Loreal Visible Lift Firming Foundation

I've recently been using this Loreal Visible Lift Firming Foundation to see how much I like it over my Revlon Colorstay. My Aunt gave it to me when she came home last year, and I only decided to use it now. I'm not a huge foundation user because it's just not good for my skin. The longer I use a foundation; I feel like my skin becomes dull, dry, and I start to break out. Well, I don't really have too much experience with foundation, and I'm only speaking from my experience with my Revlon Colorstay, and I have to say that I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation since I started using it, and I was hoping that my experience will be different with Loreal.

Loreal Visible Lift Firming Foundation Ingredients

This foundation has skin firming properties, helps to minimize fine lines, and has spf17, which is a good amount of sun protection. I love that it comes in a glass packaging with pump, which makes it easy to dispense the right amount of product per application. The consistency is slightly thick, but not as thick as the Colorstay. It has a mild foundation scent, easy to blend, buildable, and moisturizing. I only use my fingers to apply it, and it glides on my skin like butter. It doesn't cake up, and I just love that I don't need to work too much on my face routine with this foundation because the application is pretty easy. It doesn't dry fast so you can take your sweet time blending it on your face. I don't feel any stinging, no allergic reaction, and I didn't break out using this foundation for about two weeks now. I love how this foundation gives my skin a beautiful glow.

Below is a photo of me before and after applying this foundation. I'm fair with yellow and some slightly pink undertones, and Nude Beige suits me well. If you look at the photo below, this foundation does a great job at evening out my skin tone, but I can still see my skin peeking through. You can double it up as a concealer too. A little goes a long way with this foundation. The amount I have on the back of my hand above is what I needed to cover my face. I don't feel comfortable wearing a thick foundation, and this is just perfect. This stays on my face the whole day and it doesn't oxidize (yay!). 


I have oily skin, but this works on my skin well. I love that it gives a dewy effect making the skin look younger and firmer. I always set it with translucent loose powder to make sure that it doesn't move or melt on this hot weather. On camera my face appears super bright because of the flash, but this foundation looks great on natural light. I believe this is suitable for ages 25 up. I wouldn't recommend you to use it if you're younger when your skin doesn't need firming and visible lifting.

Wearing Loreal Visible Lift Firming Foundation in Nude Beige

This foundation is camera-friendly even with spf17. Above is a photo of me wearing this foundation. I was going to use this on my FOTD post but decided to add it here anyway so you all can see how it looks like after you apply the rest of your face makeup.

I believe this is already discontinued in the US (my Aunt got this in Canada) and is also not available locally, which is too bad because I think that many women would have liked this as well. I really like the foundation, and it's too bad I won't be able to repurchase this.

My verdict: 5 STARS!!! I love this foundation and prefer this over my Revlon Colorstay!
