L'Oréal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation Review #ad






*Sponsered post*

Cushion products, particularly foundations, are having a bit of a moment in the beauty world. It started with Lancôme's Miracle Cushion, and it seems that, once again, L'Oréal was the first on the high street to throw their hat into the ring.

The whole idea of cushion products is that it is a sponge saturated in the product. This sponge is housed in a light pink compact with a contrasting metallic lid, the compact also plays host to a (fairly useless) application sponge and a decent sized mirror. I really like the packaging, I think it's really cute and so handy for popping in your bag, as the top layer acts as a seal to the sponge to prevent leaks and to stop it from drying out. 

The foundation itself is amazing, I've been using it for the past couple of weeks and I really, really like it. I've found that the best way to apply it is with a damp beauty blender, because it applies so quickly, and absolutely beautifully. It also feels really soft and light against the skin. It has decent coverage, t's more medium but can be built up for something more full, and easily covers redness and minor blemishes. It also has a lovely finish, glowy, but in a lit from within kind of way and lasts reasonably well on the skin. 

I only have three teeny tiny niggles about this foundation, these are: 

1. The shade colour/number is not on the packaging, so things can and will get a little confusing.
2. Mine has already started to dry out 
3. The foundation claims to hold 30 ml, roughly the size of an average bottle,  but I  don't think this would last as long as regular bottle of foundation. 

I would also say that this is not the best for oily skinned lads and lasses, due to it's finish. However these are only minor concerns. Overall the foundation performs really well, it is an excellent colour match for me, I have the shade 03. Also due to the way it's dispensed you do tend to waste less product, so I do think it does balance out. I really like it a lot.
