L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup is a drugstore foundation I have been wanting to try and I received a complimentary bottle from SheSpeaks and L’Oreal Paris. This is my first ever L’Oreal foundation!
L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup comes in a glass bottle with .91 fl oz and retails around $12.95 in various drugstores. It is not a pump bottle so you do have to pour it but depending on your personal preferences, that could be a negative or a positive factor. I actually favor this container, especially for it’s size and flat shape.
L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup contains SPF 18 and is supposed to transform from liquid to powder, which it does. I do not see where it transforms on contact as some may describe, I just want to mention that as “on contact” sounds like instant. It doesn’t turn to powder as soon as you touch it but L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup does transform from a liquid foundation to a powder-like finish quickly as you work it onto your skin. I’m all about calling it as I see it! 😉
I received L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup in 332 Soft Sable, the deepest color of the 12 available shades. Soft Sable is a pretty good match for me since this Florida girl got quite a tan that doesn’t seem to be going away! It is very lightweight and I consider this a light coverage foundation, possibly build-able to medium. If you want to cover deep blemish scars or dark circles this is not what you’re looking for. For me it works because I don’t usually like to cover everything, like my childhood scar between my eyebrows or my cheek “beauty marks” aka freckles. This foundation is great to help even the skin tone and rock the no makeup look! I like being able to look naturally beautified in less than 5 minutes and run out the door.
By the way, be sure to moisturize well before using this because this will highlight very dry spots. It’s recommended that you not use a brush or sponge to apply. Instead the directions suggest you apply L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup with your fingers. I’m not a fan of applying foundation with my fingers but for sake of this review I followed the directions. I also tried using a brush and the results turned out just as well so I’ll stick to that. I think if you’re experienced in applying foundation with a brush and you work quickly it should be fine.
So do you like to rock the un-makeup look sometimes? Have you tried L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder makeup? I’d love to know what you think about it!
