Experience using L’Oreal Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation
L’Oreal Mat Magique Foundation comes in a cute pink cardboard box where all ingredients and other details are mentioned. Inside the box the foundation is in pink colour plastic tube with cap. I really love the colour of the tube.
Packaging is very attractive and its travel friendly. The tube dispenses just the right amount of product. But the nozzle always looks messy with the foundation. Overall the packaging looks pretty girly and attractive.
They have 5 different shades in this range G1, G3, G5, N1 and N3. So everyone can find their perfect shade of foundation.
I took shade G3 which is perfect for my skin tone. G3 is good for medium skin tones with yellow undertone.
The texture is not very creamy it’s soft and liquidly. It’s very easy to apply. I use beauty blender. You can use brush or your fingers to apply tis foundation. It glides in no time and gives semi matte finish on my face. It blends easily on skin. I don’t feel anything after applying on my face it’s really a very light weight foundation. Even if I touch my face I don’t feel anything heavy on my face.
It never looked patchy or never left any white cast on my face. It provides smooth finish.
It looks natural on my skin. It dint conceal or hide my acne brown marks on my face so the coverage is not that good. You need to use your concealer if you have any acne or any other spots on face. After Maybelline Fit Me foundation I am in love with this one now. It is the best foundation for daily use for oily skin people.
I usually moisturise my face with moisturiser and then apply this foundation. I think for dry skin people it will be dry and might dry out their skin.
It is best for oily skin and good for summers. It controlled oil on my face for around 4 to 5 hours which is pretty decent. After 5 hours I found little shine on my face which is quite natural because I have very oily skin.
You can skip compact powder and it will perfect. It never creases or settles in fine lines. It also has SPF 11 PA+++ which provides minimal protection.
It covers slight marks or blemishes on face. The coverage is buildable. But for me I have many brown spots on my face so it didn’t work that well to cover my flaws. But overall it’s a great daily use foundation for oily skin people.
This foundation is good for combination to oily skin. I don’t see this foundation working for girls or ladies with dry skin.
L’Oreal claims that this foundation stays for 12 hours which is unfortunately not true in my case. It stays on for good 5-6 hours after which it starts fading. You can touch with your compact to make it last for some more time. I use L’Oreal Mat Magique Compact after applying this foundation so it stays for decent 5 to 6 hrs on my face.
