Once upon a time, before face primers were readily available to everyone, I was at the airport waiting for my flight and decided to go digging through the duty free makeup counters. I found Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Makeup Base and I fell in love with it right there and then. I've gone through tons of jars since then and trust me when I say it was some of the best-spent money makeup-wise during my teen years.
The Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch Makeup Base smooths lines and open pores and makes applying makeup super easy. It helps to control shine, but it won’t control it on it’s own. According to Clarins, it works because “acacia Micro-Pearls sink into wrinkles and fine lines and increase in size as they absorb moisture naturally released by the skin, smoothing its surface. Plant key ingredients and Vitamin E protect the skin.”
Once you open the little jar it comes in, you’ll find a light-salmon kind of mousse that melts right into your skin. It comes with a tiny little spatula for sanitary reasons and for the comfort of those who have longer fingernails! A little goes a long, long way and you can use it alone, under your foundation, or mix it with your usual foundation. If you use powder foundation and are worried that it might slip if you use primers that are not powder or are not sticky, rest assured that it won’t happen. As an added benefit, you makeup, no matter the texture it has, will last a lot longer.
