I'm a big fan of MAC anyway and I pretty much swear by this product. My skin has a tendency to break out if I wear a heavy foundation, so I always stick to tinted moisturisers and this has been the best I've tried. It's easy to blend and apply and leaves quite a matte finish, which is important to me as with 'glowy' products my skin tends to end up looking oily a couple of hours after application. I think the price is reasonable and a bottle does last a long time - you don't need to apply much of the product as it gives better coverage than other tinted moisturisers.
Short Review: Crap, Don't buy it.
Longer Review: i've always had terrible skin, with breakouts and pimples being a 24/7/365 thing. three years ago i decided to start wearing something on my face to cover the shame and bought this along with the select cover-up concealer and for three years i lived with crappy skin that looked less crappy than it was. a month ago i decided to jump into the nars pure radiant tinted moisturizer bandwagon and kissed goodbye my long beloved beauty weapon. and to my surprise within two days of not using it (still putting stuff on my face of course) my pimples cleared completely and have since not gotten a single pimple. my face is in the process of clearing up from the acne scars and i have never since i was 14 been happier with the way my face looked.
i give this moisturizer two stars because along with the nars TM i also got a glycolic acid gel so i cant fully attribute the lack of pimples to the lack of use of the MAC TM. But if you can, just save a little more and buy something of better quality.
I am very lucky in that I have good skin so don't need to wear foundation. But sometimes I want to wear something just to give me a nice even tone and sheer skin and this is perfect! Its matched perfectly to my skin tone, (I have Indian skin) and it goes on smoothly. It is the first tinted moisturiser I have bought so I don't have much to compare it too. I do think for £20 it is way too expensive, but you only need a little bit of product and it lasts for ages. I would like to try other brands, but you can never go wrong with MAC.
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
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!
