L'OREAL Paris Magic BB Cream~Review

I'm always wanting to try the newest and latest beauty products.  When I was asked to try the L'OREAL Magic BB Cream, of course I couldn't say NO!  This little magic in a tube "gives the sheer coverage needed to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in skincare benefits. With four beautifying actions, this all-in-one innovation primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates all-day, and corrects and evens skin. The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization".

My first thought when I opened it up was how light in color and thin it was, is this really going to cover?  Will it be enough?  To apply I dotted on and blended with my fingertips.  When applied it feels sort of "gritty", which is the self-adjusting beads which will "instantly  transform and blend to your skin tone".  Once it was all blended it gave a smooth "powder-like" finish.  I immediately saw the difference in the evenness of my face, and it also corrected some of the redness as well.   I like the idea that it is light, and doesn't give a heavy feeling since I like to look as natural as possible. 

Now you can see in the picture I've worn away the "BB" logo, I have been using this product everyday.  There are days I can't find it in my makeup bin only to find it in my teenage daughter's room.  She has been using it too, and says she likes the coverage but doesn't feel it's enough for her. 

L'Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz.  It is available in four shades Deep, Fair, Light and Medium.  It is sold at food and drug retailers nationwide.

Swagbucks New Hompage Layout

Over the next 24 hours, Swagbucks is releasing a new homepage layout designed to help you earn more Swag Bucks faster! The top navigation bar is now home to the Swag Code box - access it by clicking the round button - which means you can redeem your codes anytime, anywhere! The different ways you can earn have been broken out into verbs, so you can more quickly get to what you want.

They've broken their homepage up into three "channels": On the left is the Accomplishment Channel, where you can check on your Daily Goal Meter, Daily Earning Checklist and connect with Swagbucks on Social Media. The Earning Channel is in the center of the screen and is all about ways that you can earn, from the Search box at the top to the Earning Feed filled with offers, surveys and shopping deals. You can view the feed as a list or grid. When you're ready to get your rewards, you can use the Rewards Channel on the right - at the top is a Local Deal (where available) and below that are the top 5 items in the Rewards Store - you can snag them right there, or if you don't have the Swag Bucks it'll tell you how many more you need to get it.

Not a member of Swagbucks yet? Click here to join for free and earn free rewards with me! I've already gotten 3,632 swagbucks since 2010.  Now I'm not on there as much as I should be but if I was it would be A LOT more swagbucks in there, with more Amazon Gift Card redemptions, so join today to earn!!
