This product actually has more coverage than I thought. Everyone is saying how this is a very light tint with no coverage, however from my experience it does do a good job of evening out your face (something with zero coverage cannot do that). It definitely is light and unable to cover zits or scars, it does do a good job of tinting your skin evenly, which is very great on casual days. I would recommend this if it is within your budget.

I’ve been hunting for a low-coverage, super natural and dewy foundation and here it is! This is HG for me for my everyday foundation honestly. Lots of people have been saying this is just soooo sheer it does nothing. I really don’t find that the case for me. I find the MAC F&B foundation to be the slightest bit more sheer. This tint covers my slight redness whilst still showing my freckles and looking just really divine. I’m really over heavy foundations and have been hunting for a light foundation that I can just put on for a pinch of colour and to even everything out - this is it! Beforehand I was using the Garnier B.B. cream which I am a fan of, but I found this tint to be so much lighter on the skin and natural looking. I’m struggling to think of any foundation I would now swap this for for everyday honestly. Some cons however - the bottle is rather hard to squeeze? It’s difficult to explain but it’s not as easy to get the product out as other similar contained foundations. Additionally, the price is a little much (you are essentially paying for the Glossier label but such a good formula is just about worth the price for me) and the colour shade leans on the light side - I’m an NC22/25 with a tan and Medium is me everyday. Light is very pale supposedly which is actually a fab thing if you’re pale, I know paler foundations are hard to find. In conclusion, this lasts well on me (about 6-7 hours), never clings to any dry patches and keeps up with my oiliness and just honestly looks skin-like. If you’re looking for something to sort of properly change your complexion, this won’t be it. If you’re looking for something to give your face an even colour whilst looking like skin, this is it. I by no means have perfect skin and have a fair bit of acne scarring and I get products like this seem to be only tailored to ‘perfect’ skin but the reality is, it looks wonderful on anyone who wants to show their skin with just a bit of coverage. If you’re considering buying this, I would say just try it! Watch some YouTube reviews and realise how light coverage it is and if that will work for you but I waited 4 months before purchasing and wish I had purchased sooner :)

I really don't think this is worth it! $26 is just too much to spend on a product that makes no different in the way your skin looks. I love a light coverage, but this is just ridiculous. It's tinted water.

It evens out the complexion while being undetectable as makeup
Mistake proof it never cakes or collects into pores and fine lines
Free of irritating ingredients like alcohol, fragrance, or essential oils
The shade Light is paler than expected, about a NW10
Fast and effortless application
Packaging is functional
For $26 the packaging and ingredients are nothing special
Doesn’t contain SPF
I would prefer a more yellow shade
I’m going to try MAC F&B and The Balm tinted moisturizer before repurchasing Skin Tint as both are cheaper per ounce and The Balm’s contains SPF.

I really love Glossier and their philosophy of skin first, makeup second. How they are very minimalist and their package is very cute. I am a graphic designer and mother so these two things attracted me to the brand immediately. So onto the tinted moisturizer: I am giving this 3 stars because first, you must have perfect skin. I don't have terrible skin but I do have discoloration from previous acne scarring. This will probably cover them by 10%. It is both good and bad. Good because it allows your skin to be seen and to breathe (when you just want to run errands and look natural), but bad because if you don't have perfect skin it's not going to cover up much. One thing I did love, as with all of glossier product line up (which I own most, if not all of) is how moisturizing everything is especially if you have dry skin like me. I guess even if your skin is oily too.. But their products really balanced out my skin. Including this tinted moisturizer. So in conclusion, try this if you just really want a TINT. Do not expect it to cover up much. Great for running errands, everyday wear. Just a few drops onto your skin, lip balm and you're good to go! Make sure you use the 10% off coupon for your order!

I jumped on the glossier bandwagon because who doesn't want that minimalist, fresh, cool-girl look! I have this in light, which probably doesn't make much difference because the product is so sheer. It has a very watery consistency that makes it easy to spread. I have dry skin with the odd blemish, but I feel better with some coverage to even things out and add some glow. This product is SO difficult to detect on my skin- as in- it's hard to tell whether I even put it on or not, even with liberal application.

Unlike other reviewers, I do not feel like a grease ball after applying this even after a full day of wear. The main issue for me is that the effect is just too subtle to make a difference. I have found use for this product by mixing with others to adjust the colour and sheerness- currently I am mixing it with a Bareminerals tinted moisturizer that is a smidge too dark. The resulting blend is still a bit sheer but better than the Glossier tint on it's own. I will use the product up in this way, and may try different combinations.

I am on the fence about the packaging because it can be difficult to get the product out, but I like that you can see how much product is left in the bootle. At 32$ CAD I do not think this is good value all considered.

This product doesnt do anything. Glossier has really done well with the marketing. I believe when you are buying this product you buy the idea of being a person with perfect skin. If you are like me who likes to even out the skin, I believe a primer would do a better job..

On the hunt for a light coverage foundation that I could wear everyday and that wouldn't mask my real skin, freckles etc, I thought the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint would be perfect. I thought the price point is more than fair and I am happy to pay a lot more for good foundations/tinted moisturisers/BB creams. It had a lot of good reviews and hype, so I decided to give it a try, but sadly, this just didn't work with my dry skin.

When they say the coverage is light, they mean it. It barely showed up, and I had to layer the product to get it to a point where it wasn't totally pointless. It didn't layer too well, which was the first red flag. My main issue is redness which is usually pretty easily remedied - I wasn't trying to cover anything that would require more coverage like dark circles, so I don't know why this happened. When I did get enough product on, colour-wise it did even my skin out really well, unfortunately it just made it look awfully textured and cakey as well. It also makes it a lot less economical, because I had to use quite a lot.

I decided to give it a fair shot, but after just an hour my skin looked so dry - especially around my nose (a problem area for me), where the tint flaked off and looked patchy. My skin is pretty much perfect at the moment - it's not really even dry or dehydrated as I've spent a lot of time and effort with a good skincare routine, I have no texture, nor a single spot (hence why I thought this product would work for me). I've tried it with no primer, matte/dewy/blurring primers, an oil, a moisturiser underneath, using different tools: nothing seems to help it work with my skin. The finish was also pretty matte, which wasn't what I hoping for either.

I also think the shade range isn't good at all, bearing only Light, Medium, Dark, Deep and Rich shades and warm undertones. Credit where it's due, I did find that the Light shade really did blend in with my skin tone (porcelain with cool undertones) which I was worried about before purchasing as the model for the Light shade on their website is a lot darker than me, and I don't know how they pulled that off but it really did adapt - the colour match was perfect.

Overall, I love the idea and aim of the Perfecting Skin Tint but it was way too drying for me personally. Glossier is a great brand though and this hasn't put me off trying other products from them.

Glossier has majorly polarised the population of beauty lovers with their line, and particularly with this Skin Tint. To start of with, because people whinge that "you need to have good skin to wear Glossier products" : No you don't. Firstly, it doesn't matter how many pimples you have, how much redness, or how much pigmentation: YOU DON'T HAVE TO COVER IT UP, you are not obliged to have a blank perfect face unless that's what you want. Secondly, yes, Glossier doesn't really show models or people with problematic skin (although there is the odd pimple or two on the models haha), just like most fashion brands don't show women over a size 8. It isn't right no, so we need to keep shining a light on this issue.

If you have "bad skin" ( I put that in quotations because its such a crap sentiment) and you want to blank everything out this is not for you. Also generally, it looks worse ( in my opinion) to blank out your whole face with foundation because of pimples, when you could use a light tint and then spot conceal any pimples, makes everything look much more fresh and skin like that way. The Skin Tint is nothing like a tinted moisturiser, this gives the most minimal tint of colour and if you rated it on a scale of 5, 1 being no coverage, and 5 being Mac Studio Fix (most despised foundation of mine) then this would sit at a 1.5. I don't have clear skin at all.

As for me, I have at least 6 bad active cheek break outs at any given time, and I have lots of pigmentation and a bit of scarring from old breakouts. I love Glossier Skin Tint. I am over having to wear foundation to cover up my skin, when often covering it up makes everything more obvious and rubs off anyway unless you powder yourself so much you look dead. My skin routine now is:
1. Algenist SPF 50
2. Glossier Skin Tint Medium (8 drops) I use the shade Medium and I am a NC25 - 30 colouring
3. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage for spot concealing with pinpoint brush
3. Glossier Stretch Concealer under my eyes (not my favourite but using it anyway)
4. Hourglass Diffused Light Powder on pinpoint concealing and under eyes.

I think this is really nice to give an extra layer of moisture with a hint of colour. I don't find this greasy at all, I actually was surprised that it was more matte in texture than I was expecting. I have taken of a point because its impossible to get in Australia, and was lucky enough that my sister brought this home from America for me. I would say that it is rather small, considering how much product you can use. I am concerned that I will run out before being able to get some more (however there is a First Aid Beauty Skin Tint with SPF 30 that seems very good). That would be my main dislike, I think they could really have put an SPF in here, and would be the perfect product for me. Overall though I think its a really nice product

Ok, so, to begin: I think I'm the target market for this product. I have dry skin, I get breakouts on my forehead but overall my skin is pretty clear, and I absolutely hate foundation and most makeup bases. I typically just go for concealer. So, (like many of glossier's products) I wanted to love this, but didn't.

1. My number one complaint with this is that it makes my skin look like I just dunked my face in chicken grease. And I am allllll about a glow. I was uncomfortable leaving the house in this. I ended up having to use WAY more powder than I normally would to make it look just ok, but then I got all cake-y. (And, no, I haven't tried their Wowder, and I won't be trying it).

2. If I wanted to dunk my face in chicken grease, I certainly wouldn't pay $26 dollars to do it. This product is SOOOOOOOoooOOOo overpriced for what it is. The ingredients are nothing special. I can buy a Korean bb cream for $15 dollars or less that evens my skin tone, moisturizes, has awesome ingredients that are improving my skin, AND has SPF. On that note-


I could ALMOST (almost) forgive the level of greasiness if this had SPF in it. But... it doesn't?

I wouldn't recommend this to any of my friends. I really wouldn't. I fully understand the whole natural skin look, as I'm into it myself, but this product is nearly worthless with the coverage it gives. I would rather invest in a hydrating concealer and call it a day. I don't personally see this working for many outside of a true "normal" skin type that is in balance and has very little redness or pimples.

I had to let y'all know.
