Raise your hand if you like shopping for foundation? Me neither. I feel like I'm constantly on the search for the holy grail of perfect color, perfect consistency and perfect price. Add to the fact that fall can be a tricky time to search for foundation as skin transitions from summer to winter and foundation shopping can drive a girl crazy! Luckily, there's any easy way to find the perfect color foundation for your skin - MATCHCo.
I'm not joking when I say that foundation shopping isn't easy for me. Take for example, my last purchase list from Sephora. Yes that is 14 different foundations - none of which was a perfect fit! Arg! Thank goodness Sephora has free returns!
But earlier this month, I had the chance to try out MATCHco foundation. MATCHCo uses an app and less than two minutes to analyze your skin and create a personalized foundation formula just for you!
Download the free app and it talks you through a few simple steps of tapping the camera on your forehead, cheeks and wrist. The app software normalizes the lighting conditions in order to capture a precise and accurate color of your skintone and then combines 25 separate skin scans, analyzing the tone and characteristics of your skin to derive your exact color. The process takes less than two minutes and you can order the foundation directly on the app. In a few days, voilá - your personalized foundation arrives!
Calling it a foundation is underselling it a bit. The formula is an all-in-one primer + moisturizer + color coverage. If your skin is oilier, you may be able to use it on bare skin. If you have drier skin, you may want to put it on over your own moisturizer.

Like many people my face and my neck are often a different color so while this foundation might look a little yellow going on, you can see that it actually blends perfectly and helps my face to match my neck.
This MACTHCo foundation offers a lot more than just color coverage too. The foundation has lots of goodness for your skin:
- Bisabolol, a form of calming Chamomile
- Green Tea extract to quench free radicals and reduce inflammation
- Vitamin E to rejuvenate and revitalize skin for a natural, dewy glow
- Peptides help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate, moisturize and give skin a healthier, more youthful appearance
- Ceramides prevent water loss and provide deep moisture, restoring the skin’s protective barrier against bacteria and pollutants
- Multiple antioxidants help reduce visible signs of aging, calming and soothing irritated skin and boosting collagen production
And if for some reason, the color isn't a perfect fit, MATCHCo accepts returns for 30 days.
