Recently I was sent a new product from L’Oreal called Revitalift Miracle Blur that claims to erase the look of:
- fine lines
- large pores
My friend, JJ and I agreed to test it out and compare results.
Deborah: When this product arrived in the mail I was intrigued. I loved the name- Miracle Blur – and the packaging was really attractive so I was pretty excited to try it. The only thing was I wasn’t really sure about was what it actually was?
JJ: I felt the same Deb. The packaging says its an “instant skin smoother finishing cream” with 30% sunscreen. I wasn’t sure what that meant. Was it a primer, a moisturizer, a sunscreen? Then I saw the words “erases the look of wrinkles, lines an pores” using “opti-blurr technology” and thought, I’ve got to try this.
Deborah: That sold me too. When I first tried it I squeezed out a little onto my fingertips and rubbed it all over my freshly washed face. It was sort of thick, and greasy and felt like Vaseline but quickly absorbed into my skin. Then I applied my foundation over top, put on my blush and the rest of my make-up and looked in the mirror. I looked really good! My skin was smooth and had a nice youthful glow to it. Only problem, I noticed the effect wore off as the day went on.
JJ: Yes, I was most curious about the part that it can help with large pores which is a problem I have around my nose area. I like to use a make-up brush to put on my foundation, so I squeezed a tiny bit of the Miracle Blur on the back of my hand, and dabbed my brush in it and applied it to my problem areas. At once I noticed that it filled in the small crevices nicely. Then when I put on my base over it, my complexion looked and felt so nice and smooth! (Tip: A little goes a long way, you don’t need to use much!)
Deborah: I’ve been using it regularly for over a week now and I like the results. I’d say it is very similar to a primer except that it also seems to make your skin look smoother and brighter, whereas most primers only seems to make your make-up go on smoother. It’s worth a try to see how it works for you.
JJ: Miracle Blur is multi-faceted because it doubles as a primer, filler and has sunscreen! It’s a unique product that lives up to it’s claims!
