Get a perfect complexion in an instant

I've been using Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector in Champagne Shimmer since receiving it in the lovely goodie bag at the Fashion Bloggers' Brunch. This product is a bit of a beauty all-rounder - apply it alone as a base if your skin doesn't need much coverage, apply under foundation as a primer, or mix a bit with your foundation to give it a bit of radiance.

On lazy days I am loving this as a quick alternative to foundation - it blends really easily on my skin and evens out skintone, minimizes pores and adds some glow. I add some concealer under my eyes and top with powder and I'm done! Don't fear the shimmer in the name - the light-reflecting properties do give your skin a luminous look, but don't look obvious or sparkly.

This is also available in Rose Shimmer (for brightening your complexion) or Bronze Shimmer (for a lightly sunkissed look). Priced at around €27, get it now from Clarins counters.

i just got this in 00 rose shimmer.
the stuff works great but the pink hue looks a little weird on my yellow skin. is champagne then a more golden, skin tone shade?

Yes, sounds like champagne might suit your skintone more - it has a very light golden finish.
