Photoshop in a Tube: L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur.

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.

L’Oréal Paris Miracle Blur

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.

Hope this is not misleading because I really need a product like this and need it to work. I'd love everyone to look at me with a foggy lens so I look better to them, all the time. LOL.
I've read some celebrities are wearing this and I want to try it. I honestly expected a lower price point though. $25 at the drugstore is pretty steep.
I want to try this too! I think I will look at some other reviews on Make Up Alley . To get it for a better price look for a coupon and then stack it with an Ulta coupon like $3 off a $10 dollar purchase or 20% off one product. You can get those easily off of their site

All you have to do is try it once to see the softer (blurred) finish it gives. Even wearing it alone, skin looks softer and just better.

Like I said, this is not your normal drugstore product; it looks and feel like a prestige product through and through. Being that it is available at the drugstore, you are more apt to find it on sale, especially with the buy one get one 1/2 off specials they run at drugstores a lot.

Everyone that I know that has tried Miracle Blur loves it. I know you will too. Thanks for the great savings suggestions!
So, that's why my makeup didn't look right after this! I used it as a primer and my foundation did not wear as well as with a primer. I'm going to give it another try with primer on top. Thanks! I almost gave it away.
Sounds like an interesting product. Not the sort of thing I normally use, but worth a try if I see it on sale for sure. Thanks!
Would really love to try this! Glad to hear it works and includes SPF!
Does this have a fragrance? I know that if you watch sales you can probably find a better price or reward money back.
You are right Terry, I'm be more fan with Loreal brand cause my mate always use this and wow she have great result after using that product look more younger 3 years. haha maybe that's hear silly but I think this blur effect could decrease spot on the face of my girl.

I made that mistake the first time I used it too. You have to especially be careful not to apply your makeup immediately after putting on Miracle Blur because it sort of absorbs the makeup initially. Do try it again after it settles and after you put on your regular primer.

Definitely check it out at the drugstore and give it a try!
Krystle -

Yes! This little miracle tube works on so many levels.

There is no scent that I notice, which is a great thing. I hate overly scented face products and was worried until I opened the tube.
