The BB Battle: L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier

September 3, 2014

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day holiday! I didn't post Monday because, well, I was taking a break and we were pretty busy all weekend...so there wasn't much time devoted to this little blog.

Today I'm going to continue the BB Battle, and the product that I'm sharing has been the one I tend to grab most often, surprisingly, because it was not a loving relationship at first! Ready for the third round? Let's get to it...


L'Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. Uhhh, where to start. It's weird. Honestly, when I first opened it I was a little confused. It was white, with little specs in it. I thought that I picked up the wrong product! I went with it...and it changed color (magic?). I suppose that is the "beautifying beads" that claim to do wonderful things for your skin.

This BB cream is what I would describe as a light coverage. The color I purchased was medium, but it's a lighter shade than other "medium" shades I've used. However, because of the light coverage, it blends well.

For application, I've been using my hands or a foundation brush. It seems to work best because it "activates" the product better than a sponge.


To say I was skeptical the first few times I used this would be an understatement. I really didn't think it would work. I tried it twice then ended up throwing it in the back of my makeup drawer.

One day I was going to run some errands and didn't want much on my face, so I gave it another try. Honestly, the more I use this BB cream, the more I like it. It leaves a matte, velvety finish on my skin. With that said, if you have dry skin, you may not like that aspect.

Has anyone else tried this BB cream? Were you as skeptical as I was?
