Beauty Find - Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Compact

Not only are CC Creams not "over" - there are brands, like Clinique, that are actually creating new versions of them, for a wider variety of skin care needs.

CLINIQUE Moisture Surge CC Compact is perfect for the woman with drier skin, who's on the go.  This compact is very simple and well designed.  The compact is thin, and fairly long, but still fit in the palm of my hand.  The sponge and cream are on the same level of the compact, along with a mirror at the top, which makes this ideal for quick touch ups, or just getting out of the house quickly in the morning.

The CC Cream itself was creamy, light and smooth and easy to apply, with no pulling or tugging on my skin, both with the enclosed makeup sponge, as well as a beauty blender/foundation brush.  I used the shade Deep  (shown, above) with very good results.  I did apply a moisturizing serum before hand, and if you have very dry skin I would recommend using your normal moisturizer as well.  However, if you're more on the combination side, you can actually just use the CC Cream and you'll have enough moisture.

This formula gave me the moisture I needed in my drier areas, along with a very nice, natural satin matte finish that I loved. It felt so lightweight there was no heavy make up feeling at all. The product set almost immediately after applying it and did not smudge, fade or flake during the day. While this does offer medium coverage (I didn't personally need concealer when I used it) and some color correction, it can also be used with concealer if you need additional coverage for very dark circles, for example.  

Another bonus - it also has SPF!  This is really a perfect 1-stop-shop for quickly pulling together a polished complexion effortlessly. - RLB
