Searching For a Perfect Tinted Moisturizer: Dior, BECCA and Hourglass

I am on the hunt for a perfect Tinted Moisturizer for Spring and though I’d share what options I am considering. I’ve narrowed the list to 3 brands: Dior, BECCA and Hourglass. Now my only problem is that I can’t check out BECCA or Hourglass myself but since I love everything  from the brands that I already have I am ready to risk.

So here are the options I am considering with the official information.

Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF 20 Tube 50ml, £28.50
