COLOURPOP PRETTY FRESH?!?
im not much for a dewy look, but i do enjoy the no makeup makeup look during warmer days! i first got the concealer and the setting spray and fell in love!!! i soon went back to get the tinted moisturizer. COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer i LOVE this. it is so hydrating to the skin and gives an even tone when applied! it is not heavy feeling at all! COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh hyaluronic concealer this concealer is one of my favorites! i have dry under eyes, so a lot of concealers do not work for me because they end up looking dry and cakey. this is not the case with this one! it is pretty thick, however, so a little goes a long way COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Acid Setting Mist i LOVE this spray. it smells like coconuts (if your skin is sensitive to that, i wouldnt recommend this for you). the mister is very fine and doesnt leave dots on your face! will definitely be repurchasing!
Lightweight & Affordable
Happy Friday Y’all 💛 Hope everyone is staying safe! . A week ago I really wanted to purchase a new skin tint, I had a $3.50 coupon and $9 rewards from Ulta so I decided to get the @colourpopcosmetics Pretty Fresh HA tinted moisturizer and I also got the niancinamide from TO. . . I’m seriously enjoying this tint, it’s a bit more coverage compared to the glossier skin tint and I would say it dries down a bit less dewy but definitely beautifully glowy! . . It was $15 and you get a pretty big amount. I do like that it comes in a pump and it feels pretty good on the skin too! I’ll definitely be repurchasing this as an affordable foundation. And I definitely recommend it too. Also colourpop is cruelty free! . . I purchased another skin tint this week that I’m excited about, so that’ll probably be it for me regarding base products for a while, next up I’m on the hunt for bronzer (a cream and a powder)!

Liquid Foundation Comparisons
My skin type: normal skin. Bird's Nest It can fill in pores and brighten complexion, but it has almost no concealing effect. It is not particularly moisturizing or dry, and is suitable for those with enlarged pores to use it as a primer. In my case, it doesn't cut it as a foundation. WANDER BEAUTY - Nude Illusion Liquid Foundation 💓It conceals well and comes with a concealer stick so it can be used both as a foundation and a concealer. 10/10 would recommend! FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Hydrating Longwear Foundation 💓It comes in a portable tube and it's much simpler than Wander Beauty's packaging. It only has a 30-40% coverage. I neither find this foundation particularly good nor bad. laura mercier - Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum 💓It's a weak concealer which is very moisturizing. I like it the most out of the four.👸🏻👸🏻 The color I tested was Ow1 Pearl, which is very suitable for normal skin.
Perfect skin with this tinted moisturizer!
I absolutely love the laura mercier - Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum It gives the most beautiful finish on the skin. It is hydrating, perfecting, and protecting. It includes SPF to protect your skin while evening out the complexion. It gives light-medium coverage that evens out the skin tone and leaves your skin looking fresh and LIKE SKIN! It really just makes it look like you had a good skin day! I like to apply it with a brush, but it also works well just using your fingers. I’m wearing shade 1N2 - Vanille. This tinted moisturizer is A+ for everyday wear!

“No Makeup” Look
Loving this natural, glowy, “no-makeup” look. Perfect for the weekend! CHANEL - Rouge coco flash Shade: 56 Moment The formula is that of a balm and very comfortable. Provides a sheer splash of color to the lips, perfect to apply without a mirror. CHANEL - Les beiges water fresh tint Shade: Medium Light Provides barely there coverage - which is what I am loving lately! This is one of my favorite base products to use... so it’s always somewhere in the mix! CHANEL - LES 4 OMBRES Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow Shade: 266 Tissé Essentiel Very basic palette, but I love the neutral tones in this palette which creates a very subtle smokey-eye. Provides subtle definition. Perfect for the daytime. This is a very powdery palette though, wish the shadows were slightly more creamy. Kosas - REVEALER SUPER CREAMY + BRIGHTENING Concealer Shade: 3.5 Color tends to run on the more yellow side, I should have gotten shade 2 or 3 to brighten the under eye area. Overall though, I do like the formula. Very creamy and easy to blend. rms beauty - Un" Powder This gets the job done, not the best out there. But, there is no talc in this formula! rms beauty - LIVING LUMINIZER GLOW QUAD MINI I love color variety and travel size products - so extra brownie points since this quad allows me to play with shades that I otherwise would pass up on. This provides the subtle lit from within glow. Although, some of the shades you really do need to build up. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Shade: Dusk Can’t say enough good things about cloud paint. Love how easy it is to just pat into the face for a subtle flush of color. ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara Shade: After Midnight I have very short and straight lashes. This mascara makes them look so long! I have thrown out all my other mascaras and am only using this one! benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel Shade: 4.5 Another one of those that always appear in my posts in terms of brow products!
Monthly Product Reflection: April 2020
What I used most in April 2020 to run errands during the shelter in place orders. Fresh, light, and barely there. Chanel - UV Essentiel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Enjoyed this sunscreen a lot while out on walks over the weekends, especially since some of my skin tints do not have a lot (if any) SPF. CHANEL - Les beiges water fresh tint Love this barely there coverage that just evens out the complexion and adds a some warmth to the face. tarte - Tartelette In Bloom Clay Eyeshadow Palette During the month of April, I went through some decluttering of old makeup and brought this one back out in the vanity! Love the neutral tones. Perfect for adding a sheer wash of color on the lids. Glossier. - You My normal everyday perfume. Spritzing this on made me feel like I was going through my normal routine despite these unprecedented times. Love how light this scent is! benefit - Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel Got this as a sample in my Sephora order - and ended up buying the full size because I loved it so much! I have always been intimidated by brow gels, but this one was very easy to work with. I have thin brows; this definitely helped create a fuller look. Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara I was not a huge fan of this mascara, felt like it did nothing to my lashes. Kosas - Color & Light Crème Blush Love this peachy cream blush! Very light, soft and easy to blend. This blush adds a light wash of color and pulls the look together. I find that this shade is very flattering on my skin tone that leans more on the yellow side. I docked off one point since I was not a huge fan of the highlighter. HUDA BEAUTY - Lip Liner in Trendsetter ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is a very cream lip liner that I apply all over the lips for a nice peachy slightly coral color.

The LauraMercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer has been my go to for glowing, hydrated skin lately. It's a sheer formula with little coverage best used to lightly even skin while adding a subtle all over glow. The Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer can be used alone for that flawless dewy "no makeup" look. Or you can use it under your favorite foundation for a radiant glow ✨
Loving all these goodies from Laura Mercier! This combo (Foudation Primer + Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer + Translucent Setting Powder) is just perfect for a flawless non makeup look! I am loving using this tinted moisturizer during the Summer - it gives me enough coverage to hide the imperfections and looks just like my skin but better!

Base options for my pale ladies!
I’m very obviously on the more pale end of the spectrum - previously it had actually been hard to find shades light enough for me that also weren’t low key yellow 🌼 I prefer to wear a lighter base that looks sheer and dewy but also buildable. NARS - Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade Mont Blanc is the base I own that gives me the most coverage but still looks like my skin - especially when blended with fingers! Such a great beginners style base that doesn’t dry me out or settle in lines. bareMinerals - Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is like a mid range coverage and super easy to apply. Opal is a perfect match for me, I just squeeze some all over my face, blend out and I have hydrated, happy and even skin. Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint is my day to day sheer coverage. And when I say sheer I mean absolutely sheer. I enjoy it because it gives just the lightest coverage to help even skin tone, but definitely gives a dewy finish. Glossier. - Stretch Concealer is fantastic to combo with any of these based or blend it out on its own. I wear G12 in both the tint and concealer. My best tip if you have a really light skin tone (all my 00 and 01 girls 😉) is to go with more sheer and buildable products. On my skin, lots of coverage makes me look like Casper the ghost and dries me out 🥴 #base #skintone
Always respect the essentials😀 You will see me talking about very few new face base. I am stuck like chewing gum to these essentials. 💙Lauramercier Candleglow foundation is an all time fav and repurchase. I love Tinted moisturizer from them, the one with SPF but don’t own it currently. I don’t stock up on foundations and concealers. 💙Nars Tinted moisturizer is another one that works perfect! 💙Bareminerals Tinted Gel cream is nice but I don’t have my perfect match. It requires some mixing. 💙IT one is my least favorite of the lot, but has the best SPF number. I need to expand my horizon with foundations. Any suggestions for light weight, light to medium coverage, that looks like skin for dry skin. I need something that has good shade range.

Base makeup products: Chantecaille & YSL
I bought these two recently. They are quite famous for a long time. So here are my thoughts. Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15CHANTECAILLE - Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 It provides SPF 15 protection and creates a natural look. It's really moisturizing and nourishing, with a great touch-up effect. It minimizes the appearance of my pores and only a little amount is needed. However, it only has sheer coverage, so it's more suitable for those with fewer blemishes. YSL Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow YVES SAINT LAURENT - TOP SECRETS Instant Moisture Glow It features great moisturizing, anti-wrinkle, and pore refining effects and brightens skin complexion. This primer is especially suitable for dry skin and people whose makeup cakes easily. However, it doesn't provide UV protection so it can only be used as a primer. Both of these products are great but pricey💸 and are always out of stock.
Clarins VS. Chantecaille, guess who wins?!
CHANTECAILLE - Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 has a thick consistency and provides light-medium coverage with a fresh skin-like (hence the name!) finish. It's quite natural, just like the second skin. But if you want to cover some flaws on your face or improve your complexion, it's NOT a good option. CLARINS - UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Tint SPF 50is super glowy and helps make your skin lighter. Clarins has a creamy texture so it spreads and applies well. I wear it every day all year and it gives me a good light coverage plus SPF 50 to protect my skin. I usually shake it off before applying it to mix the cream and oil. By way of comparison, I need to dab the thick consistency of Chantecaille for application and it's a little greasy for me. I’m not a fan of the greasy feel after using. It does however hydrate. SPF: Clarins has an spf of 50 while Chantecaille has an spf of 15. Clarins provides better protection against UV Price: Chantecaille-$74 for 50ml(really pricey), Clarins-$43.00 for 30ml So, in my case, Clarins is my holy grail makeup staple! Definitely will keep buying this!

Full(ish) Face of Ilia Beauty 😌🌱
So I did it! I splurged for the Super Serum Skin Tint with 40 SPF and I love it☺️ MY first post was about over-coming a few types of acne. Therefore, underneath all of this makeup is some acne scars and a few pimples. This can help estimate how good the makeup actually works! 🌞 Products used: 5/5 for all! • Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint in Diaz • Ilia True Skin Serum Foundation in Texel • Ilia True Skin Serum Concealer in Yucca • Ilia Multi-Stick in Lady Bird • Ilia Illuminator in Polka Dots & Moonbeams • Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara • Ilia Essential Brow Gel in Brown • Clinique Pop Matte in Blushing pop And a TOUCH of • Ilia Clean Liquid Liner I’ve been using the True Skin Foundation since June ‘19 and I’ve tried SEVERAL foundations but I keep coming back to this one that makes you look ever so dewy! ☝🏼 p.s. I think I prefer this Essential Brow over Glossier Boy Brow 🤷🏻♀️
Skincare Powered Makeup: Ilia Beauty Skin Tint
Skincare Powered Makeup: Ilia Beauty - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Glow effortlessly in a range of 18 shades. What is it and what makes it unique? Super Serum Skin Tint is a tinted mineral SPF with 3 main functions: skincare, makeup, and sun protection. It's a one-of-a-kind that features a non-nano zinc oxide formula that protects from UVA, UVB, UVC, blue light, and infrared. The ingredients Hyaluronic Acids, plant-based Squalane, and Niacinamide work together to lock in hydration, plump the skin, evens tone, softens fine lines, among others. The superior formula is silicone-free, fragrance-free, chemical screen-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic, and safe for sensitive skin. What do you get? 1 fl oz for $46. Currently only available in the USA. My experience: When Ilia first sent me this wonderful gift, I received shades ST5 and ST7, both of which were a little too dark for me. I ended up giving ST5 to my sister, and she loves it! I reached out to April to see if I could try shades that more closely matched my skin tone and she so kindly sent me shades ST3 and ST4 which I mix together for the perfect finish. It's lightweight, sinks right into the skin, and barely looks like you're wearing anything! It's dewy to the max and plays well with other skincare products and makeup. I only wear this with a little concealer and I absolutely love it. Sometimes I'll just wear this on its own to make myself just a little more put together and it makes such a difference. I genuinely love this product so much! Another win from Ilia, 5/5!

A foundation for dry + combination skin!
📌My skin type: Dry/ Combination 📌Product information: YSL All-in-One glow foundation 📌Product texture: gel like cream 📌My Experience: It is the most glowy looking foundation I have come across. People with oily skin do not even bother to try. People with combination skin can give it a try but it may not work if did not set with powder. It can be glowing to the point you look wet or oily. Personally I love such glow and I enjoy this foundation to the most. I used a matte coverage concealer with it always as it kinda reduces the dewiness on the skin in a way. Since it is dewy it does not last all night long but marks the 8 hour mark pretty well. I really love this foundation and can count on it forever. 📌Like/ Dislike: LOVE 📌Would I recommend it? YES 📌Rating of the product: 5/5
Some current obsessions on rotation: 🎀 farmacy honey saviour repair salve EVERY time the seasons change...my skin goes to hell. I’m currently dying for all the hydration and this is one of the only products that consistently heals my dry patches! 🎀 YSL Touché eclat all-in-one glow foundation Such a gorgeous medium coverage foundation that looks so radiant! 🎀 Glossier balm dot com This keeps my lips hydrated so much longer than every one of my lip balms. I also put it on my cuticles! And it doesn’t hurt that the packaging is adorable 🤷🏼♀️ 🎀 milk watermelon brightening serum LOVE applying this in the morning! I apply it all over my face after cleansing & vitamin C and I feel like it helps add that extra boost of radiance I’m looking for. Love it!!

I’ve been looking into skin tints that let my natural skin shine through as much as possible and allow my skin to breathe. I went back and forth between first aid and glossier and when I found this at Marshall’s, I decided to give it a go. I love the actual application and the way it sits on my face but hate the nozzle. Half the time I can’t get any product out. But I like it cause I know how much I prefer skin tints to foundation now. And it (can be) fast and easy, perfect for quick mornings before work or school.
Go-to Skin tint
This is my holy grail!!! I’ve been using this for morning and night time. I like something light coverage and this is the product!! It has Goji berries and SPF which is perfect to help your skin from the sun and the goji berry promotes healthy skin. A little goes a long way. Disclaimer: my makeup may seem a little heavy due to that fact that I use concealer that is why it looks full coverage. Other than that this is a light to medium coverage. The product is buildable. #firstaidbeauty #FAB #healthy skin #skintint #holygrail
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 30)
Would you consider a tinted face moisturiser an actual moisturiser? ;-) At least for this product, I would think that it is. The NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 feels more like a lightweight moisturiser than a foundation. This product is targeted for people who want that extra layer of hydration while at the same time an evened out complexion. Tinted moisturisers are mainly for people who have drier skin because you will need all the hydration you can get; oilier skin types wouldn’t benefit as much from this in my opinion. I would think that this product has an exceptionally runny consistency that works in its favour. Usually I don’t like moisturisers to be so runny because I want a little more weight in the product, but having it as more of a liquid than a gel helps blend it into my skin a lot easier. It also has a sheer coverage, so it isn’t going to conceal any zits or pigmentation - it’s just to even out your complexion whilst being moisturising at the same time. I’ve used this for a year now and I have to say that I have some mixed thoughts. While I appreciate the extra moisture my skin needs during its drier days, and the dewy finish is also very nice, I don’t necessarily like how much work I have to put in to blend it in. It often applies quite patchily for me (after using it for awhile) and not as smoothly as other tinted moisturisers in the market. For me, this product attempts to be a 2-in-1 where you can skip the sunscreen and moisturiser and just go straight to your base because this technically covers these steps. However, I much prefer to apply a moisturiser and sunscreen before applying a proper foundation on. I find that this results in a smoother and more even complexion instead of the NARS Tinted Moisturiser. Plus, I also feel that this method moisturises my skin much much more than if I were to just use the NARS tinted moisturiser. While I would recommend this to my friends who are in the market for tinted moisturisers because it does fulfil its purpose of hydrating the skin while evening out your complexion, I don’t necessarily think this product is worth its 45 USD price tag. This is especially so after Colourpop came up with their own tinted moisturiser that I am in love with. Even though the Colourpop one doesn’t have SPF, for 14 USD, you can easily get another affordable sunscreen with the remaining money you save from buying the latter.

Milk Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30
aka Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30 in Honey. This is my favorite everyday tinted mister I er that you absolutely cannot go wrong with. It’s perfect for dry to combination dry skin. It keeps your skin hydrated, with a light tint. It’s super lightweight. It evens out your complexion, but does not cover blemishes and isn’t for you if you’re looking for a high coverage foundation. If you have oily skin this also might not be for you, it is pretty moisturizing and if you are already blessed with plenty of natural oils this will eventually slip off by the end of the day. I do love wearing this for everyday wear, and for days where I’m going for a light hike and still want to look like a put together human being. The SPF 30 is also such a wonderful added factor, knowing that my skin is protected.Milk MAKEUP - Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30

Colourpop Tinted Moisturizer
I recently purchased Colourpop’s newest complexion product, the pretty fresh hyaluronic acid tinted moisturizer. This product is meant to be and in between product that moisturize the skin, and just leaves a light tint rather than a heavy layer of foundation. How does it perform? Personally, I was a little bit disappointed in this product. I have used other tinted moisturizers in the past, and I found them to be a bit more intense in their coverage. This is really just a skin Tint, and a very light one at that. If you are looking for something that has very sheer coverage, this might be a good choice for you. It comes in over 30 shades, and should match any skin tone. I do find this product moisturizing, and it doesn’t take up or crease like a heavy foundation might. This is really reasonably priced at $14 retail. You can’t argue with that! I’ll give this 4/5 stars. I think that this is a really good product. I just wished it had a bit more coverage. If you are looking for some thing sheer and moisturizing, definitely give this a try. One more thing, I wish that this contained SPF. I think it would be much more of a workhorse product, if it contained sunscreen. Just an idea! COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer
