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.

Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Set Review and Swatches

Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Set 1

I was vaguely curious about the new Lavshuca Pure Blossoming Eyes Limited Edition Set released for Summer 2012 in Japan.

Lavshuca favors these little sets lately and hasn’t really updated with a major release in a while. I haven’t been following the brand lately since they release so many repetitive shades just in a new stylish way. It’s easy enough to get excited about a new design and packaging but sometimes I have to remind myself that the shades aren’t unique at all.

The Pure Blossoming Eyes Set is an example of repetitive shades however it did contain Clear Stay Eye Base which intrigued me so I ended up heading in for a purchase.
