L’Oreal Lumi Cushion First Impression

Oh man, you know me and my makeup obsession. I have been loving my L’Oreal Lumi foundation and saw the Cushion at CVS – but had NO idea what on earth that meant.  But the packaging was so adorable.  Then, I saw the video from Long Story Short with Megan & Wendy and understood what the Cushion meant.  So, I went shopping.

The L’Oreal Lumi Cushion – oh man. I’m so torn.  I love how easy it is to apply.  I just flip open the lid and use either my beauty blender or the foundation brush from Tarte.  But, it’s SO THIN. I swear the coverage is more similar to a BB cream than a foundation.  I was really thinking it would be similar to the foundation I’ve grown to love.  Nope.  So, I will probably be taking it back because I still have some skin issues and need more coverage than I’m getting.

The Lumi illuminating powder is beautiful.  It does have a bit more shimmer particles than some other brands I’ve used.  But I love the glow it gives.  Oh man. and the shadows.  I just was not a huge fan. I have other shadows that I love more.  And even with their sale, I just couldn’t justify keeping them.  I did keep the lighter/brighter Revlon lipgloss and wore it the other day with a lip liner.  That helps prevent the bleed of color so much.  I think it’ll be great in photos (I used it with this one)
