L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation

There aren't many drugstore foundations on the market that claim a souffle-like texture. That's why I was so excited to finally try this foundation! It claims to give a smooth, poreless appearance. Unfortunately, this did not happen for me.

I usually shy away from jar foundations, because I really hate how bulky they are. As you can see, about half of the jar is extra packaging. The lid twists off, revealing the foundation. 

This is the lightest shade that they offer. It was hard for me to tell at the store if it would match or not, but as soon as I opened it, I knew it wouldn't. It looks like an orange marshmallow in the jar!


This foundation felt like marshmallow fluff. It had an amazing texture, but the color was just way too warm for me. It's quite a thick foundation, so it does feel and look like you're wearing makeup. It makes the skin look dull in my opinion. Not what I'm looking for in a foundation. 

  • feels soft and smooth to the touch
  • not enough shades
  • all of the shades look warm toned 
  • changed texture when blended out/doesn't blend well
  • bulky packaging
  • messy application
  • makes skin look dull
  • feels heavy/looks cakey with powder
  • poor value (I paid $16.50 at CVS, ridiculous!) 
  • doesn't cover redness well
This foundation didn't work for me at all. I feel like the shade selection is a joke, everything is like a beige color. There were no cool toned shades at all, and no dark shades either! That's one of my biggest annoyances when it comes to foundation. The texture felt nice, but it didn't blend out properly, and changed to a clumpy texture. It was really heavy looking, and also made my skin look flat, lifeless, and orange. It was an all-around horrible foundation for me. I wouldn't recommend this to anybody, ever! 


  1. Its looks pretty clumpy and chalky. But i love the packaging

    1. Yes, it was clumpy and chalky! Not my favorite qualities for a foundation :p
