Revitalift Miracle Blur by L'OREAL is Like...



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!

  4. I got this! But then I returned it- it seemed a bit superfluous for me but it was fun to test out. Plus it was on sale and I had a zillion coupones so it only ended up costing like, $14 or something. :P

  5. Kelley how does this compare to the Salma Hayek Nuance smooth and firm protector?

  6. I TOTALLY FORGOT THAT PRODUCT EXISTED!! They are similar, although if memory serves correctly, the SHNS&F is a little creamier in texture? It's still slightly "fluffy and chunky" at the same time, but it's smoother coming out of the tube. They are very similar. I'm not 100% if the SPF's are the same. I think Miracle Blur has a higher SPF, but I bet you get more from Salma Hayek. Depending on sales and coupons, I bet the Salma is really close in price to the Miracle Blur.

  7. I really love this for my dry skin. It also lets me use less of my Skin79, which is always a good thing!

  8. Do you think it's a better product than a primer and sunscreen together? I like the idea of softening lines, do it really do a better job than a good primer?

    1. It totally depends on the type of primer you like. If you like something like Smashbox or BE's original silicone primer than yes. It saves a step and offers nice SPF protection. If you don't like silicone-feeling primers and prefer lotion-like primers, then it's not a good fit.

  9. I do like Smashbox type of primers, does it blur lines any better than a traditional silicone primer?

    1. Meh. That is hard. It depends. This one isn't clear, like Smashbox original and bM. So in that regard it will fuzz things out. But look at my half and half picture above. It's not a screaming difference. But the SPF is amazing.

  11. I picked this up a couple weeks ago and am loving it! It works very well for my normal to dry skin as a primer under foundation or just for non-foundation days it does help blur the lines a little bit (I'm 53 this May, the lines are happening).

  12. Any tips on how to stop this from pilling? I actually like the product, have no problem with cones, and it's great by itself but as soon as I try to put anything on top of it, it pills like crazy. And I mean anything; liquid base, BB cream, powder base, powder anything...blah, blah. It's driving me crazy because I really want to continue to use it as a primer and additional SPF.

    1. Hrmm. It doesn't pill on me, but I know what you are talking about. Is your skin hydrated when you apply it? Are you piling it on? Do you allow it to settle for a few seconds before putting on your foundation. My guess would be you are using too much at a time. I'm sorry it's pilling on you! I hope this solves it for you!

    2. Yes,, my skin is hydrated before I put it on. But I may be using too much so I will try reducing the amount and giving it a few minutes. Thanks for the feedback!

  13. Thanks for the review. I have very dry skin and if this works it may become part of my collection.

  14. I'm in the middle of writing a review of this product for my blog. Loved your review. The product reminds me of DHC's Velvet Skin Coat but with SPF, which is a good thing, in terms of the consistency and skin feel.

  15. I usually use mineral foundation..but, this being a primer and an SPF product does create some interest in me. Thanks for the review!
