I have been hearing about this foundation all over the place and was quite curious about the “lumi” foundations that are all the rave right now!
Becca Cosmetics released their Aqua Luminous Foundation recently and it has had an overwhelmingly positive response however the $54 price tag can be considered by most, quite expensive. I wanted to find a happy medium both in cost and quality so I set out to try this Lumi Cushion Foundation!
L’Oreal released their Lumi Cushion Foundation around the same time and I was able to find it at my local Walmart for $19 (it is also available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $24). It also comes in the liquid foundation form which I have yet to try! Initially I was hesitant about using the cushion and the applicator it comes with, this is the first cushion foundation I have used and it was a bit intimidating to try but I am so glad i did! My instincts were wrong about the cushion foundation but I still prefer to use my damp beauty blender to apply it!
The consistency of this foundation is beautiful, the glow is radiant and I love how it applies to the skin with ease. I bought it in the colour N2, it comes in three different tones of cool, neutral and warm with 8 different shades, talk about versatility! The other thing I love about this foundation is the buildability! This foundation can be applied as a light coating over the skin or you can continue to apply coats for a more full coverage finish! I have shown the stages below of the application, picture #1 is no makeup, picture #2 I have applied the Lumi Foundation and the last photo is my full makeup!
I would not recommend this foundation for anyone who has particularly oily skin as this foundation is intended to give you that glow and combining the two may appear greasy.
This will definitely be my go to foundation this summer and I can’t wait to buy it in a shade darker for my hopefully more tanned skin!!
Hope you guys enjoyed!!
