If you have ever read any of my posts, you know that I am a foundation freak. I love foundation. Mainly because foundations are the key to a beautiful face. They give us glorious coverage, with sheer coverage or full coverage, depending on what we want from them. I love how a good foundation looks on my face, giving me a porcelain complexion. It covers a multitude of sins. Foundation is the key to a great face of makeup!
L’Oréal Paris has some excellent foundations. Their True Match line is especially great. I am very happy with their LUMI line too, as it gives the skin an ethereal glow. They just recently came out with a new foundation called True Match LUMI Cushion Foundation. This foundation comes in a compact and comes in cool, neutral and warm tones with 4 shades in each category. In this foundation I wear the N2 shade. Which is actually a little dark for me but looks okay if I don’t use too much. With this foundation you get a fresh, luminous glow in a tap. An innovative sponge drenched in liquid foundation gives you this glow. Tap a little bit for a fresh, natural glow. Tap on more for more coverage. This foundation give you effortless application that is completely buildable. Formulated with Precise Match™ Technology to match your skin’s tone and texture. The finish is fresh and luminous. Coverage is sheer to medium. It is for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Here are the shades it comes in: C3 Creamy Natural, C4 Shell Beige, C5.5 Natural Tan, C8 Cocoa, N2 Classic Ivory, N3.5 Classic Buff, N4 Buff Beige, N5.5 Perfect Beige, W2 Light Ivory, W3 Nude Beige, W5.5 Suntan and W8 Creme Café.
I find this foundation to be very nice. I like that the coverage starts out very sheer and is buildable to medium coverage. The coverage is a little bit more than medium I would say. It is pretty good. And you get a very beautiful glow to the skin with this foundation. It is possible to use a powder, the LUMI Illuminating Powder is a good choice to give yourself an ethereal glow or another powder to tamp down the glow somewhat, if that is what you really want. If you don’t want to use a powder then leave it be and your coverage should stay stable for a few hours. I feel it is preferable to use a powder over a foundation though. This way the foundation lasts longer. I even used this foundation as concealer under my eyes as it gives me such good coverage. The foundation is as good as any of their other ones, if not better. I just hope that it lasts as long. It is hard to see how much product is in the compact. I don't use the sponge that came with it, I use my beautyblender to put it on. I find that it gives me better coverage.
