I remember when I first saw the ‘tap tap’ advert for this foundation and I was curious because I’d never seen anything like it. I was kindly sent this to review from L’Oreal and to me, this base is a new revolution and is essentially liquid foundation pressed in a sponge. The idea is that you tap the foundation with the applicator sponge and tap it on to your face to build up coverage so that you can go from light to medium coverage, whatever your preference is really. As a side note, I have this foundation in the shade 01.
The L’Oreal Cushion comes in a lovely compact perfect for taking on holiday with you. When you open the compact you can see where the sponge sits in straight away and then you open up the rest of the compact and that reveals the foundation along with a mirror.
As you will be able to see from the photo below, the L’Oreal Cushion delivers a very natural looking coverage and is very skin like. After application I noticed that the tone of my skin is much more even. I am a big fan of the softly dewy finish my face has after applying this foundation and the best part is that you can easily build to the coverage you need so it would be suitable for all. Although you have a sponge which you can use for application I still tend to prefer taking my buffing brush and tapping it into the product and applying directly to my face.
Overall I was really impressed with this product, it’s perfect for your handbag or travel makeup. My only reservation is that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of product as it’s soaked up in the sponge. I can’t see that it will last as long as a regular bottle of foundation but only time will tell so I could be wrong.
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. The L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation is available for £9.99 here.
