    I use it everyday!

    Bottom Line: I use this tinted moisturizer everyday, and it covers pretty well, but I still need to use concealer and a powder with it, because it doesn't have exactly enough coverage. Full Review: So, I really do like this product. It was one of the first of Urban Decay that I had used. I really only got it because it was super cheap on HauteLook and I desperately needed a new foundation, or som...read moreething. The thing I LOVE about it though, is that I barely moisturize my face anymore, because I wear this everyday, and it keeps my skin from being dry. It doesn't cause me to breakout, and I have pretty sensitive skin, so this is a super plus for me. My one big problem with this, is that there isn't as much coverage as I would like to have in my daily product, but I understand that it is only but a tinted moisturizer, so it doesn't have a lot of coverage. The one thing it kind of helps me cover, which pretty much nothing else does, are my acne marks. I have very light skin, and I have these two awful, and noticeable dark, brown acne scars on my chin, and the tinted moisturizer covers them quite well. I find myself applying this with a makeup sponge and dabbing it on, because I still haven't gotten to the mall to get a stippling brush. I think that once I begin using a stippling brush, the product will have more coverage, which I am looking forward to. The stippling brush will give it a more airbrushed effect, which I hope to achieve. The other products I wear along with this to cover my redness, acne scars, and occasional pimple, are a revlon spa concealer used on only the trouble marks and under my eyes, and a dusting of covergirl pressed powder. I hate cake, and this application of 3 products leaves my skin pretty well covered, and natural looking. My face has a very uneven tone, so it is very important to make it even, which this product does alone, and I like that. Also, many people complain about the pump and the bottle design, but I personally like it a lot. The pump is easy to use, and I hate bottles like the new design is. This may sound very stupid, but because of the bottle change, I may not find myself getting this product again. I cannot deal with bottles with squirty things on the end. I prefer a pump over anything else. Thankfully, the product takes quite a long time to run out, so I still have a good amount left. Also, I got a darker tone for summer, and since summer is approaching, I should be able to use this until christmas, or at least fall. I really like this product, and I think that it is worth getting. If you go to my profile, you will see that I posted a picture of it, because I liked it so much. Since this is probably going to no longer be a product of mine that I use in 6 or so months, I decided to stock up on the Stila sale at HauteLook for their foundations, because I didn't want to end up liking the product a lot and not being able to keep buying it, like this product. — 2 years, 7 months ago

    Review subject

    The pump spits out more product than necessary. It's my first time using a tinted moisturizer, but I did not expect it to wipe off at every little touch. It is also thicker than the foundation I used prior to this. Coverage wise, it did even my skin tone out--even though I picked the wrong shade, I just ended up looking tan. Smell is acceptable and product is not greasy. — 3 years, 1 month ago

    Good but not great

    I like this alot as a primer, it's almost too light to use alone as a moisturizer.. great coverage tho, a little tacky when first getting used to it.. — 3 years, 3 months ago

    Great for summer.

    This is great if you want a sheer color to even out your skin tone in the summer. It's light and blends easily, and looks absolutely flawless if you set it with powder. Also, if you have dry skin like I do, this could be very helpful. I usually NEVER set my makeup with powder, because it makes me skin feel tight. I never have that problem with this. My only gripe is the packaging; the pump is hard...read more to control at times, and you can't tell if you're running low on product. Either way, very nice tinted moisturizer. — 4 years, 2 months ago

    Love Urban Decay, but was not happy with this product

    I ordered this for summer because I was looking for something that would give me a bit of coverage with an SPF, but that wouldn't be as heavy as a foundation. I found it to go on pretty smoothly without any streaking and I liked the tinted coverage. However what I found was that it seemed to break me out (and by that I mean blemishes). After figuring out that it was this product that was causin...read moreg it, I took a break from it and let the blemishes clear and then tried again....once again I broke out. I am totally bummed by this because otherwise I liked it, and the fact that it is not exactly inexpensive! I obviously will not by this product again. :( — 4 years, 2 months ago
