Today's review is on the Loreal Paris Nude Magique BB Powder in Light. I brought this in Boots for £6.99 which is a reasonable price for a face powder. It comes in 2 different skin tones; light and medium. The powder has pigments which adjust to your skin type to create a long lasting, matte looking complexion.
This powder claims to be a 5 in 1 'velvet skin beautifier' that 'mimics the 5 dimensions of velvety nude skin'. It claims to produce;
- No shine
- A smooth resurfaced finish
- Undetectable coverage
- A Fresh Look
- 8hr Matte complexion
I brought this powder in light to match my pale skin tone and it does so perfectly. The powder itself is light, thin and gives a gorgeous natural finish with no chalkiness or caking. I used this a setting powder on days when I apply foundation and as a base on days when I only apply some concealer. As a setting powder it keeps everything in place perfectly and doesn't budge throughout the day. It also helps to conceal any loss of coverage from your foundation throughout the day when using it to touch up. If used on its own it produces a look of natural skin but better, helps to even out your skin tone, reduces shine and gives a velvety satin finish.
I really like this packaging - yes it is plasticy but it serves its purpose perfectly. When you open the first layer it shows the pan of powder, if you open this up underneath it has a mirror and a flat sponge applicator which is perfect for touch ups during the day. I like the fact that it has all of these products in one as it makes it a perfect item to pop into your handbag for touch ups throughout the day.
This is a lovely BB Powder - it stop shine and stays in place for up to 8 hours as it claims. It has a velvety satin finish and helps to even skin tone. This is a great powder and I will be purchasing again due to its long lasting capabilities.
Why not check this out for yourself and let me know your experiences :)
