Skin perfectors have been around for a bit, but L'OREAL RevitaLift Miracle Blur is the first one at a mass market price, for less than $25! You can use this so many ways you'll want to keep it on hand for everything.
L'OREAL RevitaLift Miracle Blur is a little wonder that multitasks as a primer, SPF and face finisher. It has the ability to prime your skin for perfect makeup and smooth out or blur those fine lines, all while protecting you from sun damage. It's less than the price of similar competitors and a great find. If you don't like the feel of silicones on your skin, then skip it. If you are cool with the 'cones, then keep reading.
First things first, it feels "slippery" because of the silicones, but it's not a moisturizer. Think of it as a way to seal in your skincare, more of a super primer. So use it as a primer before your makeup. It will give you an even canvas to work with and your makeup will last longer. BONUS! It's got an SPF of 30 which is wonderful for everyone as a daily SPF.
You can wear it on its own as an SPF, and you'll get a slight diffused look on your skin for those days you don't want to wear makeup. It doesn't quite give you the effect that is shown in the ads, but does anything? There is a slight diffusion of redness and eye lines are slightly diminished, but there isn't much of a difference.
Depending on your foundation (this works better with liquid than mineral) you can add a bit on top of your foundation to blur really tricky spots - like dry patches, under eye circles or forehead lines. It's a little easy to overdo, so try applying it with a stippling brush so you don't overdo it.
If you liked Anthelios Sunscreen & Primer (one of my favorites!) then this is basically a dupe. If you've never tried a product like this, be prepared. It's not a solid and it's not a cream. It's also not a gel. It's a weird, smooth little hybrid that I can only probably describe as "fluffy earwax from a faerie". It's really different. If you have a better way to describe it, then tell me in the comments!
In the meantime, scour for coupons (don't forget your Extra Bucks from the CVS/Pharmacy Beauty Club) and check it out. Again, if you have oily skin and don't like the feel of something with a lot of "slip" on your skin, you may not like this. If you have normal to dry skin and don't mind the feeling of silicones, I think you'll like it!
