Would I Repurchase? L'Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur (Oil Free)

From my first experience with the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer I got the feeling that heavy - as in, high up on the ingredients list - silicone primers were not for me. I'm not alone in this as many YouTubers that I watch have complained about the same clogged pores and resulting breakouts that may occur. Still, #TeamModen is here to give you our personal experience so you can make better choices prior to shopping. So on with the show...

From the L'Oreal site: "Now in an oil-free, non-SPF formula, Miracle Blur Oil-Free is an Instant Skin Smoother that instantly erases the look of lines, wrinkles and pores. Its innovative lightweight texture is translucent to blend seamlessly into skin for a clean, silky-smooth finish.

What Is Miracle Blur?
It’s NOT a moisturizer, NOT a foundation, MORE than a primer; it’s the first of-its-kind Instant Skin Smoother. Now in an oil-free formula!

What Does It Do?
Miracle Blur Oil-Free instantly erases the look of lines, wrinkles, and pores.

When Should I Use It?
Apply after moisturizer and blend evenly into skin. Wear alone or under foundation. Use all over face, or squeeze a smaller amount for targeted application. Ideal for all skin types.

STEP 1: TREAT

The 1.18 fl. oz retails for $24.99USD on the site. Locally I've seen it going for just under $54BDS in Collins and just a tab bit more in Massy Stores.

I like how the product is packaged - in a nice plastic squeeze tube that's easy to travel with and doesn't take up a lot of space. The cap closes securely so you don't have to worry about leakage. The amount of product dispersed depends on how hard to squeeze the tube.

Like most silicone primers of this nature, this is a transparent gel like substance. It dries totally clear.

From the photo above I hope you can see how the product takes away the shine from the area and gives it a smooth appearance.

In my What's In A Primer Anyway? post the point I was trying to make is: if your skin gets along with silicone primers it's best to get the cheapest one since the main ingredients are the same. This applies specifically in this case since I don't know what L'Oreal was thinking pricing this so expensive. Blimmuh!

Regarding results: any moisturizer will "erase the look of lines, wrinkles..." so they get no free points for that. Say it with me people, moisturized skin automatically looks more youthful. Yes.
I saw no "pore filling" going on with this product.
What it most definitely is is an "instant skin smoother". No quarrels there at all.
Ideal for all skin times? Nope. Oily people stay away. I used this product specifically with a mattifying foundation and within a few hours I was looking like I was ready for the frying pan.

If you have mature or dry skin this type of thing might be for you; still I'd recommend using as thin a layer as possible.

What has been your experience with silicone primers?
