How to Use the Age Perfect Tinted Balm on Different Skin Types
Balmy, skin care-inspired makeup formulas have been incredibly popular over the last few years, and they don’t seem to be going anywhere. While there’s certainly a time and place for matte, full-coverage makeup, many of our daily lives have shifted, creating less events that call for full-glam. Because of this, minimal makeup is often the preference — especially when it comes to foundation. That’s why more sheer, natural-looking formulas have been hitting the market more and more lately.
Enter the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect 4-in-1 Tinted Face Balm Foundation. Don’t let the word balm fool you into thinking that this skin care and makeup hybrid is an overly dewy formulation meant solely for dry skin. It looks gorgeous regardless of your skin type and below, five of our editors with various skin types and concerns are sharing how it performed on them, plus their application tips.
The Age Perfect Tinted Balm is a 4-in-1 product that instantly smooths lines, conceals imperfections and evens the skin tone and firms the skin over time. When you press your finger into the balm, you’ll notice how it starts to melt on contact. The same goes for when you apply it onto your skin — it warms up and blends effortlessly into your complexion, providing light, buildable coverage and a natural-looking luminous finish.
When you think of a balm-like formula, a thick, rich, potentially firm consistency might come to mind. And while that’s perfectly fine for the lips or extremely dry areas of the body, this foundation balm has an ultra-lightweight texture that pairs beautifully with the skin on the face. It’s not heavy or greasy while you’re wearing it.
To see how this foundation balm performs on various skin types five of our editors put it to the test. Keep swiping to learn about their experience and get their honest thoughts on the product.
