Beautyblender BOUNCE Always On Skin Tint is radiant and beautiful.

It seems as if everyone is coming out with their version of a skin tint these days. From the cult classic BareMinerals Complexion Rescue to the super hyped ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint, Beautyblender also joins the crew with their BOUNCE Always On Radiant Skin Tint. This one sounds similar, but different. I know what I usually expect from a skin tint: lighter coverage, not a long wear, and a pretty luminous finish. I will say, this one surprised me. To use Beautyblender’s words, “finally, a skin-loving tint that offers breathable build-ablity and actually stays put.

Promises vs. Performance: I’m impressed with the coverage this skin tint gave me.

Beautyblender BOUNCE Always On Skin Tint promises to be the skin tint we’ve all been waiting for: one that offers breathable, buildable coverage that stays put. Expect a light to medium coverage with a naturally radiant foundation when applied. Featuring ingredients like hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plum, niacinamide to smooth, and beta glucan to soothe. Skin should feel nourished all day. This skin tint boasts a 20 shade range that are “tone-adapting” to stretch across all tones. Beautyblender makes no claims in terms of longevity, but in a consumer study, 30 out of 30 participants said it lasted for up to 12 hours on their skin.

Of course, Beautyblender recommends applying their skin tint with a damp sponge of theirs. So, that’s what I did. And let me tell you: it applied beautifully. Are we surprised? No, no we are not.

To apply, I dispensed a few dots of BOUNCE across my face. After blending out the first layer, the redness on my cheeks was still peeking through so I added a second layer. It layered really well and I was left with what I would say is between a light and medium coverage. It could probably be built up to a sold medium coverage pretty easily, though. I achieved a natural radiant finish as Beautyblender claimed. Though, I have to disagree with some of the wear claims. I did not find this product to last all day long; it rubbed off along my jawline, mostly due to touching my face. It also seemed to cling to texture, accentuating it and making it look dry. But, I am super excited to keep playing with this skin tint. I think the lightweight formula is perfect for those no-makeup makeup days.

Our Rating Criteria

How It Compares: It doesn’t have SPF, but it has a beautiful wear.

Dare I say this is better than the cult classic BareMinerals Complexion Rescue? In some ways, yes. I was able to achieve better coverage and wear from Beautyblender BOUNCE than with Complexion Rescue. The dampened sponge applied the formula beautifully, whereas a damp sponge just soaks up the BareMinerals formula. I found that Beautyblender’s skin tint, though not long wearing, wears better on the skin and looks better at the end of the day. Both of these skin tint products feature a luminous, dewy finish, but BOUNCE has a more of a natural dew while Complexion Rescue is a more intense dew.

But, if you are looking for a light coverage product with SPF, Beautyblender isn’t for you. It doesn’t have any added SPF, whereas Complexion Rescue features an SPF of 30.

Milabu Beauty Method: Beautyblender’s skin tint is perfect no-makeup makeup.

  1. Prep skin with a primer. I find a hydrating and blurring primer like Milk Makeup Hydro Grip ($36) works best.
  2. Shake BOUNCE really well to mix all the ingredients.
  3. Using the dropper, put a few drops of the product across your face. I recommend 1 on the forehead, 1-2 on each cheek, 1 on the chin, and a baby drop on the nose.
  4. Taking your dampened Beautyblender ($20) blend (or bounce!) the product into your skin.
  5. Layer the skin tint for more coverage as desired. I found two layers to be the perfect light-medium coverage for me.
  6. To extend the longevity, set with a powder. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($39) is always my go to.
