“Loreal Paris Magic BB Cream” Product Review
BB Cream, CC cream, what does it all mean? Apparently BB stands for blemish balm or beauty balm, in Korean. Not sure about the name, but it is the newest fad in face products. And every manufacturer seems to have one. I got to try the Loreal Paris Magic BB Cream this week.
I have not been wearing foundation very long, as I was always bothered by the way it looked so shiny by the afternoon. But when Clinique came out with the humidity control foundation, I decided to try it. And it works well. So that is what I am comparing this new BB cream to.
The BB cream comes in a few different colors, so it is hard to get a true color match, but the fair works for me. I was a bit disturbed as it is grey colored coming out of the tube, but I smeared it all over my face. It blended quickly and took on a fair flesh color. It did not cover quite as well as the Clinique foundation, but did cover the redness in my face, I did not notice a shine in the afternoon, but it is winter, so less humidity. The real test for this will be summer. Washed off well, no break out issues.
One thing I noticed that I did not like was the BB cream colored 2 dry spots on my face a white color. I was not able to rub that off, or blend it in. I had not noticed these dry spots prior to using the BB cream. Not sure what the problem is, but if it continues, I will not continue using the BB cream.
Overall, good product. It is a lighter product than the Clinique foundation, so would be good for stay home days, or days when I am working out-of-doors and don’t want heavy foundation.
So, what do you think? Is BB cream the next make up bag must have? Which is your favorite?
