I would repurchase this again if i couldn't find another tinted sunscreen + moisturizer that makes my face look nice and matte.
i used this all winter and i really liked it at first. i have very dry skin and therefore try to use moisturizing or dewy type foundations and it has always worked well on me. but on longer days, towards the end of the day i find my skin gets a little shiny and foundations/tinted moisturizers oxidize on me so i wanted a moisturizer with a matter formula. i guess my skin has been changing since highschool. i used to be able to characterize myself as dry and using liquid/moisturizing everything made me look so good. now i find oily/greasy face on some days but i still have a super flaky nose..sucks:( anyway i liked this at first but i found a few people had started asking me whether i tanned LOL and this is during the winter. so then i tried my foundation without it and found i looked less orange.
yes, i know maybe this is a tinted moisturizer so it is not meant to be used with a foundation exactly but a tinted moisturizer would never be enough coverage for my skin..especially with my dark circles, pigmentation etc..
i tried a few shades in this but to be honest there aren't very many shades to begin with and ALL of them made me look orangeish..not even towards the end of the day but right away!
the extra lippy i took off is due to the low spf of 15. i guess its ok for the winter but i`m trying to be more vigilant and smart about sunscreen usage. and some winter days here in toronto are pretty sunny even if it IS minus a gazzillion degrees.
but if you ARE looking for a lower spf tinted moisturizer that is matte then i say give it a try and just ask for a sample. i can see this making some peoples faces look very flawless with or without foundation.
I liked this tinted moisturiser, wouldn't rave about it being the best product ever but I liked it and it pretty much did what it was supposed to. It was a reasonable priced and went on fine. This is a pretty light coverage as you would expect and looked good on a summer day, not like you had a mask on/ridiculously made up. I bought this specifically for holiday for the SPF and to try and look reasonable while out in the hot sun. The SPF did a fair job, but I did end up a little burnt a couple of times - though pinky rather than lobster and peely!! I think I should have been reapplying this throughout the day to solve this. I did end up quite shiny, I'm never sure if you can blot/put powder over these and not affect the SPF?! Hmmm something to investigate I think...
This is better by miles than the Benefit You Rebel which is the only other tinted moisturiser that I've used. I would consider buying this again for deffo but plan to try the NARS one next, then Laura Mercier. Then I'll be buying the best out of these.
I love this! My skin looks flawless with this and it will definitely hide some hyper-pigmentations. It's best to use with a brush and finishing it with a mineral veil or powder so it looks natural and healthy! It stays on longer than i imagined and would look even more natural as hours went by. :) it does not cause breakouts or any reaction to my face.
I was so disappointed in this product. First of all, the color selection is very limited. I got the darkest color thinking it would match. When I looked at myself in the mirror the red undertone did not match me at all. People kept asking me if went tanning. Secondly it made me super oily. To the point where I had to blot my face several times during the day. understand it's a moisturizer, but i feel like it doesn't absorb properly into my skin. I literally looked like I rubbed grease all over my face....not attractive. I will be returning this product ASAP. I can definitely find better use for my $30.00.
I'm having mixed feelings about this product:
On one hand, I think it broke me out, as it had been a long time since I last had pimples (I get one every once in a while, but not two or three big ones at the same time), and this made my chin break out. It is true that it is not the only product I have started using this week, so I will update this if I see that this wasn't the problem. Another drawback is that it doen't moisturize at all, contrary to what you'd think by its name. It has a yellow undertone, which sometimes is a little bit annoying, but as I have fair skin, I can get away with it most of the time.
On the other hand, it gives the exact amount of coverage: really light, but can be built up a little bit if needed, which is perfect to give a quick and natural look.
I can not give a definitive opinion, as it is the first tinted moisturizer I have tried, but I think I will try another brand next time.
Love this product I have it in Deep Dark/ Dark Plus....Coverage isn't crazy, but it is amazing. I was always afraid of having too much coverage, and since I don't have much to had blemish wise it was a good option. I have dry skin, but I make sure to moisturize before, and the moisture in the tint works for me as well. I have gotten many compliments including when I visit the Mac counter. It looks like I'm wearing a little something, but not enough to think I have a face full of makeup on. It has enhanced my look for the better. In love <3 continued >>
I just got a sample of this yesterday at Nordies and fell back in love with this again! I used to love it but then I would get all flaky with it (I wasn't properly moisturized at the time) and blamed it on studio moisture tint.
I really like this. I use it and only built to light coverage and suprisingly when you build it up it doesn't cake! I have near perfects skin and this gives me a "fresh" look to my skin if that makes sence? I want to see how this looks mixed with strobe cream for a glowy look since on its own its a matte ish finish. HG def rebuy!
I have combination skin with moderate acne, and lately have been bouncing from product to product to try to get that flawless, all over airbrushed look. One of my friends recommended this for me, and at first I was skeptical because all of the tinted moisturizers I've tried, but when I tried this I was HOOKED! I bought it in Medium, and it matches perfectly to my skin. It doesn't feel heavy, even if I put a whole bunch on for special occasions. It moisturizes my face so I don't have dry spots, but doesn't break me out or make my face oilier. It evens out my skin tone and gives me a gorgeous, natural look. To apply it, I take a pea sized amount and use my fingers to rub it all over my face, then I squeeze some onto the back of my hand and take a stippling brush, dip it in and just dab all over my face until I get that flawless look. I will definitely be buying this again!
I have fairly pale skin but the artist at the MAC store recommended the medium, and I'd say it matches fairly well. Everything makes me break-out but this product seems to react well with my skin. When I say everything makes me break out, I mean that I currently only put 4 products on my skin- scrub, baby wash to cleanse, MAC powder and this Moisture Tint. It provides just enough moisture for my combination skin. I find the coverage to be very good and really borders on foundation coverage.
I kinda dislike this tinted mois. very much first my face got an allergic reaction to it, second, it melted on my face :o what a horrible mix. but I only have a sample size. Who ever is considering purchasing this please!! get a sample from MAC before buying the product and tested out.. There are couple tinted moisturizer that I have left to try.
