First Impression: Loreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder

When i first saw this foundation, i got really excited to try it out. 
I thought that it would make a great summer foundation. 
Since in those months i don't wear as much make-up, i needed something light-weight.

Onto my first impression.....
  • It ranges anywhere from $9 to $12, it just depends where you decide to purchase the product. I got mine at Wal-Mart for $9.97. 
  • It comes in 12 different shades, I got 324 Buff Beige which is in the middle I am about an NC40-NC42 in a MAC foundation. 
  • As far as packaging go i really do like the glass bottle, but it can get very messy since it is very-watery. 
  • It is a 0.91 Fl. Oz. which is a little under your average foundation. 
  • Has an SPF 18
  • Staying power is about a 3-5 hour wear. Keep in mind I did not use a primer or a setting spray while wearing this foundation. 
  • It is a light coverage, so you will still see your imperfection.
  • I have combination/oily skin meaning that my T zone is the only part of my face that gets oily, and the rest of my face is dry. I notice that when i apply it to the dry part of my face it made look like i had dry patches NOT CUTE. If you do have dry skin i will suggest moisturizing very well before even using this product.
  • Last but not least is the finish of it, when you first apply it feels/looks dewy and soft once it set onto your skin it is a matte finish. Which is the only down side of this foundation for me. I actually did want the dewy look.
Excuse my under-eye bags!
This is how it looks.
I had been wearing it for about 3 hours.
Overall i actually do like this foundation, like i said in the beginning i wanted something light-weight. 
With this foundation is what i'm getting just a hint of color to even out my skin tone.
I hope you found this helpful.

Creme Cup

Creme Cup is one of my all time favorite lipstick from mac. It is describe as a light blue pink on the mac website i think is more of a nude baby pink color which is beautiful. I love anything nude so when picking up this color i knew it was a perfect match. It is a cremesheen formula which is super soft and moisturizing. At first it is a bit sheer but is very build-able to the true color on the tube.

This swatch is about 3 layers so like i said it is a build-able color and it is gorgeous. I paired it today with very simple everyday makeup eyeliner and mascara. With something like this the lipstick is the main focus.

Till next time!
