I always feel a lot better about my make up when I’m having a good skin day so despite my happy addiction with budget beauty buys, foundations are one of the few things that I am willing to splash out good money for.
I have eczema so dry, flaky skin is the bane of my life and I find thick or powdery foundations just emphasises this. I love a foundation that gives me a hydrated and healthy looking glow.
I’m a big fan of Chanel Aqua vitalumiere, Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich and Macs Face and Body Foundation, and if you guys have tried any of these you will see a running theme of how I choose my foundations. All of my faves provide a light/medium coverage with a feather light texture and dewy finish.
I’ve been intrigued by all the talk surrounding this new Loreal ‘Eau De Teint’ Nude Magique Foundation and I just couldn’t resist trying it out myself, especially at the £6.99 introductory price!
I had high hopes for this product as it’s marketed as the perfect nude foundation that’s lighter than water.
I’m not a huge fan of heavy foundations and I’ve always wanted a foundation that looked good on the skin but still looked like you were barely wearing anything at all. Whilst my Chanel Aqua Lumier was as close as I got, upon close scrutiny you are still able to see that I was wearing foundation and I expected this Eau de Teint to be the same.
I must say that the Loreal Eau De Teint Nude Magique foundation has exceeded my expectations and it truly is the LIGHTEST foundation I have ever had the joy of trying. The formula is so bizaare, it’s really runny and fluid like water but as soon as it hits the skin it blends and sinks into the skin to a velvety texture. The skin looks evened out and any shine is mattified but not in a cakey way but as if you’ve used a blotting tissue. It’s really hard to describe as it’s not like anything I’ve tried before.
My skin is noticeably smoother, even, and hydrated. However it looks so natural, it’s so lightweight it literally feels like I’m not wearing any foundation at all, it’s my skin but better!
In terms of coverage, I found two layers of this foundation worked great on my skin issues which include discolouration and slight redness . One of the bonuses of having severely dry skin, is that I don’t suffer from blemishes too much, however I do have a few odd scars from the few pimples I’ve had in the past. The Loreal Eau De Teint Nude Magique foundation will give a light to medium coverage but I did find that I needed a little help with concealer to completely hide my scarring.
Overall I am super impressed with this foundation. It ticks all the boxes for me and therefore now sits amongst my fave foundations list.
- Super, feather light formula
- Natural finish – perfect nude look
- Light/Medium Coverage
- Softer, smoother looking skin
- SPF protector
- Affordable price
Eau De Teint Nude Magique Foundation is available from most Highstreet stores, so if you fancy checking it out try sampling it in Boots or Superdrug the next time you are in town shopping. Also now is as good time as any as it’s still on the introductory price of £6.99, after which the RRP will revert back to to £9.99. Which considering the quality of the product isn’t ground breaking!
