Beautycounter Tint Skin Review

Danielle Bisbano - Sunday, November 16, 2014

I really want to keep this review short and to the point.  I adore words, so this could be hard.  I also really adore this makeup, which makes me not want to shut up.  But here goes.

Tint Skin is Beautycounter’s new, and totally amazing, complexion coverage.  Maybe it’s a tinted moisturizer, maybe it’s a BB cream, maybe it’s a CC cream, maybe it’s a foundation.  I pretty sure I don’t really know and I am positive that I don’t care.  Call it what you want.  I call it brilliant.

This product is the brainchild of Beautycounter’s celebrity makeup artist, and my non-toxic makeup hero, Christy Coleman.  (Here is a link to Beautycounter’s YouTube channel where you can see Christy in action and get some awesome makeup tips!)  Tint Skin was years in the making and all that time has seriously paid off.  Never did I ever imagine loving this product so much but it is literally the best complexion makeup I have ever used.  I am happy that my friends and family and clients have taken my word for it and given it a try because they all feel the same way.  It is just that good.  Your skin actually looks better the longer you have it on.

One of the best things about this product is its versatility.  I thin layer will even out the skin beautifully and then you can apply more to areas that need more coverage.  You will still want to use the (also amazing) Touchup Skin Concealer Pen under your eyes but you really can get away with only using the Tint Skin everywhere else.  Plus the fact that a little goes a LONG way with this stuff.  I still end up squeezing out too much all the time.  It is also a great value at $38.  You are getting 1.35 oz. of product vs. the typical one ounce size for most foundations that also sport a higher price tag. 

Beautycounter has launched two brushes to apply this with.  The Retractable Complexion Coverage Brush and the Flat Complexion Brush.  Personally, I have always preferred a flat brush.  However, after trying all of the brushes and sponges in my kit, I have found that for the Tint Skin, using my fingers is actually my favorite way to apply. 

If you don't want to take my word for it, read what Self Magazine and Harpers Bazaar have to say about this non-toxic wonder.

Here are the shades, shown on the inside of my arm .  In the cooler months, I am Linen (second from the bottom), but if I have a tan I am Sand (third from bottom) or a mixture of Sand and Linen.

 Shades shown above, from top to bottom; Chestnut, Tan, Golden, Honey, Sand, Linen, Porcelain.

 Here is a little cheat sheet to help you choose your shade:

Do yourself a favor and try this gem on your beautiful mug.  Your skin will thank you, you will look absolutely flawless and you will be saving yourself from a boatload of nasty chemicals in the other brands you may be using.  It is a no-brainer.  Trust me.
