I purchased this product myself and have no affiliation with this company.
I have always been a fan of make-up that looks like you don’t have make-up on. I saw an ad for TLM Foundation on my Facebook feed and I was skeptical. I don’t often trust the ads that show up in my feed. I was intrigued by the idea so I started looking for reviews. I found the reviews to be about 50/50 on its effectiveness.
I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. I would never know if it worked if I didn’t try it myself. I saw the product much cheaper on Amazon but I was afraid of getting a knock-off price so I purchased it from alohave.com (which as of 09/04/23 no longer appears to be a working site) which is the site the Facebook ad directed me to. The price of the 1-ounce bottle was $19.99 plus shipping of $5.95 for a total price of $25.94.
I did not realize this product would be coming from China. It took two weeks to get to me, so if you need it sooner rather than later don’t count on it getting to you quickly.
Before TLM Foundation
Here I am, no filters, no make-up. You can see that I do have a lot of discoloration throughout my skin from a little pink in my cheeks and nose and freckles over my face. It is due to this that I often feel more comfortable when I wear a foundation. When I go to the gym in the morning I don’t put on full-blown make-up as there is no need but I do usually use a tinted lotion just to even out my skin.
After using the Foundation
I do feel that the TLM Foundation helped without the discoloration in my skin without that caked-out foundation feeling. I feel that the foundation makes my skin still look natural.
Now many reviews that I read prior to purchasing the TLM Foundation complained the foundation turned their face a pasty white and the color did not change. I did not experience this issue. The foundation does go on white, this is the color it is when it comes out of the bottle. There are no directions on the bottle but I read that you are not supposed to use a make-up sponge instead use your fingers as this helps the foundation do its magic.
After applying the foundation with my fingers I did say a colored foundation on my fingers instead of the white. So therefore my opinion is the foundation does change color. I also feel that the foundation does appear to be the true color of my skin.
TLM Foundation with Additional Make-up
I finished my make-up routine which consists of blush, loose powder, eye make-up, and lipstick. Overall I think the TML Foundation does what it says it does. It changed the color of my skin. The coverage is very light coverage. I may try tomorrow with more foundation to see if you can get heavier coverage for those special occasions when it is needed. I have seen customers that appear to have a much heavier foundation base than what I have here. However, I was looking for that natural look to even out my skin and wanted a light coverage which I have achieved here.
Update: September 4, 2023 – I have been doing some “cleaning up” of old posts and wanted to revisit this post. After using the bottle featured here I did not purchase it again due to the heavy price tag. However, since 2019 the price has come down drastically. I have decided to give it another try and have purchased 3 bottles for $16.19 on Amazon from an ad that appears to have great reviews. I will update this TLM Foundation Review again after trying it again, as I’m not happy with what I’m currently using.
