Despite the texture of this velvety smooth soufflé-inspired product, I can assure you, it’s not a dessert! But it’s amazing how much it resembles one. The soufflé-like texture of this new foundation from L’Oréal Paris is as soft and light as it appears, but that’s not to say it isn’t great at covering up and concealing.
As usual, I apply concealer to problem areas and those annoying zits that seem to rear their ugly heads ever once in a while. Once the major flaws are covered, you can skip to foundation (this is the routine you should adopt with any foundation). I like to apply this one with a triangular-shaped makeup sponge.
Just dab the sponge in the fluffy mixture and very gently pat it down all over the face. Its remarkable texture literally melts onto the face and becomes almost like second skin. If you are careful when applying it, it can be a barely noticeable product. I like to gently dab the sponge all over the face, gently spreading on the makeup as I do so. If you press too hard or apply too much makeup, it will look thick, heavy and caked on. The product is very light and powerful so remember that a little goes a long way.
That also means that you’re $19.99 is going to go a lot further than you think. In this economy, great value is a must. Personally, I like to splurge on select beauty items from time to time, but when it comes to the basics, there is always a way to get it done for less. L’Oréal Paris foundations are known for their outstanding quality and wallet-friendly prices. Don’t suffer from uneven, discoloured or less-than-perfect looking skin anymore. Get your hands on this little lifesaver today!
One last thing: if you’re looking for extremely long-wear or planning on wearing a little more than usual on a hot day this summer, remember to apply a primer first to keep your skin matte and oil-free so the makeup stays in place as long as you need it to.
