The blur creams are catching on! I’ve read a lot of international bloggers rave about blur cream and I was wondering when it’ll hit mainstream here. And in the past few months, I believe more than 5 blur creams have made it to my ‘to review’ blogging desk. One of the products on the top of my list is the L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur which I’ve been eyeing since it came out earlier this year. I was so tempted to buy one, though still opted not to since I have tons more to try.
Talk about perfect timing. Just as I emptied my morning go-to moisturizer, I was invited to Watsons Triple Bonus Blogger Shopping Day a few months back. Surprise, surprise! First thing that went into my shopping basket was this L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur, of course. *wink!
Product Description:
L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur. L’Oreal Laboratories have fused powerful anti-ageing active ingredients with blurring polymers inside a moisturiser to reduce the appearance of lines, pores and wrinkles. This lightweight anti-ageing formula moisturises intensely. It has an instant blurring effect and fights the signs of ageing over time.
L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur is housed in a hefty red glass jar. The packaging looks high-end and, without a doubt, it really is beautifully chic considering that it is a drugstore brand. I love the packaging however, I don’t see myself bringing this to out-of-town trips no matter how much I like the actual product. The packaging is very bulky and heavy. I suggest buying one of those small containers from Muji and just transfer some of the product using a spatula.
This is truly a multifunctional product. Blur Cream: It contains Opti-Blur Technology which diffuses light on the skin to make it appear smoother and more radiant. Primer: It’s silicon-based with a soft texture that immediately fills in lines and pores, thus creating a smooth surface for makeup application. Although not as good in extending makeup staying power as the L’Oreal TrueMatch Blur Primer, it also gives the makeup a better canvass to latch on for slightly improved makeup staying power. Anti-Aging Moisturizer: Because it is enriched with Pro Retinol A, it helps fight signs of aging with continuous use.
From the jar, the L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur looks lumpy but it actually isn’t. It has a soft, mousse-like consistency that feels smooth and heavenly when applied. I don’t know how to emphasize just how soft it is – you just have to experience it to truly appreciate it. It’s like the L’Oreal TrueMatch Blur Primer but a tad silkier to the touch.
Although I often favor skincare products that are basically odorless, I like how the L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur has this very light, slightly floral scent. It’s not overwhelming to the senses and it fades in minutes.
Upon application, L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur immediately fills in the lines and crevices of the skin. It somehow acts like a filler, which in my opinion makes it a great candidate for a primer. I love how it makes the skin supple and silky to the touch. It basically creates a smooth and even canvass. And because of the hint of salmon tone to it, it also helps blur minor blemishes as it neutralizes dark marks. Know how salmon-toned concealers work best for neutralizing and concealing dark undereye circles? The same logic applies here.

L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur leaves a lovely semi-matte finish thus making it a good everyday primer for when I just have to run a few errands, not wanting to pile on much makeup. It makes my face look presentable with very minimal makeup on. I love how it makes my skin look even and radiant all the while giving me skincare benefits.

I’ve been using the L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur as my morning moisturizer for almost 3 months as of writing. Although I haven’t noticed any significant results when it comes to wrinkles and fine lines, I have high hopes that the immediate results would eventually become permanent. But even if it would takes months (even years) to happen, I don’t mind continuously using L’Oreal RevitaLift Magic Blur just because it delivers amazing, however short-term, results.
