Not worth your money.

Pros

  • Matte Finish

Cons

  • Dry
  • Poor Coverage

Best Uses

  • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin

Comments about L'Oréal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation:

This product is very dry and shows every imperfection on your face. If you have dry skin, do not get this. I have combination skin and on my dry spots it just makes them look horrible.

    Comments about L'Oréal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation:

    This is the absolute best foundation ever! After many years of purchasing expensive department store cosmetics, I found this and I'm so pleased. The coverage is great, finish is natural, stays on all day. I've been using for over a year and have purchased 3 bottles. I've experienced some of the same problems with the nozzle but honestly, I love the foundation so much, I use a cotton swab to get every last drop.

      By badmamjam

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about L'Oréal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation:

      PROS: Good in my big pores and wrinkles compared to other ones I've tried (35 in total). Inexpensive compared to high-end. Lasts very well on me. I would call it between a demi matte and satin finish, but it's not drying on my combo skin and it doesn't highlight dry flakes at all, like most mattes and even most satins do on me. It's just like my skin; that's what I would call the "finish." Comes in a pump so you won't contaminate it it with fingers. Doesn't get "dewy" later like even MAC Pro Longwear and MUFE HD will on me. Has pink and yellow and even some beige tones for neutrals like me. SPF17. Buildable. CONS: You can't take too long to apply it because it dries a little fast. Probably not for those who like a dewy or super-matte finish. I don't believe in any "lifting" claims, but that's not why I bought it, anyway. I just wish cosmetic companies would realize we can get our anti-aging products in our skin care choices. (I have to combine two colors to get my exact tone.) You may have to combine two colors to get your best match. The concealer version of this is also great for wrinkles.

      APPLICATION TIPS: I use Monistat chafing gel (or L'oreal's magic perfecting primer for a slightly more matte finish) tapped into my pores/wrinkles beforehand, letting it set a few minutes before applying the foundation. (Those two help a lot with my pores and helps the foundation to last longer ). I also like to put just a drop of grapeseed oil (it's a very light oil) mixed into my foundation before applying. (It's a crazy sounding idea, but it truly creates a magical finish that doesn't look greasy. I got the tip from makeup artist Wayne Goss on youtube. But do know that I'm combination/dry. It probably would not be good for someone who is oily or wants a matte finish.) I use a soft blending brush, like Sonia Kashuk's core synthetic blending brush, to apply and blend. I sometimes top off with a light spritz of MAC's fix plus to make it last even longer.

      The concealer version of this is buildable and great for wrinkles.

      this is great foundation, at 63 i look much younger and i credit this product. it hides discolorations, etc and does a good job smoothing and looking natural...now to LOREAL - please do something about the pump...each one i buy seems to work poorer and poorer. i am soaking 3 bottles now in hot water, but don't know if it will help. does the product dry out? is there a pump malfunction? designers, please fix asap....i don't want to go ahead and buy another product, but....how long?

        Comments about L'Oréal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation:

        This product is such a good value in so many ways. First, it has high quality ingredients you would find in others that cost more. Second, it offers something everyone should think about, sunscreen.Third, the pigment of the makeup doesn't make you appear yellow or orange in tone.I have personally been using L'oreal's foundation for 20+ years now and wouldn't change.

          Comments about L'Oréal Visible Lift Serum Absolute Foundation:

          I have been wearing a well know brand name mineral powder makeup for many, many years. I've "put up" with the mess because I thought I liked the way it looked until recently. I noticed it was making my skin look older,dryer, etc. So I looked around and found Visable Lift and I couldn't be happier. My skin looks flawless and beautiful. I don't see any pores or even the fine lines. It's truly amazing. I haven't experienced any pump problems so far but if I do I will do what others have suggested and open the bottle. Wish I had switched sooner.
