Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

I prefer this version over the oil-free, which has an odd texture imho. Its light but provides coverage. It does a good job of evening out my skin tone with a very natural finish. I found it to be moisturising on my dry skin.
I own a few of these and I love them. They're non-sticky and moisturising with nice coverage. They feel really smooth on the lips and last for a few hours.
Lovely peachy pink with subtle sheen. Works great with my NC25 skin. Like all the Nars blushes i've tried, the texture is buttery soft and very pigmented. They blend like a dream too. My only gripe with Nars blushes and other products it's the packaging. I hate the sticky mess it becomes after a while.
Its smudges D: Thatís my only real problem with this mascara. I like how it makes my lashes look: natural, soft and long (which is what I prefer). The smudging is a deal breaker.

Itís the perfect color match for me; they have an amazing selection of colors. I love its consistency, itís very thin but at the same time has great coverage. Also it looks gorgeous in photos and very natural in real life when it's fresh. What i don't like: On a hot day, it melts off of my skin like almost completely. Also It transfers easily if not set with powder. If my skin is dry it accentuates it, so I canít use it when I have dry patches. The worst is that it pools (gross!) in certain areas after a few hours.

The coverage for this is really good for a tinted moisturizer. When I first apply it even looks a little like foundation but then it settles and melts/ blends into the skin and looks like skin, like Iím not wearing anything at all. As a moisturizer I donít think itís all that great, Iíll have to wear a moisturizer before hand but thatís ok at least it not greasy. Also Iíve not experience any breakouts or irritations.

It made my skin itchy which probably means im allergic to something in it. Itís a shame really because it has a great ingredients and it's relatively cheap
I hated this stuff! It settled in to pores and accentuated dry areas, it made my skin look horrible! It's very mask like too, nothing real about it. Iíve tried applying it every each way and it still looks bad. One of the worst Iíve tried.
This foundation is not really all that light maybe compared to the original double wear but not compared to my other liquid foundations.I tend to go for the thin consistency, skin-like finishes with medium coverage. This is creamy and kinda sticky with medium to full coverage. The colors selection is not all that good ( I wear a 2.0) and they all have more of a pinky base than yellow. Despite all this I like this foundation, the coverage is good and if I prep my skin right it looks very natural. I wear it alone without setting it with powder and it still last a very long time. It not my favourite as it feels more heavy than im used to.

It looks really pretty when you first put it on, it covers nicely and the color selection is great. But as the day goes on it looks cakey and shiny , itís not long wearing and worst of all it clogs pores like crazy and makes me breakout. Also the container and application are incredibly messy.

HG.I adore this. Iím on my 4th tube which lasts a very long time btw. Iím the kind of person that canít get away without wearing concealer so I need something that really covers dark circles and this does. It covers well, the consistency is nice, no creasing and no cakey-ness and for me this lasts a very long time ( I donít touch up during the day). A keeper for sure.

I really liked this. it covers my dark circles, blends well, doesnít settle into fine lines and itís not cakey. What I really love this for is for covering spots on my face, it makes them disappear. Im disappointed that i ran out of it so quickly, the tube carries such a very little amount that lasted like a month.

I love this concealer, i'm on my second tube. I have hereditary dark circles, the kind that never goes away so Iíve been using concealer for a loong time now. Iíve tried tons and I always had issue with caking and coverage.I love the maquicomplet because it covers well and is light, it doesnít crease and doesnít accentuate fine lines. Itís a tad bit expensive though and the packaging is flawed but it gets the job done so Iíll stick with it.

This isn't moisturizing enough, also I havenít notice anything of what it claims to do (brighter complexion, even skin tone). I havenít had any bad side effects like clog pores and such, but I feel like it doesnít do much. I even went to the estee lauder counter to try a mascara ( which I love btw) and the sa said my skin needed a moisturizer, I told her I was using one and that in fact it was Hydra Bright, she looked at me with disbelief. So ya, if you have oily skin this might work really well for you because itís not greasy and absorbs quickly.
