How it feels/smells/looks

The first thing I noticed was the colour. Just before I put some on, I realised it was a shimmering grey. Weird.

But then I applied to my face and natural tan pigments were revealed once the formula was blended into my skin. The tint was the exact same shade as my skin tone. I was totally in shock. My face looked so smooth and even and felt like velvet. Black magic or just a really good product?

Why I like it

It says you can use it with your daily moisturiser or on its own, and it completely works with both. Not going to lie, I preferred it with my face cream because I have a beard. I wanted an even canvas before applying around the goods. I don’t usually wear makeup or any tinted moisturisers, but this made my skin look like I’ve been sun-kissed in a blizzard. I could see myself using it in my daily routine.

Areas for improvement

If anything it could have been more matte. I found it a little oily after wearing for a period of time but maybe that’s just because I have really oily skin.

Final comments

I did not feel emasculated at all.
