L'Oreal Magic BB Cream Review

Pin It
Okay, so I'm going to totally change things up on you today and talk about make-up.
You may be saying - what the heck, where are the cupcakes?!?!
Or maybe you're saying it's about time I talked about something besides food :)

Anyway....A couple of weeks ago I was given the opportunity to review L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream.  I understand that BB creams are all the rage right now and since I have never used one I was excited to give it a try.

Basically BB Cream is an all-in-one cream that is supposed to  hydrate, correct, even and protect, giving you a flawless, bare skin face. To apply, simply dot it on your face and blend with your fingertips. Self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.

I've been using the product for about 2 weeks and can honestly say that I am pretty impressed. 
I used the BB cream as a moisturizer/primer and topped it with my normal Bare Minerals powder foundation. It gave me enough coverage that I would feel comfortable wearing it alone on the weekends, as long as I wasn't going out somewhere special :) It goes on nice and smooth and evens out my skintone.

Bottom line…it works much like a tinted moisturizer and primer all-in-one.  Would I buy it?  Probably not since I already have a primer I really like, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it and I will definitely continue to use it until I finish the tube. 

L'Oreal Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fluid ounce and is available in four shades at mass food and drugs stores nationwide .  For more information about L’OrĂ©al Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, check out their website HERE and follow them on Twitter.

Have you tried any BB Creams?  If so, what brand do you like?

  1. I like the idea of a BB cream. I've never tried it. I keep makeup to a minimum and just apply a little lip gloss most of the time.

    However this would work well for me and anyone else who doesn't want to spend too much time on makeup.
