Getting Cheeky With The Latest Drugstore Makeup Must Haves
L’Oreal is one of my favorite drugstore brands and they continually hit it out of the ballpark with new products – and their latest blush is no different. Let me introduce you to Visible Lift Blur Blush.
This blush is the latest addition to the popular L’Oreal Visible Lift line – which means that it is an anti-aging blush. Can we all just do a dance of joy already?
L’Oreal’s Visible Lift Blur Blush ($12.99) contains opti-blur technology, which means it’s designed to hide imperfections and make your pores take a vanishing act, all while providing a sheer wash of color and a youthful glow.
You read that right: not only is it anti-aging, it makes you look like poreless perfection. Sign me up!
These blushes are available in three universally flattering shades:
501 Soft Peach – the palest, softest shimmering peach
502 Soft Pink – a delicate pink shimmer
503 Soft Berry – fuchsia pink
These blushes are housed in simple squeeze tubes and the blush is a cream/gel hybrid that blends and sheers out as much or as little as you need to. If you’re a cream blush newbie and worried about looking like a clown, this blush is for you – it is FOOLPROOF.
Start with the teensiest amount of product and build up to the intensity you want. If you accidentally apply too much, you can gently blend away the excess with a tissue because this stays pliable and doesn’t really set until the sheerest amount of color is deposited.
I’m in love with Soft Pink – it is the most flattering, girly pink ever. It looks amazing against my pale skin and I am especially in love with the low price tag. The only way L’Oreal could bring me more joy right now is if they offered this blush in a sheer, shimmering bronze or plum. (Hey, L’Oreal – that was a hint.)

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. Krista has been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and still hasn’t vanished. She is super proud of that.
