Foundation Review Series: L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream

You may remember my first ever trial and review of a CC (colour-correcting) cream - the Chanel CC Cream - which I found to be slightly underwhelming. CC cream has become a big thing in Asia, and is just making its way onto Australian shores in the form of the L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique CC Cream.

Today I review this CC cream for you all, so settle into your seats, and let's get on with the show :)

L'Oreal has packaged this cream in a tube almost identical to their original Nude Magique BB Cream, with some green gradient accents here and there, which I will explain later on in this post. The dispenser is exactly the same as the BB cream's - a small syringe-like tube opening.

The Nude Magique CC Cream aims to correct and conceal redness in your skin, and as such comes with a green tint - to counteract the redness in the skin - hence the green accents in the packaging. The product itself is reminiscent of the Nude Magique BB cream - the light, liquid texture, the micro-beads, the whitish formula that changes colour when rubbed into the skin.
The formula comes in one standard colour which is supposed to match your skin tone once applied. I found that this was slightly dark for my NW20-ish skin, though it wasn't too obvious. This also leans quite strongly on the warm side.

I actually really like this CC cream. The very slight colour mismatch actually gives me a little bit of warmth, and the finish is a beautiful dewy texture.

Applied with fingers

I love the coverage of this CC cream. It provides medium coverage, and covers my pores and acne quite well. I recommend applying it with fingers because a little body heat really helps the product sink into the skin and create a beautiful glowing skin.

It lasts for hours on the skin without melting off, fading away, or sinking into fine lines or crevices on the face. It also does a great job at neutralising redness - the areas around the acne spots that you can see in the pictures above were quite obviously red and spread over a pretty wide area, but in the picture above, the redness has been concealed in most areas.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic effort from L'Oreal Paris. I love the texture, lasting power, coverage and anti-redness qualities in this CC cream, and how (relatively) affordable it is as well.

The L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream is available now and retails for AUD 26.95 per 30mL tube.

This sounds really nice. I'd love to try it but not sure how it would work with my oily skin- I tend to avoid foundations/bases with a dewy finish

Oh wow, what a surprise! I've been so sick and tired or see skin adjusting formulas that don't match, sorry it was a tad bit dark but I think this would fit me just nicely! Or at least it'd match up to my neck (lol!) I've been so curious about trying a high end cc cream...but not until I use up more of my bases! Thanks for sharing, it does look great on you!
