Firstly I would like to wish you a very happy new year. I hope you have a terrific year ahead. Often it so happens that we are in a hurry with no time for makeup all. That’s especially true for a working woman or a college student. In some cases women don’t even bother with putting on makeup, but that’s unacceptable for makeup lovers like us. After years and years of doing research (literally) I finally found the magic product to champion my 5 minutes makeup routine. Behold ….
MAGIC NUDE LIQUID POWDER from L’OREAL PARIS
What is it and who is it for?
Magic Nude is L’Oreal Paris’s revolutionary liquid-powder formula that glides on the skin smoothly and transforms to a fresh, powder-like finish. It feels so light as if you’re wearing no makeup at all! It’s the best foundation product ever! No kidding! You will know that when you use it. Absolutely perfect to nail the last minute natural make up look. It described as ‘bare skin perfecting makeup’ and contains SPF 18. It can be used by anyone above 12 years of age.
The price may range from anywhere between Rs 400 -1200 depending on the quantity, tone and from where you buy it. It’s available in 12 shades. I got it from Amazon.com and had to pay roughly 18$ around Rs 1200 for 27 ml light ivory shade and did not regret it at all. (Always go for one shade fairer than your complexion).
What does the Brand Claim about L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder?
L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup with SPF 18 seriously transforms from a liquid to a soft, powdery finish that provides amazing coverage, but feels (and looks) like you’re wearing nothing. You can layer an illuminating correcting serum under it for an extra-oomph-glow that goes on forever.
How to Use:
I recommend wearing a base moisturizer or a day cream with SPF prior to applying this. I have been using Garnier white complete moisturizer with SPF 19 for years as it suits my skin perfectly. You can use your favorite cream based moisturizer. (Watery or gel based moisturizer will not do here). Then apply the liquid powder in dots over your face. One on the nose, few on the forehead, cheeks, over and under your lips and so on. This will just take a few drops of the product. Finally blend!! You should blend it with your hands as sponge can soak up a bit more liquid than required. And there you have a perfectly beautiful and flawless complexion without any makeup feel.
My Experience with L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder
I have been using it for the past 2 years without any side effect or acne at all. However my skin does feel a bit dry if I apply it directly over my face without any base moisturizer. Also after applying this I recommend others not to use any translucent setting powder over it as that will definitely make your face very dry.
This is seriously an all rounder product and doesn’t need anything else. It stays nicely on my face for as long as 8 hours. I even go to gym wearing this and yet in spite of the sweat it still does not go off. I remove it at night using a simple face wash. I am so impressed by this product that I keep recommending it to all my friends.
