Normally I do an eye of the day post on Fridays but the way I’ve looked over the last few days you really wouldn’t have thanked me for pictures. It’s only a cold but basically my makeup has been disintegrating very quickly after application. Yum.
So instead I’m going to review a product that I’ve been quite enjoying for these days when I either can’t or don’t want to wear a full coverage foundation. I love the idea of tinted moisturisers. Sometimes I just want a light coverage that will even things out and most importantly will fade gracefully. Something I can slap on on a weekend and forget about. It doesn’t have to last forever, it just has to fade better than my full coverage foundations do. The only thing that puts me off is that most tinted moisturisers have a very dewy finish which I do not like on me. This however promises to mattify the skin so into my basket it went.
The Witch Anti Blemish Tinted Moisturiser comes in a handy 30ml squeezey tube and costs a mere £5.99 (although it’s currently on offer at Boots for £2.99!). It contains Witch Hazel so it will help to keep blemishes at bay. I haven’t been particularly spotty of late (touch wood) so I can’t say for sure whether does prevent blemishes but I suppose every little helps?
I will start with a negative. The shade range. I have the shade light (obviously) but it also comes in medium and dark. Now with it being a tinted moisturiser and therefore a sheer coverage there is a bit of lea way. You don’t need an exact match. I was still a bit scared when I squeezed this out though. This looks incredibly dark in a swatch. Once it’s on my skin it does blend in and I can get away with it. Just. Any paler than me (and I’m pretty corpse like to begin with) and you will struggle.
For me that’s the only negative though. The coverage is light but it does even things out to the point where I look human. The wonderful thing about though is that it sets to a satin matte finish. It is very flattering, it looks like skin, but it is so much better for my combination skin than most tinted moisturisers.
Do be aware that this does not contain SPF (I wish it did) so you will need to wear a separate one. If you need a little extra coverage this does play very nicely with my Bare Minerals Matte foundation and I’ve been wearing this combination a lot at the weekends. Have you tried anything from the Witch cosmetics range? Any recommendations? X
