Review | L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Blush Universal Rosy Blush


L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Blush Universal Rosy Blush*
£7.99

This works in the same way as Smashbox's O Glow Intuitive Cheek Colour but is nearly a third of the price. It's a clear blush which turns pink on contact with skin to give a natural glow. While it's totally faddy, I love it.  It wouldn't matter to me if it came out of the tube already pink, in fact it would help me avoid applying too much!

This works best on pale to light medium skintones as it is very Barbie bubblegum pink.  The gel texture is even easier to blend than a cream formulation.  I keep it in my make up handbag kit and it doubles up as a lip tint if I need a bit of perking up.  

The only issue I have with this blush is why they've called it a 'BB' blush.  What on earth?! 'BB' stands for Blemish Balm and there's nothing about it which suggests it contains any ingredients which could perform a skincare role.  It's just a good example of marketing gone wrong.  How they got this past the advertising watchdogs beats me.

I've been using this daily for almost two months and it's still going strong, so it's a definite future repurchase.

  1. Really nice idea, does it pull the foundation off at all?

    1. Nope, that's the beauty of the lighter gel formula, much easier to blend over foundation than cream I find.

  5. A bit gimmicky and don't even get me started on it being dubbed 'bb' but I'm totally sold on this product - I love really pink blushes and I like the idea of this adapting to your own skin too - another thing for the shopping list!
