Today I am here with a new launch , lâ€™Oreal recently launched this unique foundation with a different formula and the whole liquid powder concept sounded really interesting and hence I was eager to try it, also since I have tried their foundations in the past and they fared very well for me, so let us have a look at this one.
About Lâ€™Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder:
Discover the Un-makeup Look, No Flaws, and No Makeup Feel! Magic Nude is our 1st revolutionary liquid-powder formula that glides on and transforms to a fresh, powder-like finish. It’s so light, like you’re wearing no makeup at all!
Just shake and apply — it’s MAGIC!
Price: INR 899 for 27ml.
Packaging: The foundation comes in a small rectangular glass bottle with a twist up cap, the packaging is definitely unique but not the best! Since the glass bottle can break easily with a single drop which also makes it not at all travel friendly, also there is no pump dispenser which can easily cause product wastage while pouring.
My take on Lâ€™Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder:
The foundation is available in six shades in India, which is decent and I have the third shade 320 Natural Beige which has great amount of yellow undertones and suits my medium skin tone perfectly. The foundation has extremely runny consistency and I have to be really careful while pouring it. But once you spread and apply it almost turns into powder and sets quickly to a semi matte finish. It feels absolutely weightless on skin and application is so easy with it. As Lâ€™Oreal suggest fingers do work best with it and I can literally apply it within a minute, yes it blends effortlessly into skin even quickly then a bb cream which makes it a boon for busy days.
My skin is more on the normal side these days when applied on bare skin it does emphasize dry patches slightly, so I like applying a light moisturizer beforehand. Women with Dry skin will definitely need to moisturize skin properly before application. It sets on its own and I did not set it with any powder. Initially it has a semi matte finish which soon settles down to natural skin like finish. As the day passes my skin did look a bit shiny and oily in the t zone, but a dab of powder immediately took care of it. Although for those who have oily skin, it would be great to set with a light layer of powder to prevent getting a shiny and oily look later on.
Like Lâ€™Oreal describes it as a foundation for no makeup look, it has light to medium coverage. One layer evens out the skin but does not completely cover any imperfections for which a concealer cannot be skipped. It is buildable and with second layer I got good medium coverage. But if you are looking for a heavy coverage foundation then this is not be for you. It stays for around 6 hours on my skin when used alone before it starts fading, but I doubt if it will last for this long in summers as well when my skin gets oily. So the staying power is not very impressive, but a primer underneath definitely helps to some extent.
In all it makes a great foundation for everyday wear and I love the way it blends so quickly and feels as if I am not wearing anything, I have been reaching for this foundation almost every day ever since I bought it and it has definitely become my go to base product these days, although I wish it had better staying power!
