Get the Complete Look…

A month back I had to attend the wedding of a close relative. At that time I realized that for the makeup to be perfect, I needed a perfect makeup base. This is a daunting task as the perfect makeup base includes primer concealer foundation as well as the powder to be applied in a proper way. Otherwise it might lead to an uneven complexion thereby spoiling the complete look.

The Perfect Makeup Base

While searching for that “perfect makeup base” I scouted through the various brands in the market. This itself is a time consuming process. But I came across L’Oreal Paris true match genius 4 in 1 R1 Rose Ivory product which claims to be a 4 in one product. Further it claims to act as a primer concealer foundation. I quickly bought a shade matching my skin tone. The shade which I bought is Rose Ivory that is R1.

After using this product for more than a month on various occasions, I am in a position to write my experiences and observations about it.
What the Product Claims

To give smooth feel to the skin like a primer for a never before velvety finish
Glides and unifies like a fluid foundation for ultra gliding texture
Covers imperfection like a concealer for a 100% flawless skin
Finishes like a powder for 12 hr lasting perfection

Directions for use

The product has to be applied on a clean and moisturized face
It has to be applied with the applicator
Start it from your forehead and on the temple of cheeks and blend it
Continue to blend it evenly to get a perfect finish

My Experience With The Product

This product works well for giving the medium coverage.
It has thick smooth texture and spreads easily
It takes a little time to set on the face and after few minutes it gives a flawless finish
It makes the imperfections and pores look less visible
It gives medium coverage
It does not work as concealer as it cannot cover the acne marks completely
it is cream based and hence does not give a matte finish.
Makes the skin greasy after about one hour of application

Positive Aspects

Packaging is very convenient
Small box can be easily carried in a purse
Very convenient to use and takes very less time for application.
It easily glides on skin
It evens out skin tone
Gives medium coverage
Does not give an artificial whitening effect
Evens out imperfections
It has 7 shades to choose from
Gives a brightening effect

The Less Brighter Side

Not suitable for those with oily skin
Can not conceal the targeted areas completely
After only few hours, skin starts looking greasy


This product is good for people with dry skin. It gives a very good option for the people who are looking for a medium coverage. The one visible good aspect of this product is that it givesis lookingook if shade is selected carefully. I would suggest to try it if someone is looking for a quick fix makeup base.
