E.L.F Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Apricot Beige Review

When I first became a make-up addict I was a big fan of tinted moisturizer. Then there was a Beauty Balm Cream invasion in the country and I soon swapped mine in favor of BB Cream. After some time though, I realized that I am actually a tinted moisturizer kind of girl. I wanted to try Myra's Tinted Moisturizer but I can't seem to find it anywhere so I got E.L.F Essentials Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Apricot Beige instead. I have already tried the E.L.F Studio's variant and it has higher SPF content compared to this one. I believe it has SPF 20. I'm in the shade Ivory but when I checked their stall there were only two shades left, Honey and Apricot Beige. The sales lady recommended that I get the later one since it is the lighter color of the two shades available. Packaging wise, it is very simple and looks like this.

A little of this product goes a long way! I love the scent which smells very good! The tube type packaging makes it easy to tote around. I also like the screw cap cover and the tip of the tube because it gives me control over the amount of product that I want to dispense. It feels light weight once applied to the face. A little sticky, but tolerable. Sometimes, I mix this with Skin White's Face Cream Powder in White and it makes my face feel so smooth. It's one of the best combinations I have ever tried! This is also great for people who are frequently exposed to the sun since it has added SPF.
