Pros- Clinique=Nice light weight feel, SPF 15  Covergirl= Nice price SPF 15
Cons- Clinique= Pricey, comes in only 3 shades. Covergirl- A bit watery
Should you save or splurge on tinted moisturizer? I thought that Cliniques was very nice and light weight. The only thing that threw me off was the color selection, it only comes in 3 shades! The shades are Fair, Neutral and Beige. I purshased Fair (lightest color) which as you can see the picture is i'm not really fair. So any girls that have light skin tones then me could not get this. They also don't have any shades for darker skin tones. The shade selection really disapointed me. Covergirl's was a bit watery and did not apply as well as Clinique's. But atleast they had a few more shades than Clinique. (I am shade light to medium) They carry shades for light, medium and dark skin tones. The price is also amazing!

I would pick Clinique if one of the three colors matches your skin, annd you cann afford the hefty price.
If your skin doesn't match or you don't want to spend alot of $$$ then Aqua Smoothers will work.

Clinique- 9/10
Covergirl- 7/10


  1. Clinique all the way lovely! I give it 10/10
