L'Oreal Eau De Teint Foundation Review

L'Oreal Eau De Teint Foundation link

L'Oreal Eau De Teint Foundation was a release back in 2013 that was hailed as a drugstore dupe for Armani's Maestro foundation. Whilst this is a selling point for many, for me it was the 'lighter than water' claims. Don't worry I hadn't lost leave of my senses and was not really buying into the lighter than water claims but I do prefer bases which do not feel heavy and cakey on my skin so it was definitely something to investigate.

Starting with packaging L'Oreal's Eau De Teint Foundation comes in a petite frosted bottle which makes it rather attractive for sitting on ones dressing table. Pleasing aesthetics aside the fact the bottle is glass would make it worrying to carry around in make up bags and for travel which is a shame because it's size would make it perfect for this purpose. We're also without a pump for this foundation which is a shame because things can get very messy, especially because of it's watery texture. When I use this I prefer to tip onto a saucer to avoid spillages but this does result in wasting a lot of excess product.

Instructions tell us to shake well before use and this is imperative and quite amusing as I've never had a foundation that sounds like I'm shaking a cocktail before - it's definitely liquid.

I've tried applying with a brush and finger tips, preferring fingertips to smooth over my skin and leave a light gorgeous velvet texture. As someone who doesn't enjoy heavy foundations but acknowledges the need for some coverage and evening of my skin tone this is perfect.

Drier skins should be wary as this foundation will cling to those dry patches and if you have any blemishes you'll need to go in with concealor or look to a heavier coverage product. I'm looking forward to reaching for this more in the warmer months (should they arrive!) when a heavy base is the last thing on ones mind.

You can also see me wearing L'Oreal Eau De Teint in this post with all the other trimmings.

Have you tried this foundation? Is it something you'd like or are you a heavier coverage fan?

  1. It seems like a nice light weight foundation, shame it doesn't come with a pump to make it a little easier to get just the right amount :o) Xx

    1. I think I'm going to set up a business making pumps that are suitable for drugstore foundations!! x

  2. I've been really curious about this formula, sounds really interesting! :)


  3. I wish this came with a pump! I have a lot of dry patches, so I think I'll skip on this one!
    Great review!

    1. Yes it's not the best for dry skin and without the pump doesn't sound like one for you.
