I have heard so many good things about this new L’Oreal Paris cushion foundation from the US that I have been desperate to try it out and get all the shades swatched on the blog. And now I have them here to show you. Here’s the low down on the L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation – swatched and applied!!
So I have tried a few different cushion foundations and I really like the concept. It’s basically all about liquid foundation in a compact and it’s a super convenient way to use foundation.

You simply press the applicator into the cushion and then just tap the foundation into the skin. You can go for a light luminous layer, or build it up for a medium coverage. This isn’t a full coverage foundation but I did find it quite skin perfecting.
L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation Before & After
As you will be able to see, the L’Oreal Cushion delivers a very natural looking coverage and is very skin like. The texture of my skin looks very similar in both the before and after photos, yet the tone is much more even, redness is disguised and pores are less noticeable. I really love this softly dewy finish and you can keep layering this up to get the coverage you want without the fear of it going cakey – it is weightless.
This is a perfect foundation for your handba as the delivery system and sponge make it so convenient. Every now and then you can wash out the sponge with warm water and soap and leave it to air dry. When the product starts to run low, L’Oreal suggest flipping the cushion to access more foundation.
My only reservation is that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of product, and I can’t see it lasting as long as a regular bottle of foundation. I will have to see. All in all, I think it’s great and if you want light to medium coverage with a healthy glow finish, this is definitely one to try.
