L'Oreal No Makeup Makeup Range - First Impressions

It's unusual for me to go out and buy (almost) an entire makeup range in one go, but having seen L'Oreal's gorgeous no makeup makeup featured on several blogs over the past couple of months, I just couldn't resist. Featuring a BB Cream, bronzer and peachy blush as well as seriously Instagram worthy highlighters in both palette and liquid form, the whole range promises to give you a beautifully natural and effortless, "I woke up like this" glow. As that is pretty much exactly what I want to look like, particularly in the summer time, and because the products looked so pretty across my social media feeds, I didn't think too hard before giving into the hype. I've only been trying these out for a little while, so this will be something of a first impressions post, but no doubt my favourites will feature in some upcoming makeup looks I'm planning on putting together over the summer months.

Bonjour Nudista Skin Tint BB Cream


L'Oreal Bonjour Nudista Skin Tint BB Cream

Nicely packaged in a pretty, lightweight and portable tube, this looks like the perfect base to take away with you on a summer holiday. It's available in 5 shades (Light, Medium Light, Medium, Medium Dark and Dark), and offers a breathable formula, light coverage and a luminous glow.

The shade Medium Light is a good match for my skin tone, and the product feels beautiful to apply, almost like a face cream. Unfortunately, no matter how much I put on, it seems to disappear into my skin like a face cream too, providing me with a coverage so sheer I might as well not have bothered applying it (or indeed buying it) in the first place. It's a shame, as it looks like such a pretty product, but while I am much more a fan of lighter base products these days than I used to be, I still like them to provide at least some coverage. So, unfortunately, I am not a fan of this one.

Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops


Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops in Bellini

This versatile liquid highlighting product is available in two shades, Champagne and Bellini. With it being summer, I opted for the warmer, decidedly golden goddess like Bellini. Housed in a not particularly travel friendly glass bottle with a messy drop applicator, it is nevertheless a beautiful product, offering all the peachy, shimmery goodness anyone could want. You can use this in a variety of ways, but my current favourite is to add a couple of drops to my foundation to add a subtle, all over sun-kissed glow.

Back To Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder


L'Oreal Back To Bronze Matte Bronzing Powder

This is described as a soft matte bronzer with no shimmer or glimmer, perfect for adding a natural bronzed glow to the skin. The colour is warm without being too orange, and looks beautiful dusted over the high points of the face as an all over glow. It's quite pigmented, so a light hand is needed, but I think it would also be a great product for contouring with if that's something you like to do. A really nice useful bronzer to keep in your stash.

Life's A Peach Blush Powder


L'Oreal Life's A Peach Blush Powder

A gorgeous warm blush that actually smells of peaches! Again, this is heavily pigmented and a little goes a long way, but it really does look so beautiful on. Along with the bronzer, I've been wearing this a lot since I got it. The two together give the most gorgeous, healthy summer glow. If you're not into the highlighters so much, you could skip those in favour of these two products in order to create that warm, bronzed look without the sparkle.

L'Oreal La Vie En Glow Highlighting Powder Palette

Just like the liquid highlighter, this highlighting palette is available in warm and cool toned options. I went for the warm, and I love it! You can wear all four shades together for a super glowy look. I have tried this and kind of love it, but it is a little too much for everyday wear for me, so I will save it for my next date night. For a softer glow, the two lighter shades are beautiful and very wearable, and I can see all four working as eyeshadows too, although this is something I have yet to try. If you are a highlight fan then I would definitely recommend this, as there are so many lovely options for combining the different shades together.

The BB cream aside, I have no regrets about buying any of these products and I'm sure I will be getting plenty of use out of all them throughout the warmer months. If you're looking for some new makeup to give you that natural, glowy, beach goddess glow this summer, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend L'Oreal's No Makeup Makeup range. The best thing is, it won't break the bank either, so more money for bikinis!

Have you tried any of these products?

  2. The BB cream offers a light coverage, at least on my fair skin looks pretty good. Sorry to hear that it didn't work for you. As for the bronzer and the blush they are both two lovely products, worth their cost. I love your photos Kate! Well done!

    1. Thanks Helene! I'm glad you like the BB cream, I'm sure those who like a sheer base will enjoy it as it is so light and comfortable to wear. Unfortunately I need a little bit more coverage! x

  3. Too bad for the BB cream, I am a fan of BB creams, I love the lighweight formula and medium coverage but if one disappears into the skin, then it's no good. I love the packaging of these products, so elegant xx

  4. The only one I would have been interested in is the BB Cream, and as you are not a fan I don´t think I will try it.

  5. The colours are gorgeous. Highlighter heaven. It's a shame you didn't like the tint. You might like "The Body Shop" BB tint. I love it. The packaging and flat lay is pretty as always Kate : ) xo

  7. I've heard loads of things about this new collection but haven't seen it in my local superdrug at all! I really want to pick up the blushers, I've heard they smell amazing and also are actually lovely quality! I really love highlighter drops but totally agree, they can be so messy and just aren't travel friendly (I'ms so proned to being clumsy I know I'd drop the glass bottle!) xx

  16. I am sorry you got disappointed in the BB cream. I also like lighter ones, but no coverage? Seriously? What's the point of making a product that doesn't fulfill it's basic function? I am generally not a fan of highlighters, but these ones look really cute. The packaging is great as well.

  26. This new collection by L'Oreal is very tempting. I would love to try everything. Sometimes BB creams are a hit or miss. I own a few which did not work that well for me. The blush and the highlighter are so pretty. :-) I am not sure if it is available here in Philippines. :-) Love all your pictures.
