I really like this, I never thought I like this better than my foundation. I do not wear anymore foundation since I have found this product, I have this in light shade, it goes on smooth and silky, the shade though is a little dark, but after its on and blended out, I just looked slightly tan without award patches and this also even out my skin tone, love it for the summer and I finish off with a light touch of translucent powder and mist and fix, i am good to go for the day. I will stock up on this the next time i visit sephora.

I got this product because I wanted to start wearing tinted moisturizer instead of foundation. I was 14 at the time. I got this product for $8 which is a pretty good price for something at Sephora. It was in one of the sale bins at the end of each aisle. After applying this, it stung a bit and smelled strong of sunscreen. After using this for a few weeks, I started to notice red blotches on my face. I went to the dermatologist and found out that i had broken into hives. Note that I have fairly sensitive skin. Overall I wouldn't buy this again. It might be different for people with other skin types. I would not recommend this to someone.
-strong sunscreen smell
-didn't even out my skin as much as I wanted it to
-left a sticky feeling on my hands
-faded at the end of the day (I was in Texas when I used this so it was really humid)
-broke me into hives

I ended up returning the product. I wasn't crazy about it. While I loved the packaging (PUMP!!!) and the way the product felt on my face, I did not like that it provided nearly no coverage. I know it's supposed to be sheer, but there was virtually nothing. It looked really greasy and shiney despite it being oil-free. It had absolutely zero staying power, even with a primer and several different application methods. What little coverage there was pooled in pores fine lines like nobody's business within 3 hours of application. My skin is not excessively oily, BTW. If anything, it's leaning to dry these days. Also, I think it broke me out. The break out, I won't hold against it, since everything breaks me out. But this just isn't a winner.

I was disappointed by this tinted moisturizer. I've never used TM before so I was excited to buy this as an alternative to heavy foundations for summer. After using for a week, I have my pros and cons:
+ it has spf
+it comes in oil-free
+ its cheaper than most TMs
+ it's a big bottle with a pump dispenser
- there isn't a wide color variety, the tan bronze 30 worked for me, but people with really dark or really light skin might have trouble finding a match
-the oil-free formula still looks ridiculously shiny and oily even right after application
-coverage is near invisible and is gone within hours
Overall I would not buy again. Thoroughly disappointed.

I went into Sephora ready to spend big bucks on a great foundation. The sales rep suggested this. She put it on and it seemed ok. I bought it, because I didn't want to seem rude. By the time I got home there was barely any coverage, yet it looked like makeup was caked on my face. It is also very oily. I would not suggest purchasing this product.

It's an okay tinted moisturizer. It's a little bit greasy though, and its lasting power is pretty bad. Also, I bought this in "Light" but it was a little too orange for me.. I won't repurchase though. Save your money for something better than this.

I've used this in the past but recently stopped.
I've never used it alone as it has no coverage, but half it with foundation and it will give your foundation a nice healthy glow. And make your expensive foundation last twice as long.
Why i stopped using it? I started noticing it was turning a bit orange/oxidizing too much. And it has NO staying power at all on your nose, chin and around your nose. It's a shame, really does give a lovely glow.
But i say i will buy it again, because the BRONZE one does work lovely. gives a nice glow when mixed with foundation. My friend -who is asian and has alot of discoloration, it does WONDERS for making her skin look even and glowy.
Basically in the summer i will buy the bronze TM to mix with my foundation, that is if i dont go the GA fluid sheer#3 route lol

I wanted to give tinted moisturizers a try, so I decided to purchase Sephora brand (in "light") because it's oil-free and has SPF 15. This TM really evens out my skin tone, but it leaves my already oily face looking shiny. That's why in addition to this TM, I also use Sephora's Matifying Compact Foundation (in D25 warm natural) to give a final non-oily, flawless look. The texture is fine, not too liquidy and not too thick. However, I will not repurchase because the SPF is too low and I'm trying to use products with more natural, preservative-free ingredients.

I didn't really like this, it made my skin look very oily and it was hard to apply. If you need an inexpensive TM I suggest Cover Girl.

I got this in "Light" whichis a tad bit pale for my NC35-40 skintone...usually I use the medium or dark in other TM lines but "Light" is the ony one that has a yellow undertone, which I need for my tanned skin. I don't find this runny or oily at all, and I have oily skin. This is sheerer than other TM's I have tried, but that doesn't bother me, what does bother me is it's hard to blend. The finish is matte but not very cosmetically elegant. I have found better TM's at the drugstore (like Jane's TM's), so I don't think it's worth the price. I returned it actually, and bought Clinique's TM which is miles better than this one.

I bought this in the color "bronze" and it is a nice color. I don't really like the texture, it's very liquid, and I don't know if its just a problem with my bottle but it has some sand in it or something, I don't know how to explain but kinda like in a scrub...? i dont really like it overall, will not buy again.

I initially really liked this product, but the more I used it, the more I disliked it. First off, it has a very strong smell of sunscreen (or something like sunscreen: very pungent and not very pleasant at all). It also does not have the right undertone for me. I am an NC30-35 with warm, yellow undertones and as this TM (in neutral) does not match my skintone, I doubt it would match anyone with an NW30-35 skintone with cool, pinkish undertones either. The color comes out to be very orange and artificial.
Also, this product is very oily and does not provide that dewy, luminizing finish i look for in a TM. I guess i won't be using this or re-purchasing this after all. I must say, it would be a great face paint for Halloween, just because it is so orange!

I liked this stuff. It really made me glow. I always have comments about how I'm glowing when I wear it. But it is greasy and no coverage so unless my face is doing good I don't use it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
GREASY GREASY GREASY! I have oily skin in my tzone and dry on my cheeks. This TM made my whole face oily. As soon as I put it on it was a mess. It kind of oozes out of the tube. My sister uses this stuff and she has dry skin but she packksssss on powder so i guess the powder is obsorbing all the grease. I dont suggest this TM at all. I would rather go with CG Smoothers.

This is alright, just a touch greasy. I like the color and the sunscreen and I feel that it has improved my complexion. It has extremely light coverage and a slight sunscreen smell.

I received this in a swap and I'm glad I did as I wanted to try this out without having to purchase the entire tube. This had a potential to be a great product for me, but unfortunately, isn't. However, this might be a really good option for someone with a drier skin. Here are my PROs and CONs...
PRO: Colour - I actually like that this is VERY sheer in colour. Most of the tinted moisturizers tend to lean more towards "tinting" therefore foundations, vs. towards just moisturizing with a hint of the tint. I am lucky that I have a really good complexion and can pull off even just a bare skin or really minimal coverage, and this evens out my skin tone just perfect. With that said, I can see that this can be an issue for someone who is looking for more coverage. So, the coverage is VERY sheer and if that's not something you are into, this is not a product gfor you. Another pro is the size of the product and cost. I can see this product lasting quite a long time as the tube is fairly big an you only need a small amount.
CON: Texture/consistency... Well, as I said, this had a potential to be a great product had they only gotten the consistency right. While the product is oil-free, as most of the reviewers have noted below, it is not well absorbed by the skin and tends to just "sit" on your face. I can see this product maybe working for someone with a really dry skin, but on my normal-to-combination (I usually get some shine in the pm, but in general, I have a pretty normal skin) this is just not working as well. I definitely have to put some type of a powder to set this (and, just for the reference, with products that absorbe well I usually don't) and I do get more shiny in the pm than usual when I wear this. So, if you are considering, definitely get a sample of this product when you go to Sephora and try it out before you buy. In terms of the colour, I am light with yellowish undertones and I find 200 to work pretty well in terms of the colour match.

Good, basic, TM. I use this as a base for my mineral makeup or wear it alone on weekends. So much cheaper than many of the other TMs out there. I saw some posts saying it was runny but maybe they have changed the formula. I have it in 200 and I don't find it runny at all. I am on my second tube of this and will definitly repurchase.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
I selected the lightest shade, 100, an ivory that's a near-perfect match for my yellowish PPP skintone. I am very pleased with my purchase. It provides the right amount of moisture to feel comfortable, blends right in when applied with fingers on freshly cleansed skin, and has SPF 15 which is fine by me on its own on days with brief, incidental sun exposure. Hours after applying, all I see in the mirror is an airbrushed version of my own skin. Love the light, breathable, yet lasting coverage, the feel of the formula, and the shade. An important caveat to mention is that I do not wear powder, skip moisturizer when using this product, and appreciate the youthful look of a somewhat dewy finish.

First off, this is a TINTED moisturizer which means you are using a moisturizer with a TINT. This is not meant to have the same effects as a foundation despite it's colour range. The purpose of tinted moisturizer is to give you a slight lick of color.
Anyways in saying this I'd rather use my regular moisturizer (Dermalogica/Danne Montague King) and then either mix with a little liquid bronzer or apply my foundation or powder depending on what I feel on the day or where I'm going. (Powder for during the day and foundation for going out or night time) This is not one of my favorite items but it's ok. I find it oily despite it being "oil free" and my MAC powders dont sit properly on top of my skin when I have used this. Annoying!

I bought this a year ago the same time I bought MAC face and body (which is amazing!) it was okay if I just wanted something to add minimal coverage (like going to the beach or random things like that) it was VERY luiquidy and runny, but it worked decently. I would probably buy it again because of its inexpensive price.
