Review: L'oreal Nude Magique BB Powder

Normally, I am not one to try products from L'oreal as it isn't really a high street brand I am drawn too.. until now. When I popped into Superdrug last week and saw that they had a BB line, I thought it was worth giving something a try. I have never tried a BB powder before but I am so impressed with this one which has made me want to try even more products from L'oreal.

L'oreal Nude Magique BB Powder
This is the L'oreal Nude Magique BB Powder for Light Skin (claims to be a 5 in 1 product). The beauty world seems to have gone a bit BB/CC crazy, every brand seems to have BB's and CC's but I had never seen a BB Powder. With my skin pretty well behaved at the moment, there isn't really a need for foundation so when I saw this I thought it would be perfect. And it was.

This powder covers redness amazingly. I get quite a bit of redness around my nose and on my chin and this powder alone masked it almost completely. I only had to use a tiny amount of concealer to cover the redness of a couple of blemishes. 

The coverage is great too. It is defiantly a lighter coverage compared to a foundation but it is defiantly buildable. For a lighter coverage I used the Real Techniques Powder Brush but when I wanted a fuller coverage I used the puff that came included. Even when the puff was used for a higher coverage, my face didn't look chalky and didn't cake after a couple of hours unlike some powders which is great. This powder has the best staying power of any powder I have tried from the high street. Defiantly hid my redness and blemishes for a good six hours before I had to touch up! 

I love the packaging too. Its clear on the top so you can actually see the product with a gorgeous purple outline which is slightly mirrored. The inside of the packaging is my favourite, like with many of the L'oreal powders the powder lifts up to reveal a puff and a mirror which is perfect for leaving in your handbag!

In my books this powder is defiantly a winner and I will 100% repurchase! I would defiantly recommend this powder for when your having a good skin day. This powder is available in stores and online at Boots and Superdrug and retails for £6.99. I can't wait to try some other products from the range!

Have you tried this powder? What did you think?

  2. I haven't tried this but have recently bought the foundation in this line - and I am loving it ! At first I wasn't too sure it would do the trick - but just like with the powder it can be built from light to medium/heavy coverage!
    I'm running out of my Rimmel Stay Matte so may give this one a whirl ! Thanks for reviewing :)
