i love love love natural collection products, but this is not for me!
to be honest, i am not a massive fan of liquid foundations or tinted moisturizers because i find they sit on my skin and clog up in certain areas of my face, like my nose and chin, making me look flaky.
after using this on my face i found it did exactly what i hate about liquid foundations..it made me look flaky and dry! i know this is a tinted moisturisor (so im not expecting a great amount of coverage) but there was nothing to it. very sheer and i found it left little to no colour. i used the lightest shade as i have fair skin.
this is a very cheap and cheerful product, but it did absolutely nothing for my skin in terms of moisture or colour. i much prefer wearing mineral powder foundation!
I prefer to wear tinted moisturiser as appose to foundation because tinted moisturiser it gives a light coverage while making your skin feel super soft. My friend told me about the Natural Collection and said they do really cheap but amazing products. The tinted moisturiser comes in a clear little bottle which is really simple looking. I realised that there were only a few shades (about 4) to choose from and as I have quite fair skin, I got the Fair colour. The application is really creamy and doesn't feel thick at all however, it does NOT have any coverage, not even a light coverage. I ended up using more concealer to hide my red patches on my skin, rather than the tinted moisturiser. To be honest, you get what you paid for. The product is very cheap so obviously the product itself is going to be poor. Even the colour Fair (which is the lightest colour they do) is about 3 shades darker than my natural skin tone and it doesn't blend very well. It is quite a poor tinted moisturiser and it's probably just going to sit in my makeup bag and not get used. Overall, this product is OK for people who have NO imperfections or redness and just want to add colour to their face. I would recommend not to buy this product and to not be fooled by its cheap price. I would be willing to pay the extra few pounds for a tinted moisturiser that had light coverage and matched my skin tone.
This is the first TM I brought, as I wanted to stop wearing foundation for a while, yet still have light coverage. I found the coverage to be very much 'barely there' which was a little disappointing, but with concealor it doesn't look too bad.
Sometimes it comes out streaky for me which is irritating, but generally its an ok product, it does somewhat smooth out your complexion and its a 40ml tube for £1.99 so the value is awesome.
But I'm going to be getting back into the world of foundations as I need a more medium coverage base.
Overall, this product is good. Really smooth on your skin and looks nice too!
For me, the only downside is that when I squeeze it out, far too much comes out, so it ends up drying up all over the lid!
Plus, there isn't a great deal of shades to choose from. Only about 3, which is annoying as none of them perfectly fit my skin tone!
Overall it is a good product and I would buy it again:)
This is the first real product I've used as any sort of sheer foundation, other people in my family use it and it's a great inexpensive product to use. I bought the 'Natural' shade, the lightest I could find for my light complexion, perfect for the summer.
I got this as emergency make up to leave at my boyfriend's house, and was so pleased with it I went out and bought another for everyday use. This is very easy and simply to apply, which is a godsend in the morning, and just adds a little colour, to take the winter pallor away. I apply an oil free moisturiser, let that sink in, then put a small amount of this on top followed by a dusting of powder. It lasts all day and keeps me even. Very impressed!
this is a fantastic product which i have no regrets for buying. the price is better than reasonable and i was expecting the product to not be that good but i was pleasantly surprised, i will be wearing this A LOT for the summer, it is so light and perfect.
the coverage obviously isn't the best but as i expected from a tinted moisturiser this price, i myself don't have very bad skin but a few blemishes, if you feel quite conscious about this then a bit of tinted moisturiser would work perfect.
the consistency is quite thick and a small amount goes a long way, it actually reminds me more of a moisturiser consistency.
packaging is simple and okay, you can see product left etc which is great!
buy again? yes!
This was the first foundation i ever had brought and i didn't even realise it was a tinted moisturizer. So i didn't know a lot of things about foundations; i didn't know what kind of coverage i liked or what colour would suit me best or that some foundations are great and so are crap. Any way i got the lightest colour (i don't know what colour it is because the label came off) and back then i though getting the lightest was weird because i didn't realise how pale my skin is. But the colour looks yellow toned (warm) but however when you squeeze it out it look more pinky. Also it is a bit to dark :(. The constancy is very runny and gloopy but at the same time it is thick... weird. And it goes on really patchy and flakey and streaky. The colour when blended in is really muddy not a colour you would like on your face. It is really hard to work with and eventually i just give up. For a tinted moisturizer it has more coverage than most. The packaging is ok it's not that good but nothing that bad to it. The reason a lot of people buy this is because it is cheap and you do get 40ml. I just don't think it is worth buying even though it is only £1.99. If you want a good tinted moisturizer don't get this. If you want a good drugstore tinted moisturize look into the Topshop skin tint or the no7 triple protection.
I am so not impressed by this product. I bought it in the lightest shade for something really cheap like £2 in boots. It didn't have very much coverage, although I never really expect that of TM's. However, it did leave my skin looking really orange and unnatural (my foundation looks more natural than this!). I found it really hard to blend because it was really gloopy and just slid everywhere. You have to be really careful about blending just to make sure that you're face is actually even, as my friend pointed out that it had settled above my jaw line so I had a half orange/half white face.
As if that wasn't bad enough I woke up the morning after using this with spots all over my face. I am not acne-prone and I can't remember the last time I had a big break out like this.
I am throwing this in the bin, Natural Collections I hope you do better than this in the future!
The packaging was nice, and liked how you coloud see how much product you had left but,
the actual product was disappointing, tm is supposed to give you a glow, but this was just like normal moisturiser with a tad of orange, and I mean orange on my NC15 skin, and I got it in the lightest shade.
