L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Foundation
Stunning results, perfect skin tone match.
I am simply amazed by this foundation, I may go as far as saying the Lumi-Magique range are my holy grail of face products. The colour is a perfect match for my skin, which usually when I buy high street brands I tend to find they are too orangey and leave my face and neck looking a different colour. However with this my face and neck are near enough the same colour (which to me is a miracle).
I don't know whether the product is supposed to have high or low coverage but I find it has pretty good coverage, again when combined with the primer I found it covered blemishes enough to only need a little bit of the concealer (which is also a brilliant product).
This gives you a nice subtle glow, there is no glitter in it which I have noticed (I don't like when your face looks too glittery), its more a healthy glow, which my skin has really needed in the current harsh weather, my skin has been looking dull until I found this. When combined with the primer it lasts all day. Currently I have had it on nearly 8 hours and there is minimal fading, the only area I have had to touch up is my nose with a little powder.
Price is a little high for high street however Boots often have decent offers on. If you don't like the dewy glowy look, and prefer a matte look, then this product isn't for you. however so far I have loved it and I would recommend you at least give it a try.

I really like this product. I've always found L'Oreal's products to be not suitable for my skin as I like a light, dewy coverage but this product is perfect for that. It's great applied with a brush but i find you get just the same coverage as with your fingers and a little goes a long way which is great considering how much you actually get with the bottle! I'd imagine it'd last a good couple of months too which is a bonus for the price. Overall, it's pretty great!

This is very similar to 'translucide' which they discontinued years ago. Boy am I pleased they have brought this out! - it gives an amazing dewy finish. My skins looks healthy and glowing, but it also gives a good coverage. This is my new best friend...
