Product Review – L’Oréal Miracle Blur

I have to say, I went into trying this skeptical. I saw the commercial and thought “that’s ridiculous. Nothing that blurs your pores and whatnot is going to feel good.” And do you know what? I was right.

My mother bought a tube of this just to try it, and she wasn’t too impressed. So, I gave it a try. I showered, washed my face as usual, and then applied this when I was done. The feeling is absolutely peculiar; it feels both chalky and greasy at the same time. I figured I’d let it absorb for a couple of hours and then do my makeup before going to work. Well, a few hours passed and the product still hadn’t absorbed into my skin. I applied my foundation and makeup as usual, and it all smudged off like I’d run a marathon just before doing it.

Don’t get me wrong, it actually did blur imperfections. I have many red marks and scars on my face, a couple of wrinkles here and there, and some rather large pores in places. The product did blur or get rid of them completely, but I couldn’t get over the heavy, greasy feeling. I wound up grabbing a napkin and rubbing off all my makeup during my shift because it felt so gross.

 

Overall, it worked like they promised (the exclusion being that you can’t feel it). My skin did look brighter and smoother after I applied it, but I could get the same effect from concealer and two coats of foundation, with a much lighter and cleaner feeling. My opinion: don’t waste your money on this product unless you can handle the weight, grease and chalk on your skin. It didn’t clog my pores; my skin looked no worse the next day, so that wasn’t a problem.

 

2.5/5 for me.
