It’s a little funny, in a positive way, that booming local beauty brand Happy Skin first came out with their Silicone-Free foundation over a year ago and now they’re presenting one that offers the benefits of a silicone primer base and more. It just proves they’re out to help everyone. It’s true some people would rather live with less or no silicone in facial products but others who don’t react can benefit from it’s filling and smoothing properties. This new product can be worn alone or under your makeup to help mattify and extend its staying power (sort of like what the brand Living Proof does for hair-styling) and also boasts some stable yet active age-defying ingredients to help keep the years at bay. Presenting Happy Skin’s new Insta Beauty blur cream primer foundation which is basically a smoothing, mattifying silicone-based primer with a generous amount of tint. This is waterproof-ish primer I was talking about that wouldn’t come off in my previous review of NEKKID Cleansing cream, all my makeup came off with the cleanse but the layer of this was left behind underneath and I had to use a makeup remover to finish the job.

An aunt of mine in her 40s (but looks like shes in her early 30s) a couple of months back was constantly getting fresh compliments about her makeup. I love custom creation stories like hers. She told me that based on the tips I gave her and videos I’d been sending she had personally created her own base routine which delivers a difference that works for her and she would diligently do it just with fingers. She had begun blending Porefessional silicone primer together with another base or BB Cream she was using to create a blurred tinted base which looked like she had a fresh, shine-free yet radiant complexion with less visible wrinkles and pores. She had steps when she told me this tale, how some areas of the face only received the primer and other areas the blend of her base with the primer. Now this product here by Happy Skin could have technically been the birth-child of my Tita’s experiment, in reality it isn’t, but it is a very closely related makeup concept. I believe if she knew this product existed (I haven’t told her yet) she’d be onto this item in a millisecond. Click through to get the full post and see how it looks on my skin.
