Review | Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

Hello, readers and bloggers! It’s near the end of my week after Spring Break and I’m already holding up the load of photo projects and assignments. I can still do the assignments on time, but sometimes it can be too much and I escape to the world of dreams to pass time (for those who don’t know, that means I hit the sack for 2-3 hours of peaceful unconsciousness).

Ah well. Life doesn’t always make it easy for you. Anyway, before I start rambling again about different subjects at a time, let me get back to why I’m here.

I have another review for you, of course! This one will be on a product from the famous Bare Minerals brand!

This is the recently new Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream! It can be found at Sephora for about $29 plus tax and it comes with a matching brush to help with the application. I haven’t been to Ulta Beauty, so I don’t know if it’s in stock there.


I picked this stuff up after a commercial advertising the product showed up on TV one day. I was still using the Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer, but the commercial made this tinted cream interesting.

So I did my research, discovered most of the reviews were positive, determined what shade would blend perfectly with my skin and saved up my money to get this.

As of now, I”m using the darkest shade available (at least I think it is the darkest one): Sienna. After a while, I also bought the matching brush so I could apply the cream easier.

To be brutally honest, this stuff is EXACTLY what I wanted in a tinted moisturizer!!

With two tiny, pea sized drops for each section of my face (T-Zone, left cheek, right cheek), it covers nearly flawlessly and it DOES NOT feel like I’m applying a thick foundation makeup. It feels like I’m applying another facial moisturizer on my skin!

Since my skin is somewhat even enough, I don’t need a lot of it. Just a thin layer is good enough. The only issue I have with this (considering that I’ve praised it already. . .) is that I wish it didn’t give me such a dewy expression.

Before you start to protest, let me explain. I’m a fan of the matte look. The kind of look that over time, it doesn’t make my face look like I had been sweating after a long workout and looks completely natural without any suspicion that you’re wearing something on your face. This stuff is great, but if I add too much of it, by the end of the day I look like a grease ball.

Add on to that my oily skin and the rising hot temperatures in Florida during the Spring season and you could imagine my problem with the dewy look.

In short, I love this and the product will probably end my search for the perfect tinted moisturizer, but during the Spring and Summer seasons, I apply this sparingly with my fingertips and then use the brush to smooth it all over. Sometimes I just go out without using it and bare my face out for everyone to see.

But that’s my take on it. This is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone who can afford it!

Until next time everyone!

  1. this looks great! I’m going to go check it out πŸ™‚
    I’ve only been blogging for about a month! it’d be great if you could check my blog out and give me pointers:)


    1. Please do! Make sure you figure out what shade works for you and if you can, try the brush to see if you prefer applying with brush, with fingers or both.


    2. Your blog looks good so far! I recommend encouraging people to post their thoughts and opinions on the products you mention in your posts. This might help you connect with more people. Also, try not to use abbreviations as titles of posts. Some people may not know what they mean, so I recommend stating the title of your post clearly so it says the main topic of what you want to say.


    1. It does. It’s alright for me, but I prefer the matte look. It makes my face look neutral and even all over. The dewy look is fine, but don’t overdo it or you’ll look greasy.
