Glow??? More like you came in contact with radioactive material, IMO. I know we all search for products to give us a "healthy glow or radiance", but this stuff was a bit much. I sort of felt like the tin man from the Wizard of Oz. Just a little too much shine for my taste. But love the pump bottle - always love that for a foundation. But, there are better L'Oreal foundations, for me, than this one.
This product really surprised me...in a good way!
I've been using it for a few months now when I bought it more on a whim for summer when I needed a darker shade of foundation. My Revlon foundation just has too much grey tone to it where as this line has warms, neutrals, and cool tones.
The main reason why I am taking the time to review this product is because of all the compliments I get while wearing this foundation! Its has been surprising but great; I get told how healthy and glowing my skin looks (not dull or too oily), and compliments from random friends who don't know what I have been doing to my skin; well this is it!
The only two cons I have is I have combo- dry skin, so yes you do have to touch it up throughout the day with a little powder or blotting sheet, but nothing unmanageable. Maybe for very oily skin it would be but for combo I say its worth it because of how healthy it makes your skin look! The other con is because it does need a few touch ups and it being luminous its not the longest lasting foundation. I mean it will get you a good 4-5 hours and then after that not be perfect but its still on your face and looking decent,doesn't melt away or anything weird. The reason its a con for me is I work full time and usually have things after work so its nice when a foundation just lasts a good 10hrs honestly! Maybe with less busier life styles it is fine though :)
The pump is great, the packaging is nice...maybe a little pricey for a drugstore but it works well so I try to wait until there is a coupon or sale but yeah an overall great foundation especially if you have to only wear make up for 4-5hours a day, or you just want something to make you look healthy and great!
At first, I hated this foundation. After using it for a couple weeks, I like it a lot more. I was applying way too much and not blending it properly. Now I've gotten better at it, and this foundation gives me a medium coverage without looking cakey. It actually looks very natural. It is a bit pricey for a drugstore foundation, but for the quality of the product and packaging, as well as the amount in the bottle, it is well worth the price.
Although I have dry skin, I set this foundation with a powder and use a setting spray. This is especially important under the eyes... this foundation plus a concealer is very wet and will settle in my lines if I don't set it with powder.
If you have oily skin DO NOT buy this. Try the original true match liquid foundation instead.
First of all I will say that this is definitely not suited for COMBO or Oily skin types at all! I have combo skin and this just looked awful. Right after applying this it was SUPER OILY in a bad way, not in a good "DEWY" way. Powder does not look good over this either, since it tends to CAKE UP BIG TIME. This turns to a slimy greasy mess during the day and I couldn't wait to wash if off! Also, this settled in my pores immediately and made them look huge and obvious compared to other foundations. If you have large pores this will not cover them or minimize them, it will HIGHLIGHT THEM. : (
This only offers LIGHT COVERAGE, so if you need a lot of coverage don't even bother purchasing this foundation. I used it with a beauty blender. I have MAC NC15 skin color and I initially tried the W1/2 and it was too light. I later tried the N1/2 color and it was WAY too peachy and orangey. The neutral colors are definitely not neutral, they lean peachy. So in order to get my shade I would probably have to mix W1/2 with N1/2. I am going to try to mix this with the cover girl stay fabulous and see if its less oily and greasy. Overall, I would only recommend this foundation for someone with DRY skin.
As soon as I put this foundation on I disliked it. I think it actually brings out my fine lines out. My eyes are watering too. I stopped using L'Oreal foundations many years ago as I was having an allergic reaction under my eyes. I don't think L'Oreal makeup is for me. My skin is very oily especially in the summer. The only think I really like about this foundation is the pump. That's it.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I was totally no drugstore until this foundation came into my life. I spent my money on other high end foundations and never found something I liked. I bought this at Ulta on a whim and I'm glad I did! It blended perfectly into my skin and it doesn't make me oily at all! I havent broken out and the price is great! I usually try to stock up when they have BOGO at CVS or on drugstore.com when they have their sales as well. I will definitely recommend it to all and repurchase over and over again!
Omfg this is perfect. I need more of these. I find that it's not dewy (thank god) but I adds the perfect amount of glow and perfection. It covers well too! This is my holy grail!
I really thought I loved this product...that is until I misplaced it and had to use what I had left of my garnier BB cream. While the Lumi left my face moisturized to the point that I didn't even need a moisturizer (it has a built in SPF) I really had a hard time getting it to soak into my skin, it just kinda laid there and became streaky. My boyfriend also complained that when he kissed me, it rubbed off onto his nose and clogged his pores (oops!) For now, I think I'm going back to my BB cream, I'm pretty sure it even covers better than the Lumi foundation, which is really saying something.
This foundation has a nice slip to it when applied but the formula does not stand up to humidity and shifts and slides off my face after only a few hours. The finish is a somewhat dewy-satin look but the coverage is lacking. 1.0 oz glass bottle. SPF 20. The pump is sanitary and dispenses enough for my entire face in one pump. Rather expensive for a drugstore brand. The lightest shade I could find was at Target, W1-2 porcelain-light ivory, which is almost too dark and too yellow for me. This foundation would be better suited for a drier climate and for those with dry or mature skin, definitely not for acne prone or combination skin. Lancome's Photogenic Lumessence is a superior alternative with a better selection of light shades however it's more expensive. I would not buy the Loreal Lumi again.
just started using this product yesterday. I saw it used on a You Tube video tutorial on how to have a flawless finish as far as foundation. I am almost 52 years old and get a lot of compliments on my complexion . I am pleased with this product. It was light weight , but the coverage was fantastic. I applied it with a brush.
