Sample Review: L'Oréal Magic Smooth Soufflé

Remember this? When I saw this display, I decided to grab 2 samples so I can write a tiny review for you guys :) Obviously, the sample is very limited in size so my take on this product might not be as accurate as it should be. I'm thinking of a good title for this kind of post besides "sample reviews." It sounds so lame :P


If you've ever felt the texture of mousse, light fluffy and smooth, it's exactly like that. Another reference would be the Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation (in a jar).

The sample is really tiny so I needed at least 2 to cover my whole face. The shade is a little light on me and leans toward the pink side.

Here's a little test for the pigmentation of this foundation. I dabbed the product onto this freckle on my arm.


Flaking. EWW.

Pretty much no difference. Yes, it lightened up the freckle but this means that you can't cover imperfections with this. It didn't oxidize on me but the coverage is extremely sheer. I doubt that it can be buildable because everything you put more on, it just flakes or removes the layer beneath it. However, it does cover pores (not completely) but it makes them look smaller. I wouldn't recommend this for people with dry skin or someone that is looking for a foundation that really covers. 6/10


  1. I tried the Dream Matte Mouse foundation YEARS ago and I didn't like it. This looks very similar to me. The concept is nice, but too bad it didn't work out.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it! ^^
