Few months ago, I attended an event organised by Sephora. It was the first time I had the opportunity to participate at this kind of event, and I must say I had a great time ! I had to choose between different animations and so I could try the new bareMinerals Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating gel cream. I no longer use tinted cream since I discovered Miracle Air de teint a fluid foundation by Lancôme which is my favorite product in any season. However, as I found this product interesting, I decided to buy it and try it during summer, because this kind of product is perfect for hot weather.
La crème teintée Complexion Rescue a été créée avec l'idée de réunir "le meilleur d'une BB, d'une CC et d'une crème teintée" en un seul produit (ce qui explique probablement sa désignation à rallonge de "crème gel hydratante teintée"...)
Complexion Rescue tinted cream has been created with the idea to gather the best of a BB, a CC, and a tinted moisturizer in one product (which probably explains such a long name !) I use neither BB nor CC cream, I like neither their coverage nor hydratation they provide. On the contrary, I have used for a long time a Lancôme tinted cream which I liked a lot, especially during summer. That's why I was doubtful when I heard about this product, not knowing which side would win... And finally, it was a nice surprise !
In terms of texture, Complexion Rescue tinted cream looks like a moisturizer, somewhat thicker. It's easy to apply and it does'nt leave a kind of greasy film on the skin. Once applied, the creamy side disappears leaving only the coverage with a nice glow.
It has is sheer to medium coverage. So, once applied, few imperfections are still visible but in an attenuated way. In this case, you will only need a little bit of concealer to make them disappear. As I have a very sensitive and dry skin, it is often irritated with redness. This cream provide enough coverage to make those redness disappear in a very natural and subtle way. In order to increase coverage, you can build the product by applying a second layer. However, it's not possible to get this kind of perfect coverage that you can have with a classical foundation when you use a tinted cream.
You don't have to fix this product with powder but I do, because it increases its durability and coverage. According to me, using this tinted cream without fixing it with powder make it lighter as the day. When you use sheer loose powder, it fixes the product and you still have a nice coverage at the end of the day without doing retouch. Sometimes, I use pressed powder with light coverage on top of Complexion Rescue tinted cream as it provide more coverage. Take care when you use powder as you can loose the radiant effect of the tinted cream if you choose a matte finish powder, which would be so bad !
Après : une peau plus lisse, lumineuse, un côté radieux tout en restant naturel. Mes cernes n'ont pas disparu (même s'ils sont moins noirs) mais pour ça il me faut un excellent anti-cerne ou des vacances !
After : my skin has a smoother appearance, it is radiant and looks very natural. You can still see my dark circles but all I can do about it is having vacations or using an amazing concealer !
Par contre, pour sortir le soir ou pour les grandes occasions, je préfère utiliser un fond de teint avec une forte couvrance. Je n'utilise pas ce produit, même poudré, car son effet naturel contraste trop avec un maquillage vraiment soutenu ou travaillé.
I use Complexion Rescue tinted cream on a daily basis at the moment, especially when I am working since I want a natural result and need to go fast in the morning ! With a little bit of powder,
the result holds throughout the day and my skin seems less dry than when I use a foundation. I also like using it during the WE, when I stay home and want to have a little bit of a glow without wearing full make up.
Nevertheless, when I go out or for special occasions, I prefer using a foundation with high coverage.
Outre son côté léger parfait pour l'été, un autre atout de ce produit est d'avoir un indice de protection SPF 30 intégré. La plupart des produits de maquillage que vous trouverez dans le commerce sont en dessous, tournant autour d'un indice SPF 20/25. Je trouve ça vraiment bien à une époque où l'on a conscience des effets néfastes que représente le soleil pour la peau. Je ne sors pas systématiquement couverte de crème solaire des orteils aux oreilles, mais je trouve ça important de protéger mon visage autant que possible. J'aime ce côté 2 en 1 qui me permet de protéger ma peau tout en me maquillant ! Bien sûr si vous passez une journée à bronzer sur la plage ou que vous partez faire une randonnée, ce produit sera loin d'être suffisant (personnellement je sors l'indice 50^^), mais pour le quotidien c'est parfait.
Besides its ligth formula which is perfect for summer, another advantage of this Complexion Rescue tinted cream is that it features SPF 30 sun protection whereas most of make up products only feature SPF 20 or 25. It's a really good thing at a time when everyone is aware of the harmful effects of the sun for the skin. I like the fact that this 2 in 1 product allows me to protect my skin while doing my make up. Of course, if you spend a day at the beach or if you go iking, this product won't be sufficient, but it's perfect for everyday use.
