The texture is a light cream and I didn’t detect any scent to it. A little goes a very long way and I used it as advised on the box; it’s supposed to be the last step in my regime so I lightly tap it on top of makeup and a little goes a very long way.
*note: The pictures below are NOT touched in any way, not even the lighting is adjusted, they are straight from the camera and taken with natural light.
The effect is very subtle but it really blurs out the fine lines, pores and mattifies the skin. I think the best description I can give is; Nanoblur is photoshop in tube form. On my AFTER picture, I dabbed a grain size (seriously that little!) all over my forehead, under my eyes, my cheeks and you can see how my skin looks blurred out.
I’m not sure if Indeed Labs has changed the formula of Nanoblur because I’ve previously read that you are supposed to use it under foundation while this new packaging specifically said it’s not a primer and to use on top of makeup. I also know many struggled to find the right method of application but it was very straight forward for me. I’ve used it on top of Bourjois Healthy Mix serum, IT Cosmetics CC cream, Chanel Vitalumière Aqua and Hada Labo Air BB cream and it worked beautifully.
*EDIT: Nanoblur can be patted on over the top of liquid makeup, underneath powder makeup or for those wanting a dewier look can mix Nanoblur with their favourite moisturizer.
I’m in love, I’m truly in love with NanoBlur* which is so freaking strange because the bitch in me is always ready to blast a gimmicky product out of space and this does come across as gimmicky. But how could I ever hate anything that instantly takes at least 5 years off my face?
So if you see me prancing around like a lovelorn foolish teenager then you know it’s because I’ve gained a new found confidence in my younger looking face.
Have you tried NanoBlur before?
