A great tinted moisturizer or two is an asset to any makeup collection. They’re versatile and lightweight — perfect for those times when you just want a hint of color to even out your skin tone. When it comes to which kind to buy, however, the lines get a bit blurry. There are drugstore, mid-tier and even luxury versions to choose from. Ahead, we rounded up five of our favorites for every budget.
Perhaps the best drugstore bang for your buck, Dream BB Fresh is an 8-in-1 BB cream that offers a light tint in five shades. It contains SPF 30 and a soothing pomegranate extract to keep your makeup feeling extremely light and glowing, all for just $9.
The Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer is non-comedogenic, safe for sensitive skin and also contains broad spectrum SPF 30 protection. It comes in ten shades and is infused with hyaluronic acid, colloidal oatmeal, vitamin E and micro-pearls.
Milk Makeup wasn’t messing around when it created the Sunshine Tint; the ultimate tinted moisturizer-foundation hybrid is well worth $42. This baby comes in eight shades, hydrates and protects the skin with SPF 30 — all while leaving a dewy finish on every face it covers.
