I have tried every foundation on the market from all the inexpensive ones sold at Walmart like Maybelline, Cover Girl, etc., to more expensive ones sold at high-end department stores like Clinique. I really liked the Clinique brand, but got frustrated when I spent $35.00 dollars for a bottle of foundation, only to discover it wasn't the right shade when my skin changed colors a few weeks later.
So when I read about Sonia Kashuk Radiant Tinted Moisturizer from Target, that cost only $13.69 a tube, I decided to give it a try.
At first I hesitant. I have very oily skin and rarely use a moisturizer. Even if it's an oil-free moisturizer, if I use it, I break out. But at $13.69 a bottle, what do I have to lose?
The first shade I bought ended up being too light for me (it was summer at the time and my skin was darker), so I went back and bought two more shades: Tan and Beige. I change shades depending on the time of the year. In the winter I wear the Linen shade, fall and spring I wear the Beige shade, and in the heart of the summer I wear the Tan shade.
Here are three un-touched-up photos so you can see the coverage of this tinted moisturizer. I am 53 years old and my age is mostly starting to show with wrinkles under my eyes, neck, and jowl line. I also have large pores in my T-Zone. Other than an occasional break out (can you believe I still get pimples at 53!), I have pretty good skin.
This picture was taken this past summer wearing the "Tan" Shade of Sonia Kashuk Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. I do put a loose powder on over the moisturizer, plus bronzer and an illuminator. I'll share more about the importance of using an illuminator as one ages in next week's Beauty Post.
My next picture was taken in the fall when I was in St. Augustine, Florida. I am wearing the "Beige" Shade of Sonia Kashuk Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. I wore this make up my entire week of vacation, and never got burned by the sun.
And the last picture was taken just a few weeks ago where it is now winter. In this photo I am wearing my lightest shade "Linen". There are still two other shades available, one much lighter called "Fair" and a "Honey" shade. I have not tried those shades as I think the "Fair" shade would be too light for me, and the "Honey" too dark.
As you can see in all three photos it definitely looks like I have a foundation on. The coverage is good, yet, there is never a color change or a jaw line separating my face from my neck. The look is very natural, yet it gives me the coverage I desire! No large pores or red splotches showing! And the SPF and moisturizing factor is an extra plus for me. Also, at only $13.69 a bottle, I can afford to buy three shades and swap them out as the seasons change.
I also wanted to let you know, that this is not a sponsored post. I did not collaborate with Sonia Kashuk or Target to do this post. I just wanted to share with my readers what make up I use and why I use it. I hope to do a Beauty post every Thursday...if I can keep thinking of new topics to share! If you have any topics you would like me to cover, I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
