The foundation has a great shade range but because I didn’t pick mine up in store I picked from the two colors that looked the closest to me online, Hazelnut & Beautiful Bronze, and prayed for the best. The foundation gives medium coverage and feels lightweight which makes it great for everyday wear. I don’t have large pores but I feel like the foundation glided on really easily and made my face look smooth. The finish on me was very dewy, it reminds me of my beloved NARS Sheer Glow but with less coverage. I love a dewy-glowy face but if you have oily skin you may want to powder oily areas so you don’t look greasy. I got about 8 hours of good wear out of this foundation on its own (no primer, no powder, no setting spray).
The only thing that I didn’t like about the Pore Perfecting Liquid foundation is that I experienced some oxidation with Beautiful Bronze. Beautiful Bronze when first applied was the perfect match for my skin, a nice medium brown with yellow undertones. By the end of the day I noticed that the foundation had oxidized slightly darker and redder. It didn’t look horrible and probably wasn’t noticeable to anyone else but I noticed it. Hazelnut is a very similar color to Beautiful Bronze but with slightly redder undertones. I didn’t experience any oxidation with Hazelnut. Overall Black Opal’s True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation is one of the better drugstore foundation options that I’ve come across.
