Here we go with Part 2 of my review of L'Oreal Revitalift Magic Blur - the part where I apply it as I'm supposed to! Saturday week ago I posted Part 1, which was somewhat embarrassing because I didn't read the instructions and applied it over the top of my foundation, when in fact it's supposed to go underneath. Doh!
At the time I couldn't see how it would be effective once the light diffusing particles were smothered in make up, but hey...it is! Not quite as dramatically as when applied last, but pretty good all the same :-)
And being a firm believer that a picture tells a thousand words, lets get on with the photographic evidence...
So here is my forehead again, bare except for serum and moisturiser, with obvious frown and forehead lines and enlarged pores, especially in the area close to my brows...(which I hadn't drawn on yet)...
The pic below was taken immediately after applying the Magic Blur cream - except for the crease at the top that I didn't cover all that well, the other lines have softened considerably and the pores have been (thankfully) disguised...
After applying foundation, things are looking a whole lot better and interestingly, the effect of the cream hasn't diminished at all - just goes to show that you don't really know what will happen till you try :-)
And because I am forever the experimentalist, I thought I'd pat just a little bit more blur cream onto my trouble spots (after pencilling in my brows), and voila! My frown lines have become even less visible!
So what do you think ladies? I reckon this stuff is a WINNER! But I also reckon that the best results for an older gal like me are achieved by applying the product both underneath and over the top of foundation :-) However, as I prefer to use a tinted primer that contains a sunscreen, I'll be sticking to patting it on last. If you only want to hide fine lines and smooth out pores though, then you can't go wrong applying it alone or as the first step in your makeup routine. As for any long term effects, well we'll just have to wait and see, but I'll sure let you know if there are any improvements.
Take care of you,
