e.l.f. Studio Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20

These come in a variety of colours but I have it in the shade Porcelain. They retail at $3/£3.50/€4 but I picked up mine during a 50% off sale for €2 a piece.

What e.l.f. promise:
This lightweight and hydrating formula is breathable and provides anti-aging sun protection with UVA/UVB SPF 20. Achieve even skin tone and naturally radiant skin with this moisturizing sheer tint of color. The smooth formula enhances your complexion with the nourishing key ingredients Aloe, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E

Lightly Blended

I think the packaging on this is quite deceptive because the pack is only filled up halfway with the tinted moisturiser but I still that that at €2, it's good value, and I wouldn't have even minded paying full price for this. It's simple packaging, screw off top as opposed to flip top but that's ok and the product itself is a nice enough consistency that it doesn't just splurt out.

I have had such issues with tinted moisturiser but overall, I really like this, not as much as I adore the Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturiser which would be my all time favourite, but the e.l.f. equivalent is less than one tenth of the price. And don't get me wrong, it is a decent tinted moisturiser no doubt, it provides the lightest coverage but it does even out your skin tone completely and that's why I rate it, also I find it leaves a dewy impression but most definitely not an oily impression and I think it looks really natural. I am uber pale, a MAC NW15/NW20 and I am delighted with the shade Porcelain, i think it's a great match. I have combination skin but it does not leave my skin feeling oily and hydrates my dry areas sufficiently. Plus I love that it comes with SPF20 so we can stay young and undamaged by the harmful UV rays of the sun for a bit longer yet!

I really like it and I think it's a good bargain equivalent for high end tinted moisturisers, I own more expensive tinted moisturisers but they don't tick as many boxes as the e.l.f. Studio offering. I have already repurchased so I have a back up.
