L'Oreal Magic BB Cream Is Worth Every Penny!

I have to say that for many, many years now I have been somewhat of a makeup snob. I admit it although I don't like to. My go-to makeup has been a mineral based kind for so long I don't remember the last time I had a liquid makeup of any kind. So to try a new kind of makeup like this was monumental!

The makeup I tried was the new Magic BB Cream from L'Oreal. I received the product from SheSpeaks with a request to test it out for them. The snob in me was skeptical, but I said I would and I did.

Here is what L'Oreal says about it:
Meet the Magic all-in-one skin BB cream, with Beautifying Beads; encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E. This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. Over time, more beautiful skin.
Here is what I say about it:

I love it! That sounds strange coming from me.  But I can not tell you what this new Magic BB Cream has done for my skin tone. Over the years life has been hard on my skin. I grew up on a farm, have been a gardener and have worked hard all my life either in my jobs, raising my family or playing. My skin has shown the results of years of exposure to harsh things, from some small scars to a few age spots and very uneven tone.

The Magic BB Cream has been helping with all of that. I enjoy how it feels when it goes on my skin. The only other time in many years I tried a liquid makeup all I remember is feeling like my face was plastered and my pores were clogged. Not with this! It felt light and fresh on my skin, yet it covered nicely with very little product used. My whole face felt and looked great and has every time I use it.

This is what it looks like when it first come out of the tube. The cream uses the technology of self-adjusting beads that when you blend into your skin, they will transform to your skin tone. It happens immediately too, hiding little problem areas and getting your skin ready for other products to be used on it.

Now it does have special ingredients that are made to keep your face hydrated all day, but it did not make too much a difference in my dry areas. They were still dry. But I didn't expect miracles from it either. I'm not using it to replace my makeup and my moisturizer. The tone of my face though was very much improved. I noticed it even after using it only a few times. I am hoping it keeps improving as I use it.

One of the best things though is how quickly and easily it goes on and how little other makeup I need with it. I can put it on and be done and feel good with little to nothing else and go out the door. I like that, because there are times I just want a little coverage and a simple more natural look.

L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in four shades, Deep, Fair, Light, and Medium. It can found at major food and drug retailers nationwide. To learn more about Magic BB Cream or to purchase the product directly from L'Oreal, just click HERE.
