Hope you are enjoying weekend. Weather has changed a lot. Fall is almost here and we will see beautiful, colourful leaves scattered around trees and plants in a couple of days. Fall has its own colours and they look so amazing.
Now let's move on to my today's post.
Loreal is a brand that is very famous and trusted by beauty experts all around the world.
Loreal lumi magique foundation is not new to most of you. It was launched quite a few years back. But I got my hands on it early this year. Since then I am using it and now it's the time to express my views about it.
Let's start with packaging, as it is a drug store foundation but comes in a cute glass bottle that feels heavy in hand. The top of the bottle is of rose gold colour and looks pretty. And the best thing is that it comes with a pump. I have mentioned many times that I love dispensing pumps in foundation bottles and moisturizers. It makes so convenient to take out the product without any wastage and are hygienic at the same time. So thumbs up for packaging, but I didn't find it quite travel friendly, you have to be very careful to put in your hand bag or travel bag because of its fragile glass bottle.
The texture of the foundation is very good, neither too watery nor too thick. It is perfect for blending without looking cakey. And it doesn't dry quickly so gives good time for blending. I use my ferraruci oval shaped brush for blending and it blends seamlessly.
It is medium coverage foundation which is enough for my skin. But it can be built to full coverage by applying more as required. It can almost cover all imperfections on the skin, but if you have extreme problematic areas on your face then you might need corrector/concealer. But I don't find any need of these and one layer of foundation is enough for my skin.
The finish of the foundation is dewy/ glowy. As it claims " Flawless skin as if lit from within". And in my opinion this claim is true. It really gives my skin a dewy look that is also called a healthy glow which is very subtle not overly done. This is the thing that girls with oily skin might not like. I really like the glow that it adds to my face. Let me clear one thing here that after applying it the face doesn't look shiny or glossy at all. It just adds a subtle glow to the face.
The lasting power is also very good. It stays on my face for about 10 hours without primer( I have dry skin). I am sure it can last longer with the use of primer underneath.
Overall I love this foundation. I mostly reached out for this during these summer. It feels very light on my skin, in fact it melts into the skin and there is no mask like effect . And I love the subtle hint of radiance and freshness that it adds to my face.(you can see the dewy finish in the above picture where the foundation is blended).
The shade N1 Ivory /pure pearl is the perfect match for my skin tone. I purchased it for PKR 1900 from Bia's cosmetics (an online store). Price may vary at different online stores or retail outlets. I definitely will recommend it to anyone who likes long staying and dewy finish foundation.
That is all about today's post. Hope you like it. Have you tried Loreal lumi magique foundation? Share your experience in comments section.
