I don't do tinted moisturisers, I find them way too dewy, greasy and they just don't tend to compliment my already oily/combo skin. I've never tried one that I liked, so I tend to completely disregarded them from my beauty radar. However when I heard about the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint I thought it might be time I gave tinted moisturisers another whirl. The word "matte" just screamed out to me and before I knew it I'd purchased it on Cult Beauty. Like I said, on the whole tinted moisturisers are dewy and "glowy" rather than something with a matte finish so I was intrigued to see how I'd fare with this one.
In recent months my skin has got a lot clearer. I've been looking after my skin and trying my hardest to stick to my routine, cleanse my face twice a day and take my makeup off at night. My skin has been reaping the benefits and for the first time in a few years I had spot free, clear skin. My main gripe with my natural skin tone is that I have fairly yellow skin but incredibly pink toned cheeks. I need something that neutralises the pink while also evening out the rest of my face. The Jouer Matte Moisture Tint covers redness and discolouration really well without looking cakey or overdone. I find that on areas I need more coverage I can stipple it on with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to adjust the opacity to suit my needs. I do need a touch of concealer under my eyes and on any spots still but overall I really like the coverage The finish is matte without being drying or cakey looking, it's like a soft satin finish. It gives the right amount of coverage to give you the no makeup makeup look.
I picked the shade Nude which is described as a warm toned light to medium shade, I think it's a pretty good match for me, although it might be a touch too warm for my skin tone. However once buffed it looks absolutely fine. I really do enjoy using this and can see it being a staple in my daily makeup routine for weeks to come. The price is the same as any other high end foundation, which is pretty fair.
