Okay, maybe the title is a bit much but, you know me.
I’m only talking about tinted moisturizer, mind you.
Which, by the way, I had never heard of, and am holding a grudge against all of you for never telling me about it.
Yeah yeah, maybe my head was under a rock or something…sue me.
But seriously. I am in love.
I get slightly healthier looking skin with zero additional effort than usual.
Bye bye Neutragena Visibly Even…Hello….other stuff!!
I tried MAC and Laura Mercier and though I was shocked at the price tags ($33 and $42 respectively – for lotion? I mean, come on!) I’m so happy with the results, that it’s all good.
When I initially apply the MAC, my face somehow felt dryer and slightly coated even though i only put on a small amount but after the second or 3rd use, I got the perfect amount down and it worked really well. Once it’s on for 5 minutes my face feels moisturized and “normal.”
When I would put on foundation, no matter how little I applied, I always felt coated, and never not aware of the “stuff” on my face. ….did that make sense?
Laura Mercier, I got two sample tubs from Sephora and really liked how it felt when I immediately put it on, but after a bit, my face didn’t feel moisturized, but felt odd textured. I can’t describe it exactly, but my face felt..wrong. It looked great though. And honestly looked better than when I have the MAC on, but how my face feels matters just a bit more than how it looks. (a very slight bit. – I think I’ll be using both brands.)
I may not be that girl, but I’m digging this tinted moisturizer stuff! My face feels moisturized and looks just a bit more polished and clear without looking like I’m wearing makeup. I am amazed.
This is me with regular moisturizer on:

Can you tell the difference? (it’s ok if you can’t, I can!)
Okay okay, So maybe I cheated and also put liner and gloss on in the second pic, and look like I have a pulse….sue me.
It’s the little things lol.
Have you ever used any of these tinted moisturizers? How’d they work for you? Are there any other quick, “for dummies” kind of beauty products you could put me on to? Do tell!!
