SPF Yourself: mark Get a Tint Shimmer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15.

SPF Yourself is a series of posts featuring products that contain a sunscreen, or SPF, in them. Not only sunscreens, but lotions, facial moisturizers, eye creams, foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzers, hair care and more will be featured. Only the best in beauty with SPF!

When the heat of summer rolls in, the last thing I reach for is a heavy, full-coverage foundation. Instead, I whip out my concealer du jour and tinted moisturizer. This, of course, also means: time to experiment! My newest trial went to mark Get a Tint Shimmer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 ($12).  Launching this July, mark Get a Tint Shimmer Tinted Moisturizer promises to be a lightweight and oil-free, shimmering tinted moisturizer that provides a healthy looking glow in an instant. This is an update on mark’s classic Get a Tint, as the shimmer is perfect for summer to give skin a radiant, natural glow.  Available in four shades: ivory/nude, buff/natural, honey/golden, almond/mocha (same shades as the original Get a Tint).

I admit, when I hear that a face product has “shimmer”, I worry about the dreaded glitterbomb effect. I like to avoid a super matte base as it can look a bit flat or chalky, but there’s a fine line when it comes to sparkles. I am pleased to report that mark Get a Tint Shimmer Tinted Moisturizer passes spectacularly! No glittery mess here. What’s even better? This tinted moisturizer leaves your skin with a lovely dewy glow that doesn’t smudge off on clothing or disappear in a few hours. I’m calling this one a winner!
