Loreal Visible Lift Repair Absolute Rapid Age Reversing Makeup Review!

Hi My Loves!!!

I have another first impressions/application video for you today with a new foundation I've been wanting to try :)

Here is a full review with pictures and swatches.

Onto the foundation review:

Nice packaging. Very light, made out of plastic but still looks snazzy and expensive. Reminds me f the Maybelline Dream Smooth mousse's packaging but a more expensive looking version. Easy to throw in your purse or makeup bag and go without makeup a massive mess or being afraid it will break. Comes with a sponge (I don't use them)....

I would say it's a medium to full coverage. If you use a sponge or beauty blender I think you would get medium but with the Sigma F88 I got full coverage. It covered all of my pigmentation, as well as my un-eveness and acne scarring.

Definitely more on the dewy side as far as finish goes. I would say luminous/glowy/dewy. You can feel it on your skin. It feels like your wearing a semi oily feeling serum.

It's harder than I was expecting. When you stick your brush in, it continues to stay firm and hard but it goes on the brush and your face very creamy. A bit oily and slippery.

Blends super easily, glides on like butter. A little tough to put on without making brush marks on your face and I did find that if I touched a place on my face with my finger it would smear the makeup right off. Also when I was applying my concealer I had a hard time as it was slipping off of the foundation underneath causing my pink skin to peak through. So you have to swipe it on and then kind of pat it afterwards with your brush so you have no wonky marks.

Wrinkle Friendliness:
This is probably one of the best for wrinkles. My forehead wrinkles were barely noticeable as well as the smile lines. My under eyes did crease but I did use a different concealer and I think that was what was creasing. This is a wrinkle friendly foundation for sure.

Lasting Power: 
Not very impressive. I would say 4-6 hours of looking nice. After that it goes downhill. I didn't powder though, so maybe with a powder you could get an extra few hours with it staying fresh looking. It got pretty oily in my T zone towards the end of the day. It does transfer onto anything that touches it, so that was a tad annoying for me. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who wants all day wear.

I think there were a good variety of shades. I'm not sure how many all together. I got the 121 Light Ivory which I found to be a perfect match. It has a slight yellow undertone. It was the 2nd to lightest. The lightest one had a pink undertone, which I don't care for on my skin. I was impressed with the color although as it got later in the day I felt like it got lighter??? Maybe it's just me haha!

Photo Friendly:
I took a picture with flash at night indoors and it was ok. I wouldn't recommend this for a special photo obsessed occasion.

Easy to Remove?
I just used my Jojoba oil and a washcloth and it came right off. 

SPF: 16

It just smells like foundation to me. A bit chemically.

$13.97 at Walmart

Who's it best for?
I would recommend this foundation to normal, normal to dry, dry and extra dry. If you are oily you will be a butter face within an hour. I wouldn't even bother with this if you have any kind of oilyness at all unless you want to really whip out the powder or blotting sheets. Anyone who has wrinkles or fine lines will like this. If you only wear foundation for a couple hours at a time then this would be perfect, but if you want it to last a long time.... might not be for you.

Would I repurchase? 
No. It doesn't have the lasting power that I like.

Thanks for reading!
