My Thoughts

I’ve worn TruBlend Matte Made several times now, each time with a different primer and different application method.

  • Too Faced Hangover Primer + Clarisonic Foundation Brush
  • COVERGIRL TruBlend Smoothing Primer + Real Techniques Beauty Sponge
  • COVERGIRL TruBlend Pore Minimizing Primer + Beauty Blender
  • COVERGIRL TruBlend Color Neutralizing Primer + Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush
  • COVERGIRL TruBlend Luminizing Primer + Real Techniques Beauty Sponge

TruBlend is a light to medium coverage foundation – it evens out my skin but does not cover up my acne scars. I noticed it did minimize my pores slightly but the real highlight for me is the longevity and shine control. I did my usual routine with applying my RCMA powder all over my face but I did not have to blot or re-powder my face throughout the day. I shared one of my wear tests on Instagram Stories – see under highlight “MAKEUP”. My t-zone gets oily within 2-3 hours of wearing most foundations but the shine was very minimal with TruBlend Matte Made. I was able to wear this up to 10 hours without having to re-powder/blot!

As far as longevity is concerned, I was SUPER impressed with how long this wore on my face. 10 hours in and my foundation was still going strong. It didn’t feel greasy at all – it was super comfortable and definitely up my alley since I’m one who prefers and light and medium coverage.

Favorite Application Method

From the five different ways I used this foundation, I have to say I prefer using a beauty sponge and a COVERGIRL primer. My favorite of the four was the Smoothing – I did notice a difference longevity and application wise compared to the Too Faced Hangover. The Color Neutralizing Primer is the one I’d pass on – it didn’t really do anything for me. As for the Luminizing and Pore Perfecting, I think they’re good but the Smoothing one was the real winner for me!
