Skin tints are the new biggest thing, will L’Oreal Hyaluronic Tinted Serum hold its own?
Skin tints are the new hit item in the beauty community thanks to their lightweight feel and skin improving formulas that make them perfect for everyday wear. I personally love skin tints because they allow me to wear makeup, yet get skincare benefits at the same time. They’re lightweight and even out the skin tone just enough. We can all agree there’s a time and place for full glam makeup, but everyday wear is not it for me. L’Oreal Hyaluronic Tinted Serum went viral and sold out on almost every site shortly after its launch in 2021. Naturally, I was curious and had to put it to the test. Much to my surprise, it lived up to its hype and quickly became one of my favorites.
Promises vs. Performance: L’Oreal Hyaluronic Tinted Serum surprised me.
L’Oreal Hyaluronic Tinted Serum is actually the first skin tint to contain 1% hyaluronic acid, fusing makeup and skincare for better skin with each wear. Brighter, more even, and hydrated skin is this face base’s claim to fame. With each wear, skin will feel more hydrated and smooth over time. This tinted serum has sheer to light coverage with a natural, radiant finish thanks to luminous mineral pigments.
You’ll want to start by shaking L’Oreal Hyaluronic Tinted Serum to make sure the formula is mixed together since it can separate in the bottle. Using the dropper, I place a few drops across my face (making sure not to touch the dropper to my skin to keep it sanitary!). My favorite way to apply this skin tint is actually with a damp sponge. It doesn’t soak up too much product and it blends into the skin flawlessly. A brush or fingers work well, too!
Despite the formula looking incredibly luminous in the bottle, it doesn’t look too radiant on the skin. I find it is closer to a natural soft matte finish with a skin-like glow. Its lightweight enough that any glow from skincare below can peek through, and it will almost mimic what you wear under it. This face base wears comfortable for a full day, but the sweet spot of best wear is 4-6 hours. After this, it can start to settle, wear off, and look worn, especially around the nose and mouth area. But, it doesn’t contribute to excess oiliness, nor does it accentuate dry spots, texture, or other imperfections.

How It Compares: One of the best skin tint launches of 2021.
I was so, so surprised by how much I enjoyed this product the first time I tested it. It’s a beautiful skin tint, giving the most natural sheer to light coverage for everyday wear. Of course, skin tints don’t give the longest wear, but it’s wear has minimal settling, fading, and creasing. I love how natural it looks on the skin and that it doesn’t accentuate any skin imperfections I’m dealing with, from texture to dryness to acne. Something I do want to mention is the color range. L’Oreal Hyaluronic Tinted Serum only comes in 14 shades, but each color spans a few shades. For example, I have the color Very Light, which is shade 0.5-2. That being said, I do think the shades are flexible and it should work for most skin tones.
Let me be honest, I love skin tints and can’t get enough of them.

Milabu Beauty Method: We love versatility.
This tinted serum is perfect on its own for everyday wear, but if it’s not quite enough coverage for you, there are a few ways you can wear it.
- Add a full coverage concealer to any areas you need more coverage.
- Pair it under a medium to full coverage foundation. These type of products are perfect to layer with powder foundations!
