L’Oreal Paris Magique All-In-One Matte Transforming Compact Review


Hi everyone,

    Today’s review is on the L’Oreal Paris Magique All-In-One Matte Transforming Compact which I have been using mostly during the summer-fall season in Turku after my favorite Chambor Silver Shadow Compact which I reviewed here got finished.


     ₹ 399 for 59 g

About the Product:

      The powder comes in a transparent pink color plastic case which is travel-friendly but you have to careful as it is flimsy and mine broke the first time when I dropped it accidentally.  It comes with a puff which I never use but it seems to be of good quality.  I have this in the shade “G2-Golden Ivory” which I feel has looked like it has both yellow and pink undertones but blends into my skin and but still it looks slightly pinkish under some lightings if I apply it with a heavy hand.  As I brought it online, I am not sure which shade would suit me best and there are few shades available.   The compact powder is very finely milled and on application disappears into the skin completely.  It does not feel chalky, blends well and helps in smoothing out pores and some minor imperfections in the face.  I usually using it as a setting powder and use it with a Real Technique buffing brush or TBS brush for setting it.  It controls oil decently for 4-5 hours and more in cold climate but accentuates dry patches in the skin.  As the name suggests it is is a highly matte compact and hence it is better to apply on top of moisturizer, but people with very oily skin can apply it without moisturizer especially in humid conditions.  People with dry skin might find it more drying and it enhances all dry flakes or areas if the skin is not well moisturized or sometimes even on well-moisturized skin. It does come with an SPF34 which is good and is has an affordable price tag.


Affordable Price

Widely available

Decent packaging that comes with a mirror and applicator

Powder is finely milled and does not feel chalky

Blends and disappears well into the skin

Gives good oil control

Few different shades available

Has SPF34

Makes a good setting powder


As the name suggests, it a matte compact and hence accentuates dry flakes on non-moisturized skin and even on well-moisturized skin if applied heavily

Not sure if the shades available will suit all Indian skin tones

Prettykooll rating: 4.5/5 ( If you have oily or combination oily skin), 3.5/5 (If you have dry or combination dry skin)
Available online at amazon.in

     I would suggest using either the Revlon Touch & Glow Moisturizing Powder or the Chambor Silver Shadow Compact if you have dry or combination dry skin like me as they do not dry out the skin as much as like other compact powders.

      I have combination dry skin and love the chambor silver shadow compact, it controls oil at the same time does not make the skin dry or accentuate dry patches very much compared to other compacts. And it also gives some decent coverage. I think the L’Oreal is best suited for oily skin type.
