Hit or Shit?: ELF Essential Line Tinted Moisturizer.

I wear tinted moisturizers typically in the summer and pre-fall in Texas because of how hot and humid it is. I picked this up because it is getting to where I can start back in on my foundation routine but it's also not completely cool enough. My current tinted moisturizer was kind of spendy so I'd like to save as much as possible for the days I'll really need it, not the days where I got up and figured it'd be hot, only to walk outside and realize, oh shit, I need a sweater.

REAL TALK: This stuff is light weight, easy blending, stays put, and gives more coverage than my other tinted moisturizer. I was seriously surprised. Plus, since this is a part of their Essential Line it was only $1.00. Of course that means, as you can see in the first photo, not a lot of product. But, I do know they have them in bigger packaging on their Studio Line for $3.00. (They've even come out with an oil-free line.)

You do get a lot for the fact that it costs one dollar, I'd say. It's definitely not a one use bottle. I've used it about 4 times now and will say a little really does go a long way. This is a hit. :)

Love, Noralee

Love your make up reviews and info, this looks great, I love a simple and affordable tinted moisturizer as a concealer as well as a foundation for simple days! :)

I'm so glad you're reviewing ELF make-up, I've been considering it for a while since their products are cheap but wondered about the quality. I have quite fair skin, so if they done a really light foundation I'd definitely try it.

I love your pretty layout by the way, I've a floral one myself!

@Mandy, thanks for the comment. ELF is really cool, you should definitely make an account with them online, because they do a lot of online specials.. like every week, I swear.

@vivalajenny, thank you!

@lefresne, They have a Flawless Finish foundation for $6, and I am in love with it. I have a review on it in my queue. And of course all of the tinted moisturizers for $1 or $3, and max coverage moisturizers that are oil free for $3. Also, they do have very light shades. Porcelain, I believe is the lightest, and I've seen it in person, it is very fair. Maybe that'd be a match for you! I'd say try Porcelain in the $1 tube I reviewed in this post, that way you'll know if you like it/it's your shade. Thank you for commenting! :)
