FIRST IMPRESSIONS: L'Oréal True Match Foundation

I got this foundation with another L'Oréal foundation and wanted to try them out.

My skin is dry, red and I had a breakout to cover.
I used a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, prior to using it I used my moisturiser but didn't use a primer because I wanted to see what it was like without the additional product.
It's easily blendable and sinks into the skin pretty quickly but does have a velvet finish, which is stated on the Boots website but not on the packaging. If you add a little extra onto troubled areas, it does help to cover it but not completely, I buffed in a little more onto an area with spots using the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush.
Applying the rest of my makeup was pretty easy, I noticed straight the way that my skin looked dry in the troubled dry areas like around my nose. I didn't use a highlighter because I wanted to see if I would get a natural highlight. The first three pictures are with flash photography.
I applied it at 8am and by 1pm it was drying and clung to my dry patches as well as looking patchy.
This foundation worn horrible, made my skin look really dry, it's not hydrating which it claims to be 24 hydrating but it isn't.

The reason I gave it two points was:
  1. Packaging: I really liked the packaging.
  2. Blendable: I have had a few foundations that was hard to blend.
