This tinted moisturizer is nice, but a little heavy. A little dab will cover my whole face-if it is applied too heavily, it gets greasy and shiny. It also can sting if it gets in my eyes, like if I am sweating and it starts to run. But the coverage is nice and it would be a good winter time moisturizer, when its' creamier consistency would be appreciated.

This is one of my all-time favorites! Doesn't make me break out and it's too heavy. I like this one a lot better than the oil-free version. Kind of expensive but worth it, and it last a pretty long time.

I received a sample of this in Nude. It's oil-free. After 2 hours my skin was so oily! I had to blot, and about 5 hours later, oily again! Not going to buy. I usually get oily after 3-4 hours, but even then, NOT so oily as this. So disappointed. I wanted to like this.

I rarely use make-up and this is good for a very simple and quick touch-up. I find it a little sticky/oily though on my combination skin. Might try the oil-free one when this finishes. Using porcelain tone.

I was lucky enough to receive this as a gift, somehow in exactly the right shade for me...! It is so lightweight as a moisturizer, which is perfect for my naturally oily, shiny all of the time skin. The coverage is I guess between medium and light, however for me it takes a whole lot of coverage to impress me as I have hyperpigmentation from acne scarring but I do notice that my skin looks glow-y and more even after just a little bit of this. My only issue with this is the ridiculously low SPF.. I live in Miami so this is important, also for the reduction of my scarring/prevent new hyperpigmentation as well as for the needed protection after the anti acne serum I use. For this reason alone I have chosen another BB cream over this, all this is lacking is a higher SPF and I'd be all over it for forever.

This product has AMAZING coverage for a tinted moisturizer - in the summer I only have to use this and no foundation/powder at all for flawless looking skin! It is not too oily either. I love it so much I wish I could keep buying it every time I run out, but it is a little on the pricey side.

Bought this in Nude oil-free version, usually wear NW20 in MAC foundations and concealers. Found this to make me more oily and somewhat sticky, which I disliked. Was looking for a lightweight and easy application with a sheer-ish coverage and it does have that just the finish is not great. I ended up returning it and going with the Clinique BB Cream and have been loving that.

over hyped product-waste of money.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black, Wavy Eyes: Brown
I must be stupid. So many years and years of using BB cream or foundation over moisturizer has gone by that I treated this TM the same. I used it over my moisturizer, and was GROSSED OUT at the results. My skin was so oily and shiny that it was just a greaseball at the end of the day with no coverage. After I discovered my issue with this product, I decided to use it one day right after washing my face and was so happy with the results. It was a moisturizer, sunblock, and coverage in 1 easy step -- the reason why this product is so loved. I finish it off with a light dusting of Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder to control my oil/shine (I have very oily skin), and then my skin looks glowly (not greasy) and even toned throughout the day.
It's hella expensive, so I'm not quite sure if I would rebuy though.. :(

over priced crap!! I got this for mothers day a few years ago, never reviewed. IMO tinted moisturizers in general make my skin slimy. I have given up on all of them.

I'm going to be in the minority here, but I was very disappointed by this product. I bought it because of the rave reviews and due to the fact that the SA applied it on me in the store, and it made me look "dewy" with sheer-medium coverage. Even my bf commented on it!
However, when I bought it and used it myself, every time I tried it, it made me look like an oil-slick after about an hour or two! This happened with or without some kind of moisturizer/primer underneath. I even tried it with the LM mineral foundation primer - still oily. I realize that this is supposed to function as a stand-alone moisturizer, but I felt that it is not really moisturizing enough on it's own. Perhaps the oil-free version would be better but Sephora didn't carry that in the travel size.
The tube packaging is nice, although I assume it would be hard to get all of the product out at the end. I'm glad that I only bought the travel size from Sephora because I won't be using it again.
Minus another lippie for the cost, $19.50 for 1 oz (travel size), which is completely ridiculous.

I love this product. I use it everyday no matter where i am going. It really evens out your skin tone and can also make you appear tanner. The only negative is that even though i bought the oil-free version, i still feel like i get greasy and have to result to oil blotters throughout the day.

I am suprised the reviews number is not higher on this as everyone I know practically wears it. LM started the TM rage, she was the first. The only really BAD thing about this is that if you are not the colors (new) Bisque, Mocha or Caramel you are NOT getting UVA protections. For shame, if she can make these new colors, and of course I would not give this a good rating if I could not wear one of them = Bisque, then she can reformulate the old ones. Otherwise, compared to other TM's this has a bit more coverage, well maybe more than a bit as it can almost cover as well as my Smashbox foundation. If you are one of the new colors highly recommend. It is a great product if you have normal to dry skin, not for oily girls. That would be more Stila.

I got a small sample tube of this in a swap. I was expecting so much more out of it due to all the excellent reviews. Everyone seems to love this and recommend it as a tinted moisturizer. It's not the best and I've even had drugstore products perform better. It doesn't cover my large pores, it transfers easily, the color "nude" was orange on me, and I just can't find anything positive to say about this. Over all I wouldn't recommend this. Instead if you want a TM I'd suggest the Garnier BB cream.

I've bought this tined moisturizer twice now. The second time was the oil free version, which made me get rashes and hives on my cheeks. The first time this happened, I thought it was a fluke, but I put on the oil-free tinted moisturizer again, and my cheeks were just super itchy and blotchy. Regardless, I think it's a wonderful product, but for those sensitive, dry skin women, be wary.

I was concerned about using this product after reading negative reviews specifically about combination skin. I have combination skin, and of late due to bad products the dry parts have been flaking. Whenever I apply foundation, primer, and/or Neutrogena oil-free sunscreen, I see the flakes. I changed to organic moisturizer and cleanser and it still flakes. After experimenting, I found the right mix of moisturizer. However, foundation and sunscreen still causes it to flake.
I tested LM tinted moisturizer spf 20 in Bloomingdale's where I could return if it didn't work. I have been using it daily and really like the product. There is no flaking at all, I use it well across my face, it gives some coverage. Its not completely like a moisturizer, its not a foundation, kind of in between. It gives minor coverage and evens out the skintone. I use it over my regular moisturizer and eye cream.
I like this product and will buy more in future. It has not dried out my skin or make it too oily. So far its working fine. I get some coverage along with sun protection for my face. Now I just need to find the right sunscreen!

First of all this is far from just a tinted moisturiser. It has the consistency and coverage of a lightweight foundation and feels as such. I felt that it needed to be set with a little powder and it transfers like crazy to whatever touches my face. And I didn't feel that the oil-free version was particularly different from the original in terms of T-zone problems.
On the plus side, it has a good variation and adaptability in colour shades (more so than the mineral and liquid foundations) - my sister is definitely a little darker in tone than me but both of us are 'caramel' and it looks fine on us. It applies well and does give medium coverage. It's also pretty forgiving if you don't have much time and just slap a little on to run out the door without looking patchy and badly applied like a foundation can do.
I wouldn't buy it again but not because it's a bad product. It's not (not causing breakouts is a plus!) but because overall I don't think tinted moisturisers work for my combination skin.

I highly reccommend this product to the people here that are looking for makeup look that's more suited for summer time, less is more! No need for foundation when you can use this product. It evens out your skintone perfectly and blends so easy with your fingers. I don't think it's for people who need or want a ton of coverage, but it's perfect for those who just want something on their skin that's making them more radiant but still fresh looking. If you are of a lighter skin tone, try to find the travel sized bottles at sephora, they are just .7 fl oz less than the full size, and it's about twenty bucks I think. Great deal! But they only come on the two lightest shades. Other than that the full bottles are almost double that price. Still love this product though.
Only problem I had was with my super oily nose, had to use a bit of powder on there (as I always do). Also, I caution the use of this product to those with super oily skin issues, this may make you more greasy.

Delivers more of a foundation finish than a tinted moisturiser finish as determined by its thick consistency. Consequently, the result is medium coverage. Not to worry, though, soon slides and transfers off! Needless to say, combination skins beware. The oil-free version was no less over-hydrating and gloopy. Disappointing all round.

I am using this in Sand (I'm NC30 for reference) and I like it! I have a pretty dry skin and my shiseido ss sometimes can accentuate the dryness around my mouth area. this tm is just moisturizing enough for my dry skin and isn't greasy - doesn't make me too shiny!
I do wish that it had a TAD bit more pigmentation. It does even out my skintone but doesn't cover anything. I go over spots where needed with a concealer.
The only thing I don't like about this is the opening of the product for some reason gets really messy. Everytime I twist the lid open, it's messy in there (I dont carry this anywhere, it just sits on my vanity so what gives?)
