Summer is just around the corner – although here in the UK it does not feel like it – and all the make up lovers are trying to find the dewiest foundation out there. A lot of people have been raving about the L’oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation as well as the L’oreal Infallible Pro Glow but while that one is not yet available in the UK, I thought I would start by trying the cushion foundation and give you a little review on it.
The idea of a cushion foundation was never something that pleased me at first. I would always think that it will dry quickly and that probably won’t last for as long as the other liquid foundations I own.
Yet, as a beauty blogger that loves to try new products, I could not miss this new release.
After trying it for at least a week, my decision was made: I love this foundation.
The packaging is beautiful, it has a decent size mirror and a cushion that you are suppose to use to apply your foundation.
I have tried it and it does work and give the foundation a beautiful finish but it does take a little bit longer so I tend to grab my beauty blender instead and it works perfectly.
The foundation is very light weight but with a great coverage that I was not expecting. It blends like heaven and gives you a very dewy finish, perfect for spring and summer season as well as for us galls with dry skin.
Although it has medium to full coverage, the fact that is very light weight allows it to look very natural on our skin and not cakey at all.
It lasts for at least 6 to 8 hours without fading but I do tend to get that annoying extra oily glow on my T zone even having dry skin. I do have to carry a powder with me to set it after a few hours so I don’t look greasy in that area.
Apart from that, this foundation looks flawless and it does not set into my fine lines as many others do and that is definitely a plus for me!
Overall, I think that this foundation is great for an everyday wear as well as a night out as you can really get a light or heavy coverage depending on how much product you dab on to your face. It looks and feels great on the skin, it is very easy to blend and it has a good lasting power. If you tend to touch your face quite often, you might have to touch it up but apart from that, it will look flawless for as long as you want.
The L’oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation retails for £14,99 which in my opinion is a bit pricey for a drugstore foundation. Yet, I do believe it is worth the money and I am considering to buy another on for when I don’t have a fake tan as I do love this product. It has been my go-to foundation for an everyday look with a dewy, bronzed skin, very natural eye makeup, a bit of mascara and a pink nude lipstick. Perfect!
