New Tinted Moisturizers: Clinique and Clarins

I am sure that you already know that lip balm and lipstick hybrid  is huge for SS 2011. I’ve written a lot of posts about it and also had an article about it in the latest edition of the magazine.

But do you know what else is popular right now? Tinted Moisturizers!And I am actually really happy about both products as I am a fan.

Now you can get one from pretty much  every brand. Dior released  several (they are kind of TM) with their summer collection. Bobbi Brown brought one recently as well. And that is just to name a few!

And the latest editions to the world of Tinted Moisturizers are  Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer SPF 6.

I haven’t tried any so here is just what is promised by the brands.
