With Spring well under way and Summer not too far off in the horizon, it's time to shelf the heavy moisturizers and foundations, all while being cognizant of the importance of SPF. Cover FX's Skintint Treatment and Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 ($42) is the perfect warm-weather makeup trifecta. Not only does it block away both UVA and UVB rays, but special lipid-captors help give skin suppleness, and hyaluronic filling spheres provide hydration. And thanks to its ultralight, ultrasheer coverage tint, the complexion is left with a beautiful sun-kissed glow. Available in six oil-, fragrance-, and paraben-free shades.
I know what the technophiles are thinking: flash mobs are sooooo mid-2000s. And while they kind of are, San Franciscans and New Yorkers have good reason to revisit the idea. During two upcoming flash mob events, Cover FX will be giving away free full-sized Conceal FX concealer in those cities. You'll have to look for camouflaged "troops" who'll dole out the goods. The usual caveats apply: first come, first served, and the concealers are available while supplies last. But if there's any reason to get behind a flash mob revival, this is a good one. Here are the details:
New York: March 24, 4 to 6 p.m. at Grand Central Station (near the tower clock inside the station)
San Francisco: March 29, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Union Square (near the Victoria Monument)
