In the summer, I like to change up my makeup routine. Since it is so hot here, a good tinted moisturizer is usually what I opt for over foundation. I don’t want a thick layer of makeup in the summer.
And recently, I have tried out a couple of new tinted moisturizers and I wanted to share them with you, if you are also in the market for a new one to try this summer.
To blend all of these products into my skin I either used my fingers or my favorite beauty sponge from Real Techniques. In my opinion the Real Techniques beauty sponge is a lot better than the beauty blender and half the price.
As always, all the opinions expressed here are genuinely my own. Some of these products were kindly gifted to me in PR.
This is the most expensive one of the three products I tried. I chose this particular one because it has SPF 30+ built right in and I like to kill 2 birds with one stone, so to speak. I did really like the coverage of this one, but I have to say it didn’t hold up to the Texas heat. By the end of the day, my skin was super oily and needed to be powdered. I like the way it looked in the morning though. I think it you are on the oilier side, skip this one.
Maybelliene Dream Fresh BB Cream | $8.99
This was a favorite of mine from years ago and I re-purchased it since I was out of a foundation. I remembered loving it, but when I tried it again I didn’t love it as much as before. It left my skin a little TOO dewy! I mean I do love a good illuminated look, but this product just isn’t for me in the summer. I think this product would work better for me in the fall/winter when my skin is a little drier.
Avon Magix Tint | $9.99
This little baby surprised me after I tried it for the first time. I really wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I do. It gives you a natural, your skin, but better look, which I really love. In the words of Bretman Rock you will be living your ultimate ‘fresh faced fantasy’ with this product.
