Is it good? Or can you recomend a better budget foundation? smile

I love it! Good coverage and easy to apply. Nice and light.

I am converted. Goes on so smoothly and the match is great. Huge saving for me as my usual foundation is £32 a bottle.

I really like it. Great choice of shades and goes on and lasts well.

Yeah I really like it. Good colour match.
Just as good is No7 Stay Perfect which is £14.50.

Plus great value when it is on 3 for 2 in Boots. I forgot my usual bottle on a weekend away and popped into boots and best impulse buy ever!

Thanks all smile well I called into my local boots but they had a choice of 4 shades, and none suited me. Will have to take a trip to a larger store.

Well I bought it in linen, which is a perfect colour match but it just doesn't work with me sad. It doesn't sink in, leaves dry patches and balls. I've tried leaving it a good while after applying moisturiser (aveeno). But it still happens, both my usual foundations I alternate with (rimmel insta flawless which is a tinted moisturiser, and benefit oxygen wow) sink in fine and leave no dry patches and never ball.

i love it, my favourite budget after years of wearing rimmel. spreads and blends so well.

Ooh I'm going to investigate this. My regular foundation has been discontinued and it cost £23 so a cheaper product that is getting a lot of love sounds too good to miss!

I couldn't get on with it either-too matte for me. My usual is borjouis healthy mix and I've been mixing the 2 together which works really well,the true match added to it means I don't have to powder. I wouldn't buy it again but I'm pleased I haven't had to waste it.

Thanks for the tip @retainertrainer I may try mixing it with the rimmel insta flawless, which only gives a hint of colour. The true match was the perfect colour but very dry? I'm not sure if that's how to describe it.
