Hey, know what time it is?
Tinted moisturizer time!
As mentioned before, I don’t use a lot of makeup on my skin on an everyday basis. But these days, this is my go-to makeup cover; I have been using it for the past one year and am on to my second tube already.
I stumbled onto Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 during summers’ this year, when the weather was hot and I didn’t want to use a whole lot of makeup on my skin. I think this moisturiser is great for the days when you don’t want to spend a lot of time applying foundation. All you’ll need is a small squirt from this tube.
It comes in the standard Bobbi Brown black-coloured tube packaging and is very easy to carry in our handbags. Once again, this one has SPF 15, a great moisturising effect and works wonders on those small dry patches that sometimes appear on the skin.
You don’t need a brush or sponge to apply this product. The consistency is almost creamy and you can easily blend it over your face with your fingertips just like you would apply a face moisturiser. For people with drier skin, Bobbi Brown also has come out with Tinted Moisturiser Balm in SPF 25, which is thicker in consistency and will hydrate your skin intensely . In summers, I tend to have combination skin and hence I went for this moisturiser as it’s water-based and I love the light feeling it gives on my face all day.
I’ve worn this to work as well as for weekend outings and it generally stays on for over eight hours. Even after that long, it didn’t look too banged up, but it’s hard to say if it faded or not since it’s so sheer. But I did notice that my face would still look even and smooth, though you might want to keep some sheer powder handy to touch up the oil and set it in place, but that too only after 5-6 hours of wearing it.
The texture of this tinted moisturiser is watery as you spread it out, but it sets quickly in a dry finish. I think it’s particularly good for oily skin as it’s oil-free. It just means that it wouldn’t feel too rich or emollient once you start shining up. Such moisturizers sometimes tend to run a shade darker and hence I would recommend you swatching it on your face before buying. But keep in mind that the coverage is light and will only cover small or minor blemishes on the skin. One can’t really complain though; after all, this is just a moisturiser with a tint and not a foundation and that is all it is supposed to do. If you are looking for light coverage in foundation then I recommend you read my review on Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF15.
Provides light coverage.
Good staying power.
Low SPF, I would love it if Bobbi Brown did this in SPF 40.
