I bought a tube of this moisturizer late last year. It only costs P135 ($3.23) in the supermarket. Since I switched to virgin coconut oil as my moisturizer, I haven’t been using this, so I was surprised to find that the product had expired five months ago. Such a waste, but I guess it can’t be helped.
This comes in two shades, Ivory and Beige. Ivory has a yellow undertone while Beige has a pink one. Being unfamiliar with my own skin tone back then, I got Beige. It made my face look a bit tanned, but it still blended well. This tinted moisturizer has a runny texture. Coverage is sheer; it evens out skin tone but is not able to completely hide dark circles and blemishes. It looks fake and cakey when you apply too much; I found that a drop the size of the tip of my index finger was sufficient for the entire face. Also, this has glitter! Use too much and you’ll look like a disco ball. The glitter is fine in sunlight because it gives you a nice glow, but under artificial light, people will look at you strangely and wonder, “Where’s the party at?” You can remedy this, however, by applying the product with a sponge. Less glitter, less mess on your hands. Also, topping it off with powder hides the glitter somewhat.
The thing I dislike most about this is not the glitter, though. I hate that it doesn’t get absorbed into my skin; it rubs off into everything that touches my face and neck! Because of that, it doesn’t last all day. I’d give it four hours tops before it completely disappears.
I wouldn’t repurchase this because VCO is my main moisturizer, my sunscreen has way higher SPF, and foundation offers more coverage and longevity, plus it doesn’t rub off on my handkerchief and clothes. Also, who wants to look like a disco ball, right? I suggest you look for a glitter-free tinted moisturizer or a good BB cream. If you like Myra E, then just stick to their regular moisturizers (they have one with SPF 15) and top them off with powder foundation.
