The Netherlands is always late with releasing beauty products compared to other EU countries. I saw this cushion popping up everywhere except in the Netherlands. But finally it was coming to us! The L’Oréal Paris team in the Netherlands was looking for people who wanted to test out the new cushion. So I applied, just like 4500 other Dutch girls did. They only selected 40 people and luckily one of them was me!
I received the L’Oréal Nude Magique Cushion in the color #3. It is a foundation which will create a dewy glow finish on your face. Cushion is a new thing in the western world but it has been a ‘thing’ in Asia (South Korea) for a while now. I think Lancome was the first brand to launch the cushion in the west. I already own the Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion in the color W24 from South Korea. So I already know what a cushion looks like and what things I need to look for.
Okay, first of all I think the case looks adorable! The logo and the colors are just the perfect combination and an item every girl wants to purchase when she sees this. In other countries the True Match Lumi Cushion from L’Oréal Paris is already available. The case looks even more adorable than this one!
You get the applicator which is stored in the first layer of the case when you open it. When you pop the first layer open you get to the foundation sponge. Personally I think the holes of the sponge look too big and you risk picking up too much product on your applicator.
The applicator itself looks good to me. The size is just fine and the material feels nice. I think that the ribbon feels a little bit too flexible so you really need to use three fingers to get some grip on the applicator.
I just went for a quick little dab with my applicator into the sponge and what I expected happened. Way too much product. If you are someone that likes a nice coverage it’s fine but I just needed a little to check the color on the back of my hand. Even with my gentle dab that much product came of. If the holes were smaller then the amount would have been much less.
I tapped the applicator on my face. It was really easy to cover my whole face with the applicator and the coverage was nice. For some spots I just needed a bit more product so I applied some layers to get a better coverage. It looks nice and even with no weird looking patches. To be honest I did not expect this product to be this good! I liked the finish, coverage was good and it didn’t look oily on my super oily skin. I did powder on my face but I do that with all my foundations.
I am really surprised that this products worked so well on my skin. The coverage was medium but if you need to hide some spots you can just dab more product on it. They say the cushion gives a dewy finish and they are right. My skin looks healthy and glowy without making me oily (with finishing powder on top). You can purchase this cushion for €17,99, which is a reasonable price for the products and results it brings. The cushion is suitable for all skin types. It has a glowy hydrated finish for dry skin and it doesn’t look oily or feels sticky on a oily skin. My sister also tried this cushion and she has super dry skin. She loved it aswell so I can honestly say we both recommend this cushion to everyone!
