L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream Review #SheSpeaks

The beautysphere has been ablaze with talk of "BB creams".  I have been wanting to try them out but figured it was a passing fad.  However, that does not seem to be the case as every day there seems to be a new BB cream on the shelf at my local store.  Thanks to SheSpeaks I received a full size tube of L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream to try.
I did my research and found that many BB creams are perfect for those days when you don't want full foundation coverage and offer the benefits of a moisturizer, primer, skin protectant.  Given L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream is a L'Oréal product, I know it is a reputable product.  L'Oréal has a long standing history in the beauty business and their products still rank among the top selling beauty products worldwide.  However, would it right for me?

L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream comes in 4 shades:
           Fair            Light            Medium           Deep

I chose to review the L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream in Deep.

When I squeezed the product out of the tube I was shocked.  It had a grey/purple sheen to it that reminded me of hair color.  I figured there was no possible way it would blend into my mocha colored skin.   Alas, I was wrong.  L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream blended perfectly.  The purplish hue came from the beauty beads which dissipate as they are smoothed into your skin.  The product did provide ample coverage but left my skin feeling a little dry much like a certain other beauty brand's mineral makeup.  Yet, it was light enough to wear daily.  I didn't have that made-up feeling.  You know that heavy weighted feeling some foundations leave behind.  L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream left my face feeling smooth and looking noticeably smooth with a pearlesque lustre.  

If you're looking for color, this is probably not the product for you as it provides a hint of color, just enough to notice you've got a little something on.  If you've got acne scars or teeny, tiny skin discolorations then L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream may provide just the coverage you're looking for.  

I've been using it daily for two weeks now and have had no breakout from the product and have received compliments on my makeup.  Will I purchase the product?  Yes.  It's L'Oréal so I know I can find it at my local grocer or mass market store and since it L'Oréal, I know it's affordable. 

Overall, this mama likes!
