Kosås Tinted Face Oil | Review

I have been in love with Kosås since I first began using their products a few years ago. Their skin-loving eco-friendly ingredients make using their products a joy, and there is never a sense that you are sacrificing anything other than unhealthy ingredients.

When they recently launched the Kosås Tinted Face Oil, I was more thrilled than you can imagine. I prefer light-coverage foundations and tinted moisturizers that allow the skin to breathe and to show through. That their variant is a tinted face oil, is undoubtedly a cause for celebration for me since it combines two of my favorite things: face oils and lightweight light coverage foundations.

In fact, Kosås Tinted Face Oil is truly a featherweight tinted oil that is nourishing and hydrating, and it adds a lighter veil of coverage that perfects the complexion. The texture is light and slightly oily, but like a dry oil, it melts into the skin and leaves behind no residue.

Simply shake the bottle, in order to emulsify the tinted oil, and then massage 2-4 drops into the skin for lighter coverage, and 4-6 drops into the for more full coverage. It is formulated to be applied, with your fingers, as you would a serum or a moisturizer, and therefore no brushes or sponges are necessary for proper application, and for the desired results. Skin is left luminous and even in tone– with blurred pores and imperfections. This is a dream-come-true for me, but if you only wear very full-coverage foundations this might not provide you with the level of opacity that you seek. That said, this formula is so exquisite that I highly recommend trying it!

Kosås Tinted Face Oil is available in 10 shades, of which I have swatched four below. I wear shade 01 because it has pink undertones that work well with my cool-toned complexion. That said, the 10 shades were created to be worn for up to 30 complexions because of the way in which the shades have been "optically blended" and because they magically adjust to the tone of each complexion. Therefore, there are a variety of shades that will likely work for each individual, as well.
According to Kosås Cosmetics,

Makeup meets skincare. Radiance-boosting botanicals absorb, allowing skin-perfecting pigment to even and illuminate complexions. A feather-weight medium coverage foundation and deeply hydrating skin elixir. Apply freely.

Tinted Face Oil is a feather-weight medium coverage foundation and deeply hydrating skin elixir. Three types of mineral pigment are delivered in a base of six active botanical oils to instantly even skin tone, minimize pores, and erase imperfections. Designed to be as easily applied as a daily serum or moisturizer, the breathable silky formula’s oils are quickly absorbed by the skin, leaving behind a perfecting layer of self-adjusting color with a velvety finish - no blending required.

  1. How innovative! I have never heard of a tinted face oil. I've been layering face oil under my foundation since the temps dropped, this sounds like a wonderful alternative!

    1. It really is innovative, and completely covet-worthy! I always add face oils to my foundations, and with this one you don't have to!

  2. Sounds great. I prefer a light coverage now even though I used to try to cover up more with fuller foundation. My skin looks better though with light coverage. And to think it has a built in oil to skip a step makes it sound even better.

    1. If you prefer lighter coverage, then I definitely recommend trying this. I still use my face oil of choice as part of my skincare routine, but I am using this as my foundation these days, and I really love it!

    1. It's a brilliant product, and I HIGHLY recommend it!

  4. I don't think I have ever seen a tinted oil! How cool! Great for those with dry skin!

    1. I hadn't before this one either, and it is just incredible! I have normal/combination skin and it works beautifully for me. I highly recommend it!

  5. Now I want to try it! I think 02 might work for my skin tone. I actually have a couple lipsticks from this brand, they're so creamy!

    1. This formula is incredible, and I highly recommend trying it. I think that 02 would be a good match for your complexion. I have a bunch of their lipsticks, and I absolutely love the creamy formula and the colors!
