Today I am reviewing L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder. As the name suggests, It’s a liquid compact very light weight and looks and feels absolutely natural.
L’Oreal Claims: Get the ultimate un-makeup look with Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup with SPF 18. Revolutionary liquid transforms on contact, leaving a soft powder like finish. This foundation is so amazingly lightweight it’s like wearing no makeup at all! Just shake and apply – its magic!
I am using shade number 316 Nude Beige, you can pick your suitable shade at the L’Oreal counter in any cosmetic store. I avoid using heavy makeup bases as much as I can. Anything heavy on my face makes me feel tired, I don’t know how that’s related but yes that’s the case with me. It also has SPF 18 which makes it the perfect skin base for this summers!
You can see me wearing it in my blog ‘Casual Everyday Makeup!’
I have medium to oily skin during summers due to which I avoid creamy products on the face. This product is recommended for those who have medium to oily skin. People with dry skin may not find it very appealing.
The product review is as follows:
Packaging: It comes in a glass bottle. I was and still am not very impressed by its packaging. You have to be ultra careful while handling it. Moreover it doesn’t have a nozzle or a pump to control the amount of product that comes out. In order to use it, you’ll simply have to pour the product at the back of your hand with a lot of control as its texture is not much viscous. I hope L’Oreal people would bring in a new and improved packing for easy handling.
Texture: It feels really light weight, almost feels like you have diluted your powder compact in water. On application it gives a very soft velvety feel. Gives a Matte finish. But I noticed it tends to look slight powdery / flaky on the sides of the nose, In fact on close observation it looked slight flaky on the cheeks as well as soon as you apply it ; but in about half and hour, it settles down.
Directions for use:
1. Wash your face and apply a moisturizer.
2. Shake the bottle well, pour it at the back of your hand (2-3 drops approximately).
3. Dot it all over your face and neck and rub it with fingers. The bottle says that it is not meant to be used with a brush or a sponge.
As per my opinion, you will not see the desired result the very moment you apply it but in about half an hour when the foundation settles down, the perfect texture comes to life!
Coverage and Stay time: It gives light to medium coverage and stays for approximately 6 hours. Perfect for everyday wear.
Price: Rs. 899/-
Availability: L’Oreal counters, NewU stores and online.
Rating: 4.75/5 Highly Recommended
Why it couldn’t make 5/5?
1. Mostly because of its “not so convenient” packaging.
2. Slight flaky look on certain areas the moment you apply it also contributes in not making it 5/5 but that can be ignored slightly as it improves with time.
All in all I truly madly deeply loved it and would really recommend it to all you pretty ladies. I would like to go ahead and declare it as one of my favorite makeup base 🙂
