L’Oreal Nude Magique foundation review – Perfect day foundation to wear to work

I always think that a foundation for during the day should be undetectable and light enough to be comfortable. I want my foundation to have a natural finish that stays on most of the day without touching up because as most of us are busy people running around all day often our main priority is not to touch up our foundation and makeup, so I love something that is easy.
This is an affordable foundation that resembles Chanel VitaAqua with its watery base and bare skin look. The difference is that this foundation dries to a satin finish, and shine free where as the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua has a more radiant finish.
The texture is extremely light so shaking it well can make all the difference in how it applies. As with the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua it is important to shake the foundation for a couple of seconds to mix the foundation. 
It has that ‘ second skin effect’ which makes it a perfect foundation for daytime, as it will look natural and no masking here! It has a good staying power and I don’t feel that I need to re-powder during the day. It has an Spf18 which is great for summer days giving you good sun protection.
Tips : I would say that it is a light coverage foundation that has a buildable to a medium coverage.
If you want to build the foundation use a buffing brush such as the real technique’s buffing brush  ( see here ) or a foundation brush to add another layer of foundation until you reach the desired coverage.
