Skin care fusion makeup: Decorte Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32

I have to admit I am not great about SPF for my face. I’m conscientious about using it on my body, but when it comes to my face I am hopeful that one of my skin care products has sun protection in it…yes, it’s the lazy person’s answer to protecting my skin from the harmful rays of the sun! Kind of pathetic, really…but luckily there are some amazing products that enable my dysfunctional relationship with sun protection. Case in point:  the amazing Decorte Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32 ($95).

Decorte Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32

Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32 is one of those wonder products that is so lovely I get a chill down my spine every single time I use it. It isn’t an over the top, ‘look at me’ loud product. It’s more like one of those things that push your look just over the edge into ethereal…your friends wonder why you always look so refreshed and glowy, and ask what your secret is. And you don’t tell them, because, why, then it wouldn’t be a secret, would it?

Double perfection.

This gorgeous, fluid-light formula brings glowing vitality to the complexion. Weightless coverage visibly sweeps away lines, discoloration, wrinkles, pores, imperfections and other signs of fatigue to create a pure, even-toned complexion with just the right touch of luminosity.

Within that veil of perfection and beauty are the calming properties of Decorté Transilient Onsen Water to infuse skin with minerals leaving it looking revitalized and energized. Gentle lifting and firming agents help skin regain its composure. Enveloped in anti-oxidant-rich Cell-Surround 360° complemented with Algae-based X-inflam Defense™, skin is cocooned against damages caused by environmental stress. Broad spectrum protection; harbors skin from UVA/UVB rays.

A gentle, just-there tint tops it all off. A hint of color so subtle, a gentleman could wear it and not be caught.

Paraben-Free

Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32 could be called a light foundation, or maybe a tinted foundation. Or a tinted SPF. It comes in four different shades: Fair, Light, Medium, and Tan. My shade is Light and it does such wonderful things my skin. It evens out my complexion. It reduces the size and look of my pores. It color corrects any redness. It adds a youthful sheen and glow.

Typically, SPF for face is thick, tacky, and has a bit of a white cast. This product has none of that. In fact, the texture is truly divine – it’s thin and a little goes a long way. You do have to shake the bottle to make sure everything is mixed properly before using. Sheer Brilliance Soft Lifting Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 32 does provide broad spectrum protection so even if you are lazy like me, you are more than covered! If you have pretty good skin to begin with and like a natural look, this is all you will need and I confess that on low maintenance weekends this will be the only cosmetic item I use. But typically during the week, after moisturizing and priming I put this on then put my foundation on over it. Then, I get my sun protection and I also get that lovely glowy lift to my skin. It really is impressive!

I have to say I find this much, much nicer than the Cle de Peau Tinted Moisturizer or the La Mer Reparative SkinTint, two similar products with the same price point. If it fits into your budget, I simply can’t recommend this lovely tinted SPF highly enough – it’s the best sun protection enabler I have found! – Lisa
