Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream (Anti-Fatigue): Review

Hi guys! It's been a while. I'm glad to be back. Today, I'm reviewing a bb cream that I recently got called Loreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream in Anti-Fatigue. This is a product with color transforming beautifying beads that help revive tired complexion.

It claims to have four beautifying actions in one. The claims are as follows: 1.) Revives tired conplexion 2.) Corr2ects the look of the skin for a healthy looking even complexion 3.) Hydrates for all day moisture and lastly, 4.) Perfects complexion.

Now let's talk about my thoughts on the product. I will divide my review into parts: packaging, color, performance and longevity.

This bb cream comes in a typical squeeze tube packaging. It contains 1 fl.oz. or 30ml. There's really nothing notable about the packaging so I really can't comment on it.

As you can see, the product initially comes as a beige color. If you look closely, you can see a bit of the beautifying beads they were talking about in the product description. Once the product is spread and the beads are broken down, it turns into an orange shade. I personally do not like this as even though I only use a thin layer, the orange tinge is very noticeable and makes my skin look darker. It works best if set with a foundation that's one shade lighter. For this review, I used a powder foundation of my shade and it helped cancel out the orange tint but still left my skin looking dark, hence my suggestion to use a foundation one shade lighter.

True to its claims, it helps revive tired complexion and corrects some discoloration on the face. I personally feel this bb creams acts more as a color correct base rather than a bb cream. It does hydrate the skin as but as it feels like a light lotion when applied. However, it has little to no coverage at all. I wouldn't recommend this product to someone with problematic skin. On the other hand, this can be used by oily, sensitive skin as I have that very same skin type and I encountered no problems with it whatsoever.

This helps my powder foundation last longer than it usually does. I'd say I can get away with no retouch for about 4 hours, which is good enough for everyday use.

Overall, it was a delight to try this product out but I feel as though I can get away with not having this in my makeup collection.

With Love,

Anna Luisa
