Drugstore makeup has come a long way! I’m excited to share the latest foundation that I’ve been using for the past few day. It’s the L’Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. Let’s start by taking a look what this is. As you can see from the label, it’s a buildable luminous foundation. The retail cost is $14.99 – $16.99 for .51 ounce, depending on where you make your purchase. It can be purchased at all drugstores, Target, Walmart, etc. As you know, you can always find coupons on drugstore brands to make this foundation even more affordable.
L’Oreal describes this foundation as follows:
“a liquid foundation infused in an innovative sponge that delivers the perfect amount of makeup. Our luminous refreshing formula creates sheer to medium coverage. Tap a little for a fresh natural glow, tap on more to build a new level of luminous coverage. Liquid foundation + tap on applicator puff gives you convenient on-the-go coverage. “
The Lumi Cushion Foundation is available in 12 shades. There are a variety of cool, neutral and warm shades. It is designed for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The packaging is designed to be travel and on-the-go friendly.
To apply this foundation I simply used the enclosed puff and gently pat the product on to my skin. I did use more than one layer to cover some blemishes and age spots. I followed with bronzer and blush.
Verdict: I think this foundation is great! It is lightweight. It provides ample coverage for my blemishes and age spots. I love that it can be built up for added coverage wherever needed. I used the puff applicator that is included. It worked very well. I prefer to wash it between uses to avoid bacterial growth rather than store it inside the compact. I have dry skin this time of year and was able to wear this foundation all day long with the use of a light layer of moisturizer before applying the foundation. I didn’t necessarily think my skin was luminous, but it did look almost airbrushed and very natural. The packaging of the product is perfect for travel and on-the-go touch ups. In my opinion, this foundation is a winner and the fact that it’s readily available at the drugstore is an added bonus.
