As you can see, it’s waaaaay too dark for my skin and I know that the Medium Plus would be also.
It did feel nice on my skin though, not too heavy and not sticky. I like tinted moisturizers in the hotter months rather than foundation because they always just feel lighter and easier to blend. I hope they release more colors of this because I would love to try it out on my face!

Obviously Light is the color that most matches my skin tone here. Light is a soft pale beige and closest to the MAC Pressed Powder I normally used, so the color on my face matched quite well.
They claim that the powder “fuses high technology with botanical extracts to give “real women” and make-up artists a unique, creamy feel to the touch. The luxurious powder glides onto skin, yielding an undetectable finish without a dry powdery look – leaving the skin feeling tremendously comfortable.”
I tried it out both on its own and over a foundation and liked it, but didn’t really think it was that much different from the regular pressed powder by them. It doesn’t look overly powdery if you use just a bit which is nice, and it does a good job of mattifying any super shiny spots come ‘high noon.
I think I would probably like the tinted moisturizer if it came in my color, based on the feel of it on my hand, but it’s hard to tell. The powder was nice, but I don’t really think it’s much different from any other pressed powder, so I would skip it if you are already set in that department.
