FOTD & EOTD loreal nude magique bb cream, Mac Eyeshadows, essence XXXL frosty gloss

The Loreal Nude Magique BB Cream is, in my mind, a close enough dupe for Origins Vita-zing. Much like Garnier's Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream offering, it's a far far FAR cry from the BB Creams that we've come to know from Asian countries where they originate. Without the hefty price tag, I don't hate the Loreal as much as the Origins- and given that I'm using this in the winter, I'm not sure if it's less shiny than I found the Origins in the summer or not. (In this cold Perth winter weather, nothing's too much of a mid-day oily problem right now.) Like the Origins Vita-zing when dispensed, the Loreal BB Cream is a grey white 'runny' cream with tiny visible micro-beads, which seem to 'burst' and release their colour once you start blending the light cream down. I don't remember the texture of the Vita-zing being anything other than a light creamy consistency, but the Loreal Nude Magique is most definitely grainy (albeit fine) and conjures up in me every single an image of what it must feel like to be licked all over my entire face by a cat's tongue. Bizarre, but not a deal breaker for me. It's a nice enough product and while it offers completely different texture from the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector, I can see fans of the look of that one on the skin enjoying this one also. It's extremely light coverage that adds a slight evenness of skin tone. I might do a demo of this on YouTube since it's so different to anything else on the market (Origins excepted). Thoughts?...

I did a couple of different things with my lips today- using a bronze eyeliner as a lip liner base, and using a very frosty shade from Essence's XXXL Shine Gloss range. I loved the finish and the shine from the frost and will definitely be using that combination more often.

Hope you're having a Magique day wherever you may be,
