a radiance booster

One of my favourite purchases for this Summer is this Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base. Phew, what's with all the long names though. I picked it up in the colour 02 champagne.

It both illuminates and corrects the skin and can be worn on its own or under foundation. I tend to just wear it alone and with a bit of concealer wherever I need to. I think it's a great option to wear in Summer, as it's just a light base, but still makes you look awake and radiant.

It doesn't really give a lot of coverage,  so to cover up any dark circles or blemishes you will have to use a concealer. Easy fix though. If you have oily skin, I would also use a powder to keep shine at bay.

To me the biggest advantage though, is that it comes with a pump. I was so surprised by it because I thought it was just a tube and things were going to get messy and I would end up spilling half of it, but none of that. Score.

Do you use a lighter base in Summer? Have you tried this one?
