Obsessed | L’Oreal Visible Lift Serum Age-Reversing Makeup

By  |  0 Comments

You all know that I am always looking for that one product that will knock my socks off, blow my hair back and cook my noodle. Said makeup product should preferably prevent wrinkles, create luminous skin and look beautifully natural all at the same time. Basically an all-rounder that surpasses expectations.

Well, my friends, I am elated to tell you this product exists in the form of L’Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup (say that quickly). I absolutely love this foundation. I really do – I am already on my 6th bottle. What makes it so special, you ask?

packaging

First off, let me just say that I like the pump idea. You save more product and it’s a whole lot more sanitary. HOWEVER, and it’s a BIG however, the bottle pump is faulty. Out of 4 bottles that I have owned, 3 of them had bad pumps in that the pump decided to stop working about 1/8th of the way down (with quite a bit of foundation left at the bottom). With a price of R220 odd per bottle, that’s about R28 worth of foundation (and R84 if you count 3 bottles), and enough to last you about 10 more days. I ended up having to forcefully remove the tops to be able to use the remaining bit. There’s nothing worse than doing your face in the morning and then BAM! your bottle stops working and ceases giving you foundation. This seems to be a complaint worldwide, so I hope L’Oreal is on this. Also, this happened to me using the bottle with the light blue pump top. L’Oreal have since bought out a bottle with a royal blue pump top, so perhaps this is the revamped design. I will keep you updated.

This is the guy with the light blue pump

consistency

It is creamy and lightweight and provides a near-flawless medium coverage. It has a beautiful silkiness to it and is easy to blend.

application

I apply it using the Beauty Blender, and find that to be the most flawless application method. It  goes on smoothly and is a dream to apply and to blend.

finish

I love love love the finish! It just glides on and makes you look like you have great skin. The luminous, satiny finish it gives is just amazing. It also feels wonderful on my face – not heavy at all. My skin looks so healthy and radiant. Most foundations get cakey or obvious by the end of the day. Not this! It stays on and looks natural. I also have dry skin, and this doesn’t dry my skin out or go crazy oily. I do set it with a bit of Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup SPF10, only on my chin and nose.

This finish is perfection

All in all, I have fallen head over heels in love with this foundation. It really works for me. I don’t rely on this foundation solely for its anti-aging properties (it is a nice touch though). L’Oreal gets the anti-aging portion right, because this contains an in-part titanium dioxide sunscreen that provides reliable broad-spectrum protection. Sun protection is the pinnacle of anti-aging skin care, so L’Oreal is on the right track.

I will keep using this for as long as L’Oreal keep making it. It really is the perfect foundation!
