bareMinerals Complexion Rescue ($29; sephora.com) is a hydrating tinted complexion perfecter that comes with an SPF of 30. Complexion Rescue comes in ten shades, I tried out Ginger which is a great match for my skin tone. bareMinerals has also launched a Smoothing Face Brush ($28; sphora.com), which is a soft, duo fibre synthetic blending brush to go with the Complexion Rescue.
Complexion Rescue is very hydrating and has good coverage for something so lightweight. I prefer using my fingers for the most part and the brush only as the final step to blend everything together if needed. The Smoothing Face Brush is nice, could be a little more dense, but does the job well without too much product wastage. Since Complexion Rescue has medium coverage, I would still recommend a good concealer or corrector for dark circles and blemishes, but I am really happy with the way it makes my skin look. It instantly plumps up skin, hydrates really well, retains moisture and evens things out nicely. It does have a little bit of a color adapting capability too, so a shade light or darker would still look natural. The overall finish is quite dewy, which I love, especially this time of the year since my skin is always dry and everything ends up looking matte. It also makes my skin look well rested and healthy. My preferred way of using it has been with my fingers, a good concealer for under the eyes and finishing it off with a good finishing powder like the Guerlain Meteorites. Overall, I absolutely love it and you will love it too, if your skin leans on the drier side. Because of how light it feels, I can also see myself using it a lot more in the warmer months, but maybe with a dusting of loose powder on top.
