Product Review: AVON Magix Face Perfector

.


Product: 2 out of 5
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Quality: 3.5 out of 5
Overall: 2.5 out of 5
Price: $7, Avon.com
Would I re-purchase? Probably not...

What they say: "A magical new air-light gel-powder colorless formula that makes all skin tones look flawless... invisible coverage; instant perfection. This colorless formula is perfect for anyone who want to look naturally flawless and beautiful without looking like you're wearing any makeup."

Targets pores: visibly minimizes pores with patent-pending Optix Light-Diffusing Technology. Banishes Shine: holds back shine for up to 10 hours. Smoothes Skin: reduces the look of fine lines...skin feels softer than ever.
Apply evenly before sun exposure or as needed.

PROS:
- Same consistency as the monistat gel I use as primer and the Smashbox Photo Finish
- Good size for traveling
- Affordable

CONS:
- It stinks, it smells like old watermelon
- Didn't really control shine for 10 hours like it claims, my face was still shiny at the end of the day
- Don't see how this can be used as is without foundation, id rather use my Dior Moisturizer if I was trying to go for the "no makeup" look

Overall? The smell really reeks and that alone would make me NOT buy it again, I think id rather just stick to my Monistat Chafing Gel, it's the same price and works like a charm for me. I also like Camellia Rose Skin Soothing Primer.

Thanks for the review. I thought about purchasing but after your review I'll stick with Montistat chaffing gel.

Phew! I'd been debating for weeks whether or not to get this. Looks like I'll be saving some dough then, LOL. Thanks for your review!

Trust me...i hate when products reek....i throw them away...i will still try it but if the odour is really overwhelming i will have to give it the boot...so did it minimize pores at least?
