Everyone loves a bargain and for me finding a foundation I love that costs less than €40 is a double whammy in that department. I found it hard in the past to buy foundations on the highstreet (other than from Bourjois) that would be as good as the high end ones. My new find is the Lumi Magique foundation by L'Oreal, and frankly, I am surprised I haven't picked it up sooner as I have been using the Lumi Magique highlighting pen for ages!
The Lumi Magique foundation is medium to full coverage but still looks very natural (not too dewy and not too matte - just the way I like it!!) It is a foundation that makes you glow from within without the glitter ball face effect, once you blend it it's barely visible and doesn't sit on top of the skin. L'Oreal promises 12h "magical" hold on their website which in my case was more 5-6 hours but that's still good for my combination - oily skin. The rose gold packaging also helps!
I apply this foundation either with a buffing brush if I want the coverage to be quite high or, my preferred and newly discovered method, with a damp sponge which gives a lovely natural effect.
All in all this is my new favourite go-to foundation and I have gotten a lot of compliments on my skin when wearing it. So if you are on the hunt for a luminous but still quite perfecting foundation make sure to check this one out!
L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation costs €16.49 and is available in Boots.
