As you can imagine I try and buy quite a lot of beauty products. Ok, understatement of the century. I have my favourites but whilst organising my products into my new IKEA Alex storage (more on this later) the other day I wondered which product I use most.
I know it’s strange to be talking about tinted moisturiser in the middle of Winter. It is traditionally a Summer product. However, I fancied a break from foundation today.
I bought the Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer 6 months ago in a Stila set for $16 from www.beautycrunch.com. I was mainly interested in the eyeshadows and gloss and never gave the tinted moisturiser a go.
I squeezed out a little on the back of my hand and patted it on freshly cleansed skin. I don’t really like the texture of it, it felt quite greasy on my fingers, like Sun Block.
Two hours after application my skin doesn’t look greasy at all. I don’t really see any trace of a glow or of product for that mattter. I ended up slapping on some MUFE HD Foundation on my chin because the stila product seemed to draw attention to my imperfections.
Now I know it’s a tinted moisturiser and not a foundation but this really had zero coverage. It’s definitely one of those products designed for a glow. It would be a great product for someone with really clear skin. I do like that it has SPF15.
Would I buy it again? Not a chance.
I would love to try Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser. Have you tried it?
