COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

I m torn about this product because it’s so difficult to work with! My skin has to be PERFEcTLY smooth and exfoliated for this to apply smoothly. Otherwise? It balls up wherever I have dry skin no matter how gently I apply. I won’t repurchase for this reason. I have tried a beauty blender and a couple different types of brushes besides using my fingers. There is no difference in the necessity of having perfectly exfoliated and moisturized skin under this product. The sunscreen is great. The texture and feel are fine. It’s comfortable and relatively long wearing everywhere but my nose, and nothing lasts on my nose. I just can’t deal with how this one attaches itself to ANY dry skin I might have and proceeds to ball up and lift the edges noticeably. Blech.

COMPLEXION RESCUE™ Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF 25

I am really impressed with this! I've been trying to find a great stick foundation for lazy days. I am N/D, cool/fair, with mild rosacea. I've color tested a lot and have a hard time finding a shade match pale and cool enough. This seems to check off all the boxes for me. First, it does feel cool on initial contact. I put it on my normal way over primer and blend/pat with a bb. I put on rest of makeup normal and set with Fix +. The texture is very moisturizing and does not drag on the skin. It sheers out and blends like a dream. My makeup stayed all day and looked amazing! My suggestion for redness is to do whole face and wait a little to gently pat more over red patches before setting. The lightest shade, Opal, is a perfect match. I could see this maybe not working for very oily skin.
