I’m a fan of all things Tinted Moisturizer. And for $1.00, I splurged and purchased a tube of e.l.f.’s Shielding Hydro Tint with SPF 15.

  • SPF 15 and color coverage in one product.
  • Perfect size for travel. The tube is surprisingly tiny, but for only a dollar…
  • Easy to blend and contains Kaolin clay which is healthy for your skin.
  • Staying power is incredible for a makeup this affordable.
  • Buildable coverage worked well for me in my under eye circles and other splotches.
  • Pleasant, light citrus fragrance that smells fresh.
  • Not tested on animals.


  • Only available in 3 tones/shades (I chose Tone 2 which worked well for my medium skin with yellow/olive undertones).
  • Packaging size is small, but really is perfect for airplane travel regulations these days.
  • May be too moisturizing for those with oily skin.
  • This product is certainly not organic and contains parabens, phosphates, and much more.

You can purchase the e.l.f.’s Tinted Moisturizer Shielding Hydro Tint with SPF 15e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer face makeup at some Kmart stores or online for $1.

The “pros” do seem to outweigh the “cons”. I’m going to give this one a try. Especially because it’s “buildable,” and works well on under eye situations. And of course because it’s non-animal tested! Thanks for the recommendation.

Suzann, The coverage on this TM is pretty incredible for its price. Let me know if you try it and your thoughts. I’d be anxious to hear what others think. :)
