L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation N4 Pure Beige

I’ve been promising you all a review of the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation in N4 Pure Beige a lot recently in my videos, so here are my thoughts on this foundation and why its become a staple in my makeup bag.

*The L’Oreal True Match review is coming next week!

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation N4 Pure Beige

For me glowing healthy skin and dewy skin are 2 different things, although I know for some they are the same thing. When I think of dewy skin, I think of a high sheen, not necessarily with shimmer and sparkles, but its something I liken to Summer. However, healthy glowing skin, the kind of skin that is lit within, now thats a different thing. If you are looking for that lit from within glow, then read on as I think I may have found a foundation for you.

Here is some information on the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation…

Now if you’ve seen any of my youtube videos lately where I mention the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation in N4 Pure Beige, you will know that my shade in this is 1 shade lighter than the L’Oreal True Match (Which I wear in N5). So, I do recommend swatching it in the shop as I found the shades did differ in the ranges.

The L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation is a pump action glass bottle, so application is easy and hygienic, although there are the issues of dropping it and it smashing. Although so far, I’ve dropped mine twice on my wooden floors and its survived. The down side to the pump is that you can get out too much product and not pop it back, so I’d pump as you go along rather than all at once. I found 2 pumps is more than adequate for my application and if I have a primer underneath, I only need a pump and a half.

Coverage I find it actually quite good. Often with the light infusing foundations I find they can be a little light on coverage, but with this I get good light to medium (More medium) coverage that is buildable, however I do not think you could get full coverage from this foundation without getting cakey. I’ve tried various methods of application and found for Lumi Magique its best with my buffing brush.

Lasting power is where this foundation lets me down a bit. I get about 4 hours even when lightly set with powder before I need to start touching up the t-zone. This area seems too shift the fastest with this foundation. However, a little powder and its good again. After 6 hours even with a couple of powder sessions the foundation really isn’t looking its best. A shame really as its a lovely foundation and I do love the finish.

I think the finish is what does it for me with this foundation and I don’t think the images will do it justice at all. My skin looks like my own, it doesn’t look cakey or oily. Just super healthy with a glow (Not a tan). It is that lit from within look, brighter skin. There isn’t a hint of shimmer in this foundation on me nor in the swatches, but there is also a slightly dewy finish and as I said above, powder with this foundation is a must. I do find, even with powdering lightly over it, I do still have that light from within glow to my skin.

So over all, yes I really do love this foundation. I love how it makes my skin look, definitely more youthful and would recommend it to those who have slightly older skin and also dryer skin. If your skin is oily I would avoid it in honesty, but only because of how it seems to last and need frequent powdering/setting. I do wish it would last longer on my skin and even with a primer I still can’t seem to lengthen its longevity. But the finish does make me forget the poor points with L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation, but do bare in mind this does not last well on the skin – at least not on me.

The L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation is various shades, although the shade range is not as good as True Match. The 30ml product costs £10.99 and is available in Boots, Superdrug and other pharmacies and supermarkets.
