Seems average. Not a good choice to use alone for coverage. On top of a little concealer is a nice day look for good skin.
i am not into tinted moisturizers in general, but the following cons are mostly pointed at this product in particular
1. they don't stay very well on me
2. they get oily on me. fast.
3. they look somewhat... nonexistent when i put them on, like it has no coverage
4. the color selection is poor, which isn't too bad, since its so sheer, but the undertones look weird on me (im asian)
5. i can just make my own.
u can say im biased, which i am, but this simply did not work for me. it would probably work for people with dryer skin and less imperfections tho
This makes my skin look radiant and smooth. Since this product came out, I've seen rave after rave about it, but, even though I am hooked on many Philosophy products, the word "moisturizer" in the name scared me away. I've been on a quest for "tinted" products to even-out my skin tone, mute discolorations, and keep my skin from looking dull, without the sun exposure it loves so much. Most of the tinted moisturizers I tried were bombs for my oily skin and/or provided lousy coverage, and.or caused breakouts and irritation. I'm not going to exaggerate and pretend HIATM controls oil, because it doesn't. However, for a "moisturizer", it has a remarkably matte finish, and it really doesn't seem to add more oil to my face. A little moisture during the hot Arizona summer can't hurt. I wear Medium-Tan, which appears orange for about two seconds, and then it blends beautifully and looks shockingly natural, yet "air-brushed". I LOVE this color. The peachy undertones are fantastic for blending in discoloration, so while others may not like "orange" I hunt for peach/apricot concealers. This works for color correction and brightening. I think this product is perfect for easy daytime wear when I know I'll be indoors a lot or have only incidental sun exposure. I like the coverage of Hope In A Tinted Moisturizer so much, on days spent outdoors I've been wearing this over higher SPF, and, if needed, I use The Present as a buffer in between. This is lovely for a natural, healthy, smooth look. This has a much lighter texture and feel than BB Creams.
Another Philosophy product that didn't work for me. There is almost no coverage. I have dry skin, but this made my face shine like a disco ball. Just not for me.
This is OK, does the job and has nice coverage but nothing to rave about. I think it might be a little expensive for what you get, the packaging is not that great -I often get more product than I intended to get. It smells great, so that's a plus, but overall I would probably not repurchase .
This would work for those with normal or dry skin but I have combo/oily skin and this makes me shine like no other. Decent coverage and colors, but boy howdy does this make me look like a greaseball
I got very tanned this summer and all my foundation at home are too light for me. I thought I'd get something darker and not too heavy mainly for the summr. This tinted moisturizer turned out to be perfect for that. I got the tan colour and it matches my skin very well. It's not very light and obviously not for those who want heavy coverage. I wear it on its own or mix it with my other foundation. I also like the pump bottle. It's easy to use and no mess. It evens out my skin tone and covers some blemishes reasonably well (as a tinted moisturizer). This is the first philosophy product I've bought and no disappointments. I may try their other products in the future.
I bought two- one in light and one in extra light- (the one closest to my skin color). I really like these. They provide a little coverage, but the main thing I love is the glow I get. These are very moisturizing to me and so I use blotting papers during the day. That's the one negative I have when using a non-powder product. As I said before, the glow is amazing. I look sun-kissed and more even toned. On top of that, I need less concealer.
I loved this at first. Loved the coverage. However, after a few weeks, I began to notice how greasy my skin was looking halfway through the day (and I have dry skin, so that is highly unusual).
I switched to another brand of TM and got a nice matte finish that lasted way longer. There is nothing wrong with this TM I guess, just not right for me.
I usually use Murad Sheer Tint with SPF 15, which is actually not marketed as a tinted moisturizer but does a wonderful job moisturizing my skin while giving me a bronzed glow and spf protection. I decided to try the Philosophy tinted moisturizer because the spf is a little higher. My take on it is that it feels nice on my oily skin and smells okay. It is cosmetically elegant in application, but once on, you must quickly distribute the product as it tends to sit in place. A few times, I left the house only to later find yellow streaks on my skin - embarassing! It doesn't blend very well. Also, if you have oily eyelids or mistakenly rub your eyes, this will BURN! I like this product enough to finish what I have, but since I have to be careful with application and my eyes, I will not buy it again. With Murad Sheer Tint, I never felt any irritation if the product got near my eyes and it just absorbed into my skin perfectly, no streaks or line of demarcation ever. I'll happily go back to Murad.
Update: I took off a lippie because this really breaks me out!
