PERFECT YOUR COMPLEXION

Thursday, 24 January 2013



You know when you try something new with your makeup, you check yourself in the mirror and then you just think.... yep, exactly what I was hoping for. 

I think the question I am asked most, especially by my friends is how to get glowy/dewy skin. Now there are many different ways, but this product from Clarins has quickly been added to the glowy/dewy list. The Instant Light Complexion Perfector is a creamy product that kind of feels like a tinted moisturiser. It's a radiance boosting 'complexion perfector' and I use this two ways. I've tried using it on it's own and it didn't do much for me, I then tried it under my foundation which I really liked. It provides a really nice base and makes your skin look really fresh. My favourite way to use it is to mix it in with my foundation and the one I find it works best with is my Laura Mercier Silk Creme. 

Although I like my Silk Creme, it does feel a bit like thick paint sometimes and mixing the Clarins in makes it so much lighter and it looks much better on my skin. It's my favourite combo at the moment! 

The Complexion Perfector comes in three shades and I love it! I actually prefer using shade 01 as I'm quite pale at the moment, but 02 will be a great Summer shade.

  4. Lily I use the bronze one for darkening my foundation when I'm a bit tanned and I LOVE it! It never gets talked about so I'm so glad you've done a post on this because this is such a great product!! It mixes well with all foundations I think and that's the best way to use it xxx

  6. Hi Lily, thanks for this review! Question: is this a good product to use if I have oily / mix skin? I'm guessing no since it gives a dewy complexion and I'm already quite shiny. But just let me know, would be great! Thanks! xo, Michelle

  13. Hi Lily,
    I think my skin is in between pale and medium. I have yellow undertones. Would you still suggest 01 Rose Shimmer for skin with yellow undertones? You have yellow undertones aswell I think. I'm so confused...Thank you:))xxx Anna

  17. Hi..i tried using Clinique previously but it dried out my skin so bad that my pores got so visible and huge! I've since moved to using Cellnique (not to be confused with clinique). A friend's friend recommended this brand to me. I must say i was quite hesitant at the beginning, but im glad i tried this brand out! though it may be a little bit on the expensive side, but it's worth it! my skin is glowing! i will definitely continue using this brand. :)

  20. Beautiful idea to mix them. I often struggle when it comes to making my skin look as I want it to, but I guess I've been relying too much on my foundation, and not enough on certain other things. I use and love the Clarins Instant Touch primer, but it definitely won't make you dewey. It seems like this Instant Light business would be much more up my street! x

  21. I use the origins vitazing moisturiser at the moment which sounds quite similar to the clarins, this combination sounds so lovely! xx
