I confess I caved and ordered Oriental Gold from Skin79. I dont think it is necessarily a tinted moisturizer; I do like it a lot, and this is coming from someone who could not find a foundation she really loved. When I apply it, it goes on thick, but my skin absorbes it and I get a really nice finish. I use my check stain, and then a light dusting of powder. I dont know if I will love this routine in the hot weather, but it is nice for now. The color kind of blends into my skin.
