L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation

I'd been really intrigued by cushion foundation and done some research. I wanted to try one from the drugstore just to see how I would like it, so I picked the L'Oreal Tru match lumi cushion foundation. 
Reviews I read and watched all sounded promising. And I have to say, I really enjoy it. 

It has light to medium coverage, but you can totally build it up. I still need to use concealer to hide my blemishes, but the foundation manages to even out my skin tone only in one layer. The name 'lumi' gives away how the finish is. It makes my skin look glowy, in a good way. I feel like i have such a healthy natural skin with this foundation. It just looks so natural and not cakey at all.

There are some drawbacks from this product. One of them is the sanitary reason. Since it's basically liquid-soaked sponge in a compact, the application might not be the most sanitary when you "double dip" your brush or sponge directly to the product. I don't use the sponge that comes in the compact just because I don't like to get it all dirty and all. I use my own foundation brush and I blend with beauty blender afterwards.
I do feel the need to setting powder when using this foundation. Because of its luminous nature, it might not suit best for people with oily skin. The lasting power is quite surprising. I first thought that it would just quickly oxidize, but with the help of primer and setting powder, my makeup still looked good after a good 10 hours or so. 

I am loving this natural spring makeup look. I used all-matte shadow and really like how it turned out. Hope you all have a great day!
