I loved this tinted moisturizer, I loved how it felt, the coverage, and the glow it added. Because of those things, I used almost the entire tube, but every time I used it it made me break out. So unfortunately, I can't buy it again.

This can be used as a sheet foundation or under other foundations. I use it alone and enjoy that it gives me plenty of conerage with no drying of my skin.

HG Tinted Moisturizer. Sheer to medium, luminous, moisturizing coverage. Has physical SPF that I prefer for sensitive skin which could stand alone for me w/o additional sunscreen during winter months. Use Natural shade for NW25/30 complexion.

Ulta has enough sales on this TM that I can get it for a decent price.

So I am finally writing this review after finishing the tube. I have had inconsistent results with this tinted moisturizer - some days it looks better than others and I have yet to discover the trick to it. Overall, I find the coverage to be light-medium. It lasts about 5-6 hours at best before I see wear, after setting it with a light powder. The thing I can't get past is the finish - it's slightly iridescent looking. I don't think I've heard other people describe it as such, so maybe it's the shade (I have it in Opal)? Opal is very neutral, bordering on the cool side.

I really wanted to love this product. I bought this one and the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and put each on one half of my face. The Bare Minerals side immediately broke out in two giant pimples after about three hours. It also became extremely oily and shiny. I'm going to return it and go with the Laura Mercier. My skin never breaks out unless it because of product so I definitely know that the Bare Minerals was the cause.

Holy Grail :)

I am on my sixth tube of this and we have been going strong for several years. Here is what I can say about it:

- light-weight, easy to spread and very moisturizing formula
- light coverage, but buildable
- very glowy finish: my combination skin does need some powder along my T-zone
- SPF 30 does hold true. I use it as my main SPF and I have never gotten sunburn
- it does not clog my pores
- great colour selection
- good ingredients
- it does last several months
- you cannot see it on my skin, but you do see the difference it makes

All in all I'm looking forward to keep using this little gem. I hope it will never be discontinued :)

Not for oily-skinned gals. I used to have oily skin, now leaning towards normal. Wore this over my day moisturizer, and also tried it in place of the moisturizer (after cleansing and toning). It was medium coverage, and made my skin look beautiful. I can see why so many people love this product. But both times my face ended up incredibly shiny after 2 - 3 hours. If you have dry skin, or if you don’t mind blotting and powdering during the day, you might love this.

My HG is still the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (original not oil-free), which has more sheer coverage and looks like my own skin and doesn’t make me super oily throughout the day. For reference I wear 4.5 Wheat in Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and Nude in Laura Mercier TM.

Just bought this product, so far so good. It has a light texture that goes on smoothly with fingers but leaves residue on fingers - easily washed off with some facial wipes. Covers up redness and some slight discolouration well. Doesn't cover up everything - it's not suppose to! Looks very natural which is a big bonus. It looks good after a few hours, makes skin look dewy and glowy. My skin is slightly oily on t-zone and dry on cheeks. I still use my normal moisturiser prior to this. Spf/pa protection is a plus but I'll probably use my normal facial sunscreen in summer or when I'm out and about a lot more.

I've been looking for a nice light coverage tinted moisturiser recently and this was one of the few that piqued my interest. I got a few samples of the TMs I wanted to try, this included. Oh, how I wish I could like this! Upon application, I liked how hydrating it was and how it didn't feel like makeup when applied on the skin. Of course, it's light coverage so I'm not going to complain about its lack of ability to cover all my acne scars and redness because coming in, I knew this product doesn't do that. What I wanted was an overall evening of the skintone that looked natural. This does that.

However, the longevity of this isn't very good on me. After maybe 3 or 4 hours, it starts to break up on the dry parts of my skin. By the end of the day, I could clearly see where this product has melted off from. I think it's also important to note that's my skin isn't particularly oily either. The other tinted moisturiser and skin tints I've tried were much better in their longevity.

Lastly, I find this gives me some spots after wearing it on a long day. Bummer.

TLDR: I like how hydrating the product feels and its light coverage look, but it's probably not the best for super dry or super oily, acne-prone skin. It may cling to dry patches and may break you out, given the emollience of this product.

i liked the coverage and the packaging but the moisturizing component left my face feeling oily. My biggest issue was the lack of shades. i wont be repurchasing
