L’Oreal True Match Lumi cushion

One more cushion foundation review to compare with my first – Physicians Formula ABC cushion foundation SPF50 and to have a fair judgement of the trend.

This is L’Oreal True Match Lumi cushion buildable luminous foundation. Similar format – a cushion drenched in liquid foundation with sheer to medium coverage (no SPF), applied with a puff applicator held in a plastic tray on top of the cushion.

Shade selections are much better. Canada gets 8 shades in the range:- W2 Light Ivory, W3 Nude Beige, W5.5 Suntan
– N2 Classic Ivory, N3.5 Classic Buff, N4 Buff Beige, N5.5 Perfect Beige
– C3 Creamy Natural.
US has 4 additional shades: W8 Creme Cafe, C4 Shell Beige, C5.5 Natural Tan and C8 Cocoa.

N3.5 Classic Buff (right) matches me better than Physicians Formula ABC cushion foundation in Light/ Medium (left).

Coverage is slightly better in the L’Oreal cushion foundation but still sheer. Application is, however. much better, very easily to go on and blend out. I also enjoy that light hint of luminosity on then skin.

And lastly, still the same “smaller size – higher price tag” issue. This Lumi cushion is $25 (0.51oz/ 14.6g, while the standard Lumi liquid foundation is $15 for 1oz/ 30ml), vs. the Physicians Formula version is $21.50 for 0.47oz/ 14ml, with $9 rebate.

It even gets crazier when you branch out to higher brands: Sephora $30 (0.53oz), The Face Shop $39 (0.52oz), MAC Matchmaster $43 (0.45oz), Pur Minerals $49 (0.34oz) and Lancome $49 (0.5oz). Laneige offers the best value – $44 (1.05oz), and even that, cushion foundations are not a stand-alone product for my skin unless the coverage is improved.

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
