(I hesitate to jump the gun and write this review since Iíve only been using this for a couple of weeks. But, here goesÖI will have to come back if I have a change of heart!)
I read this is a dupe for the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer (which Iíve never used but heard was awesome) & I found a $2 off coupon on Targetís web site (itís still up, btw). So I decided to give it a whirl! It was only $13.69, which is about what I usually spend on my normal moisturizer and with this I get 2 products for the price of one.
For reference, Iím MAC NW20, oily complexion, redness/trouble spots Ė and have always had bad luck with foundation. Not sure why, but they usually A) Donít match my skin B) Turn orange through the day C) Make me extra oily or D) Sit on top of my pores making nose blackheads actually MORE noticeable or streak all over.
I bought it in Fair (the lightest) and feel this is a good match for my skin. First, I apply a half-dose of my regular moisturizer just to help the TM blend easier. Then I use a small drop on my cheeks, nose, forehead, chin and blend it in. It looks so wonderful! It blends so well into my skin, doesnít show up on top of nose pores, doesnít streak and just makes my skin look better overall Ė but still totally natural.
I just have to dab my concealer on trouble spots, and then I set it with a loose translucent powder and off I go. I honestly canít believe how great this makes my skin look with so little effort. It is l-o-v-e and I hope the love lasts because this is the best thing I have found for my skin in a loooong time!
