L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation Review & Swatch-
Hello pretty ladies!
Only a few months after Maybelline launched cushion BB & cushion foundation here in India, L’Oreal decided to launch their counterpart cushion foundation which is better rated than the Maybelline one so I had to try both out & decide ^_^ L’oreal has a host of different tones & shades which is definitely brownie point no.1 above Maybelline & they have neutral, cool & warm shades separately *_* I was matched with W2 which is Light Ivory.
What L’Oreal Says-
Introducing new True Match Lumi Cushion by L’Oreal Paris, a liquid foundation infused in an innovative sponge that delivers the perfect amount of makeup.

My take on the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation-
The packaging is the same as the Maybelline one, only with different color accents- The perfect sleek compact with 2 compartments– the 1st one with a big mirror & soft sponge & the next with the cushion saturated with foundation secured with a tight plastic lid 🙂 Easy to use, carry & store *_*
The texture is even lighter & airier than Maybelline if that is even possible! Super lightweight, very very easy to apply & blend into skin & it just vanishes into skin- literally! It renders a smooth,radiant finish without feeling greasy/heavy at all & makes you forget that you have anything on your skin*_*
The cushion foundation provides semi-sheer to medium buildable coverage- the perfect fix for ladies who just want to slap something on face & go out on a daily basis instead of the rigorous base makeup routine 😛 In short lazy people like me would be addicted ^_^ Again, my fingers blend the product way easily than the sponge provided but the sponge does provide a more opaque finish & better coverage. I have a few acne spots here & there & I love the sheer finish this foundation provides as my skin looks all healthy & glowy <3 It’s perfect for ladies with normal-dry skin but ladies with oilier skin would be better off setting this with a compact.
L’Oreal scores the highest with their shade range where Maybelline fell face down & I was spoilt for choice whether I should pick up a C3 or W2 ^_^ W2 or Light Ivory is the 2nd lightest shade they have I believe, & despite the W (warm) tag, I mostly got neutral undertones with this shade & it blends seamlessly into my skin <3
The staying power is great & it stayed intact on me for 6-7 hours till I came back home & removed it. It did not break my skin out or make my skin drier/oilier.
Pros of the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation:
1> Lovely sturdy & convenient compact packaging- easy to use, carry & store.
2> Texture is very lightweight, so easy to apply & blend.
3> No heavy/greasy feel.
4> Provides a natural healthy glowing finish to skin <3
5> Sheer-medium buildable coverage 🙂
6> Great shade range 🙂
Cons of the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation:
Does not come with sun protection 😐
Swatch of the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation-
My Rating: 4.8/5!
Do I recommend the L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation?
L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation is a boon for ladies who just want a radiant healthy finish to their skin on a daily basis along with some coverage ^_^ Easy to apply & carry, L’Oreal has a ton of shades to cater to every complexion & that is where it scores higher than Maybelline 🙂 Recommended!
