Someone call off the search party… I’ve officially found the perfect summer base. We’re talking light coverage and a gorgeous, radiance-boosting finish. Girls, I’d like you to meet my new bbf… the L’oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation.
The cushion foundation concept is yet another trend we can thank the ever-growing Korean beauty market for. Encased in a handy compact, this revolutionary product features a cushion drenched in liquid foundation. It may all sound a little random, but put another way, this is the world’s first travel friendly (and not to mention unspillable) foundation.
One of the benefits of the cushion is the ability to completely customise your coverage, starting from sheer, right up to a more medium finish. It is exactly that, which makes it so perfect for summer! Nobody wants a thick, full coverage on hot and humid days… I feel sticky just thinking about it. The L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation comes with a little pad applicator, which being 100% honest I haven’t used. You know me, I just can’t imagine applying my foundation with anything other than a Beauty Blender.
The formula itself is absolutely weightless, but still evens your skin tone, hides your pores and disguises any redness. The soft, luminous finish literally gives your skin that ‘your skin, but better’ look. Oh, and it doesn’t cling to any dry patches… Can you tell I’m obsessed yet?
My only reservation was that it didn’t seem like it would last very long (especially not as long as a normal bottle of foundation anyway). However I’ve just read a great little tip on the Boots website. If you seem to be running a little low, simply flip the cushion over and you’ll discover the other side is still full of product. Result!
If you’re looking for a light to medium coverage base this season, I would definitely recommend picking up the L’oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation. It gives a gorgeous healthy glow to the skin and the handbag friendly design is perfect for an on-the-go application.
