Review: Loreal Nude Magique BB Cream

This is one of those products that has been sitting at the back of my makeup collection for some time now and have recently decided to give it another go. When I first used this BB cream I absolutely hated it, but now after giving it a second chance I've really grown to love it. This is the only BB cream that I've ever used as I usually prefer something with a fuller coverage due to my acne prone skin, but as it's getting slightly warmer here in the Uk, I wanted to swap my usual base for something lighter. 




At the time that I picked this up from Boots there were only two shades, light and dark, though this may no longer be the case as it was quite a long time a go now. I'm quite fair and the shade 'light' is the slightest shade too dark for me but one that I can make work when blended out. This particular BB cream is different to most on the market as it contains smart pigment capsules which change colour as the liquid is blended into the skin. As you can see from the photos, when you first apply this its is a light coloured but as you blend it in   it becomes more suited to your skin tone. I will admit that this is very gimmicky, but it seems to work well enough for me.

Contrary to what I originally thought about BB creams, that they are extremely light with little, to no coverage, this one built up to give a medium coverage, which when applying concealor wherever needed was spot on for me! This wouldn't be a base that I'd wear on a day to day basis, but for those warmer days when I want to quickly apply my makeup and go. I apply this with fingers as I find it warms the product up nicely, then blend using my Zoeva Silk Finish brush. 

Overall, I'm very glad that I gave this BB cream another chance, and just in time for spring/summer too! Have any of you tried this one out? What's your favourite BB cream? I'd love to hear your recommendations.
