Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base

There's no doubting it, I'm a primeraholic. I love the stuff, illuminating, mattifying, colour correcting the list goes on, I just can't get enough of the stuff. So I  was shopping in Bamboo Beauty a month or so ago and picked up this lovely Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base, and breath. I do have quite a lot of redness around my cheeks and nose but I am naturally more yellow toned in my skin, which is why I went for shade 02 - Champagne with this primer. This particular shade is more aimed at correcting redness and with it's yellow undertones it was perfect for me.

It contains "radiance pigments" which help to diffuse light and this is what helps to give that glow and radiance to your skin. When pumped out it is very yellow in colour with a slight peachy tone to it, don't let this put you off as when applied to your face it easily blends out and just gives a lovely sheer coverage ready for you to apply your makeup onto.
I quite often mix this into my foundation to give an even better glow for evenings when I want to glam it up a little more, or on days where I really don't fancy wearing foundation I just apply this primer over my moisturiser as normal and just apply a little under eye concealer for dark circles and I'm away. The coverage of this product is just amazing for any redness and the product also has a lovely light Jasmine like scent to it.

At £26.00 for 100ml this product is well worth it, if like me you struggle with redness and have yellow undertones then this primer is your new best friend. Oh Clarins, you never fail to amaze me.
