Product Review : ILIA Beauty Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturiser in Muriwai

issue one : borrowed from before

While I am not the type of makeup artist that wants everyone I paint to be tanned and chiseled  within an inch of their lives, there are times when I do need to warm up a complexion a little, and truth be told, it's not always the easiest thing to do because it can land up looking fake and tacky pretty quickly and well... you know, a little "Made in Essex" - the kind of colour that gives Essex girls a bad name. (I know for a fact that they don't all aspire to that lacquered-body-builder-in-heels look.) 

While ILIA Beauty probably set out to design a tinted moisturiser that simply offered the wearer a lovely, untainted, complexion enhancing formulation - they accidently stumbled on the winning formula for a little wash-away tan! Whether they realise it or not.

It really does what it says on the bottle (and so much more).

 
ILIA Beauty's Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturiser in Muriwai is formulated with aloe vera, which helps sooth the skin and allows the product to dry and adhere effortlessly to the skin.

Tip

For those fairer skinned beauties wanting a subtle tan, use a shade or two darker than your skin tone for a flawless, even, sheer illusion of sun. The fact that is has an SPF20 all built into the formulation means that you can still protect your skin from the sun. Fake it till you make it baby!

The ILIA Beauty's Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturiser is a semi-matte formula with soothing botanicals to help calm and revitalise the skin. It comes in 6 colours.
