To be honest, I bought this L’Oreal Mat Magique Compact Powder because the packaging was so pink! (I love all things pink) and also the fact I absolutely love L’Oreal products!
But once I started using it, I couldn’t stop. I have actually repurchased this product (5 times!!!). It glides smoothly onto my skin to give me a moderate coverage throughout the day without making me look cakey! Also, the matte effect stays for a long time, since I have oily skin this is a huge advantage for me. However, if I am out all day in the Delhi’s hot and humid weather, I definitely need a touch-up after about 3 to 4 hours.
The best way to apply is with the sponge that comes with the compact powder. The sponge is of good quality and doesn’t feel scratchy on my skin. The sponge helps to spread the product evenly on the skin and gives a maximum coverage. However, if you drag the sponge on your skin, it will tend to give you a streaky finish. If you don’t like using the sponge, you can use a brush to apply the powder too!

My Verdict about L’Oreal Mat Magique Compact Powder:
This L’Oreal compact powder comes in a very eye-catching white and fuchsia glossy box and the powder is a pack in a pink plastic case which has two compartments. The upper compartment holds the compact powder and the lower one has the mirror on one side and the sponge on the other. Honestly, the packaging is so stylish. The packaging of this L’Oreal product is very different from the compact of other brands. This arrangement can be a little inconvenient as you have to continuously flip between the two compartments.
As far as the texture is concerned, the powder is oh-so-soft and silky!
