Review: L’Oreal Lumi Magique Collection.

L’Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation – £10.99*
L’Oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer – £9.99*
L’Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer – £8.49*

One of my favourite “drug store” foundations is L’Oreal’s True Match and I’ve always found their products to be quite good when it comes to quality vs. price so I was keen to try this range.
L’Oreal has recently launched the Lumi Magique range which consists of three products to improve skins overall complexion and give a luminous finish.

The Pure Light Primer has quickly become one of my favourite products. It’s a illuminating primer to give skin a natural glow and a flawless finish. I usually apply this after foundation with my fingers and the result is beautiful, glowing skin. I also like to mix it in to my foundation for a boost.
It leaves my skin looking so lovely and naturally radiant that I haven’t stopped using it since I got it.
If you’re looking for a primer which helps dull skin, then this is definitely worth picking up.

Although I received the shade “dark” in the concealer, I wasn’t aware of this at first and used it under my eyes to conceal bags. I loved it so much that my usual eye products such as YSL Touche Eclat and Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit were left forgotten about in the bottom of my makeup bag. I haven’t touched them in weeks as this Lumi Magique concealer has been my saviour. It’s a really lightweight concealer which conceals dark circles so well. It doesn’t cake or look heavy, but disguises any signs of a late night.
I’ve also used this on blemishes but I think it works best under my eyes. If you suffer from a small amount of undereye darkness, this is for you as it’s a cheap yet high quality way to conceal.

Lastly, I received quite a dark shade of the foundation so I haven’t been able to review this alone. I fake tanned recently and added a bit of this to my usual foundation (EL Double Wear) which gave lovely results. As I’ve already said, I’m a big fan of L’Oreal foundations so I have high hopes for this one. If I didn’t already own over 20 foundations, I would be purchasing this in a lighter shade.

This is a lovely range from L’Oreal, the products have really impressed me and the prices are great also. I haven’t been able to stop using the primer or concealer which is really unlike me as I do own a lot of high end products which you expect to be better quality.

Will you be trying this range?

  • I’ve tested this a couple of times in Boots and I like the coverage. I hate true match, I’m using it at the moment but I find it just sticks to my skin and dry patches.

    I love the lumi magique foundation and now can’t wait to try the concealer. Its a really good range.

    Ria x

  • I found this range really appealing (mainly because of the rose gold packaging!) I’ll probably try out the foundation and concealer 🙂 x

  • Yasmin

    I’ve had a bad experience with True Match foundation. It looks cakey on my skin and doesn’t cover my “imperfections” so I probably won’t try this. Just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for other people so I’m not hating! Xx

  • omg! this concealer sounds amazing! is the rimmel wake up foundation any good? xoxo

  • I might try the foundation, it looks quite good! x

  • I really want to try the primer, I test it every time I go into boots but haven’t been able to justify it! Maybe I’ll use my points and treat myself 🙂 great review x

  • The primer sounds good! I’ve been using the Laura Mercier primer but the thought of a brightening primer sounds promising! i love the packaging for all of these, especially the concealer which I think looks like the By Terry concealer 🙂 xxxx

  • So sad that we dont have the foundation in the states 🙁 just the primer and concealer.

  • I’m loving the Lumi Magique primer at the moment, makes me feel like I look so much healthier when my skin looks blah x

  • You should do a post on all your foundations and powders divided in drugstore vs. high end brands.
    I have recently purchased the rimmel wake me up foundation, and I love it. However it brakes me out somethimes, I think it’s because of the perfume.

  • I really want to try the concealer. X

  • I really need to try this range out 😛 ive heard some really good things about it tbh

  • I really love the packaging of these! Haha, random but still

  • Will definitely try the primer.

    Always looking for my holy grail haha 😉

  • I have this foundation in the lightest shade, but I was completely disappointed by it. It doesn’t blend well with my skin at all! So it ends up looking like I put flour on my skin, it’s annoying. I tried applying it with make-up sponges, foundation brushes & finally with my fingers and the results are all the same. 🙁 I was really excited about it, though.

  • Love all L’Oreal foundations so definitely want to give this a try! The primer and concealer sound amazing xx

  • These sound gorgeous, love the sound of the primer especially!

  • HSK

    This range physically looks amazing but I’ve actually been unsure about L’Oreal as a brand – I know I must be the only one in the world! I tried their anti-shine primer (and am on a mission to finally finish it up so I can try another one) but I didn’t find it to be effective at all! But looking at your post, the illuminating primer looks lovely and I might have to cave and give it a go soon!

  • Think I’ll definately be trying the primer! xx

  • I’ve been look for a good primer so I may give this one a go, they just aren’t very available in the drugstore!

  • The packaging is really luxe for L’oreal isn’t it?

  • I really want to try this primer ! xx
