I have learned that when another artist whom you admire recommends a product, it is always advisable to immediately go out and try it. Maybe that is just my excuse to purchase new products, but hey, it's worked for me! When I heard that Pati Dubroff, the new Clarins spokesperson, raved about Clarins Instant Smooth perfecting touch, and Instant Smooth Line Correcting concentrate, I rushed to Bloomies and scooped them up. I had an upcoming shoot I was about to work on, and decided to put these two puppies to the test. Boy, did they live up to the hype!
Both products erased and blurred my clients fine lines, softened the dry skin, and provided a stunning canvas for foundation. There was no greasy residue, or creasing. The second artist on set promptly asked me what I was using, and I enthusiastically shared with her my new discovery. Run, run, run out and grab this wicked duo! And a big happy makeup artist thank you to Pati for passing along these little miracle workers.
Here are the details:
Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch:
- The perfect marriage of make-up and skin care for a spectacular beauty effect.
- A magical melting, invisible texture perfectly smoothes the skin by leaving an imperceptible veil over its surface.
- Wrinkles and fine lines are visually minimized to guarantee a flawless complexion.
- 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.
- Awarded 'Best Make-Up Primer' from 'Health' 2007 Best Award
Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate:
- A portable version of Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch that can be applied directly onto lines for touch-ups throughout the day.
- The high precision silicone tip targets the heart of the wrinkle to fill it in and smooth it away.
- Dermaxyl®, a line correcting peptide. When combined with existing Instant Smooth ingredients, immediately smoothes skin and helps “repair” age-related damage.
- Double the concentration of Acacia Micro-Pearls to help smooth away lines, pores and imperfections. They glide into creases, acting like sponges, absorbing moisture and expanding into lines and wrinkles
- High concentration of line-correcting Soft Focus pigments to help minimize shadowy areas and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and enlarged pores.
