Oh hello you gorgeous thing! That’s right I’m talking to you Bare Minerals Advanced Protection SPF 20 Moisturizer ($30)! You’re such a cheap tinted moisturizer with a luxurious formula, I’m terribly impressed with you for Summer wearing and tearing.
I’ve been using Advanced Protection SPF 20 Moisturizer the past two weeks and I must say I’m pretty impressed with the formula. Why are tinted moisturizers so damn costly from higher end brands? I love this nice and neat $30 generously sized TM from Bare Minerals so much I’m going to recommend you try it out for yourself.
Take a look!
I’ve never tried Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer so I thought I’d give it a test prior to trying the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream as it would be easier to compare the two formulas.
Companies are a little guilty of switching around the names of their Tinted Moisturizers and simply adding “BB Cream” to new packaging so I wasn’t sure if Aveeno was doing the same thing. Both Covergirl and Olay have done this recently…!
After I review Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer I’ll follow up with my review of the Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream to compare the two formulas.
Here’s my thoughts on the tinted moisturizer formula and I’ll follow up shortly with my thoughts and comparisons to the BB Cream formula!
The Josie Maran Pure & Simple 4 Piece Argan Skincare Ritual QVC Today’s Special Value launches tomorrow on the Q.
This is an exceptional value particularly if you’re a fan of Josie’s products as you’re getting four full size products for a great price.

As you know Laura Mercier recently introduced her popular tinted moisturizer in a new creme compact.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen ($45) comes in a convenient compact which makes it easy to carry your coverage with you for touch ups on the go.
The lightweight formula is an ideal pick for Summer and will work well into the cooler weather for those of us with drier skin.
Let’s take a look!
Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer comes in two formulas one of which is oil free. I’ve heard a ton of folks compare both formulas and say they are the same exact thing.
However, I’m here to say they do differ!
Shiseido Anessa Face Sunscreen BB SPF 50+ PA+++ is a very welcome addition to the Anessa Sunscreen Collection in my opinion. Being such a big fan of Shiseido Anessa for Summer protection, I was very excited they decided to release a high level protection sunscreen with a tint.
This hybrid formula offers a whooping SPF 50 as well as coverage.
Let’s take a look!
Tinted moisturizer season is on the horizon! I’m not sure I feel like Tinted Moisturizer is the lightest coverage option in the Summer as the formula is always pretty creamy and hydrating. The hydrating factor is what bothers me as if you don’t set with powder it has the potential to feel and look greasy as the day progresses.
I was a little worried about 100% Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer as it is one of the most creamiest tinted moisturizers I’ve tried.
Take a peek!
Hey, know what time it is?
Tinted moisturizer time!
You might be living in a cold environment but us New Yorker’s are living the dream. It’s been Spring for the past month or more with temperatures that may go up to 80 this week.
Seriously, it’s pandemonium! The world may end soon.
Time to haul out the TM and get with the lightweight coverage and who better to do the job than Miss Bobbi Brown herself.
As you know from my prior reviews, geoGirl is actually turning out quite alright. The line will be sold at Walmart this Fall and is actually made for a younger market (they are targeting 8 to 12 year olds) but some of you have already tried it out yourself and are enjoying it and I know I’ve tested a few products out and was pretty surprised that a line marketed for little girl’s is actually quite nice.
I was fiddling around with geoGirl F2F Face 2 Face Moisture Tint SPF 15 and I gotta say, again, I like it. It’s on par with any higher end tinted moisturizer you already own plus it doesn’t have parabens. Sadly, I was sent a way deeper shade so I couldn’t get a perfect feel for the product but my testing did lead me to believe this could be a win.
Check it out and if you tried it do add your two cents in!
As we head into Fall I really have to remind myself that Summer isn’t quite over yet and we’ll still see some warm weather well into September so tinted moisturizer? It’s so in on!
Fusion Beauty Prime Results Tinted Moisturizer has graced my collection for the past two or three months and its actually become a staple for daily use due to its incredibly moisturizing formula, my dry skin likey!
Let’s take a look!
I’m on the hunt I’m after you…….I think that was a Duran, Duran song. I’m actually on a hunt for lighter coverage. As the Summer and the warm weather gets closer I want to start indulging in some lighter bases. I have a slew already but I like to check out all the new goodies so I can tell you all about ‘em!
Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 was on my hit list first. I was out with my best friend a few weeks ago and we literally did the rounds at Macy’s stopping everywhere and picking up base product after base product. First Clinique, followed up by Chanel, Shiseido….they all have the same packaging! Dude!
Anyway let’s have a look at Moisture Surge TM and see what the deal is.
At a 1.5 oz size and $42 my tinted moisturizer of choice from Laura Mercier is pretty costly. Better deal?
The new Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer at 1.7 oz, $38, and oh by the way an SPF 30 instead of Laura’s 20.
A week or two ago QVC had the Josie Maran Argan Oil 5 Piece Color Collection on sale. Sadly it’s now sold out but I thought I’d give you a quickie glance of the items included just in case it comes back in stock soon!
This isn’t a full review of the items. I’ll be breaking them up and reviewing each individually as I believe as Spring gets nearer you’ll probably be able to buy them this way anyway (and most are already available on QVC for purchase on their own). Needless to say the gloss, blush stick, and Argan Oil are already available for purchase on their own but those too will each get their own detailed review.
For now here’s the set, JUST IN CASE, it should make a reappearance on QVC as at least you’ll know what you are getting into!
You might not yet be thinking about it but you’ll soon be hauling out your TM (tinted moisturizer) when the Spring weather hits. I seem to wear TM alot in Spring dunno why but I’m guessing it has something to do with wanting to embrace a more lighter makeup look after a dreadful Winter filled with thicker base products!
E.L.F. Studio Tinted Moisturizer is the newest offering from the brand and a mere $3. Does it live up to say legendary TM’s such as Laura Mercier?
I swear it’s the irony of my life that I sit in my office all bloody week and watch perfectly beautiful days go by but when the weekend arrives it rains. WTH Mother Nature! Seriously?
I feel Summer is already over because it rains almost every single weekend. Where the heck is the fun in that?
Regardless, I’m still all about lighter, fresher coverage for Summer and Urban Decay Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer is the awesome for it!
