MY TAKE ON LOREAL MAT MAGIQUE 12 HOUR BRIGHT MAT FOUNDATION- G1
I am in love with the packaging, it is so damn pretty! The box and tube both are bright pink in colour, the box has mat/frosty finish while the tube is shiny pink. The lid also is pink, fits tightly and there is no leakage. The tube is compact enough and lightweight to be carried around in your handbag.
The texture of this foundation is amazing! It instantly dries up and forms a soft-matte finish. It is creamy and forms a matte even finish on the skin and does not feel heavy at all.
Shade G1-gold ivory is the lightest shade in ‘G’ which has yellow tones. The ‘N’ numbered shades have pink undertones. G1 shade totally matches my N-42 skin tone.
How I use and staying power:
After applying sunscreen, I dot my entire face with this foundation and blend it quickly using finger tips. It is necessary you do this quickly since the foundation instantly vanishes into a dry matte finish. You would not feel anything on your fingers and face feels fresh, bright and matte. I also feel it blurs out the pores and scars if you have any. It does even out skin tone but certainly won’t hide stubborn dark spots on face since the coverage is light to medium. You can definitely use a concealer underneath. I use this for my office and I feel it is great for everyday use especially you are not used to leaving the house without a foundation.
Now coming to the staying power, the foundation stays all-day-long! I left my home at 7am in the morning and it was intact till I come home at 7:30pm, absolutely no shiny T-zone at all. Face stayed fresh and matte all day long.
