Review – L’ORÉAL Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream!

17 Feb

1.5 steps to easy perfect skin!

I bought the  L’ORÉAL  Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream in January.  I used it enough now to do a full review.  Here are my first impressions, in case you care and/or missed it :-).

What is it?

From L’Oreal –

Meet the Magic all-in-one skin BB cream, with Beautifying Beads; encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E. This mullti-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless, bare skin finish. Over time, more beautiful skin

How does it perform?

Hydrates? Sort of.

Corrects? YES

Evens and perfects?  YES

As you can see, right out of the bottle it is very white.

Here it is blended in, without and with flash.

As you can see, it blends it really easily and completely.  I am rather pale and I am using the Fair color.  It finishes sort of glowy.  It comes out more shimmery in pictures than it is in real life.

What will it cover?  

Pores

Redness, including blemishes.  I was actually surprised how well it covers and diffuses redness.

My personal thoughts –

I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I do.  I find myself reaching for it almost every day.

I don’t feel the need to use anything else in addition to this.  This makes m skin look pretty good and I don’t feel like I am wearing make up.

It diffuses and blurs any imperfections.  LOVE.

I will repurchase this because it’s  a great value and really delivers what it promises.

Some hints –

L’ORÉAL  Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream works better when used over a moisturizer especially if your skin is on the dry side like mine.

If you over apply, it will look cakey.  Really cakey.  Less is more.

It dries really quickly!  So once you have it on your skin, apply and distribute fast.

If you have drier skin near your eyes, be careful about bringing the cream too close.  It may not provide enough moisture.   I work around this by applying my eye cream liberally.

The drying may not be an issue once we are out of the arctic winter.  In which case, it will probably be amazing on my oily forehead 🙂
