Catrice 1 Minute Face Perfector ($7.99) is a new magical mini miracle facial primer that launched for Summer 2019 and may it ever always be apart of the Catrice line of products because it’s amazing.
According to Catrice this new lightweight mousse primer perfects your skin in one minute. I beg to differ because it perfects and creates a flawless finish in a few seconds. This stuff is amazing!
Catrice 1 Minute Face Perfector arrives in a glass jar that’s $7.99 and holds 0.59 oz of product. It’s available in one shade and promises to mattify and make pores and skin imperfections invisible. It quite reminds of Essence Soft Touch Mousse Make-Up in texture. It’s a soft, whipped mousse that has a slippery silicone feel. I used to be a MASSIVE fan of Bourjois Paris Mineral Matte Foundation and this stuff reminds a lot of it!
The color is horrifying! When I got it I was actually concerned it would give my complexion a muddy appearance! It says it adapts to most skin tones and it actually did as soon as I applied it the shade seemed turn and ended up look more like a light medium beige. It applies pretty sheer but I could swear it evened out my complexion and brightened it up a bit. I started wearing it alone without any foundation on top of it for this reason!
I don’t have visible pores aside from smaller ones on my nose and I think the surface of my skin is fairly smooth already but this stuff just made me looked airbrushed after I applied. My skin looked like a baby’s behind! Immediately after applying it my entire complexion looked like someone applied a filtered to it. It just looked so much smoother and flawless. The results were pretty dramatic. I’m not a big fan of the slippery silicone texture but it applies and blends out well without pilling or catching on drier areas on my face. It does reduce some minor shine and oil I have as my skin tends to produce a little more oil in the Summer and it did a good job mattifying that. Once it set it didn’t make me feel oily or slipper! Some silicone primers do but this was lightweight, breathable, and didn’t make my skin feel slippery. Foundation applied beautifully on top of it and it did seem to extend the wear of my makeup.
As I mentioned, it’s also wonderful all by itself! I started wearing it on the weekends alone! Just a bit of this, some blush, curl my lashes and go! I look fresh faced and flawless with minimal effort.
All in all, this is a solid offering from Catrice (but hey, they rarely disappoint anyway right?) which I hope they’ll keep in the permanent line of products. I think it’s an undiscovered gem still but once people find out about it I’m sure it’ll blow up!
Get it! You won’t regret it!
Where to buy
Catrice 1 Minute Face Perfector is a new whipped mousse facial primer that’s available in a single universal shade which is 0.59 oz and $7.99. I love this stuff and can’t rave it enough! The smooth, whipped texture applies easily on my drier skin and instantly makes me look airbrushed! It doesn’t pill and wears well under my foundation or on its own for a natural look. The shade is a muddier orange brown but it seems to adapt well to my skin tone and evens out and brightens my complexion while providing a solid base for my foundation to adhere to and it does seem to act to extend the wear of it as well while curbing oil and shine. It’s like a little mini miracle in a jar! This stuff makes you look flawless in a few seconds.
- Nice texture that applies easily.
- Creates and instant airbrushed look so skin appears smoother and more flawless!
- Weird shade but it the “color adaption” they promise works for me!
Catrice 1 Minute Face Perfector is an ideal pick for anyone with less than smooth skin or pores that need blurring! But even if that’s not a problem for you it’s still worth a pick up as it’s like an Instagram filter in a jar!
