Makeup Wars has decided to feature a favorite new product. I actually have three but I’m narrowing it down to just one very special one: Murad Invisblur Perfecting Shield. This primer is everything to me and I’m thrilled to use it daily and choose this as my special feature. Mine came from Beauty Brands* which is a wonderful website that I discovered when a blogger mentioned a sale they were having. I love sales and specials and I find that Beauty Brands always has something going on. They carry lines that are both established like MURAD and independent ones.
My blog partner Lisa is all about primers and I’m all about serums but I’d heard so many wonderful things about Murad Invisblur Perfecting Shield that I just couldn’t wait to use it. Once I got it I realized it’s much more than a primer. It’s a moisturizer, sunscreen, anti-aging treatment and blurring product wrapped up into one fabulous product.
The texture of Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30/PA+++ is what makes this unique for me. It’s gel like and feels soothing on my skin. I find I need the smallest amount of it to cover my entire face. I can use this over a serum or without one, I can use this under moisturizer or use it as my moisturizing product. It’s designed to promote total skin perfection. It’s even wonderful for those days we are running around without foundation because it provides so many benefits as well as protective ingredients (see below).
One of the reasons I didn’t use primers that much previously is that I found too many of them balled up when I’d put on BB/CC Cream or foundation. There’s never a problem with that with Murad Invisiblur. Plus it makes my foundation last so much longer. Since I’ve been using this (just under 1 month) I don’t have to touch up foundation ever. I can put on my makeup in the morning and other than touching up blush, lips or eyeliner I’m done.
Invisiblur is gluten free and non-comedogenic. For me one of the main benefits is that it helps blur the large pores on my face. I work hard to keep those to a minimum and Invisiblur works hard to make them look like they aren’t there. There’s never a greasy feeling plus I don’t have to wait for it to set before applying anything else. If you want a touch of luxury that takes the place of at least 3 products in your morning routine, then Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30/PA+++ is the answer to your dreams, just like it is to mine. — Marcia
