I have been testing out the new Tom Ford Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF15 and if you like skincare infused, complexion perfecting glow boosters, this will be right up your street. Now before you panic, I am aware that it’s currently only available in the darker shades. Fear not, the full range will be coming! Here is everything you need to know.

So! The strap line for this new base is Hydrating. Radiant. Complexion-perfecting. Yes please.

This is a lighter coverage, lower SPF alternative to their Shade & Illuminate Foundation which I love. It’s also less than half the price.

When will all shades of Tom Ford Glow Tinted Moisturizer be in the UK?

As I mentioned already, there are limited shades available for sale in the UK right now, with the arrival of the full range planned for September 2020. I’d imagine this is down to global delays in production due to the pandemic.

Before & After Photos

Although I was matched to Bone most recently in the Traceless Foundation stick, it is a little light for me right now, and I actually think that Fawn would be the one for me in this formula.

I don’t have that shade, so I have been mixing 1.4 Bone with 5.7 Dune to get my perfect shade. It really works.

And here’s the after photo with my custom shade of Bone mixed with Dune:

And because I have the darker shades too, I used Dusk to bronze and shape my face. I decided to do this because I wanted the same dewy texture all over my skin. I think it works really well.

My Review

I love the finish of this tinted moisturiser. It plumps skin, smooths out any texture and just gives a really healthy, radiant glow. It’s juicy skin in a tube.

The SPF is low, and right now I’d probably prefer it to be higher, but since we are not getting the full collection until September 2020 in the UK, this is probably perfect timing. Also, I tend to use a separate SPF anyway, so it really doesn’t actually matter that much.
