I love this Tinted Moisturizer and have been using it faithfully for 3 years now. I buy about two bottles per year so though the cost is a little steep at $40 for less than 2oz of product I think it is worth the investment. The color range is fabulous for a TM line. I have tried Laura Mercier and I must say her line though good, color options are limited and I couldn’t find a shade to match my skin tone. I wear Medium Tint in Bobbi Brown and love it all year round. I use this over my entire face and do spot treatments of heavier coverage with either Laura Mercier Foundation Stick for days I want a less made up look and for when I need to apply after the gym. On days I want a bit more coverage I use BB Oil Free Even Finish Compact Foundation. This is a great TM and would recommend to friends.

This is my first tinted moisturizer ever. I like how easy it is to use and how it gives me a natural look that is not too cakey. On the other hand, I still don't get enough coverage from it and have to apply more and more concealer to hide my blemishes. It also has an annoying smell that I just cannot get over it and it tastes horrible too. For now this TM is good for me but I am still looking for better alernatives.

I don't usually wear foundation and i only went into Bobbi Brown to get a concealer for the odd spot that i sometimes get but the SA applied this tinted moisturizer in Medium and i was won over ! I love it !!! I apply a small amount with a bobbi brown foundation brush and it goes on like a dream - i don't even feel like i have anything on my face! I have slightly dry skin and i apply this on top of my usual moisturizer. After applying this my skin just glows and it evens out my skin tone perfectly ! This is well worth the price !!!

This is my HG foundation, for sure. Don't let the fact that it is a moisturizer concern you-- it gives you full coverage, while brightening your skin. At first I was concerned that the color would not match my skin, how could Light, Medium, and Dark be enough to cover the color spectrum I wondered. Maybe I was just fabulously lucky, or this makeup really sinks in and takes on the color of the wearer, because it looked flawless on me. I got so so so many compliments on how bright and glowing I was. It is costly, about $40 a tube, but I managed to make mine last for 4 months each! That's only $10 a month. I have bought it for 2 years, but am currently taking a break until I can allow myself to spend more money on makeup.

I just couldn't explain myself why I was paying that much money for a TM that has zero coverage and no moisturizing effect.. and returned it.

Have totally found my HG foundation. Never mind the name, it's not a moisturizer at all, so if you want moisturizing for your skin you'll have to add another product. I thought I'd never find something I'd like as much as my beloved Clarins Souffle Teint (thanks for discontinuing it Clarins!!) but this is even *better*. I put it on over sunscreen (I don't trust the SPF 15, and I use Avene 40+ Emulsion Lait sunscreen anyways), and my skin simply glows, but with none of that fake/cakey whitish look of many luminizers. It's feather-light and does what foundation is supposed to do: smooth over whatever imperfections you have so that all you see is great skin. I use my fingers to apply and I only need a tiny drop - smaller than a dime - for my whole face. I wait a few minutes and leave it alone for a dewy look or add some powder for a more professional look for work. It blends all minor imperfections, skin tone differences etc and manages to stay on for a good 4 - 6 hours. Haven't broken out yet after using it for 2 months. Absolutely amazing product, will definitely repurchase.

I absolutely love this product! It's a bit pricier, but it's excellent! It doesn't leave an oily film or cakey look like other tinted moisturizers. You need less than a dime sized drop to give yourself an even skin tone and dewey look! I have this in Medium and Medium-Dark. I've tried a few other "award winning" tinted moisturizers and this is the best one by far!

I've been on the hunt for a good tinted moisturizer for a while. BB gets great reviews here, so I decided to try it. In general BB foundations seem too yellow for me, but the SA assured me that that wouldn't be a problem, due to the sheerness of the TM. I was matched with Light. The texture is nice enough, very smooth, and it's fairly moisturizing, although I do use a separate moisturizer underneath (my skin is quite dry). Coverage is very sheer, just like a TM is supposed to be. The color just really bothers me. It's too yellow and not a good match for my skin. I don't think BB foundations and my skin are meant to be. Also, it broke me out in a few small pimples. When I think about it, my $7 Cover Girl TM works better than this $42 product. Sad.

I prefer this to Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer. LM is way too thick for my liking, while Bobbi Brown is just nice in texture, not too thick and not too runny.
It is a little towards 'little coverage'. I am NC30, and I chose Light Tint cos my loose powder is a little too dark for my liking. Using this tinted moisturizer gives my dry and patchy skin enough moisture, not too oily T zone, and tiny bit of coverage which is perfect.
I use Bobbi's concealer over my dark circles, loose powder and I am all set!
Will definitely repurchase again!! I feel happy when I am using this tinted moisturizer!!!

Bobbi Brown knows how to match a woman's natural tones. I like the dewy look that this tinted moisturizer gives. The only downsides are that it seems to wipe off easily and does not give enough coverage at all. Sometimes when I want more coverage I go back to wearing my Bobby Brown foundation stick, although - that also seems to wipe off easily too. I wish it wasn't so pricey but I love BB products and will would continue to use them.

Great product if you are looking for something to just light up your face naturally. I never feel like I have on a lot of makeup with this product and it lasts for the whole date. I am a big fan of her products, this is one of my all time favorites.

I love this stuff! It's my favorite tinted moisturizer out of dozens I've tried. No breakouts and my skin looks beautiful. Don't love the smell, kind of cucumberish. But I can deal with it. I am NC15/N3 in MAC, so that translates to Extra Light Tint in the warmer months and Alabaster in the cooler months. I have yellow undertones but pinkness from rosacea.

Incredible! Just Incredible!
I apply this with a foundation brush.
Much better than fingers. Just keep the brush cleaned.
I don't know why this tinted moisturizer is so fantastic,
but it is not heavy, it looks beautiful, SPF 15
and I have been using it over a year and have not one complaint.
You use much less if you apply with stiff flat foundation brush.
You can squeeze out too much if you don't watch out.

I'm going to assume that this is the 'new' formula, since it was purchased in February 2009. This is an early review, as I have only used this product twice. However, with this sort of product, I believe you can tell how you're going to like it. The only factor may be that your skin will react negatively with either blemishes, rashes, dry skin, etc. I will update this review if that's the case. So far what I've seen, I can say I love this stuff! I am very pale with a neutral to warm skintone. I bought this in alabaster. It evens my skintone out very nicely and covers redness by my nose or left from blemishes, etc. It is not extremely moisturizing so if you're dry, you may want to moisturize first. After initial application, it looks quite matte. After a couple of hours, it leaves quite a dewy finish. I have had to blot my forehead once during the day to take care of any shine. I do not wear powder over this.
I really love the way my skin looks with this on. Even skintone, shade is perfect, not too moisturizing. It is very expensive, but worth every penny to me. So far, no bad reactions and I usually can tell right away if that will be the case! I'll definitely have to stock up on this when I'm next in Toronto. Unfortunately, there is nowhere to buy Bobbi Brown in my town and they do not ship to Canada. (Hoping someday they remedy this!)
If you're looking for something with little coverage that looks just like your skin and not a mask, you might want to try out this little gem.
Update Feb. 12/10: Although I was using the MAC tinted moisturizer in the warmer months (and loving it) I switched back to BB when it got colder as my skin was too dry for the MAC. Still love the BB best! In addition to it not being drying to my skin and looking just like skin, but better, no other tinted moisturizer can even come close to matching colour-wise as good as this one.

This is a great foundation for light coverage. I do moisturize first, but I love the sheerness of this product. Not too matte, not too dewey. Just right for my "forty-something" skin. Expensive, yes, but it lasts...

Wow. This is fantastic. I've tried so many tinted mouisturisers for my super pale skin and this is the only one that hasn't left me with an orangey tone (I use alabaster).
It is very light, but has fantastic protection from the sun. I have sensitive skin and it hasn't made me break out. The packaging is non-fussy and simple.
I will definitely be going back to this, it's my new favourite tinted mouisturiser for sure!

I think I have finally found a good TM. I tried all the Laura Mercier TMs, with no luck at all. The Oil Free oxidized and was sticky and the Illuminating was too shimmery. The BB TM is exactly what I would design if I created a TM. It has a nice scent, goes on easily and smoothly (not difficult to blend), the shade (Extra Light Tint) works very well for me and didn't oxidize, the finish is natural and dewy and offers a nice amount of coverage for a TM.

I used to use LM in Almond and decided to give BB in Medium a try. I haven't had much luck with the generic "Medium" in the past, but this color blends very nicely and is a really good match for my skin. I can tell now that the LM has more pink in it and I need something more yellow.
Like everyone else, my gripe is the price. I find that if I use a brush for application, I can use a pretty small amount, so I'll be re-purchasing for sure. I like a dewier, more natural look and this one gives me that. A little of this TM, some blush/bronzer and I'm done!
UPDATE: Sorry to say that I started to break out from this. Too bad b/c I love everything else about it.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Easy to blend
Doesn't make me break out in spots
Shiny skin after a few hours
I believe that the makeup worth splashing out on is mascara, tinted moisturiser/foundation, concealer and blusher so even though it costs £24 I still purchased it.I have it in the Light shade and find it blends in very well with my skin tone and makes my skin look very even with a dewy glow. However by the end of the day (or night!) my skin looks very oily but it's nothing a bit of powder can't fix. My skin normally breaks out in spots when I wear foundation or TM but i've had nothing so far. Definitely worth it in my opinion.

I've been using the SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer for about 7 years now. It covers just enough. I don't like the heavy foundation look or feel so this is light enough, plus it gives me a dewy look rather than cakey. I really like it and I will definitely repurchase.
UPDATE: I stopped using this and switched to Everyday Minerals, which broke me out bad! So I'm going back to Bobbi Brown. There is a difference in price, but Bobbi Brown doesn't break me out like Everyday Minerals so I'd rather have my wallet hurt than my face.
