What Is Tinted Moisturizer? What Is Tinted Moisturizer? What Is Tinted Moisturizer?

Unless you’re living under a rock that shields you from all things beauty (what a nightmare), you’ve likely heard about BB creams and CC creams and all the other doubled-up letter creams. These hybrid products meld your favorite aspects of skin care products with the best that makeup has to offer. They manage to do as much as any single product can possibly do—and that’s why they’ve become so beloved. One of our favorite skin care and makeup hybrids to hit the scene is tinted moisturizer, and it’s a perfect pick for those with mature skin. Piqued your interest? Keep reading to learn all about our best drugstore tinted moisturizer, plus how to add it into your own makeup routine.


If you’re wondering what’s missing from your beauty regimen, we think we have it figured out: Tinted moisturizer. The right tinted moisturizer can provide light coverage while also hydrating skin and leaving a glowing finish. It’s exactly what it sounds like: Facial moisturizer that’s also slightly tinted with makeup pigments (like a foundation or a bb cream). So, you get the benefits of both makeup and moisturizer in just one product. Pretty cool, right? Even cooler: You can get those benefits without spending a lot—with a drugstore tinted moisturizer.

our best tinted moisturizer

Excited to try out tinted moisturizer for yourself? Allow us to introduce you to the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Luminous Serum Tint. This drugstore tinted moisturizer is formulated with vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, which helps keep your complexion hydrated and healthy. This illuminating tinted moisturizer provides moisture while also giving skin the appearance of a luminous glow. Can we get a chorus of “yes, please”? Non-comedogenic and lightweight, our tinted moisturizer is also a delight to wear, whether that’s alone or under the rest of your makeup. Pick your shade (from five) and smooth it on in whichever way you please.


Like we said, you can wear our best tinted moisturizer all on its own or you can use it as a way to round out the rest of your makeup and skin care routine. Follow these five easy steps to use our tinted moisturizer and complete your look.

Step 1: Moisturize beforehand

Moisturizing is always a must. Really—no exceptions. Prior to picking up your tinted moisturizer, massage the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer onto clean skin. This moisturizer, also meant for mature skin, is formulated to exfoliate dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your skin and revive the appearance of skin’s rosy tone, all the while nourishing skin with moisture—making it the perfect way to prep your skin for makeup. For an added boost of hydration, try applying the moisturizer while your skin is still damp from washing. This can help lock in hydration.

Step 2: Smooth on your tinted moisturizer

Now it’s time for the main event. Squeeze a small amount of our tinted moisturizer onto your fingers and use them to smooth the serum over your skin, being sure to carry the tinted product down to your neck—we don’t want any harsh lines here. If you’d prefer, you can always apply the tinted moisturizer with a makeup blender or brush.

Step 3: Cover up imperfections

Seeking slightly more coverage? Not a problem, just follow the tint with a little concealer. Reach for the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage to help disguise any skin imperfections, such as dark circles, age spots, or blemishes. Use the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to smooth everything together. Once you’re finished blending out, those dark circlesdark spots, and blemishes will be undercover.

Step 4: Brush on blush

Every makeup look needs a pop of color, no matter how natural you want it to appear. After all, you’re born with a flush on your cheeks! You don’t need brightly colored eyeliner or lipstick—although we support that, too—but a bit of blush is definitely necessary. Using a duo-fiber brush, sweep on the L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Radiance Cheek Duo in the color of your choosing. Available in four different color combos, these illuminating blush and highlighter duos give off a radiant-looking finish.
