Today I am going to be reviewing the Jemma Kidd Tinted Moisturiser. I picked this up in a discount beauty store and although it has been discontinued you may still be able to get it online so I thought it was worth sharing my opinions on it. As you probably know I really like a light coverage base so I am always interested in trying out tinted moisturisers the problem I find is that a lot of the drugstore ones come in a limited shade range and are often too dark for my pale skin.
Firstly let’s talk about the packaging it comes in a tube but what I really like about this is that it comes with a pump. Usually these types of products come in a tube but don’t have a pump and for me a pump is essential on any type of foundation product as it makes it less messy and you don’t waste as much product. Due to it coming in a tube it is more travel friendly as there isn’t a glass bottle which could get smashed (although this has never happened to me). I like the colours of the packaging a simple black tube with a pretty pink floral pattern.
I use either my Real Techniques Buffing Brush or the Cheek Brush to apply it to my face. Sometimes I use a makeup sponge as well as I really like the finish it gives. I never use my fingers to blend base products as I prefer to uses brushes.
I got the shade 01 Porcelain which I believe is the lightest shade. Unlike other tinted moisturisers I have tried this one isn’t very orange. However it is very yellow toned which means sometimes it doesn’t look right on my skin as I usually choose something that has more of a pink toned. I can make the colour work for me though. Due to getting it from a discount store there weren’t any testers and they had a limited amount of shades.
I really like the formula of this it feels very light on my skin and not at all cakey. I’d say the coverage is light to medium although due to the colour I don’t tend to build the coverage. It gives a really natural finish that allows your skin to breath.
Overall I do like this and if the shade was slightly better I would wear it more often.
