About: silicone-based primer designed to reduce the appearance of open pores and fine lines. Packaged in a small glass jar with twist lid.
Review: A smoothing primer designed to magically erase the appearance of lines, pores and imperfections, Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch also helps to bond makeup to your skin. The smooth silicone consistency is not a formula that I personally enjoy the feel of (I personally prefer liquid primers), but Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch really does erase the appearance of large open pores. A little goes a long way as the formula spreads over the skin with ease. While the rich velvety texture is oil-free, I would not recommend Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch for an excessively oily skin, as my skin is a little oily and still had a shine factor after a few hours. While I would like to say that the primer made my makeup last longer, I would have to say that my makeup probably could have lasted as long without it and I really wish it offered a mattifying effect as well, hence its 3-star rating.
