Top Tinted Moisturizers

published long ago

When the sticky heat of summer is on, the last thing you want is a heavy foundation weighing you down. You’ve already heard that tinted moisturizer is the way to go for sheer, subtle coverage; but how do you sift through them all? We tried dozens of brands to bring you only the best.

FAVORITE! Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Oil Free, $42 at

This super lightweight foundation provides ample coverage and lots of moisture. Girls with dry skin can’t stop singing its praises and, thanks to the oil-free formula, it’s tops for ladies with oily skin too.

The SPF 18 Fluid Tint, $65 at

The folks behind one of the most lust-worthy face creams of our time (ahh, Crème de La Mer!) bring masterful skill to this near-perfect formula. Seaweed and other sea-derived ingredients benefit your skin’s health while providing a sheer, natural and flawless amount of coverage.

Clarins Super Restorative Tinted Cream SPF 20, $75 at

Lightweight illuminating pigments leave you looking perfectly dewy (think J Lo’s signature glow) and antioxidants and plant extracts boost the sun protection factor.

Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Second Skin Nude Makeup SPF 12, $45 at

Giorgio Armani is known for great face makeup (the Luminous Silk Foundation is a cult favorite), and this powdery, but not at all cakey, lightweight tinted moisturizer is no exception.

Korres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 Oil Free, $28 at

This lightweight, oil-free cream provides just the right amount of coverage while simultaneously allowing skin to breathe. And a sheer stroke of genius: It really smells like delicious, mouthwatering watermelon. Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?

Becca Luminous Skin Color SPF 20, $40 at

A thicker moisturizer, with prominent sunscreen and very light coverage, this is the tinted moisturizer for the girl with the perfect skin. This moisturizer comes in a wide array of colors to match any skin tone.

N.V. Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals Active Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, $65

A subtle hint of color, sheer coverage, antioxidant protection and non-chemical SPF make this formula a great choice for low maintenance gals who want to put it on and forget about it. And while you’re forgetting about it, this active formula can actually help repair sun damage, all while preventing it.


Sonia Kashuk Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, $12 at

Subtle color, sun protection, vitamin complex and light reflectors smooth over flaws, protect and nourish skin and help disguise fine lines and wrinkles. The price tag is easy to take, too!

jane iredale, the skin care makeup Dream Tint Moisture Tint SPF 15, $36 at

This mousse-like tint offers great coverage for such a lightweight cream, plus it contains minerals that calm skin and reduce redness.
