Is new Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint as fun as…sliding down the Summit Plummet at Disney’s Blizzard Beach or hiking to Wailua Falls on Kauai and frolicking in the secluded pool?
Hmm…maybe! It’s fun if your idea of fun is having your foundation look completely natural.
If I saw a friend, and he/she was wearing this foundation, I don’t know if I’d be able to tell. I’d just admire how even-toned and dewy his/her skin looked. Then I’d ask their secret!
Hydro Boost is an oil-free tint/foundation with hydrating hyaluronic acid to plump skin for up to 24 hours, but ya know…the texture is the real special sauce. It’s fluffy, mousse-like and incredibly easy to blend. When I use the over-sized doe-foot applicator to dot it on my face, then blend it in with my fingers, it glides and creates a thin, even layer, which is then undetectable, even on my cray-cray dry skin.
Essentially, it’s a lightweight medium-coverage tinted moisturizer with the slightest of slight dewy finishes (there’s no pearl, though). You can build the coverage up to medium, but even then, it still looks natural.
Like right now, I have a dark spot on my chin from a pimple that dried out a while back, and when I wear my shade, Honey, the spot isn’t completely hidden, but it’s less visible.
Same goes for the uneven areas on my cheeks. Hydro Boost evens out the darker and lighter areas so that my skin looks uniform, but it doesn’t look overly uniform… You can still see my freckles and whatnot.
It also blurs my pores ever so slightly, layers well under powder, and stays intact without going patchy as the day turns to night.
Honestly, I can’t believe this is drugstore! It performs like a premium foundation — like something from YSL or Guerlain. It’s just so good, so yeah! Get thee a bottle, and one for your BFF, because sharing is caring.
For $14.99, it’s pricey for drugstore, but overall I think it’s a bargain, and you won’t have to sell your first born (which in my case would be my cat). There are 10 shades, and you can find them all now at drugstores and online.
Happy Friday, my friend! 🙂 Here’s a rose for you…
When I think of red roses, I usually think of deep, almost garnet red roses, which I do like…but, to be honest, they don’t set my world on fire.
This year for Valentine’s Day, El Hub found these lovely lipstick red roses, and I just about died! The variety is called (wait for it…) Foxy Lady! — and they’re a bright, bluish red, like somebody took a tube of MAC Russian Red Lipstick, melted it down and poured it on a dozen roses.
Foxy Lady, LOL! 🙂
