Product Review | Morphe 2 Hint Hint Skin Tint in the shade Hint of Butterscotch ($17, Ulta and Morphe's website)
Product Details (from Ulta's website): Keep it light and easy. Morphe 2 Hint Hint Skin Tint is a lightweight yet longwearing fluid tint that hydrates and provides buildable, sheer-to-medium coverage. These sheer, flexible shades are formulated with predominantly neutral undertones, so each shade can stretch across slightly different skin tones and depths.

The naturally radiant finish lets your skin shine through while also smoothing and blurring imperfections. You'll be looking fresh-faced with just a few drops.

Review: I saw this on Morphe's Instagram page but did not pay much attention until my foundation twin @missglamerika on Instagram told me how beautiful this product is. I had it in my Ulta cart for a hot minute because I was waiting to purchase it with a few products from their 21 Days of Beauty. A few days prior to hitting the "Place Order" button, Selena Gomez came out with her Rare Beauty Cosmetic Line. I was so tempted on getting the foundation due to its skin-like and lightweight claims; but I wanted to test this one out first since it appears to be on the same category.
This product retails for $17 for 1 fl oz of product, typical of most foundations out in the market. It comes in a white box with black typography along with the color of the foundation shade on top of the box. This actually comes in a nice frosted bottle with the "Morphe 2" brand printed. It also comes with a dropper instead of a pump as this is a much more fluid product than a regular foundation consistency. The dropper is easy to use (it is better than the Tom Ford Soleil Glow Foundation, in my opinion). This comes in 20 shades; the shade range could be better, in my opinion. I got the shade Hint of Butterscotch (Tan with neutral olive undertones) which was perfect for my toasted brown biscuit skin tone especially this summer since I've been out pretty much every day running/jogging. But once I am back to my regular (not toasted) brown biscuit shade, Hint of Honey or Hint of Walnut will probably work best. But, the best thing about skin tints, it is so easy to make it a sheer coverage so you are not too off-looking.
The consistency of this product is like a serum; so it is very fluid like most "drop" foundations or tints. It claims to have a skin-like, lightweight and long-wearing formula. I agree to all of those claims. It is very skin-like and lightweight. You can apply it as sheer as you'd like or build it up to a lighter coverage. It says that it can be built to a medium coverage although I did not try that since I purchased this product because I wanted a sheer to a lightweight coverage skin tint. I have used this for the past four days both indoors and outdoors. It is easy to blend and it applies nicely on the skin. I used a brand new sponge that I was trying out when I applied this product. While I was not fond of the sponge, I was still glad on how the product applied on my skin. It is beautiful and it does provide the skin a natural radiance. One thing I noticed is that you have to set this product using a loose powder (or whatever powder you prefer). I typically do not set my face with powder (only when I'm doing a makeup looks for Instagram but not on the daily) so it was something I had to add on my application process. It is not a deal breaker since you only need to dust a small amount of powder on your face. The product is long-wearing and it really feels nice and smooth on the skin. It's perfect for every day wear but also for a soft glam look.
I haven't tried the Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Foundation but I have a feeling this is similar to it. Now, this is a skin tint but Rare Beauty claims that their product is feels it is "barely there". I definitely recommend this product, hands down. If I ever end up buying the Rare Beauty Foundation, I will let you know which one is definitely worth your money. But for now, if you love a natural and lightweight makeup, this is definitely for you.
