Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30

Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30 in Light ($42 for 0.7 oz.)
Milk Makeup is a relatively new addition to Sephora, which is where I first learned of them, and they seem to be kind of polarizing. I understand that the brand’s look and feel isn’t for everyone, but I personally think their approach is very cool. They were born from the bicoastal LA and NYC-based Milk Studios and really highlight fresh and expressive makeup in formats designed for easy application. I bought the Sunshine Skin Tint during the springtime Sephora sale and honestly, I think it’s really fantastic. This is a luminous light coverage foundation that looks really nice and healthy on the skin, provides some sun protection, and comes in a funny click-pen rollerball tube.

This summer, I’ve been using the crap out of the Andalou Naturals Color + Correct moisturizer with SPF 30. This CC moisturizer was introduced along with their relatively new 1000 Roses line of products, which is targeted for sensitive skin. I was pretty excited when I initially saw the 1000 Roses line on store shelves for the first time early in the summer, since I’m a fan of Andalou Naturals in general and I’ve been trying to reach for more natural and gentle products as my skin has become a little more sensitive than it used to be.

Recently when Sephora was offering double points on skincare purchases for Beauty Insiders, I decided to try some new sun protection. I’ll absolutely admit that it felt a little strange since Seattle winters generally involve short daylight hours and overcast skies, but I knew that I’d want to be prepared for the odd day here and there where I actually might see the sun. I decided to try the Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector, which comes with SPF 43.

The NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is one of my favorite go-to products, and one of the few higher end products that I repurchase despite the high price tag. Part of the reason I can get over the price is that you get a lot of product in a bottle, 1.9 oz, about twice what you get with a lot of other foundations. It works just the same as a foundation for me, and it’s not like I need to use more product in an application. I think I use less, actually. The other reason why I repurchase this is that it really makes my skin look like it’s just naturally more healthy and radiant than it looks on its own. When I receive compliments my skin, I most likely wearing this.
