I added this to my cart during my last E.L.F. order just to try it out. It's only the second tinted moisturizer I've ever tried. I haven't gotten to use it that much, but I will say that mine smells a little bit like black licorice! Wtf? I think the shade is honey or apricot or something.
Love this! To me, it is more like a light/medium coverage foundation. I set it with the Complexion Perfection powder, and it looks so natural and nice. Very good! The size is what you would excpect for a $1 product. I`m completely fine with the size b/c of the low price. Rosy Beige is the best match for me, Apricot Beige was far too orange. I`m going to try Light Beige also. Update: The coverage is exactly the same as my Lancome Teint Idole foundation. But with a much better colormatch!
i like it as a concealer since its so tiny you barely get any product
I am not a fan of tinted moisturizers AT ALL! Im more of a full coverage girl but i felt like i needed something to wear if all i as doing was running errands or going to the grocery store. So i thought id try this one since it was only three bucks. At first i was not a fan of it. I tried pairing it with different powders benefit (pressed) clinique (loose) milani (pressed) as well as a translucent from physicians formula and i just didnt care for any of it. I had pretty much given up on this and stuffed it in the back of my drawer. Well since then i have purchased the HD powder from elf as well. Wow you would think the hd powder was made for this moisturizer. It seriously changes my whole view on the tinted moisturizer. What im trying to say is if you use this moisturizer pair it with the hd powder and you will see the difference it gives a really nice smooth matte simple look. Definitley good for a summer day when you dont want to see your face melted off.
i havent used this enough to give a full on review. but the moment i put it on my face, i looked like a tomatoe. i got it in honey, which they call 'light' when really, its medium tone. but it had pink undertones which just wasnt for me since in a nc30/35. and i had a itchy face face after applying this product so i took it off staight away, and my forehead had little bumps and was itchy! not buying this again.
I have this in rosy beige.I love tinted moisturizer,but to me it's like a light foundation.I don't have a lot to cover up,but this evens out the redness and small imperfections I do have.I'm surprised that this is such a good product,I might have found my HG foundation,I like the squeesy tube.I will repurchase,I only wish they make normal sized tubes!if you're looking for light to medium coverage and a natural result,try this.The spf 15 is a big bonus,none of my max factor foundations got it.
I loved this foundation its perfect, great coverage! Nice colour! Cheap! Only bad point i could not believe how small the tube was!
Worst tinted moisturizer ever! I'm was so frustrated with this. I've seen their ad wherein they compared this to the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer so I thought I should buy it, considering that I've loved that one. Well, never trust ads, that's what I learned because the moment I stepped outside wearing this, it streaked and melted all over my face, leaving me with flesh-toned sweat! My white shirt literally had stains because of this product, it was so horrible. I gave it another try, but sadly I got the same horrible results after. Never buying this again.
I have this in light beige and rosy beige.I love this foundation,it's a tinted moisturizer,but to me it's like a light foundation.Both colors matches my skin tone,the rosy beige is best for summertime.I don't have a lot to cover up,but this evens out the redness and small imperfections,looking very natural.I use a light moisturizer under this,and powder on top,the lasting power is not so long,but it fades away evenly,and doesn't make dry flakes more prominent.I'm surprised that this is such a good product,I might have found my HG foundation,I'll wait and see if it breaks me out.I think the sugar orange smell is nice,and it disappers within seconds,I like the squeesy tube.I will repurchase,I only wish they make normal sized tubes!if you're looking for light to medium coverage and a natural result,try this.The spf 15 is a big bonus,none of my max factor foundations got it.
update:after using this daily for a week my face broke out,mostly my chin and forehead,I usually don't break out from makeup,my skin is a littly oily,so I don't recommand this for oily skin!Iit's weird because other here has said its nice for oily skin,even drying.. .Not my HG foundation after all
Perhaps I'm too spoiled but this seemed just ''ok'' to me. I like the fact they have such a wide range of shades, the lightest one (Ivory) was surprisingly too light for me to use in the summer (when I'm probably a NW20). Me being too dark for a foundation/tinted moisturizer has NEVER happened to me before.
It has a nice, quite thick consistency, decent coverage, but I don't think it's very moisturizing. It smells like sugar and oranges which I really don't like..I have dry skin and the last thing I want to do is put orange juice on it (which is what it feels like smelling the product on your skin..it's just uncomfortable). I love the fact it has SPF.
The packaging is horrible and really cheap looking but I can live with that. Will probably repurchase, doesn't hurt to have one in your make up collection just in case.
