Magic Blur For Instant Perfection | Clozette

Why does the word "instant" attract so many people? It's because people are always on-the-go and rarely have time to do things with the luxury of time. Sometimes, even the busy life of a fashionista can interfere with proper skincare. But that can all be solved with L'Oréal's newest addition to their Revitalift family, the Magic Blur. It's basically the answer to achieving younger looking skin in an instant and we are totally in love with it!

Magic Blur is the first revolutionary breakthrough in skincare that instantly blurs skin imperfections thanks to its Opti-blur Technology. With a unique non-greasy, non-sticky, and weightless cushiony texture, Magic Blur works like magic on the skin by reducing facial lines visibility, pore visibility, and skin roughness in just a matter of seconds. It's perfect for making your skin look flawless through the day.

After all, facial lines come naturally as women reach their mid-20s, which means that women should start the prevention of skin ageing now. This can be achieved by adding Magic Blur to your daily skincare routine. It perfects every woman’s daily regimen for younger looking skin by instantly blurring away pores, dullness, and facial lines.

Clozette recently got an exclusive peek of the L'Oréal Magic Blur and got to see for ourselves the instant blurring effect that made our skin look young and fresh in an instant. Here is a shot of GlamAsia's Features Editor, Alexandra Lapa, with Beauty Blogger, Kira Mae, during the launch party. 

Magic Blur is exclusively available at L’Oréal Paris counters at selected Watsons stores in the Philippines for only Php899.

When it comes to great skin, it all boils down to an effective cleansing routine. And Shu Uemura just added another stellar product to their comprehensive line of cleansing oils. But not before a few select Clozette Ambassadors were given an exclusive sneak peek at the new blanc:chroma brightening & polishing gentle cleansing oil.  

Over tea and cookies, the girls enjoyed an intimate learning session with Shu Uemura’s Assistant Product Manager, Zi Hui Lim, who took them through the high points of the brand’s history, the story behind the cult-favourite cleansing oils (a bottle is sold every seven seconds worldwide!), Shu Uemura’s beauty philosophies and introduced their new cleansing oil.  

The latest addition, the blanc:chroma brightening & polishing gentle cleansing oil promises not only to cleanse stubborn makeup, including mascara, but to also gently exfoliate to remove dead skin and impurities with filtered, purified lava clay for a brighter, lighter complexion. This one-step cleansing routine leaves you feeling clean, refreshed and with a clear complexion.   

Zi Hui also took the opportunity to clear all misconceptions the girls may have had about cleansing oils, and called on their makeup artist to take them through a step-by- step demonstration on how to properly use cleansing oils for best results. The trick is to start with a dry face and dry hands, smooth the oil all over your face, emulsify with water and wash off. Easy peasy. 

While the beauty of these oils lies in the fact that each can be used by any skin type, it’s best to pick one that that suits your skin concerns. One by one, the girls illustrated the areas of concern with the help of a fun face chart and Zi Hui explained which oil would work best for their respective concerns. 

The girls then got to try the cleansing oils from the extensive line to experience the benefits of each first hand. From the premium A/I cleansing beauty oil, to the anti/oxi skin refining anti-dullness cleansing oil and the ultime8 sublime beauty cleansing oil to the blanc:chroma brightening & polishing gentle cleansing oil, they experienced the perks of using oil cleansers. 

It was a fun afternoon filled with beauty banter and the time to leave came too soon, but not before groufies and wefies! Thank you Shu Uemura for giving us Clozetters a truly beautiful afternoon.

Editor's Note: For June's last feature as our Ambassador Insider, she shares the story of how she got started with Beauty Blogging and how she has continued to keep that beauty-writing passion alive through the years.

Read on to find out how she got her start!


It all began with a date…a very important one. I got asked out for dinner by my crush but I panicked. Being the rather tom-boyish character that I was, I knew absolute zilch about makeup (nor skincare for that matter). My meagre collection of makeup consisted of a ZA 2-way pressed powder compact and a LipIce lipbalm; and back then, skincare meant soap + water combo. I knew this moment of reckoning would be my undoing. 

I was also at that age of blossoming adolescent puberty and I was in dire straits because I was facing a terrible breakout on that same week. Alas, just when all hope was about to be lost, my mother came into the picture and saved the day.  I went to my date feeling like Cinderella when my Mom waved that magical mascara wand and got me looking and feeling beautiful for the date.

But all this got me thinking: like everything else in life, one needs to put in the same amount of effort to reap the rewards. 

And so I began to read up extensively on proper skincare and the right way to put makeup. Not only did I begin to feel better about myself, I began to act it and people began to notice. It fascinated me how like art, beauty tools and products can become a way of expressing oneself. Like a smokey look for when I’m feeling mysterious, or a bold red lip for days when I needed some confidence. It was like colour therapy and mood boosters on the go!


This then led to me becoming more enamoured with all things beauty. Just walking into Sephora and looking at the front row of sparkling new arrivals in their pristine pretty packaging sent my heart into palpitations. In 2013, under the urging of friends who knew that I had a closet passion for writing, I started my blog as an outlet to share my beauty hauls and reviews with friends and like-minded aficionados. 

But alas, where the spirit is willing, the ‘wallet’ is weak; and being a freelancer meant that my pockets were tight. So I got creative, tirelessly scouring social media and magazines for upcoming beauty events and lucky draws to try my hand at winning products so I could review them.

As luck would have it (pun totally intended), my efforts paid off one day when I won a $500 Philosophy hamper after joining their polaroid competition. I was beyond thrilled: my first formal beauty review ever! So I wrote my heart out and as a form of appreciation for the brand, I decided to send my review over to them should they need it. Unbeknownst to me then, Philosophy was just part of a business holdings group that managed other well-established brands. I guess they must have liked how I wrote, because I soon got more invitations to other beauty events.

And passion snowballed, I began to inch out of my shell and try to scale a new milestone: by joining the much coveted Singapore Blog Awards after much cajoling from friends. I didn't expect much when I was selected as there were many well-established bloggers and I was so new to the scene, so imagine my utter shock and surprise when I was told I was one of the finalist from the 60+ people who entered! It was a pretty steep learning curve as some of our challenges were to work with a curling iron and create a beauty tutorial (both of which, I had never done before!) Even though I didn't win in the end, the experience was a fun learning experience.  

As the blog grew, I eventually started to feel that I was growing along with it. I found a place amongst like-minded beauty bloggers with whom I've gained tips and sought inspiration from. My confidence grew and I began get more involved in the scene by signing up with Clozette, which has such a great community. It must have been the cherry on top of my blogging career, when I was invited to be an Ambassador!

It meant so much to me, because I've always had terribly low self-esteem and was quite the perennial wallflower. So this motivated me to use this opportunity to showcase my personality and what my blog stood for. Today, I’m still constantly evolving the way I write and discovering new things; but coming into the blogosphere is something I never looked back. More than just chasing a dream, it’s changed me and the way I look at the world.

PS: I still cannot put on falsies for the life of me. But hey, we all got to start somewhere!
