Venturing Into The Tinted Moisturizer World

I never thought that I would enjoy using a tinted moisturizer. The base products usually have incredibly sheer coverage and a dewy finish- two of my least favorite characteristics! However, I’ve grown tired of my usual full coverage foundation picks as the heat has increased and I decided on picking a tinted moisturizer/bb cream for the summer months. After a few months worth of research I finally decided that the Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer ($43) is the summer “foundation” for me. Although it’s a tinted moisturizer, I find that it has amazing light-medium coverage and a satin finish with a hint of glow, while covering the face with SPF 20. It lasts all day long on my extremely oily skin and leaves my face with a soft focus airbrushed look. It withstands the humidity of a Hawaii summer while providing amazing coverage so this tinted moisturizer gets an A+ in my book!
