Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the L’Oreal Skin Paradise Tinted Water Cream.
You know I love me a good summer tinted moisturizer and this L’Oreal one looked so interesting, I needed to try it but the first time I when to try it there wasn’t a shade that really matched me, they were all too dark or too yellow.
But since I recently started self tanning I could use a darker shade so I went and got it.
It’s not out in the States yet, but you’ll be able to get it from Ulta for about 12$, I have the shade 03 Light.
It is a classic squeezy tube and it’s honestly so pretty, it has rose gold details and fake water drops all over it.
You have all the details on the back.
The formula is quite thick and sheer, it feels like water, but it has medium coverage but it’s buildable. The finish is quite dewy and looks very smooth on the skin.
Something that really impressed me is how it glides on the skin, it looks so natural on but my face looks incredibly smooth and poreless.
It has a dewy finish and medium coverage, it gives the skin a soft glow and it really looks like your skin but better. Personally, I like that you can still see my imperfections underneath because everybody has them and I don’t mind them.
I was a bit surprised about how much coverage, it as I was expecting something more light and for some people, this is still medium coverage but for me is a bit too much.
I mean it looks beautiful on but it’s not what I was expecting from a tinted water cream.
The best way to apply it is by dabbing it on with your fingers and then, blend it with a damp sponge.
This tinted cream lasts for 6 hours on me before I have to retouch it.
- Effect: 8/10
- Longevity: 9/10
- Application: 9/10
- Formula: 8/10
- Packaging: 9/10
I like this product but I wouldn’t call it a “tinted water cream”, this is a foundation, a very good one but a foundation nonetheless, and I felt a bit deceived by it if I’m honest, it’s not what I was expecting. That being said, it’s beautiful on, the formula is amazing and the packaging is stunning. It lasts all day despite the heat. Just keep in mind this is not as light as the name would suggest.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
