L’Oreal RevitaLift® Miracle Blur


BB creams, CC creams and Miracle Blur oh my! We live at a time when the current “hot items” are products geared toward reversing or at least masking all of the damage most of us did to our skin growing up. This being through a lack of sunscreen (guilty!), a poor skincare routine or just a lack of knowledge for how to treat our skin as a whole.

Recently House Party selected me as to host a Redbook/L’oreal party and one of the products they sent was L’Oreal RevitaLift® Miracle Blur (retail $24.99). If you’re like me you’re probably sitting there wondering what IS it? Miracle Blur is not a moisturizer or foundation. It’s more than a primer in that it’s intendedto be a an Instant Skin Smoother. A little confusing I must admit as that is what I thought BB creams are so I was anxious to see if there was any noticeable difference.

The instructions say that it should be applied after moisturizing as the final step in your skincare routine. It can be worn alone for a matte finish or under makeup for a more flawless appearance. The ladies and I decided to try it the former way first to see if we noticed any changes without the aid of other products. Overall most of did feel as though our skin showed minor improvements but it wasn’t as dramatic as I had hoped for based on the product description. Once my foundation/powder was applied the two seemed to work fairly well as a team! My cheeks had a bit of a glow/sheen to them that was really flattering especially in photos.

The only con I noticed came when it was time for my nightly skincare routine. I proceeded to wash my face like normal with a sudsy wash but found that as soon as I made contact with my face the suds went away! I was unable to actually wash the product off – even with face wash designed to remove makeup. I wound up having to use a wet towellette makeup remover and that removed it fairly well. This might be great for someone who is looking for a “waterproof” type makeup but my skin is fairly sensitive and prone to clogged pores so I don’t think having what seems like an oil based makeup product is the best for me.

It sure was a pleasure trying it, though!
