A few months ago I was at Sephora event with my friend Sarah and she introduced me to KOSAS Tinted Face Oil Foundation. Sarah is more knowledgeable/better at makeup than I am so when she told me about it, she referred to it as her “vacation makeup.” Meaning that for me, it would be a great everyday makeup, ha ha. I bought it immediately.
Kosas Tinted Face Oil Foundation Review
This stuff is the real deal! I absolutely love it. It’s perfect for when you want to look dewy and radiant but not overdone. It’s your perfect “no-makeup makeup.” (I wear shade 04). I apply it over my full skincare routine (serum + moisturizer). I wanted to note that because I think it could be confusing since it’s called a tinted face oil I was tempted to skip moisturizer (you probably could) but have the best results when I just use it like I’d use any other foundation.
What I really love is that it has just a little bit of coverage so it hides any dullness or red spots; all while hydrating the skin and leaving it GLOWY. For everyday, it’s my fav! I still definitely love my Ilia foundation for a shoot/event/time when I want to be a bit more “done,” but for my everyday life nothing is better than this!
It’s also verrrry nourishing, making it great for dry skin. (It’s packed with jojoba seed oil, avocado oil, and raspberry seed oil. It glides on and gives your skin that imperceptibly better “maybe she’s wearing makeup?” kind of look.
Just be sure to shake it up really well before applying. Don’t apply it over any serums/moisturizer that contain silicones or there may be some piling!!
And if you want to try more from this brand, I absolutely love and highly recommend their lipstick in “rosewater.” It’s a really pretty natural pinky nude.
