Avon Ideal Flawless Tinted Moisturizer Lotion in "Light Medium": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
At the end of April, I started testing out a tinted moisturizer from Avon and have been really impressed by both the formulation and coverage so I thought I'd share it with y'all today. The Avon Ideal Flawless Tinted Moisturizer Lotion ($15 CAD) promises lightweight coverage and hydration, it is formulated with light-adjusting pigments and has SPF 20.

What it is:
-feather-light tinted moisturizer that provides both coverage and moisture
-contains light-adjusting pigments
-gives a natural and dewy finish

The tinted moisturizer comes in a simple squeeze tube. The nozzle dispenser is quite wide and flat so it does get pretty messy.

Formulation & Pigmentation:
The formulation of the Avon Ideal Flawless Moisturizer Lotion is quite thin, probably one of the thinnest tinted moisturizer/BB Cream I have tried. Despite it being a bit thin and runny, the coverage it gives is really great. I got the shade "Light Medium", which looks a tad dark for me but after it's blended it actually matches my skin tone quite well (I am NC20)!
Aside from the coverage, I am really impressed with the lightweight yet cushion-y texture. I have a lot of bumps, enlarged pores, and blemishes on my skin so a lot of foundations and BB creams cake on me, accentuating all the unevenness. But with this one my skin texture looks dramatically improved!
The finish is actually pretty matte, but the product isn't drying and doesn't cling to dry spots.
Here is an before and after shot:
I am absolutely in love with this product, I think it has everything I've been looking for in a tinted moisturizer/BB Cream. It blends well, doesn't accentuate my pores and unevenness, and gives surprisingly good coverage! I strongly recommend this (the price is very affordable, the product is currently on sale for $10 CAD! ).

Avon products are available online through an Avon Representative.
