to cover my red spots before putting on the foundation powder.  The L'Oreal did it all in one step -amazing! Now I can use the L'Oreal all on its own on days when I don't really want to do my face up.  That is so much simpler than the two step process I used to do!  Another amazing feat is that it lasts all day long!

Don't get me wrong I still love BareMinerals and will certainly continue to use it since it is so kind to my skin.  I actually think it improves my complexion so we shall see if the L'Oreal does the same.

Now for the negatives: This powder does not travel well.  After coming back from my holiday the powder was a messy sight which made it difficult to apply the first few days back.  Once I didn't have tons on top of the sifter life was good again.  I also thought the brush could be softer.  And lastly it would be nice if the brush were a little longer or perhaps retractable then it could reach the inside of the lid and I could swirl and tap like I do with BE products.

As far as colors, texture, etc., I like this product very much. I'm particularly pleased that it's a mineral make-up available at a drugstore for a reasonable price. But I've found the way it's packaged to be so inconvenient that I actually threw it out (hence only 3 stars). You're supposed to shake the powder out into the top, then dip the brush into it to apply. But I've found that it's very difficult to get the right amount of powder - always too much or too little - and I end up making a mess. After a while, it just wasn't worth it to me anymore. The packaging for Neutrogena's "mineral sheers" powder is much more user-friendly, and I recommend it highly. As for L'Oreal, I'd consider switching back if they changed the packaging, but as it is, I can't recommend it.

    Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

    I first tried this product a few years ago. Before this I had been using another Loréal liquid foundation. I really how it gave full coverage and covered my flaws but it was just too thick and in the summer it didn't stay too well because I have oily skin. So I decided to give it a try with another one of there products. I'm glad I did because I have used it since! What I love most is that it gives me a light and natural look. And it doesnt feel like I have a lb of make-up melting off my face in the summer. It blends very well with my skin tone, and covers my flaws such as my freckles(I personally dont enjoy) and covers my blemishes and the redness. It's easy to apply and has an Spf. If you are going for a more matte look and want something more pigmented this is also great to wear underneath to cover the blemishes! So either way this is a great product to have in my opinion. I even got my sister to start using it!

      I receive comments everyday I go out from someone new about how beautiful my skin looks.

      So it is a 2 part - I wash in the shower with ROC Microderm Pads (copper container) I use the day and night formulas face lotions along with the eye lotion in the squeeze tube (not) the pump.

      Then I put on my L'Oreal love it together

      ROC I have been using for approximately 10 years Love it. I am almost 48 in a few months and I still get late 30's early 40's can't beat that I'll take it.

      100% on both L'Oreal and ROC

      To messy and heavy for my face

      By 

      from Wesley Chapel, FL

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      I bought this product to help my face have a natural look and not look like I was wearing thick foundation. I use this after I put on all of my makeup and I found that this really helps if I lightly brush it over my completed eye makeup. It keeps my eye shadow looking great throughout the day and controls creasing. The powder is way too heavy for my entire face. It goes on too heavy and causes flaking under the eyes and chin area. I tried using a minimal amount on the brush that is included, but it seems to not blend well on my face.
      I know this is a loose powder and isn't the easiest to use and keep clean, but the cap comes off very easily and I find powder all over my makeup bag. I had to start leaving this out on the counter to avoid losing the product and causing a big mess. I only used this a few times and did not get the result I was hoping for so I stopped using it. I wouldn't recommend this product if you are looking for something to make your face look flawless and natural.

      disappointing

      By 

      from USA

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      This is a disappointing product from L'oreal. This mineral powder foundation is very poor quality, offers a cake-y, heavy coverage with a strange mix of glitter like bits and pieces, and the shades look orange on my skin. The built in brush of this product was cheaply made, whenever I use it bristles break loose from the head of the brush, and I have to keep picking off brush bristles from my face. The powder itself is very poor quality too. This finely milled powder has a mixture of glittery bits that decreases the value of this product considerably. This powder foundation is almost impossible to blend, meaning I get a cake face and strange, unnatural looking streaks on my face whenever I use it. The shades of this product never seem to be right for my skin, and I always look extra orange whenever I apply this product. All in all, this is a very poor quality, cheaply made product that was bad in all aspects. I don't recommend this product to anyone at all, and I urge you not to waste money on this product.

      Good but not for acne.

      By 

      from Las Vegas, NV

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      This is actually a really good product if you want to cover redness, light freckles, etc. I use this on days that my skin is doing pretty well and I am not breaking out too bad. It is a light coverage with the first layer but can be built up to a medium coverage. Light blemishes can be covered if you add a little extra in those spots. It is a very natural finish and does not make my face completely matte, which I love. It keeps my oily spots under control and does not clump up on my dry patches. This is the best to use in spring when it is not too rainy. It tends to sweat off in hot weather. The packaging is really convenient because the brush and product come together. It can get messy when you open it because the holes that the powder comes out of are quite large. I try to keep it up as much as possible so product does not come out of the holes and clump up. I wash the brush periodically because I am afraid that it being stored in the plastic container can breed germs from my face.

      I'll never use anything but L'Oreal True Match every again!

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      I can only find one really small issue with this product but so small that it doesn't affect my Overall 10 rating, and that's just that I think too much comes out into the holding compartment which sometimes causes a small mess. However, it's so light weight that even if it spills over a little it just dusts/blows right off. I love how soft it feels going on and how soft my skin feels while wearing it and even after I take it off. It literally improves my skin on every level. Solves age spots, uneven skin tone and dry or oily skin. Bare Minerals are known to be highly beneficial to the skin and I love L'Oreal Brand so put the two together and you have the perfect product! The packaging is attractive and innovative. It's perfect to take on-the-go and it never leaves my purse except when I'm using it. The built in brush is genius! Applies smoothly and evenly and its so easy that I don't even need a mirror to apply it. Great product all the way around!

      lightweight and gives me great coverage

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      I don't normally use mineral foundations but in this case I did because I left my makeup bag at home and my best friend had this so I used it. It was very lightweight and went all over my face giving me full coverage. It didn't feel heavy it felt very natural to my face. My face looked and felt really soft. I felt like my face could breathe and it blended in well with my skin tone. This is a great alternative if you don't want heavy coverage. After trying this Loreal true match natural mineral foundation I went to buy my own just to have. I use it sometimes when I want fast coverage like if I'm in a rush. I like how it still covers all my imperfections. It works just as well as the other brands and it makes my face look matte. It has spf 19 which is great because it protects against sun damage. I like how my face doesn't look oily. I definitely recommend this to anybody who likes light makeup but wants good coverage. It was affordable to buy it wasn't expensive and I purchased this foundation at my local drugstore.

      only kind i buy

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      This brand is a great brand about half of my excessively large makeup box that is filled with mostly makeup that I don't even use, is filled with loreal brand makeup. This stuff works great, I use the loreal BB cream and then this on top and it creates a very smooth and naturally looking effect that is very close to being flawless. And the best part about it is that even though its a powder its still pretty good and unlike other powders that stick all into one spot after putting on liquid foundation, this one doesn't. I can put this one on and not have to wait for my liquid foundation to dry either. Unlike most powder foundations, this one spreads evenly and flawlessly. I love this foundation, most of the time I just put it on in a rush in the mornings before work and it still manages to look like I took my time to do my makeup, and it pretty much smoothes itself out. Its one of my favorite must-buy products.

      Not for me.

      By 

      from USA

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      I really like L'Oreal True Match liquid foundation, so when I saw L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, there were a number things I did not like about this foundation. First of all, the design of the container was not very practical. It's a bit bulky for my purse. In terms of application, you put the foundation in the top and then use the brush, but then when you have to put the cap back on, the foundation gets all over. Plus, since it's loose powder, it got on my clothes and also in my purse.
      I didn't like the texture of the powder. It has a sort of "silky" feel to it, but not in a good way. It didn't really cling to my skin, and something about the ingredients made my face break out. I can't say the foundation itself is awful, but it definitely didn't work for me. Plus, the design of the container looks a lot more convenient to use than it actually is.

      Best powder foundation

      By

      Comments about L'Oreal True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation SPF 19:

      I have been using this product for several years now, and have never gone back to liquid foundation, nor spending ridiculous amounts of money on over-the-counter department store makeup. It easily matches my skin tone and covers imperfections very well, with the exception of any extreme redness one may experience with a breakout, but a little concealer put on before hand solves this easily. It easily lasts all day and I never have to reapply if I am going out after work. Since it is a powder, and not a liquid, this does not have any moisturizing benefits. Therefore, your skin must not be too dried out if you are going to use this product. I find that in the winter, when I tend to get dry skin, the makeup tends to show flakiness and some fine lines. A little lotion a few minutes before application fixes this for me, but this extra step may not work for everyone who are in a rush.
