Review - OCC Tint Tinted Moisturizer

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review.  This one is definitely overdue.  I first got my hands on the OCC Tint at last year's NY Makeup Show and i've been meaning to review it for the longest time.  I'm a huge fan of tinted moisturizers and this one does not disappoint!


The formula itself is pretty thin and liquid-like.  I like to apply this tinted moisturizer with a standard foundation brush because it's the easiest way to control the consistency.  I feel like using my fingers would get messy and using a sponge would absorb too much of the thin product.
Foundation Brush
This product gives light to medium coverage but build-able.  It works great on my dry skin.  I do apply a moisturizer underneath though as part of my normal facial routine and then will apply this almost like a lightweight foundation.  I've heard reviews from people with oily skin and they love it too.  Mind you this is not a foundation - it's more for evening out the complexion.  If you want, use a concealer to spot treat but if you want high coverage you may want to try another product.

The good thing about this formula is that you don't need to set it if you don't want to.  However, I do like using it with a bit of powder to add a little bit of brown/warmth to my skin.  I mix Y2 and Y4 for a perfect match.  OCC Founder David Klasfeld matched me himself.
 

PROS
-looks great on, nice semi-matte finish
-feels light on the skin
-nice size container - easy to pack in a kit, travel, or makeup bag
-100% vegan - oil, silicone, paraben, petroleum-derivatives free - great for your skin!
-nice range of colors that is grouped by red and yellow tones - awesome!

CONS
-photographs a little light on camera
-the dispenser at the top tends to get product stuck in it, this means that after a while it will come spurting out causing a mess.  However I just looked at the website, the bottles look like they have a new cap so maybe they fixed it.

I'm thinking about doing my own custom mix of these two foundations into a separate bottle to get my perfect match.  I think I might also try to pick up Y3 since that's my typical match in the airbrush formula.

If you're looking for a new tinted moisturizer, I'd say give this one a try!
This product retails for $25 for 1 fluid ounce at www.occmakeup.com
