I am not sure if this a new product, but it is new to me! I have been looking for a foundation that isn’t super full coverage and that I can just apply really quickly and run out the door.
Keep reading for my full review on this product!

This product is perfect for achieving the popular “no makeup” makeup look. This product does say it gives sheer to medium coverage and this is very true. One layer evens out my skin tone nicely, but to cover any blemishes I apply a second layer. It builds up to a medium coverage nicely and still just looks like a better version of my skin. Sometimes if I do not want to wear a foundation, I will Conceal any blemishes and then apply this product on top. This technique gives me a full coverage appearance without feeling too heavy or looking like makeup.
It is suggested to apply the product with your hands, but I still like to use a beauty sponge and the finish still looks great! I was expecting the consistency to be very liquid-y, but it actually had a lightweight whipped consitency. My skin has become less oily and more on the combo to normal side, so I really like the dewey finish this tinted moisturizer gives.
The website does not mention how long lasting this product is, but I have worn it for a good 10 hours and it still looked pretty good when I went to wash off my makeup. It separated a little bit around my nose, but almost every foundation I have does the same thing. On me, it did not look too greasy and held up nicely throughout the day. However, if you do have really oily skin, I would not recommend this product for long wear. For oily skin I think it would be nice if you just need some coverage to go run a few errands, but since it does have a really dewey finish, I do not think it would last as long on oily skin types.
Overall, I am very happy with this product and have been wearing it everyday since I bought it. The Garnier BB Cream used to be my #1 favorite, and while I still like that product, the Complexion Rescue tinted moisturizer definitely stands out for me!
