Great for summer
I bought this product as a light alternative for my foundation during the summer months. It is really light on the skin and I love that it also has SPF 15 in it for protection from the sun. My only complaint would be that there isn't much of a color selection for women of color. I got the darkest shade they had in it (and in no way am I the darkest shade in any other MAC foundation), but I noticed that sometimes it made me a little gray. I think I fixed that issue by setting it with my Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural.
Who knew a tinted moisturizer could be great for oily skin?!
Before trying out this TM, I had first gotten Laura Mercier's TM, which I did not like. Then I got this, and alas, I'm in love! I have VERRRYYY oily skin, so I was pleasantly surprised when the finish of this was matte. Being what it is, I'm giving it 5 stars. I typically like a full coverage face, but this is great for days when I just want to even out my complexion. I finish it off with powder, and I'm good to go. It does have a slight chemical-y smell and the SPF odor is there, but it doesn't bother me. This is great for the summer, especially for the Hawaii heat!
My best friend
im not a big fan of a whole bunch of face makeup! this, right here is amazing!! for me it is anyway!. it blends in with my skin well... if you prime the face first and add this... its gives you a great look.. and if you have dark spots you can conceal and put on some blush!
Since starting my MUA adventures I have come to love this tinted moisturizer. It is really lightweight and lightly tinted to achieve the desired sheer result. When making over clients that don't need full coverage I use a bit of concealer and then apply this moisturizer. It gives them a glow but doesn't look like they have makeup on at all. Best product you can use especially in the summer for a naturally flawless appearance.
I like it~
it is my first real "splurge" tinted moisturizer. Yeah I know it's not a considered a real splurge since MAC is pretty common among most make up users, but I'm an advocate for drugstore products so going out to MAC was a "special occasion" kind of deal since I wanted some MUA advice because I don't know much about color selection and that's where I just collapse in the middle of the cosmetics department and die. Lol. It's a really good shade for me and it blends nicely. PLUS I CANT FEEL IT ON MY SKIN which is a plus because I HATE feeling stuff on my skin. It's hard because I live in a really humid climate so everything melts off my face not long after I put it on... but this I deal with.
QUICK & IN A HURRY
When I first started wearing makeup years ago I couldnt take wearing foundation (i was a chronic face toucher lol) this was the only thing that didnt wind up on my clothes after the day was done I love this for when I'm rushing and on the go!! greatttt...sheer coverage, light and moisturizing
Not too good for dry skin
This has good enough coverage for a tinted moisturizer but since my skin is dry, it didn't work too well for me as it accentuated the dryness. Only when my skin was THOROUGHLY pre-moisturized was when this product worked well (which kind of defeats the purpose as this is supposed to be a tinted moisturizer). It has a matte finish so it will most likely work well with more oily skin types.
