Wrinkles. Lines. Pores. L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur promises to get rid of the appearance of them all at once. So what IS this product exactly? It’s many things at once. First it has an SPF of 30, which we love about this product. Especially considering that it’s unlikely that any of us are using the sun protection we’re supposed to! But also the texture fills in your pores and lines, and then it contains ingredients that reflect light to make a blurring effect. So at the end of the day, this is a primer with sunscreen. The consistency is like a gel and cream hybrid, and of course it has a pleasant scent. Since Miracle Blur provides a matte finish, one tester with oily skin really liked it. It provides an extra layer to ensure your makeup doesn’t dissipate from the oils of your skin. It gives a general improvement in the appearance of your skin, so if you don’t like wearing makeup or if you’re going to the gym and want something more than a bare face, Miracle Blur is great to use. Since this is yet another step in skincare (Miracle Blur should be applied after moisturizer), it may be a turnoff for those who don’t want to spend more time getting ready or who don’t want too many layers of product on their skin. Our suggestion? Use it for days where you’re not wearing makeup or when you really need your makeup to be perfect and last all day.

Tip: Have a problem with your makeup settling into wrinkles? Don’t bother with powder as that exacerbates the problem. Instead, use a primer, then a liquid foundation, and a makeup setting spray.

When we saw the Jennifer Lopez ad for L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Gloss we had to try it! We tried the Blushing Berry shade and loved the feel of the gloss. It gives high shine but doesn’t feel tacky or greasy. It’s also great for your lips and contains hydrating Omega 3, vitamin E, and Argan oil. We wished that it was longer-lasting, but L’Oreal gives a generous amount in the tube so you have plenty to reapply.

L’Oreal Paris has a new line of shampoos, conditioners, and advanced treatments called EverPure. The EverPure line is free of harsh sulfates (a must for color-treated hair) and promises a rich lather. We tried the EverPure hydrate shampoo which is said to ‘inject strength after one wash’. Our hair seemed less prone to breakage but it also had way more volume! Our guess is that the rich lather took away all the product buildup but either way, we got a luxurious and thick hair as a result. We really recommend this if you really want moisture but don’t want your hair to be weighed down. If your hair is not fine, you may not appreciate the volume as much but you’ll love the really clean feeling. The scent of this shampoo is unique as well – it contains rosemary, juniper, and mint.

We were intrigued by the L’Oreal Paris USA Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup since it seemed to have more anti-aging focus than any other foundation in the drugstore. It contains an age-reversing serum with 5 ingredients that includes Pro-Retinol A and Vitamin C. It promises to ‘make skin smoother, firmer, brighter, even and flawless’. What we loved the most about this product is that it gave full coverage without settling into lines. However, we would not recommend this for anyone with sensitive or oily skin. The retinol can be an irritant for some people.

Attention women with sensitive skin! L’Oreal Paris has a new blush, True Match Naturale that is 100% preservative free, talc-free, and fragrance free. And since it’s a mineral makeup, it’s actually good for your skin. We really liked that it came with a nice and soft blush brush which saves room in your makeup bag. We did notice that their blush shades come off way lighter than they appear in the container. So you might want to go darker than you usually do. There is also a lot of shimmer in this blush so if you like a matte finish this blush might not be for you.
