Despite being a full-time working mother of two young children, I never leave the house without makeup. I may skip other important parts of a morning routine (sometimes I forget to apply moisturizer), but I never go without makeup on. When I was introduced to L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, I was unsure of what to expect. Could this product really hydrate, prime, perfect, and correct (as the label claims)? After a trial run in my busy weekday schedule, this product pleasantly surprised me!
Rarely does a makeup product hit the market that is truly different. Each time a new product comes out it often seems to be similar as the other products already available. L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream is an honest to goodness new, cosmetic product. When I first squeezed a drop of the BB Cream onto my fingers it almost looked like an exfoliating scrub. The cream contains tiny beautifying beads that contain pigmented liquid. I applied the BB cream all over my face. The liquid inside the tiny beads instantly smoothed over my skin, perfectly blending with my skin tone! The coverage was even and felt light and matched my very pale skin without leaving a dreaded foundation line. I was, frankly, shocked!
L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream evened out my skin tone and covered minor facial flaws. It was really put it to the test for all-day wear--as an elementary librarian I am constantly on the move and the temperature in my workspace can go from comfortable to incredibly hot at a moment's notice (depending on how many little ones are in the library). Keeping makeup fresh on my face, especially makeup with a built-in moisturizer, is nearly impossible. At the end of the workday, L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream still looked fresh and felt weightless. Even after an evening of soccer practice (my son's, not mine) and grocery shopping I still had an even-looking skin tone.
I am pretty set in my ways when it comes to makeup products and while I often purchase drugstore lipsticks, my foundation typically comes from a department store. However, after trying L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, I think I am a changed woman. If I can prime, perfect, hydrate, and correct all at one time, and at a great price, why not? I am truly impressed with L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream and will be adding this product to my daily makeup line-up.
