The Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream (1,950.00 Php) is a product that I knew I wanted from the very fist time I heard of it. CC creams in general were always of interest to me because of what they aim to do — colour correct. What does that mean exactly? Read on to find out!
I never had to worry about excess shine where it isn’t welcome on my face until recently, so I never delved into the world of “matte” cosmetics. I was always worried about hydrating my skin and keeping flaky skin at bay, not patting down a near-reflective forehead (lol it’s not that bad naman, but it was getting there). So you can imagine how lost I felt… I mean I have been posting about this a lot lately, so I will spare you the rant and get on to talking about the first blot/oil control powder I’ve ever tried: the Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder (1,500 Php for 7.6g). I did my research before buying this and it’s pretty well-rated from what I’ve gathered. It was #1 on my list of options because it was (1) available locally, (2) had a translucent shade option, and (3) is relatively reasonably priced. I also made sure that I went and got a pressed powder because I knew I would need to take it around for touch-ups.
