Eve Lom Perfected Tinted Moisturizer

Above: All twelve shades in their respective sample pots.
After experimenting with the newly released Eve Lom Radiance Lift Foundation for the past couple of weeks, I was inspired to swatch all shades of the Eve Lom Perfected Tinted Moisturizer as well.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I am not usually a tinted moisturizer girl, but the foundation is incredible and the TM is getting a ton of buzz.  In turn, I thought it might be helpful to share swatches for those interested in ordering this formula online.  Please note that while there is some overlap in shades between the foundation and tinted moisturizer formulas, some do not correspond directly; consequently, my shade personal descriptions reflect these differences. 

Here's what Barney's NY has to say about the formula:

DISCOVER EVERYDAY HEALTHY RADIANCE, WITH THE DEEP-DOWN HYDRATION
AND TINTED COVERAGE OF THIS RICH, SILKY FORMULA.

Providing a soft, ‘no makeup’ finish, it blends easily while brightening actives help reduce the appearance of pigment spots. All the time you’re wearing it, powerful fruit stem cell extracts and sodium hyaluronate deliver a steady stream of intense moisture to the skin’s lower layers, while vitamins C and E protect and nourish, and SPF15 guards against harmful UV. The skin’s natural elasticity and suppleness are restored, for immediate luminosity, and a long-term smoother complexion.

Benefits:

  • Hydrated, tinted coverage, for makeup-free radiance
  • Pigment spots are lightened and reduced
  • Skin is intensely hydrated, nourished and repaired for youthful elasticity
  • Luxurious, silky formula blends evenly and easily
  • UVA/UVB and antioxidant protection
  • Actively beneficial for all skin types.

  1. Thanks for the swatches! In the little tub, I thought 3 would most certainly be my shade, but swatched it looks perhaps a bit TOO yellow for me. I think 4 is probably me.

    1. My pleasure, Catherine! #3 Ecru is super yellow/golden, indeed! The intensity makes it such that #4 Vanilla is actually lighter...hope it works for you!

  2. Thanks so much for the amazing swatches and the review. I am super pale, and it looks as though 1 is lighter than 2. But I can't wear yellow undertones, only neutral or slightly pink. Do you have any advice about this?

    1. Happy to help, Amy!

      Even though I mentioned that #1 has yellow undertones, I would deem that as neutral to yellow rather than extremely yellow (like #3), plus it is rather sheer, so I imagine that you will be able to get away with it!

  3. Hi,

    Just discovered this blog and you are absolutely amazing and thorough! I am around an NC20, with slight yellow/neutral undertones, I'm looking at Vanilla and Ivory as options - which do you think would work better? Thank you so much! x

    1. Hello Anon,

      Thank you so very much!! I would recommend Vanilla...since it is sheer and summertime is here, I think it will be a befitting match!

      Hope that helps...xx,

    2. Do you know if the tinted moisturizer is oil free and/or non-comidogenic? Thanks!
