L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Makeup Voluminous Mascara

L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Makeup seems to be their version of Maybelline mousse (love that kind of texture) dream mouse foundation. I got a little tiny sample of this and tried it out. The foundation looks and feel like Maybelline dream mousse but it has a sickeningly slick texture that's very typical of dimeticone-rich products. On the face, it offers decent-enough coverage on some tiny acne marks but tend to accentuate any dry flakes that's there. As for pore-smoothing properties, I don't think it does anything to the few pores I have. Anyway, I do like the matte, dry feeling on my face though, it feels like a second skin instead of some thick mask that's clogging the whole face up.
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara has been around for quite some time but I never realized that it's already their 20th anniversary. I guess the product got to be good for it to be around for so long (for Maybelline mascaras, something I hate with a passion, they keep coming up with new ones every seasons but not many of them stick...)

P.S. CVS is giving 7 extra care bucks for any $10 purchase, looks like a perfect chance to try out their new collection. I am thinking about their shimmer strip eyeshadow palette or one of their new blushes, what about you guys?


  1. Not interested in that mousse-y stuff bc I have oily skin and it would slide right off my face. What I want to try so badly is the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, which I heard is comparable to NARS Sheer Glow? The shades they've got are damn orange though. I don't exactly want a Jersey Shore Glow.

  2. I love the Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black! It's amaaaaazing!! Yet to try the original though :)

  3. Ami:
    I am sure you can wait a bit, Maybelline always goes on 40% off sale in Walgreens. I once read somewhere that people can always use some yellow on their face(kind of sounds like BS. lol) that if your skin is red, it balance it off and if you are warm-toned, it melt right in...Anyway, I have a Maybelline mousse concealer (the mousse one:p ) and the obviously yellow thing actually doesn look bad once I blend it in.

    Now I want a try it as well...it has been quite a while since I last tried a new mascara.

  4. Ami,

    The L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle is oil-absorbing. Whether I blot my face after 7 hours or 17, there is hardly any oil and I have oily skin!

    I love the stuff. Even though I have oily skin, since we are having a cold winter, my skin is flaking, so I have to put on a touch of moisturizer to wear this makeup or it shows.

    I won't have to once Spring is here.
