This or That: mark Get A Tint Tinted Moisturizer and mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint

I think we’ve established that we all want cheap right now. Who doesn’t love a good deal even when the economy is good.

Check out a little of This and That from Mark Cosmetics to get your beauty on for alot less!

You could go with this:

I adore Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Creamy, nicely tinted, an SPF 20 keeps me clamoring back for more please but it does have a $42 USD price tag eep!

If you’re not wanting to shell out that much cash why not go with that:

mark Tinted Moisturizer is $8 USD contains 1.6oz of product (that’s an oz more than Laura’s) and has an SPF of 15. You’re forgoing a little of the SPF but the size and price sure is right.

Bobbi and the Muse? BBF forevers! The Muse is loving Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek but even I admit it’s tiny for $22 USD. You could go with this:

It’s ok if you’re not wanting to fork over that $22 bucks. You can snag a mark Just Pinched Cheek Tint for $6 which is slightly bigger and is virtually the same product as Bobbi’s version. Go with that:

A little of this, a little of that makes for a happy beauty junkie! Hope these options save you a little money!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Okay, so I tried the mark. tinted moisturizer and I hated it! Not because of the formula, but because it turned my face orange. So sad. But yay for being pale! 😉

    However, love the cream blushes like crazy. They’re great. I’ve only used Cheeky and Berry, but both look great depending on what I’m wearing or what gloss I’m using.

      ooo no mollie seriously? that’s bad. Try the new Urban Decay one, it’s great!

      Awesome on the blushes though 😀 at least one thing worked out!

    I bought the Mark Just Pinched Cheek Tint in “Sunny” thinking that it would give me a sun kissed glow or bronzed effect. However, I was disappointed by how little color this product actually gives you and how small the packaging is.
    Having ordered this from a catalogue, I was shocked to see how small it is. It looked bigger advertised. The tube holds only 4 grams, this is the exact same amount as for a regular lip balm.

    The blush goes on very smooth, and it feels like lip balm too, leaving a bit of a color and shine. It is ordorless although has a consistency of lip balm and after reading the ingredients, it has some oils and beeswax as well, which are commonly used in lip products.

    I expected that just a little would go a long way, perhaps I got the wrong color, but the Sunny tint barely shows and I am fair skinned.

    I recommend this for someone who does not have oily skin and wants some very subtle color, something easy to carry around and apply outside.

    I bought this in Canada for 7$ and I find it rather expensive considering how little I benefited from the product. For any Canadians familiar with the Joe Fresh clothing/cosmetic line, they make a great cheek tint in the exact same format, with more colors, that actually leave a lot of tint with just a dab and those cost only 4$.

      Sorry to hear that you were so disappointed! I didn’t really like it either 😛 Really didn’t do much for my cheeks!
