L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder is a liquid foundation that turns into a powder to create a bare skin finished look. It also contains SPF 18 for minimal sun protection. Keep reading for my review and swatches.
I snagged a bottle of Sun Beige (328). Sun Beige is contained in a 0.91oz rectangular shaped glass bottle with a purple cap. I would not carry a bottle like this around in a makeup bag because it’s glass. It is easy to store because the bottle is flat and thin.
The color match was so accurate, even if I took a picture of the swatch I did on my hand, you would honestly think that I have on no foundation.
The foundation formula is very sheer in coverage. The formula is a liquid that instantly turns into a powder once it dries (which is instant). The foundation is so light in fact that it’s not going to cover a thing. When I tried to layer this foundation, my face looked a mess. I have a stray line or two in my face, and this foundation did not do those lines any favors. It was indescribably bad.
Now on the back of the bottle in black and white, L’Oreal does not recommend that you use a brush or sponge and I agree. It’s better to use your fingers to apply this foundation but I just don’t care for forced finger application.
I also think it’s not worth entertaining a SPF 18 product. That provides no protection from the sun.
Overall, if given the choice, this is not a foundation that I would buy again. I think this foundation would be good for someone young, that wants to wear foundation, but honestly has no skin flaws to hide.
L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfection foundation retails for $10.99. You can find it at Rite Aid, Walmart, Target, and any other mass merchant.
