Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50.

With summer right around the corner, it's the perfect time to check your base makeup product to see if it's offering you a sufficient amount of sun protection. Most dermatologists recommend that you wear broad spectrum sunscreen of 50 every day, year round. Clinique just expanded their range of their Super City Block line to include the brand new Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50. This new cushion compact BB not only delivers high SPF, it's a great multi-tasking formula that has buildable coverage and a really nice finish.

Clinique created a really breakthrough formula in Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50 when they developed this fluid makeup and put it into the cushion compact. The coverage is a liquid BB cream like no other as it's imbedded into the cushion sponge. It feels as light as air on the skin yet it provides longwearing coverage. The finish is natural matte that looks real. It offers light to medium coverage wise, but can be built up if desired.

As with all Super City Block formulas, the formula is made with rich antioxidants plus the high SPF so skin is shielded from environmental aggressors and protected from the sun all in one-step.

There are only four shades available, but they cover the spectrum pretty well and are very forgiving. Choose from Fair, Moderately Fair, Medium or Deep.

Super City Block BB Cushion Compact SPF 50 sells for $35 initially and the refills are $25.00. Buy it at Clinique counters in Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Dillard's or online at
