I got mine on Cyber Monday for $4This is the old packaging, but I believe the formula stayed the same.
“Who says you can’t achieve a luminous, even-toned complexion without full-on foundation? Urban Defense gives you the sort of dewy radiance that usually only comes from a tryst in Fiji. The light-diffusing pigments in this wonder product diffuse the look of fines lines and wrinkles for a natural, youthful finish, while the buildable coverage it offers lets you wear it alone (great for warm weather) or under powder for a more polished look. This paraben and fragrance-free tinted moisturizer contains SPF 20, as well as a multi-mineral complex that battles free radical damage.”
I like foundations and tinted moisturizers, but to be honest..I don’t often use them. Sigh.
But tinted moisturizers are really nice because you can basically just put them on and go – not much blending necessary. And of course, they are nicer for the hot months when you don’t want a lot of stuff on your face.
I only have a few tinted moisturizers and Urban Defense is my only high-end one.
I like it well enough.
It is lightweight and gives you that dewy finish, if that’s your thing. Personally I like to set it with a little bit of powder. It does have buildable coverage, however it might not match your skintone that well because it only comes in 4 colors. Halo is a bit too yellow for my skintone, but it’s not much noticeable outside of the swatches.
This version of the packaging has a pump, which usually I would say is great. However, it dispenses way too much product. I’m guessing that’s why they changed the packaging.
It is possible to get less out of a pump if you’re really careful and gentle with it.
I find it annoying, but nothing that’s gonna deter me from using it.
