L’Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation, £10.99 | Boots
I’ve recently posted about the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Primer (here), which is currently my favourite primer, so now it’s time to find out whether the Lumi Magique Foundation is as good as the primer!
I love the packaging! A glass bottle with rose gold details and a pump dispenser. I got mine in the shade ‘Gold Sand’, which is the darkest shade in the range. The shade is an almost perfect match to my medium olive skin with yellow undertones, but the poor shade range doesn’t cater for anyone whose skin is darker than mine.
The consistency is a bit thicker and harder to blend than my current favourite Benefit Hello Flawless foundation. I’d say this foundation gives a medium coverage, with the potential to build up to full coverage. My skin doesn’t look as flawless as with Benefit Hello Flawless, but it does look brighter and more dewy.
In general, I’m pleased with this foundation, but if I had to choose a high street foundation to repurchase, I’d go for the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation instead (review). I think the Primer is the little gem in the Lumi Magique range, and as a collection (primer, concealer and foundation) it’s a really good investment, albeit a pricey one for the high street, that gives you a ‘lit from within’ finish.
L’Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation is available now from Boots, priced at £10.99. It’s currently on a 3 for 2 offer, so if you also get the concealer and the primer from the Lumi Magique range, the cheapest of the 3 is free!
