A Modern Woman’s Iconic Handbag

A classic will always be a classic. In a modern day world we’ve embraced designers like Alexander Wang & Philip Lim who have added structure, metal and futuristic character to fashion. Our view of “iconic” has broadened.

These bags make my lust list. They are my icons.

Product Review: L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Foundation with SPF 18

L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powered Foundation with SPF 18

L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powered Foundation with SPF 18

This foundation claims to turn from a liquid from to powder after application. Well, I tried it and I can say that it does. I found this foundation at a CVS near my home. Not all locations have this yet though. I visited 3 locations and only one had the foundation. I picked up 328 in Sun Beige. The color is a little light for me but the next color up was too dark. This is the number one reason I don’t love drugstore foundations, the color range is typically off for me.

At first I hated this product. It felt slimy, it was dripping off my palms, and it stuck to my dry spots. The next day I gave it a second chance and it was much better. I used far less product the second time around and I exfoliated before application. I was able to achieve medium coverage and my face looked matte. It didn’t cover my acne scars but in all honestly not very much does. I’m realistic.

This foundation starts off as a very liquid formula so use very little when applying or it can get all over the place. I would suggest putting your finger at the opening of the bottle and shake. Apply to your face whatever you get on your finger. The finish is a matte so you do not need a powder to set it in. It can give you a sheer to medium coverage. The formula is almost waterproof even through it is not marketed that way so oily skins will love it. This feels like you are applying primer or serum to the skin so it really blends well.

It does last longer than the average foundation but reapplying a little during the day couldn’t hurt you. Plus you don’t even need to carry a powder. If you have major hyperpigmentation, acne scars and dry spots this is not the best option for you. The coverage won’t really get up that high without looking a little cake like. Yes it can get cake like so don’t use too much.

Here are some pictures of how it looks when you pour it onto your palm and after running water over it.

Here is a before and after on me. I used two layers. As you can see it diffuses the look of my pores and evens my skin tone. It did an ok job hiding scars and redness. Not enough for me though.

Overall I would recommend this product but it’s just not a repurchase for me. It doesn’t stack up to my holy grail Nars Sheer Glow. Here is a link to that review: http://wp.me/p39Icy-C

Review’s on the following hauls will be up shortly. Make sure to follow this blog for a review on the Alexander Wang Rocco Bag, the new Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara & the new Covergirl Clean Whipped Foundation.

Work OOTD (Outfit of the day) 06.07.13

Leopard flats, black skinnies and a cardi sum it up for me. Our dress code is business casual but when you work in the Bay Area that just means casual. My version of dress up means I’ll wear a blouse with a cardigan on top. Jeans are a must.
