L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream

So, like any good student, I sign up for any freebies going, and was sent a little sample of this through the post along with L'Oreal's new foundation. Unfortunately it was the medium tone, which was waaaay too dark for me and made me look like I'd been tangoed! Even then, though, I could see the potential of this product. I noticed a girl at my work had it and she loved it, so when I saw it on a deal in Superdrug the other day I snaffled it for my collection. Bad Emma- must stop spending!

Anyhoo, this BB cream isn't a BB cream in the classic South Korean sense, in fact it is almost nothing like those creams. For one thing it isn't a cream, and it isn't skin toned at all. When you squeeze this out, it is very runny, VIOLET, with little blue beads in it. The idea is that the beads burst on your skin and somehow cleverly adapt to your skin tone. This concept literally blows my mind, I don't get how that can work unless there is a foundation inside the bubbles already? Sigh. Anyway, it does work and you can see the liquid changing colour on your skin as you rub it in. It does change colour a little in the minutes after application, so I tend to put it on, then check it after five mins to either top up or adjust any lines that have magically appear.

Once on it really feels feather light and you feel fresh faced, but still covered. For day-to-day wear this is a really good product at a great price. They are currently buy one get one half price in Superdrug with all the L'Oreal products, and in Boots they are two for £14. I also got a lovely lippie which I will review next!

8/10, might repurchase if I don't find another BB cream I prefer first.
