Browse through your favorite magazine and look at one of the celebrities or models in it. You know how lines and wrinkles are blurred and an overall look is softened? Well, that is done with digital retouching. It's no secret. Wouldn't you love to be to walk around and look like your were professionally retouched? I know I do. And I have found something that does just that. It's one of L’Oréal Paris' latest launches and it is called Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream. It's like Photoshop in a Tube.
Miracle Blur utilizes new Opti-Blur Technology to diffuse light in millions of directions to instantly erase the look of lines, wrinkles and pores. It feels like a thick primer and it is formulated with Silica, so it also absorbs and disperses skin’s natural oils so skin looks matte, with a soft blurred finish.
Now, this is not particularly primer. It is called a Finishing Cream and it is meant to be used as the last step in skin care. After testing Miracle Blur and feeling the primer-like feel, I put it on my makeup vanity. I was wrong. It needs a few minutes to settle into skin and stop feeling tacky, so it's now in my bathroom where I keep and do my skin care routine. It is my final step after my moisturizer every morning.
I have a difficult time with daytime moisturizers and sunscreen, so I love that Miracle Blur also contains an SPF of 30. It's great not to need to use an additional sunscreen anymore as this takes care of two things (well, really a lot of things) at once.
Though Miracle Blur fills in my lines and wrinkles and gives my skin a soft feel, I don't notice it making my makeup last any longer. I still use primer immediately before I put on my makeup. I guess that is why it is not called a primer and it emphasised being a skin care product.
L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream sells for $24.99 and is available at drugstores and mass retailers now. Don't let the higher mass product price turn you off. It is worth this price and then some. It its honestly a product I would expect to pay $50+ for at the department store.
