A Fabulous Tinted Moisturiser - Madara Decoface Tinting Fluid

Madara decoface Tinting Fluid in Moon Flower - £23 for 50mls - Suitable for all skin types.

One of the nicest things about beauty blogging is trying a fab product and finding out about companies that you simply cannot wait to share with your readers..and this dear reader is one of them.

You may not have heard of Madara, I will admit I hadn't.

A little background - Madara is an entirely natural and organic range of cosmetics manufactured in Latvia. Its ingredients include biologically certified flower and herb extracts from the Baltic region, as well as other natural substances.

The tinting fluid contains - Baltic algae, chamomile, plantain, rose water and St John's-wort, cocoa, jojoba. The colour and shimmer are obtained from natural plant minerals and mica, how good does this sound?

I was lucky enough to be sent this tinting fluid to try but I will definitely be purchasing it once I have finished this bottle as I really think it is one of those 'must have' products.

I will admit my first impression of the tinting fluid was not entirely positive. I wasn't keen on the scent, I found it a little strange, yet it only took another sniff before I was hooked.

The scent is verdant - think grass, meadows and greenery, think peas in a pod freshly shelled. Actually it is really addictive and yes even me, she who suffers from hay fever now finds it utterly appealing.

I am always a little reluctant to move away from my foundations to a tinted moisturiser for Spring/Summer as I have been used to the coverage all winter.

I needn't have worried though as this provides great coverage, yes it wont hide huge blemishes but it does even out skin tone and small imperfections. I love how light this feels on the skin and the fact that it is pretty long lasting. I found it easy to blend and build coverage if necessary. It also felt quite cooling, a plus point I would imagine in the heat. This is such a great lighter alternative to foundation.

I have been using it both after applying my moisturiser and without and it does feel really moisturising and glides across the skin and absorbs well to leave a beautiful finish, which I haven't always found with tinted moisturisers. In sunlight it looks dewy but I wasn't able to capture it for the camera. I have a feeling though there will definitely be some more face of the day (FOTD) pictures using Madara, so I hope to be able to catch it on camera in the future.

If you are looking for a tinted moisturiser that illuminates the skin and leaves it looking radiant and healthy looking then you should try this.

Madara tinting fluid is available in two shades - Moon Flower which I am using and a darker one (Sun Flower) for slightly more tanned skins and comes in a handy pump action bottle.

Don't just take my word on how great it is though.. The Beauty Bible agrees with me as as The Moon Flower Tinting Flower has just been awarded an Anti Ageing Beauty Winner Award.

  1. Hi Bettina,

    I have never heard of this range before. I am looking for a new tinted moisturiser for the summer and this sounds fab, and of course if the Beauty Bible have given it an award then it must be good. I will be checking this out. Jude xx @jadlgw
