The Claims:
This brand new foundation touts itself as an “un-makeup makeup look” with Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup with SPF 18. This liquid formula transforms on contact, leaving a soft powder like finish. This foundation is suppose to give a a lightweight, natural finish.

My First Impression:

The liquid comes in a glass bottle with an open top. Be careful when pouring the liquid out for the first time because it is extremely runny and has the potential to make a huge mess. The application instructions direct you to shake well before use then apply the product directly to skin with fingers. Sponges and brushes are discouraged.

I purchased the color Sun Beige 328. It is a little light and would most likely go one shade darker should I ever buy the product again. The product is extremely easy to apply and does make good on it’s claim to transform into a powder consistency once blended.

I’m a little biased because I prefer a fuller coverage so this particular product was not created for me. However, I do like the silky finish it provides and will probably use it when I’m in a hurry and need a quick cover up.

I would recommend this product if you are looking for a cheap light-weight quick fix that gives a faux flawless finish.
