I have ignored the blog for a while as I’m so busy that I don’t have time to even wear make-up.
Sisley Tinted Moisturizer became my best friend, as it evens out my skin-tone and it is quickly to apply. It comes in a 40ml plastic tube. There are four shades available – I have swatches the shade #03 Beige cuivre (which is pretty orange, but could work on warmer skin tones, as there isn’t much pigmentation), but I use #01 Beige, which matches my skintone. The moisturizer is, as everything Sisley, pretty expensive – it retails for around $100.
This is pretty light tinted moisturizer. The coverage isn’t very great – it is almost non-existent, but in spite of that it manages to even-out skin tone. It sinks well into the skin. I have the lightest shade 1 beige which seems very dark in the tube, but manages to adapt to my lighter skin-tone.
As for its moisturising abilities – this is very moisturising. It managed to repair my skin which is a bit dried out because of the cold weather. It didn’t clog my pores or cause breakouts. A tiny amount is enough to cover whole face.
The moisturizer has a weird scent – very similar to Sisley Ecological compound, but the smell disappears quickly.
Now, on to the bad sides. Since I have oily skin, sometimes (when it’s hot outside) it makes my skin even more oilier, so I need to blot it several times a day. I personally don’t like the fragrance. It is also very expensive and doesn’t contain any sunscreen. If I pay such an obscene amount of money, I expect it includes sunscreen.
All in all, I like a tinted moisturizer that is indeed a tinted moisturizer, because a large majority of tinted moisturizers today are in fact a light coverage moisturizing foundations.
