L’Oreal Magic Nude Foundation is available in India with Nykaa and Flipkart. It is priced at 899/- for 27 ml. of product. 

What L’Oreal Says About It: L’oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder that looks like a foundation but as you blend in it transforms into powder. Ideal for people with oily skin as it is non-greasy. L’oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder blends well into the skin. It gives a natural look.

  • It gives complete coverage.
  • It reduces the redness on the face.
  • It covers dark spots, acne and blemish marks.
  • It covers skin pigmentation giving an even skin tone.
  • It gives your skin a semi-matte finish, not making your skin oily.
  • It is available in six shades to match your skin tone. 
My Take on L’Oreal Magic Nude Foundation:  I have always been interested in buying a good foundation that will not make my skin dry, but will give a mostly matte finish. It was this particular thing that made me purchase this product in the first place. The color Natural Beige is a good match for my current skin tone. 
Although the foundation claims to give complete coverage, it gives semi-sheer to medium coverage, and evens out my skin tone. It reduces redness and also gives it a very matte, yet not dry appearance. I like the fact that it is not heavy at all, and it does not leave me with dry patches – something that liquid or cream to powder foundations often tend to do. It has SPF 18 in it, so it protects against the sun as well.  

I think the lasting power is my only issue with this product – it is not very long lasting, and stays around 4 hours on me. It can apparently be used as a sunscreen, so I understand the sheer coverage.

In this weather, where winter is knocking, I would love to use this more to see how it performs against my skin and provides protection against the winter sun. The fact that there are more shades for darker and lighter skin tones make me very happy as well. 

You can check the swatch here, which looks lighter somewhere. The shade is very slightly light on my NC 42 skin tone, and I would say it will suit NC 40-42 very well. Overall, I think L’Oreal has come up with a good product for Indian skin tones, and the number of shades make it easy for you to pick one up.
