I’ve been wearing Medium Dark (a caramel beige) for about a week now. It’s one of the five shades in the new line of super sheer tinted moisturizers.
How does it stack up against my tried-and-true Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer?
I’ve had some rotten luck with MAC foundations in the past, and just like the others I’ve tried, Studio Moisture Tint didn’t get along with my skin. After wearing it for a week with MAC Blot Pressed Powder (which *never* gives me zits), I developed a smattering of little pimples all over my face.
On the bright side, they weren’t the volcanic-sized ones that hurt and take forever to go away, but still.
Ultimately, the coverage didn’t work for me either. I think it’s just too sheer — not that I can’t build up layers to increase the coverage, but it’s time consuming.
I usually think to wear tinted moisturizer on days when I don’t want to spend a lot of time on my makeup, so having to spend extra time layering kinda defeats the whole saving time thing.

MAC Studio Moisture Tint wasn’t my fave, but it still could be one of yours. If your skin gets along with MAC’s other foundations (and you’re looking for light coverage), you might want to give it a try.
Just another manic Monday…
Did ya have a good one? I feel like I opened my eyes this morning and then BAM! — Monday night.
I hope I can make it to dance class. Right now the studio’s only a few minutes from our apartment, but it’ll be a lot farther away if we end up moving later this month.
What’s on your agenda tonight? Doing anything sweaty?
