Me and my impulse shopping. A devotee of Laura Mercier's and Smashbox's TM, I strayed from the path on a recent trip to Sweden and bought this. First off, I would like to say that this should be classified as a light foundation, rather than as a TM. Used alone, I'm finding this chalky and hard to blend, save for with a vigorously used damp sponge. Mixed with a luminizer/highlighter, however, the case is different. One gets a pleasing sheer look, Right now, I'm using Hocus Focus by Soap and Glory. It thins the goo out and helps neutralize the smell of this TM which is GHASTLY. Tempera paint, anyone? I'm going to finish the tube off, in the same of economy and ecology, but I don't think I'll buy this again.
This is the first tinted moisturizer I've used. I'm not going to buy it again, just because I would like to try out some others. I don't like to wear foundation everyday and I love MAC products so I thought why not try a tinted moisturizer from MAC. My skin is pretty even so I don't need a lot of coverage. When I applied it for the first time the first thing that I thought was: "I hate this smell..". And I still do. I can't explain what it reminds me of.. I like to coverage of this tinted moisturizer and it stays on all day with my Superbalanced Powder from Clinique. I found that it applies more natural when I'm using my fingers. You should definitly try this if you don't like to wear foundation on the daytime but you feel like having a little more coverage than just a regular moisturizer. Oh my skin also feels so soft after putting this on!
This is my favorite light-coverage foundation, it looks like I'm not wearing any makeup. Great to wear all year, especially in the summer when you don't want a heavy look. I use "Dark" for my Asian skin, which is not very dark but sheer enough that it matches well with my skin. I've recently purchased the Studio Sculpt for extra coverage since my skin doesn't look that great in the winter, and though it makes my skin look really good and very moisturized, I can't get over the feeling that it really looks like I'm wearing foundation and sometimes I feel too made up. I'll keep it... but the Moisture Tint is still my favorite.
I only started wearing "covering" makeup about a year ago. (I'm 20.) I have some light acne scarring and some milia on my chin, but I really don't care about covering that up -- I just like the brightening and evening out a tinted moisturizer provides. I don't like anything that feels heavy. So, there's that.
But I LOVE this TM. I purchased it in Light. It is perfectly sheer for me, and actually does cover those acne scars to my liking. I do put an oil-free moisturizer on first (Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion) then after blending it with my fingers, I buff it around my face and the finish is exactly what I want. I experience no dryness or awkward tint, and it also doesn't smell strongly of sunscreen.
It might be worth it to mention that I have very light olive skin -- a little different than just straight-up china doll pale. I don't know how this Light would work on pinker skin tones -- but, I'd definitely say hit up your MAC counter to try it out.
This is a light foundation. I have some scarring and feel more comfortable with the Studio Fix foundation. Since my skin is oily, I use the Studio Fix powder over it anyway, which adds a little coverage. I like the SPF. I don't think I would buy this again, since I think there are other options out there for tinted moisturizers.
I love this product.
I hate the feel of foundation on my skin and because my skin is, for the most part, problem-free, I went on a search for a great tinted moisturizer. I found MAC's Studio Moisture Tint and was very happy to have found it.
It feels lightweight and airy, yet provides just enough coverage to even out your skin tone beautifully. Leaves skin radiant and dewy.
I will definitely be buying this again when I run out.
My new HG foundation for work! I was using Studio Fix fluid and found it to be too heavy for everyday wear, so the MAC makeup artist recommended this. It provides a light coverage, which is all I need. It really has a lightweight feel to it. My face is lighter than my neck, and the Studio Tint blends everything in beautifully. As a guide, I am a Medium in the Studio Tint and a NW22/NW25 in the Studio Fix range. Overall, it gives a very natural, 'barely there' look, which is just what I wanted.
Do not buy this product expecting a heavy coverage or to cover blemishes/acne! This is one of MAC's lightest foundations. Take a look at the Studio Fix range if you want something that's going to properly cover blemishes. While the Studio Tint is buildable, it's certainly not as strong as the Studio Fix fluid. However, if you're looking for a foundation that provides a light to medium coverage for everyday use, this is amazing.
I have a pretty even skin tone, and was looking for something that would add just the right amount of pigmentation and moisture to the face for a flawless finish. This product evens out my skin and adds a good amount of moisture. During winter, I use another moisturizer on my face before using this, since my skin gets really dry during those months. I usually use a setting powder over this. I am on my third tube of this product and use this for my everyday makeup.
I quite like this "foundation" it blends with any brush, and its very creamy! but i find it dosent stay on very long, when i touch my face, it comes off! but i do like that its light and i mix it with my studio fix fluid to make it lighter, and it works great!
I have normal to dry skin. I like this product because it blends to a natural finish. It provides a light coverage so it evens out some of my redness around my nose and somewhat covers my under eye circles. However, it does not do anything for my hyper pigmentation on my cheeks. Overall, though I think it's a good product, because it looks natural on my skin and it's hydrating. However, be aware that it will leave a shiny finish b/c it has SPF in the product. However, I deal with that by using the Mac Prep + Prime finishing powder to "set" the foundation after I've applied it and that takes care of the shine problem.
