Review: Avon Magi X Face Perfector

A magical new air-light gel-powder colorless formula that makes all skin tones look flawless... invisible coverage; instant perfection.

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.


Quality: 3 out of 5
Packaging 5 out ot 5
Size: 1 fl ounce
Price: $10
Where to buy: Avon.com

PROS:
-it has SPF 20
-it fills in pores, makes them appear slightly smaller
-makes foundation stay on longer
-doesn't made me break out

CONS:
-the smell might bug some people
-it doesn't do enough to control oil for me, but I know its worked better in that area for others
-when first applying foundation it slips around a bit, this just means I have to blend a little more, no big deal

Smell: It does have a slight fruit gone bad smell, but its quite faint and I don't even notice it.

Texture: Its got a strange gel/powder feel. I don't know how it manages to be both at the same time but its not bad.

Oil Control: I don't think it does a whole lot for me in that area. There may be some difference, but not enough for me to be thrilled or anything.

Pores: Without foundation it doesn't look as if it makes any difference at all on the size of my pores, but when I put foundation on they look less deep and a little smaller. Thats a big plus for me because my pores are huge.

I've never been impressed with anything I get from Avon except the bubble bath. I'm going to have to try their makeup again.
