Just when you thought that there couldn’t be anymore foundation news this week. There’s one more thing. Glossier‘s Perfecting Skin Tint ($26) is getting reformulated to be better than ever. The new version will feature an even better formula and more shade ranges.
Glossier’s Perfecting Skin Tint has become a beloved products for those who prefer a natural makeup look because it looks like your skin, but more even and radiant. The formula evens out skin without hiding freckles and is light enough to avoid the dreaded cake face effect. There are currently five shades on offer which range from light to rich. While it might seem a very limited number, the shades “auto fit” to skin and are lightweight enough that they blend seamlessly with a range of skin tones.
After rumors of the reformulation were circling around Reddit, Allure confirmed with Glossier that the reformulation is coming. In fact, Glossier has also posted on its website that the Perfecting Skin Tint has been reformulated as of June 5, 2018. Allure reported that the brand wanted to fix some of the issues of the original formula customers experienced in terms of pigment without affecting the dewy, sheer finish that made it stand out. As for the colors, the additional shades will be launching next year, but there’s no word on how many there will be.
