Review: L'Oreal Paris Nude Maqigue Anti Redness CC Cream


I posted this photo up on my social media recently under the heading "Foundation free" and suprisingly enough, I actually am. I never thought I would see the day I would post a photo online where I didn't have a full coverage foundation on as I can be quite sensitive about my skin as I suffer with redness and Rosacea. 

I stumbled across this anti redness CC cream that is unlike any green color correcting creams I have ever tried before. Instead of remaining green on the face it actually adjusts itself to your skin tone and turns to a light coverage foundation on the skin. 

In the photos above you can see the transformation of th hydrating green cream into a foundation. It boasts itself as a 5 in 1 perfecting cream which promises to provide flawless coverage, perfect skin tone, give a fresh dewy glow, an SPF of 20 and a 24 hour hydration. 

I would agree with most of what has been said about the product however it is not super long lasting which is my only gripe. I would powder this and still use concealer but other than that I think it is super for a light coverage product that still does a decent job of correcting any redness. I love the feel of this on my skin and it also smells great too. I apply with my fingers and you only need a small amount to cover the whole face.

I can definitely see myself reaching for this more and more coming into summer. It is also perfect for those of you who dont like going anywhere in public I.e the gym or for a walk sans slap. I just pop some of this on and I'm good to go. 

I bought this in Boots for €13.99 and the stall was looking fairly empty while I was there. So get 'em while you can! I just love it for a natural fresh faced look.

Fashion Fix: Full Skirt Style Ideas

This is a trend that has been popping up a little bit for me recently. I have to say I love th drama of the full skirts and always felt like it would be a piece that might be hard to style. I had a scour around for the best styling options I could find and this is what I came up with.

Options 1, 2 & 3 are perfect for when there is still a breeze in the air, as you can layer a light knit or shirt underneath for extra warmth. 


I adore the pop of coral in this skirt and it looks so chic paired with some nude heels and a crisp white shirt. This kind of look would be great for family events or semi formal dinners.


This bright red is stunning and the colour brightens up an otherwise neutral outfit. Pair it with a fun leopard print clutch and a statement necklace to tie a quirky look together. This is really a look that could take you from desk to bar with a few added touches.


The above skirt isn't quite a full skirt but I just love the boho hippie vibe from it. You can put s pair of tan ankle boots and a light knit with some delicate jewelry to top it all off and finish the look. This would be perfect for an outdoor event where it may be chillier in the evenings. 


The nautical vibe will never go out of fashion in my opinion. This sleek monochromatic palette of navy and white just screams Parisian chic. Of course the pop of red from the Louboutins heels don't hurt either. 

If you're looking to pick up a full skirt like any of the above without breaking the bank I suggest you check out they are having a sale at the moment just be wary of the sizes though as they can be quite small fitting. New Look also have a small selection of both plain pastel and floral full skirts so go check them out online or instore. 

Hope you enjoyed this quick fashion fix!
