I usually use Mineralize Satinfinish foundation, and although I am still really happy with it I have fallen hard for Studio Moisture Tint! I am usually a NC35 and have medium dark and it is perfect and so easy to apply and blends so nicely. It is more tinted than I expected which was a nice surprise! I love this and bronzer and blush - you feel pretty without feeling too dolled up! LOVE!!
This is by far the best product I have ever used. I used to live by macs studio fix powder and I decided to try this because I wanted to find something lighter. I am so glad I tried this, I will never use any other foundation again.
Not only did this make my skin look PERFECT it doesn't even look like I'm wearing makeup. I have gotten so many compliments on how amazing my skin looks.
Seriously, buy this product... it works so well the price honestly doesn't even matter.
I have only tried a few tinted moisturizers. All were from drugstore brands and they were greasy, had strange colors (like Pepto Bismol pink), or were as "tinted" as any standard moisturizer. I purchased this on a whim while I was on a week-long school trip due to frustration from how flaky my skin looks with mineral makeup. This TM has coverage comparable to some of my liquid foundations, only it doesn't break my skin out and the lightest color looks great on my skin (most foundations look orange on me). The only issue I have is the price, but the product is good enough that I can look past that.
This is a great tinted moisturizer if you want to look more natural or feel more natural and replace your foundation for something lighter.
It does provide a little bit of coverage and gives a nice fresh-faced-look on the right places of my face!
I use the studio sculpt concealer for my red spots and undereye cirles and my skin looks fresh, natural and glowy! The color medium blends perfect into my skin. I'm an NC35 at the moment, no-one can tell that I'm wearing make up!
I have been debating on wether I should try this product or not. I have just recently began to branch out at try lighter coverage foundations and tinted moisturizers. I have a slight problem with redness along my cheeks and the bridge of my nose. I used to believe the only foundations I could use were the full coverage ones that I apply to my skin for what I thought was the "flawless" look. I used Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation for about two months or so and I loved it besides the fact I was 14 years old and wearing a full coverage foundation. Then I branched out and purchased the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation, then the Clinique Moisture Surge, and finally bought this product at the MAC counter in Nordstroms. It is by far the best tinted moisturizer I have used. It leaves an airy look and feel to the skin with slight sun protection which is great. I have it in the shade Light (I am Rose Ivory in Laura Mercier, NW20 in MAC, 2 in Clinique and Beige Rose Pastel in Chanel). Here's the point- if you thought that tinted moisturizer qouldn't give you enough coverage, you're wrong. This even out your skin tone, conceals some problem areas, and for extra coverage just set with a powder. This is amazing. I owuld highly reccomend it to everyone debating like I was or not sure if this will have te=he right amount of coverage.
Colour match and coverage were good but that is where the positives stop for me. I found this TM to be quite hard to blend, not that moisturizing, smelt like strong chemicals, turned my face into an oil slick within a few hours and broke me out badly.
OLD REVIEW: im very confused whether to this is foundation or tinted moisturizer or what? this product didnt cover evenly on my face and broke me out :'( my first mac product ever :(
NEW REVIEW: I reviewed this like 3 years ago and gave it a 1/5 without even trying it a whole lot. I'm starting to like it more. If I don't use a lot, I don't like the coverage. I use it heavily to get a fuller coverage and I feel it is better that way.
This is a good TM. It lasts me most of the day and doesn't make me extra oily.
I use it after my oil control mattifier from Murad and before my translucent powder from MUFE.
I am an NC30-NC35 and I use the shade medium plus.
i spray my mac fix +, then put this on, and my mineral powder & wah-la (: I LOVE THIS! Its amazing!!<3 :D The price is an ouch! but this stuff is amazing! i recommend this to everyone, try it out and if you dont like it..return it back. <3 i loveee thiss! ahh :)
First I think it is important to know that I have combination skin (dry/normal cheeks and oily/flaky/slightly acne prone T-Zone). I am also someone who generally doesn't need a lot of coverage for my face unless I have broken out. The reason I love this so much is because of the surprisingly great coverage and finish. I love that it's light for the summer plus it gives me enough coverage to not need foundation. It leaves you with the perfect finish that makes your skin look so healthy. I apply this using my MAC 187 and I LOVE it. I think this product is very comparable to Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer and it's great because it's cheaper. Overall I HIGHLY recommend it for everyone!
