L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream Review

L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream - 4 Beautifying Actions in 1:  Hydrates, Primes, Perfects, Corrects.

I had the opportunity to try Magic BB Cream made by  L’Oréal Paris.  I received a full sized sample of the BB Cream in Medium 814. This was my first experience using a BB Cream and I was pleasantly surprised. By nature, I am a skeptic when it comes to product claims.  It's one of the reasons that makes product reviews fun for me.  I love when my skepticism is silenced.  This product works.  I like the effect.  The product dispenses as an ultra light lotion which is white in color and has barely visible "beatifying beads". After application the product adjusts to your coloration.

I like that the end result it is a light finish because for day to day use I prefer not to look (or feel) overly made up.  The bare skin finish is perfect.  If I could change anything about the product I would only request MORE hydrating properties.  Since I am  41 years old young, my skin now requires a touch more moisturization than what this product offered to me.

I will likely purchase this product in the future.  I did scope out 2 of my local retailers just to make sure that I can get more should the need arise.  I didn't stock up because I am on a self imposed spending hiatus until after Easter.

Do you use BB cream? I'd love to know what's in your makeup bag!

I'd like to share a few words from L’Oréal Paris about their product:

L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: This product gives the sheer coverage needed to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in skincare benefits. With four beautifying actions, this all-in-one innovation primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates all-day, and corrects and evens skin.

To apply, simply dot on and blend with fingertips. Self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.

  1. I'm lucky just to brush my teeth some mornings let alone put on! BUT on those rare occasions that I do I prefer quick and easy products. I've heard a lot of good things about the L'Oreal BB cream and after reading this I might just have to pick some up! =)

  2. Hi Sara! Since becoming a mom I often go sans makeup so I can relate to what you are saying! This is a quick & easy option for sure!

  3. Note to self about this product. I'll definitely check out the Twitter party. Thanks for the review!

  4. Cody Thanks for stopping by! I will see you at the Twitter Party!

  5. The older I get, the less makeup I use. A good moisturizer with a powder foundation, a little blush, mascara and natural lipstick is my standard. People think I'm 10-15 years younger than I really am, so I definitely plan to stick with my regimen :)

  6. Karen Thanks for visiting! I know what you mean! My makeup/skincare regimen has changed with age as well. I'll be celebrating birthday #42 in May!

  7. I'm a BB cream addict. I'm actually doing a BB cream project in my blog right now, where I try to test as many BB cream brands as I can.

    I have an inkling towards Korean BB cream brands, though. To me they're superior to Western brands in terms of quality and how they suit Asian skin better (I am Filipino, after all). I've tried Avon's and Garnier's BB Cream and they were really blah.

    Anyhow, some of my favorite BB creams are:
    Missha Signature Wrinkle Filler BB Cream
    The Face Shop Power Perfection BB Cream
    Skin79 Triple Function Beblesh Balm
    Etude House Precious Mineral Bright Fit BB Cream

    I have reviews of all those posted in my blog in case you'd like to see swatches. :)

  8. I've been using BB cream but haven't tried the one by Loreal yet. Been using their White pefect range though.

  9. I've never used a BB cream, but it certainly sounds like it's a nice and easy option.
    Thanks for sharing,

  10. I have never been a huge fan of makeup myself. If I do wear make up, I like to keep it simple and don't want products that cake up and make my acne issues look worse.

  11. I try this BB cream too- I really like it-cut make-up time down and for everyday - like to get a face on in under 15 minutes =)
