Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 02 Champagne

Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base is a brand new illuminating base with some skincare benefits, including katafray plant extract that naturally boosts skin's radiance and hydrates. This base is available in 3 shades : 01 Rose gives maximum radiance, 02 Champagne corrects redness, and 03 Peach revives the radiance of tanned complexions.

I chose the shade 02 Champagne because redness is my main problem. I was curious to see how a golden beige primer would work to counteract the redness, since usually these products are green!

It can be worn alone or under your favorite foundation. Please keep in mind though that it doesn't have a lot of coverage. One thing that surprised me is that it really calm down the redness I have on the sides of my nose! It gives a subtle luminous finish on bare skin and even out the complexion, but you will need to apply concealer over redness and others imperfections if your skin is too blotchy.

This base is lightly moisturizing and doesn't have an heavy sillicone feel, which is great because I usually can't stand silicone primers because they make my makeup slide around. This one really helps my makeup stay on for a longer period of time.

You will love this product if you are on the lookout for a good primer with some skincare benefits, or something to wear when you only want to even out your skintone and give an instant boost! I like to wear it alone when I don't want to wear a full face of makeup, I just add some concealer where I need it. However, I have to admit that I was hoping that it would look more luminous when I wear it under my foundation, it was quite subtle hence why I prefer to wear it alone to show that beautiful glow.

The Clarins Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base in 02 Champagne retail for $37 CDN for 30ml.
