When I picked up the L’Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream I did it by mistake. I was in a rush and actually wanted the BB cream, but grabbed this. It wasn’t till I first used it I realised. Here are my thoughts on the L’Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream…
Here is some information to start off with on the L’Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream….
Concentrated with light reflectors, the micro-blur technology delivers an optical blurring effect for smooth, poreless looking skin. The translucent coverage is silky smooth and evens out the look of skin tone. C’est Magique!
Now taking aside I picked this up by mistake so didn’t actually want it, I have given this a good and thorough review. I wanted to love it, I’d have settled for liking it a lot, but I do have a few issues with this and I’m hoping the images will get you to understand why.
Firstly its a tinted cream which is great. I bought it in light/medium and as you can see from the swatch its a pigmented cream which blends out to nothing. That’s half of the issue you right there, it blends to nothing at all. Now for something that’s supposed to even out my skin tone I would at least like to see some pigmentation if only minor.
The product also says it will blur out my pores leaving me looking poreless and along with the evening out my skin tone claim again I was hoping to see a bit more. But in honesty when you look at the before and after picture below I think my skin looks more red than before. Also, this did little to nothing to my pores.
What I will say which is a plus point for this product is that it did leave my skin incredibly smooth. It was a perfect base for my foundation and it also helped with that lasting longer. So as a primer (Although I don’t think that’s what its really marketed as), it does help with makeup application in my opinion.
You do need a little more than other products that are on the market which are aimed at doing the same job, in fact I would go as far to say I used twice the amount I use of L’Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream to what I use of Maybelline Babyskin (Review Here).
This also costs more than other blurring products on the market and although it has claims of helping with evening out skin tones etc, I felt it didn’t work on my skin at all.
Over all, I was really disappointed with this product. I know I picked it up by mistake but I was hoping afterwards it would be great for days when I just have a little BB cream on and I could wear it under that. In reality I have another primer now (As that’s what I am using it for) and I didn’t really need one.
L’Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream is available from Boots, Superdrug, other pharmacies and selected supermarkets. It costs £9.99 and is available on offer at present at Boots where I purchased mine on their 3 for 2 on selected makeup.
Lots of Love,
