Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup

Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 18

I came across this Foundation at the Drugstore and boy did I get lucky because I was really running in just for some snacks. To be honest though, I always do a quick scan down the makeup aisles to see if anything is new. There was something new and it caught my eye with the "New From LOREAL" Sign and I stopped dead in my tracks. It was a foundation and I thought to myself, "Do I really need a new foundation?". Really I should be blogging on the 10 that I have waiting at home in line like toy soldiers to be blogged on. I couldn't walk away though, something drew me to this foundation. I think it was that it claimed to be a Foundation that "Transforms from Liquid to Powder for the Perfect Bare Skin Finish".

Now I have tried in my days liquid foundations that claimed to leave more of a powder finish, but I was never impressed and it just left a cakey finish. Plus I love the radiance that I get from liquids, I don't have oily skin (except T-Zone) so I don't need a powder, and I feel that you have to prep you skin more for powder (HYDRATE). If you don't have a hydrated canvas to work on, it can leave a horrific look and age you. Now I love to use a good mineral foundation once in a while to change it up. Loreal does make a nice one called "True March Naturale". That is one of the foundations waiting in line for me to blog one. So I thought I will give this new Liquid Powder Foundation a try, since it had been a while, and see how it goes.

So On to the Foundation:

I absolutely love it. It has amazing coverage, so don't be put off by the "Bare Skin Finish". I think when they say that, they mean that it will appear and feel as if you don't have anything on. It leaves the most fresh face finish and it really does not feel like you have it on. Now one to where I think it differs from previous liquid to powder foundations that I have tried. I thought I was going to apply it and it would immediately start to turn from liquid into a powder finish. Than I would just feel all dry and wonder, why didn't I just use a powder. Nope it is different, I apply it with my foundation brush and you don't need much. The bottle says a couple drops and that it all you need. It states to apply it with you fingers directly to you skin. I tried it this way the first couple of times but I prefer a brush for precision, so I tried it with a brush and had not one problem. After you apply it, it leaves this perfect flawless coverage  with a hint of radiance to it with and a subtle powder finish. It is almost as if you applied your liquid foundation, than very lightly powdered you face to set it. I thought to myself Brilliant, because I usually lightly powder my face anyways to help set my foundation. I than ran a test where I did not apply powder over this foundation and wore it all day and it stayed put. I also ran some other tests where I wore it all types of conditions (heat, humidity, with and without makeup, etc.) and it never let me down. It did not even leave me oily in my T-zone, I absolutely think this was because of the slight powder finish. Brilliant!!!!

I applied it all over to the Right of the Swatch so you can see it applied.
I left the edges unbuffed so you could see where.
Looks Much Better on the Face.

Final Thoughts:

I am so happy that I finally found a liquid to powder foundation that actually works. I kinda wish that Loreal had launched this foundation in the Beginning of the Summer! I truly believe the soft powder like finish helps to ward off any oil, which usually occurs more for me in the summer when it's hot and humid out. It also has very nice packaging for a drugstore foundation. I was feeling the bottle and comparing it some of my High End bottles and I was impressed. I would recommend this foundation to anyone. Please let me know your thoughts on it if you try it.
