I've read good things about the L'Oreal Lucent Magique Liquid Foundation (or Lumi Magique in the US) and I'm so happy to announce that it's finally here in Manila! Lucent Magique is all about "light-infusion" or brightening, but without the obvious accompanying shimmer. I immediately used the foundation as soon as I got it, and mark my words, I sniff a new favorite low-cost base!
The liquid foundation is only P845. Very, very affordable yet it feels so high end. It reminds me of the Lancome Teint Miracle, actually. Same finish but the Lancome I think is more long-lasting.
Another interesting product is the Lucent Magique Concealer Pen. It's only P545 and works much like my favorite Clinique Airbrush Concealer, although the peg is the YSL Touche Eclat. Same banana. It's a highlighting concealer for dark circles and shadowy corners of the face - just in time, I've run out of my Clinique!
The Lucent Magique Two Way Cake (P845) is a powder foundation with three shades that promise a lit-from-within effect. Looks good, though I got the wrong shade. I'm so lucky the liquid foundation was spot on.

Next up, the L'Oreal Color Riche Les Ombres Eye Shadow (P875). It's an intensified eyeshadow formula that comes in a sleek gold and black case. I think I'll let the swatches speak for this one!

Last but not the least, meet L'Oreal's latest anti-aging product: the Revitalift White Anti-Wrinkle & Anti-Spot Night Cream (P870). It has Pro-Retinol A to supposedly stimulate cell renewal and Vitamin Cg to reduce "melanine transfer to cells". If you like the Revitalift Day Cream then this might work wonderfully for you too.
So there you go! Stay tuned for the review of Lumi Magique and the Color Riche eyeshadow in a few weeks. ;) I'm excited, weirdly enough. What do you think? Will you be trying any of these new L'Oreal releases?
