This light-reflecting, oil-free and hydrating foundation perfectly combines mineral and plant ingredients to create a naturally radiant complexion with light to medium coverage. Clarins Light-Optimizing+ Complex and Pink Opal Pigments, combined with a unique blend of ingredients, continuously hydrate and protects skin resulting in a beautifully radiant and perfectly even complexion. 

Firstly the texture of the foundation is very liquidy and fine, it comes with a handy pump and is very easy to control how much you are dispensing literally three small pumps (double the amount of whats in the picture above) is enough to equally cover my face and neck. The coverage I would say is light to medium and very easily buildable. With the texture being runny I didn't expect much coverage but to my surprise the coverage is pretty great, finish effect is almost as if I'm not wearing any foundation at all which always a good thing. I love the feel of this on my skin too it doesn't give me that cakey feeling neither does it look cakey.

Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch

This award winning primer is the perfect combination of make-up and skin care. With an ultra-light, ultra-smooth texture it glides on skin, leaving a imperceptible veil on its surface, filling in and smoothing away the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores. Your skin is left ' foundation ready' to give your make-up a more even and flawless finish. Can also be used alone or mixed-in with your foundation. 

The Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch is basically a primer which smooths all your imperfections, fine lines, visible pores etc. It has a mousy texture and leaves a very smooth finish. This product works as the PERFECT base under your foundation, you can also mix this in with your foundation or you can wear this alone without any foundation.

Overall - I love using these two together and get an amazing finish, this foundation is great for a dewy look or you can set with matte powder.

  1. I have a tiny pot of the Instant Smooth and I absolutely love it for smoothing over pores and fine lines, I'll be so sad when it runs out! The foundation sounds really good, too :) Buildable coverage is always handy.
