Colourpop’s new Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer, just $14 per tube, arrived on Sept. 26 as part of the accessible beauty brand’s Pretty Fresh line of complexion-perfecters — which also includes a hydrating dewy-skin primer, a moisture-locking setting spray, and Colourpop’s first ever makeup sponge for flawless application.

It’s not surprising to learn that the hero for the Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer (and the other new launches) is one skin-loving ingredient you’ll likely already find on your beauty shelf: hyaluronic acid. The moisture-attracting acid helps your skin look supple and glowy immediately on application and throughout the day, also keeping the pigment from settling into fines or flaking off your face. Coconut water joins in to support hydration without adding a slick, oily texture.

The color of the outer package is the same as the color of the inside product, and I always like the base product. The 24 shades are medium, light, medium, deep, deep and dark, each with four colors to choose from. For a flawless smear, use a blended sponge (or even just the fingertips) to apply to a moisturised and primed face – it should blend seamlessly with the skin for a natural even look.

I find this product enjoyable to use for day to day wear. It is very easy to wear and gives me that bit more confidence whilst still appearing fresh-faced! If lighter coverage products are more your thing I would 100% recommend you give this a go as the quality and price make it a no-brainer.
