Searching for the perfect complexion product is no joke when there are a million options up for grabs. But depending on the type of look you want or the lifestyle you live, some products might benefit you more than others. For example, if you’re searching for something hydrating, versatile and skin-loving, you might want to check out the latest and greatest tinted moisturizers because let’s face it: full-coverage foundation is not always an option.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up the eight best tinted moisturizers we’re loving right now.
If you’re searching for the perfect lazy girl’s tinted moisturizer, this one’s for you. The lightweight formula will help even out your skin tone with a sheer tint of color while providing SPF 20 protection (just make sure you put on enough). Plus, you can’t beat this price.
Designed specifically for those with oily skin, this lightweight, soft-mousse blur cream will make your pores look smaller and cover blemishes. But most importantly, it’ll absorb excess oil, smooth your skin like an Insta filter and give a velvety matte finish that lasts all day.
This one’s great for all skin tones, but we highly recommend it if you have dry skin. The oil-free formula includes hyaluronic acid for moisture, which will leave you with a dewy finish. Apply one layer for light coverage, and build up any problem areas for medium coverage.
We call Urban Decay’s Complexion Perfector a hybrid because it’s loaded with skin care ingredients (SPF, vitamins and moisturizers), while providing you with the coverage of a sheer foundation at the same time. This vegan, oil-free formula is perfect for multitaskers who want to improve the look of their skin and still get coverage.

The Tinted Moisturizer That Wants to Be Foundation
Fans of IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream will love the brand’s full coverage moisturizer — a creamy formula that resembles foundation. If you have dry skin (or any skin type, really) this is a good option for you. Just one pump will go a long way.
Black Up is a Paris-based beauty line (don’t worry, it’s sold at Sephora) dedicated to women of color. This tinted moisturizer will even out your skin tone, boost your skin’s radiance and leave you with a matte finish. Use it for light to medium coverage and as both a primer and lightweight foundation.
Housed inside YSL’s trademark gold packaging is the brand’s skin-loving tinted moisturizer. Achieve a light coverage look using your hands to apply or a makeup sponge to achieve medium coverage. The oil-free formula will leave you with a radiant finish, an even complexion and smoothness.
