Self-Adjusting Beauty Products You Need to Try
Is there anything neater than beauty products that change color upon contact with your skin? We think not! They’re like your favorite childhood mood rings, just fit for adults…and for your skin! If you haven’t heard of self-adjusting beauty products before, you’re in for a true thrill. Some of these products can adapt and transform to fit the tones, needs, and pH of your specific skin. (Yes, really!) From color-changing lip conditioners to self-adjusting primers, we’re sharing a few of our favorite buys—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—that can personalize your beauty routine, ahead.
URBAN DECAY SELF-ADJUSTING COMPLEXION PRIMER
Urban Decay’s Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer may look white in the bottle, but don’t be fooled: this product offers more than what meets the eye. The high-tech, color-correcting formula features encapsulated pigments that adjust to your skin tone. So, what does that mean for your skin? You can help instantly blur the look of imperfections for a soft-focus effect, control excess shine, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and help make your makeup last all day. Not bad, not bad at all.

MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS GLOW BALM
It’s no secret that we at Skincare.com are huge fans of Maybelline’s Baby Lips collection. The lip conditioners are not only hydrating, but also boast uber-flattering tints in adorable—not to mention super portable—packaging. One formula from the line, however—namely the Baby Lips Glow Balm—has caught our attention for one very unique benefit: the formula can adapt to your personal lip chemistry thanks to hydrating pH pigments. The result? A personalized pink glow that you’ll adore! Smooth on as you would a regular lip conditioner, and watch as the formula adjusts to a unique shade of pink.

L’OREAL PARIS MAGIC SKIN BEAUTIFIER BB CREAM ANTI-REDNESS
Rubbing a green-tinted cream into your skin might not sound like the best idea, but trust us when we tell you that it is if you’re trying to mask the look of redness. Think back to basic color theory taught in elementary school. Green lies on the opposite side of the spectrum from red, so applying a green-tinted formula can help cancel out or reduce the appearance of redness on your complexion. That’s exactly what L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Anti-Redness can help do! The color-correcting formula glides on with an unmistakably green tint but quickly transforms to a universal shade to reduce the appearance of red-hued imperfections.
L’OREAL PARIS MAGIC SKIN BEAUTIFIER BB CREAM ANTI-FATIGUE
Thanks to color-transforming pigments, L’Oreal Paris’ Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Anti-Fatigue applies in a pinkish-red hue but immediately adjusts to a universal shade to temporarily reduce the appearance of tired-looking skin. In addition, the formula can revive the complexion, even out the look of the skin’s tone, and hydrate the complexion for a “bare skin” appeal. Use it as you would your regular BB Cream to correct, hydrate, and even your skin’s tone.
IT COSMETICS JE NE SAIS QUOI LIP TREATMENT
IT Cosmetics’ millennial-pink Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment provides intense hydration to the lips and awakens them with a perfect flush of pink. Formulated with Vitality Lip Flush Technology, this lip conditioner works with the warmth of your lips to create a beautiful flush of rose. Plus, we can’t get enough of its luxurious packaging!

IT COSMETICS VITALITY LIP FLUSH 4-IN-1 REVIVER LIPSTICK STAIN
This twist-up lipstick may look similar to IT Cosmetics’ Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment on the outside, but it actually acts as a lip balm, lip gloss, lip stain, and lipstick all in one! Available in six shades—one of which is color-adjusting like Je Ne Sais Quoi— these multi-tasking lip formulas offer a long-lasting flush of natural-looking color.
