L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Drugstore Makeup Review
This year, as promised, I am bringing you reviews of affordable, high-quality, drugstore makeup. High quality is not always synonymous with a large price tag! On Facebook, I asked many of you for your favorite drugstore recommendations. Some of you recommended L'Oreal True Match Lumi as a dupe (comparable, affordable replacement) for Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation. You know I love my Luminous Silk, so I was intrigued! How does this drugstore foundation compare?
I let you know in today's comprehensive review. I initially purchased the foundation back in December, used it for over a month, and came back to let you know my findings.
The bottom line: it's a great foundation. With one swipe of the pad, you get very light coverage. Or you can build it with two or three swipes for more coverage. The biggest advantage of this foundation is the price. It is typically sold for around $17, but if you use a coupon (like I did at CVS) you can get it for a significantly reduced rate. You can also find it on Amazon for around $12.
The blush I'm wearing in the second half of the video is L'Oreal True Match super-blendable blush in subtle sable.

Oh I loved this book, but how to put it into practice? I am an English lady, living in the USA and married to a lovely, wonderful man who comes from a Minnesota Rural Farm background...there are cultural differences aplenty, as you can imagine...especially at the dinner time, where the 'plonking down' of a gallon plastic milk jug directly onto the dining table is an unfortunate regular occurrence (not to mention the roll of paper towels to be used as napkins, and the use of a tablespoon to eat most types of food) lol! Being of English origin, I have cupboards full of fine bone china, delicately embroidered linens, Crystal glasses, delicate tea cups...all of which languish unused. Ah well, I can read this book and dream of more gracious times...maybe sneak some of that gallon of milk into a crystal decanter?
On a more serious note, I realised that my own manners had deteriorated somewhat over the past 10 years or so...I was a nurse in a busy city hospital working night shifts for several years, and 'lunch' (when it existed) was eaten in 10 minutes on the run and consisted of microwave meals or hospital burgers...and my language and general manners were starting to mimic that of my patients (mostly detoxing alcoholics and drug abusers, sadly). Now that I have retired, I can work on bringing back some graciousness into my life and this book has reminded me of many things that I had let go. Time to get back to being the English Lady that I was born to be...maybe some of it will eventually rub off. Of course, not all the suggestions are practical for day to day life...I love to curl up on the sofa and relax, and cooking a three or four course meal every evening would tax both my finances and my sanity, but it's a fun read and nice to dream about.
Lynda, thank you for such a fantastic and interesting review of my book. Your image of the milk in the crystal decanter made me smile. I am so grateful to everyone who has reviewed my books online. Thank you!
This week I would love to know... have you tried True Match Lumi Cushion? Do you have any drugstore makeup favorites to share with us?
