Honest reviews


Light Coverage with SPF 18

I got this because it reminded me of the old Pore Minimizer makeup from Clinique. First, the shades tend to run darker than they appear. Also, the coverage is thin. The liquid is not thick like foundation at all-it’s like water. That said, once I found my shade it did a good job of giving a matte look on my nose and it’s easy to apply. I keep it in my purse/desk for touch-ups. Also nice is that it’s SPF 18 and that it comes in a glass bottle. If you’re looking for a light, sheer coverage matte finish with SPF, this is great. It’s pretty much the opposite of the bb and cc creams out there!

I LOVE this Product

I use this with a pea size drop of too faced primer, and it’s the best foundation I have ever used! I have used Mac, and Bare Minerals in the past, and was happy with them both, but I wanted something just a bit better. Once I read a review on this I had to try it, and I’m so glad I did. It’s the best! I will never go back to my old foundations. This is light on my skin, great coverage, and beautiful! I feel like my skin is perfect when I wear this. It’s light enough to wear everyday, but heavy enough to wear when I’m on TV. I love it!

Makes your Skin Look Like Porcelain!

This foundation is amazing! It actually does what it says it is going to do.When I put it on, my skin looked like a porcelain doll! It was as flawless and porcelain like as Rose’s in Titanic.The only negative thing I have to say is the price.I wish it was a bit lower. But that is it.This product is amazing nothing but positive feedback.

FABULOUS Foundation!

L’Oreal’s Magic Nude Liquid Powder does everything it promises, and more! It really does feel as if you’re wearing nothing at all. Dab this liquid foundation on your face, and smooth. That’s all there is to it. It dries instantly to a powder that you can’t feel and it’s invisible to the eyes. The only proof you’re wearing it at all is your now-even skin tone. It makes your face into a smooth, fresh, evenly-shaded palette for your blush, eye makeup and lipstick.My skin gets oily as the day goes on, but Magic Nude doesn’t streak or spot and didn’t cake in my cheek hollows or fine lines (I’m middle-aged). It didn’t streak, melt away, cake or turn orangey when I was sweating outdoors. There is a perfect shade for all skin tones and racial types in this product line.I own several different brands of foundations because my skin tone changes with the seasons. Magic Nude is by far my favorite, and I will switch over to it completely when my winter and spring shades run out. I use many different lines of cosmetics, from the drugstore brand to department store, and I can’t say enough good things about this foundation. I bought the Sand Beige, and can’t wait to try the lighter ones for winter and darker for summer.Check your favorite fashion magazine and L’Oreal’s website for coupons. I can usually find one for $1 to $3 off for L’Oreal face products.Five stars!

the “am i even wearing foundation” foundation

This is neatest foundation I’ve tried in awhile. It goes on so smooth & makes my skin look flawless. It’s a very light foundation & a little goes a long way. It seems to instantly turn to powder after you get it blended in so it makes the need for powder almost unnecessary but unfortunately, my skin is super shiny so in my T-zone, I still have to add a touch. It seems to have staying power, as I work from 7 am to 4 pm & it still looks intact at the end of the day.

Pretty Good

To say I love this product is an understatement. It goes on liquid smooth and becomes a powder consistency. It’s like having a primer and foundation all mixed together. Just a little bit is needed. It makes my skin look smooth and glowing. The price is great too. Only regret is that I didn’t try this sooner. Recommended.***UPDATE: Had to change rating because the product dried out my skin. 🙁

Almost a dupe for a more expensive brand

The consistency and coverage is very similar to a more expensive Department store brand – although the colors appear a bit different on the skin. I didn’t like the packaging – the glass bottle is a bit unwieldy and not convenient for travel (if you’re clumsy like me) and I missed the dropper that comes with the more high end version. I recommend if you’re looking for a great every day light foundation – but I don’t think its an exact substitute for the more $$ foundation.

L’Oreal has done it again!!..

I actually really like this foundation because it’s very lightweight, dries to a powder finish, and feels like you have nothing on. Although it’s light, it does have light coverage and even out skin tone. I like wearing this on days that I want a little coverage, but I don’t want it to feel cakey. I recommend this for the summer time as well!! I think this is a good dupe for the MAC Face & Body foundation because I feel like it gives the same coverage. Make sure you don’t freak out about the consistency. it is very liquidy!! but it applies well. It says on the back of the bottle to use fingers, but I like to use a stipple brush. Just don’t use a beauty blender or makeup sponge because this product WILL soak all up into the sponge since it’s so liquidy.

OMG… I have found a new love. For years Ive been using Almay. Using with a sponge to apply to face. This foundation is thin. The bottle tells you to apply with finger tips and they arent lying! A little bit goes a long way! I recently have been apply with my Sigma F80 makeup brush and works fine. I apply 2 coats every morning. Glides on perfectly, doesnt settle in my creases or eye wrinkle. Even glides on top of my concealer! very happy with this. Doesn’t feel caky or thick, Bought my first bottle Jan 7th and have PLENTY left now that we are into February already. 1 bottle would normally last atleast 2 months… great product!

Comparable to Armani Foundation

I found this little wonder after reading an XOjane article and new I had to try it. After trying it, I am AMAZED. Normally I stick to high priced foundations like Face Atelier and Makeup Forever or imported BB Creams, but this stuff is MARVELOUS. It covers beautifully, blends easily, and dries to look indistinguishable from flawless skin.I only wish it came in more colours as the palest is a little too yellow for me (admittedly I am a very unusual bluish shade of extremely pale, think printer paper and you’ll have a pretty good grasp of my skin tone).I may buy it in a second colour for using when I’ve had a fake tan or for contouring,The bottle is quite small, but you have to use so little to get great coverage it doesn’t matter.

Sheer coverage

This is a very nice makeup if you don’t want to look like you are wearing makeup. It just smooths your skin out nicely. I like it.

Feels like velvet

This is fabulous foundation. It feels so nice going on and keeps my skin so soft. I like the fact that it has sunscreen. I will be buying this again and it is reasonably priced.
