I don't think that I have ever seen more lip launches in one season than I have so far this year. I can't remember trying more lip products than I have in such a short span of time; the lippies just keep coming. And I am not complaining. L'Oreal recently launched these full coverage high impact colors called L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Lipcolor and "paint" effectively describes this new lip color.Read More
L'Oréal Paris has recently launched one of the first to mass cushion foundations and this is one that you need to take note of. Not only is this foundation a first of its kind for the brand, it's simply a really great foundation. L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation is a buildable liquid foundation, packaged in a way that it is portable, that leaves skin in such a way that it looks sheer, yet luminescent on the skin.
Can you tell that I am really impressed by this one? Well, I am. L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation is pretty mistake-proof from the start, like all cushion foundations are. With the packaging of the liquid embedded into the micro-aerated cushion, the formula is always fresh, allowing you to apply just the right amount of foundation you need.
It's so easy to apply by simply tapping the top of the cushion with the enclosed super soft, non-absorbent, anti-microbial puff. I tried other ways to apply, and honestly, the sponges (or specially designed puffs as they call it) that come with these cushion foundations, really are the best way to apply. After you get just a bit of the foundation onto the puff, blend it out over your skin until you have your desired coverage. If you need more coverage, tap and blend on more. Right out of the compact, the coverage is sheer — like your skin just better — but I use a bit more to hide some redness that I have. It does blur away imperfections and make skin look pretty flawless even without a ton of coverage. The end result is a slight glow or the look of luminescence; a real fresh look to the skin.
There are 12 True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation shades that are broken up into warm, cool and neutral undertones that will blend to match a good variety of skintones. I thinking finding your perfect match may be a little tricky, but start with your undertone then look from there.
The complete shade line-up:
- W2 Light Ivory
- N2 Classic Ivory
- W3 Nude Beige
- C3 Creamy Natural
- N3.5 Classic Buff
- N4 Buff Beige
- C4 Shell Beige
- W5.5 Suntan
- N5.5 Perfect Beige
- C5.5 Natural Tan
- W8 Crème Cafe
- C8 Cocoa
I was sent three shades to try and they were either too light or too dark, but I did blend two of them to give it a try for the day. I liked it enough to run out and buy C3 and N3.5 to see which is a better match for my NC30 skintone. With stores like CVS that have such a great no questions asked return policy, I know that I can try them both at home and return the one that is not right, for a full refund.
