L'Oreal Le Blush True Match Blush in Pink Grapefruit - A Summer Blush!

You know how I've always been a fan of matte blush?
Well, now that the temperature is high and I'm sweating 90% of the time, I knew my make up routine has to change!  From natural makeup to almost NO makeup at all!  But of course, I still need to look decent when I go out so I switch most of my makeup products and settle for something different.

Like this blush that I kept in my make up stash for quite some time and haven't touched because it didn't pass my "matte blush" and "highly pigmented" department. Little did I know this nifty blush from L'Oreal Paris called Le Blush True Match blush is going to be my Summer Favorite!

L'Oreal Le Blush True Match Blush

Shade: Pink Grapefruit
Just by its name, you know it'll work for summer, and actually, 
for all seasons as long as you have fair to medium skin tone.

This tiny blush has a free blush brush and a mirror which are very important and useful by the way!

I start from the apples of my cheeks applying upward to the hairline for a bit of "contouring effect".  The free brush works wonders!  With it's animal hair, the feel of the brush is just right to grab the right pigment for that "summer glow".

As for my summer look, I prefer to just apply a small amount of concealer and set with powder foundation.  Fix my brows, line my eyes, apply a good amount of mascara, use Le Blush True Match Blush in Pink Grapefruit and a tinted lip balm and I'm ready to face the harsh sun!

My thoughts on True Match Blush in Pink Grapefruit ---
  • This blush shade can be layered but the effect will always be natural.
  • Gives a nice glow without adding any highlighter which is perfect since I don't want to pile up on makeup in this heat.
  • No matter how much you apply, the effect is really natural and no streaks at all.
  • Won't enhance the look of your acne marks or skin redness.
  • Re-application may be needed if you have oily skin.  The good thing is, the packaging of the blush is super handy and you can do retouch without bringing an extra blush brush!
This shade reminds me so much of the famous NARS Orgasm but the True Match version is lighter and has more shimmers.

What is your favorite blush shade this summer?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. i love mattes too ms nikki (foundation, lipstick and blush) and this blush is just perfect and summer ready!

    1. Ako I used to love matte lang on blushes, pero this is an exception! L'Oreal is making better and better blushes! Yung isang favorite ko L'oreal din!!!

    2. i have only tried l'oreal shampoos but not yet on their makeups!

  2. Favorite ko pink marshmallow for truematch.. since highschool! I'm glad na rediscover ko ulit sya from Loreal! <3

    1. Wow, I'll have a look on Pink Marshmallow. Aga mo mag mookap sis! hahahaha

  3. Waaahh i really love putting some blush sa cheeks ko before....but b'coz im preggy now nawalan na ako ng gana to put make up. Pero...promise after ko manganak at makarecover sa cs ko ill try and apply all ur teachings ms. Nikki. And hopefully makakaattend ako ng seminars/events mo po. One of my bucket list tlga yan. Sana talga.

    1. okay lang yan!!!! you will get back for sure as long as hilig mo! and yes, I will have a lot of events and workshops coming up! so please join!!!!

  4. I'm not sure if its just me but.. I can't see the difference of the bare cheeks and when applied except for the shimmers. It looks too natural na parang you do not have any blush at all.

    I might check their other shades but a pass for this one.. :)

    1. well, you are right, that is actually what I want for summer! yung hindi super makulay :D

  5. That does really make a huge change in your complexion. It really makes you glow. Great review.

    Stay Wonderful Always,
    Kintsugi of Life

  6. Ang pretty at ang fresh ng look ni ms. nikki. It's a good thing you kept your L'oreal blush, naghihintay lang pala ng right season para magamit. Pang summer pala sya! Yung face natin parang cake, yun makeup parang icing na nakakaganda pero kapag natunaw dahil sa init ng panahon- disaster!

    1. thanks Jhake! oo, dineadma ko ng ilang bwan, nice pala!
