    Not to thread jack, but has anyone used the Garnier 5 second miracle blur? I have and initially it makes your face feel like velvet but it feels greasy too even though it’s matte…Not sure what’s going on there..

    I like tinted moisturizer but can never find a shade that works for me; I’m very pale and even the light tones are too dark.  I sort of make my own by combining moisturizer and liquid foundation.  The nice part I can make it as sheer as I want and adjust for days my skin is better or worse.  I use Loreal True Match liquid foundation and combine it with either Cetaphil lotion or Aveeno Positively Radiant.  The Aveeno has SPF so I usually use that in the summer or if I’ll be outdoors more.  I set it with a matte powder (I think mine is Rimmel) and it usually stays all day.

    I use Dr Jart Black Label BB cream most days.  It only comes in one shade, but works for my light/medium skin.  It gives almost medium coverage (not quite light not quite medium).  I don’t think you are evey going to get medium-full coverage with a tinted moisturizer or BB cream.  I really like it, a sample came with my Clarisonic and I bought a full size when that ran out.

    @Bazinga:  I personally prefer and use more fuller coverage foundations (MAC prolongwear, revlon colorstay, MUFE HD…you name it I probably have it)  However if I had to choose a tinted moisturizer it would definitely be the Laura Mercier…it really is worth the money!

    You could always buy a more full coverage foundation…so you can have the coverage if you want it, and on the days you don’t you can mix your own moisturizer with a few drops of your own foundation. I have done that before and it’s great because you choose the moisturizer (so you know it won’t break you out) and you can control the amount of coverage.

    I’m extremely pale, and have never been able to find a shade of foundation thats light enough for me. Even the palest of the pales, ivory, or porcelain still make me look orange.


    But I recently started using Stila tinted moisturizer and it works pretty well. I have super dry skin though, so I have to lather on the facial lotion before I put it on.
