ENG: Okay, it took me a while to figure out how to use this product properly, because at the beginning, we didn't get along so well. First of all, you need to let your moisturizer really set in before you can apply this base. By the way, Face Blur can be used as a base for your make-up or, if you have a clean face, you can use it on it's own. Works fine both ways.
Now where was i? Ah, right. Let your moisturizer do it's thing before you apply this base. Second tip: it has a creamy, almost silky, powdery consistency after you apply it on your face. It also brightens up your complexion a little bit. Not too much, but you can see the difference in the mirror: more glowy, more bright, more awake. So after you apply it, let it sit for at least 3 minutes before you continue with your foundation/bb cream/bb cushion. Why? Because it makes your pores look smaller and kinda sinks into your fine lines.
If you're in a rush and you immediately apply your foundation, everything will sit on top of your skin. Which brings us to the third tip: don't put too much product. Just half the pump is more than enough. Face Blur creates a sort of barrier between your skin and foundation and it just looks weird. Like, everything you put on top stays there and looks fake. It looks like you have a mask on, which is why i had to remove my make-up and start everything from scratch again. :))
So, don't put too much product in hopes that it will make you look like a plastic Barbie. Doesn't work that way! :)) You have to blend it really well into your skin, otherwise you'll end up with white, powdery, streaky lines.
Another thing that i've noticed: this product is really good at hiding pores, to give you that photoshopped look, hence the name Beauty Shot, but in approx. 2-3 hours you'll feel your skin dehydrated. It enhances your dry areas, usually located around the nose and/or mouth. Also, be sure to really clean your face to avoid clogging, since it sets so well into your lines and pores.
So, if you know you have to take some photos, this product is worth it's money, but it only lasts so long.

RO: Okay, mi-a luat ceva vreme pana sa ma prind cum "functioneaza" acest produs. La inceput, nu prea ne intelegeam noi, dar i-am dat de capat pana la urma. Primul tip pe care vi-l dau este sa lasati crema voastra de zi sa intre bine in piele, inainte de a aplica acest produs. Apropo, Face Blur poate fi folosit si ca baza de machiaj sau daca sunteti mandra posesoare a unei fete mai curate, fara prea multe imperfectiuni, merge purtat si simplu.
Acum, unde am ramas eu? Ah, da. Lasati crema de zi sa intre bine in piele, sa hidrateze, sa faca ce-o vrea ea pe acolo, apoi aplicati aceasta baza. Al doilea tip: are o consistenta cremoasa, fina ca matasea la atingere, dar pe masura ce o masati in piele, devine usor pudrata. Ilumineaza fata, nu mult, dar ceva-ceva tot se vede in oglinda, devine mai glowy si mai treaza. Dupa aplicare, recomand sa asteptati barem 3 minute inainte sa puneti mana pe fondul de ten/bb cream/ bb cushion. De ce? Pentru ca intr-adevar va micsoreaza porii, dar daca va grabiti si il aplicati imediat, nu prea arata grozav. Tot machiajul parca ar sta la suprafata :)) Ceea ce ne aduce la al treilea tip: nu aplica prea mult produs. Jumatate de pompita este de ajuns pentru toata fata. Face Blur creeaza o bariera intre fata ta si restul produselor, fond de ten, corector, pudra, s.a.m.d. si arata cam ciudatel. Totul parca sta la suprafata si arata destul de fals, parca am purta o masca. Prima data a trebuit sa imi dau jos tot machiajul pentru ca nu mi-a placut deloc cum se vedea.
Deci, jumatate de pompita si va faceti toata treaba. Daca aplicati mai mult, va asigur ca n-o sa aratati ca o papusa Barbie de plastic. :)) Produsul trebuie masat bine in piele, altfel o sa va treziti cu cateva liniute albe pudrate pe fata.
O alta chestie pe care am observat-o: da, intr-adevar acest produs ajuta la minimizarea porilor ca sa va ofere acel filtru smooth din photoshop, dar in aproximativ 2-3 ore, pielea devine usor deshidratata. Scoate in evidenta portiunile uscate de pe fata, de obicei localizate in jurul gurii sau/si nasului.
Un mic sfat: aveti grija sa va demachiati bine de tot ca sa evitati blocarea porilor. Am zis si mai sus, acest produs se seteaza bine in liniile fine si pori, si nu cred ca vreti sa va treziti cu vreun monstrulet sau vreun punct negru pe fata pentru ca nu v-ati demachiat corespunzator.
Per total, daca stiti ca trebuie sa faceti niste poze, acest produs isi merita banutii, dar efectul nu tine mai mult de 2-3 ore.

ENG: As usual, i would love to know your opinion. Would you try out Face Blur? And if you did, how did you get along with it?

RO: Ca intotdeauna, astept cu drag feedback-ul vostru. Dupa cele citite, v-ar tenta acest produs? Daca l-ati incercat deja, cum v-ati inteles cu el?

Have a lovely day!
