L'Oreal Lumi Magique.

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?



  1. Thanks for the review, I'll pick this up when my current foundation runs out!
