NEW L’Oréal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation Review and Demo

Hi beauties!

Today we’re reviewing a brand new foundation that just hit the drugstores: the L’Oréal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. This foundation is unlike any at the drugstore because it’s in a cushion compact form. Cushion foundations are extremely popular among Asian beauty brands, and although I personally have never tried them out, I’m excited to see a drugstore version of one in the states!

This retails for $16.99 at Ulta; I’m sure you can find it for cheaper at drugstores like CVS and Walgreens.

Claims:

  • Fresh, luminous finish for every skin tone
  • Buildable, customizable coverage
The foundation comes in 12 shades – for this review I used W3 or Nude Beige. Here are the swatches of all of the other shades in the line:

(click photo to enlarge)
Packaging wise, I’m a fan. I love the classy rose gold+white look. The product comes in a compact: you get the applicator on top, then when you open the plastic part, you’ll see the actual foundation, which is soaked in a sponge.

PACKAGING3 PACKAGING2
The directions say to press the applicator into the product and tap it onto the skin. As you see in the video demo, applying this foundation with a brush ended in a streaky, cakey mess, so I definitely recommend sticking to a “tapping” motion rather than a buffing/rubbing motion.
One layer of this and my skin looked fresh and more even. It didn’t cover up my blemishes completely; it’s definitely a sheer to light coverage but it is buildable. Two layers later, I was sure I would look cakey but I didn’t! My skin tone was noticeably more even and it covered up my redness well, but my blemish was still kind of peaking through. On the third layer I got about a medium coverage. Still didn’t feel cakey; in fact, my skin felt very smooth and the foundation was super lightweight. I loved the luminous finish it gave my skin- very glowy but not oily looking. I think oily skinned people will appreciate that it doesn’t give a “wet” look, but moreso a luminous finish.
I don’t see any mention of SPF in this, nor do I find it having a strong scent (or having a scent at all).
All in all, I’m a huge fan of this product! I’m going to keep testing it out with other products layered on top, different primers, and with a Beauty Blender. I’ll keep you guys posted!
Have you tried this out yet? Let me know in the comments!

HIGH END vs. DRUGSTORE MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Hi beauties!

Today I’m doing a special makeup tutorial where I apply drugstore makeup to half of my face and high end to the other. The result was a makeup look that was pretty much identical to each other, despite me using completely different products on both sides o my face. This tutorial is to show you that you don’t have to splurge on high end makeup in order to get a beautiful makeup look. I hope this inspires you in some way :)
