Dewy Skin + Natural-Looking Coverage from this Cult Foundation?

Share the love!

Ah no makeup-makeup; so great for the kind of lazy girl routine I love so much, so great for the natural look I’m a big fan of.

And the obvious choice for foundation? The Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint.

Glossier Skin Tint

A bit like Kosas’s Tinted Face Oil in its thin texture and ability to apply quickly with fingers, Skin Tint offers the sort of sheer, glowy coverage that dewy skin dreams are made of. No cakey foundation found here!

Perfect for someone like me who hates the feel of a heavy texture on their skin, Skin Tint has a formula much like MAC’s Face and Body – light and dewy.

Glycerin, castor seed oil and corn oil also make this hydrating and moisturising while on (meaning no dry patches and that I can get away with using slightly less moisturiser). While its thin texture makes this very workable, I do find that it also means I need to use quite a bit of this to get a medium coverage going, however.

Ideal for fans of the natural look or those who don’t need a ton of coverage, Skint Tint also makes a great cruelty-free alternative to MAC’s Face and Body (an extremely similar formula to my mind).

What other people have to say

This product has become somewhat of a cult classic, with one customer on the Glossier website saying “The perfect sheer coverage for a more natural look. Works very well for my dry skin, it feels so good to put on!”

While another loves the way this foundation “seems to disappear on your skin”. Another writes “Excellent light coverage that is sheer and breathable.

“Love that my skin can breathe and doesn’t look cakey or creased!!”


The Takeaway

Its dewy finish is perfect for my heavy foundation aversion, but those who prefer more coverage or a matte look may not be such fans.

I also love how super quick and easy this is to apply with fingers or a makeup brush, and the fact that it’s vegan, although I could have done without the alcohol and several silicones, (although neither has ever irritated my skin here).

Great for: Subtle, no-makeup looks.

Not-so-great for: Those who don’t like silicones in their products.

Glossier’s Perfecting Skin Tint is £26 for 30 ml, Glossier UK and $28 for 1 oz/ 30 ml, Glossier US and is available in 12 shades
