We all like to let our skin breath from time to time and go for the natural look, just a bit of a tint to even out the skin and maybe a slick of mascara and lip gloss. In the last year or so, i seem to gravitate to lighter fresher bases that leave my skin natural and look nice in photos (natural makeup here vs full coverage foundation here). I’ve tried to go bare faced a couple of days and every single damn time, i was asked if i was feeling ok. Suppose i really need my makeup.
The new L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint comes in to fill the high street void left by the Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Foundation – a lighter than water, weightless, fresh feel foundation that will even out the skin tone whilst leaving your skin looking like skin. The application is feather light, a few well shaken drops on your finger tips will ensure an even application – or in my case, a few dots on each part of my face and then worked in with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush. Powder can be skipped all together, the finish is matte and a touch of blusher will be sufficient to add dimension to the face. The SPF 18 factor comes handy for winter days, a decent protection for incidental sun exposure.
I got the 140 Pure Beige which is quite a good match for my medium skin, a beige yellow tone shade that seems to blend perfectly with my own color. I enjoyed the water feel, is like a veil of fine airbrushing that covers my imperfections and doesn’t feel like makeup. Come to think of it, Nude Magique would be the ideal starter base for a young person, covers nicely but wouldn’t get you in trouble in school. Thick foundation never looks good!
Im surprised that Nude Magique Eau de Teint wasn’t a summer release, this will be amazing during hotter months, the bottle is small and travel friendly and the light coverage will beautifully enhance holiday freckles.
Have you tried it yet or do you prefer the richness of a tinted moisturizer?
