L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream Review & GIVEAWAY

I'm not going to explain what a BB Cream is, I'm sure you've heard enough about it as they have taken the bloggosphere by storm. There are so many versions out there, from the original Asian brands to drugstore brands. Nude Magique BB Cream by L'Oreal has been on the market for a few months now and the lovely ladies over at L'Oreal sent me one to try out.

What I say
This BB Cream comes in Fair and Medium and promises to adjust to your skintone. It contains micro pigment capsules that go on white but adjust to your skintone as your rub it in.

- Feels very lightweight
- Dries quickly and is non-sticky
- Looks very natural on
- Light to medium buildable coverage - that said, it won't give you the coverage of a foundation, but it will instead make you
  look like you have naturally clear skin with some blemishes still showing through.
- Wears quite well for a BB cream - 6 hours of wear without a touch up

- These tend to oxidize (at least on me it did) and does get darker after a few hours of wear. However when I wore it with
  powder on top the colour stayed the same. So either get the lighter shade, or powder it down if your skin reacts to makeup
  and oxidizes it.

This is how it looks applied to my face... behold, you're about to see me without makeup! And yes, that IS a towel wrapped around my head. That's how I am most mornings after a shower, with a towel worn as a turban while I do my makeup.

As you can see from the picture on the right, while my spots are still showing through, my skin looks evened out. It's perfect for those days when you don't want to wear foundation but still want to trick people into thinking you have perfect skin.

  1. From the photos, this looks like it gives pretty good coverage. It looks great to me.

    1. I know right, it's definitely more coverage than I'm used to with BB creams, yet doesn't feel like you have anything on. :)

  2. I always feel a little disappointed by shade adjusting products. I've never had much success with them matching my fair skin perfectly. Having said that though, I did try this one in store and it seems quite good! Do you find it gets oily throughout the day or emphasises dry patches? The BB creams I've tried have either been crazy moisturising (Garnier, I'm looking at you!) or dry down kind of powdery, which is not a good look on dry skin.

    1. I actually wear this with powder on top (for extra coverage) so it doesn't get oily. My skin leans on the dry side and so far I haven't had any dry patches show through. Oh and I've tried the Garnier one too, this is NOTHING like the Garnier one in temrs of consistency. It's not tacky and doesn't feel clammy on, so definitely a better formula :)

  3. Looks a pretty decent coverage ..

  4. I didnt like this one because, as you said, it got darker after a few hours of wearing :S
