Ok–by now it’s NO surprise to anyone that I looooove makeup and that I can’t live without the most important part of it–my foundation! Though I’ve been currently crushing on the Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream from Loreal with summer ending I felt like it was time to switch to something with just a wee bit more coverage–enter the all new L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude makeup!
Now–for this product I decided to do something I’d NEVER done before and give you the full effect of what this product can do for you with Before and After selfies—that means–you see me with absolutely *no* makeup!! Yes, a little scary!
Before & After with L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude makeup!
Though I’m still a young 28 years old you can tell I’m on the brink of my 30s and the areas around my smile and mouth are starting to get smile creases (which I’m totally ok with, but still–I want to look my best!) also I’ve had dark under eyes pretty much my entire life and, like 99% of the population my “blank canvas” has a lot of uneven tones!
L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude makeup pros & cons
Things I Love: I really like the size of the bottle, the fact that it includes SPF, the coverage it provides, the way it blends in with my skin, the fact I put it on with my fingertips & not a brush or sponge (how I always I apply my makeup anyways….normally a no-no I know!) and the the smooth powdery finish that gives me an airbrushed look.
Things that could be improved: I feel like I have to use a lot of the product in order to achieve the level of coverage I want each day, which is a bummer because I much prefer the “little goes a looong” way feel of the BB Creme. Also since it changes from liquid to powder I always feel like I’m racing to smooth it out exactly where it should go–and although I love quick makeup that’s not really what I had in mind.
Overall I give this product 4 out of 5 stars and would absolutely buy it and use it *if* it was cheaper than my usual foundation. I’m not sure but I think they’re just about the same price point as this retails for around $12.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in 12 shades and is available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide!
