Despite the poor reviews I’m really loving L’Oreal’s Revitalift Magic Blur. I received a free sample sachet and loved it so much I went out an bought a whole tube. Now if you were thinking of running out and buying a tube, I’d say stop and give it a test run first. If I’m honest I do think this product is better suited to a mature skin as it’s primary objective is to smooth out fines lines, enlarged pores and imperfections.While I’ve come to grips with the pore situation, Magic Blur masks imperfections (including them nasty pores) by diffusing the light that bounces on my skin. The thick cream creates a beautiful canvas for foundation application (FYI it pairs beautifully with my Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet) and feels so silky soft. It dries matte and while it contains silicones it doesn’t feel slippy on my combination-oily skin. It also prolongs the longevity of my foundation.
One things I will say is to try to avoid using too much product as it becomes counter productive. Trust me when I say a little goes a long way. The cream doesn’t have a discernible scent and while it’s not too dissimilar to my Garnier 5 sec perfect blur (which I reviewed some months ago), I’m going to say I prefer this more.
What are your thoughts on finishing creams? If you’ve tried them have they met your expectations? Let me know in the comments below.
