The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer first came on my radar because it had SPF 30, and I used to be so bad with sunscreen. This tinted moisturizer helped me not forget my SPF, as it is already there.

Since my mom is obsessed with tinted moisturizers – and recommended I should get one – and I don’t feel like wearing a foundation all the time, this bareMinerals Tinted Moisturizer felt like a good option. Was I right?

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer Review 

The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer does a great job of evening out the skin, adding a little layer of coverage while still making the skin look real – you can still see my freckles and moles. It makes redness disappear almost entirely and even has a blurring effect as it makes my texture and fine lines less noticeable. Even though the blurring effect, it doesn’t mattify the skin. The finish is naturally dewy, which I think is stunning.

The formula is still quite buildable, but you shouldn’t expect medium to full coverage. You’ll get the lightest coverage if you apply the tinted moisturizer with your hands, but you can blend it into the skin with a brush too. If you want to, you can add another layer to places you think you need some extra coverage. I prefer to use a brush, not because that’s notably better, but because I hate getting my hands dirty (am I the only weirdo or…?); however, building coverage is the easiest with a brush.

As someone who used to hate sunscreen, having SPF 30 mixed in with your tinted moisturizer/foundation is like a dream. I used to forget to apply my sunscreen, or I didn’t want to because I drained the sticky, gross sunscreen feeling – you don’t have to go through these struggles with the bareMinerals Tinted Moisturizer. It’s nowhere near sticky, greasy, or pilling and doesn’t leave a white cast as some other sunscreens do. Who doesn’t want blurred and protected skin?!

The texture is very lightweight, creamy, non-sticky, and overall just very comfortable. I never feel like I’m wearing anything on my face. the bareMinerals Tinted Moisturizer never moved or creased when I had other products on top; it doesn’t matter if it’s a cream or a powder product. If you want to, you can easily set this tinted moisturizer with setting powder without it looking powdery, or leave it like this for a dewy finish.

Either way, the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue will stay on perfectly almost all day! I only notice it fading a bit in the places where I frequently touch my skin, such as my chin or nose (as I’m resting my chin on my hand or itching my nose, lol) – nothing too bad, though; I just see some redness and/or texture coming through if I look closely.

Alternatives 

  • Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Skin Tint: I think the Fenty Skin Tint is the closest dupe for the Complexion Rescue, as the Skin Tint also has that lightweight, comfortable formula and the same evening out the skin and blurring effect; however, the finish is more on the matte side. If this is something you prefer, try the Fenty Skin Tint!
  • Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation: Even though the Beautiful Skin Foundation is genuinely more of a foundation, as it has light to medium coverage, I still felt like it was worth mentioning it as an alternative for the people that are looking for just a bit more coverage but still want that natural, airbrushed effect that the bareMinerals Tinted Moisturizer has.

Final Verdict

The bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer is a holy grail. I love how this makes my skin look even, blurred and dewy while still looking natural and letting my freckles and moles peek through. It’s easy to apply, even buildable, blends into the skin within seconds, and stays on almost all day. A very comfortable, lightweight, and amazing tinted moisturizer you should definitely try!

  1. I feel personally victimized by your hate towards the MAC Lipglasses haha I need to try the cream blushes, I don’t know why I haven’t but I think there was a shade I really liked so it’s going in the cart next since I also want a lip liner by them XD (to use with Kim KW since I’m trying to love it lol
    )

  2. This was such a fun read ? Charlotte Tilbury – Fuck: cheek to chic blusher, It’s good but I like other blushers too. Marry: Flawless finish powder, it’s my all time favourite powder. Kill: legendary brows, it didn’t do a lot for my eyebrows ? Lottie x

  3. This was such a fab post to read! It was fun reading your opinions on your favourite and least favourite products from brands. Nudestix is on my radar and I seriously NEED to try the blushers because they look unreal.

    I also think the Magic Cream is overhyped. Whilst I liked it, it’s far too expensive for what it is and definitely isn’t as miraculous as Charlotte Tilbury claims it is. Glad to see you also like Tarte Shape Tape!
