REVIEW: Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

Kristin Reviews: Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Beige


I recently finished using a sample of Hourglass’s Illusion tinted moisturizer in the Beige shade. I wanted to find a good shade for my slightly tanned skin this summer with SPF, and I found it in this luxurious product! All of their claims are true!
Product Claims:
“ILLUSION TINTED MOISTURIZER ADVANCED, HIGH-INTENSITY TINTED MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 15 COMBINES INSTALIFT® AND HYALURONIC SPHERES AT 3% TO CREATE A YOUTHFUL AND GLOWING COMPLEXION.


  • INSTALIFT® is a natural plant-based glycopeptide which visibly lifts and tightens the skin within an hour of application
  • Helps skin appear smoother in texture and even in tone
  • Provides moderate, natural coverage with a dewy, glowing finish
  • SPF 15 shields skin from harmful UVA/UVB damage
  • Oil-, fragrance-, and paraben-free”

Illusion Tinted Moisturizer comes in 6 shades to accommodate many complexions….although, I do think they should have made a few more shades for darker skin tones:

Tinted Moisturizer in Shell
Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory
Tinted Moisturizer in Light Beige
Tinted Moisturizer in Sand
Tinted Moisturizer in Beige
Tinted Moisturizer in Warm Beige
The sample I had was tiny, but a little goes a long way with this product. It gives nice even coverage on my cheeks, nose and forehead with just a dab on my finger tip. It is truly luxurious make up! My skin feels so moisturized and never greasy throughout the day. The coverage stayed even and non-blotchy even in 90 degree weather in NYC! The best thing about it is that it actually tightens and plumps your skin throughout the day! I definitely noticed my skin looking more supple and fine lines filled in. The Hyaluronic Acid in this product is so hydrating, and the natural plant based INSTALIFT® really tightens the skin as it claims!:

A little goes a long way! This amount covers my entire face.

The beige shade of Illusion Tinted Moisturizer is perfect for my skin tone during the summer with a slight tan. The beige shade seems almost too tan before it’s blended, but that is why a little goes a long way! Once it is blended, it’s perfect, lightweight, and creates a nice glowing natural base for the rest of your makeup…or you can just wear it alone for a “no makeup” look without all your flaws showing! I will definitely be purchasing Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in beige for the summer months.
