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.

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!
