Review | L'Oréal Magic Nude Liquid Powder

When I saw this product in stores a few months ago I knew I had to try it out. I'm always looking for matte foundations and this one seemed interesting going from a liquid to a powder. It was a little pricey for a drugstore foundation, $16+ dollars I believe. In the photos above the only other thing on my skin is Maybelline's Baby Skin pore primer beneath the foundation. The colour I am wearing is Nude Beige. I'll do this review on a pro/con basis:

Product Pros
♥ Matte powdered look
 Light and fluffy if you're looking for light coverage (ex. can still see my freckles)
♥ Fun to use given it does indeed go from a watery liquid to a powder
♥ Easy to match to a skin tone 
♥ You don't need to powder your face afterwards! All-in-one. 

Product Cons
♥ Not very much coverage if you want to hide spots
♥ Expensive for a drugstore brand
♥ Packaging is not very convenient, I spilled so much of this stuff

Would I repurchase this? Probably. Hard to say, I am sure I will use this more in the summer months when it's hot and I don't want to wear such a heavy foundation. I suppose it'd also be handy for quick application so I would not need to bring a powder pot/brush wherever I was going. I wasn't disappointed with this product, I am just used to more full coverage foundations.

  2. I've never heard of this product before, it's probably new and not available in The Netherlands yet. It sounds great but I'm not sure about the packaging. A bottle? I don't think I would buy it. Great review!

    1. Yes the packaging is strange.. it's a glass bottle that you literally pour the watery foundation out of. Hopefully you see it in stores soon, it's quite interesting! thanks for reading!

  3. great review!
