Loreal also has some new offerings, including their Nude Magique BB Cream, available in 2 shades: Light Skin & Medium Skin. I did not purchase these, but wanted to make a few notes for you for now. Looking at the swatches above, you can see that the Medium Skin is a lot pinker than the Light Skin. Due to the fact that these self adjust with the 'colour beads' that are in them, I would go with the Light Skin if you have a warmer, more yellow toned skin, and the Medium Skin if you have a darker than fair complexion and have the cooler, pinker / rosier undertones to your skin.
When you first start rubbing this in, it feels like fine sandpaper- there are little microbeads that feel rough to the fingertips when you start blending. I believe these dissolve as you rub, and as the cream starts to 'self-adjust' the colour to your skin. Reminds me very very much of the Origins Vita-zing texture. If you were curious about that one from Origins but couldn't stomach the pricetag, maybe give this one a shot- very similar in my opinion, but perhaps this Loreal BB Cream is a little more matte. Once you're done blending, the roughness has completely gone. The coverage is very light, but it would do a great job of evening out an already nice complexion. If you like the Garnier BB Cream, I'm thinking you'd love this. It does seem to dry down quite matte, but without testing it on my face for a day, and seeing how it works with primer / powder etc, it's hard to say how long it stays that way.
Also of note, I didn't see any therapeutic skin benefits on the display for this product at all- much like the Garnier offering. The Asian brands really tote their whitening, anti-aging, complexion improving benefits, but not so the Aussie drugstore offerings. Wonder if that's more TGA related or if they simply are not the same thing?
Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Have a beautiful day,
