New Dupe Alert: Soft Glam Filter Fluid
Flawless skin that looks filtered in real life is the stuff of our beauty dreams. With it, we can look effortlessly put together regardless of what we’re wearing or how many hours of sleep we got the night before (yes, please!). With the growing number of GRWM posts on how to achieve Soft Glam skin, one thing is clear: getting the filtered skin effect isn’t cheap or easy. Well, until now, that is.
Meet the new Catrice Soft Glam Filter Fluid. A flawless filter dupe that will change your beauty routine for the better. Not only is it budget-friendly, but it works just as well as the pricey versions promising to do the same for your skin.
WHAT IT IS
Think of this product as a beauty genie that will instantly illuminate your skin. It’s like an all-in-one version of a primer, highlighter and lightweight tint. It makes quick work on helping to blur imperfections and create a seamless complexion while providing sheer coverage and a whole lot of glow. Its lightweight, fluid texture becomes one with your skin making it look really natural yet radiant. Thanks to ingredients like vitamin E and squalane, it’s also super nourishing and hydrating for your skin.
WHY YOU NEED IT
As the skinimalism look continues with trends like Soft Glam Skin and the Clean Girl Aesthetic, the coveted flawless filtered-skin effect isn’t going anywhere. And we get why. Who wouldn’t want the look of a complexion that’s naturally flawless looking with a subtle glow in all the right places? The practical reasons are just as convincing. This illuminating face fluid will essentially do the work of three products: primer, highlighter and a skin tint. Now that’s what we call major added value.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHADE
As with any complexion-focused product, think seasonally when it comes to choosing the right shade for your skin. Aim for the color that’s closest to your current (not ideal) skin tone. That means if you’re shopping in the winter, you’re going to need a different shade in the summer, and vice versa. Be sure to go with a shade that also syncs up with your undertones. Are they cool or warm? The good news is that there is less room for a color mismatch with this fluid as its texture is sheer, not opaque.
HOW TO APPLY IT
Now for the easy and fun part: you can apply this illuminating skin fluid in myriad ways to suit your daily makeup needs. It can be applied as a glowy makeup base, like you would normally apply primer, before your foundation to give your foundation a luminous lift. If you’re a skin tint type, this can be your only complexion product as you can easily use it as a sheer glow tint that looks oh-so-natural and pretty. Lastly, you can apply this as a finishing highlighter once your makeup is done by adding it to key areas of your face, like your cheekbones up to your temples and on your nose. Its handy applicator features a built-in dabber so you can get nice and precise with your application and then just blend it in using your fingers or a beauty sponge.
