Topshop Skin Tint

For a new launch, Topshop cosmetics are certainly doing well for themselves. With glossy magazines praising their ever so simple yet painfully in vogue collections, to a certain degree I can't understand why on earth this idea wasn't developed years ago; it's genius!

Amongst the blushers and bronzers lies a duo of bases - the medium coverage matte finish powder foundation, and the sheer dewy goodness of the long lasting skin tint:

Available in 4 shades, I picked up a tube of 'Fair' way back in July. Like most people, my overall skin tone darkens during the summer, so I pretty much dismissed the formula's yellow based colourings as a seasonal product I'd have to give up on come Autumn.

How wrong was I?

Fair Skin Tint swatched/ sheered out

All 4 tones of the Skin Tint pump out heavily pigmented, but don't let the instant contrast against your own skin tone put you off. The texture is almost that of a liquid and blends down to an incredible level of sheerness. If you're looking for coverage, then this blend won't do anymore then the most subtle evening out.

Fair Skin Tint applied to bare skin

Alright, so it's by no means a 'perfect match', yet the ultra dewy, radiant, glowing finish certainly makes up for any grumbles on the tonal front. Suitable for blending either by hand, sponge or brush, the sheerness of Topshop Skin Tint means pretty much all skin tones should be covered across the range.

Extreme close up of the product on the skin

Not the most delightful smelling of foundations, I do find the general texture on application to be somewhat greasy. That being said though, the product dries both quickly and evenly on the skin without feeling at all oily.

If you're someone who likes your bases sheer, then this is a hard working product (around 9 hours wear) at a purse friendly price. Hello Topshop Make up, we could become very fond of you...

Topshop Skin Tint is available from selected Topshop stores and for £10.

I am really impressed with their product range so far, so I'll definitely have to look into this tint.

On another note, what blush are you wearing in this picture? It's lovely!

I bought this back in May and I was actually using it on my body - I was scared to use it on my face because of the fragrance! I really loved it, but thought it wasn't enough product for the price. I finished the tube so quickly!

On another note - your skin always look perfectly dewy and lovely! :)

I love the look of the range, but haven't purchased anything yet. the Skin tint looked great, but even the fair was too dark for me in the end.

Looks great on your skin - and loving the blusher also!
