Over the years I have tried and tested many makeup bases and primers; some were hits while others totally missed the mark. Today I have a review on the amazing Instant Smooth Perfecting Base by Clarins which has quickly become one of my must-have beauty items! I have been using this base everyday and in the humidity of summer when I need my makeup to stay intact and maintain its smoothness this is my go-to product!
When I apply BB creams, foundation and concealer I prefer seamless coverage and a flawless finish. Clarins calls this base “magic makeup” because it is formulated to smooth away the appearance of fine lines, enlarged pores and imperfections. The texture of the base is ultra creamy and thick but it feels light-weight after blending and glides on effortlessly. It makes skin feel firm, silky smooth and creates a translucent veil for an even, flawless finish.
The base has a very light scent and contains mico-pearls to fill in wrinkles and uneven texture. It works well over dry skin and under the eyes for smooth makeup application. It also protects against dehydration with a non-greasy formula and contains plant ingredients and vitamin E. This cream definitely helps boost my complexion and the finish of my makeup. It also makes my face look fresh and improves the adhesion of my foundation for consistent, full coverage.
If you are looking for a great base to improve the appearance of your makeup then look no further! I definitely recommend giving this product a try, I rarely apply my makeup without it! It retails for $35.00 and you can find it online HERE or at select retailers.
