I previously reviewed Beautycounter’s tinted moisturizer, Dew Skin, which you can read about here. There, I talked all about how I discovered Beautycounter and why I decided to try some of their products. I won’t write the whole thing over again in case you’ve already read it, but an abbreviated version goes something like:
pregnant+taking care of myself=trying safe cosmetics.
And part of my exploration into safer cosmetics has been using Tint Skin for four months.
How I have used it
Tint Skin is Beautycounter’s only foundation, and so far it has worked well for me. I have only worn it by itself a couple of times. Usually, I wear it layered on top of Dew Skin. Now, I didn’t think of doing this on my own. Someone else suggested it, and at first, I thought it sounded like too much. I usually wear tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation, not both at the same time. I was worried that the two together would be very thick or heavy feeling on the face. But it has actually been a pretty great combination!
The Dew Skin evens out the complexion and ensures that the Tint Skin goes on smoothly. With the two together, I have just the right level of moisture and just a smidge more coverage than I would have if I wore Tint Skin alone. Wearing Dew Skin underneath also allows me some SPF coverage which Tint Skin lacks.
I have been using Bobbi Brown’s Full Coverage Foundation Brush to apply Tint Skin and this has been working well. The foundation doesn’t set as quickly as some others, like Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation, so I can spend some time blending it in.
How it performs
Tint Skin provides medium coverage and dries to a nice, creamy finish which I personally love. I have always preferred a creamy-looking complexion. To me, it makes the skin look soft, and Tint Skin gives that kind of finish. So I am happy! But if you are looking for either a matte finish foundation or a dewy finish foundation, then you are going to be disappointed.
Tint Skin comes in a 1.35 fl. oz. tube. I am a little sad that it doesn’t have the same type of pump dispenser as Dew Skin, but so far I haven’t wasted any of it, which is good. It retails for $41, but you can get it for less if you become a Band of Beauty member (Beautycounter’s membership club) or a consultant.
Currently, Tint Skin comes in 8 shades. I am fair, but not THAT fair, and I wear the lightest shade. So if you are super fair, then Tint Skin might not work for you.
