I really like this product, it does everything I expected it to. I have combination skin and no acne, so I mainly wanted a product that would minimize the look of my pores, smooth the look of my face, and add a matte finish, which this does. I only wear this product on my face (no foundation) with some powder to set it and I'm really happy with the look. However, if you're looking for more coverage I wouldn't recommend this product and I don't know how it interacts with foundation. This definitely isn't a miracle product though so don't expect it to fix major issues.
Other people have mentioned a sunscreen smell, but that hasn't bothered me. I do, however, wear sunscreen daily so I could be desensitized to the smell. The texture is very thick and kind of dry, so if that seems off-putting you may not like this. Also it is quite expensive for a drugstore product, but considering you only need a small amount per application it should last a while.
The only other primer I've used is Benefit's Porefessional and I feel that this product is superior to that one. The texture is thicker so it adds more of a smooth, matte finish than the Benefit primer.
I just bought the trial size at a reduced price and thought I would give it a try. I had tried the foil sample in Allure magazine and there really wasn't enough product to tell how it worked so i picked this up. It is a weird consistency,thick and kind of dry to spread but silcone like at the same time. It is a little confusing because the directions say to use as a last step but is that over or under makeup? I put on in my nose and cheek area and forehead as I have large pores in the nose and cheek area and a few fine lines on forehead. I definitely noticed a blurring effect but when i applied foundation over it the effect seemed to disappear because it rubbed in with my foundation. The next time I applied it but didn't use foundation in those areas and it looked good, I did apply a loose powder over it to set it because it does have a slight oily feel and i have oi;y skin. I am pretty happy with it and if you have dry skin it probably would last al day but being my skin is oily the correction only lasted until my skin started getting oily but that happens with any face product i use. I will purchase again but only with a sale price on it as I think it is fairly expensive for a Loreal product.
Does NOT do what it says!!!!!!!!! Covers wrinkles, i don't think so.
Revitalift Miracle Blur by LíOreal Paris claims to instantly blur lines, wrinkles and pores. According to LíOreal, Revitalift Miracle Blur is not a moisturizer. Itís not a primer. Itís not a foundation. Itís the first-of-its-kind, an instant smoothing Finishing Cream...
You can use Miracle Blur alone, without makeup for a matte finish, or under makeup for a smoother, more even application and wear of makeup. It retails for $24.99, which isnt cheap, however it is very cheap considering what some spend on these higher end creams.
My two biggest problem areas on my skin are:
very mild rosacea, which makes my skin look blotchy and red on my cheeks and chin;
and a couple large pores and dark spots- nothing too bad.
So, since Revitalife Miracle Blur claims to instantly ďblurĒ problem areas like wrinkles and pores, I thought it would be a good test on makeup-less skin. And the matte finish would help with the rosacea.
The box and packaging, to me, was misleading. It looks more like a sunscreen. Had I not been looking for it so I could give a review, I might have bypassed it on the beauty shelf. My first impression was that it wasÖ thick. Like, really thick. Itís thick almost like a dryer Vaseline, if that makes sense. I wasn't too sure I was going to like this, because thick creams remind me of greasy skin, and I certainly didn't want that. It took some work to smooth it on to my skin, but when I did, I noticed an instant matte finish that, yes, did smooth out my skin. Despite the thickness of the cream, it felt smooth and silky once it was worked into my skin. Huge plus.
The cream itself smellsÖ like sunscreen. But it has 30 SPF, and to be honest, I donít think I have ever used a product with SPF that doesnít smell like sunscreen. Small price to pay for sun protection, so it didnít bother me at all. I did like wearing this alone, without makeup (other than a bit of mascara). I LOVED that it has sunscreen built in so I didnt need two different products to use on my face.
All and all, LíOreal Revitalift Miracle Blur is a great product to add to your arsenal of face creams and products, but donít expect a real miracle- because if you do, you will be very let down.
Don't expect any "miracles". This is a primer with sunscreen. Thats it. I sort of like the idea of having sunscreen in a primer but the result is that the primer is a little greasy and that doesn't work with my slightly oily skin. I also don't know with the small results of this that I am applying if the sunscreen really is doing anything at all. I tried it under a bb cream and it looked thick and awful but I guess thats cause that was like doubling up on primer. If you don't intend to wear a bb cream and have normal to slightly dry skin this might work for you.
Not impressed with this product!! Feels heavy on the skin and makeup doesnt go on well on it!! It almost makes the skin look patchy with makeup on:/ and in its own the skin looks unhealthy and dull! Had high hopes for this product! but was disappointed after trying it out!! The only thing that is does as promised is it did make my expression line on the forehead appear less visible but most moisterizers and BB creams do the same for me! The packaging is normal but I don't like the smell..Happy I got it at a promotional price!!
Meh. Try and get a sample before you spend the money.
Luckily I was able to get a couple of sample packets at CVS instead of spending $25 on it untested. I looked up the reviews and noticed people either seem to love it or hate it. Put me in the "hated it"category.
If you read the instructions you are supposed to start with your regular face cream, then apply this stuff, then apply your makeup. I prefer a light, natural look. I used it sparingly (after reading the reviews) around my eyes to see what it would do. I wouldn't put it anywhere near my breakout areas. This stuff looked -and felt - like too much on my skin and did not diminish anything.
Tried it the next day on my neck just out of curiosity. "Blurred" a bit to begin with, but by a couple of hours later, the effect was gone and I felt like I had this greasy stuff on my chest. I didn't think even worked that well as a sunscreen.
This is a very nice product, if you use it right. It is VERY similar to L'Oreal 's Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base/ Primer. A thick, silicone like feeling. As weird as it sounds, when I used the Magic Perfecting Base, it felt sort of luxurious, but at the same time I had this thought in the back of my mid, that if I were to rub whale fat onto my face it would feel like this. It made me feel like I was being good to my skin, but at the same time, I am a devoted animal lover, so I did feel a bit uneasy everytime i wore this. I get the same sort of luxurious, whale fat textured feeling when I use this. I almost feel like the two products are the same formula, in a different packaging, but I dont mind because you get more product,and its much more sanitary to stick your dirty fingers in a pot everytime you do your makeup. One thing to keep in mind is that you should use less than you think you need. A little goes a long way and if you're not careful, and you use a touch too much, you will look and feel like a greasy monster for the rest of the day. Again, it's a great product if you know how to use it right.
This is such an unusual product. It comes out as a nearly transparent paste -- a less silky version of Benefit's Dr. Feelgood.
This also has a powerful sunscreen type of smell. The odor has faded a lot since application, but, if you hate the sunscreen smell, be forewarned.
I LOVE it. I had no idea my skin could look this good. I switched from Eucerin spf 30 to this. I wear it under my foundation and powder. I use about a dimes worth for my whole face and lightly pat it around my crows feet. My foundation lasts longer, I'm not nearly as oily as I was using Eucerin. My poors look way smaller and that is really saying something because they are really big. I started with the trial size tube and just bought the full size today. It's a bit pricey but I think it's worth it for a high spf primer that I can wear under makeup. It's pretty awseome.
