Review: L'Oreal Lucent Magique Foundation N2


Full Name: L'Oreal Lucent Magique Light-Infusing Foundation SPF 24 | PA+++

Price and Packaging

The foundation is priced at HK $155.  Purchased this foundation last October, when they were doing a 30% discount on the Lucent Magique line.  So I bought it for just above $100.  Pretty good price.

It came in a glass sturdy bottle, sleek and pretty.  The pump is present and is painted rose gold as with some writings on the body, elegant.  For its price, and a standard 30 ml of product, I think this is a big stand-out foundation.

My Review | The Look and Last

L'Oreal Lucent Magique says it has "Light Light Technology TM" which will give skin a "Lit-from-within Complexion Perfectly Flawless Finish".  Basically that means glow, and coverage two in one.  I will call it a medium+ coverage, not as light as MAC Face and Body, similar to Revlon ColorStay Whipped.  It gives a noticeable glow, borderline 'shine' to the complexion.

My colour in N2 is from the Neutral family for skin with neutral undertone.  I believe there is also a G for Golden/yellow undertone and R for Rosy/pink undertone.  It suits my lighter skin days perfectly.  But even on my dull skin days (the day I took my pictures below), it blends in nicely enough and brighten up my dull face.

I have normal/dry skin, turning into more normal/combination as the temperature rises.  Weather has been humid but cool these weeks so I can't speak for the real Summer as yet.  The formula lasts all day (at least 6 hours) on me with a tiny bit of powder to set my under eye concealer, cheeks (pore issues) and forehead.  I don't have issue with this oxidising or transferring throughout the day.

If you want to see my scary significant before-and-after pictures using this foundation, please expand!  



Conclusion

For its price and finish, the Lucent Magique foundation I feel is perfect as an everyday foundation (although I don't personally wear foundation daily).  This is one of the products that I will run out to repurchase, if I run out.  A possible "Mr Right Foundation" for my Big Day!

This may not work on very oily skin though, as I have dry to normal face.  For normal/dry skin, I highly recommend this to those who like medium to high coverage but glowing radiant finish!

What is your favourite foundation?  Do you like dewy or satin or matte finish?

    1. Thank you Eugenia... Foundation review is something I really enjoy reading... I hope you find my sharing helpful
      I remember trying another Loreal foundation before but didn't remember liking that. Do check out this Lumi line, I recommend it!

  2. I loved the "if I run out" disclaimer. I've only completed 2 foundations ever! I usually end up throwing them away because they go bad. I have to work on that.

    1. Hi CC, I believe the 'if i run out' phrase works for all (or most) of my repurchase claims... honestly i really tend to get a new item to try instead of re-purchasing one that i have previously tried, even if i love that item to death :S

    1. Honor, do you just set it with loose powder? I find that it doesn't last very long on my skin, maybe 4-6 hour is good; and it also transfers a bit. It is currently too pale for me I have to mix a darker foundation in order to wear this... :P

  5. Wish I had the right skin type for this as it sounds amazing, but I'm afraid it'll make me slick and oily within an hour. Sounds and looks lovely on you though!

    1. Thanks Liz, you're probably right, it may not be the best choice for oily skin... I am not even sure if it will work on me when Summer hits Hong Kong :S everything melts in our humidity and temperature...

  6. I like satin, something in between matte and dewy xx

    1. This works pretty amazing. And surprisingly good packaging for low-end product. I will admit that I have better foundation favourites though ;)
