Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint
I’m always game for a new foundation or tinted moisturizer and when I saw this around in Sephora, I just had to try it out 🙂 With a tinted moisturizer, one of the points that annoys me would be the lack of coverage as well as having it leave me with greasy skin. I’m actually quite certain that I’ve found a tinted moisturizer that has reached HG status in my arsenal: having medium to full coverage, this product definitely stands out from the crop because the coverage is just so effortlessly built from medium to full. There’s really no need to layer it on because I just needed a couple swatches of spot concealer for my pesky acne scars and slight undereye circles and I was ready to go 🙂
In terms of the packaging, I love how it’s in a travel-friendly squeeze tube and it’s super easy to squeeze out exactly the amount that I need 🙂 In terms of application, I squeezed out a pea-sized amount and dotted it onto my face before buffing it out with a beauty blender and a foundation brush on a separate occasion — both application methods worked like a dream 🙂 The product feels creamy, hydrating and smooth and its cushiony texture makes the skin look smooth as it blurs out fine lines and enlarged pores (albeit I did my due diligence with my primers and everything :)). The end result is perfectly even skin with a slightly glowy natural finish.
In addition, formulated without any parabens, sulfates and phthalates, there is also no added fragrance with this tinted moisturizer and my sensitive, combination-dry skin hasn’t gotten any irritation with this product 🙂 As well, the product is formulated with an advanced form of hyaluronic acid that helps disguise deep wrinkles throughout the day and its pearlescent pigments leaves my complexion with an unbelievable glow. Even though this has considerable coverage, this does not feel heavy at all. In fact, my skin actually feels like it can breathe, even on days when I wear it from dawn until dusk. I feel that the lasting power with this tinted moisturizer lasted quite well from 5am to 9pm for me as although I looked a little glowy at the end of the day, I actually liked that look as my skin looked healthy and dewy 🙂
All in all, this is a wonderful option for someone looking for the ease of using a tinted moisturizer that has the coverage and performance of a luxurious foundation. To add to this, this product also comes in a variety of shades that will suit a range of beauties out there 🙂 I can’t recommend it enough <3
