Suki Tinted Active Moisturizer - and the addiction continues...

Here we have another addiction addition to the complexion family residing in my train case. They are growing pretty quick in number I must admit. But doesn't it feel luxurious to have a collection of foundations to choose from everyday depending on thy mood? I certainly love that. 

Suki's Tinted Active Moisturizer

"Not just a tinted moisturiser, but the purest, most luxurious, light hydrating makeup you'll ever use. Made solely with completely natural pigments and a world of organic wonders, this gorgeously sheer, customisable tint enhances your complexion, evens tone and minimises pores. You look perfectly radiant, never cakey or made-up. Fabulous for the whole face, for a healthy flush, or for touch-ups."

I have the one in Porcelain which is the lightest shade I believe. They do two other shades namely Bronze and Natural and I would be more suited to a Natural in the summer in my opinion. Porcelain is however light for me but I can get away with it in the winter, as I am pretty pasty coloured as of now. Besides that, I am used to wearing slightly lighter foundations anyway as otherwise they tend to oxidise on my Asian skin which is not a pretty sight!

This is very moisturising and light in formula and you don't feel as if you are wearing a heavy foundation at all. On the other hand, it does not feel as light as a tinted moisturizer should too.

This may be because it does not work like a tinted moisturizer but more like a medium coverage foundation which acts as a bonus point really. It gives me almost full coverage as you can see below and I only need to conceal my under eyes and tap on some powder on the t-zone and am good to go.

As for longevity, It stays pretty well on my face for an entire day at university, gradually fading off by the end of the day. It did require some touch ups, which is not biggie at all. Happens with all foundations to be honest.

The finish is extremely dewy when you initially apply it. I took the pictures below immediately after application hence the super dewy edward cullen-ness. I then buffed it in using a flat top brush after which it sets to a demi-matte finish which I can pull off without using any powder on top.

I wear it pretty much everyday now and it seems to be my winter foundation for sure. Perfect if you have dry, dehydrated or dull skin. I have a combination skin type and it did not break me out, so I would say its fine for combination skin that is slightly on the drier side. I would not say this is suitable for oily skin.

Because I am so much in love with it, I would not say there are any such cons to the product but to be fair lets just say it takes too long to set, needs to be buffed in to take off the extra glow and would need powder on the t-zone to set. 

You can find it at www.bathandunwind.com for £25.53.

Ooh no another one to try! This looks like it gives a great finish. I have a similar addiction, even though I am happy with what I use, I am always up for trying something new. Thanks for this. Jan x
