New Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser

Bobbi Say's

SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free
Created for women with oily skin who want light moisture, sheer coverage and sun protection in one, Bobbi's new gel-based formula is the perfect alternative to foundation. Light and refreshing, it glides on smoothly, blends easily and provides a hint of coverage for soft, even and natural-looking skin. Vitamins C and E protect skin from free radical damage, while SPF 15 helps prevent sun damage.
My Thoughts: 
Designed to provide a HINT of colour for the most "natural looking skin". A gel based formula that is "oil" free for those of you with normal to oily skin tones.
This provides sheer to light coverage for those of you that prefer this type of product. 
As far as "how long will it last" that depends on your skin type. The more oily the skin type the less likely the product will hang around.
This is not a product for use on dry skins but Bobbi Brown does have a formula for normal/dry skins that is just as good as this one but in a more moisturising base. 
If you're looking for a product that this light and you're not a foundation girl, this is for you. 
On a more personal note - this is not something that i would buy. I tested it in store and while i can see lots of people would love it - for me its a miss.
If i wanted a tinted moisturiser i would rather buy a foundation and half and half with a moisturiser or sunscreen. The product would go further and you'd get better value for your money.
This retails at £27 / $40 for 50ml. 

What are your thoughts? Did you like the original? Do you prefer the new version? Are you a tinted moisturiser girl? Let me know... feed back is wanted :)


  1. Well you know word on the streets is ..this is quite a good product. Bobbi Brown does make some nice makeup (especially the natural looking types) so I was actually going to go try it before I purchase it on the bulk. I personally like tinted moisturisers as it just feels more natural and honestly I like something that will just even out the skin tone

    So Wayne..you going to start blogging now :) ?

  2. I have oily skin and don't like full coverage, but as I have some redness on my cheeks I find a tinted moisturiser just isn't quite enough.

    I'd love to find a product for oil-free skin that is between a foundation and a tinted moisturiser, if that even makes sense!

    I'm using Bourjois Healthy Mix at the moment which I love but isn't really ideal for oily skin, especially in warm weather.

    So the hunt goes on...

  3. HI Wayne!

    What happened to your older posts? Have you deleted them as I can't see any of them here apart from this one!

  4. I like tinted moisturiser more, because i think foundation is too heavy for me. plus i break out easily. Its either tinted moisturiser or bb creams for me.

    I would love to try this product from Bobbi Brown.


  5. Yes, I am a tinted moisturizer girl. I have fair skin and quite a few moles and freckles and heavier coverage foundations can make them look ashy. Tinted moisturizer evens out my skin nicely. I like the Bobbi Brown one for dry skin, another favourite is Origins Nude and Improved.

  6. I'm on BB's Skin foundation now, which I love, and I'm torn between trying Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua (I loved Matte Lumiere but the color ranged sucked) and this. Reviews of VA all seem to say it works like a tinted moisturizer. What are your thoughts?

  7. My morning routine needs to be zombieproof so for me tinted moisturizer is a great option since there's no way of applying it wrong really...

  8. I have the old one which i love but its getting old now so i dont know whether to invest in this one i have normal skin and i have a brown complexion. I love how the bobbi brown tinted moisturiser is lightweight and natural looking on the skin. Although, i agree with you Wayne it is very pricey and your tip is amazing i might try it!

  9. I'm not a tinted moisturizer girl. :) If I want very sheer coverage, I just mix my moisturizer with foundation :)

  11. I´m both Tinted Moisturizer girl as well a foudation girl. :) . But it depends which Tinted Moisturizer. Bobbi Brown´s is not good for me in summer.I live in southern spain ,so i need ,in summer, a very sheer coverage foundation, but Bobbi Brown´s Tinted Moisturizer is not as sheer as they say.I only use it in winter

  12. I was never a tinted moisturizer girl, either, until I tried this one. I love it. I swear it helps me look at least 10 years younger. I'm over 60, with nice skin, a few wrinkles, combination dry, normal with slightly oily T zone.

    This really makes my skin look gorgeous and natural, unlike many foundations. I've tried many high end and drugstore foundations, BB creams, CC creams and tinted moisturizers. This Bobbi Brown oil free tinted moisturizer is the best - beautiful and sheer finish. I don't find it drying at all. It provides the perfect amount of moisture and does not look greasy or shiny.

    I use Bobbi Brown foundation stick as my concealer and to provide a little more cover around my nose and undereyes.

  13. i want to learn from you. good luck...
