L'oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Review

BB Cream!  A little coverage for a natural finish.  There are several BB Creams that have hit the drugstores lately and L'oreal Magic BB Cream is one of them!  Most products don't work for me because I have dry skin and most of the reviews I look at for any foundation or concealer is usually gravitated towards oily skin (Not helpful to me =.=).  So I thought I would do my own "foundation" coverage reviews for us dry skin girls! Starting with this one =)


Product & Packaging:
The product comes in a squeeze tube and contains 1.0 Fl.oz. of the product inside.  The price for this product varies on where you purchase it but the website states it is $10.95.  This BB Cream currently offers only 4 shades: deep, fair, light and medium. The color I received is in light.

The tip is very narrow, making it easy to control how much product comes out.  I would definitely purchase this if it came in a bottle with a pump (hint hint L'oreal).  The product comes out white with "skin toned" colored flecks in it and when blended it adapts to your skin color.  This BB Cream is a 4 in 1 beautifier!  It is suppose to hydrate, correct, even and perfect the skin giving us a flawless and natural finish.

On Me:
Everyone applies BB Creams differently and I prefer to use my fingers.  I feel like it smooths it out better without wasting the product.  So I have plenty of scars from my existing battle with acne on my cheeks.  Here are a few photos of how it looks before and after application.  Remember that it is a BB Cream so it is not meant to be full coverage.

It applied and blended great!  It leaves a very smooth satin like feel to the skin, it truly does look like you have nothing on.  I would like to say with a full face on (blush and highlighter), it looks great and does not leave a white cast washing you out in photos.

I thought I would share the other side as well since this is the side that has the most scars.

 -2 layers-

  • Affordable
  • Easy to blend
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Hydrates
  • Lightly covers blemishes
  • Range of colors (only 4)

  Although they only have 4 colors (deep, fair, light medium), the product does infuse with the beads to match your skin tone.  I do think that they should come out with a few more colors.  I have really dry skin and I have to say that this product didn't enhance the dryness at all.  No dry patches on my face or seeping into my pores or smile lines.  It gave a natural finish and more like a satin velvety look.  Since I do have dry skin there was no need for a setting powder.  It did minimize the look of my pores and blemishes without covering them completely.  Adding a second layer covered them a little more but no drastic change.  This product like any other BB Cream is more for girls that have little blemishes or redness and wants a cover up that is heavier than a tinted moisturizer but lighter than a foundation.  It is great for everyday wear and brightens up a dull face.  I personally like a light to medium coverage that is build-able so I don't have to use concealer, however, I like how this product covers my redness and minimizes my pores.  Perfect for a quick 10 minute look when I go to school or just the store.

I hope this review and the swatches were helpful.  Be sure to try it out if you're interested!  There are a few more BB Creams that I want to try out, since the "American" BB Creams are slightly different than the "Asian" ones.

Disclaimer: Sample products were sent to me for product review from Shespeaks, I am not getting paid for my review.. as always everything is my honest opinion.
