    This was the first BB Cream I've tried. I'm 27 and have had a long and persistent history of acne, so my skin is wrecked with scars and current acne. I've tried hundreds of foundations over the years and have never found a good balance of coverage and light-weight feel, until I came across this miracle cream. I got it just to use on my days off when I'm only leaving the house to walk the dog, but it has actually become my go-to foundation. It comes out of the bottle white and runny, but when applied like a lotion it starts to match my skin tone. What I really couldn't believe was how well it covered up my scars, and still felt like I wasn't wearing anything at all! No sticky feeling, no oil, and it doesn't wipe off on my clothes. My skin is naturally oily so as the day wears on I still have to blot, but not not nearly as much as I do with other foundations. I can sometimes go without moisturizer when using this product, but I often have dry, cracked skin that requires more hydration.

    The one draw-back is that it's kind of orange. I was on the fence about ordering light or medium, and thankfully I went with light. It is just a tad too dark and orange for me, but not so much that I think I can go with a lighter shade. It will be perfect for me in the summer, but for now I might try a different brand for the winter. For reference, I have very dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, and a neutral skin tone that tans fairly easily.

    Also, based on the other reviews here, I wonder if the company has a problem with consistency in this product. My experience has been very different from many other reviewers, so much so that it sounds like we're not using the same product.

    Oh my... I got a sample of the light, and I thought I'd try a patch on my cheek before going to work. Good thing I only did a patch, cuz it turned bright orange after about 10 seconds. I'm sorta fair, not porcelain by any means, but it was really obvious even in low light to my husband. I couldn't even keep it on long enough to know how hydrating / perfecting / etc it was.

      Product claims to adjust to correct to your skin tone but it does not. I received the "fair" but it's really a dark orange, like a bad orange tan in a bottle. I had to buy a different brand and I mix a tiny dot of this in with to use. Did they mis-label this bottle as fair or put the wrong color in this bottle? It's darker than my medium is in the same brand different formula.

          It applies very splotchy. The beaded texture is uncomfortable to apply. There is no coverage, it highlights pimples. Gives an orange finish.

                    I use this on some areas of my face to even out the tone. It absorbs well, covers well, goes on white but evens out my skintone when absorbed, and it absorbs quickly. I like it. It will be interesting to see how it works in the summer when I don't need as much moisturizing. In the other seasons I use it on top of other moisturizers because it is not moisturizing enough by itself. But I like the color and that it is not expensive. The smell is not noticeable. It is just enough make-up to enhance.

                      I was amazed at how radiant my face looked after using this. It covers better than makeup and conceals flaws at the same time. It does it all...you don't need anything else. It's like taking years off instantly. I have tried about 6 other brands of BB cream that just don't do the job that L'Oreal does. I never want to be without this now. It's my gold in a tube.

                        I consider my skin tone to be on the dark side of Fair, yet the Fair shade of this is too dark/orangey on me. I used the L'Oreal Youth Code BB Cream in Light over the summer and really liked it, but knew that it would be too dark for Fall-Winter, so I decided to try the Fair Magic BB Cream. Unfortunately, it's just as dark.

                          i bought this originally on a whim after reading about BB creams (what's a BB cream?) well i have left regular foundations in the dust. i pair this with skinceuticals 40spf sunscreen and this BB cream over it. it makes my skin smooth and LUMINOUS. i'm a brand buyer and have spent tons of $ on premium cosmetics but this is truly a great value. it's inexpensive, and it is one of the best products in my routine. i agree with the other reviewers that it comes out of the tube as a liquid, but once you spread it on your face (i found fingers works better than makeup sponges) the color blends into your own. i let it dry a bit and put on the blush/eyeshadow etc. it's definitely my go-to for a night out too.

                              This comes out of the tube white and a little runny, so be prepared, but the good thing is it almost instantly adapts to your own skin shade. It looks like my own skin, except better. I've tried high end (and expensive) BB foundations which weren't nearly as nice, and this is absolutely my favorite. I use this one exclusively now and am very satisfied with it. This foundation proves you don't have to spend a lot of money for a good product. I use a light dusting of translucent powder over it, then add blush and I'm good for the whole day.
