**REVIEW** Garnier 5 Sec Blur

As I mentioned before, I love the box of goodies L'Oreal sent to me. L.O.V.E. it all. I did have some favorites though. This is one of them:


Garnier 5 Sec Blur. Genius.

I probably would not have tried this if not for the gift. Not only did I try it and like it, but I let my sister try it and she went out and got some for herself.

PROS:

  • Mattes the face after applying moisturizer and before applying the rest of my makeup. Mattes any shine without drying out the skin.
  • Could be worn alone if the shade were slightly darker. My sister can wear it without foundation. 
  • Has a really nice feel to it. Goes on like a spreadable powder. 
  • Blurs surface imperfections and evens out my skin tone for applying foundation or my shaded powder makeup.
  • Helps "set" my foundation. I noticed that my makeup wore better and longer if I used Blur.
CONS:
  • Because I have such a dark complection, I can't wear it solo. I have to apply foundation or my tinted powder to get rid of the slightly ashy look.
  • Though it does work as a "primer", it doesn't really do as much for my fine lines. I think this is only because of the pale shading. If it came in a brown tint, I think the blurring would work on fine lines.
This is really a great product. I'm hoping that someone will come out with it in a variety of shades for more skin tones. When I went with my sister to pick out hers at the store, I noticed that there were at least 4 other brands with a similar product. My sister is a few shades lighter than I am, and she is able to wear the Blur solo. Looks really good on her and saves her having to wear a foundation.

This is a really good product idea. Going on the search for one in a better shade for me.
