Ok so I have been eyeing this for years! I finally took the plunge. For everyday foundation I always turn to bare minerals complexion rescue or dr. Jart premium bb cream. So full disclosure i love a light coverage. I got this in the mail yesterday and put it on before going out to dinner it seemed to like completely disappear and I was super disappointed and I’m a hurry. Anyway to the point, when I got to the restaurant I went to the bathroom and my face in the mirror, omg, my skin looked like mine but better! I had this dew glow look but not oily. Just enough coverage. I used it this morning and same thing it took About a minute to really see it go to work. Sold. In love. I take really good care of my skin so this takes a good skin day and revs it up. If you are like me try it out. It’s just enough to make you glow and show off your goods.

Honestly, I love everything Glossier; however, it doesn’t work for all skin types. I would say in general, Glossier is for those with dry-combination skin who aren’t prone to breakouts.
That being said, that’s me and I love this skin tint! They don’t advertise it to be heavy coverage at all, it’s very sheer and won’t cover any blemishes. But, I’ve found that in conjunction with the priming moisturizer and stretch concealer, my face looks amazing with this! This really does even out my skin tone and doesn’t dry my face out. I’ve found that as I use their products, I have less breakouts than normal and I’m glad I stuck through the beginning few weeks.
I have very very fair skin, but I use St. Tropez extra dark mousse (just came out - amazing!) and I wear the dark shade in this tint. The medium is just a little too bright for me, but it’s all so sheer that your skin tone will shine through and you don’t really need to worry about finding an exact match!
Watery consistency, and I recommend applying using a stippling technique with a brush; I think using my hands sheers it out a little too much. Always use a moisturizer before applying! Any foundation will stick to dry patches if you don’t! Overall worth a shot and I do recommend it, if not you can always return it!

I have got this as I like light coverage and use concealer to cover up any 'in need' areas. It's no more coverage than a tinted moisturiser, but I think i'd prefer the moisturiser as this feels drying on the skin without a good moisturiser underneath. coverage is barely there and it does even out skin tone but I feel it also clings to any dryness on the face. For the price a tinted moisturiser or BB cream would be better. I have light and it's a very good match for my pale skin.

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.

LIKES
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
DISLIKES
For $26 the packaging and ingredients are nothing special
Doesn’t contain SPF
I would prefer a more yellow shade
CONCLUSION
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! http://bff.glossier.com/hE52A

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.
