When I first began wearing makeup, I was probably a lot older than most and really didn’t think choosing cosmetics like foundation and concealers a challenge. I’ve been through lots of products that were not the perfect match for me so at one point I stopped trying. I’ve always aimed for the more natural looks and some cosmetics just didn’t give me that.
Since I haven’t worn makeup for years, I want a more natural look but at the same time something that helps smooth out the patchy areas while also minimizing fine lines. Yes I do have those.
So when I was asked to try out L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation I figured why not. Let’s give it one more try! This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/L’Oréal.
L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation is L’Oréal Paris’ first makeup with exclusive blur technology formulated to instantly blur lines and wrinkles. Signs of aging disappear as Visible Lift Blur Foundation hides dark spots, large pores and smooths uneven texture so you get a flawless finish you can see and feel.
L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation contains SPF 18 and is available in 12 shades. It retails for approximately $14.99 for 1.4 fl oz. and is available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide starting July 2014.
The first thing I noticed was the texture of the foundation. It appeared very light and creamy but the real test was just how smoothly it would go on.
I was anxious to see just how well the foundation would cover some of my problem areas. I don’t have any major skin issues but I do have some uneven skin tones that I was hoping it would even out without have to applied huge amounts of foundation. Remember-I do like a more natural look.
I thought the foundation did a very good job of giving me more coverage and toning out the dark spots. It spread on pretty smoothly, is very lightweight and gave a nice matte finish to my skin. I did however notice it did not completely cover all of the daeks spots. I was a bit hesitant to add more because I really do not want a caked on look and I thought I applied an ample amount already. But again, it could all come down to me not putting enough or simply not having the right shade. Next time, I think I’ll go one shade darker and that should make a difference.
I will say this however; I really did like the overall coverage L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Foundation gave me with the amount I used. I could have probably used a bit more foundation to get better coverage but as I mentioned before less is more for me. I am not going to dismiss the product just yet and will give it another try on a date night I have planned. Maybe I’ll add a bit more since it will be a night event since I tried it during the day when I usually go lighter or no make at all.
