L'oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder

6:21 PM

Hello Everyone!
I have waited a while to do this foundation review because I've had mixed emotions about it in the past couple of weeks.
I've been using this foundation since I first hauled it from ULTA here, almost a month now.
In this post you will see pictures of  me wearing the foundation on different days, with flash and no flash.
I will also show you the texture of the foundation, in case you want to give this a try it is no surprise to you.

L'oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder

Ulta $12.99

My Shade:
Nude Beige (316)

What it Claims: 
This foundation claims to be MAGIC!
No flaws
No Make up feel
Transforms into a powder like finish; leaving face feeling light as if your not wearing make up.
(L'oreal Paris)

My First Impressions:
The first thing I noticed about this foundation was of course the pretty bottle it comes in.
The first time I used this foundation I wasn't sure how to apply it, I had seen reviews and noticed it was very liquidy so I made sure to be very careful with it.
When I first applied it I put it on the back of my hand and I thought to my self how is this foundation a powder!?
As you can see in the picture below if you apply to much it gets very messy, it's a very runny consistency.

First Application:
I decided to put some on the back of my hand, then continue to dot it on my face and use a powder brush from ELF to blend the foundation. This is how I apply most of my foundations, with this one in particular I attempted to use my hands but it's too messy and the foundation is very greasy at least in my opinion. 

Day 1

This picture (above) is when I first applied the foundation. It blended evenly and pretty easily and it matched my skin perfectly.

Day 2

This foundation has light-medium coverage I don't believe it can be full coverage because it's very light weight and even when building up the foundation at least to me it gets very oily so I try to avoid that as much as possible, and keep it simple with 1 or 2 layers only.

In the claims you will see this foundations says it feels as if your not wearing make up, well on me it's the complete opposite. I feel the make up melting off my face or just sliding off. Any time I touch my face for any reason I have foundation all over my hands and it's very oily as I mentioned earlier.

Day 2: Mid day

At the end of the day I still have some coverage but around my mouth area most of the make up has come off and because I wear glasses around my eyes and nose there isn't much foundation left.

Day 2: End of the Night

On the picture with no flash (on the left) you can see all my imperfections showing.
At the end of the night I feel like all the foundation has slid off and I'm left with no coverage, but I still have a very oily feeling.

This foundation is not one of my favorites, I thought because it would have a powdery finish that it would work good with my oily combination skin. I'm not sure if the heat has anything to do with how this foundation has effected me, I even tried it with a primer, which I've never used and without and it made no difference.
I'm sad that I didn't like it.
