Review and Swatches of L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation

Hey Sunshine,

Today I am up with newly launched L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation. Recently I am more into affordable drugstore brands and that's why when L'Oreal launched this new foundation, I thought to give a try.

Price: - Rs.595/- for 30ml. And now it is on 20% Republic sale in where you can grab it in Rs.476/- here (it is non-affiliated link)

A little information about this foundation from the brand:-

  • Introducing the 1st 12Hour Matte skin perfecter brightens skin for matte that’s never flat.
  • 12H shine-free. Shower fresh liquid formula.
  • Gives a new sleek bright matte finish.
  • 12H lasting actions absorbing mineral micro sponges diffuse their matt powder - Instantly by stopping the excess oil.
  • Progressively by regulating sebum secretion during the day.


The foundation comes in a beautiful pink tube packaging for which it is easy to carry anywhere. I am really scared to carry those glass bottle foundation in my bag as it can break but this packaging is sturdy tube packaging for which I would love to give +1 for it.

The foundation disperses only by squeezing the tube through a small nozzle for which it is mess free and easily controlled that how much you need for a single application which is not present in glass bottle foundation.

My story:-

Now the moment I saw L'Oreal launch a new foundation, I was really curious to try it as it is going to be my first foundation from L'Oreal (sounds weird, I So, when Nykaa was having some sale going on before I grab this foundation in shade N1.

Now L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation comes in 5 different shades, for which it is really confusing a bit as the shades are not for all skin tone in terms of undertones. I am warm undertone and have fair skin tone (am NC 30 in Mac foundation now)so it was a bit confusing between choosing the shade G1 or N1 as G1 as strong yellow undertone which might make me look more yellow while N1 has the slight pink undertone which will either go perfectly with my skin tone or I will end up buying foundation that has pink undertone. Whenever I choose any foundation I always try to choose yellow undertone one but this time after researching a lot I decide to go for N1 in double mind.

Thankfully I choose the shade N1 which blends and match seamlessly with my skin tone, now this makes no sense that how a pink undertone foundation matches my skin perfectly...err!!! I don't know. Anyways, thankfully the foundation works on my yellow undertone fair skin tone surprisingly.

My experience:-

L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation in shade N1 is light in texture for which it blends seamlessly with my skin. I don't feel any after drying effect during winter in my skin after applying the foundation, maybe because I have oily skin tone during summer which turns into normal during winter but it might make little bit drier to dry skin during winter. It has SPF 11 in it. It gives a very natural coverage which means it is perfect for daily wear foundation. But again one need a concealer to hide any dark circles as the foundation covers all the minute marks of acne or pimples but unable to hide dark circles to some extent. The foundation coverage can be buildable but again layering more than 2 layers of it might make you look cakey and patchy after some time. It claims a very nice semi-matte finish which turns into little more towards matte during winter for which an additional moisturizer is necessary along with this foundation during winter. But it is definitely going to work best during all those sweaty summers. The foundation claims to stay 12 hr which is not right as well because it stays pretty 7-8 hours during winters in my skin so in summer I can guess it will stay near about 5-6 hours on my oily skin.

Overall L'Oreal Paris Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation is a perfect drugstore foundation for daily wear in affordable price. All I wish it has little more shades option in this foundation otherwise a very good everyday wear foundation for oily skin tones during summers.

P.S. You will see me using this foundation in my youtube channel pretty soon :)

That's all for today. Until next time "Stay beautiful with your makeup on..."

Love Sammy :*
