E.L.F. Tinted Moisturiser
Advantages: Easy to apply, gives a nice even and lightweight coverage
Disadvantages: None at all unless you want a heavier coverage
I am an avid wearer of foundation even when I wear little else on my face to help me cover up imperfections, smooth over spots and even up my skin tone a bit. I pay alot usually for my foundation from Boots and am happy with the L'Oreal one that I am using at the moment. However in the warmer weather I prefer something a little lighter on my skin and something that contains a UVF/UVB and some SPF to help keep my skin in good condition and also allowing my skin to breath. This product from e.l.f.com (a company that sells an array of make up and make up related products online only) for only £3.50 a tube seemed very worth a trial run lately as I placed this order when I had a 50% off voucher delivered into my email account. Once you use this site once you get lots of offers from them including that and sometimes free delivery (worth £3.50 and if you have to pay this you pay that for as many items as you place per time) and sometimes you even get free gifts. Most items are only £1.50 or £3.50 and this of course at £3.50 seemed a good buy to me for this type of product.
Well the tube is mainly matt black in colour with a matching twist off lid to the bottom of it concealing a small hole and just above that there is a see-through section on there showing your colour option. On the front of the tube and in white writing we are told that it is e.l.f Tinted Moisturizer 'SPF 20, With Aloe, Cucumber And Vitamins A, C & E' and the weight of the product is stated which is 0.7oz (19.8g). On the back of the tube the colour is stated and contact details for e.l.f are given. This is a nice enough looking tube, easy to squeeze the product out of and is decent enough quality.
Using The Tinted Moisturiser:
Well you use this as you would do any moisturiser or foundation type of product and thats to dot some on a clean unmade up face and blend it in. The consistency of this is thin but not watery and feels soft to the touch and of course you can apply it with your fingers, a cosmetic sponge or foundation brush...however you do it this is easily blendable providing of course you opt for the right colour.
This isn't oily, contains no real smell to it and a little of it goes a long way. When on the skin it does feel cooling and comfortable on and it kind of sinks into the skin and dries though not mask like then of course you can apply other cosmetics products if you want to or wear this alone if you prefer.
I do find I need a little pressed or loose powder to help eradicate greasy patches on my face though this stays put for a good few hours, evening up my skin tone and leaving me fresh and smooth faced.
This gives me a nice, natural radiance and containing an Spf of 20 and generally helping me to keep my skin in good condition from the elements (even when the sun isn't shining!) this is a nice lightweight, unsticky and easy to use formulation that I have no problem recommending to anyone! Of course it is simple to remove with your usual make up removing routine and even when removed my skin feels soft, supple and smooth.
Available in 7 different shades, from very light to rather dark and I find the colour swatches shown on the site to be really accurate!
Only available from e.l.f.com
Summary: A great make up buy once again from e.l.f (eyeslipsface)
