L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique: Rose Sand

Today I thought I'd do a short blog post on my new favourite high-street foundation. For the last few months, if not nearly a year now, I've been blowing on my pennies on Clarins foundation. It has been one of my makeup staples for a very long time and envisioning my life without it would be like bread with no butter. Due to wedding saving, bills to pay and my outlandish shopping habits, I have landed myself in a realm where I'm strapped for cash. In all fairness, I'm usually a good girl. For every expensive item I have, I also have many budget items. I love a little bit of MAC, but MUA does the trick too. Back to the point...when I went shopping the other day, I had no option but to trawl through the array of drugstore foundations to find a shade and brand that would compare to my holy grail 'Skin Illusion'. Recently a few of my friends have been kicking up a fuss about the L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique. It has been years since I tried any L'oreal products, but my friends advised me that this would be a great money saver in my struggling times. 

Verdict? I love it and it's probably now one of my favourite foundations. For once, a high street foundation hasn't brought me out in spots and the oily, creamy consistency has helped with my dry skin. The coverage is fair and adds a lovely shine to my face - something I've been missing for quite awhile. The 'light infusion' means that when I take my photos, my face is always glowing.  The only issue I have with this product is that a lot of the shades seem the same. I really struggled finding a colour which would suit me the best. In the end I settled for a shade a slightly bit darker than my natural tone, but the warmth makes me look healthy and glowing, something I will not complain about. Price wise, I think for £10.99 it's an absolute steal. I've been wearing this foundation for weeks now and I've really had no complaints. Okay, it doesn't quite stay on the whole night through, but for £10.99 I personally wouldn't expect it to. For people with dry skin and those wanting a glamorous shine, I'd definitely give the L'oreal Paris Lumi Magique a try.
