Review Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector in Invisible Light | GUILT/LUST

I am dreaming wedding (details here) while you read Kamilla's insightful review about the Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Instant Perfector...
________________________________________________

Clinique Pore Refining Instant Perfector minimizes the appearance of pores for a smooth and virtually flawless look. It is best used with finger-dotting technique and blended over pores alone, over or under makeup for touch-ups. In my experience, this perfector works best over liquid makeup, bb cream, or concealer. The mattifying effect is great for shiny t-zones, and gives my skin a smooth, even look. Overall, it lasts for many hours, and I don’t have to worry about blotting my t-zone. The pores disappear immediately. The result will be a matte, evened out skin tone with an airbrushed effect. However, this effect is only temporary, and the formulation is not an actual serum or a treatment. The key is to use a small amount, and not to overdo it, as the build-up could cause flakiness and easily rub off.

Formulas available:

  • Invisible Bright - for subtle brightening
  • Invisible Light - for lighter skintones
  • Invisible Deep - for darker skintones



Product claim: This complexion perfector makes pores appear smaller, working instantly to help skin look smooth and virtually flawless. Its natural-looking matte finish lasts up to eight hours and resists sweat and humidity.


Pros:

  • good for a quick fix
  • reasonably priced
  • works well as a primer
  • great over makeup
  • lightweight and long-lasting
  • a little goes a long way
  • controlling the oil production
  • for all skin types

Cons:

  • no long-term benefits
  • can be drying for sensitive and dry skin
  • the older formula used to be better
  • small tube

Sephora average rating: 4.2/5
Makeup Alley rating: 3.5/5
My rating: 3.8/5

Would I buy this again? Yes
