Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream

IMG_0389

I do not like foundation. At all. I often find it to be heavy, and not really appeasing on my face; I'll only wear it for those days when I really need to look good. That's why when I want some coverage, I want something light, fresh, and it doesn't hurt if it has an SPF (I'm all about the SPF). The Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream fits the bill like no other.cliniquecc I wear the shade "Very Light" because I'm very fair, and would like to think I have porcelain skin. In the summer I usually wear the shade "Light" since I'll have a bit of a "tan" (not really). Its an all season, all purpose kind of base makeup.

I love this CC Cream because it's light, gives your skin a dewy finish without being greasy, and overall does cover what you need covering. It also does a great job of keeping your skin moisturized. Not to mention it boasts a SPF 30. The CC Cream creates a perfect light base for the rest of your makeup. Also, it goes on so nicely with just your fingers. No brushes required. It is so quick and easy to use, and you don't need to spend time on blending and making sure you look "natural".

Now it is on the more pricier side of the spectrum retailing at $39.99, but it does last ages. I had one for about a year and a half, and I would use it quite often. Clinique is a great brand that caters to most skin types as it also works for sensitive skin like my own. Next time you're looking for a lighter foundation alterantive, especially with Spring here, try this one out. Let me know what you think in the comments below of this CC Cream or any CC Cream you've tried.

Removing the Unremovable

Today's post is about removing EYE MAKEUP. I'm not sure if anyone else has battles with eye makeup, but I certainly do. Maybe it's because I don't wear makeup that often so when I do I feel that removing it is such a chore. But not anymore! You can use Vaseline to remove eye makeup, because as I have said before, it does perform miracles. But for those of you who like the traditional formula to get it done, this is for you...

Last year I received a small (like a sample) bottle of Lancome's Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover. I thought it was great since it did work. The only problem was that it left my eyes with still mascara underneath, and took a lot of work to get it off (eyelashes were being tugged out). The other thing was that it was supposed to be oil-free, and well, it left my eyes feeling pretty oily.

This week, I found Neutrogena's Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover. It works like a charm, really though! It's not oily at all, there's no fight in getting off mascara, and my eyelashes are left in tact. Also, it only cost $8.27. Is that a bargain or what?!

These are only my opinions, but when you're on a budget, cheaper is better. But when you're on a budget and you still have standards, use the Neutrogena eye makeup remover. Sometimes the high end brand isn't always better. Image
