    @Bazinga:  I usually use tinted moisturizer in the summer when I have a base tan, but when I do, I like ELF’s tinted moisturizer. They have a a shade perfect for me, and the coverage was actually not as sheer as other moisturizers.

    I have been using the Pond’s Luminous Finish bb cream and have been liking it. I have combination skin that is pretty fair, and I find that it leaves a nice medium coverage with a luminous but not oily finish when I apply it.

    I have also used the ELF tinted moisurizer, but it broke me out 🙁 (however it’s only $3 so it probably wouldn’t hurt to try it since everyones skin is different).

    Tati from glam life guru on youtube has also recommended the new Physicians formula CC cream (in a silver package). I usually like the foundation/face products she suggests (though she does have oilier skin than I do). 




    As for high end, I also like the Dr. Jart gold tube of bb cream. It has great spf (45) and decent coverage and works well for lighter skin. It doesn’t dry down enough for my so I do set that one with a powder. Hope this helps!

    I used to use Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer, but I got fed up of Sephora and the only other store in my city that carries it always being out of stock of my shade. I’ve used Clinique CC cream for almost a year now and I really like it.

    @Bazinga:  I love love Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer, it’s so fantastic. I’ve been using it for years! My face is pretty clear so I don’t need a ton of coverage, but when I feel like I do I just layer it on a bit since it’s fairly  sheer.

    I use Physician’s Formula Organic Wear tinted moisturizer. It has naturally derived sunscreen in it and covers blemishes flawlessly. I love it.

    I use the Laura Mercier tinted mousturizer every day, even through the winter. it has a bit more coverage then its MAC counterpart and thats exactly what I was looking for.

    @Bazinga:  I have super similar skin to yours, and I use the Smashbox Photo Finish BB cream, with Benefit Hello Gorgeous powder and some Nars blush. And that’s it – my skin can’t handle too many products!

    @Bazinga:  I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and it is amazing.  I have used many other brands ranging in price but always go back to Laura Mercier’s, it’s light and has the perfect amount of coverage and it has spf in it!  It is so worth the splurge for it.

    I’ve been using Tarte tinted moisturizer and I always set it with powder.  I like it- it seems to work OK.  It has light to medium coverage I think…but it has really good ingredients and I like that it is free of a lot of bad stuff.  I’m pretty finnicky about makeup…I have a hard time finding a “holy grail” product and sticking with it!  I’m always trying new things.  I’ve yet to find something I really love.  I never found a BB or CC cream that did anything more than a TM did.  Maybe I’ll try the Laura Mercier TM next!  🙂

    I use Garnier Skin Renew. They have one for regular and one for oily skin. I dont have super oily skin, but with the regular one I had a “dewy” conplexion and had to apply powder more than once if I didn’t want to be shiny. The one for oily skin is my most favorite product. It goes on great with good coverage, but doesnt feel heavy. I use a dime-sized amount, it covers everything and stays put all day. One tube will last me 2-3 months.
