Loreal True Match BB Cream Review

Before you go and say “Yawn another BB Cream Review on P&B“, wait a second. This one is actually pretty good girlies !!! Specially with the diwali season coming up (Going to my first card party of the season tommorow yayie!!!) you may want to keep this little tube handy for a quick 2 minute pretty-fier. You never know, who may be falling in love with you over a game of cards (You may just find the king of hearts sitting across the table from you…sorry coudn’t resist that pun!!!) Btw, who all have met their better halves over a game of cards- let me know in the comments below.

As far as this Loreal True Match BB Cream is concerned, it does have a couple of aces up its sleeve ! It is one of those rare BB creams, that moisturizes, mattifies, covers and keeps you looking fresh. I guess the biggest advantage this has over the others is that it does provide more coverage than just a tint, and my skin actually feels pretty soft and silky after i wear this !  Plus my dry skin gets some good hydration, without this become a shine fest- it really does stay matte on my face!

Sounds super amazing? Well, there are a few hiccups. First of all- it leaves a white cast- which is temporary, but i distinctly remember the boy telling me i look like a ghost when i wore this (Ofcourse an hour later he didnt think that way, because this settled down but just a heads up for all you girls. Before you go all like ‘Mehak made me buy this horrendous white cast giving thing- give it twenty minutes to settle)

The SPF 35 with PA +++ is an added bonus ofcourse and overall i do think this is one of the better BB Creams in the market. Will this replace my existing tinted moisturizer (Loreal UV Perfect TM) ..nope. I still prefer that because it adds a glow to my face , but those of you looking for a bit more coverage should give this a twirl!

Pros of Loreal True Match BB Cream Review 

  • Moisturizing
  • Provides good coverage
  • Mattifies the skin and keeps it shine free (atleast my dry skin )
  • SPF 35 is a super bonus


  • Has a whitish cast which takes about twenty minutes to settle in
  • Not the best product to take photographs in!

Verdict: A-

Price: Rs 550/-

Recommendation: Out of all of the affordable BB Creams available in India, the Loreal True Match BB Cream is definitely one that suits my dry skin pretty well. It moisturizes, evens out my complexion and gives a polished matte look. It does leave a whitish cast at first which is kind of annoying, but it settles down and looks natural after a while. Have i converted from my regular use products to this? Nope not yet! Still prefer tinted moisturizers over these !

i think its about time i come to terms with the fact that oily skinned people cant find a decent bb cream in the indian market! :(

I have oily skin, and this BB CREAM suits me perfectly, perfect amount of hydration and coverage, subtly reduces redness too.
Though I agree this gives a ghostly white for initial 10 -15 minutes, but then settles down in a natural way.

Looks real good to me.


khadd October 19, 2013 at 10:36 pm

sounds good ! I might get this after i am done with the 2 other bb creams i am currently using. Hey the last link doesn’t work


Swati October 19, 2013 at 10:52 pm

This one sounds good! I have oily skin though and I prefer Ponds BB cream over the others. But I must check this one out too. And I can pass it on to my dry skinned sister just in case this does not suit me :)

I second Nandini on this..no bb creams or TMs is helping my oily skin so far..still I am using to finish up the bottle/tub..


srinjla October 20, 2013 at 8:15 am

Xuvious October 20, 2013 at 9:51 am

Sangeeta October 20, 2013 at 9:26 pm

Sounds like a nice product


Vipra S October 20, 2013 at 10:01 pm

Looks a good product but the white cast issue makes me skip it – I love the Clinique one :)
Nicely reviewed dear <3


Vineetha October 21, 2013 at 5:53 am

Whitish cast!!!!


Harpz October 21, 2013 at 10:41 am

Hi Mehak, you may wanna try Bobbi Brown’s BB Cream. Been using it for a year now and it really is quite amazing!


mehak October 21, 2013 at 10:50 am

Thanks H, i spotted it in the store the other day? Whats the coverage like?


Harpz October 24, 2013 at 1:08 pm

Coverage is moderate and its really hydrating! I have dry skin and fortunately for me, my skin is rather well behaved otherwise so it’s good enough for me! You may wanna try it since you have dry skin too.


Shireen October 21, 2013 at 5:28 pm

I have a question – I have acne prone skin and in the mornings, I use TBS Tea Tree Facial Cleanser followed by TBS Tea Tree Toner and TBS Tea Tree Moisturizing Lotion. Where do I fit the BB cream in? After the moisturizer or do I chuck the moisturizer away and use BB cream straight after Toner?? Please help!


mehak October 21, 2013 at 6:05 pm

Thats the idea: )
Its supposed to make you skip moisturizer as its an all in one.


Tina October 21, 2013 at 6:20 pm

Hi Mehak,

Which shade are you using? I had been gifted the shade “Gold” which looked just orange on my skin. I liked the texture, so I bought the shade “Ivory”, but it is lighter than my skin tone. Unfortunately, no “True Match” for me…


mehak October 21, 2013 at 6:22 pm

I agree- i have 02..its too lighjt for me ~!


Bhumika October 28, 2013 at 1:45 am

I am loving it too !
