Recently, i was reading a lot of reviews about the new formulation of the Loreal True Match foundation and all of them are positive. So in this post i will compare both formulas and explain why i don't like the reformulation..
I ran out of my original formula of the Loreal True Match and i went out to repurchase since i really loved it, however i didn't realise that the formula was changed, only the packaging hence the same name. This is why i'm doing this blog post along with the thousands of other beauty bloggers doing the same thing, but i'm warning people with oily skin that this is not the foundation for you!! Let me explain..
These are two very different foundation and i really wish that they still had the old formula available (hence it was an extremely popular and well loved foundation) and release the new one as a seperate product along side the old one too. 

The Old Formula:
1. Had much more coverage (medium to full) than the new one
2. Suitable for most skin types such as oily skin
3. Didn't cake up if you wanted to achieve a more higher coverage and when powdering
4. It stayed on for much longer throughout the day (as for oily skin)
5. I think the colour range wasn't as good as the one now

The New Formula:
1. It's much more sheer and light to medium coverage
2. Definitely not good for oily skin - it contains gold shimmer flexes (see photo above), now don't get me wrong this looks amazing on normal skin in the warmer months but it just doesnt work well with oily skin
3. It's dewy and very lighweight (almost watery) and radiant. It feels like a BB Cream as for the consistency and the coverage
4. The packaging is gorgeous - it looks so sophisiticated, high end and quite sleek. The bottle is also much more taller which makes it better for storage
5. It tends to cake up if you want to get more coverage out of it and then powder throughout the day if you have oily skin

The Similarities:
1. They both offer a Spf of 17
2. Both are really blendable
3. 30ml bottles

 To conclude all of this, I really really wish that I can still buy that foundation.
