L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation Review & Swatches

I am a foundation junkie , I admit that. I also love online shopping and as soon as i see a new launch esp an interesting drugstore foundation like L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation. I get excited and end up purchasing it . Let me say this for least that buying shoes and foundations online is very,VERY tricky. Either you get a perfect fit or match or its gonna be a huge miss. 
Keep on reading for my detailed review on L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation .

  • - Safe for sensitive skin
  • - Does not clog pores.

I will be reviewing L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation in shade N5.5 .For reference i am medium to tan and this shade doesnt suit me . I saw the swatches online and I knew W 5.5 was going to be a better match but i don't know what got into my mind or maybe i became way to excited , I ordered the wrong shade.
The product comes in eye catching rose gold packaging, There is a reveals sponge for application inside once you open the lid,and then you have a mirror and the cushion underneath.The sponge is your typical sponge which is good for touch ups .You can use the sponge itself or any brush of your preference. I use my beauty blender for natural coverage or any flat top foundation brush if i am looking for more coverage.
The foundation claims to have sheer to medium coverage. But i don't think its medium coverage. It is definitely sheer because some of my face imperfections like few spots were still little visible. and The formula is soft and creamy. Its a hybrid between liquid and cream. It goes on smoothly and sheer. I had to reapply few times to get the desired finish, which did put me off. But i like how it made my skin healthy and little dewy.So i feel this foundation will be ideal for those who struggle with dry skin. If you have better skin with lesser problems , you will absolutely love this foundation.The formula doesnt accentuate dry patches or fine lines.
The shade was a big mismatch . I bought N 5.5 which probably has neutral undertone and that is the reason it look so ashy on me.
The price is hefty. I mean its approx $16-$17 ,and for drugstore foundation , it is pretty ecpensive. But as we know loreal prices are mostly on higher end .

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation N5.5 -Swatch

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation is ideal for people who are looking for natural dewy coverage.The packaging is adorable . I recommend it to someone with dry skin . The foundation applies beautifully and smoothly. The sponge is ideal travel companion for application or quick touch ups.I admit that t is very expensive for a drugstore foundation. But i like the concept for cushion foundation and i know i picked the wrong shade, so i will be repurchasing the w5.5 in coming days and will update this post with swatch and comparison.

Its been ages since i did a haul post. Infact its been ages since i did a proper post. But things have started to get bit normal but one hell of roller coaster and i am trying to keep up . I love blogging and anything beauty & fashion. I haven't hauled alot this year but still i did some damage which i will keep sharing in my upcoming posts.

This week the few things arrived at my doorstep are as below :)
  • Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in  Double Dare (cocoa blush )
  • theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in Honest (Warm coral)
  • Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray in Lavender  
I am so much in love with liquid long lasting lipsticks that i couldnt stop myself from buying more. I love KVD ,so i had to get the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in  Double Dare, which complements my medium to tan skintone.I usually stay away from anything coral , let it be a blush or a lipstick but i had to try
theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in Honest which is a warm coral, and doesnt make me look more tanned.

 I am really into setting sprays these after a sucesful love relationship with MAC FIX+ which i normally use to make my super dry skin look healthier and dewy. I was bummed that i couldnt get my hands on fix plus+ scented versions but as soon as i saw the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray comes in Lavender scent, i knew i have to have it. I havent tried it yet but scent is strong.

Thats all folks, till i share another haul soon :)

Anniversary Collection: Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate

First introduced in 2011 to mark the 10th anniversary of Rimmel and Kate’s relationship, Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate was the model’s debut make-up line. Loved by Rimmel girls everywhere, it’s a global phenomenon with thousands of lipsticks sold over five years. Building on this success the anniversary collection stars four lust-worthy shades – two reds and two nudes - each inspired by a classic Kate look.

Lasting Finish Lipstick By Kate

  • Smooth, creamy texture for comfortable wear all day long.

  • #51 Muse Red 
  • #53 Retro Red 
  • #55 My Nude 
  • #56 Boho Nude

  • Muse Red #51 is a rich, head-turning crimson that evokes Kate’s effortless elegance on the red carpet. Kate comments: “When I’m going somewhere special, a bold red lip makes me feel ‘done’. I created Muse Red for that perfect blend of drama and sophistication.”

  • Exuding vintage glamour, Retro Red #53 is a sumptuous berry red that reflects the revamped ‘40s and ‘50s retro style that Kate adores.

  • Boho Nude #56 is a warm caramelised nude that complements Kate’s laid-back boho look. She says: “My secret to pared-back boho beauty is natural, earthy shades. I love how the caramel tones of Boho Nude lipstick warm my skin.”

  • Taking inspiration from Kate’s everyday street look, My Nude #55 is a beige nude shade for understated casual chic. Team with a blazer for a dash of Kate’s nonchalant cool.
