Blur Creams/Foundations are proof of Instagram's influence on today's generation. Nowadays, it's not enough to wear plain foundation-it should be foundation that blurs like Reyes or Amaro and beautifies like VSCOCAM or Afterlight haha! I think there's nothing wrong with these standards just as long you know why you want what you want and you have a healthy sense of fantasy and reality.
So yeah, going back to Blur Creams/Foundations. What are the ones you have encountered in the market lately? I'm still new to these products so I haven't encountered a lot: First one was The Body Shop Instablur Primer and the second one is this: Happy Skin Instabeauty Blur Cream. Oooh! Let's check it out. :)
HAPPY SKIN INSTABEAUTY BLUR CREAM IN DETAIL
Instabeauty is the latest face base to join Happy Skin's growing roster of makeup products. This multitasking, lightly- tinted primer-cum-foundation claims to smooth fine lines, blur enlarged pores, even out and brighten the skin tone, and has anti-aging properties. Happy Skin also said that this product can be used under makeup. Currently, this product comes in one shade only.
Product comes in a soft, squeeze tube.
Check out my swatches of this product after the break.
Instabeauty comes in a fair beige shade with a strong yellow undertone. It has a mousse- like consistency, but it feels fairly light on the skin and it does not give you the feeling that there's a layer of makeup on top of your skin despite its consistency. It's very smooth, although payoff is a lil' streaky because it's just lightly- tinted, meaning the concentration of pigments is low, thus it cannot give a thicker color coverage. That said, I believe it's more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. Pigmentation is sheer to light and finish is semi- matte.

Instabeauty is pretty light for my skin tone and cannot conceal dark marks, sadly.
Here's a close- up shot of Instabeauty. It covered up my enlarged pores, specifically on the nose area. Again, coverage is pretty streaky.
Unless you will let people stare really close at your skin, Instabeauty looks pretty okay at a normal distance. Whether you use it as a foundation or primer, it will give you a much smoother skin texture. However, it does not have significant oil- controlling properties as my T-Zone would get oily with it in as little as 2 hours. I like that this product has pretty great smoothing effects, but I wish it had better oil control, coverage, and shade selection. I think gals with normal skin types who only need a smoothing primer/tinted moisturizer will like this product. It's not for me, unfortunately.
