New Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer

I recently purchased the new formulated Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer.  After hearing the new released version, I immediately jumped into my bandwagon and to see what this is all about.  I heard that this new formulated tinted moisturizer is lighter and sheerer than the original tinted moisturizer.  In my previous post I indicated that the old version has a hint of orange undertone to it, which I wasn't to keen of.  However, the old version has a better coverage and smell to it minus the orange undertone and the packaging. 

I put the new formulated tinted moisturizer to the test.  I personally think the formulated tinted moisturizer runs a bit too sheer for my liking and not enough of coverage, also it has a medicine band aid smell to it.  I personally wish that they could combine the old formulated tinted moisturizer to the new version minus the orange undertone to it.  The only thing I like about this tinted moisturizer is that it contains SPF 15 sun protection and the new packaging.

Pros:
  • The shades run lighter and sheerer without the orange undertones in this moisturizer.
  • Packaging looks much nicer and neater.  
  • I like that it contain SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free.
Cons:
  • This moisturizer doesn't have a good coverage, which is too sheer for my liking.
  • Awful medicine band-aid smell.   
What it does:  (stated from Sephora site)
Ideal for normal to oily skin, this product offers a casual alternative to foundation. It provides light moisture, sun protection, and sheer, comfortable coverage.
    Currently retailing at Sephora for $40 dollars

    Estée Lauder - Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator


    I received this full size trial from Estée Lauder Eye Illuminator from a survey that I took.  I didn't realized that I was qualify for the free full size trial until I received this package at my doorstep.  I normally don't suffer badly from dark circles, because I actually get my full 8 hours of sleep.   But there are times that I don't sleep well, my dark circles appears to be heavier at some times.

    After using the Eye Illuminator it has helped me reduced my dark circles.  The eye illuminator helped my under eyes appear brighter and I felt like it has reduced the puffiness around my eyes and smoothing out my dark circles.  I also like the packaging, it has this unique ceramic tip on top of the applicator where you can massage your eyes with it.  I like the cooling & soothing sensation by rubbing the ceramic tip under my eyes. After each usage I got really addicted to using it cause of the ceramic applicator.  After applying this under my eyes it feels very refreshing.

    Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer


    In this post, I will be reviewing the Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer. I've been putting it on for a good use, when there are days I don't feel like wearing heavy foundation. I find this tinted moisturizer pretty hydrating as it stated, but without a good moisturizer it falls flat to me. You need to moisturize or prime your face before hand, otherwise wearing this foundation alone your face will look a bit dry.  Also I notice that this foundation has pink undertones, but it's not that noticeable once you blend the foundation out on your face.  I personally prefer pink undertones than orange undertones.  Since I'm a lighter shade the orange pops out more, leaving it more noticeable like the Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizer that I have tried several times.  The Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizer has a hint of orange undertones, making my face appear a bit orange.  For the Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizer, I normally use that on summer days.  During the summer time my shade appears a bit darker than the winter time, therefore I switch back and forth on my foundations. 

    What I like about the Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer:
    • It is Hydrating, as I stated that you need proper moisturizer before hand or a primer.
    • The foundation for this is lightweight. 
    • This tinted moisturizer isn't expensive, great for the price. 
    • I like the little bottle, and whenever I squeeze a small amount on the tip of the bottle, the bottle stays pretty clean. 
    Here is a comparison side to side swatches of the tinted moisturizer of the Clinique and Bobbi brown tinted moisturizer where you can see the pink and the orange undertones.  I personally think it's worth your time in checking this foundation out.  Also if you like to see how it looks in a pictures, please check this following post Spring Cherry Blossom Look using this foundation.
