L’Oreal Lumie Magique Bonne Mine Instant Radiance Enhancer
Anything that warms up my skin tone a bit on pale and sallow days is good with me – products with the ‘bonne mine’ tag seem to really suit my tone (remember the Laura Mercier Bonne Mine palette that I literally used to the last?). Bonne mine (said ‘mean’), to explain, is a French term loosely meaning ‘well looking’.
So, this definitely warmed my tone.. and gave very good light-medium coverage. I found it a little on the dry side but then, I also did with Dior BB and I’ve used that all summer! It’s a question of putting a good moisturiser on underneath.
There are SO many new foundations coming, I cannot tell you, and they’re pretty much all premium so anything in the more affordable market that is doing a really good job, as this is, in smoothing, evening and warming is good in my book.
This is the Illuminating Powder that will launch along side the Bonne Mine product. I am not a powder lover but thankfully this is a very subtle one that has the advantage of mattifying as well. I’m not sure I’d have this in daily use; I steer clear of shimmery product and in the sun you’d light up like a Christmas tree with this, I suspect. It’s more, for me, a highlighting product. However, for some evening glam, go for it!
In my usual state of disarray, I can’t now find the release.. I’m guessing September launch.
