As for the (very-appreciated) non-tacky texture, the liquid wears heavier than a tinted moisturizer but much lighter than a foundation, and still somehow lets your skin peek through—all while blurring pores and evening tone. Plus, it’s housed in a chic glass bottle with a no-spill pump that adds to the skin-care appeal we love (and is finally not an eyesore when left out on my sink).
But wait, there’s more: Jojoba esters act as featherlight emollients to soothe and smooth texture, and “hydrophobic pigments” deliver all-day wear that mimics your own skin. (Read: no caking to be found here. ) Oh, and did we mention it’s free of any irritating fragrance?
Known for their all-clean-everything products that range from effective skin-care and body care to a gorgeous makeup lineup, Beautycounter just did it again, this time with their foundation, Skin Twin ($45), launching just in time for all-summer-long wear.
Designed to be “skin care in disguise,” the tinted formula—it’s available in 18 shades, ranging from fair Porcelain to deep Espresso—is equal parts pigment and skin-loving ingredients.
