For their first shot at a "Magic" BB Cream, I'd say L'Oréal knocked it out of the park. But is it truly magical?
The L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream is available in four shades - Fair, Light, Medium and Deep. The shade that works the best with my tone is Light so that is the shade that will be featured in swatches for this post.
What the Ulta website says about the L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream:
Discover L'Oreal's 1st Magic B.B. Cream with Beautifying Beads: Encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamin C & E.
4 Beautifying Actions in 1:

- Perfects to hide imperfections

- Corrects skin for a healthy looking even complexion.
Instantly transforms to your perfect shade for a flawless bare skin finish. Over time, more beautiful skin.
As you can see from the swatch above, when you squeeze out the L'Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream the color can make you take a step back. No one is THAT pale! However, you'll also notice that it blends out beautifully and with a good amount of coverage. The micro-beads self-adjust and transform to blend into your skin tone.
It's a little too runny to apply with something like a stippling brush, so I've found the best way to apply this product is by placing some on my fingertips, dotting on my face, and using my fingertips to blend. Coverage is achieved easily and the finish looks light while correcting and hiding flaws.
I would call this the drugstore version of my holy grail Miracle Skin Transformer for sure.
L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide.
