      Comments about L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude, Light Ivory, .91 oz:

      This goes on silky smooth, but I don't get the reviewers that said it left their skin dewy. This gives you a straight out matte finish----it basically turns to a powder as you apply it. Which is great IF you already have pretty much flawless skin. But it does not cover redness or blemish areas well, so I also don't agree with those that said you don't need to use much. Once again, if you have perfect skin, sure you don't need much. But if you have great skin, why are you wearing makeup anyway? I'll use it for days when my skin is fairly clear or light makeup days, but it won't work for everyday wear.

        Comments about L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude, Light Ivory, .91 oz:

        I have rosacea and age spots; this product covers both! So little is needed that my first bottle seems to be lasting forever. (I do wish the bottle were transparent, so I could see when to buy a new bottle.) One dab on one fingertip covers an area as large as the forehead, so you need only four or five dabs to cover the entire face, perhaps three more for the neck area.
        Light ivory is the best color for my very fair skin.

          Comments about L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude, Light Ivory, .91 oz:

          I thought the price was a bit steep, but after using the product, I now think it's worth it b/c you only need a few drops (3-4) per usage, and I can see the bottle easily lasting a couple of months.
          I have normal-to-oily skin, so I was looking for light coverage, but it had to be heavy-duty enough to cover an age spot (40's skin). This did the trick. You just put a few drops of product on your palms or fingertips and blend onto your entire face. It gives nice, lightweight coverage.. slightly dewy. If you want to matte it down, I just lightly went over the shine-prone spots (nose, chin) with pressed powder.
          If you need heavy coverage (as in acne, freckles, alot of sun spots or age spots), you will need to use a concealer stick first and then use this over it. Even so, the liquid powder undid some of my concealer, so I had to pat another thin layer over it afterward.
          I love that the bottle is small enough that you can carry it in your makeup bag and on planes.

          Comments about L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude, Light Ivory, .91 oz:

          This new lightweight liquid foundation from L'Oreal, Magic Nude, provides a soft skin-like finish that looks like you are not wearing foundation of any kind, the "your-skin-but-better" effect. It works well on bare skin or over serums and/or primer. It is reminiscent of a pore-minimizing liquid foundation from the 70's/80's, but the innovations in ingredients since then make this even better, giving it a softer finish that moves with the skin. Upon application it has a slippery feel just this side of oily, but does not break me out, does not look oily, and dries to a beautiful semi-matte weightless finish. One layer gives light sheer coverage and minimizes some flaws, (e.g. covers mild redness and evens tone). If I need it I spot conceal with a concealer and add a touch more foundation on top. If you need heavier coverage this product is not for you.

          The product does take some getting used to. Luckily, the limited amount that comes out of the bottle at a time is easy to work with, as long as you remember which part of your face you have applied it to and which part still needs some. Remember to shake the bottle each time. I use a Q-tip to get the product onto my skin, then fingers to spread it out.

          I wish the bottle were designed to be carried along in my purse, but while the portability issue is inconvenient (hence only 4 stars) it's not a deal-breaker. This stuff lasts about 8-10 hours on me with a light finishing powder, about 6-8 hours without. For super-long days I just bring along a backup powder mineral foundation.

          Darker complexions may find the selection limiting, but I have very fair and easily irritated skin with some freckles, and Nude Beige was perfect for July/August and Light Ivory is just what I need now for the cooler months, very pale, yet not at all pink. With one or perhaps two coats all my redness is gone but my freckles still show making the look very natural. Great to have in my beauty arsenal.
