L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
I was really impressed with this product. It has a very light texture, and when on it really allows skin to breathe. It lasts really well... I don't think It would last a full day and then an evening but for your average school or work day this product will see you through. It changes from a cream with little lumps in it to a smooth, light colored paste that blends very well. My favorite thing about this product is that it dries matte. I still used a little powder, but without it was light and dewy with now overly shiny areas.
I only have two issues with this product. First of all, I can just about wear this. I have it in 'light' and it is at the darker end on acceptable shades for my skin. If they had a lighter shade, I really think it would be a great seller. Also, I think i use more of this than I would if I was using foundation. Considering it is a 30ml bottle, I think it may only last 4-6weeks but for the price that isn't too bad. It isn't a bargain, but it should be within most budgets. Well worth a try :)

see the magique!
I was really impressed with this new cream as it works differently to the other brands i`ve tried so far.
It`s ideal for day wear if you like your skin to breathe and does even out your skin tone really well.
It comes out like a silvery pearlescent fluid which upon application changes colour and texture to even out your skin. It really is a pleasure to use, leaves your skin silky smooth and soft without being shiny.
I don`t think i`d use powder aswell as this as it does dry with a matte finish but without leaving your skin dry.
I think it`s definately worth trying and will use this again.

Its ok BUT....
in my opinion its just a rebranded tinted moisturiser?
Dont get me wrong, Ive never used a BB cream before but took the plunge with L'oreal as I love their products.....the cream is a bit of a shock as its white but when you rub with your fingertips the small spheres break and you end up with a coloured cream to apply. I do think the tube is very small and considering this is a daytime product you could easily go through tube a month. That said, in the summer this will be ideal as its light and provides a small amount of coverage. In essence, wear if you are confident about your skin, if you have blemishes or red areas, possibly avoid as this is quite sheer.
