WHAT the WHAH? How can one tinted moisturizer be so much better than all the others ?! This stuff is like silk -- my skin is not that great but I feel like this stuff makes it look like I face the world with a star filter on the camera lens. I feel like no matter what tint or shade I use , some how it would blend in and match. For those of you that are concerned with ordering on.line, I have worn a warm , a nude and a pink undertone and they all matched ! In saying that, I have never tried the matte formulation until now and hands down, in my opinion, it is the.absolute.best. . Before this, I wore Laura Mercier moisture tint. It was more moisture, less tint -- and while I don't like a heavy coverage (used to wear Estee Lauder Double Wear Fresco), I do need something to smooth out the redness, the brown spots and so on. This really works and I use 10x magnifying mirror !
