L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Dewy Glow Foundation + GLAM Bronze Cushion De Soleil

*The past few weeks have been great, a little "digital break" which was needed since I needed to clear my head so I can focus on some personal stuff. I can't wait to catch up with my favorite bloggers, and see what has everyone been using, shopping, loving in the beauty world!

Back in January, I wrote a review on the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation which you can click here to read:
From my recent trip to London, I purchased the UK
 L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation &
GLAM Bronze Cushion De Soleil
because I was curious if there's any difference between the US and the UK versions, aren't you?!?

About the product

L'Oreal NUDE Magique Cushion
Dewy Glow Foundation in shade# 11
L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion, a luminous liquid foundation infused in a innovative cushion that delivers the perfect amount of make-up for a fresh finish... Fresh foundation formula is infused with pure water for an instant cooling effect that hydrates when applied to skin. Enriched with SPF 29 UV protection.

 This also has a light to medium coverage and gives a dewy finish to the skin. It comes in this purple-mirrored plastic packaging with a sponge applicator and mirror inside. The NUDE Magique Cushion Foundation comes in 7 different shades:
Porcelain, Vanilla, Rose Vanilla, Rose Beige, Golden Beige, Beige, Golden Amber

the comparison with Lumi Cushion (US)

The store I purchased the NUDE foundation had a nice display of all 7 shades. Best thing about the drugstores in the UK is that they have testers for their makeup products! I was able to color match myself before leaving the store. The NUDE foundation does not come in three different skin undertones (warm, cool & neutral), compared to the Lumi. 

I find the NUDE foundation has a pink tone base compared to my Lumi W5.5 (Suntan). The NUDE foundation packaging did not have a shade name but just the number on it. I am going to guess the shade I got, #11 is the darkest shade out of the 7 since I find most of the 7 shades were favoring more the light and fair skin tones.

Application of the NUDE foundation is the same as the Lumi foundation. They both have a dewy finish with medium coverage which is great for everyday wear. Besides the pink undertone to the NUDE foundation, there's really nothing different between the two.

L'Oreal Paris Glam Bronze
Cushion de Soleil
Our 1st bronzing cushion instantly illuminates skin to reveal a sunkissed dewy bronze finish...The liquid bronzer infused in the innovative cushion allows for a customisable glow all year round with freshness and hydration to build your ideal tan. The more you tap, the more your tan glows.

I have not seen this in the US drugstores and have not really tried a liquid bronzer before. As the cushion foundations were such a hit in my list, I had high expectations on this. Unfortunately, this was still too light for me to use as a bronzer. I actually can use this as a foundation when I get darker in the summer. It has a light-medium coverage with no shimmers but leaves a dewy finish on the skin. The bronzer only came in one shade and so if you already have a tan or medium-to-tan skin tone, I would skip on this.

Don't worry my US residents, we are not missing out with UK's NUDE cushion foundation. I do hope they come out with a bronze line here in the US. Maybe two different ones that will be great for light-medium and medium-dark skin tones.
