The new Magic CC Cream from Swedish brand Palina is presented as a colour correcting and hydrating skin base with natural looking high coverage and a lightweight feeling. It’s not supposed to cling to lines or pores and should wear all day, packed with antioxidants and SPF 20, comes in 6 shades. Retails for 495 SEK (right now 395!) at palina.se.
It sounds good, and it feels just as good! This CC cream is thin and super blendable, it has a nice silicon slip to it (inci at the end of the post) and it totally spackles pores and lines into a beautiful even surface, as if it had a pore filling primer built in! The coverage is impressive and it still manages to look like real skin. The texture isn’t tacky but will stay emollient so I felt the need to set under my eyes and between my brows to keep it from creasing.
Shade-wise Stockholm is perfect for me right now, it’s a neutral shade leaning slightly warm. Later this summer I will definitely reach for New York which is slightly darker and warmer.
After about nine hours it hasn’t turned gunky or separated on the skin like many products do, instead it kind of.. disappeared? The coverage is half way gone, but the skin still looks even and perfected. So strange! I will keep experimenting to see how it feels in the long run. But in all – great launch Palina, well done!
Palina Magic CC Cream comes in a tube with a pump. Love me some good ol’ hygiene. And those tubes look really nice as a bonus!
