I Think I Found It - The Ultimate Tinted Moisturizer from CHANEL.

I have been obsessed with finding a new tinted moisturizer for this Summer. Not that I am totally un-happy with DuWop Revolotion Face (my tinted moisturizer fave for last year), it is just that it is almost sometimes too thick.

After trying a few new ones already this year, I think I can officially claim my favorite as this: CHANEL HYDRAMAX + ACTIVE TEINTÉ Active Moisture Tinted Lotion SPF 15.

I love the light, non-greasy formula. This product is easily applied with my fingertips or a sponge for a bit blending - making it a fast alternative to foundation. It also delivers the right amount of hydration for my dry skin, with sun protection and the perfect of coverage to give my complexion a finished glow. Just the perfect blend of everything.

With my faux-tan, Sand is my perfect shade. Shade is the medium shade with two others shades, Bronzelit and Sunlit available as well. $55 seems to be a bit much, but thinking of it as not just a makeup product and a CHANEL Precision Skincare moisturizer where no other daytime moisturizer is needed, then it is very well worth it.

Active Moisture Tinted Lotion is available at specialty stores and CHANEL.com.

Allure 2008 Readers' Choice Awards.

This months issue of Allure magazine reveals their 2008 Readers' Choice Awards for their best in beauty. Each product category had a winner in both the drugstore/mass merchandiser market and the department/specialty store market. Not only was the brand and product given a win, but the exact color is named as well.

It is funny to see that so many people are devoted to such products like NARS Blush in Orgasm or MAC's Eyeshadow in Shroom. If I am not mistaken, these have been on the list before and continue to be on many of the different beat in beauty lists.

Check out the slideshow and let me know if you agree/disagree with any of the winners.
