Ever since watching a few YouTube Videos prior to the release of L’Oréal’s new foundation I’ve been super excited to try it out for myself. Yesterday, my local Superdrug came up with the goods and not only have I managed to get my hands on the ‘Nude Magique Cushion Foundation’ but also the ‘Cushion De Soleil’ Bronzer at an amazing buy one get one half price. Today, I tried out both products for the first time and have been highly impressed.
Firstly, the packaging of both the foundation and bronzer is so pretty, metallic pink and brown. Secondly, I think its the only compact foundation I’ve ever come across complete with a mirror so perfect for applying makeup on the go.
Both the foundation and bronzer come with an application pad, however I tend to avoid using these as they get quite grubby. Instead, I apply the foundation with a Real Technique Expert Face Brush. As you can see above, the foundation really is like a cushion and when you dab your brush into it, the brush really picks up a lot of the product. The foundation is super dewy and glowy, I have shade 1 the lightest and its a great match for my skin. The coverage is definitely buildable. I’ve been very impressed with the bronzer as well, I dab the same brush into the bronzer and contour my cheekbones and temples ( post on contouring coming soon!) The bronzer, is super blendable so you avoid any streak marks and gives the skin a great glow.
~ Final Thoughts~
I’m really impressed by these new L’Oréal Paris launches, the foundation is really pretty and revolutionary for makeup on the go and the Bronzer is great for lighter toned girls to get that summer glow!
