Getting smooth, even skin is a goal of many beauty and skincare enthusiasts. Now, TikTok creators have discovered what they’re calling the secret to “blurring” and perfecting your skin — and it’s a $15 wonder-product.

The Revolution Pro Blur Stick is said to blur every pore, line or skin concern on your face. The makeup stick went viral after an instantly iconic review from TikTok user @soprimp. The quick clip, which has more than 1.2 million likes on the platform, was likely the cause of the product selling out for months earlier this year.

In the video, @soprimp says, “I am literally stocking up on this because I have never in my life experienced something that actually blurs everything on your freaking face. Like where is my nose? I didn’t wear any makeup today. I only wore this. No joke.”

To use the Revolution Pro Blur Stick, you swipe on the product and blend it out with your fingers, a beauty blender or a dense brush. The product diffuses fine lines and visible pores, and can be used alone or with foundation as a primer.

The product is said to leave skin with a smooth and matte look. It’s suitable for all skin types and goes on clear, meaning it adapts to any skin tone, though it appears to be a beige hue. 

Positive reviews of the stick say the primer is long-lasting, hydrating and like a real-life filter. Those who were critical of the product say they weren’t a fan of the smell and didn’t like the texture. Many reviewers additionally said the product was likely best-suited for those with dry to combination skin.

If you want to basically blur your nose into oblivion, the Revolution Pro Blur Stick just may be worth the try. TikTok says so.
