@LOrealParisUSA #MagicBBCream Something New Under the Sun! @SheSpeaksUp

There's nothing new under the sun.

I stopped being excited about makeup back when all products seemed the same and it was just too darn expensive trying each new product, hoping against hope to find something that was perfectly right for me and my complexion.

I'm very fair, you see...always have been. I envy women with olive skin tones that look so flawless. Mine never does. I'll have patches of pink or red here and there, pores the size of moon craters, and "heavy" makeup just looks like... well... heavy makeup.

I will admit I did get a little excited a few years ago when mineral cosmetics were first introduced. Finally! Something that looked natural but provided good coverage to even out my skin tone, but didn't look and feel like you'd just spread pancake batter on your face and let it dry.

But that excitement quickly wore off too when I realized that mineral cosmetics, while looking terrific for a few hours, just don't last the whole day long. And I didn't like the idea of filling my pores with tiny "dust" particles.

So...like I said...there's nothing new under the sun.

Well, surprise! Rrecently I got the chance to try a brand new product from L'Oreal Paris called Magic BB Cream.

"Magic" is the operative word.

This product is phenomenal. It looks just like any other face cream, white in color when you put it on, but then something "magic" happens... L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream has these Beautifying Beads, which are encapsulated pigments containing ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E.

The "white" cream you just put on your face like a normal moisturizer has suddenly -- like magic! -- released these pigments and created color to give you beautiful coverage. This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 beautifying actions in 1: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects.

I watched, transfixed, as the white cream gradually turned to foundation color, giving me what felt like the results of using several cosmetic products instead of just one. My skin was moisturized, primed, and had flawless coverage. No other cosmetic products required. Well, except maybe for a slash of lip gloss and a touch of blush!

So stop wasting money on cosmetics that don't do what they claim. L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream is the all-in-one beauty solution that does it all - prime, perfect, hydrate, and correct skin.

Finally, there IS something new under the sun!
