Object of Desire
Lighten up with a tinted moisturizer
I’ve never been a huge fan of foundation-except for going out at night and for special occasions. Even as a magazine beauty editor who had all of the latest cosmetic and skincare products at her fingertips (read: no need to actually buy anything-ever!), I have been loyal to N.V. Perricone Tinted Moisturizer for the past three years. Yes, I’ve actually bought this stuff, and at $65 a tube, it’s not exactly cheap.
Surely you’re wondering just why this stuff is so great. First, it comes in three easy-to-match shades; so let’s just say everyone falls into light, medium or dark. Second it has SPF 15 so my skin is shielded from the sun without any white residue. I’ll preface the “third” by saying I don’t have a (naturally) flawless complexion, so I do need a little coverage to conceal the occasional blemish, rogue sun spot, and now, thanks to pregnancy, slight discoloration on my cheeks, under my eyes and above my lip. (Don’t even get me started on the beauty side effects of being with child.) It evens out my skin tone so all I need is a light swipe of bronzer and I actually look like I’ve made an effort with my makeup. Lastly, it contains good-for-your-skin ingredients like firming DMAE, the antioxidant alpha lipoic acid to minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines, plus vitamin C to improve tone and texture.
