I have done it! I have found a foundation that works for me - YAY! It's only taken 8 months! After trying many different foundations, both high-end brands and drug-store, I found the L'Oreal Lumi Magique. This foundation was only released a few weeks ago, and I picked it up in Boots while it was on special offer. I got it for about £7, but usually it's £10.99. You can buy it here.
This foundation really is my favourite product right now, it is the perfect consistency - very light, and a liquid that goes on without being too heavy and creamy, and blends very well. It gives great coverage with two-three layers, and it feels like you aren't even wearing foundation. I also found the perfect shade for me (which doesn't happen very often!), the shade 'C1 - Rose Pearl' matches my skin tone perfectly, (my skin tone is NC20 - yeh, I know, I'm really pale).
The foundation lasted a good few hours, although it lasted much longer with a powder to set it (I use MAC studio fix). On the bottle it claims it is 'light-infusing', which is definitely true, and it gives you a healthy glow and makes your skin look a lot less 'dull'. It also gives a nice 'dewy' effect, so it isn't too matte but it also isn't wet and oily. This is a very natural foundation, and the best I've tried for a long time, and if you use foundation a lot then this one doesn't break the bank!
Have you tried this foundation? What are your thoughts?
