L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream Review & Swatches

LOreal Nude Magique BB Cream 13


L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique BB Cream
launched a few short months ago in the UK. I purchased mine from England within weeks because I was so terribly curious about a drugstore BB Cream. Since Garnier was one of the only drugstore BB Creams within the US at the time of this release I was terribly curious how brands like Maybelline, L’Oreal, etc….would do with the formula.

Again, we face a rather odd conundrum with a BB Cream formula that, well, isn’t really a BB Cream. With Nude Magique, L’Oreal has simply created something completely outside of the realms of a traditional BB Cream. It’s not even CLOSE to anything you’d find in a BB Cream from Korea and in some cases it’s actually entertaining they think it’s ok to call it one.

Let’s take a look at L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream.

Stila On the Road Palette Review & Swatches

Stila On the Road Palette 6

As you know, I recently blogged about the new Stila Travel Girl Palettes for Summer 2012. There are five available at the moment but knowing Stila’s track record they’ll probably do an exclusive here or there with Macy’s, Sephora, etc….

The style of palette isn’t actually new since Nordstrom first introduced their exclusive version several weeks ago entitled On The Road. This version is a collaboration between Nordsom BP (BP is a collection created by Nordie’s for teens/young women) and Stila. Stila has released a few BP collaborated palettes prior to this so I was kinda delighted by On the Road since it was a new and different variation from the typical budget palettes Stila has put out the last two years or so.

However, I think the uniqueness and specialness has worn off for me now that I know there will be five (or more) now.

Here’s my thoughts on the Stila + BP On the Road Palette, take the jump for the deets.

Hey there!

Hope everyone had a safe, pleasant Holiday weekend!

Just a quickie note…

Musings will be down starting 4 PM EST today and will be pop later this evening. But I promise the downtime will be worth the wait as my new theme is upcoming shortly.

Thank you for your patience during the chaos lately! I know I’ve had some issues keeping the site up but the new theme plus a brand new server box should keep things running smoothly.

If you experience any issues please don’t hesitate to tweet me or e-mail me!

I hope you’re going to love the new look of Musings of a Muse as much as I do!
