Very inexpensive, and doesn't look bad when on. I didn't buy it expecting any coverage, I was more interested in the moisturizing properties, as well as the vitamins. However, when I put it on, it would grip to the dry areas, not adding any moisture, and would drift causing weird streaks on my face.

I wanted to try this product for a very long time and when i've finally got a hold of it, i was excited to try it. I live in a tropical country where it is warm and humid most of the time.

Pros:
- Cheap
- I personally like the tube packaging

Cons:
- it leaves a blotchy patch
- it melts fast under the sun!


I honestly am very disappointed with this product. It is a tinted moisturizer, so its light coverage and have spf 20, BUT it leaves a blotchy patch even when i wear primer! it also melts like crazy when i am outside.
i am sure that the weather here in my country plays a part of the cons, but i would not recommend anyone who lives in a tropical county like me to purchase this.

I bought this about 5 months ago and it's still sitting on my vanity, barely used. I was expecting this to be like TheBalm Balm Shelter (which I LOVE!!) but this is no where the same. It has a very liquidy consistency when applied and it comes out orange. I got the color 'Porcelain' and this is NOT porcelain. It's also very streaky and has absolutely no coverage. at least most tinted moisturizers have some coverage. Not this one. It also has a very odd/distinct smell. It smells a bit like chemicals, not fruity or flowery. The only thing that I do like about this is that it's spf 20. But that isn't a good enough reason to purchase. I'll stick to my Balm Shelter for now.

This is not a pigmented face product. I was going to give this 3 stars because of lack of pigmentation, but I give it props because it's a tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizers are suppose to be sheer. I was expecting more coverage, but I'll still use this.

This is my first tinted moisturizer, as I have pretty oily, acne prone skin. But I wanted to give this a try because $3 right?

I use this by applying to my face with fingers and covering dark circles, blemishes, scarring, etc with concealer. I like this for light makeup days.

I'd repurchase this just because it feels really good on my skin and isn't breaking me out. If anything, it's helping acne. If you are looking for coverage, this won't give it to you.

Ehh, I say stick with BB creams and foundations for full face cover-ers haha. Using this more as a skin treatment.

For people complaining this doesn't give coverage ITS NOT A FOUNDATION/CONCEALER its not meant for coverage. If you want coverage get a foundation or a concealer. Its for moisturizing your face before you put on foundation and do your makeup. Overall I liked this product, I'm always cheap when it comes to makeup and only spend money at Sephora if its for foundation, so E.L.F, makes it really easy on me when it comes to getting cheap products here and there.

I'm not sure how to describe how odd this product is. The texture starts out quite thick but then as you blend it, it becomes thinner. The finish is somewhere between satin and dewy and as for the coverage... there is none. I don't care that much because my skin is virtually flawless other than a few very faint dark spots.Also, it transfers really badly and doesn't last very well, which is odd for me because everything lasts. At least, it didn't emphasize my dry patches. But, I had to throw it out because I developed a very odd rash on my cheeks. It went away after I stopped using it. I have very sensitive skin though, so this may not happen to everyone. But all in all, I do not recommend. At all.

No idea what possessed me to buy this stuff. Maybe I fell for all the BB/CC/DD cream hype? In any case, I was beyond underwhelmed by this tinted moisturizer. First off, it's not even all that moisturizing. Second, it added nothing to my face at all whatsoever. Now I understand that this is just a tint and not a foundation but come on! Not even a little something extra? Also, god forbid you break out in a sweat with stuff on because it will streak like crazy!

Save yourself the 3 bucks and just use 2 parts of your favorite moisturizer and 1 part of your favorite foundation - viola! Instant tinted moisturizer.

I have to say I was a little disappointed, because I love elf, honestly they are one of my favorite brands but with this it was really hard for me to find a color to match. it took almost a half hour of debating what color would match it also did have a little of an almost paint scent, but for the price, its not bad for someone who is just starting with makeup and doesn't want a strong foundation

I did not expect this product to cover like a foundation, but I at least expected it to go on smooth and provide some coverage. It was streaky going on and you have to use a lot of it to cover adequately. If you don't use enough it clumps and streaks even worse. It also seemed to have a bit of a shimmer to it which just accentuated the flaws on my face.

Coming out of the bottle, it smells sour like Greek yogurt but once its on your face it just smells of a strong sunscreen. It doesn't bother me too much, but it is a pretty strong smell. It has a sticky texture that is hard to rub in. Once its rubbed in it made my face feel and look very greasy.

It wasn't a complete waste for only $3, but I would not buy it again. With so many foundations that now have SPF in them, there are better options for an all-in-one product.
