Come the sunnier days I don’t like to wear a thick foundation like I normally do, and I want something with a little less coverage, so for a while now I’ve been trying to find the perfect CC Cream. While browsing around in Boots I came across the L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique CC Cream which claims to work with your natural skin tone and help neutralise the appearance of redness, dullness or tired looking skin. Sounds exactly what I was looking for, and I picked out the ‘anti-fatigue’ version which was meant to help wake up your complexion. Sounds great right? Sadly this CC Cream is the most disappointing product I’ve ever bought.


This really really really doesn’t work with my natural skin tone. As you can see from the photo I’m quite pale, and this has decided I’m very orange. When I started to apply this to my face I thought it seemed a bit orangey, but though it would probably go the more I blended it in, but sadly even when blended in it still thinks I’m orange. I can’t comment on how the CC Cream works itself, as I’ve not tried to wear it to find out, as I really don’t like to go outside looking like an umpa lumpa.

I’m really disappointed with L’Oreal Paris, especially as I liked to think of them as quite a decent brand, but this has really put me off buying another base product from them again. So back on the hunt for the perfect CC Cream…
