Lately, I’ve been seeing the commercials for the new L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur all over the place. So, when I friend of mine said she had a sample she could send me, I was all “Sure, let me see what this is all about”. And when I got it, tested it on my hand, I was all, “Wait, where have I seen this before?”. Then it came to me. This was just like my beloved Avon Magix Face Perfector that I told you guys about 2 1/2 years ago!
Both products claim to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles (*L’Oreal claims to “erase” them). Both products leave a soft, matte finish. Both can be used alone or under foundation. Both have sunscreen – Avon has 20SPF and L’Oreal has 30SPF). Both claim to hold back shine all day (*Avon claims 10 hours).
As you can see, both of them give me the same smoothing effect to the lines on my hand. The main difference I can see is the L’Oreal is a bit yellower in color and a smidge thicker than the Avon, but I do find I sometimes need to massage the Avon bottle to “mix” it before I use it. I haven’t had the L’Oreal long enough to know if that will be necessary going forward with it.
All in all, I don’t know that I would call the L’Oreal Miracle Blur a “first-of-its-kind” product since I have been telling you about a similar product for 2 1/2 years, but if you are referring to the description on the bottle of “Instant Skin Smoother”, then I suppose it is technically.
You can find the L’Oreal Miracle Blur at mass market & drugstores now for around $24.99USD for 1.18 fl oz (35 ml). You can get the Avon Magix from your local Avon representative or online for around $10 for 1 fl oz (30 ml), but they regularly have sales. (Also, you can look online at the 17 shade liquid foundation Magix line, too).
*Disclaimer: The L’Oreal Miracle Blur was sent to me by a friend, and as mentioned in the prior post, I purchased my Avon Magix for myself.
