I really, really want to ditch my mineral makeup and go with a tinted moisturizer instead. Since we've moved to a drier, colder climate the mineral makeup just accentuates all the little dry patches on my face and makes me look old and icky greensad.gif Does anyone have any recommendations for a good, natural tinted moisturizer that's available in light shades? I have extremely fair skin with a little redness on my cheeks and I need something to help balance out my face a little - I just can't stand how I look with no makeup on!

I use the tinted moisturizer from 100% Pure and I love it!  I've been using it for a few years now....

It has been such long time since I've visited this forum! Anyway, in my google search for reviews on this same topic, I came across this post. I ordered a sample of the 100% pure tinted moisturizer from (they offer samples on almost all their products) b/c I've been thinking about it for a while but there isn't a store around here that sells 100%pure cosmetics. Anyway, I got the color Golden Peach. It's a pretty nice formula, moisturizing, a sheer coverage, matches well at first but I think it oxidizes to a slightly darker possibly orangier color after a while. I just ordered a tinted moisturizer tonight from by a company called Living Nature. I ordered it in Medium, along with the concealer. I will let you know what I think of it when it comes in. Kinda pricy, but at the same time personal care is something I'm willing to spend a little more on to have a great ingredient list. One thing I liked about the is that they offer a 90 day no questions asked return policy. So if it ends up being terrible or the wrong shade, no problem with returning or exchanging. also sells their products and they have a 30 day return policy.

Your skin sounds exactly like mine.  I will tell you what I use but many would think it's too fussy.  I always first use a good face moisturizer with some SPF protection (lately it's been oil of olay for sensitive skin since I am pretty broke).  Then I appy the cover girl brand of tinted moisturizer (805 is the color I get) with a MAC foundation brush.  On days when I want more coverage or when my skin looks extra bad, I mix in a dot of MAC foundation on the make-up brush with the moisturizer before applying. 


I get the covergirl tinted moisturizer from amazon normally.  But I have seen it at Walmart.
