My thoughts on CLINIQUE MOISTURE SURGE CC CREAM
Initially when I received it 2 years back I really loved it because this was the first ever foundation cum cc cream to go on my face. I was never a bb or cc person before that. I loved the finish and how beautifully it covered my blemishes and made my face look glowing. I never used to put primer back then so maybe that was the reason why it never stayed put for long but do we really have to use a primer before a bb or a cc cream? Isn’t it supposed to be the only product that goes on your face with all the benefits of a foundation and a primer?
Anyways I would recommend it to people with nothing much to hide as such who already have a gorgeous skin and just need a bit of extra coverage to even out the complexion. On days when I had serious blemish situation going on it didn’t do much to cover them. I used it for good 4 to 5 months but then I shifted to so much more.
One day it was lying down in my vanity and caught my attention all over again. I used it the following day but it was just a huge miss as it did not have any coverage left and it was all greasy and weird. Maybe it has expired or maybe I have grown up and evolved over a period of 2 years. Not too sure what changed! All I know is that I do not recommend splurging on it because it is super expensive and doesn’t offer much. I was never too impressed to be honest from day 1 considering the price especially.
PS: Men can use it with a bit of moisturizer mixed in it to even out the complexion because it has natural coverage on its own and mixed with a moisturizer it becomes a perfect concoction to go on a male’s face without being detectable.
