If you've always liked the idea of tinted moisturizers, but felt like you still needed some additional coverage, Laura Mercier has the answer in her fantastic new Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen .
Her famous tinted moisturizer has been reformulated into a creme, which is smooth, creamy and silky, yet extremely lightweight on the skin.
It provided hydration and smooth, even coverage. Another bonus - it contains a lot of product - after almost a month using frequently, it barely looks like live used it!
I have combination skin, and this gave me the moisture I needed on my drier areas, like my cheeks, while not giving my t zone a oily or greasy look. It wore beautifully during the day, keeping my skin moisturized and the product not smudging or rubbing off. The finish is matte with just a hint of dewiness.
On most days I used in combination with a moisturizing primer and I applied with either the sponge (it's OK, and will do for touch ups during the day), or with a makeup brush, which gives a slightly better finish, in my opinion.
Mocha (pictured, above) was a good color match for me now, coming off of my summer tan, as well. This shade has a nice balance of red and yellow undertones.
If you like natural, "no obvious makeup" - but still polished look, don't need a lot of additional coverage and want sun protection, this is winner all around. With this tinted moisturizer, eye makeup and a slick of lip color and you're good to go all day for office, weekends and travel. - RLB
