L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Swatches

Bird, bird, bird is the word. Actually BB Cream is the word. BB Creams are taking the drugstore market by storm this Summer and more and more brands continue to introduce their take on a BB Cream that’s almost always so very different from what I have seen and enjoyed from Asia.

But facts is facts some of these formulas are rocking tinted moisturizers at best so props for that.

The next brand to take on BB Cream is L’Oreal Youth Code with a BB Cream Illuminator.

Here’s a really sneak peek as I’m busy testing it out for the past few days and will review it in full shortly!

L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream comes in two shades, light and medium, and is available for $16.99-$17.99 at drugstores now. I located mine at Walgreens but and also saw it online at Drugstore.com

It has a disappointing SPF 15 and promises a range of functions such as providing moisture, evening out skin tone, correcting, and illuminating.

I choose light which you can see in my swatch below.

I won’t give anything away about the formula, you’ll have to wait for my review, but I will say, it isn’t a BB Cream! Ugh!

Oh well! Back to the drawing board.

Review upcoming this week but feel free to share your thoughts if you already tried it.

I love hearing your little mini reviews in the comment box!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Ah, yet another “I’m really a tinted moisturizer but since all the other kids are doing it, they slapped the two B’s onto me!” product 🙁

    (P.S. on a semi related note, my friend in Canada asked if I wanted anything and the first thing I asked for was the Marcelle BB cream! I’ve heard that that’s actually a good one! Have you tried/are you plan on trying that one?)
