L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Review

When I first spotted the Nude Magique Cushion foundation in Farmers and advertised, I will admit I was slightly confused. Intrigued but confused. How could a liquid foundation be in a compact without going everywhere?! It is marketed as being able to live in your hand bag to use on the go, but am I going to end up with a foundation lined handbag?! – I have been trying this foundation out to find out more!


In the video above I have shown you how you can use this foundation to go from day to night. Now I will go into a bit more detail about the actually product!! PLUS I also have THREE of these foundations to giveaway so keep reading or watch the video to find out how to enter! xx


Packaging: Much like the Matte Lip Powders, the packing of this foundation is what really drew me in. I was so intrigued to see how exactly this could work! Basically there is a sponge like ‘cushion’ inside the compact that holds the product in place! There are two compartments inside the compact. One houses the sponge applicator that clips shut over top of the cushion foundation. The second compartment is the foundation cushion itself. So there is a bit of added protection with the foundation essentially having two lids. – This made me feel more comfortable about carrying it around!


The product itself is made out of pink plastic with a mirror inside. I do love the size of the mirror, it takes up the whole inside of the lid rather than a small portion in the middle!! – The bigger the mirror the better! 😀  When open and using the foundation the packing is a little bit ‘chunky’ for my liking but it does fit together nicely when closed.

Formula: Like many L’Oreal foundations recently I am blown away with how much I like the formula of the Nude Magique Cushion! This product promises a weightless foundation with light to medium coverage that leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated! I very much think this foundation lives up to it promise! It feels super light on, it gives a gorgeous healthy glow to the skin, and it’s so quick and easy to apply!


The Nude Magique Cushion is definitely on the light to medium buildable coverage. If you are after a full coverage foundation I wouldn’t say this is one for you. This is one of the things I like about this foundation is it allows your natural skin to show through but look more polished and flawless. I have had quite a few compliments while wearing this foundation.



Lasting Power: For being such a light weight foundation I was expecting that it would not last very well on the skin. I was pleasantly surprised with the lasting power. It wears off around my chin and places I touch my face a lot but other than that it stays on throughout the day. I use a flattened tissue to blot the oils away from my face through out the day. Very little of the foundation transfers when blotting which is great because I need to do it many times a day!!

Colour Match: For reference my skin is a perfect match with the 01 Porcelain shade. There are six shades in total! Check out how I pick my foundation shade.


Application and Finish: What I love the most about this foundation is it actually does a lot of the work of applying foundation for you. The sponge applicator glides the foundation into the skin, essentially buffing as you go! It is so quick and easy to use. I always set my foundation with a powder and the finish of the two (as shown in the video) gives my skin a gorgeous dewy finish!

Price and Where to Find Them: I generally get my L’Oreal products from Famers $35.99nzd (they also have Buy Two get the Third Free on L’Oreal Skincare Hair Products and Cosmetics at the moment as at 30/5/16). Also a lot of pharmacies stock L’Oreal!


Over All: Over all I love this foundation for everyday wear! I have been reaching for it most mornings as it is quick, easy and gorgeous on the skin! I highly recommend this foundation. Especially if you’re after a light to medium coverage that is very light weight on the skin!
