My Favourite L’Oreal Nude Magique
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream launched a collection of Nude Magique which unfortunately not yet in India.
I purchased mine from Europe when I was there :
( BB cream , cream blush, and a BB eye concealer ),Again, we face a rather odd conundrum with a BB Cream formula that, well, isn’t really a BB Cream. With Nude Magique, L’Oreal has simply created something completely outside of the realms of a traditional BB Cream. It’s not even CLOSE to anything you’d find in a BB Cream from Korea and in some cases it’s actually entertaining they think it’s ok to call it one.
Let’s take a look at L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream.
L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream comes in light and medium variations and it’s transparency formula which goes on your skin smoothly. This might change once this launched in the US later this Summer but I’m going to throw it out there and say I think it’ll stay the same.
Retail: £9.99 for 30ml
This is a “BB” concealer, so as the billion of “BB” products around the beauty market at the moment, we have to think that it contains ingredients good for our skin whilst helping to reduce dark circles and under eye bags.One of the ingredients is caffeine, that should help to contrast dull and tired skin.The formula is very liquid, good job there is a roll-on applicator that helps not to pour too much product.It comes in a single, universal shade that should fit every skin tone.
It blends well with the skin, I use a small duo fiber brush and it absorbs quite quickly but not too fast so I have the time to work with it a little bit and add some more if I want to get a bit more of coverage.It works quite well but I won’t use this concealer if you need to cover scars, big spots or very dark circles because It doesn’t really show an intense coverage.I use it to contour my face on the bridge of the nose and to cover some pigmentation areas but I probably will not purchase it again when finished.
The price is about £6 but there are offers around so it can work cheaper if you shop around.
Well, it seems that not only are they on the BB cream , they’ve also created the Nude Magique BB Blush. Confused? Don’t be. If we’re lucky, they might be on to something here, another must-have in our handbag, perhaps?
L’OREAL says: Transparent blush texture that turns pink on contact with the skin for an instant glow. Magic!
Volume: 15 ml, £7.99 .
You’d be pleased to know that this transparent texture blush is NOT sticky at all. It looks rather gel-like, doesn’t it?
There’s more… (blending)
My product impression? Let’s say, I’m impressed, colour-wise ! I had to grab this little tube of joy that promises to give you that instant glowy, rosy cheeks, creating that effortless natural look effect.
What I really like about this BB Blush is the fact that it hasn’t got any fragrance or distinctive scent, which is very common with most drugstore brands. To be honest, I’m unsure as to why this is called BB, but perhaps because it feels like a balm?? Or they’re just hyping it up? If you’re hoping for skin benefits, you wouldn’t find it with this blush – this purely is just aimed to give you that natural rosy cheeks, and that’s about it! Although I must say, I didn’t see any parabens in the ingredient list, if this chemical concerns you.
But the application couldn’t be simpler and easier. You literally need half a size of a pea! Not pea-sized, just half of it to start off. The swatches above, I got carried away a little. LOL.
♥ Once on your cheek, simply rub it gently (and evenly) on to places where you want to create that rosy cheeks effect! It’s as if you’re putting a BB cream on, but only on that portion of your face.
It doesn’t feel greasy nor turns greasy later either and the color has a good lasting power for what it is and for how little I used on this pic — perhaps approx. 4 hours tops? During application, if you rub it in a little bit more, the color will start to fade away, which I’ve noticed when I did the swatches on my hand earlier. So, there’s still a solution in case you went overboard with rosiness on your cheeks with this BB Blush.
Stay Beautiful & Blessed!
Love you all
