L'Oreal Nude Magique CC Cream Anti Redness - Superdrug £9.99
I'm a sucker for a bit of marketing ... have I ever mentioned that? So when I saw the world be introduced to a new formation on my beloved BB cream I just had to get involved. The CC cream is a more problem specific version of the Nude Magique BB cream I raved about here. This version of the BB cream is one of my all time favourites so I had high hopes for this CC cream formation.
The creams come in 3 formations Green - anti redness, Purple - transforms tiredness and Apricot - revives tired skin. I get quite a few pimples, spots and have redness around my nose so went with the green anti-redness formation of the cream. It has the same consistency as their BB cream but for me with this particular shade thats where the comparison kind of ends.
It doesn't blend as well onto my skin tone and leaves me a little green. I thought this might have been just me thinking about it too much as I'd watched the apple green formula try and blend into my skin but after wards my boyfriend did utter the line 'wow is the hulk look in at the moment or something' confirming my suspicions that this does leave a green a tinge to my face. It also doesn't blend out to my skin tone and leaves my face a lot darker than my natural skin tone. I've tried to photograph this above not sure it comes across as well as my real life tinge but I gave it a go.
However despite all this it is a good base for my foundation right now. I have massive winter skin with lots of pimples and random red splotches this gives a toned down and somewhat even base for my foundation. This however for me could never be worn alone - I adore the Nude Magique BB cream and will happily wear this without foundation over the top but sadly can't say the same about this CC cream. I will easily make my way through this tube as right now it's my go to base but I'm not sure it's right for my light skin tone or everyday wear. It's just a little too green for me - I am tempted to try the purple and apricot versions though through sheer intrigue so please do leave your links if you've reviewed them or tweet me @georginacallen
