Clinique Moisture Sheer Tint

This is the latest product that I’ve been testing out in my ‘Big Tinted Moisturiser Hunt‘. Overall, I’ve been really surprised at how different all of the tinted moisturisers have turned out to be so far, and this one is no exception. It gave an even and professional finish that felt very ‘fixed in place’ – great for super-hot, sweaty days in the city!  It has an SPF15 built-in, which is always rather handy as an extra layer of protection – although (and I’ve said this before!) don’t rely solely on the SPF in your makeup, you’ll rarely apply enough for it to be effective.

I remember a makeup artist using the Moisture Sheer Tint on me a few years ago when I was modelling for quite a large high-street campaign. I was a bit taken aback, because mostly a makeup artist will use a full base on a model to ensure that the skin is absolutely flawless, but actually, this must have done the job perfectly, because I don’t remember her using anything else on top!

Have a look at the video – I think the effect is lovely, very ‘studio finish’!

    Hi there,

    I love your videos/blog posts!

    I was wondering whether you could recommend me a good concealer to use both on blemishes/undereye circles?

      My favourite is Estee Lauder double wear – it has great coverage and stays on all day! Benefit Boiing is also very good. I think it’s worrth paying a little extra for concealer – for me, it’s my most important product, and I don’t want it creasing or going dry!

    Just wanted to say a big thank you, Ruth. I’ve just got this after reading the post and it’s lovely. I hate my skin but it looks great with this on. The tinted moisturiser and mascara and I’m away! More time in bed!!
