MATCHCo Foundation Review

MATCHCo is a revolutionary foundation product developed to match your exact skin tone. Each and every bottle of foundation is formulated for your specific skin tone shade. You can’t just walk into your local makeup store and buy this foundation. That’s what makes it so special and unique.

MATCHCo’s foundation is available for purchase exclusively through their iPhone app. It super simple to get set up and matched for the right shade of foundation. In natural lighting with no makeup on, just tap the camera to different areas of your face when the app tells you to. Once complete you’re ready to order your custom foundation! Shipping is super fast too. Within a week you should have your very own personalized foundation.

MATCHCo Foundation Review - The Krystal Diaries


I’ll admit, I was kind of weary about trying this foundation at first. How exactly am I supposed to trust my iPhone camera to capture my skin tone correctly? Well after tapping my phone to my face in good indoor lighting, in the middle of the night, my custom foundation was ready to be blended.

I normally have a very oily t-zone, dry cheeks, and cystic acne, so I lean towards full coverage foundations for everyday use. I’ve now been using my custom blended MATCHCo foundation for a month and to my shock, I love it! There are only two other foundations I love, and I can now add this one to my regular makeup routine.

MATCHCo Foundation Review


First, the shade matched my skin tone perfectly all the way from my forehead to blending down past my jawline.

Second, it provides all day, full coverage. My acne and scars are completely covered, and the foundation stays in place all day.

Third, and most surprising, my oiliness stayed under control. I always prime my skin to help the oiliness and set with a finishing powder. I do with this foundation as well, but I find myself reaching for the oil blotting sheets less often when I wear this foundation.

MATCHCo Foundation Review

It’s so lightweight, natural looking, long lasting, and matches perfectly that I would highly recommend trying MATCHCo if you are on the hunt for a new foundation. Even if you’re not, you should try it.

    This is probably the best sounding foundation I’ve ever heard of. I always have trouble finding a foundation that matches my skin perfectly. I definitely need to check out this brand. It looks fabulous on you, and I love the packaging.

    This sounds just perfect I hate it when foundations make my face all made up.Your look appears absolutely natural.It’s great that it doesn’t increase oiliness too.Unfortunately no iPhone. Have to wait for an Android app

      Oil control is a very big must for me! Hopefully there will be an Android app soon.
