[Description] per Ilia's site >A clean tinted serum with light, dewy coverage, mineral SPF, and active levels of skincare ingredients. >How it works: Your tinted SPF will never be the same. This first-of-its-kind formula fuses skincare, makeup, and sun protection into one easy step: a lightweight serum that leaves your skin looking like skin. Non-Nano Zinc Oxide provides SPF 40 coverage to help shield skin from UVA, UVB, UVC, blue light, and pollution. >Active levels of Hyaluronic Acid, Plant-Based Squalane, and Niacinamide visibly improve bare skin with every wear. This superpowered skin tint doesn’t stop there: It also creates a natural barrier for your skincare, sealing in hydration, plumping skin, and boosting any antioxidant effectiveness by 200%. Plus, it’s silicone-free, fragrance-free, chemical screen-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic, and safe for sensitive skin. This is SPF, made super. ✨Blue light is not anything to be concerned about 🙄 [UV Filters] •zinc oxide 12% - physical UV block [Key Ingredients] •zinc oxide •squalane •niacinamide [Shade Range] 30 different shades of cool, neutral, and warm undertones, of course being rather forgiving and flexible sheer shades. ✨I very much recommend purchasing a sample card to narrow down your shade if you order online. I felt pretty lost, looking at the color tiles online. I'm an olive skin tone and chose the shade ST7 Diaz and think it is a good match on me. Not perfect, but it blends out just fine. Would it work in a more opaque coverage? I don't think so. When I first apply with my fingers, it looks light and a bit ashy, but as it settles, it adjusts and corrects to the actual shade. I do recommend fingertip application as it really melds and moves with skin warmth. [Price] I think I purchased this from Ilia's official site for $48 USD. You can find various shades for resale on poshmark, ebay, and mercari, but finding my shade wasn't in the cards at the time and I was intrigued enough to purchase it full price. [Packaging] This formula needs to be shaken before every application. When I do this, it gets very messy around the threads of the bottle that the dropper applicator twists off of. I actually prefer to just pump the dropper many times while it's screwed on to kind of mix up the product inside. I'm not sure if I'm getting a perfect mix, but it seems to work fine for me. [Consistency] This skin tint formula contains squalane, so it is an oil-based makeup that may not work well with any kind of silicone primer. It's best to apply it straight to skin with a good prepping from your current skincare. [Coverage] This is a skin tint, so it won't cover blemishes or scars, but for a tint I think it offers decent light coverage. It evens out broken capillary redness around my nose, it can lessen the appearance of PIH/PIE, making it look less harsh, and if I powder or use bits of concealer where I need it, I can end up with a really natural no-makeup makeup base. ✨I like to both massage in the product, as well as tap for a bit more coverage. It is slightly buildable. [Finish] I get a very skin-like dewy finish with this tint. I know oily skin types tend to really avoid this finish, but because it also works to moisturize, this is my moisturizer after sunscreen. I will say I've read it can look cakey, dry, textured. It does dry down a bit, but remains supple and moisturizing. If you regularly chemically exfoliate and take care of dry patches with skincare, texture won't be an issue with this product. [Eyes] This does sting my eyes if it gets in my eyes. I'm not sure what in this stings with too-close apllication, but typically zinc oxide is a UV filter that does better as far as eye stinging, so it may not be an issue for most people. [Scent] Smells like sunscreen, since that smell is usually associated with physical sunblock. It does not linger for long. [Conclusion] I quite like this skin tint. You can see it does not cover my very dark scarring, but it evens out my skin tone and does fade the appearance of scars. Would I recommend this tint? If you have the money and are truly curious about the formula, sure. But would I repurchase? Hmm . . . maybe? Certainly not at msrp. I don't think this is bad base makeup by any means, but it's light coverage, texture can be finicky on the skin, and it doesn't have that many skin benefits. It's not worth $48 in my opinion. I think it's around $20-30.

TLDR: the longer I use it, the more I'm loving it 🤷‍♀️ ✨️ NOTABLE INGREDIENTS: - UV filters: hybrid - Niacinamide - Beeswax - Mica - colorants - Adenosine - Pearl, fruit & plant extracts - Peppermint extract - fragrance ✨️ ATTRIBUTES - watery, light coverage - pearly radiant finish - Dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic - brightening, anti-wrinkle, all in one glow booster, makeup base & sun protection - one shade: Bright Shine Beige ✨️ TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY/FINISH: - runny milky fluid with light tint - takes a while to blend in - settles to a radiant pearly finish ✨️ EXPERIENCE True to it's claims, I love it for being an all-in-one product. If applied adequately, this stands a my skincare, sun protection and makeup base. Lovely when I'm in a rush 👌 I normally pair it with a concealer and powder so the shine tones down. Something a glow booster or an illuminating primer would do under makeup 😉 There also is a bit of tact that somehow contributes to the longevity of the makeup. And plus points for it passing the flashback, white cast and eye sting tests 🎉 ✨️ PACKAGING - rosy beige tones are 🩷 - screw on lid - firm but workable squeeze tube
