L’oreal came out with the new Mat Magique BB essence that formulated with special formula transforming liquid to powder finishes bb liquid. It is the first bb liquid that giving matte finishes to the user. It dries pretty fast and feel light on the skin. They come out with few shades, less than 5 shades I believe and I got mine in the shade R1- Rose Ivory. It is also has SPF 50++ that could protected your skin in daily basis.
It claims ” The first powder in essence BB, lightweight watery freshness, 12 hour lasting, and poreless mattifying perfection.”
Liquid to powder. Shake well for the perfect mix of powder essence. It dries pretty fast, therefore we need to apply it quickly to get even application.
Matte glass that shows it’s exclusivity and classy. It has the moderate weight and also not bulky. Travel-friendly packaging especially for daily basis makeup. The hot pink cap giving a feminine touch into it. I believe the pink color is the range color theme.
After 6 hours application, it starts fading off. Matte finishes make my dry patches look even more obvious .Yet the texture is pretty light and easy to work with. The only highlight that I would like to speak out is the unique applicator stick with a small bulb end. It is not user- friendly and could only picks up some of the liquid products. Maybe that is the way of applying it, little by little or need to work at one area first before moving to another area.
Besides that, it does giving poreless mattyfing finish but for dry skin, the dry patches would visible yet for combination/ normal skin, it works perfect! We could compare it with high end products, and I believe it could last up to 6 to 8 hours.
I would be giving 6/10 rating as I have very dry skin and matte liquid product is not for me. Yet, for normal/ mix complexion, this bb essence is great for you. I heard couple of praises from my friends and I believe it really does work amazingly on combination/ oily skin. Try it out!
Thank you for reading.
