L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation - Reviewed!

In all honestly I really didn't need another foundation. The reason that I picked this up was because I had tried (and loved) the concealer from the same range and my current foundation just don't seem to be sitting well on my skin. I also have never tried a L'Oreal foundation so I thought it was about time I changed that.

The packaging is lovely, it comes in a glass bottle with a rose gold pump. The foundation itself to designed for dull looking skin which mine definitely can be as we get into the colder months. It claims to give instant radiance to the skin.

So I want to get my bug bear with this foundation out of the way first, the shade range is pretty poor. There's 7 shades to choose from, I went for Rose Pearl which I believe is the second lightest. This is surprisingly a pretty good match for me. I will say the L'oreal True Match Foundation does come in a lot more shades including some for darker skintones.

Onto the good bits, first the texture of this is very light and doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all. The coverage is also very good, I tend to blend a pump of product all over the face and then take another half pump stippled onto the areas where I have scarring and redness and it gives a very flawless look whilst covering the marks. I would say it is medium to full coverage and amazingly even when I apply it to more of a full coverage it still looks natural and the skin looks glowing. This doesn't not look glittery at all which gives it another thumbs up from me. The wear time is also very good, i've worn this with different primers and powders and it always wears nicely throughout the day. I have found I got a little oily on my t-zone on a particularly hot day but I do have oily skin so that isn't that uncommon. 

All in all I am loving this foundation and have been wearing it most days since I bought it because I love the finish and look it gives. I also find I need less concealer (if any) when using this. This foundation hasn't irritated my skin in anyway either. I would definitely recommend this product, i've seen it compared to NARS Sheer Glow with a better wear time, since I haven't tried that foundation I can't vouch for that but I thought I would mention it. I've been so impressed with this range i'm definitely tempted to try the primer next!

L'oreal Lumi Magique Foundation retails for £10.99.

Have you tried this foundation? Do you find that some of your favourite foundation just don't sit on the skin right some days?


  1. It seems lovely :)
    I've been seeing so many mixed reviews on that foundation and because I have oily skin I don't know if I should try it. xx

  2. Hmmm...interesting. This seems like a great product to try out. It seems to blend well with the skin upon seeing it on your skin. I'll def check on this.
