L'Oréal Nude Magique Eau de Teint


There's a new kid on the foundation block who is causing a bit of a stir. L'Oréal Nude Magique Eau de Teint* (€12.99) is the formula twin to Giorgio Armani Maestro which, of course, is a lot more expensive. As the tagline goes, Nude Magique Eau De Teint is a fresh feel foundation that delivers weightless base perfection and, to be frank, I agree wholeheartedly. 

Supposedly lighter than water (have you seen that ad where it floats in a glass of water?!), this foundation contains oils that evaporate on contact with the skin. This is the same technology used it the Giorgio Armani foundation and the finished result is the same; light and comfortable coverage with a satin finish. 


They say that the best way to apply this is with your fingertips but, I honestly don't like getting make-up all over my hands so, I have been using this with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush and it gives a really flawless finish. The below pictures are unpowdered and unconcealed, just to show you the level of coverage it gives.



My freckles are still quite obvious through the foundation which I personally like. The one issue I had with it was that it clung and separated quite poorly on my chin. I'm not sure if I had a dry patch there or was a touch oily but, it did annoy me. 

There are 6 shades which, for a foundation promising nude coverage, is a bit ridiculous. I was wearing the palest shade 100 Porcelain and it was verging on too dark - I suppose that's why you might plump for the dearer Armani option. However, the coverage is so beautiful for a sheer foundation lover like me that I would happily spend a bit longer working this cheaper option into my skin than shell out!

    1. Thanks for following! My skin is largely normal. I don't often suffer with spots or oiliness, just a bit of dehydration in winter time!

  3. I'm really tempted by this foundation as I've been reading lots of good reviews.. I definitely don't need any more foundations in my collection, but I just love lightweight bases and I can never have too many of them! Very pretty make-up by the way.. xx

  6. That looks absolutely gorgeous on you - such a lovely natural finish - like your skin but better!

    I've been wondering about this - think you've just given me the push to go and get one!

    RE: applying it with fingertips - I'm the same, can't stand getting makeup all over my hands - brushes FTW! :D

    Btw, I've got some serious brow envy going on - they look amazing!

  7. This looks amazing on you! I bought this when it first came out and didn't like it too much as I was having a bad skin week, might have to get it out again:)
