L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream - Review, Photos, Swatches

I've been quite picky with the BB creams that I use. Most of what's available in the market doesn't suit my skin type and skin tone, has a distinct scent, and generally doesn't do anything for my skin. I got this sample of L'oreal Lucent Magique BB Cream in my October BDJ Box. I was hesitant to try it, but I thought what do I have to lose if I give this one a shot, right? I'm so happy I did. :)

This BB cream is like made for my skin. It mattifies my oily T-zone without making my dry patches more apparent. It's the perfect makeup base for me, and I also noticed my makeup lasts longer whenever I use this. It's also perfect whenever I'm a little lazy to put a full makeup on. I just use my Virginia Olsen Mineral Foundation (review to be posted soon) over it, and I'm done with my face. It never broke me out, and I don't really notice that it caused any pore clogging (blackheads / whiteheads). It looks pretty intimidating at first because of the shade, but once its blended out it becomes untraceable. I just love it and BDJ Box for including this love-in-a-tube. If it weren't for BDJ Box, I wouldn't have tried it. :)

PROS: perfect makeup base, mattifies without drying my skin, easy to blend, doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't have a distinct smell

I will definitely repurchase!

  1. How's the coverage of it? I'm always on the lookout for a BB that can hide my pores :)

    1. Hi Arian!

      I'm sorry I forgot to include this part on my review above. >.<
      Anyway, the coverage is pretty light. It helped in minimizing the visibility of my pores, but a foundation over it is really necessary if your pores is as evident as mine. I'll be reviewing another BB cream soon, something with better coverage. ;)

  2. wow! this looks nice! thanks for sharing ^_~
