BB Creams are a big trend happening in the beauty industry right now. I'm intrigued by them and have experimented with some including Boscia's B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ and Smashbox's Camera Ready BB Cream. When I saw a sample in a magazine for L'Oreal's Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, I thought I'd give it a try. The cheapest I could find it online was at Walmart.com for $7.96 but most stores sold it for around $10.
It comes out almost white and has a strong smell. Apply minimally because eventually it will darken on your skin.
The sample I received was "Light" which is the second darkest shade. Fair is the lightest so perhaps I would have better luck with that one. As you can see looks like a bruise on my hand where I swatched the item.
Here's the full look. I felt like the color was so orange on me. Thankfully just tried it on at home during the weekend so no one noticed my mismatched face. I'm wearing MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer, L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, and Naked Princess Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss from my October Goop Birchbox.
I definitely felt like it covered all the flaws and evened my skin tone. But just in a completely different shade. This shade was really dark so I'm not sure if "Fair" would be a close match. The best luck I had was with Smashbox.
Have you tried this BB Cream yet? What were your thoughts?
P.S. Excuse the cell phone pics. Broke my camera so I've been having to make due.
