The new L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes, $12.99 each
One day you may find yourself half-jokingly agreeing to run a half marathon.
Then, later, as the illustrious day approaches, you may find yourself hoping that the people who invited you to run the race with them, forget (oh please, oh please, oh please!).
Chances are, they won’t.
So you start training.
During your first 10-mile training run on the treadmill, maybe you develop a wicked case of chafing, and maybe it’s directly under the middle strap of your sports bra, right there on your solar plexus.
Maybe it hurts (it does, a lot).
And maybe the only painkillers that seem to work at all are happy thoughts.
Happy thoughts about happy things, like blush. Like the new L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes ($12.99 each, and available in three shades).

Hello, genius! That’s what these new blurring blushes are, especially if you’re a dame of a certain age (if you catch my drift).
Imagine the slick, slippery, silicone-like feel of a Smashbox primer, but in more natural-looking colors, like light peach, medium pink and medium berry.
Introducing the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes.
With a MAC Lipglass for scale
They feel kind of like a mousse…and I think they definitely make the skin tone and texture of my cheeks look more even and smoother.
These are really great disciplinarians when it comes to those pores that are constantly trying to out-diva each other. I have some on the apples of my cheeks that are like Christina, Mariah, Beyonce and Celine, and these blushes make everyone play nice.
Whenever I wear one of them, my pores look mellower and smaller (but aren’t completely gone, of course), and I swear my skin looks smoother.
