Even though it is summer, the weather tells me differently. I am currently using quite a bit of my free time reorganizing and cleaning the apartment. I never got to do a proper spring cleaning so it now turned out a summer cleaning.
Part of the cleaning process was also getting my make up storage in order. I threw some stuff out, which had to go due to just being too old and I packed a few things away my sister and friends might like.
When it came to foundations, BB creams and tinted moisturizers I figured out that I am left over with 6 products – there of are two of each category. I thought it would be neat to actually show you, which they are and how they work for me. So over the last two days I have been taking pictures of my “getting ready process” for you and will share my information and experiences with my two tinted moisturizers with you.
1. Laura Mercier SPF 20 – Oil Free
The Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer is my favorite as it gives me the most natural look afterwards without feeling heavy on my skin. You can slightly tell that the effect is has is also slightly mattifying and I would not necessarily need powder on top (but use it on days where I am gone all day). I also noticed that it is easier to apply any kind of blush afterwards (compared to other products).
The product is available online under www.lauramercier.com or in several stores all over the world (though the homepage seems not up-to-date as the Hamburg counter within the Alsterhaus is for example missing).
2. Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15
After I accepted that the tinted moisturizer from Clinique is actually close to a foundation I finally started to like it. Unfortunately it leaves your face quite shiny so you definitely need to apply powder on top. You can see that it actually covers quite good (except of that pimple on the right side of my face) as I had a bit of rash around my mouth that morning.
The products are available over www.clinique.de or in drugstores all over the place. I like that I never had problems with Clinique especially considering my allergies etc.
