Genius idea: An anti-aging tinted moisturizer that adapts to your skin tone

Dermaglow Nuvectin Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer

Remember the Smashbox lip gloss and cheek colour from a few years ago that adapted its pigment to suit your individual skin tone?

Well, now the exact same technology is available in a tinted moisturizer: Dermaglow Nuvectin Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer ($40,

A single tinted moisturizer—just one colour option—that works on ALL skin tones?


I wasn’t sure what to expect when I tried it—straight out of the tube, it’s a very chalky white colour. But as you blend it in, something magical happens. Suddenly, it’s the perfect match for your complexion and the coverage is impressive, especially for a tinted moisturizer (they’re known to be hit and miss for that).

Two more things that are great about this: unlike the Smashbox products, it doesn’t feel silicone-y at all, AND it’s got the added bonus of anti-aging peptides.

Maybe in 30 years—when we’re flying around on spaceships, all Jetsons-like—ALL of our makeup will be like this.

Almay’s Smart Shade makeup works just like this and they just launched an anti-aging version. Have you seen it?

How did I miss that? Thanks for the tip – now I want to compare the two brands to see if the Dermaglow is worth the extra $$$$. Hmmm…
