I only bought the L’Orèal True Match Highlight last week. I featured it in my haul video here. But, I wanted to get a post up about it asap because I can’t really find much information on them. If I google the name, only American websites come up.
America seem to have three L’Orèal True Match Highlight (s) to choose from, I’ve only seen two of them on sale here in Boots. A bronze toned one and the one I have here 302.R/C ‘Icy Glow’.
The compact comes in a clear topped plastic casing with a mirror and a little brush underneath the product.
As you can see from looking at it (and the name) this is a icy, silvery highlight.
There is three facets to the powder. A beige toned shimmer. A blue toned shimmer. And then an silvery toned shimmer. Swatched they all look pretty similar though.
The compact is big enough that you could use the colours on their own. Or, you can of course mix them together.
Here it is swatched on my arm, with my finger on the left and then swiped on with the brush that comes with the compact on the right. Not the worst brush in the world, it would be handy for on the go. I myself would rather use a softer more tapered brush for highlighter though.
L’Orèal say they created their True Match Highlight to be used as a highlight on the general areas we would usually use one. i.e the cheekbones, or you can use it as an all over illuminator.
There is definitely a sparkle to this L’Orèal True Match Highlight. But, they are more reflective. It’s not just full on glitter. The powder itself is soft to the touch, but when use a a brush in it, there’s is a good amount of fall out.
I picked this up because the colour choices in it attracted me to it. (And L’Orèal were on 3 for 2 in Boots) 🙂 When you apply it to the face with a brush, you get a subtle icy highlight. If you’re looking for full on see you from space glow, this is not the product to do this.
Overall, I quite like the L’Orèal True Match Highlight. I like the duo chrome icy colour that you get with it. I don’t have a highlighter in my stash that looks like it. I don’t think it’s going to change the makeup game, but I like this particular shade and will get use out of it for sure for days when I just want a little something something on the cheeks 🙂 For me, it would be a bit too glittery to apply all over the face.
I believe I paid €11.99 for it in Boots. When it becomes available on their website I’ll be sure to link it.
