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.
