Hi lovelies! Today I thought that I would do a quick review of the L'oreal Magique BB Cream which has quickly become one of my favorite products this summer. This is such a fabulous, innovative product and a clear winner in my view!
This product comes in two shades, light and medium (the light shade is swatched in the picture above). Both shades are lovely and I find that I get a lot of use out of both of the colours. The 'light' shade suits my natural skin colour quite well and the 'medium' is a few shades darker which is perfect for when I am wearing a tan.
The product comes in a 30ml bottle which might not sound like much but a little goes a long way with this product so it actually lasts a good while before you need to repurchase. Unlike other products, the bottles of the two shades look slightly different which is useful when I am in a hurry first thing in the morning and don't really tend to read the packaging!
This is not your normal run of the mill BB Cream - it is much better than that! When you first apply the product from the packaging, it actually looks white. But, don't let that deceive you because once you start to rub it in, you quickly notice that it transforms into a tinted cream. This is due to the product containing 'smart pigment capsules' which burst once they are touched.
The capsules feel a bit like sand on the skin but they are not too rough or uncomfortable. Once the capsules burst the product starts feeling like any other cream and it is super easy to blend into the skin because the product itself is very runny in consistency.
I love how this product gives a lovely light coverage and it still lets your skin breathe. It does not at all feel heavy on the skin and just enhances your skin's natural beauty. If you want a bit more coverage, this product is buildable to a certain extent so it is able to give you a medium coverage if you need. It also contains SPF 12+ which is good although it does not replace the need to apply sunscreen.
Overall, I really love this product and use it almost on a daily basis. It has not caused me any breakouts even though I have sensitive skin and gives me just the right amount of coverage without being oily. It has such a lightweight formula that is perfect for summer when I do not like to wear a full face of foundation on a daily basis.
If you are looking for a quality BB cream then I highly recommend that you try this one. I purchased mine at Priceline for around $26.95.
