I used to love this tinted moisturizer along with everyone else in the world but that was because I was naive about what else was out there. I have oily skin and I still felt the need to put on my normal moisturizer under because the LM on is so dry since it is just packed with pigment. There are a ton of other tinted moisturizers that are packed with pigment but are better in the moisture department. i.e. Tarte, Benefit, UD, Stilla, and Smashbox. Check out your options before just getting it because your friend says so
Perfect For Summer!
I love this tinted moisturizer so much! It's great when you don't want a heavy foundation or you don't have much to cover. Its spf 20 is a plus because you can have flawless looking skin and help protect your skin at the same time! All you need is a little matte powder and you are ready to show off your gorgeous skin!
What a girl wants: Perfect skin (in a tube).
This is my current HG. I should use it every day because it makes my skin dewy and glowing, with just enough coverage to even things out. You get a natural, "no makeup" look. This probably wouldn't work for severe discoloration and it does need to be touched up at the end of the day. I like the light, creamy texture, but a pump applicator could be more hygienic and less accident prone when traveling. I also wish the SPF were stronger.
great stuff.. terrible price
beautiful coverage, people thought i had foundation on but it was just this! actually i think it was the illuminating version.. regardless, definitely my favourite tinted moisturizer.. the reason its 4 and a half instead of five is because of the PRICE. almost fifty bucks!! yeeps!
My Holy Grail
This is my holy grail of all holy grail foundations. Nothing quite measures up to this. First of all, I like sheer to light coverage. As a tinted moisturizer, this is obviously a sheer coverage product, but it does a great job delivering the coverage I need as well as being comfortable to wear. It sinks in to the skin and has little to no fragrance. While it does have the necessary SPF, it doesn't smell like SPF-which is a bonus! This has been my go-to for 10 years now, and when I wear it I'm consistently asked what kind of makeup I use to get great skin. It evens out my skin tone, looks natural, and allows my own natural beauty to come through. Because of this product, I firmly believe that you don't need to wear a mask of foundation to look your best.
Sheer, good SPF, not for me
I have extremely oily skin, and this product made it more apparent. I also have a lot of hyper-pigmentation, and I noticed NO coverage whatsoever from this product. It is unfortunately just an overpriced sunscreen to me.
Natural glow for all seasons!
This has been my go-to base for almost a year now. I have normal to combination skin, but my main problem is with flaky skin. I've tried exfoliating but I still get a little bit of flakiness around the lower half of my face. It makes finding a base that doesn't exacerbate the dry bits very difficult, but I can honestly say that this tinted moisturizer does it for me. I still use a moisturizer underneath, but it definitely doesn't cling to those dry parts! I love the dewy but definitely not shiny finish, as well as the lightweight feeling on my face. It's perfect for winter when the skin is looking a little dull, but works for spring/summer too because it's just gives a very fresh, youthful appearance to the skin! Definitely try it out, you won't regret it!
Fantastic tinted moisturiser.
I'm a big fan of this product. It's moisturising for my dry skin, but not oily or sticky. I love a tinted moisturiser that doesn't feel wet on my face if it's not set with powder and this fits the bill. It provides fair coverage for a tinted moisturiser too. Overall a great product.
Favorite Summer product!!!
A Sephora employee suggested this product for me last summer. I wanted something that I could wear in the summer and not have it feel heavy. This product does the trick, the only thing I find is that I have to apply powder to certain areas throughout the day. Also, keep in mind that this is not a full coverage product. The other downside is that I do find sometimes that the color doesn't match me a certain days.
