MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15: Detailed Information and Swatches


M·A·C is first and foremost a makeup artistry brand, but that is not to say that our treatment products aren’t heavy-hitters. The key point of difference in M·A·C skincare is that they were developed specifically to be used in conjunction with makeup. Most treatment products are designed for efficacy while being used alone, whereas M·A·C products are made to enhance the makeup experience.

Enter Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15, this sheer formula is no lightweight when it comes to performance. With a powerful selection of ingredients and skin beautifying effects, M·A·C’s latest debut, evens out skin tone with minimal colour, provides SPF 15 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and increases moisture levels.

It is perfect for busy women without time for a moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation or for women who prefer something lighter than traditional foundations. Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 offers just the lightest touch of coverage. It smoothes on easily and requires minimal blending to create a flawless look, while concealing imperfections without entering into mask-like territory. This exceptional tinted moisturizer offers a cocktail of skin-loving elements normally found in treatment products.

In addition to hiding small imperfections and discolorations, this unique makeup multi-tasker is packed with a plethora of preventative and reparative extracts and boosts skin’s health with continued use. Soothing aloe and lecithin, combined with anti-irritant caffeine and sucrose extracts, helps all skin types defend against environmental aggravations. Humectants such as sodium hyaluronate and glycerin ensure optimal moisture levels, which are protected by added cholesterol to assist in repairing the skin’s lipid barrier. Collagen-stimulating palmitoyl oligopeptides help in repairing the appearance of past injuries and encourage skin to act in a more youthful manner. Damage caused by the sun and pollution are slowed down with the aid of antioxidant vitamins C and E to thwart free radicals, and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate to provide UV protection.

Immediately upon application, skin becomes luminous, with a more even tone and youthful dewy finish. The sheer coverage lasts for hours. The oil-free moisturizing properties last for eight hours. Apply with fingers or a brush over the entire face, or dab onto trouble spots to create a flawless finish that’s never overdone.

Which shade would you recommend for a NC43? Medium Dark or Dark? These have not launched in Singapore yet, but i'm sure to check it out when it's here. :)

nystaff- I'm NC30 but I got the Medium Dark, and it blended in the back of my hand. I'd have to try it first on my face to be sure. Will let you guys know.

Thanks for the swatches. I was looking forward to this but it looks like even the lightest shade is too dark for me.

I'm an NC40 and I got Dark. I actually returned this because it wasn't moisturizing enough for me at all. In order to get it smooth, I had to use a moisturizer beforehand, which in my opinion, defeats the purpose.

I am an NC40 and purchased it in Dark. It isn't moisturizing enough for me so I ended up returning this.
