i was using the physician formula one, but ohmygoodness. this is great for my dry skin and im so glad i got this for winter!
Unbelievable! I am not a snob when it comes to drugstore products, especially lipsticks and mascara. But most of the time, I have spent a lot on foundations (I've tried Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Prescriptives, Dior, Bobbi Brown, Armani, Clinique, Lancome, etc.) Since I ran out of my Paula's Choice Tinted Moisturizer, I was just about to try Bobbi Brown when I saw an article on the internet which recommended Wet N Wild. Wet N Wild??? Whaat? I was still skeptical, but bought it on sale for $3.50 - heck, even when it's not on sale it's only $3.99. I dabbed it on with a dampened Beauty Blender sponge and WOW. It really looks good. Not shiny, but not all dry and matte either. Light to medium coverage, just right for every day. It even has SPF 15 with titanium dioxide. Really, I am blown away by this cheap thrill. I've worn it all day & it still looks good. No sparklies in this either. Try this, I think you will be impressed. I also like the fact that it is in a plastic tube, clean & sanitary and good for travel. continued >>
This, used along with the 100% Natural Powder, makes my skin look great. I have not been able to ever find anything to make my undereyes look great. I work nights and this is a problem. This stuff is wonderful!! I do not look sleepy with this on, like I normally do. I am NC 25 and I wear a Natural in this. My only complaint is the top. I know this sounds weird, but I have a hell of a time twisting this on easily. Ughhh!! Anyways, I will be buying this again with the powder.
Bought this based on recommendations from MUA. I have been wanting to try a tinted moisturizer since the one from MAC got released. However I did not want to spend alot of money on a product I was not sure I wanted/needed. For $3.99 this product was a steal. I bought it in Natural and based on the package it it supposed to adjust to your skin tone. I am a NC30 and the product looks natural on my skin tone. There is a good amount of coverage but it does not feel heavy and also does not look heavy or cakey on my skin.
The coverage of this TM is awesome...I didn't like the CoverGirl one b/c it made my face super greasy and didn't cover anything. This WnW one covers more like a foundation, however. I have rosacea, so I definitely look for a little more coverage in the cheek area.
This TM feels very soft on my skin, and I use my Mark foundation brush to apply/blend it. For like $3-$4, the quality is great.
EDIT: I still like this; however, the color is a bit dark for my complexion. Reducing review to 4 lippies. I prefer wearing minerals for a closer match. This TM is still a good option for days when I want to get out of the house quickly, though...
This is my 2nd favorite tinted moisturizer (after Covergirl Smoothers). I've also tried Stila, Sonia Kashuk, and Physician's Formula. The WNW one is not as moisturizing as the CG one (and I have dry skin so this is an important factor for me), but it does offer more coverage. I layer it over a creamy moisturizer, and it seems to work fine. I think this is a nice color choice, not at all orange on me (in fact, it almost has a grayish cast when I first put it on, weird) but I also think that has a lot to do with your natural skintone. I have olive undertones and things usually don't look orange on me. I am a little worried about the avobenzone in this, as my skin has some sensitivity to this ingredient. But otherwise it's a great product for a great price. I say give it a try. If you don't like it, you're only out about 3 bucks.
The Natural shade matches me well, NW 20 in MAC. This is a super find and I am elevating my rating to 5 lippies. Beats the pants off Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation (sand 2) that gets blotchy. I haven't found anything in any price range that can equal or top this, and that's shocking! If you aren't ultra-pale and can find a nice match, you will probably be very pleasantly surprised.I put mine in an old Bobbi Brown pump bottle, after dumping the remainder of the Moisture Rich foundation. For $3.99 and sometimes half price, wow, what a keeper. I love it!
I bought this last year, and was impressed, such a cheap foundation (yes, it is more of a foundation), with all titanium sunscreen that works. The lightest shade was a bit dark, but worked for summer. When I wanted to buy a new one this year, they had changed the formula and shades. The lightest one is now way too dark and the titanium replaced with chemical sunscreen. Will never buy again.
UPDATE 10/27 Ok, I caved in and bought a couple of tubes of the old formula off Ebay. It works very well in the summer for me. And it is still extremely cheap on Ebay.
Once again MUA saves the day, and tons of $ by turning me onto an amazing product that I never would have tried otherwise. As other reviewers have mentioned this is more like a light foundation than a TM, but it is fantastic. I can't stand the feel of most foundations but this is light and still gives nice coverage. I can't feel it on except that my skin feels smoother. I will keep buying this and recommend others try it, for 4 bucks what do you have to lose?
Wow. I LOVE this stuff. I've been using Laura Mercier's Moisturizing Foundation and this stuff beats the socks off it. The LM is $42, this is $3.99. I have really dry skin especially around my cheeks and nose and this stuff looks so natural and does not flake off my face like most foundations do. My skin looks amazing. If I want a little extra coverage I just add a dab of the LM and it looks awesome. It'll look even better when I start wearing concealer. Seriously I am over the moon about this product, especially for the price.
