Colourpop's Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer Is My Holy Grail

Colourpop's Tinted Moisturizer Is A Holy Grail For My Oily, Acne-Prone, Medium-Toned Skin — Here's Why

Looking for a product that has a combination of makeup and skincare? Colourpop's "Pretty Much Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer" is for you.

Colourpop's Tinted Moisturizer Is A Holy Grail For My Oily, Acne-Prone, Medium-Toned Skin — Here's Why

- Colourpop's Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer shade range is inclusive, so it's likely that you'll be able to find your match.

- This product is great for any type of look, natural or full-on glam because its coverage is buildable.

- For someone who is acne-prone and has a medium skin-tone is interested in skincare and makeup products, this was worth the purchase.

Because of my skin type, I have had a hard time looking for makeup face products that will not make me break-out or cause any skin problems- this led to me becoming interested in makeup products that have skincare benefits.

After researching various products and reading reviews online, I encountered Colourpop's Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer, and I do not regret purchasing it!

First Impressions

The Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer has many skin tone and shade selections, ranging from fair to deep dark. Honestly, I had a hard time choosing which one to buy because of the fact that I bought it online and wasn't able to do a physical swatch, but I tried to guess which one based on other online reviews. I ended up getting medium 10N and it was the closest match for me!

I have to say it is affordable. As a person who is picky when it comes to makeup and skincare products, especially the expensive ones, I think that $14 is a reasonable price for a tinted moisturizer.


Looking at the packaging, I was impressed. When it comes to purchasing foundations, it has to have a pump because I would sometimes pour too much and waste the whole thing.

However, with this tinted moisturizer, it does have one! Other than that, I am deeply in love with the minimalistic product design because you are able to see the true skin tone and shade color through the packaging.


OK, other than how aesthetically-pleasing it is, I have to say this product is great. Considering I use this on a daily basis when I'm going out, I was surprised it lasted me a whole day, topped with a tinted or translucent powder to keep my oily skin matte.

I also liked how the product is buildable because there are days that I would have a full-glam look or a natural look- I mainly use it for natural looks, which I would do most of the time.

Before my purchase, I found mixed reviews online, especially on YouTube- some people liked it, but some didn't because of the hyaluronic acid and coconut water in the product. I ended up purchasing this product anyways because those ingredients are in some of my nighttime skincare products.

Final Thoughts

Before purchasing, I would recommend doing in-depth research on the product's ingredients first, considering that people have different skin types.

However, as I said earlier, the price is truly worth it. Overall, I would rate Colourpop's Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer about a 4 out of 5.

Buy the Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Acid Tinted Moisturizer from Ulta for $14.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
