Nyx Came out with the most beautiful tinted moisturizer: A Review

Nyx Bare With Me Luminous Tinted Skin Serum

It has been hard for me to try any other tinted moisturizer aside from the Cerave Sheer Moisturizer that I love so much. Everything that I have tried in the past never ends up making the skin look supple, healthy, and juicy. Yes, I said juicy. I want my tinted moisturizer to make me look like I drank a gallon of water. Anyway, I ran into this product at the store and after reading that it contained Mushroom Extract, I was intrigued.

First Things First- Skin Type

If you are someone that has a drier skin type then you will most likely love this product. If not, this may not be the product you are looking for. I have extremely dry skin during the winter months and combination skin during the warmer months and I love this product. If you have a more oily skin type this may be too much moisture than you need and could become too shiny looking, unless you are going for that look!


This skin serum has incredibly minimal coverage. Compared to my Cerave Sheer Tint Moisturizer that I love, this has even less coverage than that. If you are looking for something that will just even out your complexion and not provide coverage to any skin blemishes or pimples then this is for you.


Nyx has realllllly been creeping up on their prices to the point where personally I don’t think it’s a drugstore brand anymore. But especially in the world we live in today, prices for everything are skyrocketing, even for groceries! But back on topic, Nyx as a brand definitely is between drugstore and high-end price-wise. This skin serum for 0.42 fl. oz, comes out to $17 at Ulta! 17 dollars!!!! That isn’t even a full ounce which means anyone could definitely run through this product quite quickly.


At first, I thought the packaging was awesome, but then I started to despise it.. One day I squeezed the tube part too hard with the little top cap still on and it cracked on me. From then on I started twisting off the actual cap and dumping the product into my hand.

Back of the hand test

This is a little test that I like to do before I purchase any face product to determine if it will settle into fine lines. You NEEED to try this trick. If you’re in the store, grab the tester product and put some on the back of your hand. If you notice the product settling into the fine lines on the back of your hand, then it will for sure do the same on your face.

This product PASSED the test. It looked so good I actually couldn’t believe it.

Overall Thoughts

I must say it is quite cool to see brands implementing new and unique ingredients in their products like this mushroom extract, but the other part of me thinks if it’s just a way to grab buyers’ attention? Comment below what you think.

This is a beautiful product I must say. Pair it with a concealer with slightly more coverage and your skin will look absolutely beautiful, no doubt. This product is also cruelty-free and vegan which makes me love this product even more.
