This is my favorite tinted moisturizer ever! I love it so much! I use it as a foundation sometimes, it's that great. Has great coverage and really does make your skin look radiant. I for sure recommend this product for any skin types.

I was extremely skeptical about trying a tinted moisturizer but wanted to try something other than foundations since they're so heavy. I decided to try this one because all of the reviews are pretty great. I went to Target yesterday and got it in Beige since they were out of Tan, the color is good but maybe a tad light for me. Coverage is surprisingly good, not at all what I was expecting. I used a powder to set it and I haven't gotten oily at all which I'm ecstatic about, although I've only been wearing it for 4 hours I would have already been oily if I were wearing foundation and powder. I'll definitely be repurchasing, though I'll be getting Tan the next time around lol. Only reason it got 4 not 5 is pricing, especially for the tube.

For me, this is just ok. I have tried so many foundations/ tinted moisturizers and decided to give this one a try. I also bought the Neutrogena one on the same day. I like both of them but may be leaning toward the Neutrogena tinted moisturizer. This Kashuk one seems a bit oily, making me too oily all day. Overall, this gives me a light coverage, does not seem to enhance my wrinkles (like all other foundations have), and feels nice going on. I am keeping the Neutrogena one too. I don't really like the greasy factor on this one though.

My first TM and my goal was to find a lightweight, sheer, breathable formula that would replace liquid foundation. Not too many color choices, but I guess that's usually the case with TM. Using a skunk brush, I get a soft-focus, glowing finish. I have no problem with the ingredients, doesn't make me break out. I finish with the Sonia Kashuk setting powder and it works great! One less lippie because of price, it is still a drugstore formula.

The packaging sucks! The product spills all over the place! Smell is kinda weird and pretty good moisturizer. Got the color tan and matches my skin tone just right! pretty pricey tho. Didn't break me out so thats the good part!

I love this tinted moisturizer. I was hesitant to try it because in Target you don't have testers, and the tube doesn't have a window or anything to show you the color of the product. I am an NC40-42 which I guess is pretty hard to match. Most tinted moisturizers are too red. I have tried MAC, Stila, Clinique, and others but have not had any luck. I was having a bad day and was determined to buy something and so I bought this in Tan. It is a perfect match! It's not that moisturizing so I layer it over my usual moisturizer (I have extremely dry skin). For the most part I just need something to even out my skin tone and this does the trick. The only thing is that if you have a dry patch or a blemish it will accentuate the problem area, which is a really big drawback.

I have very cool, pale skin and this tinted moisturizer (in fair to light) does a great job at covering up redness. While in my opinion it's not a really cool toned color, it's not really warm toned either.. and because it's so blendable it works on my skin. I'd say it's fuller coverage than you'd expect from a tm. It has never clogged my pores. Like another reviewer said, I was worried this was way too dark when I began applying it, but when fully applied it soaks in and blends nicely. I love the way my skin looks right after I apply it. Nearly flawless skin without looking like I have on makeup.
The problem is, I don't love the way it looks just a couple hours later. I have very oily skin, and it just melts off and starts looking blotchy. Then I DO look like I have makeup on, and it doesn't look good.
I'd say run and buy this if you aren't super oily like me.. or if you're actually able to control it with MoM or primers unlike me. I know this is a good product and I'd buy it again if my skin changed.

this is my first day, so if i break out will update my review. this was a lot thicker than the Philosophy TM that I was experimenting with and the color better here too. Philosophy was orange. This went on great, i used the SK highlighting brush and i did add a tiny bit of my concealer on my cheeks (they are red), but so far I like it a lot, it looks dewy on my dry skin. fingers crossed I will be able to wear this!

I'm sad to say, I'm not a fan of this product.
I like a lot of the things I've tried in the SK line and her other foundation is awesome, but this actually makes my face looks worse than when I have no mu on.
Settles in my pores, very minimal coverage, isn't that moisturizing.
It might work for someone who has oilier skin perhaps?

the jury is still out on this one for me. i will probably come back and edit after trying this out for longer, but here are my initial thoughts on this TM.
i have used this product a handful of times over the course of 2-3 weeks. it is definitely NOT moisturizing for my dry/combo skin. the 2 times i used it without a moisturizer beforehand, my face felt very very dry. today (i forgot my moisturizer this morning, oops!) i noticed little flakes of skin around my mouth, which i have never seen before.
that said, i actually kind of like this TM. i am excited to try this out in the summer or in a more humid climate than the dry socal fall/winter. the coverage is better than my stila TMs, and i appreciate how easy it is to apply.
i have large pores on my cheeks and nose, and i do not find that the product sinks into them. it may be because i use a dimethicone primer underneath (i do that with all TMs). overall this product makes my skin look like itself, but better, save for the little flaking skin around my mouth.
if you have any dry spots on your face, this may not be for you. or else, you definitely need to moisturize beforehand.

This is pretty expensive for a drugstore product. When I first bought it, I really hated it because it didn't stand up to my Cover Girl Smoothers TM in terms of price and quality. I didn't touch this after I first tried it, but finally revisited it today. I only tested it on my face before I went to take a shower, and the coverage is better than I remember. The color is right for my skin tone (Linen) when before, I thought it looked a bit orange. I think I may have left this in my stash too long because there's a strange, almost herbal scent to it. I can't remember if it was like this before. I don't think I should use it anymore which is a shame.
I would suggest you use this for winter. I bought this in the summer time some year(s?) ago and it felt too heavy on my skin.

i switch between this and the Sonia K. perfecting luminous foundation, which is much thicker. this is a light formula that i feel does a good job of giving me coverage of trouble spots. it goes on dewy and light and stays light the whole day. i feel like my skin can breathe. i do have oliy skin, so this doesn't help with that - i do need a bit of powder throughout the day to keep shine away. but the product has the lighter coverage i like and doesn't require too much concealer either. i have already repurchased 2x and would again

I am pleased with this tinted moisturizer. It's light coverage, blends easy, and didn't irritate my sensitive skin. My only complaints are not having testers and the container. Even screwing the lid on tight there is always some that leaks over the tip and into the cap.

Given my strong preference for tinted moisturizers in my recent past, I picked this one up over the Holidays, in the hopes that I'd found something that was understated, and not as pricey as LM. Kashuk touts this as being her 'dupe' for the LM Tinted Moisturizers at around 1/5th the price for a similar quality product. Hrm. Great concept, liked the slick, yet standard tube packaging, however the product was surprisingly .... drying. It's touted as an all-in-one tinted moisturizer and base/ UVA/UVB sunscreen (SPF15) in-one. Applied reasonably easily, moreso after the application of an additional moisturizer. In "Fair" this was also a tad 'off' on my pale, Winter-time complexion. This was US$12.99 before tax at a CA Target. As an upside, it lasted well, and didn't irritate my sensitive skin or cause breakouts. May well work better in the Summertime. A reasonable buy, however, I won't be re-purchasing.

I have this tinted moisturizer in linen, which was a wonderful match for my skin tone. After I saw a review on this on youtube, I went on a search for it at Target. I thought it would work wonders on my dry, sensitive, slightly discolored skin. At first it was AMAZING! Great light coverage and beautifully natural looking. I loved the lightness of this product versus the heavy feel of my revlon colorstay and laura mercier foundations. I still had to use concealer, but otherwise it was perfect. Two weeks later I developed 3 humongous pimples, 2 of which were large painful cystic pimples on my cheeks. I HAVE NEVER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE HAD CYSTIC PIMPLES!! I was extremely disappointed because I am still having to deal with the ugly scars and Christmas is in 2 days! I hope I am not left with permanent scars!! I ended up using my old foundations again and am in the process of experimenting with BB Creams. I ordered my first bb cream today! Overall, don't waste your money on this terrible tinted moisturizer. There are better alternatives, like Laura Mercier, although it makes my skin oily (and I don't even have oily skin). Hope my bad experience helps =)

I was so excited to find this TM, because my dry skin really does not need the heavy foundation. This stuff blended beautifully into my skin and looked radiant. My cheeks, which most foundations make look cakey, did not cake and glowed. However, it clogged my pores and broke me out, some of which were on my cheeks- which rarely happens. I'm very saddened by this, because I really truly wanted to like this product. =(

I went to 2 stores and checked online before I could finally find this in Linen. It's worth the trouble though. The color match is absolutely perfect. I had been using P.F. Healthy Wear over the summer and their Fair to Light shade was a shade to dark for my winter skin and you could tell that I was wearing it. Plus the coverage was heavier than what I wanted. I prefer a more sheer look for my tinted moisturizer. This is sheer but it blends perfectly with my skin as though I don't have anything on at all and my skin just looks good. People who want more coverage probably won't care for it.
EDIT: After doing a lactic acid peel yesterday, I can understand why people say it's not very moisturizing. It really isn't. I think I'll like this more in the summer when my skin borders more oily but the spf isn't high enough for summer in Vegas. I'll use this up but I doubt I'll repurchase.

I wish that I had read these reviews before I bought this. The good: The color is perfect (I am very fair), and this moisturizer goes on beautifully and smooth. It looks natural and it made my skin look lovely. The coverage is great--sheer but perfect.
However, I am very disappointed that I can never wear this stuff again (especially since I have such a hard time finding my shade) because it does clog pores and cause breakouts, just as others have reported here. My skin is clear and not acne-prone or sensitive, I'm 32 and never get breakouts, but after two days of wearing this, I had clogged pores on my cheeks and two large, painful pimples on my chin. I have never in my life had this problem. Two weeks later, I am still dealing with the aftermath. My dermatologist took one look at the ingredients and confirmed what I already knew, since I hadn't changed anything else, that this tinted moisturizer caused this problem. Now I am afraid to try any other products in this brand, even though the shade and coverage was just so perfect. (Oh, and I couldn't return it because I threw out the receipt, so I'm out the money, too.)

I do love this TM-- I bought it in Linen. The color is lovely, and the coverage is nice and sheer-- it definitely evens me out, and makes my skin look fresh and dewy. Unfortunately, I'm an oily mess after a couple of hours, which is why I had to deduct a couple of points. So sad, especially because this product had so much potential (and you can't beat the price!)

I really like this stuff! I was using Lancome Aqua Fusion Tinted Moisturizer in Sand 02 and aside from breaking out sometimes (Only if I wore it for long periods of time or duh-didnt wash my face) I loved it. However, I don't always have $42 in my wallet to spend on a face product. I just purchased Sonia's concealer kit and after loving the colors, decided to go back and grab her tinted moisturizer. I have light to medium olive skin, so you can imagine my frustration when I only found 4 colors. I actually got linen and it was too light. Fortunately I asked the return counter if I could return the product if it was the wrong shade and she said if i brought it back to her with minimal amount used, she'd exchange it. Well I was hoping I didnt have to go back but I did. Beige was a better match. So this is why I only give it 4 lippies.
I really feel they need to find a way to test colors or have a shade sheet to go off of. You can't see in bottle either, as it is white with a shade color on the plastic (hard to test) and there is only a limited color selection and I happpen to (im sure like others) be right in the middle of two colors and Target does NOT have a forgiving return policy as I mentioned above. So returning this if the color is off is out of the question ladies. It actually is less moisturizing then my Lancome product but that's ok because I wear a spf moisturizer underneath and am proned to break out easily if it's too oily/heavy. So, overall, since I found my color (and as long as I don't break out) I will continue to return to this product. But again i don't think I will change my rating until Sonia can get samples/sample sheet available to customers to make our lives easier and it would invite a lot more people to try this product.
