"I know this is marketed as a tinted moisturizer but when I think of a tinted moisturizer I think of barely there coverage that does nothing for evening out my complexion. This product has blown me away.I went to the Sephora store and got my Color IQ (I am 2Y05) as I have been searching for a perfect color match and had just about given up. I was matched with many products but I wanted something that did not contain parabens and therefore my options dwindled down to only a few choices with most of them being tinted moisturizers. I have to say I haven't tried a lot of tinted moisturizers but the ones I have (ex. Laura Mericer) were not even worth paying $5 for. So when the sales associate shows me the list I became a bit disappointed in the selection but decided to have her give me some samples...it was worth a shot.I got the Hourglass and Nars samples and took them home to test out. I tried the Hourglass one first and used it for about 4 days...it wasn't bad but I wasn't impressed at all, especially considering the price. I didn't hold out much hope for the Nars at this point but gave it a go anyway. I was so completely surprised at the color match and coverage of this product...I couldn't stop staring at my reflection and I couldn't help but thinking my skin looked beautiful and radiant (notice I said skin and not makeup). I wanted some coverage but not so much that it looked like I was wearing a full face of makeup. I have freckles and still wanted them to show through a bit but also wanted to just even out my skintone.This product provides light to medium coverage but with the feeling of a lightweight moisturizer. I love that this product does not have parabens or fragrance AND it has SPF 30! I wear SPF 30 everyday on my face and was previously using Alba Botanicals SPF 30 and then Bare Minerals over that for coverage...oh and a primer under all of that to keep everything from sliding off. I have now eliminated 2 steps from my daily regimine! I do not use a primer (except on my eyelids) and I find that Nars stays put and lasts an entire day...maybe diminishing somewhat by the end of the day but nothing like my Bare Minerals would do. It gives me the dewy complexion I was looking for without looking like an oil slick at the end of the day (I have t-zone oiliness).I apply this with the Sephora Collection Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 (best foundation brush ever) and it gives me a flawless buffed finish. I use a pea sized amount and apply it all over my face and down past my jawline onto my neck for a seemless look.i have finally found a product that makes my skin look great and has non-harmful ingredients! « less" - Sephora user

"I received a sample jar when I purchased my double wear and I am so so glad to find this. I have very dry skin and it is marvelous. I use the repair serum and advance time zone at night but in the am I use this. It makes a great primer for the foundation since I do not like 'typical' matte type primer since primer seems to make my few fine lines multiply and stand out and my base look caked on, what is up with that ladies? Anyone know? But that's another story and I ramble ;)It moisturizes without feeling heavy. Gives me a great glow and seems to have brought my skin back to life. I cannot recommend enough. I'm so glad I was recommended double wear foundation from a friend and then received the samples because I had no idea what I was missing! Since high school I have used the other department store brand.... (rhymes with unique hehe) and I don't even know why I had never thought of going across the aisle.... Habit I suppose but a bad one because in less than a month I have seen actual results which I've not found in almost 20 years of the other.I am astonished at the difference it has made. Firmer skin, healthy glow, all the wonderful claims it makes? It delivers! I just assumed they were all the same and nothing was truly going to make dramatic changes, ya get what ya get in skin through DNA and I felt lucky to have inherited good skin however years in the sun, children, life in general was starting to show and I didn't like it. And now I don't have to accept it. I have told all of friends about this. Remarkable, truly.I will never use anything else. And I never say never so this is saying a lot for me :) « less" - Estée Lauder user
"This tinted moisturiser is the best I have ever came across! It provides a light layer of coverage that smooths out any imperfections and evens out skin tone. I absolutely love that this has properties such as anti-pollution filters to help protect and nourish my skin but also has a tint of colour to enhance the skin and make it glow. You can definitely build the coverage up if you prefer a medium level of coverage and it still does not feel heavy on your face. It is perfect for any age group, ideal for somebody young in their teenage years as it still allows their natural youth to shine through, or for anyone older who would appreciate an even skin tone but nothing too heavy and benefit from sealing in the skins moisture and protecting their skin with a layer of SPF 15. I love this tinted moisturiser during the summer time as it is nice and light, but I also love it just as much at winter because it gives an extra glow to your skin that sadly disappears when the dryer weather appears! It creates a dewy appearance but never looks slippery or greasy. It is just like your face is lit from within! I also have to comment on the packaging - very handy for travelling and distributing the right amount of product, as glass bottles can often be impractical. A tube lasted me a whole year, as a small amount goes a long way! For application I would recommend using your fingers as this warms the product up, letting it blend into your skin creating a more natural appearance. I absolutely love this tinted moisturiser - best in the market! « less" - SPACE.NK user
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Oil-Free Matte is your life-changing full coverage moisturizer that gives you the power to say "bye bye" to traditional foundation and hello to your most beautiful skin-now in a matte finish!
Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is Laura Mercier's skin-perfecting secret to a flawless, dewy, no-makeup-makeup look. This multitasking blend of skincare and makeup blurs imperfections, with a sheer hint of coverage.
"COOLA - Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face. It's so hard to pick a favorite out of this month's selection---but if I absolutely had to---it would be this one. If only the trial size were bigger! (okay...in truth, it's a great size...I'm just greedy and wish that there were more). The lotion is light and smells like fresh cucumbers. It cools as you massage it into your skin, and once dried, keeps your face moisturized without feeling greasy. As it was quite hot that day, I was sweaty when I was outside. Normally, my moisturizer will get oily in my T-Zone, or get "slippery" throughout the day and not provide very good protection. This moisturizer stayed put and felt so light that I barely noticed it was there. I can't say enough about this moisturizer, and will also be adding it to my daily regimen. « less" - Birchbox user
"I really struggled with making yet another foundation purchase after trying numerous products over the years. I am completely thrilled with the results. At 54 years I have some noticeable changes to my skin: fine lines, redness, hyper pigmentation from the sun and an overall loss of glow- this product was amazing and I truly mean that. It provided light to medium coverage (I applied with a damp, good quality sponge# and evened out my skin tone without settling into a single fine line. There is absolutely no powdery, cakey, or gloppy cream finish- no exaggeration of lines/wrinkles. Instead my skin looks truly fresh and dewy- not shiny; no unrealistic glittery components in the finish- just bright, youthful looking skin. I know I sound like a commercial for this product but I'm writing with passion for all of you, who- like me- thought I could never feel comfortable in my own skin again. I have some areas of redness in the creases of my nose which require more coverage- for that I used the BB foundation stick #also applied with a damp, good quality sponge# for beautiful coverage. These two products combined gave me a light, dewy complexion all over #from the moisturizing balm# and beautiful coverage of my redness -precisely and ONLY where needed #from the foundation stick#. The two products blended together beautifully- no kidding, seamlessly. I was also concerned about getting a good color match shopping online. As a young woman my complexion was very fair #almost porcelain) with age and sun exposure it has darkened substantially in some areas. Finding a good match has been impossible. The Light to Medium Tinted Moisturizing Balm was perfect- how it works across the multiple shades of my skin- I don't understand- but it does! It is worth every penny- it takes just a small amount to get my whole face, neck, deco looking beautiful without a trace of looking like I'm wearing makeup. For the foundation stick I took a chance and tried Sand. Again perfect! Most foundations I have tried made red areas look even redder and still didn't cover and made the rest of my complexion too orange. These two products cooled down my complexion. I am so happy I tried these products! I am a Bobbi Brown convert. I once again have the lovely complexion of my past- and am getting compliments once again. Try it, if it somehow does not work for you return it- taking a chance was a gift to myself. I have such confidence now- especially in bright daylight- nothing to hide anymore!

"I started using Jane Iredale foundation products when I was 31 and have been obsessed ever since. A friend I try recommend Jane Iredale products after I shared my struggle finding a foundation that didnt burn my flesh due to my extremely sensitive skin. I tried a few of the products at a local establishment carrying the line and instantly I was hooked. Now at 38 I deal with a few more typical issues such as fine lines and wrinkles. The tinted moisturizer is one of my favorite items sold by Jane Ireldale. Before I found Jane Iredale I used concealer foundation power and bronzer in order to get even coverage. However I despised the heavy feeling on my face and as I age all of that product settles into those fine lines and wrinkles I mentioned earlier. The tinted moisturizer is the answer to ALL my issues. It gives me even coverage smoothes out any pigment flaws doesnt cake up in my wrinkle regions and feels weightless too. As if those arent a good enough reason to obsess over this product....it somehow still allows my natural skin to show through. My freckles are one of my beauty features I adore and embrace the most and Jane Iredale tinted moisturizer allows me to have coverage and freckles at the same time. I have tried other products and none can compare!!! « less" - Overstock.com user
"During the day I use a day emulsion/lotion with SPF 30 on my face and I was looking for a richer product to use on my face at night, when I can use something richer on my face, and as a neck cream for day and night. The texture is incredible - when you put it on your skin just drinks it up and your skin feels incredibly smooth and plumped. It is not necessarily marketed as particularly hydrating, but it very much hydrates and keeps the skin protected - like there is a protective layer or veil left on the skin, without it ever feeling greasy or heavy. I have never felt a cream with such an amazing texture that really moisturizes and transforms the skin. The biggest visible difference is on my neck, where my skin is most dry and thin. My neck always shows crepiness and a loss of elasticity, and I have "sleep" lines or bands on my neck. This is the first cream I have used that actually got rid of the crepiness and smoothed the skin on my neck - and it lasts all day! When I ran out of the cream and started using another one in the interim, I noticed that the crepiness and dry skin on my neck came back. As long as you keep using it you will see amazing results. It is quite pricey, and I would prefer that it was at least one third less the price. I am not sure if I will keep using it since it is quite expensive and since I don't use it on my face during the day, but only on my neck and as a night cream. But if you have dry skin and plan to use it as your daily face cream, neck, and night cream - then it's probably worth it to buy this cream because you will get more use of it and won't have to double up on products. The results are truly amazing! An extra benefit is the very mild and comforting scent! « less" - Nordstrom user

"I have bought this product 4 times now, and it is hands down my favorite tinted moisturizer and i have tried most of the other brands on here. i use it for the purpose of covering redness and acne when i need to leave the house but dont want to wear actual make up to give my skin a chance to recover from all that stuff. i have really light skin and most things will oxidize on me really badly so it is hard to find a product that covers things and doesn't turn bright orange. This product is capable of covering moderately severe blemishes and discoloration if you apply it with a proper makeup brush and build the coverage. it will not look like a full coverage foundation but if your skin is getting bad and you dont wanna wear actual foundation that will make it worse this will at least cover most the redness and tone down whatever you have going on. it covers more once it has dried and set so if you feel like its not covering well enough give it like 10 minutes before you get mad lol. it has a fragrance like most high end foundations that are perfumed but i like the smell, its not too strong and smells tend to bother me. what i like most about this product is my face always looks better after ive worn this all day and take it off, it actually improves the condition of my skin. this product has never broken me out or clogged my pores. It is a tinted moisturizer so the feeling its going to give your skin will be like a thick moisturizing cream that will transfer if you touch it, you may feel like its going to clog your pores while wearing it as it can be a bit sticky and thick but it doesn't look thick or cakey, it comes off easily with a cleanser and i never feel like i have to double cleanse. so if you want something thats going to dry completely this is probably not what youre looking for. i also like the price point. 35 bucks for a product that will last me 3 to 6 months while using it to cover my whole face nearly every day makes it worth it to keep repurchasing.

"I wanted to try the Australian Gold tinted facial sunscreen with the cult following but it's been out of stock so I thought I'd give this face lotion a try. I can't compare it to the Australian Gold because I haven't tried that one yet but let me tell you, this might very well be the holy grail sunscreen for my face! The first time I tried it, I put it on a bare face, without any moisturizer, because I wanted to see how it would perform on its own. I have normal skin with a slightly oily t-zone and it did feel dry on the normal parts of my face (mostly my cheeks). After that, I applied a moisturizer underneath and this product has been THE BOMB! It goes on shiny but dries down to a powdery matte finish. It's perfect for my light skin tone and just blends in without adding any color. It keeps the matte look all day with no need to blot or powder during the day and it STAYS on. (Other ones I've tried have rubbed off at the slightest touch.) It feels like a film on my face that doesn't rub off until I wash it off, but it feels comfortable on the skin. What else can I say? This might not have the cult following (yet) but it's a fantastic product! If I could improve on it at all, I would increase the spf just to give that added protection, and make it spf 50. For people with dry skin, this might be too mattifying, unless you use lots of moisturizer underneath." - ulta user

"I have dry to normal skin and this foundation is an absolute must have product for me. I use it regularly on myself & prefer it over other foundations I have, and when doing makeup applications on others, this is my go to it looks flawless on different skin tones and skin types-this cc cream & it's pair (the illuminating cc cream) are so flattering on so many different faces! Yasss! This foundation is my all time fave, ride or die, must have beauty product, and I vote it best foundation for 2017.Anyone into beauty or makeup knows a good base or foundation is EVERYTHING and this IT cosmetics cc cream really delivers. Even though it's a cc cream (color correcting) it IS absolutely full coverage (yet feels lightweight & breathable) with awesome staying power-like waterproof. And if you pair it with the bye bye pores translucent powder it seals it in from night to day. I have not been able to find a foundation as great as this IT cosmetics cc cream thus far, & I have tried & practiced with all of the brands in Ulta.Since my skin is normal to more dry, if it is not moisturized correctly and taken care of, I can have serious issues with foundations looking full, dry, patchy , and even cakey! But ever since trying this cc cream, I have never NOT ONCE had that issue, and I use the "matte" finish, not even the illuminating.So this foundation has changed my life- it always gives an even application,amazing coverage, a smooth flawless finish with a natural look and youthful glow from within, with still being matte, so I can apply my hightlighters where I like. But with higglighters or not this foundation will never ever have your skin looking dull or dry! It can be used for a very natural no makeup look or full out glam.

"So I absolutely love this sunscreen. I saw this mentioned on Angie's (Hot & Flashy) channel awhile back. I have sensitive, acne prone and very oily skin. i patch test all products I put on my face, for 2 months ( a long time I know, but I had a bad reaction once and don't want to go through that again). This product doesn't irritate my skin at all. I had been using the Aveeno sunscreen, but it made my foundation breakup no matter what primer, foundation, etc that I used. This stuff is legit matte, and I have no separation with my foundation anymore!. Even in the humid summer, I haven't needed to put my primer (Hourglass Mineral Veil) all over to keep my makeup in place, because this sunscreen keeps me matte for several hours. I've now been able to just put the Hourglass primer in my T zone. Because this sunscreen is a lotion, it spreads easily, and dries down pretty quick. The tint is minimal and doesn't alter my light/medium complexion. The scent to me is minimal as well.I do find that since the product dries down so matte, that using a brush to apply my foundation or CC cream is problematic, so a beauty blender to me, works best. Definitely recommend a try, as for the price, you really can't go wrong. Less" - ulta.com user
"I used a specific brand of foundation for about a year, and my skin only got more problems! I realized I needed to switch to a "lighter" product, but one that I didn't have to mix with items like concealer and powders and highlighters and acne spot treatments and sun block. This product goes on very smooth, and you can layer it for more coverage. It does not block the pores on my nose, and makes them appear more smooth. This product is very light weight, still. It makes the skin feel EXTRA smooth, so balanced, and such a healthy glow, even when you are not wearing it! I absolutely love it, and it is a gem in my makeup collection!If you have some dryness from acne product overuse/acne, I highly recommend this product! It goes on very smooth! It won't look obvious and blends imperfections well.COLOR: I tried both the very fair and light, and did not notice much of a color difference. It did not appear that either looked better than the other. However, I do not have any Irish in me. :) I ended up buying the very fair color, and it works during the summer when I tan a little, too.

"About me and my skin: I am black with oily, acne prone skin (severe acne, the cystic kind), a few acne scars and pigmentation. I ordered the philosophy renewed hope in a jar skin tint in 7.5, honey.The last past year was difficult with my acne, it actually took a whole year to get rid of the bumps and some of the scars, but there were some stubborn dark areas on my cheeks under my eye area where I just could not get rid of the blocked pores. I didn’t want to use any foundation or powder to jeopardize the progress I had made with my skin. But something about a water-based tinted moisturizer that was good for the skin enticed me. I thought it to be too expensive but tried it anyway.The Product: I LOVED IT! I wish I knew sooner!!!!! within 2-3 days of using this for about 4-6 hours a day the clogged pores were gone, active acne was reduced in size and no longer inflamed and my pores overall were reduced. My face was also less oily. The moisturizing effect seemed to last beyond my nightly cleaning routine. My skin appears to be so healthy, glowing, soft to touch, smooth and toned in 2-3 days!!! I was so impressed I decided to purchase the Philosophy renewed hope in a jar night because if the tint was able to accomplish such results for a few hours a day, I believed the night cream would blow me over and it did. That will be a separate review.I do believe you can build coverage to give you a more polished look, but not to cover dark marks. I just use a dot on my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, so I see the 1 oz jar lasting over six months which makes it worth the price. I am happy QVC offers a payment plan to give us a chance to buy a product like this at that price. I don’t particularly mind the size. I hope more colors will be developed, for everyone overall, but as a woman of color, I would love to purchase one for my mom who is darker than I am and I don’t think the cocoa will be a match. Get to work Philosophy!!! This is a great product.Non-factor setback: I will say that on me, the tint needs about 20 mins to settle or perhaps warm up to my face. At first, it goes on smoothly, I use the brush it came with (I do think the Philosophy brush is absolutely wonderful by the way) or my Clarisonic foundation brush, but it is grey or ashy on my face especially on the darker areas. This surprised and disappointed me at first because I thought it was not a match. But determined to follow through, I kept it and realized that as the time passed it seemed to match my skin color perfectly. I live in Florida and it is unusually cold right now, so I’m wondering if it would need less time to match up during the summer. But this is so beneficial to my skin I don’t mind. « less" - QVC user

"I am absolutely amazed by this product! With combination skin and very dry skin due to eczema around my mouth, full makeup usually isn't an option for me. For the longest time I also wasn't thrilled with tinted moisturizers, as I found their coverage too light, so I didn't want to do the effort for unsatisfying results and ended up just using spf moisturizer. Fortunately, now this product is in my life. It gives great coverage, evens out the skin tone, moisturizes and provides spf. I find it to last during the day, only reapply translucent powder on my oily t-bone during the day. As I sometimes want higher spf and additional moisture, I tend to first apply Philosophy's 'Take a deep breath' oxygen moisturizer gel with spf 30 and then this product and it works great. The best ways to apply are with your fingers or with the beautyblender. My airbrush foundation brush couldn't match the results from those two methods. What I like best about the finish is that you look much more flawless but still as if you're not wearing makeup - naturally glowy and dewy. I have olive yellowish skin and the medium works better for me. Enjoy! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"I love this multipurpose moisturizer. It's nice and light, goes on easy, has the SPF I need, and doubles as a light foundation. I dislike foundations - they are just too heavy for me and seem to show every line and wrinkle, so this was a great alternative for light coverage. It blends nicely, and pairs well with the Les Beiges powder (which is perfection on it's own). It's probably best to use a beauty blender, but I put it on lightly with my fingers, and it goes on easily. Super light feel, and lasts all day. I have very sensitive skin, and I haven't had any breakouts or problems with this moisturizer, and I have been using it now for about 6 months. " - Nordstrom user

I should note that I don't have acne or significant skin problems, but I do have some unevenness and brown spots, and this tinted moisturizer takes care of all of that. It evens my skin tone and is exactly what I need for daytime. When I go out at night and want more coverage, the BB Cream is still the best. But I don't need that much coverage all day every day, and that's where the Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer wins. I've used other tinted moisturizers (from Bobbi Brown and other companies), and this one is hands-down my favorite. It leaves my skin with a subtle glow that I love! I hope they never change it!

"I got a sample of this after hearing so much about it from the pixiwoo girls, despite their dry skin vs. my oil slick face. I wanted something with sheer to medium coverage & a natural finish. This actually does a great job of giving me both. I used MUFE Mattifying Primer before application. I used a brush to apply & buff it in. UD Naked Concealer to areas that needed a little extra help. Laura Mercier Translucent Powder to top, bc who am I kidding? I always need to powder. And Sephora Brand Pore Perfecting Primer Mist as a setting spray. This combo was PERFECT! My skin looked great, not caked with makeup. And I was able to keep the oil under control for a good 6hr, which is a win for me. Don't let the thick moisturizer-like texture put you off if you have oily skin. I did not experience any sensitivity issues with this product like some of the other reviewers.

"A great tinted moisturizer, however, I also purchased Nars TM at the same time to compare (St Moritz and Groenland), and I prefer Nars. BS is value for money, it goes on easy and dries leaving a slight dewy texture. Nars is more expensive, so for the price of BS it is a great product and the color blends into the skin leaving it hard to tell if you have anything other than moisturizer on with a good natural skin color. It isn't a heavy coverage, it is a light coverage, so, if you need a heavier coverage, or one that you can build up the coverage, I prefer Nars. BS is true to your skin tone, if you are light the light will be perfect, a medium the medium will be perfect etc...I purchased the medium which is great for summer but need the light-medium for winter, so I purchased the light to mix with the medium when I need to :) My skin tone is similar to Liz Hurley, Hillary Duff, Cameron Diaz « less" - buy.cosmeticsnow.com.au user
"So I got this as sample in Ivory and I haven't been blown away by a product like this in quite a while (and I have so many products I could run a spa out of my house) I've never been real impressed with any TM so one day after my shower and regular face routine I figured I'd give this a try, with no real expectations. I honestly assumed I'd get typical underwhelming results and end up putting a bunch of foundation over it. Well, In the less-than-lovely lighting of my bathroom I quickly applied a bunch with my fingers as I would a moisturizer. I felt the texture was much closer to that of a foundation, not a moisturizer. I use Argan oil to hydrate in the colder months and applied this over. When I was done in the bathroom and headed over to my vanity and sat down I actually did a double take when I first looked in the mirror. The sunlight beams directly at my face there and I was really shocked to see that this product had matched perfectly, blended super evenly and provided full coverage and my face was beautiful! Even on my entire nose where foundation tends to slide around instead of blend in, and I have tiny patches of dry skin. The level of coverage is really amazing. I wouldn't rely on this to be my only moisturizer in the winter months and as I said, it feels closer to a foundation than a lotion, but over a few drops of oil it's amazing and may be perfect on its own in humid months. I have fair, combination skin with pink/neutral undertones and a touch of redness on the insides of my cheeks (1/2 Irish). After applying this I have perfectly covered, glowing skin. It even made my pores MUCH less visible without any primer which is a huge bonus for me. Again, I didn't use primer or anything because I treated this as a moisturizer instead of prepping for a foundation, and it looks really beautiful. I've seen the comments about 'glitter' and while I haven't seen any actual glitter, it is shimmery/luminous. I've actually found that the thinner you try to apply it, the more obvious the shimmer is. If you put a healthy layer all over the face and then blend outward to even it out, it's actually gives a lovely airbrushed effect & is natural looking. I also put a good dusting of powder on to finish it, to take some of the glow out. I have to note that I don't ride the 'dewy' train though. To me there's a very fine line between 'dewy' and 'you just look like you have oily skin'. I think the key is to get skin looking brighter, not oilier. Anyway, I've tried tons of foundations and BB's and TM's and this is one of the rare few that impressed me so I would recommend it. It's priced more like a foundation but keep in mind that it acts more like one too. I'd recommend doing your face routine like normal and pretend this is a foundation and apply it as such. You also need to match your color correctly since this is not very sheer. The smear they show in the product image actually appears to be lighter and more sheer than the product actually looks. It's a heartier consistency and more opaque and is probably best for people with normal-dry skin, or those who don't mind blotting or powdering a little throughout the day. « less" - Sephora user
"I almost gave up on this product over a color issue. Several years ago I purchased the Light shade for my fair skin but noticed that the color is now too yellowy-gold on my face. So I decided to go for the Bare considering the color order Sephora shows for the product. The way the shades are laid out here, it would lead one to conclude that Bare is the shade between Fair and Light, when on the Stila website, they list the shades in the order Bare, Fair, and Light. In testing at the store, it does appear that the whitish cast of bare that I experienced on my own skin really is suited to porcelain skin tones, while Fair blends better for light skin tones. I would never have thought to opt for Fair going by color grid here or by the name. I am usually the second lightest color down in a few different lines. In Laura Mercier's oil free tinted moisturizer, my shade is Nude. So the point of all this --go in to the store and get matched to your ideal shade. The rep was so helpful when I brought back my tube of bare...she tested light on me and agreed that oxided immediately to be too yellow, and she decided the fair might be a match. If it wasn't for her help I wouldn't have even tried that shade. While it was hard for me to see, she could tell that it blended perflectly and was not oxidizing as others were doing when she applied to my jawline. So thankful she helped to get me to the right shade...these folks really do know their stuff and can save you a lot of time and aggravation. I sampled quite a few different tinted moisturizers before happily settling on Stila as no others delivered the sparkle-free, sheer coverage I needed with the light moisture and non chemical SPF I also considered to be top priorities. I road tested all of the following: Tarte's Amazonian Clay tinted moisturizer, Too Faced Beauty Balm, Clinique's City Block SPF, and an old former favorite, Laura Mercier's oil free tinted moisturizer. So why is this the best? Well, if you have super reactive dry skin like me and want a little SPF protection, there is nothing like the combo of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. I can't wear chemical sunscreens as they make me break out. This product is not as moisturizing as I'd like, but when I wash it off at night my skin is smooth and looks hydrated and even. When I sampled Tarte's Amazonian Clay BB tinted moisturizer, I was shocked when I took it off at night at my skin was completely shriveled and dehydrated with that drawn wrinkled look it gets when it is starved for moisture. So I suggest dry skins stay away from that. When I tried Too Faced Beauty Balm (both Tarte and Too Faced products mentioned here have a mineral based sunscreen) their limited selection had nothing to match my skin tone and the formulation had those annoying glitter particles in it. And Clinique was white, drying, chalky and managed to break me out as well. Stila's oil-free tinted moisturizer is sheer but buildable and it does not have any sparkles in which is a big plus for me. I can't understand why manufacturers think people want glitter in their sheer coverage tinted moisturizer. I definitely need a moisturizer under this, but normal to oily skin shouldn't really, except perhaps in winter. I am making a switch after several years of using Laura Mercier's oil free tinted moisurizer mainly due to the fact that it does not provide UVA coverage even though it claims to be broad spectrum, and this product does. That is otherwise also a great product, but the lower cost, better UVA protection and more skin friendly ingredients make this my preferred choice. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="8257745427824199308-full" data-show="8257745427824199308-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"I have lived in a desert area my whole life, which means my face has gotten tanned and beaten up by the sun over and over again. With all the years, I have noticed that I have lost almost all of the glow that my face once had, it has become dull and not given me that beautiful complexion that I once had, it no longer looked sun kissed, it now had no more luster to it. I was using this as a moisturizer for about a month before I really noticed a lot of results, it is not a quick fix but it does work gradually over time to restore your natural shine in your face. It keeps my skin from getting really dried out, it adds just enough moisture to give my skin the feeling of being refreshed every morning. The smell is nice and light, it is not overly fragrant and does not irritate my sinuses like some do. I love how easy this is to use and that it helps to make my skin have that great shine that has been missing for a long time, it is an easy step to add in the morning and has paid off tremendously. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - viewpoints.com user
A weightless skin tint that imparts buildable color while protecting against sun, pollution and environmental aggressors.
"What is there not to love about a product that does everything it says it will do?! Truly a 4-in-1 -- and that's no easy feat! It smooths, glides on effortlessly and takes less than a dime-sized amount to cover your entire face. Should last you for months! Plus, it imparts a beautiful, soft glow and lasts all day without sinking into any fine lines or other unwanted spaces. The 'Dark' was perfect for my tanned, but lighter African-American complexion. Truly blended so well. Best of all, it didn't clog my pores and is gentle on my already sensitive, acneic skin, void of harsh chemicals and fragrance. For sure an all-around winner and one you should try! Like, now. It's totally worth the pricetag. Thanks PUR! " - Beauty.com user
An oil-free, SPF 20 tinted moisturizer that delivers natural, sheer-to-light coverage and non-chemical sunscreen ingredients.
"Yes, I finally found a product for my tan-dark skin! (I purchased the Medium to Tan 40) Initially I purchased this because I wanted a tinted moisturizer that would withstand the sweat of waiting tables out in the heat, sun and humidity down at the shore. So I will be completely honest in this review. This product has VERY LIGHT coverage and will BLUR imperfections but not fully cover them like a highly pigmented foundation or concealer. But this is why I LOVE this product!!! I do not have many blemishes/pimples, but I do have dark spots, faint redness, and the usual dark circles under my eyes after a long night. This product really brightened my dull dry skin with the help of its lightweight formula and shimmer. Yes, it has little very tiny flecks of "glitter" that creates a subtle shimmer effect which is lovely in the sun. It drenched my skin in a beautiful glow that makes me feel confident. Not only does it create radiance with its weightlessness, it smells sweet, contains an SPF 30, and light pigmentation to cover bits of imperfection. (It's very much like a BB cream but lighter) The tube makes for an easy application to a foundation brush or to fingertips. It's versatile and non-comodegenic (specifically formulated to not clog pores) so you can layer a concealer on top for extra coverage without the feeling of heaviness and cakeiness. Yes, this product might be a little high for the amount sold but my skin has benefited greatly. I love putting this product on because it for once it makes me feel great about my skin! Lovely product! « less" - ulta.com user
"I started using this product last summer after a Shoppers Drug mart beauty specialist suggested it. I had been using only powder mineral makeup for the longest time, because I don't like foundation but I noticed that since Im in my forties now, this left my skin looking papery and dry/dull. When I tried this product I was amazed. It made my skin dewy without being shiny or artificial. It is very lightweight with a built in sunscreen and it blends easily with a sponge. I do sometimes use a little powder o n the shiny areas of my face but it is really not necessary. When it is getting low in the tube always shake it to mix the sunscreen and colour ingredients. Because it is a moisturizer too, it prevents dryness and leaves my skin hydrated and healthy looking. I have tried other tinted moisturizers since I bought this last year, but in the end I bought this one again. EA gives such great gifts with purchase too. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="6736249322230884946-full" data-show="6736249322230884946-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - beautyboutique.ca user
"Discovered this little-product years ago and it is now my "go to" foundation for both summer time (when I've got a little color) and when the humidity is low. It is great for combining with spot concealer and loose powder for when you want a natural looking even complexion but very light feeling coverage. It is so creamy and goes on almost invisibly but it does exactly what I want it to: even out my skin tone without being heavy or obvious. I would NOT recommend it for serious blotching issues or for when sweating it off might occur, but it's a great sunscreen plus foundation product and I hope it is ALWAYS around! " - Lancôme user
"Typically if I spend the time putting on foundation or BB creams etc.. i am going to go ahead and use my foundation. I have severe rosacea so if I want it covered that’s the only way to do it. I received this as a sample & was excited to try it because I do use the make up forever foundation. I really like this. It is extremely light weight and while it does NOT give you that full coverage look I thought it did seem to blur out a bit of my redness and for that I was really surprised. I’ve tried a lot of products. Maybe it’s because I’m getting more comfortable & accepting the redness I’ve struggled with for years but either way I really like this. I’ve also gotten to where I don’t like to wear a lot of foundation or makeup for that matter. This looks very natural & feels great. It blends out so nicely. A lot of B.B. creams I’ve tried are still thick like a foundation and don’t give you that needed coverage so may as well get one that’s super light weight & natural looking. The SPF is a plus. I will definitely use this when I don’t want the full face makeup & especially in the summer. I think it would even work great under foundation because it’s so lightweight. If you’re like me then I say definitely try it. Hey you can always send/take it back but I think you will. Finally- remember for redness hydration is key. Took me a long time realizing that also « less" - Sephora user
A multiaction tinted moisturizer that blurs the look of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin radiance with the added protection of SPF 30.
"I got into the habit of using full on foundation every day but recently have felt that it was way too much makeup and was actually making me look older than I am. So I went looking for a tinted moisturizer - NOT a BB or CC cream - and read about this product online. Most BB or CC creams tend to look and feel extra heavy on my skin no matter how much product I use. It seems like you can't find just a regular tinted moisturizer anymore! I have never tried anything else from this company but I will repurchase this over and over again. It's a bonus that this is affordable! (I was almost about to get Bobbi Brown's which is $40+) If you're looking for light/medium, healthy looking, natural coverage that isn't trying to do too much - then this product is great!!

"So I switched to this Organic Wear foundation because I have eczema and the other foundation I was using (L'Oreal Visible Lift Serum) was making my face horribly red, itchy and puffy after a few hours of wear and just plain irritated- I think because it has Pro-Retinol A and other chemicals in it. At first I was not a fan of Organic Wear because it is NOT a creamy foundation, which doesn't necessarily make it as easy to apply as other thicker foundations. Granted, there is a bit of a smell to the product, but I think the benefits far outweigh this minor flaw, plus the smell does go away after it dries. You have to apply, and then just let the product dry/absorb into your skin for just a minute. If you feel like you need extra coverage (maybe for a nighttime look) then re-apply another layer if needed and finish off with a dusting of powder (I also use the Physician Formula Talc free loose powder). My skin has literally done a 360 degree turnaround after using this all natural product, whereas before it looked like someone punched me in the face because of the irritation from eczema breakouts. I wish I had switched sooner. The product is all natural and the price is right and I am really glad I tried it. Hope this helps :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user
"At the beginning of 2015, I started a search for the perfect (for me) foundation. My skin has changed as I age (49) and the foundations that used to work no longer looked natural.I am fair skinned and freckled with large pores. My once oily skin has gotten dryer due to Retin -A, and (of course) I am now dealing with wrinkling. After trying dozens of foundations this was (very surprisingly) the drugstore winner. The shade range is very limited, but "fair" works for my skin. It has surprisingly good coverage (I'd say medium) and tends to smooth over my large pores a bit. The best part is that this foundation looks natural - not like I am wearing a mask. It goes on easily with my fingers or a sponge. Basically it wins in all areas except long wear - but, then again - I've never found a natural looking foundation that lasted more than 6 hours on me. « less" - ulta.com user
"I kinda thought this would be a waste of money, but was totally wrong! I originally viewed this at Saks Fifth Avenue in Naples, FL while on vacation. I wasn't buying this, but the SA got confused and included it in my order (yes, I was billed for). When I got home, I realized she had included it in my order, and I wasn't too pleased about it. Anyway, thought I would try it out and I was pleasantly surprised. It is light, goes on a slight milky color, but disappears quickly. No shine or oil at all; I have dry skin, and it is great. It is a great product and worth the money. The bottle is quite small, but goes a long way (you don't need much). It also has a small ball inside to help mix the solution, as you need to give it a shake each use. I would purchase again - an excellent sunscreen for face. « less" - Sephora user
