Lóreal Paris Mat Magique All-in-One Matte Transforming Powder REVIEW
RATING :- 6.8 OUT OF 10
Having oily skin, i usually want a matte look to cope up with the oiliness and greasiness of my skin. So i am always on the hunt of matte makeup, and as you all know, compact powders help one a lot to mattify the makeup, so i am fond of pressed powders a lot. Today i got the Lóreal Paris Mat Magique All-in-One Powder. It costs INR Rs 399 for a pack of 6g.

The outer cover is made up of cardboard and pink and black in color. Inside you get a transparent plastic case with some designs made up of pink color. The packaging is just plain, nothing great. You wont definitely get a Lóreal feeling once you open the box, however you need to stay close to reality and have the price tag in mind. Now the case got two openings, first is the compact powder slot, and when you open the back side, you get a small mirror and sponge. The puff i think is of no use, as i prefer to use compact powders with a large powder brush or kabuki brush than sponges or puffs. Anyways, the Lóreal Paris Mat Magique All-in-One Matte Transforming Powder is travel friendly and quite small so will get inside most makeup bags.
Swatch of Lóreal Paris Mat Magique All-in-One Matte Transforming Powder
I got Lóreal Paris Mat Magique All-in-One Powder in shade G2 Golden Ivory. There are quite a number of choices to make when it comes to shade, which will suit the Indian skin tones. Thats really a nice thing. The compact powder is very light-weight and is great if you are just casually heading out and just need something light on your face apart from sunscreen. Also that it contains SPF is really good, since you can simply opt out your sunblock lotion if you are wearing this, very convenient. I simply would disagree on the poreless part and that it covers imperfections, no it does not work as a cover-up concealer, and wont be working as a foundation even. If you have big pores, this wont cover up, be assured about it. If you keep piling on the powder thinking it might cover up pores, then it will clog your pores, and nothing else. You just need a simple single layer of the face powder, and it will keep the face matte for an hour or so, thereafter you would need touch-ups.
The Lóreal face powder does not keep up the claim of giving 12 hours matte look. At least not for oily skinned people like me. It might give a bit of instant brightness or whitness i would say, however if applied properly it wont cast any whitish shade. Lóreal Paris Mat Magique All-in-One Matte Transforming Powder is a budget-friendly compact powder, and you can buy this one not only because its from Lóreal brand but it does the work well. It might not stay for a long time, but with frequent touch-ups you can handle the issue. I wont be repurchasing the same product though as i feel i have not found my perfect compact powder yet.
