Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50

In time for warmer weather  and Summer comes new Clinique's new City Block BB Cushion Compact .

This is a BB but has more coverage than many BBs I use but less than a full foundation.  Clinique calls it a fluid foundation. It's sheer, light and feels weightless on with light to medium buildable  coverage. It's more than barely there but not quite all the way to medium. Your skin shows through but is perfected some, smoothed and it gives a semi matte finish that is lightly hydrating.

I love the feel of this. It goes on with a cool touch and blends right in. For days when I want lighter coverage it's great on it's own , but I also top it off with a mineral powder or stick foundation for more coverage . They mix well and give me almost full coverage.  The SPF of 50 is great too,  and a nod to the brand's long popular City Block Face Protector but with a higher SPF. It did well at oil control so far ( it said to be both sweat and humidity resistant). The best test will be when the heat really sets in but overall I think it will hold up.

We'll call this new release a win-win.  It has a lot going for it and the portability of the compact for all our Summer fun makes it even better.

I did not get an ingredient list but Clinique does say it has antioxidants along with physical SPF.

Clinique Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50 is $ 35 and will be available later this month. Shade shown is 01 Fair which goes on a bit lighter than the compact would have you think.
