L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream Review

So I decided to jump on the BB Cream band wagon, I see it advertised everywhere. There are so many different brands to chose from, I decided to start with L'Oreal. I have been wanting to fall in love with a tinted moisturizer for so long and I just haven't found the right one. I know this is not technically a tinted moisturizer, but that's what I wanted from it it's so much more.

Here's what L'Oreal says about it.

I bought mine from Walmart for $7.94, and when I got it home and started to apply it I was a little sceptical... Here's what I saw.

Now this was a shock to me, IT BLENDED PERFECTLY WITH MY SKIN! I was so surprised, my skin instantly looked better. It has a very mattifing effect but at the same time it gave me a glow, if that makes any sense. I pretty much could use this as full on foundation (and did). I put my MAC skinfinish medium + over it to give a little more coverage and finish my look.

My Final Grade
I had to give this product a B, because it caused major breakouts on me. It was really sad too because the product itself was AMAZ! I had tested so many products that weekend that I wasn't sure what caused the breakouts, I thought maybe it was the fact that I was outside alot and did alot of "glowing". I gave my skin a rest and let it get back to normal, before trying it again. I really had my fingers crossed that it wasn't this! Once again more new breakouts for the 3 days straight that I used it. For me it isn't right, but if your skin can handle it I think you will love this product!

  1. great post about the bb cream! I use the Marcelle (?) one and I like it. German-icure is my fave colour from the new OPI collection.

  2. hmmm Ive never used tented anything...maybe I should give it a try, thanks so much for the great tips ;)

  3. I haven't tried the Marcelle Marta, I'll look for it... I love the German-icure too, so pretty!!!

    Sara it's really lightweight and easy to use, I'm going to try a different brand once my face clears up from this one. lol

  4. I have tried a few bb creams, I got this one last week and so far I really like it.
