Makeup Product Review: Avon True Color Flawless Liquid Foundation

Avon has impressed me over – first with the Avon Anew Reversalist Infinite Effects Night Treatment Cream and now, especially with the Avon True Colour Foundation.

  • Maximum coverage foundation for an even skin tone
  • All day wear

Key Ingredients:

  • Opti light technology is the key for reflecting light, enabling a perfect skin tone at all times
  • Colour IQ technology helps formulate a shade that perfectly matches your skin tone.


Honestly, I use various foundations, dependent on what type of day I’m going to have, however I’m always nervous for all day / night kind of days, since that means checking on my makeup after a certain amount of time, as my skin becomes oily and the foundation settles into my skin making my pores and lines more visible that once unsettled, I need to touch up the foundation on the hour every hour.

However, thanks to Beauty Bulletin for introducing me to Avon True Colour Flawless Foundation for the #AvonMadeForMe campaign, as this has become my answer to full coverage daywear foundation.

In addition to this, Avon True Color does not oxidize (hence the term true color) so it’s a perfect foundation match should you find your color. The only downside is that there are not many colors to choose from and the undertones don’t suit a yellow undertone, like myself.


Currently retailing for R154 – 90 which is an exceptional price for a foundation that delivers more than some of the expensive foundation brands I use.

Ease of use:

My makeup application has become simpler, as this foundation provides maximum coverage therefore I skip concealer – which saves time additionally, it has a matte effect and you can skip powder application if you want a dewy look.

How To Use:

  1. Apply primer
  2. One pump of foundation is enough for full-face coverage and for darker blemishes I apply a bit more product over these imperfections.


This foundation does in fact, not oxidize, however, once you use other make products (which tend to oxidize) you will find that as a result, your foundation color will change throughout the day depending on what powder, blush and highlighters you use – the additional use of these other makeup products will all affect your foundation color.

It also has a prominent brown undertone, which can make other skin tones look dull.

Read below on how to find your foundation shade:

The inside of your wrist is usually a bit lighter than the rest of your face or body; I always match my foundation shades to my inner wrist.
So when the foundation does oxidize, the color is still a perfect match on my skin.
Always go a shade lighter rather than darker to avoid looking orange.
Avoid foundations that have ashy tones (usually pink undertone foundations)
My Avon foundation makeup shade is “nude”.

  • Does not oxidize
  • Provides maximum coverage
  • Skin stays oil free throughout the day
  • Affordable


  • Avon makeup is tested on animals
  • Does tend to dull yellow toned complexions, as the formula is too brown
  • Not a variety of shades to choose from

Would I use it again?

This would have been the perfect foundation for me had there been a shade to match my yellow undertone.

Cluttered is one way to describe the makeup industry however, Avon knows that in order to stand out you need to deliver quality first and they do with every single product I’ve tried recently.

I’m looking forward to trying other products from Avon on account of their commitment to quality and of course it’s an invited bonus that Avon is so affordable.
