One of the things I was most looking forward to when visiting Montreal was the excuse to actually wear makeup again.
I had a full five months worth of dates to catch up on, and considering all the products I get, I was really excited to put them to the test. My full-coverage makeup definitely got some wear, but the products that I reached for more often were definitely more light-coverage ones.
Maybe it was all the time in the sun or the fact that you have to wear a mask everywhere there (I’m actually just home back to Winnipeg today), but I just didn’t want a full face of makeup. I wanted my skin to breathe, and more than anything, I was just so lazy to wash it all off at the end of the night.
I had my IT Cosmetics CC Cream out here but also realized that I had the Rodial Skin Tint + SPF 20 also kicking around, which I got from a PR company in New York.
The Rodial Skin Tint + SPF 20 (C$45) is a medium-coverage tinted moisturizer that is designed to brighten and enhance your skin tone. I found this to work very similar to the IT Cosmetics version, but more lightweight on the face.
It contains amino peptides to target multiple signs of aging. Just apply it to your face and watch it blend in wonderfully, leaving you with a light feel and a long wear. It’s also buildable, meaning that you can customize the experience depending on what you’re in the mood for.
This product is available in six shades and I have the shade New York, the second lightest one which I found matched me perfectly (even with a slight tan still). I apply this with a foundation brush for a radiant finish that really does last all day on the skin. I really like the amount of coverage this gives me and by the end of my trip, I was reaching for this more than my other true foundations. I liked the way it made my skin look (great coverage and an awesome glow), plus it really does last all day on your skin.
Looking at the before and afters, honestly it looks like I’m wearing a full-coverage foundation, but I just have this product on my skin. Like I said, I also find it more lightweight than the IT Cosmetics CC Cream, so this would be a great alternative if you aren’t really a makeup person, but are looking for something you can throw on your skin everyday.
Have you tried Rodial’s Skin Tint?
Please note, I was sent these products from PR. All opinions are my own.
