L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift Review and Swatches

As part of the brand's new "Visible Lift" line, L'Oreal has released L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift ($12.95). While L'Oreal's Visible Lift products are ostensibly "age-reversing," you won't find any anti-aging ingredients here. Instead, this is simply a silky, lightweight blush infused with subtle shimmer to contour and illuminate your cheekbones.

L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift has a very interesting texture. It's a powder, but it feels very creamy and almost springy to the touch. In fact, the texture reminds me very much of L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadows, except without the fallout problems I encountered with those products.

L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift is quite a lovely shade. It's a rosy pink with subtle gold shimmer that will flatter a wide variety of people. I see some peachy undertones in this blush, though far less than you find in blushes such as NARS Blush in Orgasm. Additionally, I think the shimmer in this blush is more refined than the gold glimmer of NARS Orgasm. It's not obvious at all once applied.

However, L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift is not very pigmented. Unlike the strong pigmentation of the L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadows, this blush is decidedly sheer. That's fine if you don't mind building up layers (and it certainly prevents over-application errors), but I sometimes get tired of having to return to the pan over and over to get enough color.

The sheerness of this blush also affects its lasting power. Because it's so subtle, I noticed it fading away after 5-6 hours. Of course, that's not horrible wear time, but it could be better.

Honestly, all told I think that L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift is overpriced for what you get. I think you can find better blushes for a similar price at the drugstore. For example, I am far more impressed by Revlon PhotoReady Cream Blush in Flushed (though the comparison is slightly off because it's a cream blush and L'Oreal's is a powder). On the other hand, L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift might work well for you if you are looking for a sheer, subtle shade. 

What do you think of L'Oreal Visible Lift Colorful Lift Blush in Rose Gold Lift? Is it going on your wish list?

    1. I am so jealous of your access to Shoppers Drug Mart. That store sounds like it has everything!
