I got a sample from my Birchbox and feel in love with it the first use. The tint is light and does not feel heavy on your skin. Plus it doesn't clog your pores!
My new favorite BB cream!
I have deathly white skin, and I received 'pearl' in my birchbox, which was a little too dark for me. Luckily, I got it in the summer so it was fine--it's not super dark and once I blended it out it's fine, but I'm going to reorder the opal. I usually stick to matte creams because I don't want to look oily (I have combination skin), but I depend on a lot of shimmery contour to make me look like I have some kind of healthy color/glow. This doesn't look oily but actually gives an amazing glow, and I look way less washed out (I'm very pale and blonde naturally) without looking like I covered myself in glitter. I'm addicted! I think I'll stick to 'pearl' in the summer and 'opal' for the rest of the year.
EXACTLY what I was looking for!
I received a matte version of this moisture tint as a sample and loved the feel of it going on but did not like that it looked slightly flaky on my skin after a while. Disclaimer: I am fifty-one years old, don't do foundation and need more moisture. I felt the matte finish also aged me so I decided to go out on a limb and spend some money on a full size luminizing version after reading reviews - I was stuck on the color and after going back and forth ordered the golden. Then I panicked that it would be too yellow - I have light olive-ish skin which can look ruddier some days but yellowish is the death knell of makeup for me. Still this arrived two days ago and I love it. Goes on smooth and stays that way, nice light coverage to even out skin tone, not yellow at all, and has a slight sheen without being too sparkly or oily looking. The color is perfect and I like the dewy look. I apply this over an anti-aging volumizing moisturizer. To me this product is just perfect.
like a lot!
This tinted moisturizer is very good indeed! it covered naturally and didn't make my face look too cakey or makeup-y. stayed put all day long and even after taking it off I noticed a difference (for the better) in my complexion!
not my fave
I just didn't like the shade. it was too dark for me. I tried to use it to contour but I'm not a big contour person. I've never used the brand before either but it seemed like good quality. overall , I wouldn't buy this product. the smell wasn't my favorite either.
