Skincare Sunday

January 27, 2019

Today has consisted of sleeping in, watching my nieceโ€™s basketball game, brunching at @monellompls (which was delicious!) going to the Minneapolis Boat Show, drinking at @508mpls and attending the @timberwolves game at @targetcentermn! Iโ€™m telling you that because itโ€™s -2 degrees and weโ€™ve frozen our butts off outside and sweat like crazy walking through the Minneapolis skyway system – which all really put the @milkmakeup Sunshine Skin Tint with SPF 30 ($42 for .7 ounces at @sephora) to the test!
What it claims:
๐Ÿ”˜ Weightless, preservative-free liquid foundation that hydrates skin while providing buildable, natural-looking coverage and SPF 30
๐Ÿ”˜ Infused with a blend of avocado, mandarin, grapeseed, and olive oils, it delivers ultimate nourishment and hydration that leaves skin feeling fresh and light
๐Ÿ”˜ Vegan, cruelty-free and free of preservatives
My experience:
๐Ÿ”˜ I used a combination of Light and Sand today. Yesterday, I used a combination of Fair and Light. Today, the color match was much better.
๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป The shade range is abysmal. Only eight (8) are currently being offered.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป I used an @ecotools brush (which I love!) to apply it and it nearly disappeared when I blended out the first layer. However, I was able to slightly build it up in my trouble area – the redness in my cheeks.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป It was very hydrating feeling and gave me a nice glow.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I have been wearing it for nearly eleven (11) hours and Iโ€™m impressed that itโ€™s still on my face with how moisturizing it is.
๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป However, because itโ€™s so hydrating, it was sticky to the touch in some areas all day and looked more and more dewy (borderline greasy) throughout the day.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป The upside of it being so hydrating is that it didnโ€™t cling to any dry patches.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Even though the coverage was very light, it still made me feel covered enough to consider myself public ready.
My verdict?
This product has a lot of upsides. Hydrating, enough coverage for a light makeup day, SPF 30. However, where it loses me is the price. To be comfortable with the look, I needed to use quite a bit. Itโ€™s spendy and contains less product than most foundation. A great concept, but I wonโ€™t be purchasing the full size.
If you use them, whatโ€™s your favorite tinted moisturizer?
