New L'Oreal Foundations for Women of Color

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

As a women of color blogger, I think it's my duty to share products that are universal. Both foundation have shades ranging from fair to dark. In this post I am going to focus on the deeper tones.

I feel like a kid in a candy store talking about these foundations. Mostly because I know that they will work for some of my readers. If it won't work for you, I know its a brand that you can suggest to your friends or client if your an MUA.

The product on the left is the L'oreal Paris Magic Beautifier BB cream in Deep. Try saying that five times fast, it's a mouth full. If you're like me and you don't wear foundation daily, this is perfect for you. This formula is much different than your traditional BB cream because it comes out white and then adjusts to your skin tone. There are a lot of products which  say they do this but they are usually not suitable for dark/deeper tones.


Another factor which makes this product unique is the "luminating" particles in this BB cream.
I currently don't have a product like this in my make up stash.
L'oreal Paris Magic Beautifier BB cream comes in Fair - Light - Medium - Deep

L'oreal Paris True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation 
The words healthy & foundation are usually not words that see you on foundations bottles.
Apparently this foundation has 3 powerful ingredients (40% water, antioxidants, vitamin C & E ) that improve your skin the more you wear it. I will tell you that I have not been wearing this foundation enough to see "changes" but I can give you information on coverage.

The foundation is light and buildable.  For reference this shade is Nut Brown/ Cocoa.

I just came back from a week in the Dominican Republic and I am probably a shade darker.
 Currently this foundation is exactly what I need during the summer.

This foundation comes in 15 shades ranging from light to deep.

  2. Wow! Both of these look nice. I have never seen this foundation. I have oily skin so I'm a bit leery but I would love to try it!

  6. Oh the temptation! I'm currently using BareMinerals, Iman or Revlon Colorstay. Perhaps I might give in if CVS has a BOGO sale soon!
