L'Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation
I bought this last week in hopes to find a much cheaper new favorite foundation.... I kept seeing adds for this stuff everywhere. I've had so much luck with the MAC Match Master I thought maybe this would be comparable. I chose the N 1-2 color. I matched it up to my skin, usually I'm very good at doing this. I try to take in to account the oxidation process.
Oxidation is very common with mineral make-up and other types of foundation. It can occur when the minerals and fats in the foundation react with pigments in the skin. It can cause the skin and foundation to look darker and yellow or orange as the day progresses. With oxygen being everywhere, it's is hard to avoid. This is why fruit will darken and your blood changes color when the oxygen hits it
Here is the description of the foundation;

Available in 15 true-to-skin shades in warms, neutrals, and cools
True Match™ Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup combines 3 powerful ingredients that work to improve your complexion the more you wear them. 40% pure water for all-day hydration. Antioxidants and Vitamins C and E for improved clarity and skin tone. And Liquid Light Technology for an instant, luminous glow. Isn’t it Time You Met your Match?

On my first use, it went on smooth and it seemed to cover very well. the color was much too light for me though, so much for the true match... The second time that I applied it, it still seemed smooth going on, but it did not look very smooth in the magnified mirror.
Overall I would give this a C.
I think if I would have had the right color I would have liked it much better (even though it was supposed to be true match). I paid $10.97 for this at Walmart.
