L’Oreal Mat Magique All In One Matte Transforming Powder Review

by Rashmita on July 22, 2015 · 8 comments

Hello everyone,

I am back after a mini break, fresh and happy after a trip to my homeland. Today, I have this new launch from L’Oreal to review.  In addition to the existing range of Mat Magique, L’Oreal has come up with this affordable all-in-one compact. Read on to know how true are the claims of the product:

L’Oreal Mat Magique All In One Matte Transforming Powder

Rs. 399/- for 6 gm.

My Experience with L’Oreal Mat Magique All In One Matte Transforming Powder:

The outer paper carton has detailed information about the product. The compact comes in a double compartment style with a white sponge for application. The top of the compact is transparent and gives a view of the product inside. There is a small complaint here; anybody would have loved to have a mirror for touch ups on the go. Nevertheless, the rest of the packaging is pretty and girly. Add a mirror L’Oreal and you would just be bang on with the packaging.

The compact comes in 6 shades with warm and neutral undertones. More shades would definitely be welcome as I found little option for the dusky girls. The compact applies sheer on the first go, but the coverage can be built up without looking cakey. The matte effect stays for a pretty long time, of course depending on the situation you are in.

Loreal compact powder

In air conditioned environment, the matte effect stays put for approximately 4-5 hours, but as I was exposed to hot and humid weather recently for quite a few times, I could feel the effect last for 3 hours maximum. The claims of staying all day long is definitely exaggerated, you have to touch up after a while. For reference, I have combination to oily skin.

Loreal compact powder

I quite liked the fact that it comes with SPF, so even if you are applying sunscreen, this would come in as an added protection to the skin. The sponge provided is of good quality and does not scratch or irritate the skin. This is a good option for everyday use if you do not have much blemishes to cover up.


For a made-up party look, you have to use a concealer to get the flawless finish to the makeup.

Big claims but average results...good option on budget-friendly base makeup. My compact doesn't have a mirror...maybe they added it in the following batch...

Such an attractive and budget friendly product, but claims sure are exaggerated. :/

Lovely review. But I dont think Ill get match for my dusky skin. I seriously want this 🙁

Was waiting for a review of this but need more shade options :<

I have become addicted to this compact. It controls the oil secretion for atleast 3-4 hours but after that a retouch makes my skin matte again. But Rashmita mine one has a mirror inside. Have you got the earlier batch????


Vidula July 28, 2015 at 11:18 pm

The mirror is in the sponge compartment, maybe you just havent seen it?

Am eyeing this, hoping for a shade match 🙂 *fingers crossed*
