    Default Clinique Almost Make Up V Linda Sy Zinco

    I got some samples of the Lindasy Zinco, tinted and non tinted.

    One reason for the sunscreen element, and also to hide my redness really.

    On applying these,i have found that the redness is toned down when i mix the tinted and non tinted together, but on closer inspection it looks like you have a layer of muck on your face, like powdery crap. It also feels rather greasy...

    Therefore not sure if i should purchase a full priced tub of it.

    I believe another option is the Clinique Almost Make Up...Has anyone had success with this ? does it cover up perm redness and Flush ?

    I'm a male, and i dont really wanna wear make up, but if this is a good product i may invest...what does it feel like on your skin ?

    Default have you tried.............

    Have you tried Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer
    ADJUST is green-toned to reduce redness caused by rosacea or irritated skin. It is so sheer and might be appropriate for males.

    Or try their
    Photo Finish Color Correcting Foundation Primer

    Their products are so light weight and sheer I was thinking they would be good for men. I use them and love them. The negative is that they are a little pricy.

    I like the Zinco. I tends to be a little shiny, but if I use that first and put Linda's Acne Cover Lotion over that I can get a pretty nice result.

    The Almost Makeup and Smashbox combo is a great one. I plan on buying some more soon so I can get back to this combo. It really hides the redness well.

    Have moved to the topical section to keep the forum tidy.

    Here's the trick. Put the zinco on in the morning and let it settle for about 20 minutes. Then use a clean hand towel and pat your face. This will reduce the shine considerably. Works like a charm.

    Im a 32 year old male and have tried and currently use Almost Make-up. It works pretty well to tone down the redness. It also has an SPF of 15. Almost undetectable. The trick is to blot it with a tissue about ten minutes after applying. Hasnt broken my skin out either.

    Hoping not to have to do this the rest of my life, but for now it really helps me get by!

    Yes. I keep a clean white towel by my sink just for this. I pat the cheeks and then the nose and then I'm off. No more shine.
