While a liquid formula is what I usually reach for out of habit, during the summer (and definitely for travel), I love the ease and convenience of a compact makeup. New from Clinique, Moisture Surge CC Cream Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is now available in a compact…and it’s fabulous!
While it’s a mouthful to say, this next-generation formula delivers all the benefits you’d expect from Clinique and from a great CC cream. You can expect colour-correction, hydration, UVA/UVB sun protection in a lightweight formula that doesn’t feel heavy or appear cakey. It literally feels like you aren’t wearing makeup; except for the fact that any flaws that you might have, such as uneven skin tone, age or sun spots, dull skin–appear gone because of special optics in the formula. Yay!
The Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is available in six shades. The shade that was right for me is Light-Medium. I achieved the best result by applying with the sponge, then buffing in with a brush. There is a sponge for application in the compact;You can build coverage to a level that’s right for you. The staying power is excellent, too.
Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact Hydrating Colour Corrector Broad Spectrum SPF 25 ($35) is available now in department stores including Nordstrom, Sephora and at Clinique.com. Are you a fan of compact makeup? Let me know in the comments!
