L'OREAL NUDE MAGIQUE CC CREAM FOR ANTI DULLNESS £9.99

After using a foundation that had lavendar pigments to help with dullness and finding it help, I thought I would give a CC Cream a go.Now, we have BB Cream or beauty balms, now we have CC cream, or colour correctors. There seems to be a new fad in double alphabet type creams going around.

L'Oreal bought these out a couple of months ago, a different colour for dinner reasons. Dullness is something I do suffer with, especially after a long day at work so it's quite nice to brighten to skin up. As you can see it comes out purple, which is quite scary, and as you apply and rub it in it turns into skin colour. It's a tad orangey and a little bit dark for me if I'm honest, so I can't use too much and I can't wear it on its own as a foundation.

I've been wearing it underneath my foundation as a base and if I'm honest, I'm really not seeing much difference. My skin doesn't look any brighter than without it on. For a tenner it seems a bit much for something that didn't really do anything for me. It's a shame as well as I love the idea behind it.

It hasn't put me off using CC Creams, I would love to find one that actually does something so if you have any suggestions?

What do you think of these alphabet creams?

  2. I'm intrigued by CC creams but I've yet to try any. I'm really pale so I think this particular one would be too dark. Nice idea of them though!
