I have something brand new and exciting to tell you about today! So BB creams were massive in 2012, literally every cosmetic brand brought out their own version.
Well this year is the year of the CC cream, and L'Oreal is releasing their version in 2013! The L'Oreal Nude Magique CC Cream*
So what is CC cream I hear you ask!? Well CC stands for Colour Correction which is used for evening out skin tone and tone correcting. L'Oreal's version contains all the benefits of BB creams but with this added CC magic!
The aim of a CC cream is to help neutralise the appearance of redness, dullness or tired looking skin and L'Oreal have created 3 different creams, one for each of these problems. I chose the Anti-Dullness CC cream as I find my skin lacks radiance and often needs a boost to look glowing and lovely!
I have been testing this out all week and I cannot praise it enough!!
At first I was like "WOAH" as the liquid is thin, runny and purple!! I wasn't expencting good things at all.. But when applied it transforms into a lovely smooth foundation that adapts to the colour of your skin like magic! (Or should I say "magique"!!) It literally mimicks your skin tone and looks and feels like bare skin
It feels SO light and silky like a moisturiser, and is a real joy to apply. Once on the skin it literally feels like I don't have foundation on at all but gives a good and buildable coverage - more than than most BB creams would
I think this will be perfect for summer/holiday months where I want a little something on my face but nothing too heavy, it also contains SPF 12!
I wouldn't say that this is dewy but it does give a really radiant glow. I find my CC cream looks best used with a touch of concealer on any blemishes and a swipe of powder!

The L'Oreal Nude Magique CC Cream is not out to buy yet in shops but is coming very soon and will be a very reasonable £9.99. It will also be available in Anti-Fatigue and Anti-Redness formulas. I can't wait to try the rest of the range to see what they can do for me!
Are you a BB cream fan? Will you be trying CC creams??
