I bought this on a whim because it was on sale at Shopper's Drugmart. Here is my review after using it for about a week:
Texture / Feel:
Creamy, slightly greasy feel that does not absorb into skin - I can definitely 'feel' it on my face. My face felt a little dry and itchy after application.
Appearance After Application:
'Caitlin' which is described as 'lightest beige' on the packaging is a medium and slightly too orange-y pink for my NC30 complexion. Coverage is light but sits on top of your skin and does go on smoothly. It has a tendency to settle into lines and emphasize dry skin or uneven texture.
Moisturizing / Skin Improving Properties:
Poor - I wouldn't use this as a primary moisturizer (I have combo skin). I definitely need to prep my skin with moisturizer beforehand. In addition, this clogged my pores and caused me to break out every time I used it.
No sun protection is explicitly stated on the tube, however the ingredients do contain sunscreens: Octinoxate (7.5%), Octisalate (5%), Oxybenzone (3%), Avobenzone (3%).
Strong unpleasant scent that is similar to plasticine. The scent fades a little after application, but does not go away.
The tube is easy to use, sanitary, and convenient.
Looking closely at the ingredients, this also contains many types of parabens: methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylpareben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben which are endocrine distrupterscan and can be irritants to sensitive skin. Methylparaben applied on skin can reacts UVB causing increased skin aging and DNA damage :S
I do not like this product and will not buy again because of the poor performance as a tinted moisturizer as well as the irritation I experienced.

I love this product. This is the first tinted moisturizer that I have found that I will use ( and I have a whole drawer full of them! ). I have combination skin (leaning more towards dry) and had been using mineral foundation for the last few years. Even though I still love my Pur Minerals this tinted moisturizer is so multifunctional. On days when I just want a sheer, moisturizing coverage I use just my revolotion face.On the days when I want a full coverage I use this and then lightly dust my Pur Minerals over it. This never, ever looks cakey or settles into any fine lines. I love the look...dewy but not "greasy". It is so natural looking even with my full coverage foundation over it. I never feel "made up". I like this so much I bought a "lot" of these on ebay so I won't run out. A bit pricey but comparable to other good tinted moisturizer. If you are like me and think that tinted moisturizer is not for you.....try it!!!!

I have used this in "Caitlin," which actually matches my skin pretty well, even though before application it looked a shade darker than my skin. When applied, however, it blends in. For reference I use Laura Mercier TM in Nude (the second lightest shade). I've found, through trial and error, that while the lightest shade of TMs do match my skin exactly, TMs do not look that great on me when they are very light. I find that a shade darker works the best, and the same applies here, because TMs are very sheer and light and the lightest shade do nothing for me at all. I do like the Duwop TM, but the product is very very sheer, so not really tinted at all. It is more moisturizing than Laura Mercier, but I prefer a little coverage (else I'd stick with plain ole moisturizer).

I love this. Awesome texture, glowy without being shiny and easy to blend. I accidentally bought this in a shade too dark. I was so upset. Because I loved everything else about it. However it works during the summer. And I got creative. I bought Tara and I'm a NW 20. So Tara is just a tad too dark in the winter. But it makes an awesome bronzer. It blends in flawlessly and it dosn't make my skin look dirty.

The application felt unlike anything I've applied before. It seriously melts into the skin very quickly and I'm like 'where did the texture go'? You have to blend quickly and then you CANNOT feel it on your skin even by touching it. It's really crazy stuff. So enough about the texture, it does have sheer to light coverage if you need to. I have it in 'Tara' a light biege. 1.7 oz I'll update wear later....

I really wanted to like this product. The sample in Caitlin looked great and wore well but when I got my first tube from duwop.com -- discovered the dreaded oil separation. (Should have come to MUA first!) Even shaking it doesn't seem to help as it just keeps separating. With the increased humidity now in Florida, it's just too greasy looking. Back to sunblock + foundation for me...

This was one of my first tinted moisturisers. I have it in Nanci which is a pretty good match for my very pale skin. It is a touch yellow but loose powder fixes this.
The coverage is sheer, but just enough to even the skintone slighty and provide a little glow. I prefer more coverage however.
It didn't accentuate flakies and has fairly good staying power.
Overall this is a fairly standard TM. You HAVE to shake it though as the oil does seperate, which is pretty annoying!

One of my fave TM's, and I have tried A LOT of them (I'm a TM JUNKIE! ). I've read that a lot of celebrities use this TM, and hey, if it's good enough for the "red carpet", it's good enough for me! I use this in "Teny" and mix with "Sally" to make my perfect shade from winter to summer, right now I'm about an NC35 and Sally is just a bit too dark, but applied sheerly is passable. The finish is so nice! A little goes a long way, and even though it looks thick coming out of the tube, this applies soooo smoothly, and truly looks like skin, not matte, but not dewy either. One of the few TM's I don't have to apply over another moisturizer! Doesn't leave a sticky film, absorbs completely into the skin. Seems to keep oil at bay better than any other TM I've tried (yet isn't drying, weird). BTW I have purchased 3 tubes and had them over a year and have never gotten oil separation in any of them. Love it!

I have to say I expected more from this product. I understand it is to make the face luminous and all but this made my face very shiny only after wearing a short time. I liked the color the consistency but the shiny thing is a problem and I use matte primer underneath also. Another thing is the tube thing is ok, wish they used a airless pump easier to get everything out but my tube had some little funny hold thing, not the hole that is supposed to get the product out, this one was in the front and every time I squeezed some would come out there making a mess and then as others wrote you need to shake and kneed to mix this up because the oil sep. well I did this with cap on thinking closed really well not a problem, well is a problem with this fault or funky hole in around the clarp of the tube, there would be a mess of product. Maybe I got a fault one or all is this way but did not like it. I will not repurchase this unfortunatly.

I love this stuff! gives me that natural summery 'glowy but not glittery' skin and it drives matte but goes on smooth
and yes, you get oil separation but you can just shake the bottle a couple times or just mix it between the ends of your fingers
for some reason mine has a little hole between the bottle and the tip so some of the product escapes through there but that's just probably my bottle
i love this stuff, the more you use the more coverage you get basically
i have combo skin/shiny t zone but this stuff is oil free and it's great bc it dries matte smooth
Love this stuff, will buy again but I still want to try other products :P
EDIT 07/09: had this and it did 'separate' into gross icky oily and something but if you shake it well or mix it in your hand it goes on well enough. I've moved on to another tinted moisturizer but I wouldn't have minded buying this again if the sephora i go to now still carries it

So far, this is the best TM that I've tried, and this shocks me. I (idiotically) forgot to check MA before heading off to Sephora, so I only learned about the oil separation with product in hand. I figured I'd give it a go anyway and even with my combo skin, I have not had one problem! It makes me look realistically glowy (not shimmery, or, god forbid, glittery). I do set it with MUFE's Hi-Def powder and I am good to go.
A few days ago I did get the oil separation, which was admittedly gross, but I just shook up the bottle and all was right again. The only other complaint I would have is that you really don't get a lot of product. Maybe I just use a lot!
I wear this in Caitlin for my "summer" skin.

This really is my favourite TM...the colour (i think it was conchita) is amazing for my half asain/half irish skin tone....it gives the BEST coverage, more than any other TM's, but still less then lancome's bienfait......I wanted to keep this as my hg sooo badly b/c it just looks so nice on.......HOWEVER, with that said, it makes my acne-prone skin break out...AND, the oil separation is very disgusting to say the least...even when I try to shake it, I get MORE oil! so....my skin didn't like this product, but it sure does look good.

I really am enjoying this product. I like that is doesn't make my skin oily and that it seems to tone my skin. My mom kept borrowing mine. She later ended up buying her own.
***Update: I use this everyday and am still loving this stuff. This hasn't broken me out. I plan to buy another when I go to my trip to Vegas :)

Ive only had this for one day and so far im so impressed!
I was using Christian Dior Hydra Move TM which was good was i hav a suspicion was breaking me out. Either that or my la Prairie Concealer but ether way i decided to change them both. The Mecca SA told me DuWop would be great for my need of not too sheere coverage and a little bit of colour, but then changed her mind when i told her thick products make me break out in white bumps. So she suggested prescriptives traces. After trying them all DuWop looked so good i couldnt resist so she threw in a sample of salicylic acid to try help with the bumps i already had. So far i absoutely love it and that, i can say is a first because i have never truly loved a foundation or a tm. Im on the edge of saying its my HG.
I wear Laura C, which is not too pink or too yellow for my medium toned skin in summer.
EDIT: after a while it does start to seperate into product and pools of oil but i just find if you wipe the frist squeeze onto some tissue (the oil) the product looks even better than before it started to seperate

I bought this about half a year ago and wore it for about two months every other day, so I've had some time to think about this. I thought that I'd like this and I really did for awhile, even though there was something always niggling at me. I liked the way it went on, coverage was excellent, I looked healthy with it and I liked the colour range (I wore Conchita). Finally, I figured it out. Even though I never really looked oily in this, I always FELT oily, as though my skin wasn't clean, and since most TMs are supposed to be a balance of tint and moisture, I think this one just felt a little too much like a foundation, too much like makeup, and for some reason my face always felt greasy and sticky even though it never looked that way. But for me a good part of whether I like what I'm wearing is not just how it looks but how it feels, and this just didn't fulfill both criteria, much as I wish it could've.

I really wanted to like this stuff. I heard about it from Beauty Addict and it sounded perfect for me. I'm not a foundation person at all, and it seemed to be lacking all the of things I dislike about most TM and Foundations. But the color. I'm a NW 20. I got Caitlin and no matter how I applied it I always came out a very obvious weird yellow color. My boyfriend even asked if I was sick when I had it on. Nice texture though, so I'm giving it 2 instead of 1.

This is a great TM. I got this in a swap and loved it from first application. It goes on smooth and gives just enough coverage to even out my skin tone (I do use an additional concealer on blemishes or other spots where needed). Even though I am a HUGE new product junkie I am considering actually purchasing this because it is that good. I've only found one small negative, as one reviewer mentioned, and that is that the oil in the product does tend to separate towards the end of the bottle. But it is nothing a little shaking didn't take care of. Other than that, I love it!

I used to wear this (Laura C., I think) and the consistency was perfect, very moisturizing. I have oily skin, but my nose can be dry and flaky, especially when makeup is applied, and this is one of the very few foundations that wont make my nose look flaky. Is went on very smoothly, coverage was sheer and natural, and the color was perfect. Slightly darker than my skin, which I liked, because it gave my face a hint of color, and looked so natural.
BUT, and this is a big BUT, it made me soooooooooo greasy! It would look flawless for a little while, and after, say, two or three hours, I would be insanely shiny, as if I slathered Crisco on my face. I have very oily skin to begin with, but this amplified my oil issues, nothing has ever made me as greasy as this. Too bad, because this couldve been the HG makeup that I've spent years searching for.
I would recommend this to people with drier skin types. I gave it a 4 because it's a good TM, but oily girls need to steer clear of this one.

LOVE THIS! great multi-tasker : a moisturizer, light foundation sunscreen and light reflecting ALL IN ONE!! Its perfect for days you want light coverage and don't have much time to get ready! I got mine about 8 months ago.. and sadly the color is starting to seperate! it gets a bit oily. So im disappointed, considering its pricey! But if you're going to use it every day - totally recommend!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Hazel
when I first tried this product I thought it made my skin look oily...but then I realized that I don't actually have to use moisturizer with this (and it's wintertime here). It's a truely moisturizing tinted moisturizer! The coverage is very good, if I have any exceptionally red spots I use BeneFit Boing concealer along with the Revolution Face with great results. The package boasts light reflecting pigment, which I don't notice when I apply it (no overt shimmer) but I can really tell after a few hours that I don't notice my fine lines nearly as much as with other foundations.
I'm a medium complexion near MAC NC40 but more neutral. The shade I found a closest match with is Laura C. It's a tiny bit yellower than I really need, but doesn't look "off" at all. Will repurchase.
Update- about 3 months into this it seemed to start purging oil. I set it open overnight over a few stacked tissues and it sucked a whole bunch of orange oil out, but I was able to remix it the next day with equal to my expected results.
