I’ve become a bit of a concealer junkie over the last few months as I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect concealer combination. I take my concealer far too seriously but in my mind I need one specifically for highlighting under my eyes, one for correcting, one for blemishes and two for cream contouring. The everyday girl really only needs one single concealer that can cover all the bases but I have a concealer addiction and it won’t be stopping anytime soon. However, I have discovered a concealer that ticks all the boxes and a matching blush that I just can’t wait to tell you about!
L’oreal’s Visible Lift range is intended to help the skin look plump, fresh and youthful meaning no lines, wrinkles or enlarged pores. It is targeted towards older complexions but I’ve found it’s quite nice on my dry/combination skin. L’oreal has recently expanded their original Visible Lift line to include a new range of Visible Lift Blur products including a foundation, concealer and blush.
The Visible Lift Blur products feature Opti-Blur Technology that helps to blur the look of pores and imperfections by diffusing light off of pigments in the product. They come in simple squeeze tubes with gold accents that look super chic and sophisticated while also being incredibly user friendly. I really love this sort of packaging because it is much more hygienic than the typical tube and wand and it prevents the transfer of bacteria.
The Visible Lift Blur Concealer*($15.99) is a gorgeous little product that I use every single day, it has a really lovely consistency that is somewhere between a cream and a gel. It is a bit on the thinner side but provides good medium coverage that can be easily built up to full. The tiniest bit goes a really long way because it blends out like an absolute dream so you can cover a lot of surface area with hardly any product. It is super creamy and moisturizing so it is perfect for applying on drier areas of your face like spots and blemishes but it also somehow manages to not be too creamy so that it creases. The Opti-Blur technology magically makes it glide over the skin and melt into place without creasing or settling into lines. When it sets it leaves a naturally airbrushed finished that makes your skin look perfected, smoothed and brightened. It feels velvety to the touch and stays put for 8 hours when set with powder. It comes in 3 shades, all of which are quite light and have a yellow undertone. The shade light is a perfect match for covering up my redness and blemishes and works really well as a daily undereye concealer. However, on days when I prefer a more intense highlighted look, it is a bit too dark. If there was a lighter shade it would be my dream undereye concealer.
The Visible Lift Blur Blush*($15.99) is another lovely product that I have become a bit obsessed with. It is an intensely pigmented mousse-like blush with a silicone based formula and a super creamy texture. As with the concealer, a little bit goes a long way so I prefer to apply it to the back of my hand, spread it out and then apply with a stippling brush. This helps to diffuse the intensity so when it hits the cheeks it becomes a gorgeous, glowy flush of colour that looks airbrushed and smooth. It has a bit of slip to it so I like to set it with a translucent powder and once I do it doesn’t move or migrate. It comes in three shades, 501 Soft Peach (the one I have), 502 Soft Pink and 503 Soft Berry, all three shades have a tiny bit of shimmer but it is very subtle and just adds a healthy glow. I really love the effect this blush gives and I want to try the other two shades but I have heard they are slightly different in texture so we will have to see!
Both the concealer and the blush from the Visible Lift Blur line have becomes staples in my collection. They really do help with the appearance of pores and spots and the coverage is fantastic. If you are like me and love that airbrushed, smoothed and flawless face then give these two products a try!
