A new cult favourite beauty product has entered the chat: ILIA’s Super Serum Skin Tint. After spotting numerous ads + hearing beauty gurus’ raving reviews, the team collectively decided it was time to put this reco to the test. With an ongoing list of beauty awards, this skin tint has a tight grip on the beauty industry at the moment x for good reason. Claiming to be the first-of-its-kind as triple threat skincare, makeup, and sun protectant product, naturally, we had to see for ourselves if it’s worth the hype. Whether you’ve been eyeing this product for a while or you’re in the market to revamp your coverage this summer, the team did the testing x reviewing for you. . .

Easy To Blend x Build

This serum was dewy, but not overly shiny. It spread so easily on my skin + felt fresh post application. I made sure to let it sit on my skin once applied, so the true color could show through. I especially loved the benefits of the built-in SPF x clean skin-caring ingredients.

An Eye-Catching Glow

This product originally caught my eye on a colleague. When I asked what was different with her skincare, she had only the best things to say about this skin tint, so I had to try it for myself. I liked that the scent was not overpowering, and the formula was so buildable. This skin tint makes it easy to play with your coverage.

This Product Checks All My Boxes

Call me high maintenance, but I like the base for my makeup to be light, while still doing the job to even out my skin tone. For how light the skin tint felt, I was surprised by how much ground it covered; all it took were three drops to cover my entire face. I can see why this is ILIA’s pride x joy.

A Little Goes a Long Way

I really enjoyed the lightweight feel + consistency of this skin tint. As far as coverage goes, it does a great job of enhancing what your skin already has – a little goes a long way with this product. It blended well with my other products x provided a nice base to build off of!

Just The Right Amount Of Coverage

I have a ‘less is more’ mentality when it comes to cosmetics, so I was immediately intrigued that this skin tint contains skincare ingredients + sun protection. The serum gives good coverage, while also feeling super lightweight on my skin. I love that there’s a way to find my shade online x that it’s made with all clean ingredients.

Packed With All The Good Stuff

I always appreciate a multi-tasking product. This foundation is packed with the good stuff — SPF, squalene, and hyaluronic acid — covering all the bases for daily wear. It wears light x is free of that seemingly unavoidable SPF smell most of these products tend to carry with them.

Best Glow In The Game

I used the color match quiz + was really impressed with how well it blended into my natural skin tone. It feels super light – almost weightless – the coverage is just right. Plus, something about a dropper feels so sophisticated to me. . . definitely a bonus.
