Are you a big fan of L’OREAL makeup products? Well it seems that not only are they on the CC Creams bandwagon, they’ve also created the Nude Magique BB Blush. Confused? Don’t be. If we’re lucky, they might be on to something here, another must-have in our handbag, perhaps?

L’OREAL says: Transparent blush texture that turns pink on contact with skin for an instant glow. Magic!
Volume: 15 ml,  £7.99 (UK Price) See below for more details on where to buy.

Nude Magique BB Blush Review

You’d be pleased to know that this transparent texture blush is NOT sticky at all. It’s looks rather gel-like, doesn’t it?

There’s more… (blending)

What I really like about this BB Blush is the fact that it hasn’t got any fragrance or distinctive scent, which is very common with most drugstore brands. To be honest, I’m unsure as to why this is called BB, but perhaps because it feels like a balm??  Or they’re just hyping it up? If you’re hoping for skin benefits, you wouldn’t find it with this blush – this purely is just aimed to give you that natural rosy cheeks, and that’s about it! Although I must say, I didn’t see any parabens in the ingredient list, if this chemical concerns you.

But the application couldn’t be simpler and easier. You literally need half a size of a pea! Not pea-sized, just half of it to start of. The swatches above, I got carried away a little. LOL.

♥  Once on your cheek, simply rub it gently (and evenly) on to places where you want to create that rosy cheeks effect! It’s as if you’re putting a BB cream on, but only on that portion of your face.

It doesn’t feel greasy nor turn greasy later either and the colour has a good lasting power for what it is and for how little I used on this pic — perhaps approx. 4 hours tops? During application, if you rub it in a little bit more, the colour will start to fade away, which I’ve noticed when I did the swatches on my hand earlier. So, there’s still a solution in case you went overboard with rosiness on your cheeks with this BB Blush. Phewww…

So, could this be the ultimate ‘universal blush’?  And remember, a little goes a long way!

  • Erm, I am a massive blush addict but this is not floating my boat. What exactly is the “BB” element in this? Does it contain any vitamins like normal BB creams? I think L’Oreal are just playing on the fact BB creams are popular to flog this to us. Also 4 hours where is not great in my opinion…

    Finally – does it contain the dreaded parabens?! I know you hate them too! xx

      Hi hun! I too asked what on earth is the BB element here when I first saw this LOL. And I think it’s practically just because it feels like a balm in your hand! hahaha. Nowhere near a BB, in my opinion, but that’s the same as the CC creams they have as well, nowhere near the original CC creams I know. Ohh, no there are no parabens on this, well at least it doesn’t say on this little tube anyway. hahaha. Because I wore this very lightly, I thought 4 hours was pretty good, especially compare to some of the ones I tried, I don’t like that heavy blush effect, so this pretty much does the job for me.

  • Wow, this looks like an amazing product!!! It looks great on you too!
    You are so adorbs!!!

  • I’ve heard so many great things about BB creams and I have yet to try them! And I’m somewhat obsessed with makeup too. I love how light and natural it looks on you (you are stunning by the way!). So glad to now be following you here! Looking forward to reading more.

  • Interesting post! I dont like how L’Oreal basically took Smashbox O-Glow lipgloss and stuck the trending ” BB cream” hype to this blush. I’m glad you think it is a great product (looks wonderful on you), but I didn’t like the un-originality of it

  • Wow, very pigmented. Other than using the BB cream for no apparent reason, it seems like a nice blush. Good to know it doesn’t have a scent, I feel like I’m becoming more intolerant towards fragrance these days… it follows you!

      Thanks from dropping by hun! Yes, BB cream is just to hype it up, but it’s a good blush for me nonetheless, and yes I’m not too keen on fragrance too, glad we’re the same! xx

    • Donah D. Sweetjellybean

      Yes it does! xx

    • Donah D. Sweetjellybean

      Same here Terri, the natural look was what sold me to this!

      Let me know hun if you did grab one of this hehe. I’m sure it would look great on you too! x

  • This looks okay! I already have a favourite blush so I won’t be trying it though! XD I tried the orange CC cream but it was bright orange, so scary! I have a feeling the “Korean inspired” items from L’Oreal aren’t great… >_<

    I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award, I hope you can post about it!
