When the weather starts getting warmer, I'm all about lighter makeup. If I can still look put together without the use of heavy, full coverage foundations, then I'm all for it. I've been putting Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer* to the test - can a tinted moisturizer really make me forget about my heavier foundations?! Read on to find out...
"This tinted moisturizer’s mineral pigments cover skin imperfections, leaving you with a smooth, even complexion so that over time, spots become less visible, and the skin is more beautiful. Great for all skin types, it contains a high concentration of viniferine, which is more effective than vitamin C. It’s formulated with a blend of mineral pigments to blend with skin to cover skin imperfections, leaving a very natural-looking yet smooth finish." - Sephora
Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer comes packaged in a sleek white squeeze tube. There are two shades available, and I use the lighter shade - 01 Light. If you've used any of Caudalie's products before then you'll instantly recognize the light grape fragrance. I apply this tinted moisturizer with my fingers - it blends really easily. You can definitely use a brush if you wanted to, but I think it's easier with just my fingers, and I also love that now I don't have a brush to clean!
This formula from Caudalie is nice and light, it really just feels like I'm applying a moisturizer! I normally prefer a medium to full coverage foundation, but I can actually get pretty decent (medium) coverage from this tinted moisturizer! I then go in with some concealer to cover any blemishes, and set everything for the day with a touch of powder. I absolutely love that this formula contains broad spectrum SPF 20, so it truly does leave you prepared for a hot Summer day!
If you couldn't already tell, I'm kind of in love with this new formula from Caudalie! Can I also say that I can appreciate Caudalie calling this a tinted moisturizer, and not a BB cream? If you're looking to switch out your Winter foundation for something a bit lighter, then I'd definitely recommend checking out Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturizer! My press sheet says that a 40 mL tube will cost you $49, but I also see that Sephora is selling this for $62 CAD. Do some shopping around to make sure that you're not over paying!
