Pricey vs Priceline: Blurring Creams

by Madeleine Borgersen

Blurring creams are another relatively new product to the makeup scene. They aim to minimise pores and offer a flat, even slate for you to apply your makeup.

Pricey vs Priceline: Blurring Creams

They’re ususally thicker creams that literally fill your pores to smooth out and reduce the signs of pores, wrinkles and imperfections.

Pricey: Benefit Porefessional – $53

I’ve loved this product ever since it was tested on my hand in a Myer store. It’s super easy to apply and works all day. I like to use this if I know I’m going to be wearing a full face of makeup all day. It prevents me from breaking out, I think as it fills the pores first so makeup sits on top?

Priceline: L’Oreal Magic Blur – $19

When I first went to use this one I noticed a really similar product, consistency was very similar as was the colour. I did find it harder to apply than Benefit’s however it didn’t want to spread as far and so I ended up using more product to cover my face.

The Verdict:

The L’Oreal and Benefit had the same smoothing and blurring results for me and both lasted extremely well. The L’Oreal was harder to apply and did use up more product however. I honestly think price wise you would come out even in terms of the quantity of product you use on a daily basis. I personally will stick to my Benefit as it’s one less thing I need to buy regularly and it works a charm.

If you’re new to blurring creams however and larger pores are an issue for you I’d definitely recommend giving the L’Oreal a whirl to see what a difference it can make and then, if you decide to make it a part of your daily routine head on in to Benefit!

Do you use a blurring cream? If so which is your pick?
