L'Oreal foundation review and FOTD



The other day in my haul post I had mentioned buying the new L'Oreal nude magique foundation in shade 100 porcelain. I have decided to review this product as well as show you how I did my makeup for the day that I wore it.

When I picked up this foundation in boots there were not a lot of stock left of these (guessing they are popular!) but I swatched away and found that the lightest shade worked best for my skin tone (surprise surprise). When first applying this product I had applied some moisturiser before because my skin tends to go dry in the winter and other foundations I have used in the past needed this as a base to get the best coverage. I needn't of bothered though because the foundation went on perfectly and blended really well. It also was so lightweight that it didn't feel like I was wearing anything at all. The coverage is light- medium, which is fine to hide away some of the redness. I used a little bit of concealer under my eyes but the foundation did a good job of covering most damage under my eyes anyway! The finish of this foundation is liquid to powder and it does a great job of doing that. Because I have dry skin, like I already mentioned, liquid foundations and products in general do not sit well with me, so I steer towards powders. For £6.99 (introductory price, soon to be £9.99) this foundation is well worth picking up. This is the first drugstore foundation that I have tried and I am so impressed. I am a lover of the YSL touché eclat and this is definitely in the same category as that! The only thing I would change about this product, like I said in the haul post, is that it has a screwable lid and not a pump!  Other than that this foundation gets 4 stars from me! (see pictures below of foundation in use!)

FOTD
Todays makeup is more of a natural look and one that I can wear on a day to day basis, as well as using some products that I have wanted to try out for ages!

Both of these photographs were taken without flash in front of my bedroom window to let in natural light.
The products I used to create this natural look were


                                -L'Oreal paris nude magique foundation in 100 Porcelain
- Rimmel London wake me up concealer in 010 ivory
- Rimmel London stay matte powder in 001 transparent
- Urban decay Naked two palette, Bootycall (all over the lids)
- L.A Colors Wine and roses palette, second one in. (through the crease and lash line)
- Model Co eyeliner in Black 01 (along upper lash line, then smudged it out)
- Maybelline the colossal volume express mascara in Electric Navy
- Benefit Hoola Bronzer (along temples and under cheek bone)
-MAC Launch Away Satin Blusher (just above the contour)
- MAC Frosted lipstick in Bombshell
-Max factor lipgloss in 04 pink romantic

I hope you enjoyed this post, it is something a little different to what I have done before. If you would like to see more of this style of post then let me know :)

  4. I went to the drugstore today and saw this foundation for the first time but wasn't sure if I should get it because I haven't read any reviews on this yet. So thank you for the post, I think I'm going back tomorrow to buy it. :)
