We live in a Photoshopped world. Someone showed me a while ago that there’s a Photoshop app for your phone. You’ve got to be kidding me. Between all the filters and blurring of lines and people snapping photos of every single second of every single day, the pressure to be camera ready at any given moment is kind of insane. I get that if you’re on the red carpet, but if you’re just making your way to work or out for dinner with your friends, you shouldn’t have to apply The Full Face of Makeup to, you know, just live your life.
Ever have someone snap of a photo of you and instantly wish for Barbra Streisand-like soft focus with an almost-candlelight glow? Gals, no need to call the lighting crew or even download Photoshop on your phone. I have the solution and it is this 30-second miracle of a product.
I’ve used this in photos lately and I’ve been floored by the results. It’s an instant skin smoother than you simply smooth over your skin and it literally blurs lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and evens your complexion. I am not even remotely kidding. I haven’t used foundation or tinted moisturizer all summer. I apply this over my moisturizer, I add a touch of luminosity under my eyes, throw on mascara and lipstick and I CALL IT A DAY. I cannot say enough about it. A company was able to capture soft lighting in a bottle, and that company is L’Oreal Paris.
Oh, and it has SPF 30 already packed in. I KNOW. It’s also dermatologist tested, safe for sensitive skin AND fragrance free.
It comes in oil-free and regular formulas, and it’s kind of The Most Genius Beauty Item In A Long Time. Just try it for a week and see what I mean. Soft lighting and instantly even skin in real life? Absolutely. It’s the BEST.
