Jouer Matte Moisture Tint Review

A 'matte moisture tint' is quite a clever play on words. This stuff is most definitely pitched towards us oily-skinned people who are hooked on foundation and have always struggled with tinted moisturisers and BB creams. 

I am definitely at a place, thanks to good skincare, where I don't really need full coverage all of the time. Realising that a lighter base teamed with some concealer where I need it is the way to go has really changed how I think about make-up, and I think I look a little better for it (hopefully)! 

Curiously enough, Matte Moisture Tint manages to tick all of my boxes coverage-wise. It is very easy to build up, and the finish won't suffer as a result. I am not sure about it being a 'tint' - to me this is more of a light foundation - but hey, no complaints. Look at me wearing a tinted moisturiser! 

This has been my base of choice for about two months now. Other foundations are still in my rotation, but eight out of ten times I will reach for this because it performs so well for both day and evening wear. Last weekend I was in London and brought it as my only base, and it worked perfectly, lasting well through tubes, trains and a gig in Hyde Park! 

I do find the finish of this stuff to be mattifying but in a very natural, believable way. It looks like skin and blurs my pores very well - probably my favourite thing about it - and I can build it up in areas of redness, blemishes etc. The formula feels kind of thick yet almost mousse-y, and it blends incredibly well onto skin. It feels light and comfortable to wear, yet holds up incredibly well - brilliant for warm weather. I took a punt on the shade Porcelain and ordered off Cult Beauty - it matches me really well. I can't fault this at all and I think that if I had to pick one base out of everything that I own right now - including Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet and Laura Mercier Silk Creme - I'd pick this one.
