Product Review: Stila Sheer Colour Tinted Moisturiser


As I wrote my primer post the other week I started reconsidering my make up regime.  At weekends I use Chanel Mat Lumiere, Body Shop Nature's Minerals during the week.  But lately they haven't been working for me.  I've been getting patchy and hating it.  Something had to change.

I decided to give tinted moisturiser a go, and I'm loving it.  I bought Stila's moisturiser in Medium and it matches me perfectly, blends in seamlessly to my skin and gives an even appearance all day.  It's fragrance-free and you get a hefty 50ml.  Compare this to Chanel's 30ml and you're getting a lot of product for a fraction of the price.

Described as "perfection in a bottle", here's what Stila have to say:

"Stila Tinted Moisturiser is an instant skin-illuminator, combining a tinted moisturiser with SPF 15, and provides barely-there coverage.

Enriched with sweet almond oil and other hydrating nutrients to quench thirsty skin, this featherweight formula is a great alternative to foundation.  Applies easily and without streaking for long-lasting coverage."

I don't tend to stick to one product with my make up regime, but for now this moisturiser is working wonders.  I no longer come home with half my make up worn up.  My one bug bear?  I wish the coverage was ever so slightly heavier.  It does give an even appearance, but not full enough for my liking on problem areas by the end of the day.

You can get this moisturiser here.  I bought mine for the bargain price of £3.70!  What are your thoughts on tinted moisturiser?


  1. Ooooh I really want to get a tinted moisturiser for summer. I have never found a foundation that sits nicely on my skin and doesn't feel heavy. The prob I have is most tinted moisturisers are too dark for me, even the lightest shade as I am so pale!

  2. Thanks for sharing, I never even knew Stila made primers. :)
