Living Nature Clear Lights Tinted Moisturiser In Dawn Lign

I've really been into trying different tinted moisturisers other the past few months. Ever since I tried the Liz Earle Sheet Skin Tint really. I have another one that I'm reviewing today and I'm thinking of doing a comparison between a couple of different ones in the next month or so.

This is the Clear Lights Tinted Moisturiser* from Living Nature and I have it in the lightest shade, Dawn Light.
As usual, when you open the cardboard lid you see "smile" which is always a nice thing to see.

I really like the packaging, that it's all black and fairly compact. I don't like how you dispense the product though which you can see in the photo below. After a few uses it just becomes messy and I always find too much product comes out. It would be much better if it had a pump or even nozzle like the Liz Earle one.

It's a great size as most foundations or tinted moisturisers are 30ml. This one is 50ml so will last longer than usual. For applying, I've been using my fingers as I find this works best. I've tried various brushes but the finish just isn't as nice.

If you're looking for medium to full coverage, this isn't for you. It's has very light coverage so works if you're looking for something to even out your skin tone. Pair this with a good concealer for any blemishes or under eye circles and your done. It's also very light on the skin and feels like your not wearing anything. I hate it when you can feel your foundation throughout the day, not for me. The finish is nice and dewy, perfect for my dry skin and lasts all day. Those with oily skin would need to powder.

It has quite a strong scent, very natural and slightly floral which I can see some people not liking. This hasn't irritated my skin at all though and is something that has grown on me. Once it's on your skin you can't smell it any more.

There isn't a great colour selection with only 3  shades to choose from. I have very pale skin, usually with the lightest shade still being too dark for me. The lightest shade, dawn light, is slightly too dark for me but I can get away with it if I blend the edges well. It also helps that the formula is so easy to work with.

It would work a lot better if there were samples available of each shade to try before buying the full size as it isn't cheap if the colour doesn't match. From other reviews that I've read, the darkest shade isn't really that dark. It probably suits those with an olive skin tone but wouldn't work for darker skins.

This tinted moisturiser costs £17.99, if you can find the right shade for you then it's worth the money.

Have you tried this before? Or any of the Living Nature foundations?

  2. I'm really wondering... Do you prefer this one from Living Nature or the illuminate one? :) I'd like to buy a tinted moisturiser, however I'm scared the illuminating one will have too much shimmer!
