For a long time I’ve been interested in Korean cushion foundations and was almost about to order one on a Korean web site, when I saw the L’Oreal cushion foundation on the shelf of the store. And my acquaintance with such products I decided to start exactly with L’Oreal.
So today I want to share with you my opinion about the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation.
Nt Wh of the product is 14.6g
Made in Korea
It’s very cute and stylish, I can even feel something Korean in it. It’s made of plastic and in soft pinky shade. The opening lid with mirror is in purple metallic color.
Opening the top we can see a big and good mirror inside and a cute sponge with pink ribbon to hold it. There is a special section for a sponge.
The sponge is very thick, I’m absolutely delighted with it. It’s very easy to take and apply the product on the skin with its help.
Let’s open another top and here we can see the protecting paper, which you need to remove.
Remove the seal and finally we find our cushion sponge filled with foundation fluid.
I have it in #4 color.
I was afraid that the color would be too dark for me, but my fears turned out to be groundless as the cushion adjusted to skin color very well.
At the back of the packaging there is a sticker with advice on how to apply the product.
The list of ingredients:

(F. I. L. C179138/1).
My skin is oily with enlarged pores, there are post acne spots and some pimples.
My experience with the cushion foundation:
The product is taken out by pressing the applicator on the cushion sponge to release the liquid foundation. For me the best way to apply it, is by tapping the applicator on the skin, that way the product applies very evenly.
The fluid is of medium coverage so it won’t cover any significant blemishes, so concealers really helps me out. I want to note that the foundation evens the skin tone and hides pores, it doesn’t settle into fine lines. The finish is dewy and glow, so I think it’ll be perfect for dry skin. I, in my turn, have to use powder.

As you can see from the picture the cushion foundation evens the skin tone greatly, it gives my face healthy glow, hides imperfections, but against big red spot under my right eye the foundation couldn’t do anything.
+light coverage, I don’t feel the product on my face
+evens my skin tone
+gives healthy look and natural glow to the skin
+applies easily and very quickly
+doesn’t clog pores
-it won’t hide much seen imperfections
-not much of the product in the packaging
In general, I liked the product. I love such products with medium coverage (as I use concealer where I need it). The cushion foundation evens my skin tone, adjusts to skin color, gives healthy glow, doesn’t clog pores, has SPF 29 and is absolutely weightless on the skin.
I think that the price is high. I paid my money for a sponge with a fluid inside. I’m more used to foundations in tubes. I don’t feel sorry about the money I spent, as I use the product quite often. But I don’t think that I’ll buy it again.
I don’t actually understand this type of foundations because they aren't economical in use.

Thank you for your attention.
