L'Oreal latest offering has been compared to the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Foundation (no surprise that the L'Oreal group own Armani Beauty) and at a quarter of the price I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. It claims to be a "feather light foundation which feels as light and fresh as water and gives you the perfect bare skin look". I picked it up on offer for €7.99 but it will retail at €13.00 for 20mls. (Usually foundations come in a 30ml bottle so I think this is a bit of a rip-off). The bottle is glass and to be honest I’m not a huge fan of it. You have to tip the bottle to get the product out and obviously once isn't going to be enough to cover the whole face. I ended up going back about 10 times to get the coverage I wanted. A pump dispenser would be a lot handier and far more hygienic. It is available in 6 shades and has an SPF 18 (not so good for flash photography).
It's a sheer to light coverage foundation so I wasn't expecting it to be able to cover alot. It feels very silky when you apply it to the skin and blends seamlessly into it. It literally feels like applying water.
I applied it using my fingers and tried to build as much as I could.
hhhmmmm!!! Im not sure...It really is very light coverage and didn't cover my redness, blemishes or dark circles with one layer. You would definitely have to build up the coverage or use a good concealer. Oh the bright side it does feel completely weightless on my skin and has a beautiful semi matte finish. This product would be perfect for someone with good skin who is looking for a light coverage foundation with a good SPF (18 in this case), weightless finish and easy application. It blends well and spreads easily and is probably more suited to normal/dry skin. Unfortunately, I haven't fallen in love with this like I would hope to have and my favourite pharmacy foundation still remains the same - Rimmel Wake Me Up....But I will continue my hunt for the holy grail of foundation and keep you updated as I go.
What do you think of the L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint Foundation? Have you tried it? What other lightweight foundations do you like?
