• L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint Foundation // review & demo - before & after •

"Perfectly invisible, invisibly perfect; our ideal nude" -
I couldn't agree with you more, L'Oreal.

I'd been wanting to try the L'Oreal Eau De Teint foundation for so long; the 'lighter than water' texture really intrigued me and I've been looking for a lighter base for summer. The foundation is super thin, almost like the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, and is very runny. I've been putting it to the test for about 2 weeks now and I've been itching to write this review! I've really been loving the way it performs and it's fast becoming one of my favourite bases.
I don't tend to apply moisturiser in the morning (sorry!) because I wear quite a heavy evening moisturiser that carries me over to the morning, but I'm sure that this foundation would work if you apply moisturiser under it. I've found the best way to apply it is by dotting it onto your face and buffing it in with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush. It is tempting to splodge a ton of it on your face, as you may think that a foundation this thin can't produce much coverage, but honestly you won't need more than one or two light layers to give a good amount of coverage - I have scars on my cheek and chin and you can see here that the foundation covers them, it's just so pigmented. If you're looking for flawless coverage, you can layer this product and it won't cake up or look too heavy, which is perfect, as I've worn it on an evening out and have wanted more of a flawless base - it definitely works either way. 
The foundation feels so light on the skin, is barely detectable and it doesn't wear off throughout the day. The finish is matte, which I don't usually go for, but then I just use highlighter in the places I want dewy skin. One of the best parts about this foundation, though, is that you don't need to powder it - the foundation sets itself and doesn't go shiny in the places that I get oily (my t-zone). I 100% recommend this and I've been reaching for it more than any of my other foundations recently. It's just such a quick, easy product that never fails, which is what you want in the summer when sometimes applying make up is more of a chore when the sun is calling you outside!

Have you tried this foundation & what do you think of it?

  6. I usually go for medium coverage at least, but I like how you described this as feeling light on your face. Makes me want to try it out, because in summer I don't like to wear as much on my face when its warm, so this sounds nice. :)
