It’s no secret that the fashion maven-turned-beauty guru Trinny Woodall’s eponymous make up line is chock full of hard-working, minimum fuss products.
Launched just two years ago, the line has already won over hoards of die-hard fans for its buildable, glow-getting products that require minimum skill to apply – Trinny is a big fan of applying make-up with her fingers (no need for a thousand different bushes and sponges here). Even YOU’s beauty director Edwina Ings-Chambers calls her ‘the champion of practical, easy, on-the-go make-up’.
Along with Trinny’s genius idea to sell her products in stackable pots (which together create customisable travel-sized make up kits), many Trinny London products have achieved cult status, not least the Miracle Blur Lip and Line Filler.
Designed to be applied to any lines around the lips or dimpling from acne scarring, the tiny pot of wonder instantly blurs and fills out fine lines and imperfections for smooth and perfectly even skin – it’s no wonder it sells one every 21 seconds. It works because it’s infused with collagen and elastin, which improve the appearance of fine lines, and Vitamin E and C, which help maintain skin’s hydration barrier.
Not called Miracle Blur for no reason, the £26 product really does what it says on the tin – the fact that it’s sold out no less than four times since its launch tells you everything you need to know. If you’re still left feeling a little apprehensive of its power, the reviews should swing you: ‘I’m normally a little sceptical about anything with the word miracle in the title. Not with this little pot. It really does exactly what it says on the box and I really wouldn’t be without it,’ says one.
While another gushes: ‘Wow a wonderful makeup, face changing product, it smooths the skin beautifully and hides away lines around my mouth and eyes. Love it, thank you Trinny xx.’
While the name suggests it’s only for fine lines around the lips, Trinny says it can just as easily be used anywhere on the face, such as to minimise crows feat around the eyes or even enlarged pores on the cheeks. The handy video below shows Trinny telling us exactly how to use the wonder product.
