I really wanted to love this. It came with a pump, the color was perfect, it is very light for those days i was too lazy to put on my "full face" makeup. But sadly, it broke me out. I'd still recommend because it is a really good light weight foundation and on my oily skin, although it broke me out while I was wearing it, it didn't make me any oilier and it has a beautiful finish.

I just switched to L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation from L'Oreal Infallible because I can no longer find the Infallible. I have very oily skin and was a little hesitant going with a luminous foundation. It went on much smoother than Infallible so it was easier to apply. I also don't have to use as much as I did with Infallible. (which I love!) I use a primer (Not the usual. I use Milk of Magnesia. Google it, it's awesome. Oil control!) I also use powder after applying my foundation. The powder took away most of the luminous but that's okay because I don't like oily looking skin. BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU, my face was so smooth and I didn't have to "powder my nose" like I usually had to, about every hour or so. I went 8 hours without powdering! The color is perfect and has great coverage. Also, it stayed on my face. A slight rub did not take it off. I am very very happy that I tried this foundation and that I liked it this soon after. I will definitely repurchase it.

I started using this foundation quite a few months ago and it seemed ok at first but i started to notice that it wears off really easily and i saw that my face looked really greasy and it didn't look as if i had any coverage at all :( on a positive note though it gives a dewy sort of look although it is quite shiny and the colours seem okay so if your looking for lightish coverage and this gives off what a tinted moisturiser would give you as it didn't cover my blemishes that well maybe a bit i don't think i'll be buying this again i think i'll stick to bourjois.

I had to go four shades darker to get my actual match but I really dont mind. I look like a W1-2 but W5 looks perfect on me.This foundation replaced my expensive Channel foundation. I usually don't like drugstore foundation but after trying this out on a date with my boyfriend and getting compliments on how pretty my skin looked! Heck yes! Also, my skin looks better! I apply using a large foundation brush (two pumps will do). Then top off with some Channel translucent powder(becase thats what I've got at the moment). IT DOESN'T LOOK CAKEY WHATS SO EVER!!!

I got the L'Oreal Lumi Magique foundation to try out, and was really excited about it. But I was SO wrong!
Let me start with the good things about this foundation :
The first time I put it on, I was quite pleased with the result and continued to use the for the next 10 days. It gives a nice coverage and because i have rather dry skin, I like my foundations to give a glowy/devy look, so this was perfect because of the brightening and dewy effect, thanks to the shimmer in the foundation. The foundation applies nicely, but does go patchy in the day. On my skin it lasts a good 8 hours., applied at 7 in the morning.
Now to the bad stuff:
In the 10 days (plus/minus) I began getting some little bumps on my forehead, which has never occured to me before. In the time I was wearing the foundation, my skin felt horribly itchy after some hours of wear! I just wanted to wash it off, but still wanted to give the product a fair chance. So I just stuck with the itchyness.
But the worst it yet to come: By 10 days, I just could not stand this foundation any more. I noticed a HUGE change in the condition if my skin. My skin now felt oily, I had bumps on my forehead and I was left with the biggest rash and breakout on my left chin with cystic pimples! I have never experienced anything as bad and painful!
A good six monts later, I still have a breakout on my chin, despite changing my foundation to BareMinerals, keeping a healthy diet, exercise etc. I am beginning to notice an improve now, and my current cleanser and some oatmeal masks has really helped.
I didn't think I have sensitive skin, but this is just a horrible and nasty foundation. If you have skintype like mine (dry/combination and apparently sensitive) please stay clear of this!

I love this foundation!
long lasting, even in the summer
suitable for my combination skin
great finish, luminous
very good coverage
couldnīt find the right color.. I am NC-20-25, but rather on the neutral side. The lightest color I can find in my country is N3. I can use it in the summer, but it was too dark for the winter. I suppose my winter color would be N2.

When I first used this product, it went on well and the coverage was great. However, as the day progressed, my face felt very greasy and every time I touched my face due to an itch, I'd end up having greasy foundation on my fingers. I only used a small amount of the product so I was astounded after seeing how oily it had become. HOWEVER... Recently I had bought a new brush which I use for my foundation. It is the ELF Flat Kabuki Powder Brush which you can use to buff in liquid foundations. Ever since using this brush, the foundation has stopped going oily and the coverage has improved dramatically. So I think that the tool used for application significantly impacts its staying power, coverage and appearance on the skin! I now use this foundation every day in conjunction with the brush and absolutely love how it makes my skin look!

I searched all over for my shade and finally found it at RiteAid. I wanted so badly to like this foundation but after trying it for a week it's just not for me. I loved the finish at first, but after a few hours my dry skin looked like a shiny grease ball! I tried different application techniques and various brushes, sponges and setting powders but I always got the same result...super shiny face as the day wore on. I'm so disappointed because the color match was perfect! I don't get it...my skin is not oily to begin with and I've never had a problem like this with other foundations. I'm sticking to my CG tone rehab. That one surprised the heck out of me and I love everything about it!

I wish I could give this a 3.5. Since I can't I'm rounding it up.
This is a fantastic foundation. I apply it and it gives good coverage. I don't want to call it full 'cause it doesn't hide everything. It hides a lot though. It evens out my ruddy skin and blotchy skin. I love the glow that this & some foundations give and accept them. Some people, especially those who are oily or like a matte finish, will not like this. It gives a dewy looking finish from far away but up close you can tell it's more of a satin. I adored this foundation until I wore it to work. I need something that can last a whole work day. This did not even last when set with silica (which can keep my make-up on through 90f degree heat). That is my one gripe with this foundation. My skin is finicky so most of the times when I try a drugstore foundation it cakes and looks awful. This is one of the few that didn't and had coverage. I just can't get it to stay past 5hrs on me. Which sucks 'cause I need it to last a good 10hrs. I've left my rating so high 'cause I think others would enjoy this. I'll still use it for those small period of times when I run errands. It covers so much that I'm sure if I apply another layer under my eyes it'll cover a good chunk of the circles (I wore just this foundation & the Maybelline Dream Lumi- more of a highlighter for me). Just to give you an idea of the coverage.

Packaging is great, nice pump. Good coverage and easy to blend. I bought this in C3 and it matches my skin tone perfectly. I set this foundation with Mac studiofix powder and it lasts all day. Very happy with this product and I will definitely repurchase.

*** I've edited this review and it's lost a lipstick. This foundation is just too 'shiny' ****
OK so I bought this foundation brand new on Ebay for just Ģ7 (I had tested it in Boots for shade matching). I love that it has the pump and nice bottle and it feels lovely when you apply it to your skin.
I've only worn it twice so may have to change my review later but so far:
Day 1 applied with fingertips and I was really impressed!
I had used Chanel Pro Lumiere and at first I thought this stuff was every bit as good - illumanating, smoothing, glowy.
I made a mistake though - I put a slightly shimmery powder (mineral powder with mica in it) on top to set it. It looked great indoors, but when I checked my face in car rear view mirror, it was like, mega-shiny! Looked ridiculous...and also after the first couple of hours, the coverage wore off.
Day 2 applied with fingertips and set with a mattifying powder (Corn Silk). Much better - not so madly shiny and iridescent and it also seemed to last bit longer. But after 8 hours or so, it had mostly disappeared and the flaws in my skin (redness, acne scars) were visible.
I also bought a shade that is too dark (Gold Linen) which is always offputting in a new foundation, so that alone makes me inclined not to give it much of a chance.
On the whole, I would say this is a poor cousin of Chanels Pro Lumiere: doesn't cover as well, nor does it last as long on the skin. But it is a very cheap price and I guess you get what you pay for.
On me, it does look good for the first few hours and in indoor light, so maybe worth keeping as an evening foundation. It's just not lasting enough for me for an every day wear make up.
If I mixed it with a paler and longer lasting foundation, then that might also make it work for me.
I think this make up would be best for women with good skin that doesn't need too much coverage and no oiliness at all. I do have oily patches (combination skin) so that doesn't help the lasting power.

i got N1-2 . Im N3 in mac. Im sad the color range isnt as light. If ur a NC15 or lighter you are gonna have issues finding a match. Just too dark.

I love this foundation for everyday use. I don't need much coverage so this is perfect for me, because is not cakey and gives a very healthy look. The bottle has a pump so it's very handy to use, not messy like some foundations that don't have a pump and you always end up losing some product. My tone is w3 golden linen and it blends nicely. My skin is a bit dry so I always put a cream before the foundation to hydrate better. I've been receiving compliments on how beautiful my skin looks. Before I was using the maybelline dream liquid and even though it gives a very nice result for me, it tends to get oily after some time. That's why I'm sticking to lumi foundation now. I definitely recommend it to everyone who doesn't need much coverage but yet wants a polished, sophisticated and healthy look.

I love this foundation! I spent last week in New York, where the temperatures were 40C+ (100F+) with humidity. This product lasted on my skin for over 10 hours when set with MUFE HD powder and I still looked flawless! My skin is combination-oily and I didn't mind the dewiness of this product, it just makes it look very natural. It is quite light in coverage but for any spots that needed a bit extra, I used L'Oreal's Lumi concealer, which I also love. I think this foundation does add a 'lit from within' glow, but it's not overtly glittery or shimmery which is AMAZING - I'm not 12 years old anymore. I will definitely repurchase and recommend this foundation to friends.

Great for a natural look. Bought color n7-8, for 10.99 This foundation is very lightweight and in my opinion not buildable. It seems to be a step up from the tinted moisturizer or bb cream. It is supposed to be good for your skin, Idk about that but I like it enough to add to the options. It's a true match foundation so the have a large range of shades. I haven't used it with the lumi primer but with my revlon primer it stays pretty good, with some powder. After a few hours it hot really oily on my skin even with primer so I need to powder which made my pics horrendous. I Love the packaging. Not the best foundation or the worst, I am going to use it when I think a less is more approach is appropriate.
Update: I find myself reaching for this very often with it being so hot lately, the dewy look works with my overall sweaty glow lol. I love the light weight. I was using revlon whipped but this is more natural and the SPF makes it winner.

1.Medium coverage, does give your face luminosity.
2. Not great for oily skin
3. Shade range is awful, I had to buy W3 which is 2 shades darker than my skin, and W1-2 is 2 shades lighter than my skin. I had to buy both and mix.
4. Overall a good foundation, probably best for winter due to its moisturizing feature.

In Canada this is marketed as L'Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup SPF 20. I purchased this at Walmart for approximately $17 in the shade W1-2 Porcelain Light Ivory which is a good match for my complexion. For reference I wear MAC NC15, Bourjois 51 Vanille Clair, Revlon Colorstay in Buff, Vichy Dermablend in Opal, Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Ivory Rose, NARS Deauville, and Revlon PhotoReady in Vanilla.
I'm very disappointed that this foundation just didn't work for me and my needs. I love the elegance of the bottle which has a pump, the good colour match, silky blendable formula, dewy finish, and that this product contains SPF. I just found this foundation didn't deliver in coverage or durability of wear. The coverage I found to be sheer to light and not buildable without feeling heavy and looking cakey. In terms of wear this didn't last more then 2 hours on my combination skin before it looked greasy, smears, and began to sink into my pores and fine lines. I tried numerous ways to apply this foundation including different moisturizers, primers, and setting powders, but nothing I tried seemed to help.

I love L'oreal true match foundation so I saw this and immediately bought it.
I was impressed by the pump style bottle, and of course figured it would be similar to true match.
I got the N1-2 color (I'm N1 in the true match) but this was slightly orange on me, oxidized a bit after applying too.
I was shocked at how sheer it went on, it just looked like a tinted moisturizer at first. I added more to get some coverage and the result was not very good. It made me look like a grease ball (even though I have dry skin) and it never really 'set' so it just smeared off (and onto mine/my kids clothes) after a few hours. I like a dewy finish foundation but this was just too much.
It also irritated my skin horribly so back it went.
For $22 CAD you can find much nicer foundations than this.
If you want a very sheer glowy foundation and you have dry skin, you might like this. Just don't try and pile it on like I did- it's a disaster!

This product is AMAZING.
I've been using Lancome's lumiere foundation for about 2 months now, and I love the product but I ran into two problems.
1. I got tanner because of the warm weather
2. It's expensive!
When I saw his product at the grocery store I was skeptical since I have never successfully found a drug store foundation. But this one is almost identical to Lancome's Lumiere! My shade is generally very hard to match as well, but I found the perfect shade! I am C5 and the coverage is flawless! For $11.99 you really can't go wrong with this product. It is great!

This foundation gives a great even coverage and a soft focus glow! It feels light on the skin, but I wouldn't recommend this to people who have oily skin as it adds dewiness. It makes my skin feel smooth, soft, and silky, and contains SPF 20. However, it does slightly reflect light in the sun and it doesn't do very well in the heat. Set with powder to make it last! I like that it comes with a pump, overall, great perfecting foundation!
