That said the minute I saw the adverts for Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisture is appealed. I actually think its that big splash of aqua right in the middle of the ad that just makes me think of the comfort of hydrated skin!

I was in a grump on Saturday eve and nipped to Asda for a hair dye and a magazine, would have added chocolate but have you seen my backside?! Grabbed a copy of Glamour and had a flick, and there was a sachet of Moisture Surge TM glued between its pages, the perfect opportunity to try it!
I am loving it! The shade I got is 03 which is possibly a tad dark for my skin but because its sheer its not overly dark, if that makes sense (actually having looked on line am surprised that it appears that shade 01 and 02 are very pale and there is massive leap to shade 03, will have to check this out for real on Weds). I have huge pores on my chin which have a habit of trapping any powder that might be in my foundation, which looks ghastly. Because this is so sheer this powder filled pore thing isn't happening. And oddly in spite of being sheer enough to look really fresh I am getting sufficient coverage on my redness to be totally happy with it, even in broad daylight with a mirror pressed right up to my nose. Em said I looked "not oily, not sure what the right word is?" I filled the gap with "glowing" and she agreed! The wear on this is good, have added a bit more at lunch time just to keep things fresh. The best thing about it has been how comfortable my skin has been, you may have noticed a dearth of lunch time tweets where I am threatening to run my face over with an orbital sander, which was how I was feeling last week! I am off to the Trafford Centre on Wednesday so will try and make OH wait whilst I pick up a 5 day sample to really put it through its paces but so far so good. Second thing in as many months that I am loving from Clinique!

PS I am wearing this tinted moisturiser in the hair colour post here, if you want to see how it looks on the skin!
