When I saw that L'Oreal released a cushion foundation, I knew I had to try it out! I picked the product up from my local Rite Aid, and I've been trying it out for about a month, so I have a good opinion on it.
The Lumi cushion comes in 12 different shades in neutral, warm and cool tone shades. My closest shade is W3. The compact itself is sleek and compact. You can easily put this in your purse. On the back side of the compact are instructions on how to apply the foundation.
The compact does come with a blue circular sponge as seen on the back of the compact, but I threw mine out because it doesn't apply very well. I enjoy using this with my Real Techniques Complexion Sponge.
There's a nice sized mirror in the compact. You'll find the foundation inside once you open the white flap/lid. Unfortunately the amount of product in here is only .51 oz., so you're getting about half the amount of foundation that you would normally get in standardized foundations.
This is why it's called a "cushion" foundation. The foundation is embedded throughout this cushion-like fabric.
This is a little embarrassing, but here is my face without any makeup. You can see I have sunspots, acne scars and uneven skin tone.
With the foundation, I was able to cover up most of my acne scars. My skin did look luminous and fresh as described by L'Oreal. This foundation is light to medium coverage. You can definitely build it up.
Here is a photo of me wearing full makeup where I'm showing off my Kat Von D Lolita II lips (haha). My skin actually looks very smooth here.
This photo below was when I did a FOTD where I am also wearing the foundation. It does a great job with coverage.
