Overview

Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 is a lightweight tinted moisturizer with an in-part avobenzone sunscreen. It has a cushiony, moist texture on application, but sets to a soft matte finish with the tiniest hint of shine. You’ll achieve soft color and very sheer coverage from each of the shades, all of them outstanding. This formula is best for normal to dry skin. Those with oily or blemish-prone skin will not appreciate the short-lived matte finish, and the thickeners and waxes aren’t the best over breakout-prone areas.

Note: This foundation’s rating is due to its overall performance rather than its SPF rating. Due to concerns about people not applying sunscreen liberally enough to get the amount of SPF protection stated on the label, it is often recommended to look for SPFs with ratings higher than 15. If you plan to use foundation as your sole source of facial sun protection, consider using one rated SPF 20 or greater. If the foundation with sunscreen you choose is rated less than an SPF 20, we strongly advise applying it over a daytime moisturizer rated SPF 15 or greater and following it with a pressed powder rated SPF 15 or greater. That way, you’re ensuring sufficient broad-spectrum protection which is essential for having and maintaining healthy, younger-looking skin at any age.

Brand Overview

Sonia Kashuk At-A-Glance

Strengths: Affordable and widely available (though exclusive to Target stores); good makeup remover; the makeup is still the star attraction, with impressive options for foundation, powder, blush, lip color, eyeliner and especially makeup brushes.

Weaknesses: The concealers, eye pencil, and brow shapers are a letdown; the makeup palettes may seem convenient, but several of the included products perform poorly.

Perhaps best known for her years of work with supermodel Cindy Crawford, makeup artist Sonia Kashuk's well-chosen selection of makeup has been available exclusively at Target stores since the mid-1990s.

 Kashuk's brushes have been a strong point, and now that they've been redone they're better than ever, and still affordable. This is definitely a makeup collection worth visiting, and you'll find some premium options among Kashuk's powder foundation, regular powders, and blush. Several other products, from foundation to lipsticks, are also worthy of attention, though this is not a line that caters to darker skin tones. Ironically, it's the latest cosmetic products that met with the most critical reviews, largely due to poor execution or their gimmicky nature.

Note: Sonia Kashuk products are also available at select Bloomingdales locations in New York and California. The company also maintains freestanding stores in New York and New Jersey.

Great Cover

I have been using this product for about 3 years and I love it. It has good coverage and lasts until I wash it off at night. I am over 50 and have good skin so I don't need too much coverage. I tried using different tinted moisturizer brands, and none compare to Sonia Kashuk. The others came out too white or pink and left an unnatural color on my skin.
