Primer Matters Series~ Fab! Tried It: Philosophy “the present: clear makeup”

22 Oct

Philosophy’s The Present: Clear Makeup boasts this on their bottle: “do you crave airbrushed skin do your wrinkles and pores deserve to appear minimized are you searching for a new foundation then we have a present for you.” Of course as I read it I answered an astounding YES!

Being plagued with acne as a teenager and as an adult, there are just some pores that are still open and scars that are still around that I would like to diminish more. I am curious after reading rave reviews of being a smooth and light weight primer, and after it was featured on The Today Show in their “favorite things” segment, what it would do for a person with skin like mines?

So, I ran off to my local favorite beauty supply store to pick this up and giving you the dish on whether or not it lives up to the hype.

the Present: Clear Makeup ($25)

So… what do we think? The smell is that of lavender– pretty pleasant. With just a dime size squirt out of this bottle, it covered my face with a non greasy feeling moisturizer. I applied it with my fingers and there was no residue or sticky feeling. To the touch shortly after, my face felt smooth… so now to apply we apply foundation.





After my first usage of this product, it did assist my foundation in going on smooth, it did minimize the appearance of my pores and I am hoping to see continual results. I will keep you posted.

Until then, BeautyFab! recommends this product. Have you tried this product? Tell me if you will or what you thought.
