Have I told you yet that I love using a tinted moisturizer versus a foundation in the summer? Well, only about a hundred times, or what feels like that anyway. I am a huge fan of tinted moisturizers and have been discovering so many new ones this year. I hope you have enjoyed my reviews and have come to find one (or a few) new tinted moisturizers to try.
My latest discovery is from Fusion Beauty, called Prime Results Tinted Moisturizer. Like all of the Fusion Beauty products, this one is formulated to pull double-duty, which it does plus so much more.
Like the name suggests, this is a primer, tinted moisturizer and sunscreen in one. I liken it to the new onslaught of beauty balms, though this was created before these such products hit us here in the states. The formula covers better than an average tinted moisturizer. Most tinted moisturizer cover very lightly and require a little bit of concealer or extra product to cover areas such a freckles, blemishes, and hyperigmentation. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Primer Results covered these problem areas, while not looking or feeling heavy. The overall look I got was a more sheer wash of color, but more on the medium coverage side.
This tinted moisturizer also has a primer that is in the formula, along with the extra moisturizing properties. You see, this product incorporates two approaches to skin moisturization: flash-hydration for instant results, and prolonged-hydration for continuous quenching over time. On top of that, it contains the SPF of 15.
Fusion Beauty has done nicely with the shades that seem very forgiving to a lot of skin tones. It comes in Ivory, Sand, Carmel and Golden Beige. Sand is the most popular color and would do well for most light-medium skin tones. I am using Golden Beige to blend in with my summer golden faux-glow, but plan on incorporating Sand in the mix when I opt for a tinted moisturizer in the colder months, on the weekend, perhaps.
Prime Time Results Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 can be purchased at Sephora, Nordstrom and HSN for $40.00. It is on the more expensive side in terms of comparing it to other tinted moisturizers alone, but the results speak for themselves, and I wouldn't hesitate on the splurge.
