I absolutely despise this shade. The consistency is weak and extremely sheer. There is an unusual blue tint to the formula. It took several coats (about 4 or 5) to get it this opaque.

Kiehl's Tinted Moisturizer
$25 for 2.5 fl oz. Kiehl's tinted moisturizer contains SPF 15 and comes in light, medium, and dark. The specific one that I am reviewing is in medium and I am usually an NC 20-25. My first complaint is the lack of shade range Kiehl's has. There needs to be a shade darker than their version of dark, and then maybe a shade between light and medium and medium and dark.
Anyways, the coverage is light-medium and contains a very light-weight feel. This is a great everyday moisturizer that I can pull off with little to no concealer. Unlike other tinted moisturizers, I do not need to wear a moisturizing lotion underneath it. Kiehl's provides moisture for a solid 10-12 hours for me. The foundation leaves a dewy finish, which does not suit my oily T-zone. Because of that, I wear a setting powder on my forehead and nose.
Overall, this is an excellent everyday foundation, with sheer coverage. Many dislike the product because of the smell, but I honestly don't ever notice it (maybe because I wear a lot of makeup with SPF).
