review: clarins instant light complexion perfector

Friday, 8 March 2013

I've always held Clarins in high regard. Their skincare is really good so I thought I would branch out and dabble in their makeup range. With my skin feeling a lot fresher and lighter, I'm going for a fresher makeup look with minimal products that give me a glowy finish. 

The Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector

'...smooths and evens skin tone for a more luminous glow and fresh, radiant, healthy-looking complexion. This lightweight texture glides on effortlessly, illuminating the complexion and promoting a long-wearing natural finish. Can be used alone, under or mixed in with your usual foundation'.

I've been using this before putting on my foundation and I must say, it's pretty good. It doesn't have too much shimmer in it so it doesn't look like you've dipped your face in sparkles. It just gives off a gentle glow and luminosity that I love, especially for emulating the flawless korean makeup look. The application of it is very impressive as well. It glides on very smoothly and a little goes a long way in this case. 

The one gripe I have with this is the packaging and in particular that pump. I know it's a bit pernickety but when I push the pump, it feels like I don't have enough control in how much product comes out because it doesn't push down that far. A minor issue but it's more of a preference thing.

I haven't tried using this on its own yet but I will probably will when I get towards my lazy days! You can buy this online or at a Clarins counter for £26.00. A little pricey but well worth the splurdge if you're looking to add something special to your makeup routine.

    important to do the training and get the recovery, but also the change went against
    the conventional wisdom box that I needed.
