When it comes to base products, I prefer something light and long lasting. Granted, that's not always easy to find but when there's a new addition on the market I'm always eager to check it out. Loreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint is described as a fresh feel foundation for a 'second skin' effect. At 20ml, the bottle is smaller than your average foundation and its also pumpless so you need to be careful when applying to avoid spillages. The first thing I noticed is that the texture is quite runny - a little goes a long way!However, it blends easily into the skin.
Nude Magique Eau De Teint blurs pores and imperfections providing a light base. Concealer is needed on any blemishes and redness but the result is a smooth, matte complexion. I bought the shade porcelain, which I believe is the lightest shade available. It looks quite dark in the bottle but it applies lighter on the skin. Its still slightly too dark for my skin tone, Loreal true match in ivory is a better shade match for my complexion. On my oily skin, its surprisingly long wearing but I've been blotting any shine away with the Nude Magique BB Powder. I have the light skin version which is a slightly yellow toned powder. It claims to give a matte finish for 8 hours which I don't agree with but the oil control is pretty impressive and I find it better than Rimmel Stay Matte. The powder is slightly on the chalky side, I apply with a brush (the compact does come with a sponge) and I need to swirl it around to really pick up the product. Saying that, the powder feels lightweight on the skin and doesn't give that caked on look. I'm not keen on the whole BB concept, I really think its overused but this is a pretty good powder whether you need a little oil control or just want to set your makeup. Overall, I really like both of these products - they provide a natural, smooth base that feels lightweight and comfortable to wear!
