In addition to losing weight (again) one of my resolutions for this year was to get my girly back. I don’t know how many times I’ve walked past a mirror and thought to myself, “Keep on walking.” I’d promised myself I wouldn’t fall into this stay-at-home rut of wearing the same clothes for an undiscloseable amount of days, throwing my hair into clips and ponytails, and letting my make up collect dust. But…here I am.
I hate to admit it but Mama June is right, there’s something to be said about putting a fresh coat of paint on the barn. It does make a girl feel pretty and damn it that’s a nice way to feel!
So, I jumped at the chance to review the new L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream.
Here’s the official rundown of what BB Cream is: “This product gives the sheer coverage needed to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in skincare benefits. With four beautifying actions, this all-in-one innovation primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates all-day, and corrects and evens skin. The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization.”
Here’s my translation: Magical Beauty in a Tube. I’m not kidding. The self-adjusting beads instantly blend to your skin tone, giving you light, even, correcting coverage. Here are my before and after pics, don’t make fun.
I know what you’re thinking, what makes this any different than any other foundation? For me that answer is weight. I am getting older and if a foundation is too heavy it accentuates the wrinkles, I mean I’m not looking for a miracle cream, I just want something to even it all out and that’s exactly what the L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream does.
And quite frankly I touch my face a lot, I don’t like to worry about wiping away make-up every time. This is also moisturizing. I have dry skin and have to be careful with make-ups making me flaky…no flakes here.
L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. and it’s available in four shades, I used “Light.” You should be able to find it in your local big box retailers and drug stores. Definitely worth it!
