L’Oreal Paris recently released not 1, not 2, but THREE Nude Magique CC Creams to address different skin colour-correcting issues :-
- Anti-Redness (the green tube)
- Anti-Dullness (the purple tube)
- Anti-Fatigue (the orange tube)
(For the uninitiated, read all about CC Creams here.)
I am a big fan of the Nude Magique BB range so when I was offered these products for trial, how could I say no? Read on for my reviews, more photos and swatches…and then go shopping
The L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique CC Creams are unlike any other CC Creams I have tried. Just like the Nude Magique BB Cream, they are like a runny liquid emulsion which contains small Smart Pigment Capsules which when rubbed, transform into skin-coloured emulsion slash foundation hybrid. C’est magique!
See for yourself in my swatches…
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream (the Green One)
“Neutralises redness for a perfect nude look”
The only redness in my face is just under my nostrils – does anyone else have this problem?? – so I have only used it on this targeted area. Somehow, the green works and counteracts the redness quite well, but it is not completely concealed. Thus, I still need to use a bit of foundation or powder to completely cover up the redness.
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream is suitable for those who suffer from rosacea or those suffering from an acute breakout with raging red pimples.
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Dullness CC Cream (the Purple One)
“Neutralises dull skin tones for a perfect nude look”
Out of the 3 CC Creams, this is my favourite because I can use it all over my face and the colour adapts perfectly to my skin tone. It evens out my complexion beautifully and because it so lightweight, I don’t feel like I am wearing make-up at all. With Summer round the corner and temperatures rising, I know I will be reaching for this all the time. The only downfall is that it contains no SPF whatsoever whereas the BB version contains a tiny amount with SPF 12.
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Dullness CC Cream is suitable for those fuss-free “no make-up” make-up days.
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Fatigue CC Cream (the Orange One)
“Wakes up the complexion for a perfect nude look”
I admit that at first, I was like – WOAH! That’s very orange! But when I applied it on my face and took time to blend it in, the orange became less orange and more peachy to give off a lovely peachy glow. I only use this around my cheekbones and not all over my face to avoid looking like an Oompa Loopa!
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Fatigue CC Cream is suitable for those days when you’re looking pale and ill but need a quick pick-me-up…although you should apply sparingly…unless you like the faux orange tan look
L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique CC Creams are available to purchase at L’Oreal Paris counters in Priceline, Big W and Target for RRP $26.95.

Pregnancy update : So I’m currently back to 27 weeks in pregnancy instead of 28 weeks…why can’t the doctors make up their minds?!!! Now my pregnancy bump photos are all messed up with the timeline! Anyway, I did have a wee bit of pregnancy drama on Sunday…hence no blog post on Monday…if you’re interested, read all about it here…and if not, new beauty post should be up this Friday
