In a tinted moisturiser I look for good, natural looking coverage, an SPF and a slightly dewy, fresh looking finish. Revolotion fits the bill for me with this one. I think with TMs there is always a payoff between coverage and being moisturising (this ones leans towards the former), but as I have older skin I always wear a moisturiser underneath anyway. It hides my skin's imperfections and gives my skin a healthy glow, yet feels and looks very light on. I'm fair (Stila 30 watts) and wear this in shade Caitlin.
UPDATE 05/05: Deducted a lippie. This is starting to separate, even after I shake it before use. It's not affecting the quality of the application, but it always squirts a bit of 'oily' residue before the actual product comes out.

I have this tinted moisturizer in "Laura C.," which is a medium beige. I would describe it more as a light-coverage foundation as opposed to a tinted moisturizer.
- It calms my redness
- SPF 15
- Decent, satiny finish
- Gives me a nice glow in photos
- Doesn't do much in terms of evening out my skintone
- Small range of shades
- Not moisturizing enough
Conclusion: A decent lightweight foundation, if you can find your shade.

I got this both on a whim and b/c of the reviews. I chose the Laura C (medium beige). At Sephora the color looked okay but once I brought it home I wasn't too sure. I had tested the colors on my hand and the shade lighter Tara (light beige) seemed too light and too yellow the shade darker Conchita (dark beige) was obviously too dark. I do like the way it makes your skin look really even and healthy. It almost looks like MU but w/out the heavy feeling of a full foundation. I do get a little oily in the T-Zone by mid day but that can also be b/c I wear Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70 underneath. I always wear that sunblock under everything even if my TM or MU has SPF in it. I say if you want something to give you an even tone w/out a heavy build up and a nice healthy look to your complexion give it a try.

I've had DuWop's Revolotion Face tinted moisturizer for over a year and a half and I'm surprised it's still good, consistency-wise and protection-wise! I wore it, plus a dusting of cheap old Cover Girl powder over it, to a midday football game where I sat very high in the bleachers with almost full sun the entire time I was there. That night, my face looked like it had burned, but I washed it gently and went to bed. The next morning, my face was much, much less red! I'm so shocked and delighted that my face didn't burn. I was even sweating enough to get this TM close to my eyes (it will sting your eyes) but there was still enough protection to keep my face from burning. I really wish I had worn this on the rest of my body...
I doubt this has the best, most complete sunscreen protection you're going to find. It's only SPF 15, but that plus powder saved my face in the few hours I was in the sun. It isn't too heavy or greasy, and I don't think I've broken out significantly from it, either. I do always use it with powder, so if I did break out, I couldn't tell you if it was the powder of this TM. I'm oily-skinned and pretty acne-prone, and I haven't noticed an abnormal amount of pimples cropping up after I use this product. And thankfully I don't find it to be very emollient, despite the fact that it is billed as a tinted *moisturizer*. Revolotion Face does a decent job of helping to even out my skintone, but it isn't enough to cover up my acne scars. But hey, it's a tinted moisturizer, so I can't expect it to have more than light coverage. Even if DuWop claims it "helps eliminate redness and conceal discoloration!" I definitely have to use concealer after this if I want to really cover up my blemishes. It does have a "satin matte" finish, if that makes sense, and does look nice on if you can find a color match.
My only problems with this product are the color and the availability. Sephora only carries six out of eight shades; Sephora doesn't carry Nanci (ivory; my shade) or Lauren (deep tone.) Since Nordstrom doesn't carry DuWop, and Sephora doesn't carry my shade, I'm left to buy this online if I wanted to purchase it again. You can buy it from DuWop's official website, and from Beauty.com, and both retailers carry all eight shades. As for whether the color is the right match for me, I don't think it is. Something just doesn't look right with the color when I put it on my face. I'm going to tentatively say that I think it might be too yellow for me, since I'm very cool-toned (NW 15.) However, putting the right color of powder on top helps blend the color into something much more wearable for me. Right now I'm going to give this a solid 3.75 lippies, but a no vote on repurchasing. However, if I can't find a color match in other TMs I try, I will come back to this. It's a good product, worth trying if you haven't already, and the added SPF 15 is a great idea.

I bought this last year at Victoria's Secret for some reason Sephora didn't have it yet. It was a shade too dark (Conchita) so I didn't touch it 'til I needed it this summer. After being on the shelf (and in my hot hot car) for so long it seperated into a red oily part and a nice creamy lotion. I mix both in my hand and apply to my face. If it's a dry day I mix it with some face lotion and it's great color that's not too greasy and covers my acne scars. Pretty good I'm sure it's even better when you first buy it :p

Finally!!! I found a good tinted moisturizer!! This has great ingredients like kaolin clay, for those of us with oily skin, it has no smell, and does not give me pimples, and has an AMAZING color selection so I don't look like a ghost or an orange pumkin. The only complaint I have is that this isn't as moisturizing as it could be, but I don't mind putting a little Clinique gel lotion under it..not a problem at all!! I bought this in Laura something...kind of a light/medium beige and it looks like my skin but with a light coverage. Perfect. The only thing left to try is MAC tinted moisturizer, but so far so good. I do recommend it!! I'm so glad beauty.com gave me a refund after buying BalmShelter (which had castor oil, which gave me massive pimples...eww, i know!) so I could purchase this...great customer service, and this product is AWESOME

I'm compelled to review this because it's my HG and I wanted to address some color confusion. First, I love the texture. It seems thick coming out of the tube, but it smooths on beautifully. It also does not feel heavy. The 'satin-matte' finish is like a real skin finish to me. I have combo acne prone skin and just can't do that dewy finish (or I'll look like an oil slick). The coverage is pretty good for a TM and is very even. I do usually wear concealer under my eyes and around my nose for better coverage. My skin feels very comfortable wearing this. Crazy thing is that I don't get more oily as the day goes on. My skin, in fact, feels better when I use this! My skin does not break out, and I break out from silicones in addition to acnegenic ingredients. About the color: I use Nanci, which is the lightest color. Caitlin is the second lightest color, which is too dark for me. Unfortunately, Sephora does not carry Nanci (why??), which may be where the confusion comes from. I'm sad DuWop isn't at Nordstrom anymore. I will continue to buy Revolotion Face again and again. When I first started wearing it, I got compliments on how I was glowing, not 'nice makeup.'

I wanted to love this, i really did. Its the biggest cult TM down under and I really wanted to have an alternative TM for a change, but something about it just doesn't ring "HG". The pros are it has a lovely thick and creamy texture that is actually very easy to apply and blend on top of your everyday primer, giving your skin a very dewy, glowy smooth finish. It also comes in a funky tube packaging, is non-comodogenic, unfragranced and very affordable. The cons are the coverage and shade range. I know TM's are meant to provide sheer coverage, however DuWop fails in comparison to LM TM and even CG Smoothers. Apart from a little sun-kissed glow, it does not really even out your complexion. In terms of shade range, Nanci (the lightest shade) was a bit too white whereas Caitlin (the next shade up) was far too dark, so I figured the best I could do was go with Nanci and set it with a pigmented loose powder. For reference, I'm a perfect match in LM TM Nude (highly recommended TM). Ultimately, I do not think I will repurchase this TM again as it definitely cannot compare to my beloved LM TM.***EDIT: I take back what I said about "easy to blend in". I don't know why, but it keeps balling up on my face! I haven't changed my regular moisturizer or primer so why this is happening I cannot understand!!

I bought Revolotion Face during the late winter months, and promptly shelved it until I knew that my face could wear it with ease. In reading the reviews I see that a lot of oily skinned girls like this one, and I can certainly understand why. It's not dry or matte, per se, but it goes on almost without a trace of moisture. I personally have dry skin, so even in the summer I use a moisturizer with spf under this and it still stays fresh and good looking all day. I love that it goes on with a bit of a glow, I sometimes set it with powder mainly in the t-zone, to keep some glowiness in the cheeks. I'm actually quite surprised as to how much I like this, it's really not bad at all. I have it in Nanci.

Due to my sensitive and oily skin, I've always had trouble finding a good semi-matte/matte tinted moisturizer with SPF. The SA at my local Sephora suggested that I try the DuWop Revolotion Face. I've now been using it for about a month and it's delivered a semi-matte and light coverage. It's letting my skin "shine through" yet evens out my skin tone. I've had no increased outbreaks or irritation... It's not totally matte and my oiliness returns a bit after 5-6 hourse, but that can be easily fixed with blotting papers and powder. It also has some added "light reflecting" sparkles in it, but they are not very obvious..... I'm a CCC/MMM (Stila Oil-free foundation in G) and I'm using this TM in Lauren C (medium beige.) I'm not sure if it's a good color match, yet.... I may try Conchita (dark beige) or Sally (toffee) next. Over all, it's a nice TM! --
UPDATE: I've exchanged this from shade Laura C to Conchita and it's working much better for me, now. The "light reflecting" sparkle particles in this shade are even less obvious than in the previous shade I've tried, which is a plus for me, since I prefer a less "glitzy" look, for daytime.

Bought this a couple days ago, and i love it! I got Tara (Im a NW25-30, depending on how much I tan). It feels great on the skin, light and airy, but still covers my blemishes. It leaves a semi "glowy" look with out being too shiney. It was about 100 degrees here yesturday & it lasted all day (I was a little oily in my t-zone, but I always am so theres nothin i can do about that, lol). Overall a fantastic product:)
UPDATE: This stuff is ehhhh OK. I've noticed it's much too oily for my combo skin. I only use it sometimes now, & I have to reapply a mattifying powder like every 2 hrs when i do.

After the reviews on MUA, and after trying Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizers, I decided to try DuWop. I lthink it's a great product; probably my 2nd favorite. My fav is by Cosmedicine - Honest Face - sold at Sephora. Anyway, with the DuWop, a little goes a long way and, while it is moisturizing, it's not (thankfully), overly emmolient. It leaves a semi-matte finish, which I top with Becca loose powder in Wheat. I bought this in Caitlyn. UPDATE** Caitlyn isn't the right color for me; while yellow-based, it's too light and the next shade up is too golden. Bummer, have to move on.

I was looking for makeup that wasn't makeup... for a winter wedding I had to attend. I liked prescriptives traceless, but the lighter #2 colour wasn't quite right!
after trying many others finally came accross this one and its love!!
Not too matte, not too shiney, not obvious, but I definitely look well better??
I wear Caitlin in winter , not sure about summer yet... I am 30- 40 watts in stila.

This has got to be my fave TM! Being a PPP I found it hard to find a TM that gave me a good match in the past, but the shade 'nanci' is perfect for me- and it has no orange in it at all. I'm usually a MAC NW15, stila 10 watts for reference.
The texture is quite thick, but it isn't heavy if that makes sense. It's not super runny like a lot of TMs. It blends into the skin really easily and gives a wonderful satin finish on me- almost matte, but still just a little glowy too, without being dewy. The coverage is great- evens out the redness in my skintone and makes it look like I have great skin!
It looks great with a loose powder for a barely there look, or set with a powder foundation it gives a little more coverage without looking caked on, even with my dry skin.
Being the makeup ho that I am, I rarely finish products because I get bored easily and find I'm always looking for something better. Not with this baby! I'm about to purchase my 2nd tube.

This is the first tinted moisturizer I've ever used that I would repurchase. My skin is terribly oily and I get a nice matte finish from this that lasts for maybe 3-4 hours. Others weren't matte to begin with! The shine-free time doesn't last nearly as long as my full-face non-oily regimen, but then, that's not why I use it. I put this on when I really don't really want to wear makeup, but just want skin tone evened with some oil-controlling ability. I bought it in Nanci, which I believe is the lightest color and it works just fine for me (Nanci is not available at Sephora, but is at Beautyhabit). Definitely recommend this to ladies with oily skin who like to scale back on lazy days.

Like many of the previous reviewers, I have an oily T-zone. I've worn liquid foundation for several years now, but I hate the "makeup-y" look it gives me. Recently, I switched back to Lancome's Dual Finish wet/dry powder, but found that it made my dry spots appear flaky and that it didn't have the staying power it used to--I was shiny again a few hours later. Fed up with the liquid/powder foundation dillema, I decided to give tinted moisturizer a try. I must admit I was a little skeptical at first, but I ordered Revolution Face from Sephora in Teny, their new "sand" shade, which ended up being perfect for my light/medium skin. [Tip: I used DuWop.com to find the shade I needed because it has better depictions of the colors than Sephora's website] When I received it in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised. I can apply it at 8:00 in the morning with a dusting of powder on top, and six hours later it still looks fresh--even when I forget to use my mattifying gel first. One of the things I love best about this product is that even though it covers well and has staying power, it still leaves your skin looking and feeling like skin--only better. As a matter of fact, my face is even looking clearer since I've started using it...Coincidence? Maybe. But I really think it's because it doesn't clog my pores and make me break out as much as regular liquid foundation does. Bottom Line: Highly recommended!

I have this in Lauren, the darkest color they make. For reference, I am NW45 with slightly oily skin. I have had a problem finding a tinted moisturizer that has the right undertones. This one is perfect. It gives me just enough coverage - I don't need much - and a nice, natural looking sheen. Great product for a great price.

About me: I have super oily skin in my T-Zone and combo/dry skin around my mouth and chin. What I wanted: sheer to medium coverage. This was perfect for my needs! I tried everything from sheer liquid foundations to various tinted moisturizers (yes, even Laura Mercier) and I found this to be the best. Oil-free and regular LM were both too greasy and thick for me. Application method: I blend Revolotion on my face from the inside out with my fingers (what the makeup artist recommended) and Revolotion gave me the perfect natural coverage and left a nice matte finish that looks moisturized (not dry and flaky like some matte products). Underneath the Revolotion, I use Clinique Superdefense for sun and environmental protection, and then Philosophy The Present - Clear Powder on top of that before applying Revolotion. This technique and product combo leaves my skin matte and dry for at least several hours. When my skin gets a little shiny mid-day, I bust out my Tarte Little Blot Book, use a single blotting sheet to blot my nose and forehead. Then apply a very thin layer of powder on my nose and upper cheeks and forehead. This leaves my skin perfectly dry the rest of the day.

Love, love, love this! Revotion Face has a texture unlike all others. It is like silk and glides onto my skin leaving a soft matte invisible light finish. My perfect tinted moisturizer! I used nanci which is a light ivory nude shade without any orange or pink tones.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Red Eyes: Hazel
Perfect for an everyday go-to product. Goes on easily and texture is slightly velvet-like, but not too heavy. Nice light-reflecting effect.
Beautiful coverage and lasting power. I have tried Caitlin (2nd lightest shade) for my PPP skin for winter, and Tara (3rd lightest shade) to give me a slight tan look in Spring/Summer.
