I’m starting to think that I may be romanticising my love affair with L’Oreal Paris’ True Match Liquid Foundation a little. I search amazon on a daily basis for a bottle, often get a little sad about its discontinued status and with my last drop deposited the hunt for its replacement has never been hotter. Next on my list of possible dupes to try, test and match against my ticklist of why the True Match Liquid was so awesome (ridiculously long-lasting, good but natural looking coverage, and a balanced dewy/matte finish if you were wondering) is Innisfree’s Longwear Cover Cushion Foundation.*
