I have very dry skin and usually have an extremely hard time finding a good over the counter drugstore foundation. So when I saw someone do a review on the L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle foundation I had to give this a try. L’Oreal has a new line of makeup that is whipped and comes in a small jar. They have the foundation for oily skin, combination skin and the dry skin called Magic Smooth Souffle foundation. This is a whipped mouse that is a bit darker in the bottle then on the skin.
My normal makeup shade is usually the lightest fair or Ivory. The review that I had read on this foundation said to go one shade up due to the bottle color not being correct. So I took the advice of the reviewer and went one color up to 518 called Natural Buff. This was a perfect color match and the reviewer was correct on the color and the bottle being a bit off.
I love this foundation, it does go on a bit dry so you will need to wear a good moisterizer and a foundation primer. They do sell one from L’oreal to wear specifically with this foundation but I use the prime time from Bare Minerals and it works really well together. This foundation goes on easily after the moisterizer and the primer have dried on the skin. I use a foundation sponge and make sure to throughly spread it evenly on my skin. I used to have issues with foundation that would cake under my eyes and make me look older. I feel well hydrated with this foundation and no longer have dry lines around the eyes. It lasts all day long and I even have to apply a light power because of all the moisture that I get from it.
I highly recommend this foundation to all women who have dry skin and especially to those that are over 35. This foundation retails for around $15.95 and the primer is $12.95. You can purchase this foundation at any drugstore or major department store like Walmart. Target, Walgreens, CVS, Ulta and also available to purchase online.
