Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector

To be honest, I don't pay too much attention to my pores. This might be down to the fact that I don't own one of those magnifying mirrors and that I haven't been for a facial in a good few years.

The reason I was drawn to this product is actually because of Benefit. I was captured by a Benefit girl at Debenhams a few weeks ago and she showed me their cult primer The Porefessional. I was all ready to let her convince me I needed it in my life, until she mentioned the fact that it's £23.50...

I've read pretty good things about it and I'm sure it's a great product, but I think that price is a tad ridiculous.

Anyway, ranting aside, the concept of The Porefessional had got me interested in minimizing my face craters, so when I came across the Instant Perfector by Clinique I kind of had to have it (even though, at £18, it's not that much cheaper than The Porefessional :/)

   All in all, I'm pretty happy with this product. It's subtely tinted, comfortable to wear and has a really soft, almost powdery finish. I applied it this morning and still have it on now and it hasn't left my face shiny but hasn't sapped the moisture from it either.

I don't have the SLR at the moment, so wasn't able to get a decent photo but I'm sure it gave my complexion a noticeably smoother, more even finish. I guess you'll just have to take my word for it :)

Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector is available in 2 skin tone shades - Invisible Light (that's the one I have) and Invisible Dark or Invisible Bright for skin that's a bit on the dull side.

Have you tried the Instant Perfector?

Thanks for reading :*
