L'Oreal Mat Magique Shade -G1-Vanilla Ivory


See it through my Eyes:

This product is launched early in June in India. I saw it at a leading beauty supply store. I was eyeing on Maybelline newly launched compact, but somehow this attracted me more, being more affordable and quite attractive I thought of giving this a try.
I immediately swatched the shades and G1 Vanilla Ivory seemed a close match and it really is.


The packaging is colorful in glossy hot pink hard paper outer box. The product comes in a round plastic compact flip open case. It is divided into two sections, the upper section contains the compact and the lower section contains the sponge puff with a full size round mirror, which makes life easy and travel friendly. I like the sectioning idea; it keeps things sorted and neat.

The powder is soft and smooth; it is just the right texture which blends in the skin like 2nd skin. It melts into the skin beautifully. The application is smooth and hassle free with the puff, but I prefer a large powder brush to apply it without any patchiness or harsh lines visible. The texture is not too powdery and the skin adapts it well on application. 


It doesn’t give a very heavy coverage, but it is good enough for daily wear. This means, this one is not Mr. dependable for your evening parties or events. I don’t mind that, it serves a good purpose for daily wear. Some things should be meant for daily purposes too.

New Compact India: L'Oreal Mat Magique Compact



I have a combination skin with oily T-zone. The pores seemed less visible and skin looked quite smooth after application. After four hours of application, my skin got little shiny even in air conditioned environment. I was disappointed with this. But not completely, I mean it gives a healthy glow, which is poreless and smooth. Now come on, we cannot blame the compact alone for the oiliness. Can we? It also depends on the base product and its texture too.
On reapplication, it makes the skin matte again but I don’t prefer layering skin with compact again and again. It doesn’t let my pores breath and chances of getting pimples increase.
