L'Oréal Nude Magique CC Cream Anti-red


Colour Correcting creams seem to be the new big thing in the beauty world (and I don't even think they are new), very similar to BB creams they have the added benefit of tone correctors in the form of smart pigment capsules.  

I am wary when it comes to BB creams, in fact there isn't one that i've liked so far, so when I came across L'oréal's range of Nude Magique CC Creams I was very sceptical. 

The Nude Magique CC Creams come in 3 varieties - Green for Anti Redness, Purple to fight dullness and Peach to fight the signs of fatigue on your skin.  

I chose to buy Green as my skin is prone to Rosacea on my cheeks and round the corners of my nose which sometimes foundations can't cover.  

As you can see from the swatches above the formula is a yucky green shade but as soon as you start to blend it into your skin it transforms into a foundation and gives build-able light weight coverage.  The emulsion neutralised any of the redness leaving a fresh faced glow.  

I was really surprised with the amount of coverage I got from this, I stippled it on as I would with my normal foundation, blending it in with a blending sponge too.  I moisturised before hand because when I initially tried it without I felt it was a bit dry, however by adding moisturiser before hand cleared this issue up.  

In the photo above I am wearing no concealer or my usual touche éclat.    I have a light dusting of loose powder and a tiny amount of blush and feel that I have achieved a really natural look for daily wear.  In fact a friend of mine I showed the photo to would have thought I had foundation on.  It didn't have that effect with previous BB's I have tried.  


 The L'Oréal website are giving away small samples I believe and you get to pick the colour you would like to try, you can visit here

I bought mine from Tescos, but you can purchase it in any drug store.  It retails at £9.99.  Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer on a wide range of products.   I'd quite like to try the Peach too.

    1. I have bad acne scars and an out break on my left cheek but it has been covered exceptionally well. I am using a little bit of powder (loose) just to set it. xx

  5. I didn't get on with the Nude Magique BB but this looks great on you Laura! It does look strange in it's green form though! I reckon I'd need Peach for fatigued skin - having said that I also feel dull at the moment - going to have a look at the website! xx

  6. I ordered this yesterday, but the anti-fatigue version. I pretty much hated all the BB creams I tried and found that they did nothing for me, but I was intrigued by this CC as soon as I saw it, because I've been really impressed with some of L'oreal's primers and serums within the last year or so. I did google it to have a look at a couple of reviews forst, and was really impressed by the before and after photos I saw from people who had used the same one as you! Fingers crossed the one I've got will be as good.
    And no, I'm not away for good - I'll be back at the beginning of July :)

    1. Hi Sweetie, let me know how you get on with the anti-fatigue version, it intrigued me. I have a L'oreal serum/primer waiting to review think its a dupe to a certain chanel version. x

  7. The CC cream looks great and very natural on you! I recently purchased a CC cream as well from a Korean brand Tony Moly but I found the colour to be a bit light for my skin tone (sadly it only comes in one shade...). I'm a bit skeptical about Western BB or CC creams.

    1. This one only comes in the one shade but apparently adapts to the skin tone - maybe worth a try. xx

  8. I wanted to test was the last time when I went to Monoprix, but I have not had time, however, I feel that the color is not dark enough?

  9. If you haven't found a decent BB cream yet, you should try the Dr Jart regenerating BB cream, I really can't speak highly enough about it :)
