L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation


Cushion foundations seem to be all the hype right now so I was looking forward to giving this L'Oreal one a try.  I love L'Oreal as a brand and have most recently been loving their Lumi Magique foundation (which you can see my review of here) so I had high hopes for this new foundation.

The foundation comes in a little round plastic compact with a mirror in the lid.  To be honest there is nothing really wrong with the packaging, it looks nice enough and it is nice and compact, making it perfect for fitting in your bag.  The only problem I have with the packaging is the second lid that the applicator sits in and covers the cushion, it feels very flimsy and when I open it I always feel like it's going to snap off so I'm just hoping that it stands the test of time.  It tells you to make sure that lid is always closed properly to ensure the foundation doesn't dry out so I'd hate for this to happen if it did break off.

Now onto the product itself, as you can see once you open the second lid there is a soft sponge like cushion soaked in foundation.  Taking the applicator by putting your fingers under the strap, you gently press the front of the applicator into the cushion and it applies a nice even layer of foundation onto the applicator.  You then just tap the applicator onto your face and repeat the process to build as much coverage as you like.  Obviously the more you tap the more coverage you get.  I would say this is a very light to medium coverage but it can take a lot of product and a lot of tapping to get a medium coverage.  I would definitely say this is more of an everyday foundation when you don't require too much coverage.  If you like a full coverage foundation then this is probably not the one for you.

As I have really dehydrated skin I am a sucker for a dewy finish and if there is one thing I can promise you it is that this foundation gives you the most beautiful luminous finish.  It leaves my skin looking so radiant and there is not a dry patch or any cakey-ness in sight.  It applies to the skin so beautifully and evenly and leaves your skin looking so nice and natural.  It also contains SPF 25 so keeps your skin protected too.  For £14.99 I think it is a great product and one I would repurchase, even better there is £5 off the L'Oreal Nude Magique Foundations at Boots at the moment making it £9.99.

Have you tried a cushion foundation before?  What do you think of them?
