Hero Product : Mac Moisture Tint

I know this won't interest the boys, but when I find a fab new make-up product, I do like to spread the word.  I use a few Mac products (love their range of matte lipsticks!) and I've been using Mac Studio Moisture Tint for the last month or so.  I like to give a new product a fair try before I tell people about it, just in case the initial effects are not long-lasting.  I'm pleased to say that Mac Studio Moisture Tint is fabulous.

It's a tinted moisturiser/foundation mix that I love.  I have very oily skin and was using the Olay Tinted Moisturiser, but I found that my face was getting so ridiculously oily that I was blotting it several times a day, and even then I looked like I was glowing.

I looked around at a few things, then read a review on the Studio Moisture Tint and decided to buy a tube when I was last in London (surprisingly, they don't sell Mac in Rado!).  It was about 20 quid, but it's MUCH more expensive here in Australia (like everything else - don't get me started!), so I'm going to try to get some in Singapore Airport on the way home (FYI, Mac have a dedicated store in Changi Airport, terminal 2).

Anyway, it gives great coverage, even to my red cheeks and nose.  I don't have to use concealer at all most days, and only put some on at night if I'm going out.  My shade is Medium Dark.  It's just a great one stop product.  I was advised to use moisturiser under it, but I don't, and I don't think it needs it.  My face still gets a little greasy towards the end of the day, but that's not really a problem.

Travel Tip - the tube is small enough to fit into your little clear ziploc for carry-on luggage.  Yippee!

If you're looking for a new tinted moisturiser, give Mac Studio Moisture Tint a go - and let me know what you think!

(Oh, and just in case you're wondering,
Mac don't even know I exist, I just love this product.)
