Hi Beauties and Happy Friday!
I was sent a bottle of L'oreal Magic Nude foundation from SheSpeaks to try out and review. I have heard tons of things about this but never willingly went out and bought it. It is supposed to go from a very liquid foundation and turn into a powder finish. It didn't really interest me just because I thought it being so liquidy like water, it wouldn't cover my imperfections. Glad to be able to try it!
My thoughts after the pictures
It does give you that powder finish which I liked. Didn't think it would be that intense but it really was. I tried using my fingers the first time I wore it and didn't like it. I am not a finger using person though. If I am in a rush with some bb cream I will but I prefer brushes any day. Next time I chose a stippling brush from real techniques and I loved that way. You have to be very careful our it can turn very streaky. Start by using very little. It goes a long way. As for coverage, I think its decent. It got rid of most my redness and I didn't feel as if I needed concealer everywhere on my face.
Also, if your oily like me, don't forget primer! Without it, it wore pretty quickly and got a little patchy. It only lasted me a few hours before I had to touch up or turn into a blotchy mess. That was the downside which makes me iffy to purchase it in the future.
To sum it up:
Do I like it? Yes
Would I purchase it? Probably not
It just doesn't go above and beyond like other foundations I use.
Have you tried this foundation?
