Apologies for my mini hiatus! I'm in the midst of my final year at University, and so I've been focused on working hard and enjoying the last few months of Uni life.
Now that I'm back home for the Easter break, I thought it'd be a good opportunity to do an update on a product I tried a few months ago. After using The Body Shop compact, my obsession with cushion foundations was real. They're great for dry skin, as the formula tends to be on the dewier side of things, and the packaging is ideal for on the go application. L'Oreal's take on the trend hit the U.K. high street a few months ago, and so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Despite this, I really did love the dewiness of the formulation, and I probably would purchase this again. Here's a photo of the foundation after a few hours of wear (brace yourself for a close up of my face haha!) Considering that the foundation has an SPF of 29, it didn't look too shiny, and didn't break down on the skin despite my running around campus.

Overall, if you're searching for a luminous foundation this is a really good option. It's easy to pop into your handbag, and lasts particularly well on dry skin types.
