L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation Review, Swatches, Photos

They tell me imitation is the highest form of flattery. Perhaps Maybelline Dream Mousse is feeling all kinds of flattered that L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation is looking all kinds of similar.

L’Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation just recently launched and should be at your local drugstores. It’s a whipped souffle-like foundation much like Dream Mousse. Don’t quote me, I’m not an expert, but this is probably only the second whipped foundation within the US market. I can’t honestly think of another available here in the US.

Now I like whipped foundations ALOT particularly Bourjous’ version, damn that stuff is amazing. However, I’ve had my ups and downs with Dream Mousse and normally stick to using it in the Summer when I want lighter coverage.

I was all about trying this new version from L’Oreal and was quite curious how it would stand up against other formulas I’ve tried in the “whipped” realm.

Use It, Stash It, Or Trash It: The Holiday Collection Edition

game

Time to start Monday off with a little fun because lord knows I can use some fun at the start of a boring work week, even though it’s a short one eh?

The name of the game is Use It, Stash It, or Trash it and it’s a variation of Sex, Marry, Kill. Never played it? It’s easy!

Someone presents you with a list of three people in your life or celebs and you decide if you want to have sex with them, marry them, or kill them off.

My variation of the game involves cosmetics. I’ll give you three options and you tell me if you’d keep the item and use it, stash it away in your beauty vault and never use it because it’s just so damn gorgeous , or trash it in the makeup graveyard!

Ready to play?

Jump!
