Introducing the NEW L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique all in one Compact

In the hot and humid weather of Singapore, our skin tend to sweat  and get oily easily no matter the types of our skin. The nose (around t-zone) just love to be super shiny and oily (arrgggg).... I have dry combination skin now (skin is healing really well from the allergy reaction I had weeks ago). Even with dehydrated skin, my nose still shine when I'm feel warm!

So the type of powder used on the t-zone is really the key of keeping skin from looking like a grease pan! We all want fresh and NOT cakey/patchy skin. So I always reach for light weight powder to dust it over my nose (t-zone) to kinda minimize shine.

Anyway, I just wanna say that L'Oreal Paris recently launched a shine buster! Sound promising right? L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique with SPF 34 PA +++ (non-comedogenic)

L'Oreal Paris introducing their latest innovation that was developed specially for South East Asian skin type, Mat Magique all-in-one powder foundation for matte and poreless finishing. The powder is so lightweight that we don't have to worry about cakey skin or it being pore clogging.

Infused with Volcanic Perlite, this natural yet powerful sebum absorbent keeps shine at bay for up to 12 hours.

Available in 5 Asian specific shades::
R1 - Rose Ivory
N1 - Nude Ivory
N2 - Nude Vanilla
G1 - Vanilla Ivory
G2 - Golden Ivory

How to use ::
Apply powder as foundation after sun protection/primer
As touch-up powder to instead mattify the skin

For oily eyelids (and those who doesn't apply eyeshadow) - apply on the lids before eyeliner to keep them looking sharp and prevent smudges.

Swatches in natural lighting (indoor and outdoor)

Here's a little experiment on how good the powder absorb sebum and mattify the skin::
Apply a layer of olive oil on the back of my hand and pat the powder over (half of the area)...

Use a blotter (see.. totally no "oil" on the "powder side of the hand~

Interesting right?? Kekeke~

I will try this on my face (focusing on T-zone) to see how well this will work
Details review will be on seperate post
