Bare minerals state their complexion rescue tinted moisturizer is a ‘ultimate 3 in 1 multi tasking’ product, a skincare, makeup and SPF. I haven’t heard of that before!
This tinted moisturizer ‘combines hydrating skincare benefits with radiant, natural looking coverage’, plus the SPF 30, it really is a multitasker!
It provides a buildable coverage capable of going from light to medium coverage which shouldn’t feel heavy or tight.
It apparently has been proven to boost skins hydration by 215% in just a week! As you can tell this moisturizer does sound like a great thirst quenching product for those skins which are often dry. So how good is it? Read on to find out!
The tinted moisturizer comes in 20 shades which I’m actually quite surprised.
I wouldn’t expect a tinted moisturizer to be this varied as usually a couple basic shades are said to be enough to cover a range of skin shades and tones, which they never do actually.
I sometimes struggle to find the perfect match at the first few tries!
Anyways back to the product, this moisturizer covers a range of complexions from fair with neutral undertones to deep tones with warm undertones.
The closest matching shade for me I thought would be ‘suede’ which is for medium with cool undertones however I actually went ahead and got ‘buttercream’, made for light skin tones with neutral undertones.
This shade was recommended by the brands website for my tone. I found it did fit well with my skin.
The formula is gel like mixed with some creaminess. It has a good consistency, not too runny or too thick. Which makes apply it a breeze.
Bare minerals suggest applying this moisturizer using a face brush, I went against this, deciding to apply and gently blend with my very own fingers! I used this method when going for a light coverage.
However if I was to aim for a medium coverage then a brush probably would be the best option!
So how was application? Overall it was really easy to apply and blend. I added a few dots of the formula on my face and then dabbed it into my skin. I liked that it wasn’t heavy at all so they weren’t lying when bare minerals said it’s ‘lightweight’!
As you may know tinted moisturizers or any light coverage formulas aren’t really as long-lasting as their counterparts, like full coverage foundations.
They probably stay around for up to 3-4 hrs if they’re of good quality, before needing touch ups.
So how long did this tinted moisturizer last till it needed reapplying?
Well for me, who has a combination skin, this foundation did pretty well! It stayed put for around 3 hours before I spotted some uneven colouring and had to whip it out again!
