Review: ELF Tinted Moisturizer


This is going to be a review of the ELF Tinted Moisturizer, and I will also be comparing it to the Cover Girl Tinted Moisturizer. So lets get started!!

So I've been looking at the ELF Tinted Moisturizer for awhile now, and I have no idea why I never picked it up. So on day while at Target I figured I look at it all the time I might as well just buy it! So the next day I couldn't wait to use this stuff. The first thing I noticed is it was a bit darker than the CG one I was use too. I started to apply it and fell in love. This stuff is great! It almost seems to cover more like a foundation to me. Maybe that's just me..I don't know. This stuff is perfect seems to cover more like a foundation but is nice and light like the tinted moisturizer. I have nothing bad to say about this stuff. I highly recommend it.

The CG one doesn't cover as well as the ELF one but I still love it too. I honestly don't prefer one over the other and I will probably continue to buy both. One other thing ELF has over CG though..a higher SPF. CG's tinted moisturizer has an SPF of 15, and the ELF one SPF 20! Love it! Either way you're going to get a great tinted moisturizer. I like the ELF on days I want a little more coverage but still a nice light feeling, and I love the CG one on days I just want something quick lazy days.

So like I said either way you're getting a great product. I highly recommend both!! If you have tried either or both of products let me know what you think. Do you prefer one over the other?


  1. I'm so glad you finally posted this! I've been waiting to read it since you posted that you got the ELF tinted moisturizer on Twitter!

    I've been a devout CG Aqua Smoothers girl for almost a decade and I absolutely love it. Although sometimes I do find the coverage to be too sheer, but a foundation is still more than what I need. I'll definitely be picking up ELF's version and hopefully that will be the perfect mid-level.

    Also, thanks for the warning about ELF being slightly darker! I probably would have bought a shade that is too dark trying to compensate for my tan. ♥

  2. I really like this TM. One thing that I have noticed is that the darker the color, the drier the TM. For example, I went to 3 Targets to buy the Almond and all stores were sold out so I settled on the Sand color. At first I didn't like it because it seemed to have pink under tones (which I didn't would look good on my carmael brown skin). So I bought the Sand and started using, but in the mean time I ordered the Mocha from the website. Well, I actually like the Sand better. The Mocha didn't really even out my skin, meaning some areas looked redish. Not to mention it dried really quickly when I put the Mocha on my face. However, I did not have the same experience with the Sand color. Still, I really like this TM for only $ kind of price.
