The sales rep persuaded me that this was a tinted moisturizer with a pink undertone.

However, over my skin, it works only as a moisturizer that does smooth out my skin texture, though does nothing in terms of coverage.

I mean it just adjusts to my skin color, moisturizes it, smoothes and doesn’t dry it out. It’s really good because usually, foundations tend to define all the flaking patches on the skin, as well as wrinkles, making skin appear older.

On the other hand, I still wanted it to be color-correcting, whilst here I have only moisture.

So, it’s only up to you to decide whether you need this moisturizer or not.

At first, it may appear too white but it sets within a minute and then disappears.

The product is infused with SPF, which isn’t high, only 18 opposed to my trusty from Dior that has SPF 50. But still, I’m glad that it has sunscreen.

Unlike a cushion, it has a bigger size and will go a longer way. It’s handy and durable. You won’t have to repurchase again and again.

I also tried the shade #02 but when I was testing it out, it seemed to be too dark and yellow. Too bad with the shades.

Don’t expect any coverage from this product. But go for it if you need moisture!
