Drugstore Dupe? : L’Oreal True Match V Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

Hey huns,

In my opinion, I’ve never seen a foundation more alike in terms of coverage, application and finish.

Both the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk and L’Oreal True Match Foundation provide medium yet buildable coverage. Both foundations offer simple smooth application as well as a natural and lightweight finish.

Both foundations are oil free and offer a seamless application. However the Giorgio Armani foundation claims to be suitable for all skin types whilst the L’Oréal True match has not specified a skin type.

I purchased the L’Orèal True Match Foundation from the my local Superdrug.


The L’Orèal True Match retails for just £9.99 whilst the Giorgio Armani Foundation retails for £40 – lol massive difference.

Final Verdict

Personally, I feel there are similarities in both the L’Orèal True Match and the Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation however in terms of shade range and undertones L’Oreal True Match does offer a limited range – but this is no surprise as it is a drug store foundation. I personally struggled to find my shade match and I was constantly unsure whether the foundation would be to orange or ashy but after several trials and errors I found my shade.

Honestly, I would have to say that the L’Oreal True Match is an ALTERNATIVE and CHEAPER foundation in comparison with the Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation..

Hope you all enjoyed the blog post!

See you lovelies in my next post xx
