Beauty Mark It! A Tinted Moisturizer

It's no secret: clean, fresh-looking skin is in for Spring. That means it's almost time to toss out heavy Winter foundations in favor of something with a lighter coverage. Tinted moisturizers even out your skin tone while allowing its texture to show. I've been curious about this Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer ever since I found out that it's a pop star's favorite.

But what about yours? Share your choices by bookmarking items from around the web and tag them with the phrase tinted moisturizer. I'll feature your favorites here next Tuesday.

I combine the Clinique Uplighter in Bronze and the Dramatically Different moisturizer to make my own tinted moisturizer. It looks absolutely fab on my skin! :-)

I really like Dermalogica's "sheer tint moisture". It has spf 15 and is a light moisturizer with a decent amount of coverage - wonderful all-in-one product that won't irritate your skin (I have nightmare skin and it works for me!).

The first tinted moisturizer I tried was Burt's Bees and I loved it. I am so sensitive, but this didn't make my face itch at all. Of course, this was before I knew about any of these fancier brands (the only other tint I knew was from Neutrogena), so I will def take a look.

A great primer for redness is the Smashbox PhotoFinish Color Correcting formula.

In the warmer months or for everyday, I use the regular Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer applied on top of her oil-free primer. amybdk - For redness trouble spots (I have roseacea) I mix a tiny bit of Fresh Absolute Concealer with my LMTM and I apply with a brush. I also recommend the primer to help combat redness and for staying power throughout the day.

I just purchased my first tube of Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer last week. So far it's alright. It takes a couple coats to cover the redness around my nose.

I use Stila's light tinted & illuminating tinted moisturizer. i've tried Philosophy's "Give me Shelter," but wasn't a big fan.

I forgot - Stila's Illuminating one (I think it's exclusive to Sephora) is great and the Illuminating concealer is the best.

Bobbi Brown is creamy, coverage is limited. Stila ia the one i usually use. I'll try Laura Mercier when current supply is out.

I beauty marked the new Physicians Formula Organic Wear tinted moisturizer, which I think is fab for coverage and texture. I also like Stila's Illuminating tinted moisturizer. I've tried Laura Mercier's and I'm not impressed with the finish, feel, or coverage. Sephora's is very nice if you like a silicone base (I don't like the feel, personally). I've used Bobbi Brown's Extra tinted moisturizer, and while I like the texture, I find the coverage is lacking, and the price is outrageous. I'm very fair and very dry and I always use a separate moisturizer under any makeup, so I can't comment on the moisturizing properties of these.

Laura Mercier is the best. This is my favorite product by far.

i just bought Benefit You Rebel Light. I really like the light coverage but not to keen on the scent or that my skin feels a little oily near the end of the day. maybe when this tube is done i'll try the laura mercier one.

I love the Laura Mercier. I tried the oil-free one and switched to the regular one since for some reason the oil-free seemed... heavy? It felt strange on my skin. I have pretty oily skin so I figured I'd like the oil-free but the regular actually works just fine and has a better consistency going on my skin.

I'm off to bookmark my Stila tinted moisturizer. That is by far the best that I've tried.
