Hello, Aveda Inner Light Mineral Tinted Moisturizer has been one of my favorite tinted moisturizers for the last six years or even longer. Being a Green company, Aveda decided to pull many of its products from its retail stores and salons last year because they contain chemicals and preservatives that are considered to be harmful to our bodies. Some of the products in the makeup line such as the liquid foundation was discontinued. All other skincare, makeup (including this product), and haircare products that contain harmful ingredients have been re-formulated as of earlier this year. Read their Green Ingredient Policy here.
What do I think about the new formulation?
Color - I wear 02 Beechwood, the second lightest shade out of seven shades available. Beechwood is a neutral shade, not too yellow or pink. It works well for my NC20-25 skin tone
Texture - The oil free formula provides a light weight feel and adequate moisture. I love wearing this alone or sometimes over a higher SPF sunscreen in the summer. I have even worn this to the gym when I needed some coverage and it did not break me out
Coverage - Light. It will even out your skin tone, but it does not provide coverage. If you need more coverage, use concealer in areas where you need it. Aveda makes a nice creamy concealer
Finish - Semi-matte. For me, the old formula was oilier and not suitable for oily skins. My face got very shiny and the TM melted off in a matter of hours. I like the new formula so much better, the lasting power improved and the finish is more polished
Skin type - All
Price - $28 for 1.7 fl. oz.
Lasting Power - 4 hours
Repurchase? - Yes. I am a fan and I will keep buying as long as they make it!
